If you like Glee and Nashville you will probably enjoy this show too. It features great actors and great music, but it also gives you a small glimpse into the broadway/theatre/music business (and drama ;) ). I really enjoyed the show and I am so sad that it is concluded after only two seasons.

I really liked he first season, with a really good story line around Marilyn Monroe, the songs are good too, and the actors are good, and really can sing.

We all knew Work It had a short shelf life from the jump, but Smash was going to be something different. Yes, it was risky. But Glee had proven that niche genres can break through on television if their smart and different enough. Glee’s star may have dimmed since its debut, but Smash’s Broadway lights never got any power. The songs were a little too generic, though there were some sleepers produced. The guest spots never really generated any buzz, and most were given boring characters. (Poor Uma Thurman without her Tarantino!) Megan Hilty broke out, but she was never the lead, and the lead Katherine McPhee never popped off the screen. To doubt that she could ever be Marilyn Monroe, when she was supposed to be the protagonist we were rooting for, is never a good sign. And this is coming from someone who loves most musicals and even owns the soundtracks to both Camp Rocks. At least the Hollywood Foreign Press showed them some love.

Singing is good, smash is terrible. It began well but then got completely nuts and it's too bad. Looks like Glee except it's all about drama.

Between the music and the drama, my friends and I describe "Smash" as "Glee" for adults. I would LOVE to see the musical they create within the show.

A good show. Ended in the right time, even though I thought it would last one season. The second one surprised me with its quality.
