    But I want to call 1-900-SMASH-ELLIS-IN-THE-HEAD. ;)

    I don't think the finale/premiere will be as good as those ideas, but will probably be something more outlandish.

    If you watched Outsourced you'd know that almost all Indians can sing and dance. It's pretty much all but one. :D

    I also agree that the Bollywood number was very good.

    That said, why are you surprised at the bad (or lack of) character development.
    That's been the get go from episode 1.

    And I don't buy that you can't develop characters in 2 hours.
    Movies and plays can certainly do it much better than the writers of Smash have.

    To be honest, I started to zone out during the scenes with Julia and her husband. That's how bad it is.

    The Bollywood number was great .. I really miss Outsourced.

    However the episode, on the whole, was pretty bad. What is Rebecca's game and why doesn't Karen see something's up? Why did Rebecca flip-flop again (can't sing, huge diva, to can sing lower and has good ideas, now back again)? Why keep giving the teenage son scenes above his acting abilities? Why did Karen pick *that* moment to day-dream a Bollywood number; you'd think she'd be a bit more engaged? Is Ellis mega stupid? When Karen realizes what happened she'll ask whoever's phone was borrowed and she'll quickly point the finger at Ellis (there wasn't a landline in the place? who borrows phones without some excuse like my battery died?)

    I miss Outsourced, too.:(

    I don't think Karen is smart enough, or maybe ballsy enough to figure it out and point the finger. Ivy would be, but not Karen. And even if Karen does figure it out, so what? Everyone loved Ivy's performance, so it's not going to matter anyway. Karen missed her shot.

    Sending texts from a payphone is prohibitively complex.
