So … David and I made it to Detroit without any delays yesterday and I have to say, as always, it’s great to be home. I was actually looking forward to the flight because NBC sent me the pilot episode of their new TV series Smash to watch before the series debuts on TV (Monday February 6) and my plan was to watch the ep during my flight. I did watch the ep and I really, really loved it … a lot! NBC has also made the pilot episode available to watch online … which you can do by clicking below.
I’m a big Broadway fan so any show that is Broadway based is going to get my attention … but that doesn’t mean that the show is going to be good. I had high hopes that Smash would be a fantastic show and thankfully, the pilot episode far exceeded my expectations. In just the first hour, there is so much character development … you can really see how the series can unfold. I am so happy with the casting … every single character is interesting to me. I really think that many people will respond to this show … it’s like Glee for grown-ups. I haven’t been excited for a new show like this in a long time … especially not an NBC show. I really hope Smash does well because this is a story that I MUST see all the way thru to the end. Check out the pilot and let me know what you think. I literally laughed and ALMOST cried a bit when I watched the ep … I’m dying to hear what other people think.
Today is my dad’s birthday and I’ve already called him to say Happy Birthday. I’m certain that he thinks that is all he’s gonna get from me … until I show up on the doorstep to take him and my mother out to dinner tonight. Happy Wednesday, Happy Hump Day!!
