At this point, there are so many problems with Glee that is much easier to just say “it sucks!” and move on. Fortunately (or more likely, unfortunately) for you folks, I am much more verbose than that, and I am also so intrigued by the reasons that Glee has so many problems that I cannot … Continue reading Review: Glee, “Hold on to Sixteen”
Despite all its issues, Glee has had a lot of success with exploring the challenges of being gay. I have some issues with how and why Kurt jumped to Dalton last year, but the only good part of season two was his season-long journey to coming out and self-acceptance. The series took Kurt’s challenges and … Continue reading Review: Glee, “I Kissed A Girl”

If Will Schuester runs for public office against Sue Sylvester I will burn down Fox Television Studios, never watch television again and quit Twitter. Glee has had some terrible ideas in its first two-plus years on the air, but the political campaign portion of season three is already at the top of the list. Having … Continue reading Review: Glee, “I Am Unicorn”
The title to this post is somewhat misleading because I've actually had my "official" Emmy picks finished for a few days, aside from a few of the minor categories I wrapped up yesterday. However, thanks to my summer excursion into manual labor, this is the first time I've had a real good chunk of time … Continue reading TV Surveillance Last Minute Emmy Nomination Picks
