Trivia

For their performance ("My Life Would Suck Without You") for Mr. Schuster, they incorporated choreography bits of quite a few of their past performances: the line dance from Kristin Chenowith's episode, the guys sitting on the stage from their "Confessions/It's My Life" mashup etc. See more »

Goofs

When she is accused by Will Schuester of leaking the set list to the other schools, Sue Sylvester says that the accusation is a "libelous statement". Libel is written, slander is spoken; the correct term would be that it is a "slanderous statement". See more »

Quotes

Principal Figgins: Sue, the directors both from the Jane Adams Academy and Haverbrook School for the Deaf have informed me you gave them the New Directions set list.
Sue Sylvester: You have no proof.
Principal Figgins: The set lists were on Cheerios letterhead.
Sue Sylvester: I didn't do it.
Principal Figgins: They say "From the Desk of Sue Sylvester'.
Sue Sylvester: Circumstantial evidence.
Principal Figgins: They're written in your handwriting.
Sue Sylvester: Forgeries.
Principal Figgins: Sue there is an orgy of evidence stacked against you!

Shadow
8 January 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

10/10? Meaning this is the best there *can possibly be*? On basis of what? Make no mistake, this is a great episode, but it's far from *perfect*. Too many IMDb users write reviews from *highly* subjective viewpoint, and while they are useful in telling the average reader, what the reviewer likes, they could be more than plot summaries (there is a different update section for that) topped of with a few gushing praises.

So, in a nutshell: great plot and character development, good acting, laughs and drama, *but* Glee's main problem remains: the playback/attempts at lip sync performances are so out of sync it's *distracting*. The singers clearly are talented - why isn't there anyone on the production side making sure the vocals match the lip movements? If bands can put out live recordings with 100% audio/video sync, why can't Glee do it? Until then, we get just a shadow of Glee's full potential, "only" 8/10 at best - like this episode.
