I lived in Texas for over 14 years. My favorite author is William Faulkner. ‘Memphis Beat’ is the most accurate portrayal of the South and Southerners I have ever seen on TV. Everything from the music, acting, directing and writing is a 101 course for anyone curious about the charm, dignity, foibles and culture of every Southern town I have lived in or visited. Bravo TNT!

Memphis Beat rocks, So glad its coming back. Finally a show with a family appeal with little to no violence. If the networks cancell this show at any point they should have their heads checked

Loved Jason Lee’s smooth wrap-up at the end of each show with some emotional case solved and some beautiful song to tie it all together. Can’t wait to get back to Memphis Beat!


Karen Green March 17, 2011 at 5:16 pm

I really, really hope this season has a season 4. The characters are so interesting and well defined and there is so little violence. I love it. I wish there were more than 10 new shows.

Yes, I am glad Memphis Beat is coming back in June. I watched all the reruns recently on TNT and really look forward to the show. I am one of the oldies who loves Elvis and really enjoy the characters.
