So many shows try a musical episode at least once in their run. I must say this is the first one I can remember that actually had all singing characters able to carry a tune, most with fairly good voices. That alone made this a cut above other attempts at musicals. I did find it a little hard to follow at times and the music a little distracting (besides the fact that I fell asleep while watching). After two viewings, I actually had to back it up to find out who did it and why but it was good enough to sit through the two views and I will probably watch again. I think it may be one of those that grows on you as you quit being distracted by the singing and dancing and simply embrace it as part of the story. By the way, I do love musicals, but not for everything.
