Honestly, I was Just Trying to Feel Something...
23 October 2011 | by abbyjo58See all my reviews

There are a number of good numbers here; the whole thing adds up to a good Halloween track, particularly the "brains" scene…a bit of Frankenstein Jr. there, nice stop gap photography. Warblers are innovative, melodic and many, yet manage to sing in unison, a lot of rehearsals went into that, it shows.

Jane's aged well from SNL to this series, reminiscent of another Jane, Jane Curtain. I can see why Carol Burnett is a fan, and I was a fan of Burnett first. Sue's the gal ya love to hate, but with original, funny lines. I'd like to see more of Iqbal Theba. All these young people have great voices and moves, particularly Kevin McHale, can we get him out of the chair? Who said show tunes have to be boring? Colfer has an amazing flexibility, Monteith is like a John Wayne meets the Beach Boys, (even in "She's Not There," a new out of body experience).

Couric, not Sawyer, why would Sawyer care about cheer-leading?? "Honestly, I was just trying to feel something." That is what teachers and students say when they get caught, isn't it? Funny how ratings work. Michael Jackson, your music lives on, baby. The show went on.
