Things We Saw Today: The First Poster for NBC’s The Sound of Music

You remember: This is NBC’s upcoming live production of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood as Maria and True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer as Captain Von Trapp. My brain doesn’t know what it’s doing. Am I indignant? Horrified? Amused? Do I even care? If I have to be subjected to these conflicting emotions then so do you. (Entertainment Weekly)
