I loved this show to death. Broadway is such an incredible thing for me. It's so alive and it was so thrilling to have a show that celebrated that. Not only through original musicals, but by showcasing Broadway talents like Megan Hilty, Christian Borle, Jeremy Jordan and even having work by Joe Iconis. All the cameos from Broadway actors was just a great treat.

This show had flaws. There were ridiculous characters and just stupid, awfully written story lines. People were fired, including the show's creator, Theresa Rebeck. There was a lot of fire tossed around between the creative team, which eventually led to its downfall. NBC also played their hand stupidly with this show by not marketing it correctly and constantly just leaving it behind. It's a shame, really. There was a lot of buzz for this show and what it was going to be. I can only imagine what this show could've been if it weren't for such a rocky two seasons behind the production and NBC.

Regardless, we still got two seasons of incredible music and beautiful performances and characters. We even got lesser known, but certainly not less talented Broadway actors like Wesley Taylor, Andy Mientus and Krysta Rodriguez. They were noticed, and honestly that's all I wanted from this show. I wanted for people who weren't familiar with Broadway to realize why so many people love it. I wanted people to realize that there are so many talented people behind the theater just as there are performing. Broadway is an incredible gift to another who loves art and life.

So thank you, Smash. Thank you for letting the world get just a bit of Broadway's grace through the television.

I love SMASH, I love the characters and I love the story line. I hate that it has been cancelled I can only hope that the two hour finale next week is amazing and closes all the gaps. I don't want to be left hanging. Hopefully since they knew ahead of time that they were being cancelled the writers have had more time to make it spectacular. Can't wait to see what Megan Hilty and Katherine McPhee do after SMASH. I am really going to miss Debra Messing in a sitcom also things haven't been the same since Will and Grace left television. This show would have done much better on a different network I am sure. If Glee can stay on as long as it has then what is the problem with SMASH? Well it seems like a network issue to me and not enough marketing I didn't even hear about it during the first season, I was told about it from and employee at the start of Season 2.

Despite the bad reviews this show's been getting I am a fan and think that despite the bad reviews and its cancellation on NBC, this show deserves a full run. I'd give Season 1 three stars because of the bumpy start, but Season 2 really came on strong ... just too late to glean the kinds of ratings on NBC that would make it a sure renew. (NBC's killed several good shows so why should we trust their judgment?)

Sure there are a few characters who border on caricature, but this is entertainment and escapism, not reality. I love Megan Hilty and Christian Borle in this, and even though Katherine McPhee hasn't really been able to show her real chops, she is playing as naive a character as she should, given the fantasy kid-from-nowhere-makes-Broadway storyline. I have a recommendation - given Amazon's recent show production efforts - why not pick this one up instead of the poorly-received "musical comedy/satire" Browsers?

This is really one of the best shows on television today. The music and choreography is absolutely amazing. The storyline and characters keep you on the edge of your seat. My only complaint is the longing it leaves you with between episodes.

I really loved this show, thought it had excellence and am sorry its canceled. Back to boring Reality shows, I guess.

When a show has top-shelf casting, along with expensive musical numbers, and an iTunes tie-in with Columbia Records, it has to make money. "Smash" survives in a very meta world in its series finale. Bernadette Peters' character mentions something about how it's the worst thing for an actor/actress/show to lose momentum. That's exactly what happened to "Smash". After a rocky first year, "Smash" ended with a bang. And then it went off the air for nine months. People forgot about it. When it finally returned in February of 2013, only the hardcore fans returned, and this isn't nearly enough people to keep the show going. That small number of fans who wanted to see where this thing went in its sophomore (and as it would turn out, final) year.

Theatre director Theresa Rebeck had complete creative control of "Smash" in its first year. And while a lot of what she did worked, more of it did not work. She was fired, and offered to come back to the show as an executive producer, but decided not to return to it in any capacity, because of how "terrible" NBC allegedly treated her. She went on to make snide and childish comments about the second season, calling it a "complete disaster."

Theresa Rebeck is a delusional, narcissistic shrew.

I think the second season of Smash was brilliant. It was near perfect. When the entire cast of the show's second season lined up in a row in the beginning of the show's final hour, and sang Queen's "Under Pressure", a monumentally important song, I felt chills, and I even got a little misty-eyed, because it finally dawned on me that this is the last time we'll see these characters. It felt like the moment in "Rent", where they all sing "Seasons of Love" on a bare stage. It's a powerful and lovely moment.
