After seeing the pilot, I so much want this series to succeed. I love music, theatre and dance. The two leads are pretty and believable. But it needs more, if it's going to attract the attention of the 18-49's and popular buzz.
I'm glad to have a fresh tv series that's not based upon crime, detectives or hospitals. Refreshing. But for Smash to succeed, it's going to need a villain. The villain could be another actor, a greedy, over-sexed director, or even a world of hard knocks. So far we haven't seen that. If we saw more of Karen's fear of failure, or Ivy's passing up marriage, or Karen's struggle with dancing, or the struggle to pay a grocery bill, it will give a bit more reality to the characters and make us want them to succeed.
But so far, those struggles have not been seen.
Otherwise, this might as well be Opera to most 18-49's. Their attention span is too short and better entertainment can be found online, on demand or on another of the 200 channels.
