I watch Glee. I’m not proud of it. I don’t even like it all that much anymore. But I watch it because I started and damnit if I’m not going to finish it.
I’m dedicated like that.
But this season has been making it really tough to stick by that dedication. Season 1 was new and fun and interesting. The fake baby stuff was stupid, but the rest of it was enough to carry us through. Season 2 muddled along for the most part, but had some good episodes sprinkled in to make me feel I wasn’t totally wasting my time. Season 3, though…this has been rough.
This week’s episode, first one back after a month’s hiatus that kept us on “edge”whether Quinn would survive her car accident (texting whilest driving, tsk), whether Rachel and Finn would get married, and…honestly? I just don’t care.
However, the good in this week’s episode came in the handsome package of Matthew Bohmer of White Collar and Chuck fame. He played Blaine’s (Darren Criss) older brother who has some sort of fame due his starring in a Free Credit Report commercial. There was some definite sibling rivalry between them. Not only did I enjoy his acting, and his acting lessons (point and yell a lot), but he is a pretty decent singer.
And yeah, that’s just a great song. Great.
At one point in the episode Bohmer’s character said he got an audition for a new Michael Bay movie, currently titled Untitled, which he said was clearly code for Transformers 4. And thanks to the glory of the interwebs, we can see his audition tape. Serious acting genius here.
