Stars: Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Ryan Murphy Director: Eric Stoltz Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: May 8, 2012 Sometimes GLEE hits an almost giddy high of capturing the essence of 1980s teen angst films while also living up to the potential of the first half of its own Season 1. With “Prom-asauras” there are still remnants of the things that frustrate long-time fans (myself included), but it’s made up by […]Read On »

Whereas most TV shows would deal with graduation and the end of high school during the last couple of the episodes, GLEE has made it a point to wring every kind of […]Read On »

Paying homage to one of the best selling soundtracks of all time – SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER – the episode is dubbed “Saturday Night Glee-ver” because, well, no one could have come […]Read On »

Often times it feels like every other episode is on target, and that couldn’t be more true as GLEE returns from a nearly two month hiatus with “Big […]Read On »

The Dork Side: I’m Breaking Up With GLEE

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 »

After enduring perhaps the worst episode of the season with “Heart,” GLEE rebounds with perhaps one of the best episodes of year with “On My Way.” It’s like there are two different shows being made concurrently. On one […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 3 – “Heart”

For a show titled “Heart,” there was little of it in another frustratingly bad episode of GLEE. As we await Nationals, the series has been treading water, trying to find focus after a string of exceptional episodes in the fall. There also seems to be a disingenuous attempt to find out […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 3 – “The Spanish Teacher”

I also felt a little violated as well, since after an episode of “Michael,” the series immediately dived in to another bit of stunt casting with Ricky Martin and the producers promised […]Read On »

They’re also a breeze, writing-wise, since there’s so much effort put into cramming in more than the normal allotment of music in the episode, there’s less time to really flesh out the story elements as well […]Read On »

The theme, if you hadn’t guessed from the title is “Yes/No” – which deals with various characters […]Read On »
