The trials and tribulations of three shows struggling to succeed. The lavish "Bombshell" about Marilyn Monroe has many obstacles to overcome if ever to reach Broadway. Low budget "Hit List" is a raw love story in need of a sponsor. "Liaisons" wobbles most dangerously because of its totally inappropriate celebrity star. Will any succeed?

Egos will clash, troubles multiply and tragedy strike before genuine worth is recognized.

The cast of Season 1 continues to please, director Derek (Jack Davenport) still with much to learn from unwise sexual relationships. Christian Borle excels as composer Tom, he here to branch out interestingly. Dominating every scene she is in, Anjelica Huston delights as formidable producer Eileen - she locked in battle with her highly devious ex Jerry, he long overdue for another glass of wine in the face.

Also impressive are newcomers Jeremy Jordan and Andy Mientus as Jimmy and Kyle, "Hit List" their brainchild. Both are young and streetwise: Jimmy talented but unpredictable with a past that may bring him crashing; Kyle the loyal companion, brilliant creator of what they have achieved, but held back by trying to curb Jimmy's excesses.

SMASH 2 is uneven, but offers much that greatly pleases. That does not include the "Liaisons" storyline - it totally silly if truth be told, its useless star allowed to get away with so much. Songs and dance routines abound, some of them highlights.

After sniffy reports from elsewhere, I was surprised and delighted to enjoy SMASH 2 so much. Certain aspects are admittedly shallow but, out of the blue, there comes a great shock. Genuinely moving, it at once propels everything into a higher league.

17 episodes (if one counts the feature-length first and last as two each).

Pros - great songs, talented cast, fun rivalry between the two musicals, more contemporary.

Cons - seems to aim at a younger audience than season one, loss of some of the spectacle.

The second season of Smash sees the continued attempts to bring the Marilyn Monroe musical to the bright lights of Broadway. New cast members and a rival musical that divides the cast gives the show an additional edge that expands well on the previous season.
Great songs continue to litter the show with a nice mix of powerful emotion and foot stomping energy with a definite move toward more contemporary sound, a plus or a minus depending on your point of view and preference. As with the previous season, the performances are first rate. I must admit I did find some of the plot lines a little angsty as the show strayed into Gleeish territory, and sadly some of the maturity is lost along the way, particularly the reduction in quality lines for Jack Davenport. That said it is still a great show that is eminently watchable and I look forward to a third season.

First an admission; I'm not a Glee fan. Generally, dramas which involve people bursting into song at the drop of a hat fill me with dread. However, Smash is different. It's an adult drama with music, not a happy-clappy soap with songs. Series one had it's flaws, but the idea it was based around and the superb cast, plus an almost palpable feeling that everyone was doing their best to create a quality series drove it on.

There was everything needed to make it a success, and when the final episode aired it looked like, if the lessons were learned, it could make it. Unfortunately, that didn't happen, and series two wasn't as good as the first had been. Some of the characters seemed to act, well, out of character. The division of the two casts, as it were, was too contrived and predictable. Maybe the producers knew it would be cancelled, I don't know.

In any case, while it was still often enjoyable, it fell flat in places too, with some of the new characters being below par and very stereotypical. The writing wasn't as tight either. On the plus side, the original cast continued a sterling job, with both leading ladies showing that they are as talented as they are beautiful.

Notable mention has to be given to Jack Davenport, without whom this whole series would have been so much the less. It's always good to have a great actor playing a part that tests them, and the audience. Like many other major roles in US series at the moment, they call in a British actor, and it works.

I wish a third series had been commissioned but having seen how the writers struggled with a plot in this second I have no idea where the series could have gone from here. Maybe a few more episodes in this series would have resolved everything in a less rushed manner. All told though, for anyone thinking of buying Smash, I'd recommend it. For the series as a whole, I'd give four stars, for this season alone, if I could, I'd give three and a half stars rather than four.

Im not really a fan of big budget musicals, Chicago and Moulin Rogue did nothing for me, but Smash had me hooked! People have said on here that Katherine Mcphee has a great career ahead. She was the American Idol winner a few years ago and has released a few albums!!!! Megan Hilty also as an album out and Hitlist is being turned in to musical which is being performed in December!!! Enjoy a great show on dvd and ignore the ill informed haters. Steve Speilberg couldn't save it and I bet he wasn't happy with the network one bit!
