Good episode Wednesday night. Scarlett kind of redeemed herself in this latest episode. I do like her singing. And, I wasn't surprised at all to see Juliette bail on her 2nd "wedding."

ABC Studios does it again - No Blu-ray release

I'm finally getting caught up with upcoming DVD/Blu-ray releases and discovered that ABC Studios are being A-holes yet again. Early info is that this series will only be released on DVD.

Needless to say that I won't be buying it on DVD.

Idiots.

Thought this was the best individual show. A lot going on. Lots of annoying soap but at least well done.

I've been streaming "The West Wing" lately where Connie Britton has a several episode arc; it's interesting to see a younger version of herself playing a smart, erudite and slightly smug east coast....oh, you know, every Aaron Sorkin character.

I finally got a chance to watch the last two episodes.

Is it me, or is Maddie Deacon's daughter? Am I late to the party on that one?

The names of Rayna's (Connie Britton) daughters escape me, but her oldest daughter was fathered by Deacon. This was implied/insinuated/established pretty early on in the series.

I somehow missed the early implication of the fatherhood of Maddie.

Wow, this series has really started taking some interesting (to say the least) plot twists. It's slowly becoming a modern day "Dallas" (1980's version), and I like it!

I finally got to watch last night's episode (OK only a few hours after it aired) and I really enjoyed it. It needs to do better in the ratings.

But, that said I think they screwed up when they used reels of audio tape for the burning sequence. Who the Hell records on tape anymore? I know, it is more dramatic to do it with reels of tape, instead smashing more HDDs.

I wondered the same thing. Maybe that producer isn't as bleeding edge as he thinks he is.

Don't they still record studio audio on master tape? And then make the digital tracks from that analog master? Thought that was the way it was still being done.

What is this "tape" you speak of? LOL . No, tape has been pretty much replaced by digital recording to hard drives at this point. The huge studio mixing consoles and 2" tape I learned to use in the 80's have gone the way of buggy whips.

Oh well. I guess it's more dramatic to yank off wads of tape from several reels and set fire to the pile than just tossing a hard drive into the drum. biggrin.gif

My take is that this show is really frustrating. The Scarlett and Gunnar subplot is maddening. It is so forced and poorly done and they are doing everything they can to keep these two from just singing which they do very well. Then at the end, we want you (Scarlett) as a solo artist? Where have we seen that already? For crying out loud. Deacon is the only interesting one. I'm tired of Juliette's up and down. Rayna is a b*tch. Teddy is an ahole. Do they have to make so many twists in order to keep this interesting when I thought the music business was the attractive thing? Just like that show Revenge. They can't stick to a concept and have to make as many subplots as possible and derail the actual interesting parts. I'm about done.

Excuse me, but the huge studio consoles still exist. Instead of being analog, they are digital. It is fun to watch the pots slide up and down as a recording is played back thru the console, since the position of the pot is remembered as part of the recording.

But, pretty much all of the final mixing is done on computer now, allowing for non-linear editing of the audio, just like video. Looking at a widescreen monitor of bits and pieces of a recording is really neat.

Ya, analog boards, analog tape recording and linear editing have certainly died out ages ago.

I can't believe there have been no posts since March! Is anyone still watching this thoroughly excellent series? This season just keeps getting better and better, kind of like the old "Dallas" set to country music with great songs every week.

I quit watching after the horrible first show of this 2nd season. This show was walking a line. I really liked the songs and performances and I really wish it was about the music. Just too dang sick and tired of the soap.

I almost quit watching like you, but the 2nd season has gotten better, and much more about the music.

It's not as bad as last season, but it's still only passable.

If you're being serious, you're definitely not the target demographic for this show, so you probably made the right decision when you stopped waching.
