Glee "Theatricality": Gaga Googoo

Musically, "Theatricality" was a lot of fun. Lady Gaga + KISS (+ Barbara Streisand?) = Win. (The arrangement here of "Poker Face" alone makes it worth it.) But any episode that leaves out Sue Sylvester had better make up for it with laughs somewhere, and I just wasn't feeling it. There haven't been many to go around since the hiatus return, instead the series has concentrated on making the show more about having fun with music.

That's helped turn the latest CD release, Glee: The Music, Volume 3 - Showstoppers, the number one album in its first week.

Ok, I guess there was a line from Finn that was funny: "...or some other city where people eat vegetables that aren't fried."

Glee - Episode 1.20
1. "Funny Girl" - Glee Cast with Idina Menzel [Barbara Streisand version]
2. "Bad Romance" - Glee Cast [Lady Gaga version]
3. "Shout it Out Loud" - Glee Cast [KISS version]
4. "Beth" - Glee Cast [KISS version]
5. "Poker Face" - Glee Cast with Idina Menzel [Lady Gaga version]
