Fox Announces Open Casting Call For 'Glee'

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Jan 11th 2010 6:00PM
Still upset that you're not on the up-and-coming season of 'American Idol'? Good news: Fox's other flagship show involving singing, 'Glee,' will begin a nationwide search to find the three newest Gleeks to add to the mix.

While it's too late to get into the back nine episodes (those are currently in production now) should you have the right stuff, you'll be featured in the upcoming second season.

Glee and Breaking Bad top the Satellite Awards

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 22nd 2009 9:01AM
breaking_bad_desertThe winners of 2009 Satellite Awards were announced on Sunday in Los Angeles, and when you look at the winners on the television side, you have to like the choices. Most of these shows and actors have been on our year-end "best" lists, and if I were to guess, I think you'll see many of these names on the Prime time Emmy nomination roster.

The first thing that jumped out to me was Glee. The Fox musical dramedy was a winner in five different categories, including actors Jane Lynch, Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison and Kristin Chenoweth -- for her guest role -- recognized. And the show was named Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical.

Top 10 'Glee' Performances (So Far!)

withdrawal already hitting like a cold slushee in the face? In honor of last night's fall finale of the Fox sensation (hooray, sectionals!), we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane and rehash the freshman series' top performances thus far. And while whittling down the list to just 10 meant that there were some shining numbers that didn't make the cut (sorry, 'Papa Don't Preach,' 'Single Ladies,' 'Maybe This Time' and 'Ride Wit Me') and there were some videos too recent to include (we'll catch you next time, 'Don't Rain on My Parade' and 'My Life Would Suck Without You'), herewith is a midseason rundown of our favorites. Perhaps watching these clips can help lessen the blow until next April(!), when 'Glee' finally returns after its winter break.

Review: Glee - Mattress

by Jane Boursaw, posted Dec 3rd 2009 5:02AM
Glee: Mattress
(S01E12) While they were in there, I told 'em to go ahead and yank out those tear ducts. Wasn't usin' 'em." - Sue Sylvester

I wouldn't say this is the best Glee episode we've had, but it had some good moments, and of course, that big reveal, which we'll talk about after the jump. The mattress scene was a nice little number, but I wasn't familiar with the song performed by Rachel and Finn, so that didn't do as much for me.

Sue Sylvester was back to true form from her compassionate scene with her sister a few episodes ago. It's hard to believe she'd have that much feeling for her sister, and yet still be a big you-know-what in the rest of her life. Glee breaks down stereotypes in some cases, but I'm not sure Sue falls into that category. She still seems like a caricature to me.

What's Hot on SlashControl: Endless Love on Glee

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 19th 2009 10:02AM
There were some great songs on last night's Glee, including the first one sung by Rachel and Will. As I mentioned in my review, this song set the tone for not only the episode, but the storyline of Rachel's crush on Mr. Schuester. But what was funny is that while they were singing it -- "Endless Love" -- everyone else's mind was wandering to their own thoughts of love, butts, Diana Ross, and underwear:

Kurt: "I could totally sing this song with Finn, but screw him if he thinks he's taking the Diana Ross part from me."

Puck: "I love the days when I don't wear underwear. Full commando."

Finn: "I never noticed how nice Rachel's butt is. Oh crap, I think Quinn knows I'm staring at it."

Rachel: "Wow, I've never noticed this before because he's always trying to destroy my career, but Mr. Shu has really pretty eyes."

Review: Glee - Ballad

Glee: Ballad
(S01E10) "What does a heart attack feel like?" - Finn, in a panicky call to Kurt after facing Quinn's parents at dinner

The subject of this episode of Glee was ballads. It was learned that the club must perform a ballad at sectionals in a few weeks, and the writers managed to weave the soulful songs into every storyline. The first was "Endless Love," sung by Will and Rachel. It set the tone for one of the storylines -- her crush on the teacher. In fact, the episode was filled with odd-couple pairings, thanks to a hat-draw for ballad partners.

'Glee' Casting Draws Criticism

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Nov 11th 2009 2:00PM
Let the 'Glee' backlash begin!

On tonight's episode -- dubbed 'Wheels' -- the wheelchair-bound character Artie (played by Kevin McHale) has trouble making it to regionals, presumably because of his disability. To help, Mr. Shue (Matthew Morrison) orders the rest of the Gleeks to see things from Artie's pespective. This includes a performance of Tina Turner's 'Proud Mary,' in which the Gleeks all sing in wheelchairs.

The show now has people spinning their wheels -- but not, incidentally, over the content of tonight's episode. Instead, they're targeting the decision to cast McHale, who is not actually disabled. In a lengthy article featured in the Associated Press, advocacy groups such as the Media Access Office, as well as disabled actor Robert David Hall ('CSI'), spoke out about the show's missed opportunity to cast someone in a wheelchair.

Glee: Throwdown

Glee - Jane Lynch(S01E07) "I don't trust a man with curly hair..." - Sue

I'll just say right off the bat -- I was a little bored by this episode. I think because it centered on the bickering and manipulations of Sue and Will. It was annoying and sort of made me want to turn the channel.

But I stuck with it because, of course, I had this review to write, but also because of the musical numbers scattered throughout the show. It clarified for me what I love about Glee:

  • Musical numbers.
  • Kurt. Much more Kurt is needed.
  • Any storylines with Jayma Mays (Emma Pillsbury), particularly those involving Matthew Morrison (Will).

After the jump, more about this episode and what I don't love about Glee.

Glee: The Rhodes Not Taken

Glee: The Rhodes Not Taken
(S01E05) "Oh, Bambi, I cried so hard when they shot your mom." - A drunken Kurt to Emma


Ok, after hitting it out of the park since the debut (for me anyway), this episode sort of flatlined for me. At least, it didn't grab me as much as, say, last week's episode with the Beyonce song and the football team dancing on the field. I couldn't wait to get on here and right about that episode, but this week? Not so much. Maybe it's because there was not enough Kurt in this episode. Need.More.Kurt. Need more of Kurt saying lines like, "Glee Club has just been rocked with its first scandal..."

Glee: Acafellas

Glee - Acafellas
(S01E03) "I'm gay." - Kurt to Mercedes


We're three episodes into Glee, and we continue to learn more about the characters' angst, drama, dreams and passion. Kurt told Mercedes he'd never said those words out loud, but -- like the rest of us (excluding Mercedes) -- he must have realized he was gay. I mean, come on, the kid is clearly gay.

There were a lot of great lines in this episode, but Kurt had some of the best, including this one about his car: "My dad got it for me for my 16th birthday if I swore to stop wearing form-fitting sweaters that stop at the knee. What he doesn't know won't hurt him." (He's wearing a red form-fitting sweater that stops at the knee.)

Glee -- An early look

by Allison Waldman, posted May 19th 2009 9:02AM
Lea Michele - GleeIf you heard about Fox's new musical drama/comedy Glee and thought it's probably going to be something like Disney's High School Musical, you're wrong. Gleefully wrong. Glee is one of the best entertainments I've seen on television in a long, long time.

Writer/producer/director Ryan Murphy describes the show as a hybrid, and he's right. It is. For me, I saw elements of the movie Election, plus Fame and Friday Night Lights, with a bit of The Wonder Years thrown in, only it's not nostalgia. Glee is all the best parts of all the above, plus music and dancing and great characters and really witty material.
