Prince Eric in the Little Mermaid#1

Is it just me...or does he just seem useless? I mean, obviously his character's existence is so vital to the plot, but his songs and everything just seem so forced and boring. "Her Voice" just seems like a three minute and eighteen second annoying break in the plot.

Agree? Disagree?

I have not seen the show, and do not plan on doing so any time soon. But I did buy the Cast recording, and it did seem like he was just kind-of like an after thought. Like they said "Shit, we forgot to give him a song!"

i'm not a huge fan of "her voice", but one of my fav. moments in the show is "one step closer"...is helps you connect to the characters SO much more than the movie did!

I don;t know about Prince Eric, but I do know that Sean Palmer is USELESS.

His voice cracked twice at my performance and he overacted EVERYTHING. I know it's a Disney musical but c'mon...

I had an understudy who was actually great. I meant more the character, however, but yeah. I see what you mean.

That video seriously NEVER gets old to me. I end up laughing so hard every time I watch it, and then the rest of my family looks at me like I am a freak...

Yeah, I agree, but Palmer still has a great a**. re: Prince Eric in the Little Mermaid

Love his tights. And his voice is quite nice on the CD.

But the character is useless. The show really never decides what story it's trying to tell. A love story; A fish out of water story or a father/daughter story...no focus.
