Wow! It really seems as though the show has found a balance and hit its stride again!

We couldn't be more pleased! Especially after the disaster that was last season!

Glee cast members Harry Shum Jr. and Jenna Ushkowitz recently opened up about the newly-revitalized season three of the smash series, and have revealed that not only are they happy to be receiving actual storylines this year - due to Ryan Murphy finally hiring a writing staff that can give the show some much-needed structure and character arcs - but that the cast is now not being grossly overworked with a non-stop production schedule!

Harry explains:

"Honestly, [Murphy] has really spread [filming] out so people do have like one or two days off, which never happened last year. It's been great on set. What's really been different in the new episodes is the storylines are really investing in these characters. We're not just sitting in the choir room and delivering lines. There's a lot of character work and it makes the days go faster. Even if you do have a 12-hour day, it's fine because it feels like it's going faster."

And Jenna elaborates:

"It's back to basics. We definitely feel that. It's definitely about the characters. I mean, there are bell and whistles but it's a lot more about how the characters are feeling emotionally and their journey. We had four weeks off [before season three]. Spending that much time together through season two through the tour, it gets hard. But now, you get a minute to be yourself and come back and be like, Oh, my God—my best friends!"

Phew! Finally!

We don't want to jump to conclusions, as only one episode has aired, but we really have high hopes for this season! Hopefully they can keep it going strong! It's amazing what a little depth and character consistency can do, right?

Just keep in mind, an appreciated cast is a happy cast! And a happy cast means good, enthusiastic performances!

Keep up the good work, guys!

    Are you going to report the 32% drop from the season 2 premiere.



  2. 2

    Really, I thought you liked this show. How can you say that season 2 was a "disaster"? So it's been on for 2 seasons and one of them sucked? and after 1 episode it's back on track? I hope whoever wrote this knows its really really stupid. See I love the show, so if you asked me I would say season 2 was much better then season 1. I really don't know what your fucking complaint would even be…

    i liked season 2 loads, i thought the 1st episode of season 3 was slow…really slow

    How can you say season two was a disaster when you RAVED about every episode?

    Re: ryan005 – Exactly! When did you EVER say (during last season) that it was a disaster? Are you f*()*n kidding me? You have your head so far up Ryan Murphy's ass your face shows up on the monitor when RM is getting a colonoscopy.

    Re: Jlbfly – Actually he he said that he thought it wasn't great a good few times

    Unfortunately, it no longer feels real that they would do such a great number in the cafeteria and everyone would still say they suck. There are too many reality shows out about how popular real Glee kids are and how hard it is to get into many glee clubs. So the whole Loser premise just doesn't work for me anymore, at all. I think I'm done with the show. And enough with what's her name's virginity already.
