Glee Report Card: West Side Boring

Glee Report Card: West Side Boring

I’m kind of freaking out, because I haven’t hated Glee two weeks in a row now. Like, I’m not on the love train, but the begrudging enjoyment train is almost as problematic. Weirdly enough, there’s been an increased focus on plot and some hints of character development. On the other hand, more plot means fewer songs, which is actually kind of disappointing. Especially if you’re doing a weekly recap focused on grading the episodes’ musical numbers. What about my needs, Ryan Murphy? More »

Poll: Is Matthew Morrison’s NKOTBSB Tour Dancing Fun Or Just Pathetic?

Poll: Is Matthew Morrison's NKOTBSB Tour Dancing Fun Or Just Pathetic?

Despite getting his start as superb dancer Link Larkin in Broadway’s Hairspray, Matthew Morrison must have a contractual obligation that forces him to give all of the dance scenes on Glee to the kids. We know this because he breaks into dance at every other chance he gets: On Oprah, on Jay Leno, and now at the NKOTBSB tour. He’s opening for the New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys supergroup, but his moves just don’t seem to be up to snuff. More »

How to Keep the ‘Glee’ Kids on TV After they Graduate from McKinley High

How to Keep the 'Glee' Kids on TV After they Graduate from McKinley High

Glee creator Ryan Murphy has said that Rachel, Finn and the rest of the gang will be graduating at the end of season three because “you can’t stay in high school forever.” Ha! It’s like he’s never watched TV. Maybe Mr. Murphy can learn a thing or two from the writers of these high school dramas. Because they sat down in a meeting, looked at each other and thought, what would Boy Meets World be without Shaun and Corey?, Buffy without Xander and Willow?. The answer: hollow, empty, shells of TV shows. And if Glee were to become a hollow shell, there’d be a damn echo to deal with as well. More »

Matthew Morrison Is Joining the NKOTBSB Tour -- Here Are Some of His Cheesiest Songs

Glee star Matthew Morrison just announced on Good Morning America that he’ll be hopping on a leg of the New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys tour this summer. We think he’s a perfect fit, thanks to the repertoire of cringe-inducing hits he’s covered on the Fox show, plus his own original music offerings. Check out our video gallery to jog your memory.

‘Glee’ Recap: All Hail General Zon!

'Glee' Recap: All Hail General Zon!

After a lengthy hiatus, Glee is back in action and ready for devastating amounts of evil. Demonic Sue calls a meeting of the demented minds in the middle of the night, time usually designated for Sylvester’s “bow-hunting for hobos.” Joining in the insidious coach of Vocal Adrenaline Dustin Goolsby (Cheyanne Jackson), disgraced glee coach Sandy Ryerson (Stephen Tobolowsky) and of course Terri Schuester, shrew. Sue dubs them Sargent Handsome, The Pink Dagger, Honeybadger respectively, before handing out their assignments designed to take down Will Schuester’s pride and joy. It goes without saying that Goolsy fails to ruin Schue’s current relationship and Sandy biffs the opportunity to ruin the glee kids’ performance. As for the Honeybadger? Ah, she lies in wait… More »

‘Glee’ Recap: Hell To The No

'Glee' Recap: Hell To The No

Regionals are here! Just in time for the Glee kids to hastily write original songs for the competition! The song plunges in with an immediate Warblers rendition of “Misery,” then segues swiftly into Rachel emotes through “Only Child,” the single kid’s lament. “Damn you, dads!” she howls. Unfortunately for the only Berry on her family tree, Quinn sees her flirting with Finn and vows to never let Rachel stand in the way of her ultimate goal: prom queen. Oh, by the way, when exactly did Quinn get possessed by a demon? “How damaged does a guy have to be to be into someone as annoying as Rachel,” she snarls inside her mean girl brain, before describing herself as “relatively sane for a girl” and fondling what appears to be centuries of prom crowns. Prom queens live an average of five years longer, Quinn notes, probably because most of us lose a few years to vomiting over the statements like that. In an effort to sabotage any romantic inclinations Rachel still has by keeping a close eye on her (sure, why not), Quinn offers to write an original song with her. In turn, all the gleeks decide to write their own tune, and the premise if off and running! More »

‘Glee’ Recap: Vegetarianism For Lions, or It’s Like Hugging But Wetter

'Glee' Recap: Vegetarianism For Lions, or Itâs Like Hugging But Wetter

We hereby call to order The Celibacy Club! Rachel, Quinn and Emma meet in an empty classroom to confirm their commitment to not getting it, or as Ms. Pillsbury would put it, being “terrified of the hose monster.” When her chastity charms start being used as nipple rings, Emma runs into the physical manifestation of boning, i.e. Gwyneth Paltrow’s substitute teacher Holly Holiday, currently filling in for a heath teacher with a terrible case of the herp. Paltrow at her most winsome dismisses Emma’s concerns about helping sexualize children, opting instead to demonstrate condoms on cucs. This proves to be an essential lesson.

Glee Recap: McKinley High’s Walk Of Shame

Glee Recap: McKinley High's Walk Of Shame

There’s trouble afoot at McKinley High, and no, it’s not the fact that Sue Sylvester now tends to fly into a child-throwing rampage any time anything doesn’t go her demonic way. No, according to Principal Figgins, the problem is giggle juice, the wet devil, ol’ lady hooch and the teen drunks Figgins finds staggering down the halls of his very own school. Since glee club is the least socially respected group in school, why not have them perform an anti-drinking song at the Alcohol Awareness rally? Other than the fact that sweet, life-giving booze is the only thing standing in between most people and a life of dull drudgery, of course.

That’s what I got from the episode, anyway. Seriously, every scene except one made my mouth water for a sip of some of the hard stuff. More »

Video: Matthew Morrison Gives An Impromptu Performance At A Kennedy Center Party

Video: Matthew Morrison Gives An Impromptu Performance At A Kennedy Center Party

Sometimes when people randomly break out in song on Glee, we’re like, man that would never happen in real life. But last night it totally did, so now we have to eat our words. At the Kennedy Center Honors afterparty, Matthew Morrison grabbed the mic and performed three impromptu songs from My Fair Lady. This clip’s got him singing “The Street Where You Live” and it’s just as swoon-worthy as you’d assume. Glee wardrobe department: More tuxedos, please! More »
