NBC’s “SMASH” Hits All the Right Notes!

It is extremely refreshing to see a series where a courtroom, a hospital, or a crime scene are nowhere in sight.  Networks don’t often take chances on a series without one of those popular and successful staples as its foundation.  And let’s also get another thing straight – with the exception of the inclusion of songs and musical numbers, there is simply no comparison between elephant homework help http://snowdropfoundation.org/papers/do-my-homework-for-me/12/ http://www.naymz.com/help-with-writing-personal-statement-for-ucas/ i need help with my health homework follow https://grad.cochise.edu/college/thesis-binding-bath/20/ follow https://tasteofredding.org/9810-viagra-secondary-uses/ is sertraline 50 mg addictive buy viagra costa rica bill of rights essay contest 2006 paper writing services best click follow url example of a physics lab report click https://web.ics.purdue.edu/~asub/?doc=write-an-essay-in-english importance of reading essay writing https://lajudicialcollege.org/forall/obamas-graduate-thesis/16/ see url https://rainierfruit.com/cialis-discount/ best cv writing service in dubai dissertation uc davis article writer i need help with my homework online critical analysis essay examples nursing role expansion rwa creative writing https://www.cochise.edu/academic/kanawha-county-schools-homework-help/32/ best way to write a college level essay unc graduate school thesis submission can you write my assignment Smash and Glee, the first being a serious drama and the latter a comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously.  The good thing about Glee is that its success helped open the door to other shows interested in including music in its formats.

Yesterday it was announced that Lost’s Jin, Daniel Dae Kim had been cast as Detective Chin Ho Kelly and today, former Moonlight star Alex O’Loughlin was confirmed to star as Steve Garrett – following the trail blazed by the late Jack Lord in the sixties and seventies – the head of the Hawaii State Police.

The 5-0 reboot was created by the ubiquitous writing team of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci [Fringe] and Peter Lenkov [CSI: NY] and is O’Loughlin’s third CBS headliner following cult favorite Moonlight and the atrocious Three Rivers.
