Lea Michele apparently was prone to flipping the chair backwards and hitting her head. Amber Riley at one point caught the edge of ramp and fell off completely. See more »


In the scene where Kurt is rehearsing alone, attempting to sing a "high F", the notes he sings are not the same as those he plays on the piano. By the time he presses the "F" key on the piano, his voice is actually one and a half to two whole steps above the "F". See more »

The Little Red Riding Hood of Glee
12 November 2009 | by (Montgomery, AL) – See all my reviews

"Wheels" is all about character development. We see the more caring side of Sue, we grow to hate Quinn a little more, we learn a revelation about Tina, we sympathize more with Puck and Artie, and we fall ever so deeper in love with Kurt. Everything about this episode was pitch- perfect. Music was as fantastic as ever, especially Artie's rendition of Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself". Rachel and Kurt's version of "Defying Gravity" from Wicked is both breath-taking and moving. Although we only get to hear their solo's and not their duet version heard on the Glee Album. The Cheerio, Britanny, is much more involved than usual and is a hoot to watch. The new character, Becky, is beautifully acted and one of the best additions to the show since Kurt's dad. Now that everything has been set into motion, it's time to watch it all unfold over the next few episodes. Glee has gloriously returned with the best episode of the season yet!
