Glee Christmas Special Needs More Chewbacca

It's the holiday season and Glee's iTunes sales are down, which means they need an episode that's chock full of songs and light on plot more than ever. Since the musical numbers are often the highlight of the show, there's nothing really wrong with that, but it almost seems like Glee went out of its way to make the… » 12/14/11 1:58am 12/14/11 1:58am

Glee: The Return Of Sam, And Quinn's Sanity

Glee's Sectionals episode has arrived once again, which means it's time for the the wrap off a few loose storylines from the first half of the season.

Glee Traumatizes Children By Advocating Loving, Responsible Sex

Before tonight's episode of Glee even aired, it was attacked by the Parents Television Council for behaving with "gross recklessness" by "celebrating teen sex." (The anti-gay Culture and Media Institute also complained that the show is "stepping up its campaign of homosexual promotion," but attacks from bigots are… » 11/09/11 1:26am 11/09/11 1:26am

Glee: Awful Adoption Plot, Now With More Taboo Romance

This week's Glee featured an enjoyable new character, some solid performances, and a long-awaited milestone in Brittany and Santana's relationship. However, to paraphrase Gandalf, it's essential that fans hate and love the show, as they hate and love themselves, so the writers also had the already-terrible adoption… » 11/02/11 1:04am 11/02/11 1:04am

Glee Under Fire For Adoption Foolishness

This season on Glee, one of the major plotlines involves 17-year-old Quinn scheming to win back the baby she put up for adoption, then never referenced for an entire season. The story is soap opera-y (in a bad way) and doesn't make much sense, but the problem is more serious than a few million fans screaming "JUST… » 10/13/11 12:38am 10/13/11 12:38am

Glee: "Diva Off" Shocker Pits Mercedes Against Rachel

On tonight's Glee two severely underused characters finally got their own storyline: Mike Chang and Mercedes. While we learned that Mike can do more than perform incredible dance moves and make excessive references to the fact that he and he and Tina are Asian, Mercedes might have been better off with her usual two… » 10/05/11 12:38am 10/05/11 12:38am

Glee Cast Covers David Bowie For Fashion's Night Out

In this Anna Wintour-approved music video the Glee kids cover David Bowie's 1980 hit "Fashion." Weirdly, Sam, who won't be on the show next season, is more visible than Kurt, the most fashionable student at McKinley High. Artie's wheelchair is also conspicuously absent. We'll assume that the cast isn't supposed to… » 8/24/11 9:19pm 8/24/11 9:19pm

Your Favorite Glee Stars Actually Aren't Leaving The Show

Remember how Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy said Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer would be leaving the show at the end of next season, and you didn't care so much about Finn but were distraught over the prospect of a life without Kurt? Well, we have good news: executive producer/co-creator Brad Falchuk… » 7/24/11 8:00pm 7/24/11 8:00pm

Glee: Can't Make It There, Can't Make It Anywhere

In this week's Glee finale, New Directions heads to New York to compete in Nationals and stage impromptu performances at various spots around the city. In a first for TV shows about small town kids visiting the big city for the first time, no cranky New Yorker tells them to shut the hell up! (Though they probably… » 5/25/11 12:44am 5/25/11 12:44am

Glee: Prom Queen Race Ends With A Slap In The Face

This week on Glee, Kurt learned that despite the creation of Santana's Bully Whips squad, the students at McKinley are still discriminating against homosexuals.

Glee: Fondue Is In, Santana's Secret Is Out

This week's episode is all about rumors, which conveniently allows Schue to assign songs from the Fleetwood Mac album of the same name (plus one "u"). During her ridiculously amusing web series "Fondue For Two" (which should definitely become a real thing) Brittany accidentally announces that Santana "plays for the… » 5/04/11 12:44am 5/04/11 12:44am

Glenn Beck Admits Weakness In The Face Of Glee

On Thursday Glenn Beck delivered an epically moronic rant about how Glee is destroying America. Now, if you think Beck attacked this week's 90-minute Glee acceptancepalooza, which featured a dreamy gay guy serenading his boyfriend and a girl urging her lady love to come out, you're giving him more credit than he… » 5/02/11 11:50am 5/02/11 11:50am
