Now that I've seen more, the story line is kinda fun. That singing though. I wouldn't mind so much if the actors weren't singing over the original track. It makes it seem like a long, expensive youtube video! I mean, if you're going to make a musical, then make a musical.
I read a review on this, it's a remake of a english show that does the same thing with the singing, over the origional tracks, but the review I read suggested they kind of lost a lot of the energy with this version. I watched part of it, couldn't get into it. Hugh Jackman is apparently one of the show's producers.
I actually liked it. Could do without the singing. I liked the first one, but only cause it's Elvis. The rest could have been left out. But I like the overall show.
Yeah i liked it too, I thought overall it was really fun, i definitely like the casino setting. I think the singing will take some getting used to because its definitely not something you normally see in TV shows but i think the storyline seems strong
I was confused and kind of creeped out by how Melanie Griffith looked - how much work has she had done??? The musical numbers well, I thought Melanies was the worst and she really can't act, or is that how she is - Hugh, well I like Hugh but I'm not sure if I really liked him in this, jury is still out - the guy I have no clue who he is (Viva's owner) well I'm not sure about him either - And they killed Wings! why??? Now I like him! Oh well, I'll probably watch again just to see if what I actually saw the first time was real - as if did they really make this show?????
I just now figured out that this was based on Blackpool.
Now I'm disappointed it flopped, but not surprised. Americans don't get that type of stuff.
I just saw a clip - wow. Definitely not as good a quality as Blackpool. I can't believe someone at CBS let that go out there like that. The singing wasn't even synced up well. Someone lost their job over this. Or should have. Wow.
I watched about five minutes of the show and laughed my head off. Sorry but I have been to Laughlin many times and I am usually one of the youngest people there and I am just starting my 40's. I just could not get past all the pretty people in Laughlin.
