Glee-Cap: The Back-Up Plan.
by Robert Lawlor - Apr 29, 2014

I'm going to be real honest with you, Gleeks - I'm not quite sure what to say to intro this week's recap - I could reference "Only A Older Woman" from Boy from Oz because of Shirley MacLaine being involved in helping make Mr. Blaine Warbler into a star, but how many of you would get that reference? So, let's just get on with the show and see where the stars take us, shall we? Now, quiet please, there's a lady up there. Yes, another Boy from Oz reference - look it up, especially given Hugh Jackman is our Tony 2014 host! Rachel is soaking in the stardom of being a Broadway diva - autographs, photos, rumors of a Tony nomination. Rachel has signed with a fancy high power agent who doesn't seem to think that Rachel has much of a future beyond Fanny, leaving the Broadway diva shocked. Kurt informs Blaine that a wealthy socialite (Shirley MacLaine) is coming, and he's been picked to perform for her - and he's recruiting his fiance to join him in singing "Story of My Life" by One Direction. Santana and Mercedes chat as Mercedes laments about how her record company doesn't hear her sound, while Santana laments having no real direction, thus prompting Mercedes to ask Santana to help her with her music - channel the power of "River Deep, Mountain High" y'all. Rachel goes about her Broadway schedule, while performing "Wake Me Up" by Avicii as she ponders her future beyond Fanny, which seems empty. After the show, Rachel is approached by someone from FOX about auditioning for a pilot for them, but the audition is happening at the same time as a performance, leaving our Broadway diva with a big dilemma. ..Does this diva need her stage or is she seeing the glitz and glamour of Hollywood?

Glee-Cap: Opening Night.
by Robert Lawlor - Apr 22, 2014

Curtain up, light the lights - it's opening night of Funny Girl and Rachel Berry is going out there a Broadway wannabe, and coming back - well, the greatest star, darling. Before we dive into an evening straight out of season one of Smash - (RIP Ivy Lynn) - let's have a round of applause for the one and only, Matt Tamanini for stepping in like a chorus girl getting to go on for the lead role for the first time last week! So, without further ado, let's get this show on the road - it's Broadway or Bust for Ms. Berry! Rachel gets a blast from the past in a dream where she is back at McKinley performing "LoveFool" by the Cardigans to an audience made up of flashbacks of her friends, as well as bored beyond all reason Becky, Karofsky, Sue, and Jacob Ben Israel. Rachel awakes from her dream, completely horrified. Holy stage fright, Batman! Kurt tries to keep Rachel in check from her self doubt, putting her on a lock down from online and putting her in a love zone - only love for Ms. Berry before opening night. Back at McKinley, no that is not a typo, Sue corners Will and tries to get him to take her as his plus one to New York for Rachel's opening so that she can visit New York and to save her credibility. Will agrees to take Sue along, but only if she pays the too pregnant to attend Emma back and attends Rachel's big Broadway debut. Sue and Will get in touch with the Big Apple with a little "NYC" from Annie. (more...)

Glee-Cap: Safety First, Safety Last, Safety Always
by Matt Tamanini - Apr 16, 2014

Somehow, I think your normal GLEE-capper, Robert Lawlor, knew this was going to be a down week for GLEE when he asked me to pinch-hit for him (don't worry if you don't know what that means, it's a sports term). While I have been generally quite pleased with the majority of episodes over the last two seasons, this episode felt like a throwback to Season 2 or 3, where far too many episodes felt like simply filler. While they might have ultimately been entertaining, they primarily served as a placeholder until we got to the more plot-specific episodes. With Kurt's attack last week and Rachel's 'Funny Girl' opening a week away, this episode felt disappointingly like a very low-stakes buffer between the two. (more...)

Reliably timely, GLEE got tested - and passed with flying colors; a rainbow, no doubt. (more...)
