Glee Gets SERIOUS In Shooting Star! WATCH All The Performances From Last Night's Episode HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinutePerezTVGlee

We've NEVER been so anxious while watching an episode of Glee than we were during last night's harrowing depiction of a potential school shooting in Shooting Star

And because the subject matter WAS extremely serious, showrunner Ryan Murphy obviously had to handle it delicately so that it did NOT seem like he was trivializing a complex, sensitive subject, which is probably why he decided to include very few musical numbers.

The performances that DID make the cut were emotional, yet simply orchestrated, and they provided a much needed break from the consistent tension.

Ch-ch-check out the Gleeks singing Stay (above)!

Then, watch as Ryder attempts to seduce his online fantasy girl with Elton John's romantic classic Your Song and try to stem the tears while Brittany and the members of New Directions serenade Lord Tubbington with More Than Words …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Every Glee-Tail: Say What You Need To Say (Just Don't Say Jane Lynch Is Leaving For Good)

Filed under: TV NewsSad SadGleeJane LynchHeather MorrisRyan Murphy

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FROM LAST NIGHT’S IMPORTANT EPISODE OF GLEE. DON’T READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET.

It’s hard to know where to begin…

For those who were expecting last night’s Glee to take an after school special approach to the very serious topic of school shootings, they were met with nearly ten solid minutes of the most harrowing and tension filled moments of the series. The show isn't the first teen dramedy to try it's hand at capturing the horror faced by students and faculty when faced with such terrifying circumstances — One Tree Hill, anyone? — but considering the episodes proximity to the tragedy at Sandy Hook, the situation hit very close to home. (Too close to home for parents in the small Connecticut town, as we reported earlier.)

But if we may say so, we thought the episode, while emotionally charged and frightfully dramatic, never stepped over the bounds of gratuitously exploiting the circumstances. Truly, we thought the storyline was handled tastefully, and just perhaps, it opened up a difficult dialogue for parents and teachers to have with their kids.

So, what exactly was the storyline? Well, as the kids all convene in their beloved Choir room for a seemingly uneventful day of singing and laughter, two shots

Glee's School Shooting Episode Upset Parents In Newtown, CT!

Filed under: TV NewsSad SadGleeRyan Murphy

glee shooting star newtown

During last night's Glee titled Shooting Star, showrunner Ryan Murphy and his fellow gleeks dealt with an extremely sensitive, disturbing subject barely 4 months after the unspeakably awful incident occured at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT.

And unsurprisingly, some in the Newtown community are upset; not so much by the way Glee handled the idea of a school shooting, but because no one from the show reached out to anyone in Newtown to provide some sort of warning or framework of how best to deal with the episode while watching it with their kids.

Parent Andrew Paley expressed:

Fresh Prince Theme Song Confused For School Shooting Threat! Entire Pennsylvania Town Goes Into Lockdown!

Filed under: Music MinuteOops!Will SmithViolenceScary!School

WOW! Talk about an OOPSIE DAISY!

But hey! At least we now know the town of Ambridge, Pennsylvania hosts a community full of incredibly fast-moving, vigilant individuals!

Even if they all have somehow been under a rock for the past 20-something years!

Confused?! Allow us to explain:

Apparently, the town's High School had one serious scare earlier in the week after a student's cell phone's voicemail, which featured him rapping a few lines of the now-iconic Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song, was confused by a medical receptionist calling to confirm an optometrist appointment to be a THREAT to shoot down the entire student body…and resulted in a mass lock-down of the district and set police into a FRENZY!
