Bringing you up to speed

I've been trying to figure out how to handle the recap for the last Lost episode.  I mean, it's bad enough that the thing's going to clock in at 2.5 hours.  But we also have houseguests for the weekend and I can't really excuse myself in the middle of dinner to say, Um, I have to go watch television now - don't interrupt me and I can't answer any questions because if you haven't been watching from the beginning (or even if you have), there's no chance for you.  And if I wait and do the recap while I watch after everyone's gone to bed - which will be relatively early because of their departure flight Monday morning - I'll be up 'til 3:00 a.m. because I have to keep pausing the DVR so my typing can catch up.  It's a whole big thing, I assure you.  So what I think I'm going to do is watch it straight through after everyone's gone to bed and then watch it again Monday and recap it for you then.  It'll be late but I'll retain my sanity, such as it is.

On an entirely other note, is it my imagination or has Glee just been knocking it out of the park lately?  I don't watch it when it airs or even DVR it, but I do keep up on Hulu.  Last night I saw the latest two episodes and they were largely, although not uniformly, fantastic.  First, "Laryngitis" with Finn's adorable cover of "Jessie's Girl" and Kurt's tour de force showtune performance that made me applaud the computer screen.  And then, omigod, the Joss Whedon-directed "Dream On," guest-starring Neil Patrick Harris!  While I couldn't care less about the Rachel-wants-to-meet-her-birth-mother storyline (the show has done way too good a job making that girl annoying), Matthew Morrison and NPH's titular Aerosmith duet was absolutely incredible and sweet Artie's wonderful flash-mob "Safety Dance" number made me grin while my heart was breaking.  Bravo, Glee.

  1. Looking at Glee from a superficial perspective you'd think it was singy-dancy junk, and those who do this are missing out.

    I love Glee. The stories are strong and they deal with issues in a very adult, but entertaining manner. NPH was so great. All their guests are primo. Chenowith's return had me rolling.

    Rachel is an annoying character, but I love me some Lea Michele in all her lame getups. Mmmm.

    How crazy is it that Santana can take her hair down and look like a completely different person?! Have you noticed that?
