I didn't expect this episode to live up to the standard set by last week's. I was hoping, however, for a little consistency of style and tone, some more cohesive use of the themes raised last week and throughout the season.
Then I remembered: It's Glee. Roll with it. So we'll roll, from the cartoon-violence, unrealistic “Sue for Congress” campaign ads and developments, to the set-to-music dodgeball war, to the ongoing tragedy of Blaine Anderson's short pants, all the way to the not-so-cartoonish-anymore final few minutes of "Mash-Off."
The first thing we learn is that the Lion King Puck-fassa has been caged. He's hot for teacher. He sings about it. I couldn't bear to watch. I'm sure there is some kind of Pucklby fandom where you can watch the clip if you missed it.
When Puck Halen performs for the rest of the New Directions, Rachel wonders if "Hot For Teacher" is appropriate. »

Fox Scene from “Mash Off,” an episode of “Glee.”
Wow, that was a huge slap heard ’round the world, because wake up, fans, that “Mash Off” episode was one of the best ones yet. It left you hanging for more.
Tight character story lines, well sung songs, and extremely intricate choreography made this a knockout. (And no, that’s not a dodgeball term.) The mash-up episodes every season can be hit or miss, but this year was perfected to the nth degree. »

It began with a Van Halen tribute and ended (in grand soap-opera tradition) with a dramatic face-slap. But perhaps most important of all, this week’s installment of Glee contained a couple of truly memorable musical moments that helped raise an important question: Why can’t Ryan Murphy & Co. give us all mashups, all the time?
And while it wasn’t as epic as “The First Time,” it’s safe to say that “Mash Off” did its part to contribute to the overall impression of a revitalized Glee in Season 3. Of course, if you were busy contemplating the musical attributes »

Are two songs better than one?
In tonight’s episode of “Glee,” the show will feature some mashups of popular songs. The tracks include “You And I”/ “You And I” (Lady Gaga/Eddie Rabbit & Crystal Gayle); “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)”/”You Make My Dreams” (both by Hall & Oates); and “Rumour Has It”/ “Someone Like You” (both by Adele).
Are the combined songs better than the originals? »

Happy 32nd Birthday to out singer/songwriter Matt Morris! Did you know that Matt's dad is 80's country superstar Gary Morris? And that Gary had the first hit version of "Wind Beneath My Wings" back in 1983? And Gary and Crystal Gayle sang the theme to the soap Another World? And Gary starred in The Colbys as a blind singer signed to Dominique Deveraux's record label? Well, now you do. Speaking of singers surrounded by drama, Whitney Houston has voluntarily checked herself back into rehab. While Whitney is recovering, her classic "I Have Nothing" is in good hands, thanks to 14-year-old Jack Vidgen on Australia's Got Talent. (h/t Crawfish Po Boy). In ratings news, last night's Brothers & Sisters season finale was up 25%, while Celebrity Apprentice was down 23%. Sometimes there is justice in the world. Below you can see the latest webisode of Save the Date, the companion series to Setup Squad. »
Regardless of their cooking abilities, there are some movie characters whose dinner invitations you should definitely turn down. Here are 12 prime examples…
I don't go out much, me, what with watching as many films as I do, as well as having a complete lack of anything resembling a social life.
However, I sometimes compensate for this by imagining all sorts of dazzling social occasions I could attend with my friends from the movies. You know, my real friends, the ones who I talk to under my Clone Wars duvet at night when I'm not scribbling poems for Carrie Fisher in purple crayon.
Being a healthy lad who likes his food, I often imagine these scenarios playing out in some fancy West End restaurant. However, as I lay there one night, imagining an evening at Le Gavroche with Jason Voorhees and Mrs Bates, I thought to myself, "Hang on, I probably »
