The Internet is Alive with the Sound of Angry #SOML Fans

SoundofMusicLiveThere’s a von-peeved mob chiming in below the review by TIME magazine reporter Charlotte Alter of last night’s NBC presentation of The Sound of Music Live.

Some of the commenters are Broadway musical historians, pointing out factual errors. Others are self-professed Carrie Underwood fans, incensed that anyone could find 9 Things That Went Wrong. FishbowlNY did not watch the program, so we can’t really pass judgment. However, any review that starts with a triply clever Maria Shriver-Arnold Schwarzenegger reference and goes on to notations like the following has already hit our sweet spot:

Cut to Vampire Von Trapp in his Vampire von Mansion (played by Stephen Moyer of True Blood.) Moyer’s accent was sometimes German and sometimes English, which was weird because Underwood’s accent was always Southern.

To all those who watched – whether #SOML inspired visions of Brooks & FRONK-en-STEEN or Rodgers & Hamm-er-stein – we urge you to read Alter’s review and especially the comments. The action right now is almost as heavy as it was last night on Twitter.
