Did You Know?


Will mentions that Quinn found out the sex of the baby at her 10 weeks appointment. Mom's can't find out the gender until around the 5th month of pregnancy. See more »


Quinn and Finn attend a doctor's appointment regarding Quinn's pregnancy. She is said to be at 10 weeks, and yet the doctor can tell through a routine ultrasound that the sex of the baby is female. It is virtually impossible to tell the gender at 10 weeks, since the genitals don't even begin to form until week 14 at the earliest. See more »

"Throwdown" continues the fun of the program that is "Glee"
6 October 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

All right, I'm catching up on "Glee" eps from last season. In this one, with Will and Sue becoming co-directors of the glee club, Sue divides the group by putting the minorities on her side. A bespectacled student who has a crush on Rachel threatens to expose Quinn's pregnancy unless Rachel gives her underwear to him and Terri and her sister blackmails their baby doctor to fake Terri's baby sonogram for her husband...While I was never crazy about Terri's fake pregnancy, the doctor here provided some needed humor about the whole thing the way he fools Will about it though seeing him react being touched whether it becomes a girl or boy is a little too heartbreaking knowing how it will end. Sue, as always, provides her own hilarious take on certain things. And it's a lot of fun to see all the young singers performing here. So on that note, Throwdown is another very enjoyable episode of "Glee". Now I'm gonna watch the next one...
