I'm late coming to this, and still catching up with season 1, but am I the only person who thinks that Cory Montieth looks...unfinished? Like someone took him out of the oven too soon?

That's the way I feel about Ellie Kemper (the Bridesmaid who is the current "The Office" receptionist). Then I kind-of realized it's just because, well, I'm old.

Well, you'll appreciate it when you get to the s. 2 finale. Direct quote (said to Will): "your kids look like they haven't been baked properly".

:lol: omg that's hysterical. Somewhere my doppelganger is apparently writing for Glee.
(meanwhile, random note: on my flight from Detroit to White Plains today, exchanged brief pleasantries with young african american guy in boarding lounge, very hip guy, with a fairly heavy-hitting job, based on the cell calls he made while we were waiting. Wound up sitting next to him on the flight. Had to stifle laughter when, once we were at altitude, he pulled out his laptop and started watching an episode of Glee.)

Ok, I probably shouldn't have watched this at the office, since it made me laugh out loud.

Loved the budget line, and the Brad puppet you can see at the end.

Just a quick question - what day is Glee broadcast on in the US?

I'm asking as it's not on here AGAIN this week, apparently due to Thanksgiving.
Statler: Well, how do you like the film?
Waldorf: I've seen detergents leave a better film than this.

Thanks Todd and Mazer. We had the mash-ups one last week. So I'll blame the US X-Factor for us not having an episode this week (is X-Factor broadcast on Thursdays, perchance?)

Pinball Wizard - while totally awesome - seemed a very odd choice for this show, and for a show choir of 18-year-olds to be performing, don't you think? And most kids watching Glee won't know what the hell Pinball Wizard is. Heck, they've probably never seen a pinball machine ever. Seemed more to play to my generation and those slightly older, not really Glee's core audience. The number was great fun, but it just struck me as an odd choice by the writers.

On another note, Will Schuester as Sue Sylvester might be my favourite Glee moment all year.

Like when they did that Fleetwood Mac episode. Do they think kids watching have even heard of Fleetwood Mac, or even care?

Or Saturday Night Fever?
On the other hand, the dinosaur song in the prom scene, was stupid enough to fit these kids.

The Freaky Friday switch scene was hilarious.

Yes, so much so. I only wish it had gone on longer.
A friend had a theory that part of why Glee was initially so popular was song choices that appealed to an older audience than the characters - things like "Don't Stop Believing" are great nostalgic/karaoke songs for some of us. That said, I do agree for a lot of their choices, how meaningful are the songs to the kids, even a group of musically inclined ones? Even the Whitney and Michael tribute eps - these are characters who have only been alive when both of those artists were already into their more, um, troubled phases of their careers. Would they really revere them so much?
I have real concerns about next season with the split narrative, but I'm interested to see who stays and who goes from the cast.

Also, of all the Nationals songs, I think "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" was probably the most inappropriate choice.

I also wished the switch theme would last longer, and considering two episodes were broadcasted that day, I thought at first it would be a two parter that will be resolved in the second episode.
You might be right with the choice of song and the desire to appeal to an older audiene, or considering the show creators aren't teenagers anymore, it might be partly their choice. As for me, since I hate musicals, the only reason I still watch this show is because I like its humor.
