Just finished watching the recent NASHVILLE episode and everyone was just so tactless. I seriously think that the show is actively trying to make us hate every character. Because, honestly, there’s not a single character I like on that show. I absolutely loved Scarlett and Gunner in Season 1, but they’ve ruined both characters for me this season. Especially in the recent episode, they’re acting like they’ve never had a relationship with each other. There was no consideration at all between the two characters (especially Gunnar), the Zoey actress can’t really act, and just..ugh…WHERE ARE MY SWEET DUETS!!!!
I honestly just watch the show to see how bad it gets. I’m sorry for venting…this show has so much wonderful talent and potential and it’s frustrating when that is wasted. :)
I’ll be in my HarveyxDonna tag if anyone needs me…they’re a prime example of how you do a good pairing. :)
Apparently it doesn’t matter if I’m in high school, college, or if I have a job. There will always be too much work and too little time to get it all done.
Anonymous asked: do you want Jetsy to exist before or after Dandy ?
Um…well, I want both to happen very badly. But Dandy already exists, so I just hope we’ll get something, anything, Jetsy-related soon.
I need Jetsy to happen. I NEED IT.
I’m so glad that you guys got so many delicious Danny and Mindy bits for this episode. The whole episode was just so adorable and wonderful. If there is one thing that I didn’t like, it was the fact that Jeremy and Betsy were the only cast members that were not in the episode. Despite the fact that Edward Weeks is such a huge fan of the pairing, we haven’t really gotten anything from either character (individually or together) so far this season. I love the Peter character, but I can’t help but feel that he is taking a lot of screen time considering that he’s a new character.
When people are sad about their otp not touching or kissing enough… After 2,5 seasons this is about the closest ‘touch’ darvey shippers got.
Oh but happy days, then we got a kiss …
and that was about it
In another part of town, Scarlett awkwardly walks in on Avery and Gunnar mid writing sesh. Gunnar bails on cue and Scarlett hits up Avery (once the dumbest fuck in Nashville) for some mentoring. Soon they are lovers once more. Meanwhile, Zoey breaks the “girl code” and starts going steady with Gunnar, who’s getting less boyishly charming with every episode.
Showcasing for the Music City press, Scarlett sings her pretty ditty “Every Time I Fall in Love” for a transfixed Bluebird crowd. With all the cuts between Scarlett on stage and lustily hypnotized Gunnar and Avery in the audience (laying the subtext on a little thick much?), it’s simply amazing how such a big elephant can fit in such a small room."
Posting because the last line made me laugh out loud. What a horrible episode! One reviewer said that they change couples so much and that those couples change their feelings so much, that I find it hard to root for anyone and that summarizes my feelings exactly.
All of a sudden, Jeremy became a frazzled, insecure teddy bear we all wanted to hold and eat Cheetos with. “I have to say it’s been a blast,” Ed Weeks tells TVGuide.com. “I think him coming back from hiatus fat was a big catalyst for a lot of the changes. It sort of unlocked a way of playing him … which I think is A. more comedic for me to play and B. I think its probably more relatable to the audience because we all have vulnerabilities and its nice when characters find flaws.”
To give Jeremy the look of a sexy body pillow, Weeks decided to skip the Big Macs and go straight for the padded onesie, which, as it turns out, is as comfortable as it is awkward to get into. “Normally I go into Chris Messina's trailer and order him to zip me up, which he's gradually getting used to,” Weeks says.
We can only assume Messina, who plays Danny, must have been a little relieved when he heard Jeremy’s days in the fat suit are numbered. After “becoming increasingly exasperated,” Jeremy will go to fat camp to lose the weight just in time for Mindy's Christmas episode. Unfortunately, we won't actually see Jeremy doing his best Heavyweights impression at fat camp, but his weight loss will inspire a whole new range of problems for the doctor. While Jeremy struggles to keep food out of his mouth, he’ll also be trying to get a few women into his bed. “I think Jeremy probably has had several months without any action from the ladies because he’s sort of been fat and he’s felt a bit bad about himself,” Weeks explains. “I don’t think Jeremy’s very comfortable in his skin, when he’s thin or when he’s fat, but certainly when he’s fat I think his mojo was down to an all-time low. So now [that] he’s thin again, he goes on a bit of a lady bender which is quite fun.”
Oddly, for a show centered so much on dating, this will be the first time viewers will get to witness the so-called lady killer at work and Weeks promises fans are in for a treat. “From what I can imagine about Jeremy, I’m sure there’s a certain level of cheesiness there,” he says. “He probably wears a bit of fake tan and spends too long doing his hair. He’s a narcissist. So I’m sure dating Jeremy is a bit like dating a himbo to a degree.”
And while Jeremy will just be looking for “easy sex” right now, Weeks hopes we’ll get to see Jeremy in a real relationship some day. "I always say this, but I would love to see maybe something to happen between him and Besty (Zoe Jarman). I think that would be really interesting for both characters. Because I think he would give her a bit more of an adult worldview and she would probably make him into a better person,” he says.
Jeremy could definitely use the support of a girlfriend in Tuesday’s episode when his father (Alan Dale) comes to visit. “I think Jeremy’s always been somewhat of a disappointment for his father,” Weeks says. Uninterested in Jeremy’s love of moisturizer and eclairs, his dad will find himself bonding more with the frat bro Peter (Adam Pally). “He loves sports all these masculine traits that I think Jeremy’s dad really appreciates and probably wanted in a son if he’s being honest with himself,” Weeks says. “It’s really about Jeremy not being quite enough of a man for his father. That’s the sort of slightly sad backstory to it. But it’s really fun to play because obviously Jeremy realizes he doesn’t need the approval of somebody like that and he and Peter bond over it as well, in a weird roundabout kind of way.”
Wow, he really is the biggest Jeremy x Betsy shipper, isn’t he? I really do love him and I think he makes a very good point. They’re so mismatched that it shouldn’t work, but it also makes perfect sense. They were so good together in the Thanksgiving episode last year. Seriously, if the writers can make something as random as Morgan x Tamara happen, then they can make Jeremy x Betsy happen.
It’s interesting that in the current cast, there are only four characters that have been there since the pilot- Mindy, Danny, Jeremy, and Betsy (and they all have a “y” at the end of their names- just noticed that!). Given the fact that the show has really shook up it’s cast lately (and still does), it makes me really love these four characters.
