I am not watching Smash but it must have been good by the ratings because it out did Hawaii Five-0. Maybe it was because of The Voice lead-in. Not sure. But I will say that the show seems to me, the last couple of outings, to be poorly written and just put together. Last night was no different for me. It just doesn’t seem to not have a good cohesiveness. I’m glad that we got a back story on Danny and him whining just was out of character. Yes I know that Grace was help captive and maybe all parents would behave like that but he’s a tough no nonsense type of guy and it didn’t sit well with me. I was so hoping that Lori was faking her ankle injury and would make Steve go get something from the bottom of the stairs and then continue on up and win. But that sure didn’t happen. I sure do wish I could type as fast as she can on a keyboard like that. I also wonder if they are going to let Danny get away from shooting Stan. I mean I’m glad he just shot him in the shoulder but he just out and out shot him. I also want to know what happened to his ex-partner because if he goes to jail once is he going back again and Danny is going to have to worry about him coming out again? I just keep coming back to the fact that the story’s are put together by pieces and just don’t flow well.
