    Thanks, Critical. I did not have a clue. As I said, I rarely read the gossip sites.

    Re: Smash (NBC- Mondays 10/9 C)

    I watched all but the last two episodes this weekend! What a marathon. I love the show. I think it's interesting how people see the characters in such different ways. I was instantly impressed with Ivy. She's a huge talent as Ivy and also in real life. I have no idea who she is. I haven't checked her out, but OMG. She has star quality IMO. It's something that's difficult to define.

    I'm loving the acting by Debra Messing, but my, her character is so frustrating. She doesn't seem even close to really wanting a baby. Please. LOL

    I was rather surprised that Katherine McPhee is portrayed the way she is. I don't find her even slightly right for a Monroe character. In fact, whenever she tries to be sexy, I just think it' funny. It's just not her. She's not a sexy, bombshell, IMO. Her solo performances are ones I can do without. It's just so not up to par when compared to the Ivy character. Katherine was very fortunate to get this role on Smash. Does anyone know how old she is?

    I did look at the characters who will not be returning to the show. (I don't care about spoilers. It doesn't bother me at all to know what happens in advance.) I must say I'm confused as to how this going to work out. Hmmmmm.......

    I can't wait until the next season. This is one my top 5 favorite shows!

    She's 28.
    Two of the non-returning characters can easily be written out. The third

    will be appearing intermittently I believe.

    I did some research. I really like Megan Hilty who plays Ivy. Here's a link on her life and work. Very impressive.

    Megan Hilty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I kept thinking the guy who plays Julia's writing partner was formerly on Weeds (Showtime series). Apparently, he just resembles him. Did anyone else see that?

    I like Ivy and her singing a million times more than Katherine's character.

    Well I like the character Kat plays much more than the one Megan plays. I think their voices are equally good.

    I realize that Megan Hilty has gotten some kudos in her theatrical career, but it looks like everything was a short run.
    Kat's original claim to fame is American Idol ... but she's done a few other things as well.

    I think that Kat is more universally appealing than Megan (appearance wise) and while Megan's figure may more closely resemble MM facially I think her look is harder/older ... Katherine's face with the blonde wig looks more like MM and has a much softer and younger look.

    JMO ...

    Hmmmm.....I couldn't disagree more about Katherine. IMO she is the opposite of Mariland. Everything from her body type to her personality is anti-MM to me. If I actually went to see a musical and Katherine were playing MM, I think I would be very shocked and disappointed, She's long, lanky, without much of a figure and doesn't give off the Bombshell vibe in my book. Nothing against Katherine. I think she's good at certain styles, but IMO she really looks out of place in that musical. Doing the preview without Ivy was a HUGE mistake in my mind. I guess we'll see what happens next season. I really hope they give Ivy some credit though. All the praise to Katherine just confuses me.


    Does anyone know if each season will be about this same musical or will they move on to new ones?

    I agree Debb. I have a hard time seeing Katherine as MM even with the makeup and wig on. She does not give off that sexy bombshell appeal that is MM. She gives off a cute appeal but that is not MM.

    Pretty sure, at least for the foreseeable future, they will stick with this musical. They haven't even made it to Broadway yet ...they'll need to show them finding a venue, doing previews for the critics, starting the run etc.

    I am fairly certain the basis will be this musical, but it certainly could spin to something else.

    Back to Kat v. Megan as MM ... when I look at Kat's face I think she resembles Marilyn ... pouty, young and just soft facial features like the young MM.
    Megan has sharper facial features. Marilyn Monroe herself also came off as the innocent, naive blonde.

    I agree with you about the body types. Incidentally ... Kat would probably be thrilled to be seen as lanky. She was a tad heavier on AI.
