[Here's Matthew Morrison] as Lt. Cable in the Lincoln Center revival of "South Pacific":  his pants sure are going south:


Sigh. I love it when they've got that little "ridge" where the hip meets the torso. ...  ;D

I hope you watched Glee tonight Jeff!  It was a really good episode.  Some truly hilarious moments (I actually found myself laughing out loud at one point).  The football team dancing on the field in full gear just absolutely cracked me up.  I thought they did that really well. But, then a really touching set of scenarios with Kurt.  The exchange with his Dad at the end was very well done I thought.

I also thought that Jane Lynch was fantastic tonight.

I'm afraid not. As much as enjoy the dancing--and Matthew Morrison--in Glee, in the end my loyalty is to my police procedurals. It was Law & Order: SVU for me. I'll keep checking TV Guide to see whethe they're rebroadcasting Glee at another time, or maybe I'll catch it in reruns in the spring.

Actually, the "over-the-top, broad humor" in the show that Paul finds attractive I find off-putting. I never really cared much for Scrubs or The Office, either (except for that boyishly cute John Krasinsky in The Office).

Extra credit: In what Jake Gyllenhaal film did John Krasinsky appear?*

Incidentally, a critic in TV Guide thinks the Glee people have made a major blunder in having Will's wife fake a pregnancy. FWIW. ...

Also, I'm thrilled to see Jane Lynch in Glee.  She was a character in the L Word, and she was great in that too.

Wow, she is everywhere! Comedies like Role Models, upscale films like Julie and Julia ... I just looked at her IMDb profile, and she's been in 45 things just since 2007 -- many of them TV shows with multiple episodes, which only count as one on the list, so really far more than 45 things.

Yeah, I noticed she'd been busy too when I looked at her Imdb page.  She's doing great in Glee so far I think.  I thought this most recent episode really was the strongest so far.

Love Glee, love the singing, love the characters, even kind of fond of the story line.

Same here. I've seen every episode from both seasons---some more than once!  :)

I've been sort-of catching up with the show over the summer. I enjoy the singing and the dancing.

Matthew Morrison and Mark Salling are so hawt. ...  ::)

Jane Lynch is doing a fabulous job as Sue Sylvester, though I have to admit that I quickly get bored and depressed with characters as relentlessly mean spirited as Sue. I know that's the point of her character, but I still get over characters like that very quickly.

Lea Michele must also be doing a great job as Rachel because on average of once an episode I want to slap Rachel, she annoys me so much.  :laugh:
