Audience Reviews for Smash: Season 2

    I think I only liked this season better because I knew it was the last.
  • Jan 04, 2016
    Deeply flawed, but highly entertaining.

    The second season was Blah, but I still highly suggest season one to all musical fans. This beautiful musical probably has some of the best music I have ever heard. Every lyric and instrument is perfect, and I absolutely love some of the dances and scenes on stage. The good thing is, you don't have to be a fan of musicals to like this show. There isn't TOO much music, maybe about 3-4 songs an episode (1 song every 10 minutes unlike a film musical's 2 every 10 minutes). I was also pleasantly surprised with the acting. All TV shows are usually quite dramatic and overacted unlike some movies. However almost all of the actors on this show did a GREAT job, even the new comers. Of course, the cast was wonderful- you had an Oscar winner, a Tony winner, and many real live Broadway actresses. I loved 99% of the characters.

    Great show, great actors, great writing! Just... great! ;-) This show made me laugh and cry with every episode and I'm not easy to please when it comes to TV series'. There were a few predictable moments, but the flare and characters kept it exciting! Please, I want some more!

    An amazing talented cast comes together to give the audience a taste of music, betrayal, romance, and the fight for fame. Whether it's Broadway star Megan Hilty or Academy Award Winner Anjelica Huston, someone is always surprising you with a character development or a magical song! A highly underrated musical drama with plenty of plot twists and passion.

    Though it had so much going for it, Smash's second season fell drastically short and led to its cancellation. Though the leads (Megan Hilty and Katherine McPhee) were phenomenal through the course of the show, it just wasn't enough...
