Please bring this show back. It is my husband’s favorite. Wish you could have one more song in each episode.

Dear God! The show is great…he’s terrific as is Alfre. So tired of having good stories and darn good actors and actresses have to give way to the inane shows that fill the networks. I try not to like anything too much because before you know it, it disappears! After the first Memphis Beat, I was, unfortunately, I was totally hooked! It’s so really really good…Jason Lee is fabulous…and Alfre…well, all the great words about her have been said. If I knew how to write a support letter to the right people, I would!

Please bring back Memphis Beat. Love that down home southern hospitality and the characters a so warm and friendly. One thing you could do is mix the songs with Jason Lee so we could hear him better. Good singer and actor. Really like that tall geeky character who plays the “third” banana and Jason Lee’s side-kick is excellent. Ditto their female boss.

We discovered the show late in the season and wonder where and when the re-runs are going to “re-run?!

What happened to “Memphis Beat”.
I think it’s the best show that’s been on in a long time. How can I find out if it will continue another season
