Glee Season Two Preview: Empire State of Mime
To judge from the show's brand new promo, Glee's second season will also be a meditation on not-stopping-believing: The singers vie to attend nationals, which take place in New York City, and they've got the Jay-Z/Alicia Keys spunk and smiley lip-sync prowess to pull it off. Video after the jump.
· Schue tells the group, "We have to go from a small rebel force to a wall of sound." If there's another glee club in the United States that sounds more like a wall of sound, please stand up. Your accompanist in the granny sweater and curlers is Phil Spector himself.
· Sue Sylvester's "fry cooks and bus drivers" line is not funny, and it is beneath Jane Lynch. A whistle blow is indeed in order.
· The funnest part of the clip is the return of Artie's thug antics (from the episode "Funk," as you'll recall) and watching Kurt jive for a split second in his shades. Kurt's the side-part from the south side, y'all.
· Prediction: We'll be hearing some Beastie Boys and Billy Joel jams this season. And the Velvet Underground, too if we're really, really lucky.
