Glee Creator Defends Discusses The Finale - And Season Three


We won't lie to you - we had our issues with the season finale of Glee. Don't get us wrong, there were some wonderful, memorable show moments, but if we're being honest, we felt like the whole episode was rushed, with some story lines too easily wrapped up and others left out to dry with no indication of a resolution.

That's why we were pleased to hear from Brad Falchuck, one of the creators of the show and the writer/director of the episode, who explained in more detail how the episode was constructed and why certain plots played out like they did. He reveals that the episode - which coincidentally was 20 minutes longer in the director's cut (DVD EXTRA PLEASE!!!!) - is just the starting point to next season, which he's promising will be the "best season yet." But first, the finale…

Ok, huge qualm #1 - Quinn cutting her hair. We were under the assumption going into the episode that she had some diabolical, Sue Sylvester-esque scheme to sabotage the team's chances at winning Nationals, thus setting her up to be the baddie for next season (and giving her character some development.) So…why didn't that happen? Brad suggests we were looking at it all wrong. He explains:

"[Her anger over her breakup with Finn] was all in her hair, man. It really was. All the bad juju was in her hair and she cut it all off and everything got better. It wasn’t that she got over it all but I think she’s just grown up. Every culture has a ritual like that where you make some sort of physical change and it transforms you inside too."

Ummm, okay. If you say so! (We like our scenario better.)

Brad then went on to talk about why the kids lost at Nationals, and this explanation we liked and agreed with. He explained:

"Yeah. They’re not ready yet. I think there’s something about them winning that deflates things oddly. We knew what was going to happen. It’s not even that they lost but they didn’t even make that top 10. That’s how unprepared they were. That’s how unfocused they were. I kinda liked that. To me, if they make it to the top 10 after they’re so clearly not focused, they’re clearly not invested because they all have other things going on — it would have been a little disingenuous."

Agreed! When you're traveling to a national competition and you wait to write your songs until the day before, you deserve to lose. It's like a kid getting a 200 on their SATs and saying, "But wait! I took a practice test on the way over!" Please!

While getting some clarification on the finale was great, what we found more interesting was Brad's thoughts on season three and who may or may not make it to season four. Click the jump to check out some HIGHlights from the rest of his interview to see what we mean:

Blacklisted Glee Extra Does Damage Control!

Filed under: TV NewsWacky, Tacky & TrueTwitterGlee


Last week, we dropped a pretty HUGE Glee spoiler regarding the identity of this year's McKinley High Prom King and Queen, which was apparently leaked by an extra on the set named Nicole Crowther, and caused the series' co-creator, Brad Falchuk, to flip out via Twitter and essentially tell her that she would never work in this town again!

Well now, the squealer has come forward to not only claim that she hasn't been on the set of the show since October and she heard the info from a friend at a dinner party, but that she is also looking into legal options because she thinks that she's been blacklisted in the industry!

She explains:

"I didn't even know if the girl I heard it from was joking or telling the truth. I was not an extra for that scene and haven't been an extra on the show since Oct. 2010. I didn't violate any code of ethics or violate a contract. I have been on the set of many shows and have never, and would never, give away any information…And I am truly sorry for any trouble I have caused. But that was never what I intended. I wanted to be just another speculator weighing in. Mr. Falchuk publicly humiliated me and has made it clear that he never wants me to work again in Hollywood."

Sounds like she really had no idea what kind of controversy was coming her way with those Tweets!

Which makes sense to us! It is, ultimately, only a TV show - a TV show with a whole 'lotta crazy ass fans who take it deathly seriously!

However, we wouldn't want to see anyone's potential career taking such a tumble over something this silly, so hopefully this whole mess will blow over and the Gleeks of the world will let the spoilage of a fictional, on-screen Prom King and Queen go!

What do U think?? Should the extra still be held accountable?

Glee Extra Drops MAJOR Glee Spoiler Bomb!

Filed under: TwitterGlee


Drama, drama, drama.

We love our Glee spoilers as much as the next Gleek, but we also appreciate that there are some things kept from us so we can be surprised when an episode does air (albeit never like these Gleeks!) That's why we're kind of bummed to report that we know who wins Prom King and Queen on the highly anticipated prom episode and we're going to share this tibit with you now, should you want to know.

However, you should know that this information was passed along by a source who has since infuriated the creators of the hit show, including Brad Falchuk, who publicly lashed out at the squealer on Twitter for opening her big mouth. The source, an extra who frequently worked on the show and sure as hell will never work there again, posted the spoiler on Twitter for all her Gleeky followers to see Saturday night…and the mayhem went from there.

Want to know which lucky duo will be crowned in a few weeks? If so, read on. If not, SPOILER ALERT, DO NOT READ ON!

On her Twitter, Nicole Crowther posted this tweet in response to the question "who will be named prom king and queen?" :

"K is PQ and Ka is PK."

Translation: Kurt, played by Chris Colfer, is prom queen and Karofsky, played by Max Adler, is prom king.

