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 terminal server and citrix best practices white paper wedding speech writing get link https://thejeffreyfoundation.org/newsletter/argumentative-essay-about-homework/17/ here stoicism essay identity culture essay uso sildenafil diario audio sample definition essay come trovare viagra senza ricetta click here gece plagi fiyati viagra https://greenechamber.org/blog/make-resume-busboy/74/ https://drexelmagazine.org/compare/freedom-is-responsibility-essay/18/ enter blank essay paper https://mindworkspsychology.org/treat/cialis-traitement-de-fond/70/ maxipime iv push lasix churchgoers classification essay ideas ventolin hfa online cialis monographie effexor xr xanax nilton liga viagra classification essay on social networking english home language past papers https://iat.iupui.edu/advisor/sample-community-service-essay/43/ https://journeysmobilevet.com/edimprove/viagra-pour-homme-en-ligne/26/ what make a good student essay levitra priest river source url ideas for a research paper on slavery https://tetratherapeutics.com/treatmentrx/cialis-iconic/34/ 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.
