Sound of Music Live - NBC Dec. 5th - Gonna watch?

I'm not usually a Broadway musical type person, but I have seen the movie many times and generally have enjoyed it. It's my wife's favorite movie, so we will be watching, and I plan on watching this live, which intrigues me. Supposedly the first time in 50 years they are doing this.

I will watch. I've been trying to schedule the recording for about four days now. For some reason, the guide data on both my TiVos only goes up to the 5:00 hour on that day.

The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies. I'm interested to see how a live production goes.

This feels like something I want to watch live. It would seem to defeat the purpose of watching a "live" broadcast from a recording (sounds kinda weird, but that's my thought process with this).

I totally get that, but on the reality side (for us), we have busy schedules with three kids, so we rarely get more than an hour or so to sit down and watch TV, and that is after they go to bed. We never have the freedom to sit down and watch anything uninterrupted during prime time.

And I get that too. This one, I'm just not sure I'd feel it if I didn't watch it live. I'll probably record it anyway, just in case life comes a callin'.

glad to see it being revived in a different format.

mom would play alternate sides of the album (remember those!) every night for me to fall asleep. those memories will probably make it hard for me to be happy with another production, but i'll still watch.

I'll definitely be watching. Love the movie and Carrie Underwood is super hot (and very talented).

FYI, there's a special this Wednesday night (Nov 27) at 8/7 on NBC about the making of this special. I have that set to record as well.

You thought process makes zero sense, actually. It is not live in the sense of a sporting event where you don't know the outcome. It is live as in a live performance. Just like a concert film or a live music album. The performance is not affected by if YOU watch it live nor is it an in-the-moment activity like a football game. However, the live aspect brings a different performance that will not change if you watch it recorded or not.

I know it makes no sense. It's kinda like recording the Macy's Parade or 4th of July Fireworks. To me, it just feels weird watching something like that recorded.

Plus, if there's buzz about any flubs in the media, I don't want to be spoiled.

Pad live event?

TiVo asked me if I wanted to pad this recording because it will be performed "live" and may run long. But you say the outcome is pre-determined, so should I not worry about padding it like a sports event?

What?

It could run long but It is scripted. And I doubt it will run long. This isn't American Idol or the Oscars. Oops. Neither of them is pre-determined.

Nothing we watch "live" nowadays is truly live like TV was back in the day. By the time all the digital processing and sat delays are taken, what you see is several seconds behind real time, unlike the times past when the signals were carried over microwave by the telephone companies (with no delay) pre satellite.

I know, this is nit picking, but technically correct. Might as well be recorded.

Is this just some Broadway production that they are going to televise?

There was always some delay. It still took time for sound and light to travel from the source to the cameras and mics up to the satellite, then back down, then to your TV

So, really, no one has ever seeing anything totally live on TV.

Based on the "making of" special tonight, I am really excited to see this next week. The kids seem perfect to me and I loved the whole special.

No. This is a totally new production for the one-time Live special next week. Their goal is to make it look like a movie of a live show. Tons of work went into/is going into making this Live version.

After watching the "Making Of" special tonight, I'm intrigued. Looks like they mostly nailed the casting and this has always been one of my favorite movies.

Just watched the Making Of special. We're totally excited for the real thing. And I didn't realize my two older girls haven't seen the movie and don't know what it's about.

So now I'm debating whether their first experience should be with the original, or with this new version. Carrie Underwood is really good, but nobody can hold a candle to Julie Andrews.

Hmmm, decisions.

Was "Sound of Music" originally a movie? Or was it a play/musical?

The musical debuted on Broadway in 1959. The movie was released in 1965.

Definitely watching. The "live" aspect is very interesting. One performance and off to the next project. I used the Sound of Music recording (forgotten whether cartridge or album), wrapped in a note containing her tickets for Innsbruck and a 10 day ski trip I took her on as a Christmas gift.

Yes. In the OP's link it mentions that they will have a song that was in the original play but dropped for the movie.

I'm talking about back when television was distributed by the telephone companies nationwide via microwave. There was no satellite distribution of television of regular program feeds, so there was no satellite delay. What you saw was at the speed of light, for all practical purposes real time, not the several second delayed video caused by today's digital processing delay and satellite transmission delay.
