Find out Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern on FX. Catch up with our recap of last week's episode!)

  1. Good lord, Chord Overstreet is hot! Part of it is because he seems to keep his sense of humor.

  2. I second that about Overstreet. I've been drooling over him since before Glee. He does seem like a nice, self-deprecating guy despite looking like a god. But Billy Joel? Are they trying to capture an older demographic? You can't tell me that any high school student is listening to Billy Joel unless their parents are playing it.

  3. RE Glee and the older skewing music, I've been wondering why, also. Maybe it's cheaper to license the music and songs for these artists? And it's not helping the ratings, either, as the show keeps hitting lows.

    Personally, I think they missed the boat not doing a Cher episode. She just had a new album released and her music spans all generations (I think). Are young kids into her?

  4. One of the most appealing things about Glee has always been its inclusion of songs not likely to be familiar with its predominant base of viewers. Glee has introduced a generation of young people to music they never would have heard or appreciated, so this isn't really much of a stretch.

  5. Just what video format does one need to view the Atlantis trailers? All I got were grey rectangles without even the courtesy of a note as to which video player is needed. :-(
