I have now watched the latest episode and loved it, despite how preposterous it often was. My positive reaction may well have been partly caused by Smash withdrawal. NBC's OKC affiliate preempted last week's show because the weather guys were covering a bunch of storms around the state. Disappointing but still pretty hard to complain about.
I thought the singing and dancing this week were uniformly wonderful. Mark Kudisch was funny and effective in the Zanuck numbers and Angelica Huston's rendition of September Song was lovely. I also liked the music in the church. As usual, Karen was terrific but the dancing-boy who is Tom's current squeeze really knocked it out of the park. The guy can REALLY sing!
The bottom line is, I am still enjoying the show and look forward to it each week.
