If you love the world of musical theater, you may enjoy this smashing romp aptly titled SMASH. With a stellar cast including Deborah Messing, Katherine McPhee and Anjelica Huston with Spielberg producing it, there's talent invested in it.

The talent is trying to produce a Broadway Musical based on the iconic Marilyn Monroe. However, there are the usual challenges: inconvenient romances, slimy director, cast rivalry, insufficient financial backing, script rewriting etc. It is great fun to observe the creative process and the chaos surrounding it. Will they produce a smash hit? You want to keep watching to see if it will come together.

If you're here, you probably know that Smash is one of the best shows to appear on television in the last 20 years. Thank you, Theresa Rebeck, for creating it!

Great music, great characters (Derek is my favorite), everybody who loves New York and especially Broadway will have a BLAST watching every single episode. What could you expect, it also has Steven Spielberg as one of its executive producers!

I'm sure that thousands and thousands of americans and foreigners who love NYC will feel the same way. Am I right?

My god... and the original music of this show !?

I don't have words to describe how incredible and perfect they are, really, REALLY creative, songs AND lyrics, you have to watch Smash and listen to them yourself, if you still didn't do that!
(Don't waste any time, btw, you're gonna fall in love with the original music!)

The original songs were written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, these guys deserve no less than a standing ovation! (They are also executive producers). Where do I sign up to work with them?

My favorite ones are: "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" (episode 3), "On Lexington & 52nd Street" (episode 7), "A Thousand and One Nights" (an AWESOME indian song on episode 12) and "Second Hand White Baby Grand" (also episode 12). Some of them you can have here The Music Of Smash [+digital booklet]

I, myself, a brazilian born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, have Times Square/Broadway as my favorite place in the city, so you can imagine what it was for me the release of this show.

But seriously, on this day and age, no announcement of a Blu-ray release with perfect image/sound and tons of extras? Come on!

Best show I have seen in years. I did not expect to like it and by about 15 minutes into the first episode I was hooked. The songs are incredible, the storyline very engaging and a tremendous cast.

I have watched this amazing series 2 or 3 times through and I am amazed at the amount of superb work and artistry that is put into a once a week tv show. It has to be a daunting task and I have been a fan of many of the stars for many years. I am truly amazed at Katharine's growth from the first days of American Idol until now (and yes I voted for her week after week). Megan, Debra, Angelica and everyone in the cast are superb. This video gets my highest rating as does the show! Long live Smash!!!

I am sure many people are going to be comparing this show to Glee before they have even seen the premiere episode and though, yes, the show does have to do with singing, it really is not like Glee at all. Smash has an incredible cast of actors, including Anjelica Houston and Debra Messing and has to do with Debra's character wanting to create a musical based on the legendary Marilyn Monroe and this show is considerably more mature and 'darker' then Glee. The characters only sing during performances or asides that start in their house, but end up on stage as they a perform a song. I like this show and was glad to find it on Hulu and on here, Amazon, for a free download.

Smash is a fun show, with powerful voices that will no doubt have as much drama/edge as it will humor/camp. If you like Glee, you will def like this show. If you like musicals, you will def like this show. If you just like good shows, you will def like this show!

Katherine McPhee is amazing and will quite possibly recieve an Emmy or Golden Globe nomination for her performance, as will newcomer and her onscreen rival, Megan Hilty as the two compete to be Marilyn!

This is a fun, dramatic and emotional show that I will continue to follow and if you want a good time, you should too!!
