I admit it- I've gotten a little obsessive about "Smash." I just watched the season finale for the second time. I know that there are big problems in the writing. But there aren't many tv shows about people who write musicals, and I (probably over-) identify with Debra Messing's character. It makes complete sense to me that she'd be nominated for a Best Actress Emmy. She's the emotional center of the show.
I cannot imagine what the show will be like next season without Theresa Rebeck. Who neglects her blog even more than I neglect mine; she of course has way more valid excuses than I do.
