Is anyone actually watching Smash?
After all the hype over the last few months, I felt like my husband and I were the only people in the U.S. not watching the premiere of this show. But honestly, from what I could see in the promos, most of the dialogue was cliche after tired cliche. “I’d keep an eye on that one!” “There’s something about her–she glows.” etc. etc. Oh, brother. A middle-schooler could write better than that.
I especially felt sorry for the great Angelica Huston and all the cliche lines and actions(throwing a glass of wine in someone’s face–how very original!) .
But I realize that perhaps the promos were not an accurate portrayal of the show.
So what does everyone think? Or were there others besides me and my husband who didn’t bother to watch?
Is it really a good show? Should I forget about the silly promos and give Smash a second chance?
In case anyone is wondering, we have a daughter who is “in the business.” She’s a professional stage manager, and she just landed a gig with a Broadway producer. (We’re so excited!) So we’re kind of sort of used to the real theater thing, at least second-hand. I would love for the show to be really good, because it would be a way of experiencing what my daughter experiences.
