How Was Your Week: Special Extrasode
“How Was Your Smash”: Jason Grote, Nate Harris, Rachel Shukert
Fade in on a show…with a focus on Smash…
HEY GUYS! It’s the first episode ever of How Was Your Smash!
On this special Extra-Sode (it’s not a minisode because, bitch, it’s LONG), Julie talks at length to three guests about the best television of all time, Smash! First up it’s Nate Harris, and he shares his five and a half favorite moments from the show after chatting before and after the season finale about whether Smash is too straight, why the term and concept of hate-watching must be destroyed, and what the best thing to say is when somebody gives you a massive sum of money.
Then, Smash season one writer Jason Grote is here to discuss the show alongside with Vulture Smash recapper Rachel Shukert! Learn what Julia was meant to be eating in bed instead of peanut butter! How the show could have made more sense if Katherine McPhee had played Katherine McPhee instead of Karen Cartwright! And why Derek will never not be likeable.
Also! Julie asks some How Was Your Week friends/ Smash fans what their favorite moments from season one were and therefore, there are cameos in this episode from Morgan Murphy! Jackée Harry! Retta! Scott Brown! Holly Schlesinger! My Gentleman friend, Jack! And Billy Eichner.
Finally, the Smash Twitter accounts are finally discussed. An easter egg! To say nothing of the Joan Didion anecdote that takes place at Anjelica Huston’s house. I know! Yikes.
