No disrespect to the fans of McPhee and Hudson, but they are just not my favorites. Wouldn't you know they would both end up on this show? I guess it makes sense, considering Hudson's background. Now I'm just waiting for Jennifer Lopez to show up. (All my least favorites on a show that I really like!) lol
I actually enjoyed last night's show. Was that Sheryl Lee Ralph as Jennifer Hudson's mother? Interestingly enough, I saw her in Dreamgirls on Broadway years ago.
Whew! All that Kat bashing may end up a serial killer. ( Sorry ... sick but couldn't resist that :) )
I absolutely disagree with all who think Megan Hilty is more suited to the Marilyn role.
I think McPhee looks so much more like MM! Hilty looks too old when she's playing MM !
Spielberg doesnt make mistakes.
it's the american idol stigma (if there is any)
I'm so disappointed :( I really loved this show last season and looked forward to watching it, but this season, not so much. I'm still watching and I keep hoping it gets better, but I fear it won't. I don't like the JHud story and think it's filler that's wasn't needed.
Yeah, why can't they explain who some of who the main characters are and how they got where they are today? I think that's the writers fault.
I don't blame McPhee. She had an opportunity and she took it. I guess she did the best she could. It's not her fault they went the wrong direction. Still, I think the show would have had a different result if they had written it differently. They needed a real star, who's firey in her role and that's just not her, IMO.
Any updates on the status?
I wasn't sure about this episode until close to the end. Wham! Smash just came alive again! And did you guys see whose name was on the check that Jerry was paying off? It was ELLIS!!!!! The weasel rat-fink backstabber from last season. He finally brought Eileen down --- and now we have a whole new direction for Bombshell. A whole lot more pizzazz in the Bombshell storyline (thanks to Julia and her new writing partner), and a Broadway producer who is a totally unscrupulous megalomaniac. It's like the real story starts now! This should be interesting!
