GLEE “Showmance” Review Episode 2

Chris Colfer, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz

Tonight, September 9, marks the very anticipated return of GLEE with its second episode “Showmance” on Fox at 9pm.

Glee is my absolute favorite new show this Fall, nothing even comes close to it. It’s so original and finds a way to include musical numbers that would even appeal to non-muscial lovers.

In the second episode, everything that you loved about the first episode is back.


Will Schuester

In this episode, Will tries to find new students to join the Glee club. He decides to put up a little presentation for the school, but unfortunately his choice of song is not that great (as you can read below).
We also find out something about his wife, Terri, which could affect their relationship in future episodes.


I love how Emma has her own theme song. You always know that she’s on-screen when you hear it. And yes she is still as adorable and as in love with Will as ever.

Sue Sylvester

Sue Sylvester is of course still trying to put an end to this Glee club nonsense, but unfortunately, it’s not as easy as she first anticipated. This leads her to find new means to achieve her goal. I personally just enjoy seeing Jane Lynch on screen, no matter what she does. You definitely love to hate her in Glee.

Rachel & Finn

While the Glee club is getting bigger, unfortunately, it hasn’t done anything for Rachel’s status in school. She is still pretty quirky, which is refreshing compared to the usual characters you see on TV.
As for Finn, well he is 100% committed to the Glee club now and there could be some feelings developing between him and Rachel…


In this episode, the Glee club performs some new song. So how about we take a look at them.

First up, “Le Freak” by Chic, which unfortunately for them is the song that Mister Schuester wants them to perform in front of the whole school.

Kanye West’ “Gold Digger” which at this point I assume you’ve already seen at least once (if not more, like me). But it just doesn’t get old, and Matthew Morrison has got some moves!

And finally, “Push It” by Salt-N-Pepa, which is performed… well I don’t want to give everything away, so you’ll have to watch the episode to find out.

“I Say a Little Prayer” by Aretha Franklin performed by Quinn (Dianna Agron).

“Take a Bow” by Rihanna, which is performed beautifully by Rachel (Lea Michele).

Glee is the MUST SEE show this Fall 2009, so don’t forget to watch it tonight at 9pm on Fox.
