Selfishly ignoring my rabies-flecked post of a few days ago, the American public has gone and given Smash solid ratings for its pilot show, and believe it or not, I don’t begrudge it that. Despite what I said here, the “Smash” pilot wasn’t absolutely terrible, it was just mediocre. So why did I hate it? Because it seemed so bloody pleased with itself for being mediocre (though I am aware that in the humility sweepstakes, I live in what looks suspiciously like a glass house).
And, hey, if people enjoy the show, that’s great. If it continues to pull good ratings, fantastic. Granted, it’s going to be a very long few months for me, but with any luck by then the American public will have grown a sense of good taste.
Yeah…let me know when that happens. If you need me, I’ll be on the floor in a fetal position.
