(This was previously discussed as a part of the pre-air VOD, but that thread wasn't marked as a spoiler thread... and some people chose to watch it OTA instead of on VOD.) My thoughts from that thread: Watched it again OTA. A couple of additional things I noticed: I hadn't noticed the first time that "Karen" changed the lyrics for her audition piece, "Beautiful," to make it fit better to Marilyn Monroe. Nice touch. I don't quite get the infatuation the one writer has with Ivy Lynn. If it wasn't made pretty clear in the show that he's gay, I'd say he had a thing for her. I still think Megan Hilty overacted a bit, but I did like her in the scene in the kitchen where she's trying to get some acknowledgement from her mother, who basically blows her off. I wouldn't blame Ivy for guzzling the rest of the bottle of wine she was drinking after that conversation. Still hate the baseball number, but that's because I'm more of a fan of the modern, more pop music-oriented shows than the traditional Broadway musicals, and that seems like a bit of a throwback number.
