New TV Review: @NBCSmash

Did anyone else catch NBC's new show "Smash" last night?

Description:  The show revolves around a group of characters who come together to put on a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. But before that can happen, the people who will try to bring it all together must deal with their own personal acts.

My Review:  This show has been billed as a grown up "Glee", but really I'd say it's really a drama where Glee is a comedy.  It reminds me a lot of the movie "Center Stage", but with a Broadway theme.  Katharine McPhee is the perfect ingenue, and my beloved Megan Hilty (I saw her as Glinda in 'Wicked' in LA!) plays the Broadway veteran competing with her for the coveted lead role.  I LOVE MEGAN HILTY!  Almost as much as I love Kristen Chenoweth!  I also liked seeing great actresses Anjelica Huston and Debra Messing return to TV. I really think this show is off to a great start and shows a lot of potential.

I'll definitely be DVRing this, and hoping it continues full speed ahead!
