Toups

Smash: Discussion Thread

He;'s AWFUl but it's also bad casting. Toups--episode four and especially five were a huge improvement and thewy seem to have embraced their sopainess. I'd give it another chance (episode three was terrible and deadly boring).

Four and five were good. I'm getting tired of hearing the same songs from the show though.

I'm going to keep watching because the show is original and feeds my Broadway addiction but I definitely consider it a primetime soap and not a cool one like Revenge. For me it's just a guilty pleasure. A badly written one. It's basically Monday night All My Children. LOL!

It was funny seeing Thorsten because without the spectre of Zach Slater hanging over him I suddenly thought he was hot. Nothing like playing an [email protected]#$%^&*] to drain the sexy from a character. Which brings me to.... Michael and Julia. I love Will Chase but watching Michael basically stalk Julia while he treats his wife and child like he's just waiting to murder them and dump them in the Hudson River was disgusting. I felt like I was watching the leadup to an episode of L&O: Criminal Intent.

marceline, ITA with your first paragraph, I had a "moment" watching last night. I'm an awful TV viewer these days, I never give anything a shot and usually watch reruns on Antenna TV, but sometimes I do randomly fall into a pattern of catching a new show week after week. Last night I was on my computer, as per usual, and noticed that I kept looking up at the screen and I actually asked myself what is it about this show?? I came to the very quick conclusion that it asks absolutely NOTHING of me so I don't resist giving in, it's soapy and incredibly easy to follow. It is fluff, and whereas Glee is satirical, Smash is straight up camp at times. I'm not a musical theatre actor or fan really, but I do enjoy the stuff where they're rehearsing as I am familiar with that dynamic and the snarky [[email protected]#$%^&*] that goes on. I also enjoy the New York aspect. Houston and Messing have definitely been better, but I don't really care. It's kind of like the "once upon a time" careers of Falcon Crest and The Colbys cast members. :lol: I'll eventually go back and catch the first few episodes.

That's actually why I keep tuning in (besides to hear all the inacuracie people on Broadway World gripe about--come on, if cops or lawyers or doctors complained about the way they were shown on tv as being false, and some do, it would be far worse). I shake my head at so much of it but I find it appealing I think partly just because there's nothing else on network tv like it. That seems liek a weird reason to watch a show, but it's an easy watch and in that way seems refreshing.

And yes Will Chase who I usually love is UBER creepy and unappealing on this show--more with each episode.

Is Will Chase the director who seems to be doing a Simon Cowell-meets-House impersonation?

No, Will Chase is the guy who slipped Debra Messing the sausage (on the show and in real life).

The timing is sort of unclear. Here's a People article:

I thought Messing came off as so unlikeable in her other work. Is she any better here?

You mean The Starter Wife? I never saw that. I thought she was great on Will & Grace. She's got great comedic timing.

Inneresting, thanks for that. It's hard to be the spouse of an actor. Showmances are a reality. Hopefully they were both already unattached.
