Despite their loss at the Regionals, the kids in New Directions are more motivated than ever. And whether it's Will doing a sexy tango with a substitute teacher (Gwyneth Paltrow), Sue joining the glee club, or everyone catching Bieber fever, the excitement at William McKinley High School is keeping everyone on their toes. With more incredible musical numbers, hugely popular guest stars like John Stamos, Carol Burnett and Kristin Chenowith and lots of behind-the-scenes special features, Glee Season 2 hits all the right notes.
The season is an uneven one, losing steam with the Britney Spears tribute episode and some excruciating plot lines, then having slightly more success with themed episodes (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Christmas, and the cleverly handled episode involving Justin Bieber, of all people). Fresh energy came from the new students, guest star Gwyneth Paltrow as substitute teacher Holly Holliday, and new football coach Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones), who even inspires a temporary alliance between Will and Sue (Jane Lynch). The show relied less on Broadway tunes and more on classic rock and contemporary pop (Lady Antebellum, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, Lady Gaga) and even introduced its own original songs, the best of which ("Get It Right," "Loser Like Me") are unveiled in the regionals. Morrison and Michele aren't featured nearly as prominently as they were in the first season, but Michele still crushes her big numbers like "Get It Right" and Katy Perry's "Firework," and she participates in dazzling duets with Amber Riley ("Take Me for What I Am") and Agron ("Unpretty/I Feel Pretty"). Other showstopping moments from the season include Rivera's "Valerie," Rivera and Riley's "River Deep, Mountain High," Overstreet and Agron's "Lucky," Paltrow's "Forget You" and "Landslide," the group rendition of My Chemical Romance's "Sing," and almost anything by the Warblers (voiced by Tufts University's Beelzebubs), especially Pink's "Raise Your Glass" and Neon Trees' "Animal."

"Glee" tells the story of a tiny, bullied glee club (a show choir where the participants sing and dance to either pop or showtunes or both without actually performing a musical) and how both the power of music and a kind mentor who believes in them helps twelve misfits forge a family and strive to share how special they are with the world, no matter how much is stacked against them. Although it sounds like a strangely cheesy premise and an unlikely TV show, "Glee"'s madcap formula, amazing music performances, terrific acting, intriguing characters, and potently quotable one-line zingers launched it into the stratosphere and it quickly became an international sensation and success. Within these plot lines, "Glee" tackled the sensitive issue of teen pregnancy (and how religion can impact that issue) wonderfully, along with showcasing the struggles of teenagers with body issues, the confusing adolescent world of sexuality, popularity, friendship, family, loyalty, bullying and peer pressure. Although there were a few misses in the first season, overall the season itself was one of the brightest and freshest new shows around, and it won several awards for it as well.
There's the rub, however: "Glee" is handled by three showrunners (Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan), all of whom apparently decided that they could do no wrong.Read more ›
First, season 2 had some of the most fantastic songs ever featured on the show. From Quinn and Rachel's "I Feel Pretty/Unpretty" duet to Kurt's absolutely heart-breaking "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" to Santana's "Songbird", the original cast stepped up to the plate and delivered their best performances to date. And then we have new cast members adding to the mix...you guessed it...the incredible Darren Criss in his portrayal as Blaine and the astounding Warblers! Who can forget "Teenage Dream", and how it swept us all of our feet? To sum it up, the music this season was incredible.
Second, the 'in your face' message episodes. These episodes have been criticized for trying to push a message to strongly and obviously. However, I can assure you that this is the only way that the show's target audience- namely teenagers- are going to listen. For example, the episode that dealt exclusively with alcohol. I believe in every way that the episode was brilliant, because in the end the message it sent was 'Yeah, we know you kids are going to drink. It's a fact of life. But you need to be careful, and adults--please give your teenager the support system they need.' This episode actually reached teenagers that I know, and got them thinking harder than any lecture ever had.
And I have to devote an entire tirade to what season 2 has done for the LGBT community.Read more ›
What an enormous difference it made to the show. I had steadily been losing interest in the show but my interest really came right back up the moment he returned front and center. I wrongly thought that Jane Lynch, my other favorite, would be enough to sustain my interest but not so. Much as I loved Gwyneth Paltrow in her first appearance on this show, I was heartily sick of her by her last appearance and was really eager to get back to the show I used to love. I have also really missed seeing Kristin Chenowith this season. She was just superb as April. But I will take getting Kurt back in his rightful place, thank you very much.

Agree with Klatuu, you have to be incredibly naive to think the subject matter is worse than real schools. Quite the opposite.

The difference is the 19.99 version is the first half of the season so the first 10 episodes that aired from September till December will be on it. the 39.99 version is the whole season which won't more than likely be released till September since they have only aired 12 of the supposedly planned...

Brian, this happens to me all the time, especially when I pre-order movies and TV shows the day they're announced... Amazon will of course take into account the price drop, and once the item ships, you'll get an e-mail describing how much you've saved.
For example, I pre-ordered season 2 of... Read More
