Gleeks and Non-Gleeks: Express Yourselves!
Thanks so much for showing us how Jane Lynch (a.k.a. Sue Sylvester) ”C”s it, and for the interview with Heather Morris, whose breakout performance of dim but sweet Brittany is a weekly treat. But I wanted to read more on Chris Colfer. His nuanced portrayal of Kurt Hummel is groundbreaking, heartbreaking, and Emmy-worthy.

Glee‘s co-creator Ryan Murphy says, ”I just didn’t think people would get it.” Murphy needs to get over himself, because there’s not much to get about Glee. Outside of Jane Lynch, who’s good in everything, the series is nothing more than a gimmick, using American Idol-type songs to make up for clichéd characters and recycled story lines.
New York City
Best. Cover. Ever! Now we know what it looks like to get slushied. Love the cover. Love the show.
I was thinking about the question 24 co-creator Robert Cochran raised in your article about the end of the show: ”How do you fight something that’s evil without becoming evil?” You know what would be a truly awesome follow-up to the series? Another remake of The Prisoner, with Jack Bauer being held in the Village. You’d have to change the format from hours to days or months, but his struggle against a succession of Number 2s would bring me back week after week.
Lords of the Dance
Yes, Dancing With the Stars is the same kind of schlocky dance show that originated 60 years ago. But it would be a big mistake to turn off So You Think You Can Dance after a few weeks because ”one TV dance show is pretty much just like another.” Focus on Cat Deeley’s tigress dresses and enormous hair to get you through the early audition shows, but stick around for the mind-blowing dancing. SYTYCD‘s dancers are in a league of their own. I demand a rewatch! And maybe a dance-off…
