I missed Alex Wong. Anyone care to tell me where he was?

He was in the section where the director staged the musical number as an audition (for the director). He was one of the dancers in the number.

You can see the clip here (http://www.hulu.com/watch/326841/smash-national-pastime). Alex is wearing black shorts and a green muscle shirt and is on the ground in front of the bench doing push-ups when the sequence begins.

I'm going to give this show a chance. I wasn't blown away by the pilot but I'll keep watching.

I'm having trouble getting into this episode, it's too choppy and going into too many different directions. I'm only enjoying Megan Hilty.

Loved the whole episode. My favourites are Messing and Huston. I just find them really compelling businesswomen (less compelled with their domestic storylines). I find Hilty less compelling McPhee. So, McPhee doesn't get a supporting role (i.e. one of those "You'll be nothing" figures?)?

Hilty's last song lasted FOREVER.

Maybe McPhee will be her understudy.

Nah. Hilty will workshop the show, the end up pregnant from the one-night stand. No-good-but-talented director will rise to the occassion and stand by her irl, but have no choice but to replace her for the out of town tryouts. They'll call McPhee in...and we'll get to see Hilty froth at the mouth, having been promised, however, that it's her role for the B'way production...but alas,the out of town critics will make McPhee too big of a star....

Love the show, but it's kind of transparent. :P

ugh, after the pilot I defended the Debra Messing family plot, but on this week's ep it completely bugged. Her husband was ok with adopting at 45, but adopting at 47 is completely over the line? And the SON! I was embarrassed for the actor who had to say those lines about how his parents promised him a sibling and that his baby sister was out there....somewhere. That might fly if the son was 10 years old, but it was not remotely credible coming from a much older teenager. Especially not from a 20-something playing a teenager.

Yeah, that whole thing with the son DID NOT WORK at all.

And the letter she read was - well SNL over the top IMO.
But I still lurve Brian Darcy James and I still hope for a way to have him sing!

I want to like this show. It seemed like such a neat idea - and with such performers and dancing! But it seems that something about writing for TV has sapped the intelligence away from the writers. There are too many cliches and too much is predictable and too many of the characters are flat.

hasn't it only been 2 weeks? :lol:

yes, but i couldnt make it all they way through either episode. wk 1 - i blamed it on the length which seemed to rival that of rich man poor man. but wk 2, i was paying bills by the halfway mark.

and ita about the son, it looked like a moment from to catch a predator

The scene with Messing's son was weird. And his lines were so repetitive it turned out to be bizarre! He did creep me out. Then I don't know I think Hilty is like projecting Mae West and not Marylin at all!
