Glee Episode Recap: "The Purple Piano Project"

Glee is back in session!

New Directions has returned to McKinley High after a summer away and much has changed. For one, it's senior year for many — except Artie and Tina, as far as we know — so it's time for the gang to start making plans for their future. Let's take a look at their plans, based on the season premiere: read more

How Glee Boss Ryan Murphy Plans to Win You Back in Season 3

Glee

Here's what Glee boss Ryan Murphy says he likes about his new team of writers: "We hired people who will read scenes and scripts and go, 'We can do better, let's change that. Like, they'll literally say, 'You know what? We don't wanna do that with Mercedes. No one wants to f---ing see that.'"

That may sound extreme, but to help plot out what will be senior year for most of the McKinley High glee clubbers, Murphy says he specifically sought out writers with "big opinions" about the show. Why? Because the second season of Glee had been hit with its own kind of Slushee and was in need of cleaning up. read more

We've Seen the Glee Season 3 Premiere — Here's Your Spoilerpalooza!

Glee

Ryan Murphy's got a plan for Glee this year. It includes a full-time writing staff and a focus on stories over artist tributes. He even knows how it all ends for the McKinley High School seniors (though not all of the kids in New Directions are seniors.)

"The season ends with the core group, with many of them graduating and figuring out what their futures are," Murphy told reporters Thursday after a screening of the Season 3 premiere. After acknowledging that he made the mistake of prematurely talking about which actors he thought about writing out after graduation — "I've learned my lesson! I'm never doing that again!" — Murphy said he's refocused.

"I have my passion for it back," he said. "Things took a bit of a nasty turn and now I feel great about it again." No word on who is coming or going, you'll just have to wait and see where things end up in the finale. And that spin-off you heard about is still on the shelf — and if resurrected, it might not be what you thought (originally, it centered on Rachel and Kurt making a go of it in New York.) "I don't know what it would be and I don't know who would be on it," Murphy said.

Ask Matt: Rescue Me, Louie, Ted Danson on CSI, Community, and More!

Question: I have a question about the new season, or rather last season, of Rescue Me. Do you think that the "comedy" writing that they incorporate into the show seems to take away from critical acclaim that shows like The Shield and Justified get? The dramatic parts this year have really felt like they weren't even acting, specifically when Sheila finds Tommy snooping for the letter, and the job Maura Tierney did was spectacular. Granted, it seems more like therapy then acting. What do you think the show's legacy will be? — Glenn

Ask Matt: Glee Project, Summer Finales, Strike Back and More!

Question: Regardless of who wins, I have to say that watching The Glee Project this summer has been a total pleasure. I can't remember another reality competition where I was actually rooting for every contestant, and if Ryan Murphy wanted to add the entire final four to the Glee cast, I don't think I'd mind. But beyond the competition aspect, I love how the show gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how Glee is written and choreographed each week. As a bona fide TV nerd, that's the kind of stuff I find fascinating, and it's given me a new respect for the hard work the regular cast must put in. What are the chances of The Glee Project getting a second season, and what do you think of the ...
