Mark Brennan Rosenberg: 10 Reasons to Watch Nashville
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
If you're not watching Nashville every Wednesday night on ABC, you're just plain crazy. It is, by far, the best new show of the 2012-2013 season and the critics agree. If that isn't enough, I have ten very good reasons you should be watching one of the best new dramas to debut in the past few years. 1. The Eye Candy. If you're a lady (or a gay), it doesn't matter how old you are, there is a hot guy for you to lust after at any age. Jonathon Jackson who was cute on General Hospital is all grown up and looking fine as hell. Without A Trace vet and super-hottie Eric Close co-stars as well as Charles Esten, who is apparently pushing fifty and is hotter than most 30-year-olds I've seen recently. But the breakout hottie on Nashville is by far Sam Palladio, who plays Gunner, an up-and-coming country music singer who has all of the ladies in Nashville swooning. If you're a guy and you're looking for a little eye candy, I have two words for you: Hayden Panettiere. 2. It's li ...

Fall 2012 TV Preview: More thrills and chills, fewer laughs
Denver Post - over 4 years
Television will do its best to scare, unnerve and cliffhang this fall. With the rare exception, the dramas look much more promising than the comedies. A range of old dramatic genres and types — the lawman, the superhero, the archvillain, the detective, the catfight — are getting modern updates. The comedic offerings for Fall 2012 are a middling bunch, although history suggests some comedies take time to grow into themselves. (“Modern Family” was an instant hit but “Seinfeld”and “Cheers” were famously slow starters.) Time for a couch potato’s version of speed dating vis-a-vis the 18 new series, with premiere dates. Guess which ones will make it past Thanksgiving? The six best: “The New Normal” (NBC) — A gay couple who want to have a child meet a single mom who wants to escape her overbearing (and hilarious) mother and start anew. Ryan Murphy (“Glee”) presents a smart peek at old stereotypes and new formulations of family. Andrew Ranells and Justin Bartha are the committed coupl ...
