Anyone hoping for another NBC musical hate-watch were probably disappointed by Peter Pan Live! Thursday night.
It wasn't perfect by any means – switching between live singing and all those filmed ads killed just about any theatrical energy and flow well before the three hours were up – but the production was colorful and glitch-free.
Allison Williams of Girls made a much more committed Peter than Carrie Underwood did a Maria von Trapp in last year's endless Sound of Music Live!, and Christopher Walken's extremely peculiar Captain Hook was a triumph.

In NBC's newest behind-the-scenes video for its upcoming live TV event, Peter Pan Live!, Williams admits she was nervous about taking on the role of the boy who can fly.

It was all about the ladies for Elizabeth Banks on Thursday night.
The Hunger Games star took in a relaxing evening filled with fashion at an intimate Dannijo and Tucker Tea event at a private home in Beverly Hills.
Joined by pals Maria Menounos and Minnie Driver, the trio "sipped on wine and tried on jewels and clothing all throughout the night," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Everyone was in good spirits. It was a very lighthearted, mellow evening."
Mandy Moore, Kathleen Robertson, Dita Von Teese, Whitney Port, Jordana Brewster and Judy Greer were also among the women in attendance who hung out poolside at the early evening fte.
This was a busy week for Driver, who just one day earlier, hosted an Olympics-themed private dinner event in Beverly Hills with Beefeater Gin, in honor of her British roots.
