Re: “Memphis Beat: "Polk Salad Annie"

Cdel: Ya learn sumthin' new every day! Perhaps the record company spelled it incorrectly because they THOUGHT that's how it was spelled. Just like Hollywood's lame attempt to imitate the true southern accents in this show and all the other movies.

Re: “Memphis Beat: "Polk Salad Annie"

It's made from the Poke weed so it should be Poke Salad but I disgress....Sounds like this was the first episode I might have actually enjoyed, but I was watching the All-Star game. What I don't like is the show seems to portray Memphis to be a larger populated version of Mayberry and Dwight is Andy Taylor. He seems to know all the characters, their family tree and town connections. I doubt many actual Memphis detectives have that depth of knowledge and downhome "shucks & gosh darnit" mentality.

Re: “Memphis Beat: "Love Me Tender"

Episode 3 was about to be strike 3 for me but I'll call it a foul ball. The "Fancy" song with "New Orleans" in it almost ruined it for me. But it was a little bit of an improvement.

Re: “Memphis Beat: "Baby, Let's Play House"

Once again I was underwhelmed in the show's overall premise of being a "Memphis" based story. Like you said, they're hitting all over the board with the featured music, but not really hitting the mark with the expectations one from the city would have. Strike 2 in my book.
