Critic Reviews for Nashville: Season 5

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

The original tenor of the series is one of the things that made it so appealing in the first place. Add to this that the tempo of the narrative is ideal, and episodes never drag.

Fans who have grown weary of the show's soapy, breakneck pace should definitely give CMT's Nashville a chance. The show and its characters appear to finally be getting better with age.

The pace has been slowed down -- not to a crawl, but to allow for some breathing room, to let characters have full scenes of dialogue, and reactions to those dialogues.

The much-discussed slower pace of the action is a boon to the show's central relationships. Can't be said enough. Avery and Juliette, Deacon and Rayna - they finally have time to talk!

It's a welcome change, and fans who have grown weary of the show's soapy, breakneck pace should definitely give CMT's Nashville a chance. The show and its characters appear to finally be getting better with age.

The shift to CMT -- and the subsequent easing up on the show's former breakneck pace -- may be the best thing about the new season.
