Smash > Smash Series Premiere Review: Be Our Star > Comments Page 2
Just not interested in a Broadway stage show. Will not watch in the future.
I taped it so I could watch "Castle"...sure glad I didn't miss Castle for this stupid show. I won't bother to watch it much more if I do at all. Castle has it beat by a long way.
Very weak. My husband made me watch this with him due to the excessive hype on Super Bowl Sunday. There was not one cliche left unturned, not one stereotype left behind. The writers must have watched "All About Eve" on a constant loop before digging in to write the pathetic script. The "conflicts" are contrived. The characters are an insult. Give us a break. Is everyone from Iowa a guileless fool? Do all gay men flap around like bitchy birds? Is every seasoned theater veteran really a soul-sucking black hole of immorality? Cringe-worthy TV at it's worst.
Make it an R rating show on Showtime ... I'd hold out for a McPhee sighting... But once the show opened with McPhee singing Over the Rainbow......her big moment week on AI.... I'm screaming CORNY!!!
Too insider New Yorky for my interest.
And I missed the Terry O'Quin show (HFO)for this crap. With such big name stars and producer and how musical show Glee has done was worth a shot. WRONG.
Became boring after the first 15 minutes - prob won't watch it again
Good show, I probably won't continue watching because it's not the kind of show I usually enjoy, but well done nonetheless! I gave a B.
Oh, puh-leeze! Will no one call this out for being the kind of cornball hoakum it is? There is every corny showbiz cliche in the business in this thing, from... where do I even begin? The naive ingenue from of all places... Iowa! Why is it always Iowa? Doesn't anyone get the news there- a career in theater is hard? Did her parents just wake up from a 24-year sleep and just get the news, their daughter wants to be an actor? And the brilliant, predatory director? The hard-boiled producer- in the midst of a divorce? The chipper little song-writing team... oh, but Debra Messing's husband wants her to stop this silly song-writing and concentrate on the adoption... hey, if they want to keep that perfect apartment, she'd better get writing! Oh... OK, they have the biggest smash on Broadway! Hey folks, the Sopranos and series like it brought actual realism to television 13 years ago. Why is it that we're still being fed this goo?
i didn't like it at all, I thought it had a great cast but the music grated after a while. And the plot was kind of 'soapy'. It will no doubt get great initial ratings due to the amount of hype but its not as good as HFO or Castle (despite this sites ongoing slating of HFO every week!) and so no room on the DVR for it.
It's an excellent pilot, I think. I immediately love "Karen" (Katherine McPhee) as a character though it's kinda hard to like everyone else for now. They just seem kinda scattered around with their own respective plots (divorce, adoption). The performances are great by the way. Definitely worth checking out. I'm giving it a "B".
It was incredible!
