  1. So excited to get to listen on Stitcher!!!!!

    Glee Project vs Glee – I like it for the same reason you do – it’s about the music and not some crap fake story. BUT, did you see that spoiler from Ryan Murphy that there are going to focus more on CHARACTER S3? What? All I know is that if there is even MORE Creepy Mr Shue, I won’t be able to watch.
    SYTYCD-Why dies everyone hate Iveta? Because she is not 19? The fact that she (they) got the Quickstep in round 1 and then Bollywood in round 2? While not perfect these are both usually saved for top 10. I assume she and Nick are getting harder choreography because she is a world champion. I would love to see her do contemporary. So far, I just hate Ryan (that smile is driving me nuts!) and the “sexy” girls.
    So happy that everyone is on The Glades bandwagon! I also liked Falling Skies and I don’t hate Switched at Birth. I am watching Franklin and Bash and don’t hate it either. But I usually don’t get to it until Friday or Saturday.
