  1. Smash is really terrific right now--Yay!

    Brian :-)

  2. I couldn’t agree more, Brian! It’s kind of weird though, I actually didn’t like Smash at first. Now it’s become one of my “can’t miss” shows. Although maybe that’s not the right term to use considering I missed last night’s episode. I was bummed and thought that I’d have to wait for a re-run. Then a coworker of mine at Dish reminded me of dishonline(dot)com. It’s this free streaming site with tons of movies and shows. I checked, and sure enough, it already had the episode I missed. I know that a lot of the shows (including Smash) on dishonline is even available to everyone, whether you’re a Dish customer or not, so if you ever end up in the same predicament, you should check it out.
