| The most daring and innovative show ever to air on broadcast TV
When I talk to friends about the dismal failure of most TV execs to break out of their cookie-cutter molds which produce nothing but hours of so-called "reality TV" or another reworked movie-of-the week, I can still point to this show as the boldest idea I've ever seen on TV.

I was stunned that someone had the guts to create a show this different. I watched the first show and was blown away - it was excellent! My only worry, even before the first episode aired, was that it would be nearly impossible for them to keep up the schedule of creating entirely new music week after week, even with the great talents of Randy Newman, (writing music has to be 20x harder than writing dialog). I don't remember if I saw every episode but I was greatly impressed with what I saw - something completely new and original on TV.

So, I knew the show was doomed from the start but I still continue to applaud the attempt - it turned out better than I was expecting and I will be looking for it on DVD to add to my very small collection of must-have TV shows.

[ The only other TV show which comes to mind that I'd call groundbreaking was the short-lived series, Firefly, (first in my must-have collection); a space Western, literally, but even Joss Whedon didn't dare try to have his characters SING every week! (He did however create a single musical episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" which was also outstanding). ]
