    I read a review that it has. Haven't had a chance to see much this season (my daughter hates it and usually holds the remote while I do school stuff), but I did catch the "Glee Wedding" and now the Christmas episode.

    WOW! The lip-synching wasn't all that good...and the story lines seemed to be second to the production numbers. I LOVED LOVED LOVED Glee... now it's a glitzy shell of the first season. :(

    Agree? Or still a gleek through and through?

    Still Gleeking out, some episodes are better than others but overall I enjoy the show.

    I really enjoyed tonight's Christmas episode but I was unimpressed with most of the season up until this point. I actually used the "jump the shark" phrase just last week. But I'm a sucker for any Christmas episode.:angel:

    I really liked the wedding episode and did not like tonight's show. I thought it was rather pointless and silly. Although, dork that I am, I got all excited that Rachel wore the same dress that I wore to work today:)

    Now that I am thinking about it, I guess that isn't a good thing.

    I was saying to hubby... I liked it when "no one" was watching last season. This season has been a little slow. I haven't seen tonite's episode yet (DVRed).

    They have had some good songs this year. I liked Gwenth on it!!1

    It was a cute dress (and work appropriate)!

    I haven't seen last night's yet... I didn't get into the show until the end of last season, caught up over the summer when they ran the reruns... I love it :)

    Althouh I have to say, one of my reasons for watching is because I get a kick out of quoting Brittney's character afterwards. She gets the best lines.

    Last season, I never missed an episode.

    This season, I haven't seen one.

    Same here, kcjo. With the exception of the Brittany Speares episode. I was so disappointed that I stopped watching.

    It was like the buildup to regionals consumed the whole first half of the first season, then it was just...over...now what are they working towards??

    I think this season has been a bit of a let down, too. That being said, I love the story line with Kurt and the bully, and I really hoped they'd explore that more. I also *love* Brittany and Artie.

    Let me say that I watch the show for one reason: Jane Lynch. She has the best one liners,and I am not sure how any cast member can keep a straight face.
    I am disappointed with this season as well. But, I am still a Gleek.

    I love Jane Lynch!

    I think they've started relying too much on guest stars.

    I still watch Glee, but I've been disappointed in the "sexual nature" of many of the storylines this season. They have been overly, overly sexual and I have often had to change the channel.

    I enjoyed the Christmas episode, and my favorite song so far this season BY FAR was the mashup of Umbrella/Singing in the Rain!

    I totally agree regarding the sexual episodes. The one where the 2 Cheerios were making out was completely unnecessary. Unfortunately, my 13 year old daughter saw that episode :eek:. I also loved the Umbrella/Singing in the Rain mash up. Who knew Gwyneth could sing.
