I basically decided to watch Smash for one very simple reason: Katharine Mcphee. I’ve loved this girl and have had the biggest crush on her since she almost won American Idol a few years ago. She was just such a charismatic and beautiful girl that I knew she’d make it big at some point. And thankfully, this show looks like the perfect star-making vehicle for her!
As for the pilot itself, I surprisingly really enjoyed it. Broadway and theater don’t really interest me but I thought the show was pleasantly confident in its voice and cast. Everything carried along smoothly and I was suitably hooked by all the subplots. I’m definitely intrigued to see where we go next. Moreover, the direction was superb. Well done indeed.
