It’s quite alright if you weren’t parked in front of the boob tube for 3 hours Thursday night to take in “Peter Pan Live,” NBC’s second attempt at a holiday live theater performance on television.
Last year, we watched Carrie Underwood struggle through a performance of “The Sound of Music.”
This year we watched 71 year-old Christopher Walken inhabit Captain Hook with a performance that could have used more cowbell, and Allison Williams, daughter of Brian Williams and star of HBO’s “Girls,” play the flying boy who refuses to grow up.
You didn’t need to be watching it live – because Twitter was watching it for you. And here’s what the people were saying:
I think between scenes Christopher Walken is doing Suduko or ordering things on Amazon. That’s how he rolls. #PeterPanLive

Dog is already the only character I care about #PeterPanLive

Am I the only one thinking that since they have a real dog, they should have a real crocodile? Raise the stakes. #PeterPanLive

“I’ll Never Grow Up” has a different resonance from a bunch of 27-year-old guys obviously still living in Dad’s basement #PeterPanLive

The pirates are all dancing their faces off. Walken looks like he’s trying to remember if he left his George Foreman Grill on. #PeterPanLive

You’d think with such a mega-budget that they could get wires that aren’t black. #PeterPanLive

But, our very own Marley McMillan summed it up the most concisely.
I hate this. #PeterPanLive
