FLUFF: Sound of Music

NBC's three-hour televised musical The Sound of Music Live!, starring country music star Carrie Underwood as Maria von Trapp and True Blood's Stephen Moyer as Captain von Trapp, airs live tonight (Dec. 5) at 8 p.m. ET.

For the uninitiated, The Sound of Music tells the story of aspiring nun Maria's adventure to become governess for the widower Captain von Trapp's seven kids, but her romantic emotions for the Captain kick in and she begins to doubt her religious calling.

This is a video realized by NBC to pump people up for the premere...

WARNING: This movie is not after the movie but the play. It was shot live but not in front of an audience. It was carried off over 7 sets.

Did anyone watch? It was an amzing way to bring aniondic story to a new generation. They did a great job!!

 I have a thing for "black boot or boot-like" footwear. I enjoyed the kids uniform footwear...'bout sums up NBC's live version for me.

Nothing beats the original movie. It's hard to fill Julie Andrews shoes.

I didn't watch it.  The Sound of Music isn't one of my favorites at all.

We had to stream it and I thought it sucked. Like what the fuck an I watching Carrie underwood is an awful Maria kinda sucked. They should have practiced a lot more. The kids were way off their marks. I was very sad.

Just looked u previews and yeah it didn't do so hott. I thought it was great! Carrie's acting was alittle flat but after awhile I felt that she grew on you. I'm disappointed that it didnt fare better.

I guess I just feel if I'm going to watch a televised version of the sound if music going to watch the original movie. It's different if you go to live theater and you're actually in the audience. I love seeing live theater. I just don't see the point in watching a mediocre televised version of the play.
