Smash

The first season of Smash was a bit of a roller coaster: from hate (Leo & Ellis, I'm looking at you) to love (Ivy, duh) to indifference (What are the chorus people's names? Who cares? Not me) oh how these idiots played with our emotions. Even if some of the characters and their story lines were deplorable the show found a great balance of plot and song (take a hint Glee) with just the right amount of sex (gay, straight & bi), manipulation, Jonas Brothers (1), singing, dancing, theater secrets, mini Meryl Streeps (1) and drinks in the face (5+). Karen.A Congrats Karen!

Season 1 Episode 15
Derek was in prime Derek-form last night. The weirdest thing he did was go into the wardrobe closet and pretty much masturbate to Karen and Ivy while fantasizing about them and touching Rebecca's clothes. Creeeeeepsville. The lamest thing he did was tell Karen this right before she went on stage, "Whatever happens next don't ever forget you're a star and I do understand love." So, now you're in LOVE with Karen? Oh, pshaw! Derek -- Marilyn of the Week It's a total tie!
Season 1 Episode 14
I want two pizzas and a bottle of Vicodin."She died!" The penultimate episode of Smash brought just about every relationship (and possible combination of couples) to a frothy boil. They're either breaking up (Ivy & Derek, Tom & Julia), making up (Dev & Karen), fucking up (Dev & Ivy) or looking like twinsies (Eileen & Nick -- more on this later). That dancer, whose name I will never learn, said it right, "You go out of town and all hell breaks loose!" Preach!
Season 1 Episode 13
width: 310px;;">Kiss My Marilyn Ring, Bitches It would have to be unlucky episode 13 that turned everyone into their worst selves. Everything felt wrong last night. From the motley crew leaving for Boston from Grand Central (um, Metro North goes to mid-CT not all the way to Beantown, you need to go to Penn Station for THAT) to Dev asking Karen to marry him (um, don't you know she's in TECH! She can't get engaged during TECH!), it was all wrong. I'm blaming the number 13 and praying 14 brings us better things. IvyC+ 13 brought Ivy back to her pathetic, lovelorn, un-confident self.
Season 1 Episode 12
Ooo, the gangs all here! Oh brother. Rebecca's weird sucking of Karen's dick, trying to change every little thing in Bombshelland generally demanding dumb shit is getting to be a bit much. If she really is threatened by Karen, why build her up so much? Rebecca needs to take a page from the Ivy Lynn school of backstabbing and stand behind a van and plot Karen's demise. It's working for her, it would work for you Reebs. Kudos on the insulting Indian accent though. Marilyn of the Week Okay, I think you probably know what's coming.
Season 1 Episode 11
Let Uma Be Your Star Um, comedy gold, people! Then, Frank won't meet with her and talk about anything (mature) so instead Jules just dumps all their baggage out on the guidance counselor at Leo's school (yeah, right, Leo goes to school). Well played, Julia. Then, when Leo is all being a baby about his parent's relationship falling apart, Julia is the only mature one in the room and puts that little idiot in his place. Loved. It. All. Well, except for her clothes but that goes without saying. #TooManyScarves DerekB- These acid flashbacks slash Karen fantasies have got to stop.
Season 1 Episode 10
Understudy" Burn, Baby, Burn Smash teased Episode 10 as being the big night we would meet the "new" Marilyn, movie star, Ms. Rebecca Duvall (aka Uma Thurman). Sticking true to form as always, Smash did not introduce her until the last possible moment. Literally. Karen filled in for Ms. Duvall the whole night as this episode's namesake -- the Understudy. Of course, Karen was half amazing (singing) and half terrible (taking direction; knowing how to be prepared for work; and her Marilyn voice, yikes!). Maybe, just maybe, I'm not giving Smashenough credit.
Season 1 Episode 9
Wha Happened? Last night lots of subplots spiraled out of control and came to a head. My favorite of them all wasn't Julia's affair being exposed, Ivy's pill-popping ruining "Heaven on Earth" or Tom's non-interest in John, it was "Sheesh, she has my sunglasses!?" The case of the mistaken sunglasses really was the through-line of the night. Ivy & Karen bumped into each other - literally - at an audition and dropped their sunny g's and just like an episode of Three's Company, they mistakenly took each other's.
Season 1 Episode 8
Mini Meryl! Julia's hubby's Bob Marley in a fedora hat imitation. Come on, you're better than that Chemistry-teacher-Frank. Leo. When are they actually going to reveal that he isn't stoned he's just slow as hell?
Season 1 Episode 7
Worship My Butt!The child thing never ceases to perplex me." -- Derek "Because you're a reptile." -- Tom I've got to say last night's episode made me really want Smash to do well and actually become a Broadway musical a la Grease: You're the One That I Want.On the other hand, it also made me really want Smash to get cancelled so Megan Hilty can return to Broadway. Either way it's a win-win because bottom line: this show is getting GOOD. All the ridiculous subplots were perfectly done last night, not too crazy, not too boring, but just right. Let's get to it!
