When I heard that Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel and Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester) of Glee had both received nominations for supporting actor/actress Emmys, I was very pleased. (Can I say more for Chris than for Jane? I have a really hard time with Sue. Sometimes, I just don't find her funny. Her best scenes are with her sister.) I told at least one person that the nomination I really wanted to see from that show, though, was Mike O'Malley as Burt Hummel, Kurt's dad.

I didn't realize until I read it in TV Guide: Mike O'Malley got a nomination as guest star! (The complete list pdf is here.) Huzzah!

I haven't read the whole list yet. I'm just thrilled that someone I thought did a recurring role perfectly actually got a nomination!

Mostly, I hate the plots on Glee. I can't stand half the adults who are regulars. The less I see of Will Schuster, the better. I pretty much only like Sue Sylvester when she's with her sister. I never want to see Teri or her sister again. I only like Emma some days.

For me, it's The Kurt and Mercedes Show—or The Kurt and Kurt's Dad and Mercedes Show. Spoilers through the Gaga episode )

One last thing, though: I hate it when they praise the originality and importance of the celebrity of the week. I didn't like it when they did it with Madonna, who has enough staying power that even I can't deny her importance and influence. Lady Gaga hasn't been around long enough to show that she's not a flash in the pan. If we want to see women taking on characters and singing, let's hear someone with a fantastic voice. I want an Annie Lennox episode. They can do some Eurythmics and some of her solo work. She has a far better voice than Madonna, more interesting songs, and doesn't come with cheap jokes about dating children.

I guess one after-last thing: I suppose we'll never see them do Weird Al, but I keep hearing alternate words in my head to the songs they're doing.
Like a surgeon—hey!
Cuttin' for the very first time!

Brilliant Husband just called me in to see an ad that ran during his show; conveniently, it's on YouTube:
(30 second promo for Psych and White Collar)



OMG! Now I want Psych back! Gus, you are my man! Plus now I want to see White Collar!

When can I fit in White Collar, though?
1. We just heard that Chuck has been renewed; we're still on s2. Must finish s2, then mainline the DVDs of s3 (if available) before s4 starts in the fall.
2. I returned to the fold and resumed watching SGU (thoughts on that later—remind me, 'k?).
3. We're (re)watching Greatest American Hero (I saw it all, I think; BH saw much of it, but it's been years, and dang but it's still funny).
4. Soon Psych will return, and
5. I'll probably go back to Warehouse 13.
6. Oh, and there's Glee (known in our house as The Kurt and Mercedes Show; who's with me on this?)
7. Of course, we still have Big Bang Theory.
8. We're watching Leverage even more slowly than rewatching GAH; I think we're averaging one episode of Leverage every six weeks or so.
9. We haven't yet seen s3 of Slings and Arrows.
10. I'm sure I'm forgetting things, but those may be the shows people have urged me to start (West Wing, Man from UNCLE, I Spy) that we haven't actually started. (We watched one episode of I Spy, but I have to finish the rewatch of GAH before I do more of that, or I'm going to have some serious cognitive dissonance. I had enough difficulty with that one episode as it was. Not enough to stop me from watching more at some point, however.)

When did I last have this many shows at once? What the heck am I doing with a job? Clearly, I need to stop and just start watching shows full time! Ah—but then it might get hard to pay for cable and Netflix. Catch-22.

Back to the salt mines. (I get paid to read Old English. I don't complain too much about that!)

Just watch the little promo above.

Read the Trek movie scene originally written for William Shatner to play older Kirk. (Then you may want to join me in a sigh of relief that they didn't use it, for reasons I'll share if anyone cares.)

Interesting: from Newsweek: "Why Glee's Losers and Mean Girls Are So True to Life". Actually, I find few of the characters more than passingly realistic (Kurt and Mercedes have been my faves for a while, but Kurt's dad is threatening to overtake both the kids for just being so darned real!). I have to remind myself sometimes that I'm not watching for plot (heaven forbid!) or even character (I can't like many of these people much at all), but for singing! and dancing! Those make me happy.
