So far so good
10 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So far, the show seems pretty good. I generally don't get hooked into shows right away, it sometimes takes years before I "discover" them. But with the case of Memphis Beat I was willing to give it a shot.

Jason Lee never seems to be out of place in anything he does, and so is the case here. He plays the sort of "against the grain" detective pretty well. He's harnessed a little bit of "Earl" and a little bit of "Brodie" from his roles in My Name is Earl, and Mallrats respectively. But he's also injected a little of something new.

The entire Elvis thing did not sound good at first, but the way the show handles it is pretty good. It's just sort of "out there" floating around the show and not an integral part.

The rest of the cast so far, quite honestly, is sort of forgettable. No disrespect to any of the actors, but no one really jumped out to me as a core part of the show. Maybe that will come with time, and a few more episodes.

The stories are so far pretty well done. The music score, has been excellent. This show has some of the best, most fitting music of anything on television. The music is part of the star power here, it really pulls the show around from place to place, and sets the moods perfectly.

I will keep watching...
