Wendy's Week of TV 2.0: I dreamed a dream

I realised this morning that in my prescription drug induced haze yesterday I forgot to write my Wendy's Week of TV 2.0. I'm sure none of you could sleep last night in the anticipation that I might remember and write it today. No? Oh well. I can but dream.

Still, it was a pretty good week of TV watching last week. The Doctor, Bones, Big Bang, Community, Chuck (growing on me), Glee, the realisation that Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart were off repeats ( This only dawned on my on Friday. Luckily I have it set to record every night just in case so I could do a catch-up session).

But really it was all about Glee. Glee and slight disappointment. Now....let's get this in the correct order. I was very excited when I heard that Neil Patrick Harris (aka Doogie Howser MD, aka Barney from How I Met Your Mother) was going to guest star on Glee. I was even more excited when on Thursday evening I realised that this was the night when Mr Harris (or is that Mr Patrick Harris) was guest starring. Things started well. Good character name - Brian Ryan. Nice flashback to olden days of Glee with NPH singing Daydream Believer in a beautifully hokey fashion complete with mullet hair. But then it all got a little boring. Sue Sylvester relegated to two minor scenes. OCD Emma and unrequited love of Will's life one paltry scene with Artie. Blah blah...the dream theme went on and on. I did not think it was Glee's finest hour. And I say that as a mid-level Gleek. However, then all was forgiven and forgetten with Rachael's I Dreamed a Dream from Les Mis. Call me soppy, call me a musical nerd, but I got many goosebumps watching that.

More please.

Well that's a bit disappointing. Mind you, I ahve miles of Glee still to watch. It's sitting there on my DVR.

I guess I just thought it was a wasted opportunity :-(

Emma said...

I Dreamed a Dream was definitely the best part of the episode! Idina Menzel should become a regular.
I want to see the Emma character have more scenes!

Wendy said...

Yes me too....the Will and Emma storyline has really gone off the radar lately...bring it back!
