I Like It!
14 August 2011 | by PartialMovieViewerSee all my reviews

I am not into watching shows sight-unseen, but I was kind of horns waggled into this one. I was putzing around upstairs and heard some really awesome blues echoing from downstairs. I just about tripped down the stairs to see what was making that beautiful music. To my astonishment those melodious notes were coming from the speakers in the tube and on the TV was 'Memphis Beat.' From the first time I watched this show, I was hooked. Is this the best show on TV? Nope, but it sure seems to be a keeper. The story lines are well written and well thought-out. There is no particular actor whose main job is to snuff the supporting cast or make them look totally inadequate. Sadly, many shows are so hung up on the main characters' hubris, that it chases me away. No snobs here or super medical examiners here, just cast members actually supporting each others' strengths
