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: Ali Adler Director: Brad Falchuk Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: February 14, 2012 Ugh! 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 »

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: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: February 7, 2012 Throughout most of the GLEE episode “The Spanish Teacher” I felt bored, and then offended and finally, just plain confused. 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 »

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: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: January 31, 2012 As far as ratings stunts go, “theme episodes” on GLEE are usually pretty impressive ratings getters. 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 »

TV shows must stop the madness now. How many times can you pay homage to HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS?, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER and countless […]Read On »

With high school ending for […]Read On »

And with “I Kissed A Girl” we get another strong episode paying off the many story strands that have been set up over the first part of the season. The primary focus is the de-icing […]Read On »

The focus of the […]Read On »

The episode’s theme is, no surprise, “The First […]Read On »
