Teen weddings, texting while driving accidents, suicide attempts: When did GLEE turn into ONE GLEE HILL? I’m sorry, GLEE, but it’s over between us. I’m breaking up with you. I do appreciate GLEE. I understand what it is you’re trying to do. It usually sends a positive message about acceptance and understanding. I don’t love the message it sends to young girls, which is that boys are everything and should be the center of their worlds. But, on the whole, the show means well. I get it. I don’t know exactly when GLEE lost me. It happened gradually. I used …Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 29, 2012  After the men delivered a mix bag of songs on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, the chicks are up and hopefully will perform better. Now, obviously I was in the minority when it comes to the judging given how much every singer was just dandy in their eyes last night.

You’ve got a woman dressed as Little Red Riding Hood turning up dead in Central Park with what looks like gashes from a wold all over her. The Snow White shows up dead with …Read On »

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: David Marshall Grant Director: Michael Morris Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: February 27, 2012 There is no getting around it that SMASH is a fun show to watch. The singing and dancing are wonderful fun. The original songs don’t suffer too much from Andrew Lloyd Webber syndrome (beating you over the head with soulful sappiness and the tendency to become insidious ear worms). In fact, the  featured production number in this episode “The Cost of Art,” I Never Met a Wolf Who Didn’t Love to Howl, …Read On »
