Sums up how I felt.
That's funny...my wife and I thought the only really good stuff in the episodes was Jimmy's stuff. Then again, we LOVE Rent.
No boob job -- just good architecture.
Sure looked like it to us. In some of the scenes, her face was puffier than before. But then the next scene she would look normal. Not sure what was going on there.
Either way, the two episodes have started to border on the land of ridiculousness. Some of the situations they are on just are beyond belief. I want the show back that showed the process behind how the musical is made.
It might just be correlative rather than causative.
Why should he?
Everyone's ok with his harassment.
I did almost vomit when Karen and Derek "had their moment" but I managed to control myself.
Honestly, these two episodes basically bored me because I've stopped caring about almost all of the characters.
Who are we supposed to root for? At least season one had an underdog. Now we have Karen who's apparently already annointed as a star... a sexual harrassing director, a bitchy prima-donna who's trying to find humility, and an obnoxious bartender, song writer who is a snob, a depressed cheating wife. Oh, and a producer who can't acknowledge her mistakes and acts entitled (for some reason I can't understand).
I guess there's the gay songwriter... I like him. But he seems to have no ambition except to take the easy path in all situations.
I'm rooting for the cute roommate who sleeps around.
I got a kick out of the "Would I Lie To You" number. A throwback to the Robert Palmer mannequin band.
I'm not really thrilled with it this time around. I agree with others, I was underwhelmed. We'll see, but I may be cancelling.
Wasn't too bad, wasn't too good. It was nice that they were able to wash away so many of the 1st season problems basically in a few lines.
But are they just creating new ones? I agree that Karen was much less likable during these sessions. And why would a no-name singer like Karen really be "discovering" this new writing talent? That is so implausible.
What was NBC thinking when premiering a 2-hour season premiere on 2/5 and then being off for several weeks until 2/19? It was off the air for so long...wait the extra weeks and premiere it where it can have a consistent timeslot.
I noticed the freckles too, and I don't remember ever seeing them last year. She always seemed to have a pure white Marilyn complexion and a Marilyn figure. She may have gained a few pounds tho--not out of character if she's depressed and all.
I know nothing about how broadway works, but what was the deal with the girl part of the writers duo getting bad reviews and him getting good ones. I thought they were a team? Then I thought maybe he did the music and she did the lyrics, but I thought he said," they liked your lyrics, tho" And if the show was such a success, how could they hate her part so much?
I wonder if the "evil assistant" was on the receiving end of that text message sent by Jerry.
I still think they should get both Ivy and Karen to play Marilyn/Norma Jean. I know it's not an original idea but it's not like they are doing anything ground breaking anyway.
I was thinking she wrote the dialog and he wrote the music. Then I googled "musical the book" and came up with this page because I think they were saying she wrote "the book":
So it seems like she basically writes the plot.
Thanks--that makes sense. In Bombshell, I would think the plot would be the most difficult, since everyone knows all about the story. And I guess if the songs are great it could be a hit with a sketchy "book."
I'm sorry everyone, whenever I like a season 1 show and then they retool it for season 2; it then gets cancelled. This Karen was so different than Karen 1.0, Disappointed in the direction but will watch ep 3
