More fun news keeps pouring in from the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour. We brought the scoop on Melrose Place, now we bring some inside stuff and just some fun stuff from Glee, Fringe, and House courtesy of Entertainment Weekly‘s Michael Ausiello.
Ready for some Glee? According to the panel that included the cast and executive producers, it’s going to be a good season. In reference to the pregnancy plot involving Jessalyn Gilsig’s character, executive producer Brad Falchuk said, “the ends will justify the means.” I have no idea what that means, but I’ll take it, I guess. Jane Lynch hopes to perform a rendition of Rose’s Turn from Gypsy, which would be out of the world amazing, and says her character is fantastic as “I get to say the best, [most] heinous things.” Ready for some fun stuff? According to the cast there will be an episode called “Wheels”, where everyone does a wheelchair dance routine. Make sure to look out for the Glee soundtrack to hit stores around November with another one in December. Yay Glee!
Ready for some Fringe? According to executive producer, Jeff Pinkner, the show will only take place in two dimensions or versions of reality. The story will take place predominately in our world, but what is happening in the other reality will affect ours. The panel also revealed that the parallel dimension wasn’t going to come into play until the end of season 3, but that they audience seemed ready so they did it earlier, and I’m glad they did! One thing the cast and crew seem very careful about is not letting the idea of more that one dimension and mythologies dominate the show. Bravo folks. Keep up the good work!
Ready for some House? The big news from the House panel is that the imaginary hookup that took place last season won’t be affecting House and Cuddy’s relationship as much this fall. “We’re stepping back from it a little bit. We’re not ignoring it,” creator David Shore said. “We have to carry forward… It’s going to go someplace eventually. But the beginning of this season is primarily focused on House trying to find some semblance of sanity, and not completely succeeding.” Omg! Why are you doing this to me House? Why?!?!?
