Okay, let’s start out with the good things. I am very glad that network television is giving musical theatre a 3-hour prime time window. I am hoping that this will expose new people to its amazingness. I thought that Laura Benanti, Christian Borle and Audra McDonald were brilliant. They are all so talented and I am so glad they were cast. I think that the children were also very talented.
I like Carrie Underwood and I think she is more talented than most. Her music is fun and her voice is great. I do not think that it is a perfect fit with The Sound of Music although she did well. She clearly worked very hard and was honest in her performance. Unfortunately, she had to attempt to stand in the shoes of the phenomenal Julie Andrews and I think that there are very few people who could do so. I am not sure that this was entirely fair to Carrie Underwood.
People have been very upset with others who did not know that The Sound of Music was a musical before it was a movie. I don’t understand why they are mad. The movie is much more widely known than the stage performance, because so many more people had access to it. Also when my community theatre put on a production of The Sound of Music, they based it on the film. That film may be one of the very best examples of American musicals. I would also like to say that despite Hammerstein’s death, Rodgers did work with the film production to revamp the musical to make it clearer, so the people saying that the film is in incorrect adaptation are confused.
I think that the spirit of the attempt was good one and I hope that they do more. Maybe even shows that are lesser known, but still fabulous. I don’t think people realize what musical theatre does for some kids (even people like me with minimal talent). It gave me and a lot of other people that I know, a place to belong in high school. Maybe next time, they could cast more Broadway talent.
I’d never, ever hurt a lady but I’d be happy to punch a feminist.
It’d bring me great joy.

I did it! I won! And now all the Doctors are dancing to some rather annoying music. It took me almost 40 minutes and I died alot. Yep that was a good use of time.
"What do you mean you wanna see the movie again? You just saw it … Why would you wanna watch a movie you’ve already seen,again???”…
"But haven’t you already read that??? WHy would you want to read the same bOOK TWICE?!?"
Just because you’ve eaten chocolate once, it doesn’t mean you’ll never want to eat it again.
The pilot of this show was fabulous. There was nothing that I didn’t love about it. It made me squee, because Kennex made friends with Dorian. They are fucking great! I love that the screwed up human got the “screwed up” bot. The characters were so well done and the plot was so engaging. I hope they can keep doing. Plus all the pretty people are in this show. I mean any excuse to watch Karl Urban, but also Minka Kelly and Michael Ealy. They may have hit one out of a park here.
