One week, you’re feeling lousy about what the show just did, the next week you’re surprised it pulled itself out of the muck and delivered a good episode. That trend seems to already be in place […]Read On »

Guest Column by JOSIE CAMPBELL for TV.com GLEE just began its third season on Fox (airing Tuesday nights),  and even though the show tackles complex themes like teen pregnancy, gay rights, disability, and alienation through show stopping numbers and Top 40 hits, sometimes the music selection can be a bit hit and miss at times. While the showrunners of GLEE obviously don’t need our help in coming up with new themes and songs to tackle, we still felt it would be fun to come up with a list of our own Top 10 songs that we would like to see […]Read On »

The season three premiere “The Purple Piano Project” already feels like the show has “been there, done that” hitting some of the same beats as […]Read On »

TCA 2011: Fox addresses recent GLEE controversy, spin-off status and Season 3

With GLEE entering Season 3, controversy has dogged the Fox show in the last few weeks. Some of it stems with co-creator Ryan Murphy talking about writing three of the show’s primary leads off the show (Chris Colfer, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith) at the end of this season by having them graduating, but failing to mention he was quietly developing a spin-off for them. It all blew up in everyone’s face, with tons of back-pedaling, and at today’s Summer 2011 Television Critics Association executive session, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly spoke about it from the network perspective. “The public nature […]Read On »

This season had some really high points, and some horribly preachy overdone episodes, but all in all I try to just remember the moments that honestly were amazing. Following on the heels of last week’s episode “Funeral” (which was one of BEST episodes of the […]Read On »

The Dork Side: The problem with GLEE and its real “agenda”

I like GLEE. I really do, but, I have a problem with it, and I want you to know that I criticize it, because I care. Conservative pundits have been ranting about the supposed gay agenda the show is pushing, which is completely ridiculous. Of course, several media outlets ran with the story even though it’s total crap. There is no gay agenda. It’s just a TV show that treats its gay characters like actual human beings. “Gay people are people, too. Film at 11.” GLEE (which airs its Season 2 finale tonight) does a lot of things right. It […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 2 – “Funeral”

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: Ryan Murphy Director:  Bradley Buecker Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: May 18, 2011 Characters should be the backbone of any TV series. They should move a series forward, they should connect with an audience and there should be some consistency in their actions as well. With GLEE in Season 2, it’s proven to be a topsy-turvy ride character-wise with random motivations, left-field personality switches and a heavy reliance on romantic pairings that […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 2 – “Prom Queen”

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

Exclusive Interview: GLEE star Kevin McHale gets his funk 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 »
