my use of "miss" was 100% a brain fart. I would've sworn I typed flop as I definitely meant flop.

to be clear (and I thought I said this in the prior post but now I have started questioning myself), I am in no way advocating for the exclusive use of hit and flop to mean anything other than made money/lost money. I am very happy with the use of any other words to mean a success or failure on other than financial terms. In fact I would be delighted if we just used success or failure as those two words, and let them cover any subjective assessment of a production. But hit and flop are terms of art and I do think it is wrong (imo) to misappropriate them as some seem to do. I also have a thing about cast recordings and soundtracks, but that's another song. :-)
