Sure there were some revisiting of dangling threads from this seasons various plots, but the emphasis was on the music, and more often than not on the original music for the show. The one […]Read On »

One of the weekly joys of GLEE is getting a weekly Brittany fix. Each week, the writers give Heather Morris, who plays Brittany, some kind of out-of-left field line that usually proves to be absolutely hilarious. Is Brittany dumb or was she made that way? ASSIGNMENT X caught up with Morris for a few minutes recently to talk about her character, why she loves the opportunity GLEE has afforded her and her own theories into Brittany’s general lack of judgment. ASSIGNMENT X: When did you realize you were getting all the good lines on the show? HEATHER MORRIS: I realized […]Read On »

Last week ran the borderline with the title “Comeback”, and this week’s show “Blame it on the Alcohol” was just one messy step from being an ABC After School Special. I honestly hate that […]Read On »

This week ran the borderline with the title “Comeback”, and by rights every so often someone on screen would say that they were having a comeback, planning a comeback, or getting ready for a comeback. I’m not really sure why the […]Read On »

When GLEE co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed he wanted to find a compatible love interest for gay high school student Kurt (Chris Colfer) this season, everyone immediately assumed it would be Blaine (Darren Criss) – the prep school singing prodigy who has become best friends with Kurt. It’s been a will they or won’t they dance, that Murphy and his fellow co-creators Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuk have managed tact and care. For Criss, he admits he’s grateful and overwhelmed by the reception he’s received for his portrayal of the out and proud Blaine. It was a little over a year […]Read On »

In fact, I have to admit, the episodes where Sue is missing in action, have actually proven to be the stronger episodes this season. Valentine’s […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 2 – “The Sue Sylvester Bowl Shuffle”

It would seem like GLEE has bitten off too much this time out. This is an uber-ambitious episode filled with so many disparate elements, it gets confusing at times. Plus, the show throws in some pretty ridiculous subplots and it leads you to believe that everyone at McKinley High School is capable of belting out a tune and the ability to dance like there’s no tomorrow.

“The Sue Sylvester Bowl Shuffle” deals with the big football game – and whether McKinley’s students can come together and win it. There’s half the team that’s joined the Glee club, the other half think it’s silly and for sissies (well, harsher words are used).

How do you follow the thrills of the Super Bowl? Well, if you’re GLEE, you do an episode featuring Michael Jackson’s classic “Thriller” which airs tonight on Fox right after the big Super Bowl game. If you’re Matthew Morrison, who stars on GLEE as dedicated high school teacher and glee club champion Will “Shoe” Schuester, this is one more exciting moment in a ride that has seen world tours and two consecutive years presenting at the Kennedy Center Honors at the White House. Here’s his thoughts on the fortunes GLEE has brought him creatively and career-wise and where Mr. Schuester […]Read On »
