Do You Cringe When Your Favorite TV Show Does A Musical Episode?
Grey's Anatomy anyone?
But The Flash (with guest star Supergirl) had a winner of a musical episode for many reasons.
1) The Finale Song "Running Home To You" was penned by La La Land Song writers.
Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
2) "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" star and creator, Rachel Bloom wrote the upbeat "Super Friends" number.
3) Covers mixed with new material to blend in seamlessly with the musical.
4) It actually moved the plots of both shows forward and was NOT a filler episode.
AND MOST IMPORTANT
5) THE CAST COULD REALLY SING!
Flash (Grant Gustin) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Music Meister (Darren Criss) are all Glee alumni!
Jessie Martin (Joe West) starred in the musical, Rent, and Carlo Valdes (Cisco) was in the musical, Once.
John Barrowman and Victor Garber are both Broadway vets
And they knocked a Guys and Dolls cover out of the park.
When you have talent, songs, and writing like this, how could you go wrong!
