Mr Chardy and I have been hooked on a TV series for a solid month and a half. We were obsessed, we would get the kids off to bed and BAM – the DVD would go in and it was game on. You see, we discovered Nashville. I had heard a few people talk about how fabulous it is and I am blaming Jamila from the Mamamia Outloud podcast for our addiction. Here have a look for yourself – a little sneak peak into season one if you are late to the party like me…
Now, I know we are a little behind with this one and many of you have probably already watched it all, but better late than never I suppose. It first aired back in 2012 on Foxtel, I think – so it wasn’t on free to air which would be why I missed it. We bought the first 3 seasons on DVD and once we had rolled the whole lot we turned to our new Apple TV and watched the current episodes from season 4 through iTunes. We are all caught up now and I am very thankful for that. Every night we just couldn’t stop at one, after each episode ended we would turn to each other and say “…just one more”… then it would be after midnight by the time we dragged ourselves to bed. It is fun to have a great series to watch during the quiet season though.
It is a fascinating insight into the music industry and even if you are not interested in music or even country music I promise that you will love it. It really has opened my eyes and I have a whole new appreciation for song writers and musicians. Actually before this I had no appreciation at all, had never really given it a second thought. They really are something else and have such a special gift – god I wish I could sing.
I am now obsessed with all music NASHVILLE and have downloaded the album from season 1. I can’t get the songs out of my head, love them!
So there you have it. This weeks recommendation.
