Sometimes bad skating happens to good people...
NBC's The Sound of Music
Did anyone watch this on Thursday night? Thoughts? I thought it was beyond awful, it wasn't even in the 'so bad you can't look away' vein. I ended up doing some housework and tried to listen to it in the background at times when I had to look away.
It was a hit, viewer wise. But the reviews were mostly horrible. Poor Carrie Underwood was terrible. One critic called this "The Sharknado of all Broadway musicals". LOL.

Some things should just be left alone. Do not remake The Wizard of Oz recasting Judy Garland. Do not do a live version of Gone With The Wind without Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh.

Sorry to hear that it wasn't better; I do like Carrie Underwood. I wanted to watch and missed it Thursday, maybe that was a good thing.
I watched with the mindset that I was watching a Broadway production, instead of the iconic movie. So, I didn't think it was horrendous, but perhaps just ok.
Overall, I thought the singing voices were fine.
Unfortunately, Carrie Underwood is not a strong enough actress to carry the lead IMHO. The other problem was that there was little chemistry between her and 'the Captain'.
I read that one of the descendants of Maria Von Trapp felt that Anne Hathaway would've been a better choice as a proven actress and singer. He had reservations about Carrie's acting skills - interview was taken before the production was aired.....
