TV Fanatic Mid-Season Report Card: Glee

at .

We must face the sad truth: every single primetime show is on hiatus until 2010. Before the calendar turns, however, let's take a look back.

So far, the TV Fanatic staff has reviewed the ups and downs of The Vampire Diaries, 90210, House, Heroes, NCIS and The Good Wife in our mid-season report cards.

In this edition: Glee.

Best character: Kurt. This was a close call. But while Sue Sylvester utters our the funniest Glee quotes, she doesn't sing. Conversely, we can typically rely on Kurt for a great one-liner and a great note or two dozen during one of the show's countless musical numbers. He was also the focus of our favorite episode so far, "Preggers."

Worst character: Terri. This isn't Jessalyn Gilsig's fault. Her character was simply given grating material. Now that the fake pregnancy storyline has ended, perhaps Terri can return to simply being neurotic and somewhat entertaining.

Best storyline: We referenced it above. When Kurt officially came out of the closet, we got to see Chris Colfer at his acting best; along with a surprisingly strong performance by Mike O'Malley as his father. We also got to watch this incredible scene.

Grade: A.

Hopes for 2010: Sue singing; A divorce for the Schuesters; A Bon Jovi-themed episode; More tension between New Directions and Vocal Adrenaline.

Glee Quotes

All I want is just one day a year when I'm not visually assaulted by uglies and fatties.


So you like show tunes. It doesn't mean you're gay. It just means you're awful.
