It’s a (not so) little known fact that I love myself some Glee. I evenre-watched the pilot with my family during a recent vacation trip tothe beach; the Stacks enjoy a good musical number in between our poorattempts at tanning.
So I was beyond thrilled last week when Fox screened the next TWO(!) Gleeepisodes last week at their headquarters in New York. Here’s a littlepreview of what you all can expect in September when the show (finally)begins airing (SPOILER ALERT). The first ep back is called “Showmance,”and mainly focuses on the relationship between Rachel (Lea Michele) andFinn (Cory Montieth) — both pictured. But the highlight is a raunchy glee clubperformance of “Push It” during a school assembly; as Sandy Ryerson(Stephen Tobolowsky) said in the pilot, “It’s genius!”
Speaking of Sandy, he pops back up in the next episode, “Preggers.” Thestar of this episode though is Kurt (Chris Colfer) who does a hilariousversion of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” He also has awonderfully touching scene near the end of the episode with hisultra-butch father, played by Mike O’Malley. Oh, and there’s a majorpregnancy announcement for one of the characters and it will probablycome as a surprise.
All in all, they were really really fun episodes. The quality seen in the pilot definitely does not waver. If anything, the showseems to be finding its footing and tone.
So, PopWatchers, does this make you even more excited for Glee? Have you been re-watching the pilot?
