Yeah...I couldn't get into it through three episodes. Seemed a little dull.

Ive seen 5 so far, and I like it. I also don't think bringing GoT into the picture is a little unfair.

Guess some folks wanted Spartacus II

The film was so silly, it gave the word "camp" a bad name and the singing voices of its mostly young cast ranged from mediocre to awful. Nevertheless, some of the songs, written by the film's directer and writer, Jerome Sable, were very clever and often funny enough to make me laugh out loud. As you said, it's not for all tastes but for musical theater fans, at least those of us who are hard core enough to rise above its many weaknesses, Stage Fright is well worth spending the time it takes to sit through its 89 minute runtime.
It's on my list but haven't watched it yet. "Supernatural" recently did a musical spoof of the show and it was wonderful. The songs and performance caught the style of the characters especially Castiel. A couple years back the local theater put on a performance of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Musical" which I meant to go see but didn't get to it. Had to be a hoot.

I watched Supernatural for a time in its first couple of seasons but wandered off after a while. Do you recall the name of the musical episode? I would love to see it if I could find it, and not have to pay for it, of course.

The musical Buffy episode was entitled Once More With Feeling and is one of my all time favorites from that great old series. Another of my favorites was the one in which nobody could talk, Hush.

It was called Fan Fiction. You can watch for free on the CW website.

Worst episode ever. I FF through all the singing crap and watched the entire episode in 10 minutes. When rewatching Buffy on Netflix I stopped on season 6 after that horrible episode. I have not watched it since.

Supernatural did it right with only the girls singing on the stage performance. Better than Sam and Dean dubbed singing at random crap which is what I though the episode was going to be like.
