    Episode 52 - What Matters is that I Start Rehearsing Whitney's Version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" Immediately (3x16: Saturday Night Glee-ver & 3x17: Dance With Somebody).

    Time to polish the plexiglass dancefloor and warm up for some impossible vocal runs!

    This week, the Glee club gets a double dosage of themed assignments as they boogie down the hallways in polyester suits in 3x16: "Saturday Night Glee-ver" and pay homage to one of the all-time greats in 3x17: "Dance with Somebody". Who has the vocal chops to give Whitney her due (*cough* Amber) and who falls short (*coughs* Heather and Chris)? Is Saturday Night Fever an effective tool against existential dread? And, for God's sake, when will Mr. Schue get adult friends?!

    Episode 51 - We're Completely Ignoring the Fact that She's Sitting in That Chair? (3x15: Big Brother)

    Time for some unresolved familial sexual tension!

    This week, the eldest Anderson son visits McKinley High School, leaving basically no imprint on the plot of the show. In 3x15: "Big Brother", Matt Bomer drops in to spy on his younger brother at the gym, Coach Roz Washington steals yet another scene, and Quinn is on a wheelchair, but it's not a really big deal?

    We also talk about Matt Bomer's extended role in the Murphyverse, Barb and Star Go to Vista del Mar, and our favorite moments of the past fifty episodes.

    This week, comedian Zach Noe Towers joins us to discuss the most afterschool special of Glee yet, as we dive into 3x14: "On My Way." Karofsky's emotional state leads to Mr. Schue making it all about himself, Finn and Rachel rush their wedding bells, and Quinn is late. Oh, and on top of all that, it's also the Regionals episode.

    Episode 49 - Thank You For Joining Us in Our Nightly Tradition of Turning Dinner into Dinner Theater (3x12: The Spanish Teacher & 3x13: Heart)

    Time to roll those Rs and prep for our nighttime routine!

    This week, guest stars abound and racial stereotypes are propagated as the Glee club gets muy caliente with the arrival of Ricky Martin in 3x12: "The Spanish Teacher", and Rachel's buoyant home life is explored with Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell in 3x13: "Heart". We also discuss Samuel Larsen as Teen Jesus, try to explain Blaine's absence without really trying, and discover the gem that is "Disco Duck".

    Episode 48 - I Haven't Connected with Him the Way that I Have with Barbra or Either of the Stephens (3x10: Yes/No & 3x11: Michael)

    Marry me? What would Michael Jackson do?

    The New Directions try to answer these questions in the two episodes we discuss this week. In 3x10: "Yes/No", Will Schuester outsources his marriage proposal to the Glee club, and that's not even the biggest blur of boundaries he makes. And in 3x11: "Michael", the New Directions try to solve their differences with the Warblers... through dance?

    We also discuss the bad decisions Rachel makes while spiraling, overstuffed tribute episodes, and we create what each of our episodes would look like if we curated the playlist completely.

    Episode 47 - You Gave Me a Dead Pig for Christmas? (3x08: Hold On to Sixteen & 3x09: Extraordinary Merry Christmas)

    Merry belated Christmas and happy Sectionals!

    This week we talk about two episodes who should be much stronger given its individual parts. In 3x08: "Hold on to Sixteen", the New Directions face off against the Trouble Tones, Quinn confronts Shelby, and Lindsay Pearce returns. And in 3x09: "Extraordinary Merry Christmas", the Glee club puts on a Christmas special with some of the strongest wit and out-of-the-box thinking the show has done thus far. But both episodes end up falling apart. Like Lea Michele's hair post-partum.

Love the commentary and great vibes

Jorge and Michael are hilarious as they go over everything that is good and bad about Glee. I love hearing them drag the most ridiculous plot lines. I also love that they talk about what was happening around the time an episode aired. They brought in great guest stars who are were affiliated with the show, like a Warbler, an executive assistant, etc. I didn’t even watch Glee as I listened along to the podcast (I’ve put myself through the show probably no less than 5 times) and I enjoyed putting the podcast on as I worked. I highly recommend this podcast!!

My life support has been plugged back in

Finally my kings have returned. I just got my Year in Review and Gleewind was my most listened too podcast of 2020. I hope y’all are doing well and staying safe and healthy!

For 6Degrees with the upcoming release of The Prom you should do McKinley High School Prom Queen monster Rachel Berry Lea Michele to 2020 monster James Corden.

Amazing

Im currently a senior in high school, and started listening to this podcast a year ago. I absolutely love it. I fell behind a bit with the stresses of college apps and AP tests. So when I had to make an 11 hour drive by myself a few weeks ago, I caught up. You two had me laughing and smiling the entire time. You’re so knowledgeable and the entire show is just so entertaining.
It’s interesting because I think I am definitely not in the expected age range for this podcast. I watched glee for the first time in 2016. I didn’t know any other kids at my age who had watched it, so I didn’t really have anyone to talk to it about. It’s so funny to hear people that have the same opinions and reactions that I did. Anyway I’ve never left a review for anything in my entire life but I figured this podcast was more than well deserving.
P.S
Yes I did make it through the entire series (though after season 3 it was a definite struggle)
And my favorite guest star has to be Gwyneth ;)
Thanks for bringing light into my life even when I’m stressed or feeling down. You reached a teenage girl in Kentucky... so you must be doing something right haha
