Second episode of "Glee", Showmance, wasn't as good as the pilot but there's still room for improvement
23 September 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is the second episode of "Glee" that aired several months after the pilot appeared after "American Idol" last May. This one has a different tone than the one before. Like the music performances having more of a professional lip-sync feel that almost becomes distractingly fake-like. Plenty of funny lines from Jane Lynch as the mean cheerleading coach though does she have to be so one-dimensional? And Jessalyn Gilsig's ambitious wife character does really irritate especially after we found out she's not pregnant (she only thought she was) and she keeps on pretending for her husband. I did like the near romantic passions between Finn and Rachel and the glee club teacher and the guidance counselor played by Jayma Mays who I first saw in the first season of "Heroes". And that last number by Rachel was also good. And the high school coach that seemed to harass Emma wasn't so mean this time. And how about Rachel's discussion of how girls also want sex during the celibacy meeting. Oh, and the first song that the teacher refers to as "Freak Out" was actually called "Le Freak" when I first heard it in 1978. All in all, Showmance wasn't as good as the pilot but there's always room for improvement...
