too bad, they are toning down the parts that made it interesting - Elvis

now it's just another cop show set in memphis.

too bad True Blood is refusing to add Bubba

I watched most of this last year. Some I liked, others not so much. Glad they're giving it another try though.

I thought it suffered from the same problem of the late 80's Cop Rock

an earlier cop/musical show

they stuck in the premise and it never committed to the concept, so the waffleing undermined it.

now they are scaling back on Elvis, so it becomes just another big sky cop show with nothing to make it stand out from the pack

I was just in Memphis and I didn't see him anywhere!(just kidding) I like this show. It has a different beat to it.(get it, Memphis Beat) anyway, I think this show will be successfull. They need to develope the other characters a little more to mix it up and keep it interesting. As big a Elvis fan as I am and the Sun Record sound, don't theme it too much on just that. Maybe catch someone breaking in Sun studios and he's mesmerized, when he touches the same mike Elvis and others did or help someone out, thats fallin on bad times, that was a backup singer at Stax studios. Just keep it fresh, like the new show Justified.
