Glee "Pot O' Gold": Muck of the Irish

Glee Project (co-)winner Damian McGinty makes his awaited debut as Irish exchange student Rory. And he wears lots of green and sings The Muppets classic "Bein' Green." And he's mistaken for a leprechaun. And he's tortured by hockey mullets, asking him to admit that U2 is overrated (when the mullets look just like Bono circa War). Can't wait for the 'very special' episode where Rory becomes a poetry-spouting alcoholic.

Aside from that ridiculousness, we're reminded that Finn was once one of the main characters in the show, we got a healthy does of Kurt's dad Burt (Mike O'Malley) and there was no Rachel (Lea Michele) solo in sight. Also: Darren Criss (Blaine) participates in some meta music work, singing Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night," when the actor in fact factored prominently in Perry's music video for the song (along with Kevin McHale, who plays Artie).
