Return Glee to the gift to fans it was when the show originated. Give fans a reason to root for their favorite characters again and let them have storylines that are real. Let fans find Glee.
This Freaky Friday season of Glee has turned the show on its head and fandoms upside down. There have been several occasions where I've thought about letting go of the show I've cherished.
There are sentimentalists out therehappy to spend much of the Christmas season looking for It's a Wonderful Life screenings. For them, Anthony E. Palermo has adapted the beloved screenplay as a one-hour radio play.
It's past due time to do the right thing. Ban the unsafe and inhumane horse carriage industry. Those who oppose this enlightened movement will assuredly be on the wrong side of history.
I was going to do a playlist for Todd Akin today, but I'm trying to waste less time on legitimate idiots. So instead, here's something completely different.
As useful and universal as the experience of living with the list has been, I can't help thinking: Isn't there something else we might add to the roster? We're always changing and growing, after all; mightn't The List reach in new directions too?
My love/hate relationship with Glee this season has, at times, been stretched to its limits. Things got a little heavy for the glee club this year, so it seems appropriate that Season 3 would end on such an emotionally confusing note.
We've got the scoop on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Bill and Guiliana Rancic, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick and Lea Michele and Cory Monteith.
Glee has never been perfect. In fact, this season, it's been far from it. But just when you count them out, the New Directions have a way of winning you over again. Ladies and gentlemen, I think I'm a gleek again.
Rachel Berry may have choked during the biggest audition of her life, but after last night's episode, it's Glee that needs the Heimlich. When will the writers realize that these Public Service Announcements are slowly killing the show?
"Glee" is back, and it's crazier than ever. Quinn's in a wheelchair, Rachel and Finn are still planning to get married (if they don't kill each other first), and Sue's having a baby. But thankfully, Matt Bomer was the most perfect guest star ever.
Instead of ignoring a character's irritating attributes, sometimes shows just turn right into the skid. When the narrative acknowledges flaws, those same flaws can become endearing parts of what make a character great.
I realize quoting "Big Spender" lyrics from Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields' Sweet Charity musical won't earn me any sweet indie cred, but I went there anyway. Why? Because it allowed me to use this as an intentionally tacky lead-in: "Who doesn't want to have some 'fun'?"
For an episode that was supposed to be all about Regionals, Glee flipped a switch on its audience and instead, turned out an episode that I don't think anyone saw coming. Suicide attempt? Check. A potentially deadly car accident? Check. Regionals win? Who cares!
For an episode that was so overhyped, I have to be honest: I was a little underwhelmed ... The absurdity of it all was too much for me to bear. It never quite lived up to the greatness that is Michael Jackson.
In many ways, "Glee's" return episode, "Yes/No," was all about growing pains and life lessons. The kids -- and the adults -- are growing up, and so it's to be expected that some of that process is going to be bit awkward, or even uneasy, to watch.
