Filled With Glee
Thank you, thank you, thank you for highlighting the best new show of the fall season! It’s deliciously different from anything else on TV. By the way, Rachel isn’t the only girl who’s crushing on Will. I hope to hear more about the multitalented Matthew Morrison.
I was so excited to open my mailbox and see Glee on the cover. This show is brilliant. It’s given me a reason to look forward to Wednesday nights again since the cancellation of Pushing Daisies. Kudos to Fox for taking the risk on it. Thank God it’s not another reality show.

I loved the article on Glee. But I think you may have been remiss in not mentioning Mark Salling, who is becoming a breakout actor with his portrayal of Noah ”Puck” Puckerman. He has given what could have been a one-dimensional, unlikable character great depth. While much of this has to do with the show’s fantastic writing, I think Mark needs to get some credit too. And let’s face it, he isn’t too bad to look at, either!
I occasionally get frustrated when you highlight the same shows repeatedly (Lost, anyone?). Glee has so much heart, it has revitalized my love for TV.
Your Must List included It’s Garry Shandling’s Show DVDs. But for our hearing-disabled family, they are on the Can’t List. We can’t watch them because they are neither closed-captioned nor subtitled.
Diet, You’ll Like It
Loved Stephen King’s column on diet secrets. Will commence shaking all my sweets immediately. A trick I learned from my father: Eat Entenmann’s cookies without opening the tab, just by slipping the cookies through the side opening by hand. The box was never officially opened, so the cookies had no calories!

Uncle Stevie’s right. Smack the snack notwithstanding, eating two-thirds and tossing the rest is better than consuming it all, and any movement is better than no movement at all. Just be careful when doing that electric slide.
Laurence Fishburne has always been one of my favorites. I just wish you had mentioned his role in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 (where he was billed as Larry Fishburne). Coincidence that the best Freddy movie included Fishburne? I think not.
I was excited to see the article celebrating Say Anything. Ironically, the next song on the radio was ”In Your Eyes.” It was perfect.
Thank you so much for showcasing Say Anything. After 20 years, the film is still golden. John Cusack’s character, Lloyd Dobler, falls in love — and then says ”I love you” — in such a winning way. He’s been my role model.