Let that sit for a moment. Think about the ramifications of making such a choice…Now read what Brad Falchuk wrote back to her in response to the leak:

"hope you're qualified to do something besides work in entertainment…Who are you to spoil something talented people have spent months to create?"

Someone with the power to use Twitter - and that's about it.

Thoughts, Gleeks? Are U happy that you know or do you wish you had been surprised by this?

Filed under: TV NewsGlee

jessica lange returns for new pilot

Been a REALLY long time!

Last we heard from Jessica Lange, she starred in the HBO biopic Grey Gardens.

Now, she's returning to TV in Glee creator Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's FX pilot entitled American Horror Story.

No word yet on the show's premise, but thus far we know that the main characters are a sensitive therapist named Ben Harmon and his "gorgeous wife who is a force to be reckoned with," named Vivien Harmon.

Jessica Lange will play the couple's "nosy neighbor," and her character will be expanded into a third lead role.

Production is set to begin later this month, with Murphy as director.

Good to have you back, Jessica! We wish you all the best with this new pilot. You're DEF in good company with Ryan Murphy!

Are U excited to see Jessica Lange acting again?

Glee + Britney + Michael Jackson???


Okay, so get ready for all the spoiler goodies….

The following is a collection of information that heavily supports some not-so-wild speculation and spoilers for the most highly anticipated episode of Glee next season.

Take a look at the two photos above. The first comes to us from the lovely photogs camped out at Paramount Studios, where Glee is currently taping. The second comes to us from that delectable gleek Cory Monteith via his Twitter.

The guy in the chair is Brad Falchuk, one of the executive producers and directors of the show. Just beyond his face, you can see our beloved Princess Lea Michele strutting her midriff stuff in front of some bleachers. Take a look at the screens in front of Brad, which show three different angles of Lea in front of these bleachers.

Now, look at that photog picture again. Really let the outfit sink into your brain. Have you figure it out? She's going to be singing Hit Me Baby One More Time!

Hell yes!!!

We knew they couldn't skip the number that made Britney Spears a household name, but we're thrilled that it's Lea that gets to do it!

And in other Gleeky news, Ryan Seacrest had Adam Shankman on his radio show this morning. After the interview, Ryan tweeted that Adam gave him a very "heavy hint" that he could be directing the Glee tribute episode to Michael Jackson!

Inevitable, to be sure, but we didn't think they would throw all these tribute episodes in one season.

Britney, Rocky Horror, MJ…. EPIC!!!!

U gleeks must be starting to get really pumped!!!

Ryan Murphy Is Our Hero!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationDustin Lance BlackGleeLGBT


Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, has already written an open letter discussing the vicious and homophobic article in Newsweek magazine that asserted that gay actors are incapable of successfully portraying a heterosexual character.

He has just released a second follow-up letter, and basically proves what a decent, stand-up guy he is!

He writes:

I want to issue a personal thank you to GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios, writer/director Dustin Lance Black and countless others who have joined me in condemning Newsweek magazine and asking for an apology for their recent article ‘Straight Jacket,’ a hurtful bigoted diatribe in which they basically asserted that gay actors should not play straight roles because they are not “believable.” So far, Newsweek magazine has declined to issue an apology, other than to say they are big fans of the show I co-created, Glee — even the straight dudes around the Newsweek offices. I say thanks for your support, however glib, and continue — with many others offended by the article — to wait for a more substantial articulate response.

But in better more constructive news: Ramin Setoodeh, the author of the article, reached out to me today and accepted my offer to sit with myself and the writers of GleeBrad Falchuk and Ian Brennan — to discuss not only why we found the piece so offensive, but also to observe our creative process and see how we construct a TV show dedicated exclusively to the idea of inclusiveness and acceptance for all — ideas solely absent in his ‘Straight Jacket’ article.

Along with inviting him into our Glee writers room, I will also let him observe our casting process…so he can witness first hand — and speak to — actors who audition for our show and who are already series regulars — actors who are encouraged to read for ALL roles, no matter what their sexual orientation, color or gender. Who cares who you are or who you sleep with — men, women, sheep — frankly, it’s none of our business or concern. The actor with the best audition should get the part. On Glee, straight actors play gay roles, gay actors play straight roles and no one is discriminated against. I hope observing this process firsthand — and talking with our cast — will be illuminating to Mr. Setoodeh, and inform his future journalistic endeavors.

In my telephone conversation with him, Mr. Setoodeh mentioned how he feels cornered, misunderstood and unfairly attacked. I look forward to hearing his reasons for writing the article, and will of course listen with an open heart and mind. Vicious anonymous attacks — which Mr. Setoodeh feels he has been subjected to over the past two days — aren’t cool or acceptable, and get us no where. What DOES move the ball forward is education and a fair and open dialogue, and I want Mr. Setoodeh to know that all of us at Glee are committed to that, and encourage it.


What an unbelievably smart and fair plan of attack!

We applaud you for keeping your cool and standing your ground, Ryan and company!

Hopefully, the other parties involved will follow suit and treat you with the same respect and openness you have given them!

Equality for ALL!
