Friday Faves:: Round Two

Well, happy Friday, friends!  If you’re here, then you’ve stumbled upon the second edition of Friday Faves, which is just like Oprah’s Favorite Things except you can’t win anything, there’s no studio audience, and I’m not Oprah.  So, actually this is nothing like Oprah’s Favorite Things. Last week, I mentioned the royal wedding of WillsContinue reading “Friday Faves:: Round Two”

Emma on “Glee” and Mentally Ill Me

In Tuesday’s extended episode (“Born This Way”), “Glee” tackled self-image, including appearance, sexual orientation, and mental illness. While this made for an interesting mish-mash of self-awareness, I found myself relating most to Emma Pillsbury, McKinley High’s neurotic guidance counselor. Since the beginning of the show, Emma’s been a bit (OK, a lot) of a “neatContinue reading “Emma on “Glee” and Mentally Ill Me”

“Glee” Goes A Little Too Wild

Like many gleeks  (“Glee” fans), I tune into the show every Tuesday night eager to hear what songs the cast will perform.  Season 2 has been a bit disappointing to me.  I mean, who thought “Britney Spears” night was a good idea?  And what’s with the pseudo-lesbian relationship between Britney and Santana? But the biggerContinue reading ““Glee” Goes A Little Too Wild”

“Glee” to add Christian Character to Show

Amidst news of Jane Lynch’s recent marriage, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy announced that a Christian character will be added to New Directions to help make the show more inclusive.  According to this article, the female character will, at first, have difficulty accepting Kurt’s homosexuality, but I am sure she will eventually come to accept himContinue reading ““Glee” to add Christian Character to Show”

Music Video:: “Total Eclipse of the Heart”–Glee Cast

Now that “Glee” has moved to Tuesday night, I’ve been able to get over that midweek hump with new zeal.  Last night’s episode featured an amazing song sequence featuring character Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) singing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” with the three “Glee” guys she’s been involved with in some way, shape, or form. Continue reading “Music Video:: “Total Eclipse of the Heart”–Glee Cast”

Amy’s Favorite Things, Vol. 2

Since Oprah dropped the ball on her favorite things this year, it looks like I’m going to have to take up the slack (incidentally, I’ll also be taking over for Oprah when the daytime talk show queen turns in her microphone).  I’m sorry I won’t be able to send Backseat Writers a crap load ofContinue reading “Amy’s Favorite Things, Vol. 2”

Fox Teases Millions with “Glee” Pilot

Like millions of Americans, I am enchanted by Fox’s newest show “Glee“.  Although, I am terribly disappointed that the network teased us with the pilot episode after the second-to-last “American Idol” this season and isn’t promising any new episodes until the Fall.  It was brilliant marketing to be sure, but definitely disappointing because I wantContinue reading “Fox Teases Millions with “Glee” Pilot”
