Why would they?

Karen's the official understudy, she has shown that she can learn songs quickly and (at least in my eyes) she did great at the preview. Why would they change?

I hope it is Michael's baby. What fun would it be if it is her husband's and there are no consequences to face?

Oh, and that would really send the son into a tailspin!

I hope you're kidding - the only thing worse than all the unnecessary (and, frankly, unrealistic amount of) cheating in this show is the son's acting. Someone needs to fire him.

Like I said in an earlier post, it could be that he's just doing a bang-up job of portraying a very, very awkward teenage boy.

Maybe Ivy will, in a fit of drug-induced rage!

Is it just me, or did they never wrap up the storyline of Karen getting a record deal? I know she missed one session because of rehearsals for the play, but surely she could've re-scheduled?

Also, we never figured out if Ellis prefers guys to girls! Is he supposed to be bi?

Elton

PS Did anyone get the soundtrack? I was pretty bummed that they picked so few songs. If I wanted to go to Target I could get a few more songs, but even that set leaves out great songs, like the one in the finale. I wish they did a two disc set, one disc of covers and one of songs from the musical.

I looked at the set list for both and was left totally uninterested in buying it.

I believe that every musical number can be found in the videos on NBC.com. When I have some time, I'm just going to grab the audio from those and make a soundtrack for myself.

My take was that he "likes" girls but is willing to sleep with guys if it suits his purpose. That alone should have made him at least interesting but the writing couldn't handle any depth to a character and instead he was just a wide eyed power grabber with no people skills.

I've discovered there's a way to easily turn the versions on YouTube into mp3s. Shouldn't be hard for you to find it.

I'm familiar with the methods.

I haven't looked on YouTube to see what videos they have or what the quality is.

I know the nbc.com videos are comprehensive and high-quality. So even though grabbing the audio from there is going to be more time-consuming than doing it off of youtube, I'll probably go that route anyway.

You should really save the video so you can SEE Katherine McPhee sign. She is so damn fine.

The finale totally redeemed this show for me. I liked it at the beginning, but as it started to deepen into this or that soap opera moment, I started losing some interest. But the finale was excellent. And mostly because they went back to what made the show great, the story of the show, as opposed to the story of the people in the show. Sure there was some of of that, but the show came first.

I wonder if there are plans to really make this into a Broadway musical. I think it would be fun to see the whole thing some day.

Casting spoilers for Season 2:
Spoiler:
Ellis and Dev are both gone.

http://tvline.com/2012/05/22/smash-ellis-dev-exit/

I'm indifferent about the latter... but for the former, I say THANK GOD.

Edit: Frank (Julia's husband) and Michael Swift are also gone.

I *love* the choices on the second poll on that page.
