music helps make the show
26 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

I never thought that Jason Lee would be a fit for a part like this but after a couple of episodes I can't imagine any one else. Who ever is involved in the music end of the show really knows what they are doing and has a lot of respect for Memphis music. I think they are letting the supporting actors grow on their own. I really believe this is a winner but who knows with corporate executives now a days. If you think back on all the top TV series almost none started strong. This show needs some time but not very much. The main supporting actors are all seasoned in their own right. I would also like to say that the editing is also well down.One thing that irritates me about shows today is the common theme of loud music for back ground and constant swearing. this to me means that the story is not strong enough to carry it's self and production is aware of it. this show has none of that and I hope they keep it that way.
