What the fuck? I used to work for a touring broadway company and this is just piss production even by that company's standards. NBC has enough money to buy and sell this country, sell it for crack, buy it back and sell it for ketamine, etc. and they can't put on a musical that doesn't look better than something from high school?

Probably blew their entire budget hiring Walken. Gimmicks are expensive these days.

The way they're using the walls as part of the set makes me think this is being filmed in a daycare.

This show is THREE HOURS LONG. It is mindbogglingly long. The original show from the 60s was expurgated to about an hour and a half, and this particular song is about 45 seconds in the original production.

If you ever see this in person, it is so long Captain Hook traditionally throws out candy to kids in the audience during this number.

I've only sat in the audience for two broadway musicals which was two too many, but at least they were interesting because of weird last-minute stuff. To each their own but I seriously can't stand it. I love Mel Brooks but hate the producers, I love Monty Python but can't stand Spamalot. Even when I was working for the Book of Mormon there was something very unfunny about it, even though it was supposed to be from the same mindset that I was coming from..

Holy fuck. I read the comments and went in expecting it to look cheap and I was STILL shocked.

Old_Zircon - 2014-12-06

I had the original cast recording of this on cassette as a kid and I absolutely hated it.

Jack Dalton - 2014-12-07

Who was the audience for this? It started at 7 ET on a weeknight and lasted more than three hours... I watched bits and pieces, and it was boring rather than terrible, which is far worse. The gimmick of doing it live made it look like a cheap college drama production. Apparently NBC hoped that snarky Millennials would "hate-watch" it and bitch on social media... Well that happened, and the ratings were bad. Also-- three hours!?!?

Like, I went to a pretty poor public high school. I remember one of the private high schools were doing Godspell and they had 100 television sets stacked up as the backdrop and all sorts of other shit. We had to do Importance of Being Fucking Earnest because there was no money for an orchestra. Suffice it to say, I was more than a little jealous of those kids and their awesome production of Godspell. I think they raised 30,000 or something for their production and I'm guessing this cost a few million.

According to the hanky code, the red hankies mean they're a fist fucker/fuckee. The fuchsia means spanker/spankee.

That guy - 2014-12-06

Wait.... which color means vag-man again? Y'know, total pussy hound. Is it pink? I'm guessing pink.

Here we go. Found my pink bandana. Gonna go wear this somewhere with a lot of women. Nail salon? An art supply store, maybe?

Can't wait to see how all the horny women react when they notice I like to do pussy sex.

This CAN'T fail.

oddeye - 2014-12-06

Doesn't it depend on which back pocket it's in too? How does frilly-nilly waving count?

That guy - 2014-12-06

Oh yeah!! I'm gonna wear a pink hanky in each pocket, so the ladies know I like vag from the top or bottom.

I probably won't be around the site for a while. Too busy, I'm assuming.

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-12-06

His Walken impression could use a little work.

That guy - 2014-12-06

It's so bad so many different ways. I knew in the delivery of his first line or two that I was in for a doozy.

The Mothership - 2014-12-06

He looks soooooo bored. Also this is really awful.

BHWW - 2014-12-06

There was much better wirework in that "Weapons of Choice Video" Walken was in.

oddeye - 2014-12-06

fucking thing sucks

That guy - 2014-12-08

I'll write it, and...

Jimmy Labatt - 2014-12-06

Oh wow

Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2014-12-06

Walken looks like a post face lift Axl Rose.

infinite zest - 2014-12-06

What's with the sudden resurgence of Peter Pan's popularity all of a sudden? This, the origins movie, and many more.. I mean, it's not a bad story or anything, and the movie actually looks kinda interesting, but it seems to be everywhere. Given that Johnny Depp hammed up the Captain Hook-esque role for at least 10 hours of childrens' lives, I'd be surprised if they kids really cared about this, and adults have porno to watch.

oddeye - 2014-12-06

Jake and the Neverland Pirates cash-wagon dogpile.

EvilHomer - 2014-12-07

It's the Cycle of Reboots. Peter Pan is the latest IP scheduled for regurgitation, and they want to flush Pan out of our systems in time for Terminator and Star Wars 7.0.

ShiftlessRastus - 2014-12-06

This feels like a scene from Extras. I kept expecting Ricky Gervais to come prancing on deck.

Hooker - 2014-12-06

Wait, theatrical? This wasn't live?

Hooker - 2014-12-06

Wait, it's even called Peter Pan Live. What am I missing?

Hammer Falls - 2014-12-07

I caught the last 90 minutes. The camera work and the edits were atrocious. It helped imagining there was some Bill-Murray-in-Scrooged-character drinking himself to death while this was airing.

Boomer The Dog - 2014-12-07

I want to see how Nana is played in this. From ads I saw that she's apparently a live Dog and not a costumed one.

Musicals might be getting popular, Annie is out in the new movie, and musical talent shows are popular too.

I'm all for it, I want to see a new musical Doctor Dolittle! It didn't do as well as expected in 1969, but they could goose it up with talking animals and blow some people's minds.


infinite zest - 2014-12-07

The last broadway production I worked on was War Horse, which was pretty incredible. It wasn't a real horse but rather puppeteers functioning a horse (something that I'm guessing was lost in the movie.) Our biggest problem was with Aida years ago, where we got a real elephant. The elephant was fine during rehearsals but got scared and took an elephant-sized shit right into the orchestra pit on opening night.

A Dr. Doolittle Broadway revival would be awesome.

themilkshark - 2014-12-07

It's so weird that this happened.

gravelstudios - 2014-12-07

Oh, come on guys. I didn't think it was all that bad.

dementomstie - 2014-12-07

Have you seen the whole thing? Walken's "held note" here at the end is almost the highlight of the whole thing.

The true highlight is that Shmee has a Mandalorian tattoo.

gravelstudios - 2014-12-08

I did watch the whole thing. A broadway musical, performed live for free. I'm not trying to claim that it was perfect by any stretch, but it was still better than 99% of the shit they put on TV. The long note was stupid, but they hung a lampshade on it which with those commercial bumps, so they knew nobody was buying it. Overall, I thought the good parts were really good, and the bad parts were laughably entertainingly bad. Lighten up people.
