Just the worst! Although now I know what "fongool" means.

isn't every episode of Glee poorly done??
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

Criss and Rivera are way too talented for this show, though heaven knows they well deserve the money, fame and praise they're getting.

HOLY SHIT GET OFF THIS BOARD EVERYBODY HATES GLEE.
What a colossal piece of crap! It'll probably run for years.

You needed Glee to tell you what Fongool meant?
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

No but I didn't know it basically meant "f*ck you" until looking it but after it was edited out.

I actually thought it was well done. I agree that Criss and Rivera are beyond talented. She did an interview a llllloonnnggggg time ago that she basically said if ITH ever gets made into a movie, she'll fight her way into that cast.

I liked it. Rivera was great, Criss just makes me cringe, is he 30?
The two new kids who played Sandy and Danny are terrific.
She has a great voice (on TV).
The show is very different this season Goldie's daughter is so strange on this show.
What's up with Sue's baby?

Sues baby has Downs Syndrome, like her sister had.

I liked the episode, but the only thing that really bugged me, was how the show was was put on in a week. I shouldnt expect anything else from Glee though.... This season is way better than it has been in a long time.

I haven't seen this ep but I was bummed that last week they used a song from the movie in the lead up to the play

Did they use any of the movie songs last night? It will piss me off like how they used the co-ed movie version of America when they did West Side Story

The newest revival used Hopelessly... as well, so it's not as bad as the co-ed America.

I am here, and I like Glee, so everybody here hates Glee is not a correct statement.

As an Italian... "fongool" doesn't actually mean "**** you," though it is definitely used in that way. It means "your ass." More specifically, when used as "bah fongool," it means "up your ass," essentially "up yours." Very few people know that, and common usage has kind of devalued that.

Also, I think people missed aasjb4ever's sarcasm completely. Maybe that's just how I read it, though.

Continue on with your thread.

The songs they used on this episode wre all from the show.
