This is painful

I was not thrilled about this live version of the Sound of Music but I thought I'd give it a chance.

Ugh. This is soooo painful. Carrie can NOT act. She's got the voice but everything else is horrible.

Time to change the station. I'll stick with the original thanks.

Anyone else trying to watch it?

I started to watch it, but I'm not in the mood. I guess I can appreciate the live aspect of it though.

I lasted until they changed the order of the songs.  I could almost bear the lower ranges and mediocre acting because the girls were kind of enjoying it.  We are watching Muppet Christmas Carol as I wait for YDD to fall asleep.  I need the original version of Sound of Music now.  I need a Julie Andrews fix now!

im watching. I dont think any of the acting is stellar. It is like summer stock with much better sets.

Didn't even want to watch. I'm not a fan of remakes.

Trying, yes. After about an hour of struggling through I decided I couldn't quit....would be wasting an hour if I stopped. So yeah, watching, counting down the minutes until it's over. I wonder what the Von Trapp descendents think about it.
