Smash > Smash Review: On Broadway ... Maybe? > Comments Page 2
I agree with your 2 song choices but I also have to throw in Ivy's "impromptu" performance when she was called in to the event that Eileen and Co was being booted out of. She did a SPECTACULAR job! :)
I'm very excited to see. What made you to Ivy took pity?
Loved the show...The first hour was spectacular. I think that they dragged out a few scenes in the second hour, but overall it was a great Season 2 Premier.
I like the new characters Jeremy and Jennifer Hudson's character. I do not like how weak they are making Derek. This plot seemed forced and not genuine. Eileen's character needs to really bring more venom to the table. Personally, I think that a person in her role, would be a little more tough as nails. This is NY and Broadway. Somehow, she comes across as week, when we all know that she is strong. I think that she should show Jerry once and for all that she is not taking his shenanigans, maybe by releasing dirt on him, I am sure that he has plenty of skeletons in the closet. Something needs to happen with Eileen to give her more strength. This is ANgelica Huston and she has strong acting abilities - I hope the directors wake up and let her use them more often.
Two thumbs up for your of the Season 2 Premiere of Smash w
As a Derek/Karen shipper I was most interested in the moment that the interrupted - when they almost went there! But that is what I suppose Jimmy is there for - to provide a viable third leg to a romantic triangle for Karen. I did find it fairly laughable that someone who is IN New York working as a bartender would absolutely shun someone who could really put them in touch with a mover and shaker in the industry. In reality, would that even happen?
I loved your review and agree with just about everything you pointed out. As a viewer I was really pleased to see that the writers listened to what the audience and critics weren't responding to, and really tried to fix the weak points. The changes are all fantastic! And Jimmy and Katen seem to have great chemistry.. I wasn't looking forward to that pairing but that Jeremy guy is great. Can't wait for the rest of the season to unfold!
Seriously Carla? Were we watching the same show? Karen is annoying (even though I love Katherine McPhee) and Ivy is obviously the superior talent. The only complaint that I have about this show is the writing for Ivy. I think its so ordinary and typical to paint Ivy and Karen as rivals. It would be much more interesting to have made them friends and have them learn how to balance their friendship while being professional rivals. Instead they made Karen weak, insecure, annoying and bad at her job. Then to make things worse they painted Ivy as a talented bitch who doesn't get the job. They really need to make the two female leads people that we care about and want to see succeed rather than people we are annoyed by and constantly yelling at to make better decisions. Come on fix Ivy!
