Fine. I'll watch an episode just so I can say "hah! I told you so!"
I'll concede it looks better than HSM (not hard) but I will take umbrage with the idea that the songs are "brilliantly rendered". Every song I've heard has been horrifically mutilated. The storyline making sense isn't my problem.
Musicals are just a no-no in my book. Music, TV and films are separate mediums as far as I'm concerned and should stay that way. Generally people who make good TV don't make good music, and vice-versa.
