The Sound of Snark – er, Music – Takes Over Twitter

The Most Important Thing Online: The Sound of Music Takes Over Twitter

Originally posted 12/06/2013 02:00PM

The Sound of Music sounds suspiciously like the sound of snark.

Thursday night, the new version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical – which was later turned into the iconic 1965 movie starring Julie Andrews – aired live on NBC, with Carrie Underwood and True Blood's Stephen Moyer filling the shoes of Maria and Captain Von Trapp.

But, according to Twitter, the new Sound of Music wasn't really one of viewers' favorite things.

Everyone from Cameron Diaz to DiGiorno's Pizza got in the act, live-Tweeting commentary on the sets, costumes and, of course, how bad Nazis are (thanks for the insight, Cammie D!).

Check out the best of the night below:

PEOPLE's TV Critic: A Live Sound of Music Without Much Life

Sound of Music Live Without Much Life, Says PEOPLE's TV Critic

Originally posted 12/06/2013 06:35AM

NBC's Sound of Music Live!, starring country star and American Idol winner Carrie Underwood as trilling, hill-hiking governess Maria von Trapp, was like a snow globe with scarcely any flakes.

You could turn it upside down and shake it, really shake it, but no magic ever swirled around that plastic Alpine scene.

I can't imagine it supplanting the 1965 movie, with Julie Andrews singing of warm woolen mittens and larks learning to pray in a voice so purely crystalline it can induce brain freeze.

The Sound of Music Live! Recap: There Will Be Yodeling

Originally posted 12/05/2013 11:00PM

Last night Broadway came to NBC with a live broadcast of the beloved musical The Sound of Music. The show lasted for three hours, but felt like 16 going on 17. That said, it was the perfect way to fill the void now that Smash has been cancelled.

Last night's show wasn't a re-telling of the more well-known film version, but was instead the stage version, meaning that for fans of the film, the story was abbreviated, the songs were in a different order and some new songs were added.
