Incidentally, if I could figure out what […]Read On »

Kevin McHale plays the wheelchair bound Artie on the hit Fox series GLEE, and one of the most surprising things about the character and the actor himself is the eclectic group of songs he gets to sing. And in Season 2, he’s also fallen in love and broken up with the show’s ditzy Brittany (Heather Morris). We briefly spoke to the young actor as he discusses his favorite songs, the show’s success and being a role model. ASSIGNMENT X: Are you surprised at how successful the show has become – especially since the first 13 episodes were done in a […]Read On »

I think that’s the one statement that best sums up my feelings of season two. Season One was a really strong start to a very promising series, but once all of the hype died down a bit, and the second season started I kept getting the feeling that the storylines were […]Read On »

Stars: Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Mark Salling, Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Brad Falchuk Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: April 26, 2011 With the amount of story GLEE chews through in “Born this Way,” it reminds the viewer how necessary it is for this series to gain a little more consistency with doling out story for its core group of characters and actually dig a little deeper than “theme week” every week. That’s not to say that “Born this Way” doesn’t […]Read On »

With “A Night of Neglect,” this episode clearly feels like something that was hobbled together to fill in the gaps until the series can regroup and figure out what to do before Show […]Read On »

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 »

Exclusive Interview: GLEE star Heather Morris gets into the groove

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 »

I feel so much better now that I get to review an episode I thoroughly enjoyed on multiple levels, and “Sexy” was one of my favorites for the year. Let’s just start with the return of the amazing Gwyneth Paltrow as […]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 »
