Glee?

I loved Kurt's version. Took a upbeat "teenage love" song from the Sixties and gave it a whole new meaning, full of sadness and pain. And, unfortunately, like Beto, having lost my father to cancer, resonates personally.
I think it's the same version of the song used in the movie "Across the Universe" in the movie it was Evan Rachel Woods singing.

I found that episode difficult to watch. Heavy stuff. And, like you and Beto, I have lost both of my parents to cancer. I hate cancer.

But I love Glee!

Ditto. It's beyond horrific watching someone that helped bring you into the world deteriorate before your eyes. I really do hate cancer.

I *heart* Glee! I didn't know about my passion for musical theater until very late in my life but I'm glad to have it and this show feeds it!

"Jumped the Shark ???"

What do you think? Some so-called pundits think that Glee might have "jumped the shark". The reason: lots of high-profile cameos and bigger-than-ever production numbers.

On the other hand, Glee bucked conventional wisdom (and pulled through) with Season One's "The Kiss" finale...

The show's wildly uneven but when it hits one out of the park it gets back on track. I watch every week with my gf and don't think it's jumped the shark yet.

Beto, yeah. I love the show. Unlike so-called "reality TV", it actually takes effort and talent and inspiration to make an episode of Glee!

:cheers:

Recently, Heather Morris was chosen as one of television's great current scene-stealers--making the best of every opportunity that she's been given on Glee...

All the more impressive when you consider that she was initially cast as a dancer who wasn't going to have any lines.

I am so hooked on this show thanks to my roommate. I didn't think I was going to like it, but after watching the first season on DVD I can't wait to see more!! :D

Heather Morris (Brittany on "Glee")

Is she Brittany? She is funny and a fantastic dancer!
Yes, chachachacat! She is considered one of TV's current great scene-stealers--making so much of her opportunities on screen. As far as being a great dancer, some IMDB trivia gives some insight into that:

Heather Morris (who had been a back-up dancer for Beyoncé Knowles' tour) was hired to play the character of Brittany after she was first called in by show choreographer Zack Woodlee to teach the "Single Ladies" dance to the cast.

I don't normally watch the show. I tuned in last night because Gweneth Paltrow was on. She played the Sex Ed Teacher. I thought she did a great job. I really enjoyed her singing !
