I love Glee! Everyone I know loves Glee! Love the choirs, the irony, the characters, and Jane Lynch. Leonard don't know Fox has good tv? (bad "news") but Rupert Murdoch is no dummy when it comes to business.

I don't know how anyone can stand that kind of plastic Glee singing!
Emptionless, screechy and boring.

I can't wait until it's out of style.

Leonard Lopate, a few weeks ago: "Does anyone actually watch Fox?"

I guess his guest host does, as do a few of his listeners.

I was wondering how long it takes to record all the musical numbers for one episode?

We HAVE to know - are the actors' singing voices their own???

Brad's facial expressions are an integral part of the ensemble acting success. His character represents US--the viewers--who can't speak, but are there with the others in spirit!
