'Smash' Bollywood Fail
The struggling musical drama goes all wrong with its take on the Bollywood musical
While I'm far from the "ideal demographic" that NBC is targeting, I continue to watch Smash week after week. And while I can't say exactly why (is it the plot, the characters, the music?) I nevertheless look forward to it. By the way, I can't even get my WIFE to watch it.... her Masters in Music has her in front of The Voice instead. Go figure.
Anyway, count me with the many who say that the humorless "reviewer" was way off base with unimportant crticisim of the Bollywood number. I found it very entertaining, so much so that I've watch it again several times "On Demand." (Perhaps it's Katherine McPhee's perfectly undulating tummy.) I know nothing about actual Bollywood musicals but I got a big kick out of the choreography. And for the "reviewer:" this was a DREAM SEQUENC... it has to be only as Karen Cartwright's IMAGINATION.
Love the show, love the actors...and I love the SINGING AND DANCING! I would like to see Ivy get a dose of her own medicine and Karen get the part of Marilyn for goodness sake!
I thought the Bollywood scene was brilliant. I hope the show comes back for a second season...it's entertaining and fun. I think the story line and acting is magnificent. I very much wanted to hate this show, but I ended up loving it.
Loved the Bollywood number!!!!! Everyone did a great job..........very entertaining.....and Debra Messing was just beautiful!!!! Love her.......hope she gets another EMMY for this show...........she is superb!!!!!!!!!!!!
Overall, I LOVE this show. It is one of my favorites.
I enjoyed it. But then I was raised on musicals. I get so tired of shows with blood, guts and gore.
