My love for Smash.

I don't usually watch tv, but ever since its premier, I have become obsessed with the show Smash. For those of you who don't know about the show, it's about young hopefuls trying to make it big in Broadway in a musical about the life of Marilyn Monroe. There is much more drama amongst the characters, but their main focus is to make the Marilyn musical a success.

Throughout the show, I've gained a particular dislike for the character Ivy.

She initially gained the role of Marilyn in the musical, but she is unpleasant and rude, and in my opinion, tries to hard. She is talented, but her crave for fame is unhealthy. She's constantly having to be taken care of by others, and doesn't seem like she can handle the pressure of starring in a musical, while balancing taking care of herself. 

The main character Karen, however, is much sweeter, as she's supposed to be.

She, however, doesn't seem to have quite found her voice and doesn't have as much confidence in her abilities. She too is talented, but she doesn't seem to "own" it. She doesn't have the same guts and confidence that Ivy has.

The show is very captivating and is great for anyone who loves music, dancing, and broadway. I definitely recommend it!
