Drinking problems are beginning to sweep McKinley High, and this became the focus of Glee’s “Blame It On Alcohol” episode. Principal Figgins (Iqbal Thera) asked club coach Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) to have his kids perform a number “highlighting the dangers of teenage drinking” at an upcoming assembly.
As it just so happens, Rachel Berry’s two gay dads are on the Rosie O’Donnell cruise, leaving her alone in the house for the interim. Puck (Mark Salling) approached her about having a party, but she initially rejected the idea. It wasn’t until she shared her truly terrible original song, “My Headband,” with Finn (Cory Monteith) that she was willing to consider the idea.
At Finn’s advice, Rachel (Lea Michele) decided to go ahead and throw the party anyway. Horrible idea. But, at least it led into the best cell phone scene ever, which you can watch in the video above (“Noah, it’s Santitany and Artcedes, can your friend score some wine coolers?”).
William McKinley High was decked out in its holiday best for “A Very Glee Christmas,” but Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) didn’t have a lot to feel cheerful about. Emma (Jayma Mays) is married, and even her invitation to the Christmas party she’s having with her new husband felt like an insult. We discovered near the top of the episode that Brittany (Heather Morris) still believes in Santa Claus. Artie (Kevin McHale) became determined at once to preserve her childlike illusion … at all costs.
This all led into a fantastic scene featuring “The Most Wonderful Day of the Year,” in which all the Glee kids decorated a festive tree … though the ornaments, fake gifts and even the tree were either stolen or found. Will Schuester couldn’t allow them to keep their pilfered holiday items, of course.
New Directions wasn’t feeling a lot of holiday cheer, either … mainly, because the football team learned how to turn slushies green using food coloring. Mr. Schue came up with the abysmally bad idea to take the club around to carol from class to class. It was a debacle, of course, though there was nothing wrong with Mercedes (Amber Riley) and her beautiful rendition of “We Need a Little Christmas.”
But green slushies and stolen Christmas ornaments are nothing compared to the pain that Rachel (Lea Michele) is feeling. Despite her very best efforts, ex-boyfriend Finn (Cory Monteith) continues to shun her … yes, even after hearing her perform “Last Christmas.” When she mournfully performed “Merry Christmas, Darling,” Puckleberry fanatics all over the country became Finchel converts.
Glee’s “Special Education” episode kicked off right away -- no time for a recap in this drama-packed installment. Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) presented Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays) with tickets to the upcoming Sectionals event … but she wasn’t really feeling it. She advised Will not to ignore all the rich talent he has in his New Directions club. This prompted Will to change all his Sectionals plans … and Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) didn’t take it very well.
Will’s decision to feature Brittany (Heather Morris) and Mike (Harry Shum, Jr.) in a dance number, and Quinn (Dianna Agron) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) in a solo didn’t upset Rachel alone. Finn Hudson (Cory Montieth) quickly incurred the wrath of Santana (Naya Rivera), who let the beans spill that she and Finn had a liaison last year … which Finn subsequently lied about to Rachel.
We’re hearing exciting rumors about the Super Bowl episode of Glee, and we’ll give you a hint: it involves a musical icon and a huge dance number.

Tuesday night’s “Grilled Cheesus” episode of Glee delivered up the usual laughs, gave us plenty of new Sue Sylvester quotations to bat around and filled millions of households with beautiful singing—but the show went a little deeper than its usual quips, jokes and jaw-dropping solos.
“Grilled Cheesus” tackled some truly heady subject matter: life, death and spirituality. It’s a lot to take in on a Tuesday.
In-between funny one-liners from Heather Morris as Brittany S. Pearce (“I got dropped one whole letter grade because I wrote it in crayon”) and lots of amusement at poor Finn’s expense, Glee explored different world religions - albeit shallowly. But what do you expect from an hour-long show that’s peppered with no less than seven different musical numbers? Keep reading to get the full recap - but only if you’ve seen the episode already!

“I said, ‘Yeah, go ahead, use my stuff,’” Billy Joel recently told Access Hollywood. The Piano Man released his songs to Glee for use on the popular series, which has made many songs famous again. “I was in a chorus when I was in high school, why not?” He said.
Joel’s signature song “Piano Man” was crooned on-screen by guest star Neil Patrick Harris during last season’s “Dream On” episode, and there’s good reason to suspect that fans will be treated to more Joel in the future. However, Billy Joel doesn’t plan on doing a Britney Spears - he won’t be making a guest appearance on the series. “I’m just not a big TV actor type of guy,” he explained. “I’m a piano player.”

When you think about it, Glee shouldn’t work. It’s a comedic musical television series (what?) featuring a bunch of
previously unknown actors and actresses from far-flung places like Broadway. With all the song numbers, dance numbers and witty one-liners, fans get a lot of laughs - but the show also, at times, gives views tears. So what makes this series so special?
Matthew Morrison, who plays inspirational glee club coach Will Schuester, expressed it beautifully in a recent interview. When asked about the series and its phenomenal appeal, Morrison said “music is the language that everyone speaks.”

Months after announcing a Glee reality show which would depict the search for contestants on the series, FOX has released a new announcement saying the project has been nixed. Series creator Ryan Murphy doesn’t want to spread himself too thin, so he’ll continue to keep the bulk of his focus on Glee.
When the announcement for the Glee-centric reality series was made, would-be contestants were asked to post videos on MySpace. The show would detail the search to fill three roles on the series from a pool of contestants selected by the free-for-all submissions. Great idea, right? So, why is the whole thing in the can now?
