SMASH Season 2 First Impressions

Keeping with tradition, SMASH released its first hour of the season online prior to its official air date on February 5th. Well, I watched it and can definitely say that this season is shaping up to be a lot stronger than the first season.

It started with a new number from the now Broadway-bound Bombshell. The song, "Cut, Print...Moving On," is your typical Bombshell number with fun music and great dancing. It's not the best we've seen, but definitely a strong start to the season.

The drama of this first hour definitely started to tie up some loose ends from last season, so I'm not going to judge the drama too hard. Last season needed to be let go, and this hour successfully did that by dealing with Michael Swift (Will Chase) and Frank (Brian d'Arcy James).

The third, and best part of the episode was definitely the new characters. Jennifer Hudson, Jeremy Jordan, and Andy Mientus were amazing. It was fun hearing new, super talented voices, and new writers (Joe Iconis). The highlight, by far, was Jordan's closing song: "Broadway Here I Come."

I am so excited for the rest of the season and can't wait for more. If you missed it, check it out here.
