pretty good show last night! lots of action. Totally took away any good vibes I had about Debra Messing's character...lol!
Couldn't agree more! This reviewer is USELESS. I hope she doesn't get paid to do it. It was however just like last week's. Very poor grammar. She merely just gives an overview of the episode through comprising a synopsis together. Please change Carla. This was very painful to read. Is she still in middle school or something?
I don’t feel sorry for Ivy. The makers are trying very hard to convince us that Ivy is a poor chorus girl who has waited to make it big all her life long, and when the opportunity comes knocking, is insecure. Karen and Dev are cute. Yet I don’t like the obvious ways they shove it in our face on what a great catch he is! I hope they don’t go the clichéd route by showing a premature breakup. I know they need some conflict in Karen's life. But she has, like Ivy puts it, enough on her plate already. If anything, they should take their relationship to the next level. Michael and Julia have a great chemistry, but their scenes looked contrived. Michael looks like he's trying way too hard to win Julia back, completely oblivious to the fact that he has a baby (wasn't he reluctant to take up a full time role because he wanted to spend time with his child?) and a loving wife. All he had to do was look at Julia and all his hormones start raging like a green teenager. mehhhh
I am really hoping Ivy loses the part for Marilyn. I understand that she's insecure and we are supposed to feel somewhat sorry for her, but she is just such a bitch! I don't care how insecure you are there's no need to be so rude to someone who told you she's not even a threat! What the heck! She is just setting herself up to fail with all her insecurities which is just sad. I loved Karen's rendition of "It's A Man's World". I thought it was really interesting and well done. She had a beautiful voice and I love hearing it. And people criticizing the reviewer, don't be rude. Comment on the show not the person writing the review. jeez.
This wasn't a review. It was just a synopsis with some bad commentary thrown in. And did anyone review this before you posted it? My review of your grammar would be just as lame as your "so-called review" of this episode. A good review is not just personal opinions, it is a critique which gives an educated, objective view of the show.
To say that Julia and Michael were kissing in front of her house is a synopsis, to say that you didn't like it is a personal opinion, to say that it was a very predictable plot device used purely as a tool to enhance conflict, is an objective review.
Are you paid to do this? Or is this an open blog for any hulu member to post a review?
I am still undecided on this show. I think that I will give it three more episodes. There is just no character development. Its just too predictable but that would have been cool if it added to the story. Julia's son character is so awful, it seems like he is a boring version of Jake Harper from TAHM. The entire plot of Julia's family is silly to say the least.And Tom's assistant is played by an actor whose face is annoying to say the least.
Thank God the main characters are interesting. Ivy and Karen together in any scene makes good TV and Derek is an interesting character.So hope that they work on the secondary plots.
BTW what about Tom and Derek's animosity, it requires a backstory
This review was awful. You sound so negative and snobby. Like you have to condescend to the show. If you're so uninterested in the cast then maybe you should review a show you like. This review was painful to read.
I thought the scene when Julia was coming home to reprimand her son seemed faked. Of course she would be angry, but I didn't think she would be that upset over smoking pot. My favorite scene had to be Let's be Bad I love that we actually saw it like a broadway show. Karen's rendition of A Man's world was fantastic! I hope this show doesn't get cancelled.
In case you missed it, Karen did give her boyfriend the info on the press secretary and then they made out in the back of the car.........
I, too, think the Julia/Micheal thing was a bit predictable.
I already didn't like Ivy, well, now I don't even more. She's a self centered.......nevermind........I really hope she loses this part.
Eileen couldn't have pick a better person to be her snoop on Julia and Tom.
Tom's scenes with his "date" really didn't do anything for me.
Anyone know how many more episodes there are?
I think what we saw in this episode between Ivy and Karen had a lot to do with how one has what the other needs. Neither of them are perfect and it looks to me like these two need to feed of each other's strengths cause those are their weaknesses. Ivy was an annoying diva but at the same time those are rooted from her insecurities. Karen's an optimistic and hopeful person so she has confidence. I think the show will continue to feed on that and see how these two characters develop through the workshops.
As for Julia, I like how this gives her more than just her work but it feels a too rushed and forced for me. There's chemistry between her and Michael but I think they could've built things up better. It's been years since they last saw each other then on a drunken night, they just end up kissing. I would've wanted more build up there so that the moment meant more. Leo seeing it was predictable and it just leads to a predictable confrontation. They should've given this more time.
I do not condone cheating but I do live Michael! This is a musical show, which people seem to forget as some of the comments made last week about some of the musical numbers. The song Michael sang to Julia worked for me.
I really hope that Dev dose not let RJ hit on him. I have a feeling that is going to happen and that Karen will have been right all along, woman's intuitions are usually right!
I do not feel sorry for Ivy. She has super low self esteem and is she still wanted to sleep with Derek after what he said to her then she deserves all that will come of that relationship.
I really liked this episode.
I am liking Ivy less and less, after last week I did not like her and well now I really do not. I hope she loses the role, Karen is far more deserving.
For me I did not find the Julia storyline far fetched at all. I am sure in an adoption process every move you make especially one regarding the law has to be reported to the agency. The one way that Julia knew she could get through to Leo was to use the adoption as the reason he has to be careful and not use drugs, he is a teenager and any other reason she would give he would not listen too.
The writing on this show isn't great. It's ok which is a shame because they've got a really talented cast of characters. The story line is so tired and predictable. Who didn't guess that Julia's son would see her kiss Michael? And why oh why would Karen need to sing, "It's A Man's World"? She's in a healthy and happy relationship with a man who loves and supports her. All he asked her to do was wear a sexy dress and we're supposed to feel like she's some downtrodden woman? Thin. The whole thing makes me sad because this show has so much potential. I hope that the writers can get it together.
Another really good episode from Smash. On Twitter, so many of the stars were commenting about the number, "Let's Be Bad" being the best number they've done so far. It was good, but I just didn't astound me the way I expected it to. I guess that's why Julia needs to stop making out with her actors and start writing a book that complements and explains the numbers! And I totally agree with you on the Ivy drama. Karen does come across as a little naive and unfailingly kind, but Ivy is such a jerk to her! I don't buy that Ivy is supposed to be the antagonist here, because they highlight all of her vulnerabilities. But she makes me want to roll my eyes every time she comes on the screen.
