Storyline

Although Bombshell is officially going back into unofficial rehearsals, Karen and Derek are still looking for other projects "just in case". Karen is still interested in helping Jimmy and Kyle get their musical at least to a stage where someone may consider staging it, with Derek being her go to person. While Kyle is optimistically hopeful that Karen can produce what she says in terms of a meeting with Derek, Jimmy is more skeptical. But Jimmy takes a risk to get some materials in preparation for that planned meeting with Derek. Derek on the other hand, turns to Veronica Moore for an unofficial audition to direct her new show, The Wiz, using a restaged number from Bombshell as that audition piece. But the fact that Jack and Julia have to change the show significantly based on a directive by Eileen may throw a wrench into Derek's plans. What's worse, especially for Julia, is that Eileen has hired Peter Gilman, a dramaturg, to give Julia advice, this move which Julia does not take lying... Written by Huggo

Confuser Alert - Very Confused Director Seen
1 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Smash was one my favorite series over the last year. It did have the power to bind me in front of my TV when it was aired. It was even surprising me, since I do not like musicals that much. But the series was very good and far beyond other musical series like Glee.

It seems that the director as well as the creative team had a near death experience in the season break; otherwise I really cannot explain such disaster. Such a great show is so going in the wrong direction. It became the horrid new High School Musical; lacking any depth in the storyline, characters, dialogs or even costumes. Director is ruining the existing characters and make them do things which doesn't fit at all e.g. Elieen Rand is using too much of her hands, shouting at people. Or throwing the American Idol gang in the series without any real background or shallow personalities really get me fed up. The dialogs are really shallow, hence torturous.

At the end of the day, this is a very good example proving that a great show can also fail so greatly.

Rest In Peace Smash Season 1... We will miss you...
