Glee Recap: I Am Unicorn

 After a second season full of irregularities and a lack of continuity, Ryan Murphy promised Glee would get back to basics on season 3 and fortunately... he has delivered.

 Last week´s episode was a solid start and cleaned up the house after the big mess that was last year storywise. This week, on the other hand, it was like season one Glee all over again (and that is a good thing!).

 Idina Menzel has returned to the show and her scenes with Lea Michele were absolutely amazing. Their rendition of Somewhere was astonishing! Idina´s character also stirred up things for Puck and Quinn which made their characters interact with each other once again which is something we really missed.

 The music was great as all the songs featured in the episode were Broadway classics (bonus points for that!) and were also integrated within the storylines of each character.

 Characters who have great chemistry were interacting with each other (Rachel & Finn, Kurt/Burt, Britanny & Santana, Kurt & Burt) which brought up the best of them adding quality acting to the episode.

 To sum up:

The Best: Idina Menzel´s return as Shelby and Kurt auditioning for the lead of the school musical.

The Worst: Quinn and her constantly annoying ways. Plus, even though he´s a loveable character, the two first episodes of the season have revolved quite a lot around Kurt. It´s time to let other characters shine as well.

Quote to Remember: "When a pony does a good deed, he gets a horn and he becomes a unicorn. And then he poops out cotton candy until he forgets he's magical. And then his horn falls off. And black unicorns, they become zebras."—Brittany

Best Musical Number: We were going to go with Idina & Lea´s rendition of "Somewhere" but then Darren Criss performed and stole the show once again with a brilliant cover of  "Something's Coming."

The moment: Burt telling his son Kurt to change the rules and rewrite his own history.

 The group released this official statement on their website:

"To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening."

 Frontman Michael Stipe has confirmed that the split has been amicable "though it wasn't an easy decision to come to".

Stype added:  

"A wise man once said -- 'the skill in attending a party is knowing when it's time to leave.' We built something extraordinary together. We did this thing. And now we're going to walk away from it. I hope our fans realize this wasn't an easy decision; but all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way."

 The music video for Darren Hayes new single, Bloodstained Heart, is here! 

 Shot in the UK and directed by Chris Cottam, Darren has described the track as the story of a beautiful friendship:

 "The song means so much to me because I wrote it about a time in my life when someone close to me was going through a horrible time and I wished more than anything that I could step in and take the bullet for them. We´ve all experienced that helpless feeling of standing by idly while someone you love is suffering - and wished you could absorb the impact for them. It´s about those situations in life where, maybe you feel you are losing the battle, but you´ll never lose your dignity."

Andy Whitfield Dies at 39

  It´s a sad day for Spartacus fans today, as it has been oficially reported that the former star of the show, Andy Whitfield, passed away on Sunday of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Whitfield´s wife released a statement that reads as follows:

“On a beautiful sunny Sydney spring morning, surrounded by his family, in the arms of his loving wife, our beautiful young warrior Andy Whitfield lost his 18-month battle with lymphoma cancer. He passed peacefully surrounded by love. Thank you to all his fans whose love and support have help carry him to this point. He will be remembered as the inspiring, courageous and gentle man, father and husband he was.”

 Whitfield was diagnosed with treatable Stage 1 non-Hodgkin lymphoma in early March of 2010. After being declared cancer-free two months later, he was ready to return to work on the show that had been interrupted earlier.

 However, in September it was announced that the actor had to leave the original series entirely due to his illness and was substituted by Liam McIntyre as the lead character.

 We are deeply saddened by the news and our thoughts are with his family and friends in these difficult times.

 The former star of Grey´s Anatomy is investing all her efforts on her big screen career and it looks like it´s paying off.

 Want to find out what the movie is about? Read the official synopsis below:

  Stephanie Plum’s got plenty of attitude, even if she’s been out of work for the last six months and just lost her car to a debt collector. Desperate for some fast cash, Stephanie turns to her last resort: convincing her sleazy cousin to give her a job at his bail bonding company … as a recovery agent. True, she doesn’t even own a pair of handcuffs and her weapon of choice is pepper spray, but that doesn’t stop Stephanie from taking on Vinny’s biggest bail-jumper: former vice cop and murder suspect Joe Morelli - yup, the same sexy, irresistible Joe Morelli who seduced and dumped her back in high school. 

One for the Money opens up on January 27, 2012!

Ellen Pompeo Ready for More "Grey´s Anatomy"

 As many of us know by now, this year Grey´s Anatomy may suffer some drastic changes as most of its original cast contracts will be up by the end of the season.

 After last year´s remarks about leaving the show once her contract was up, now Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) has stated to TV Guide magazine that she is pretty much open to negotiation in order to come back again next season.

  "I was invited for eight years — that was my contract — and no one has asked me for a day more. I know [creator] Shonda Rhimes has said the show will continue, but I wouldn't presume that they want to continue with me. You don't get dressed for the party if you don't have an invitation."

 Pompeo seems optimistic about  discussing it and does not rule out staying with the show, specially for the fans:

 "I would love the opportunity to discuss it. I would never turn up my nose at Grey's. As long as the stories are honest and truthful, and Patrick [Dempsey] and I feel there is material for us to be passionate about, it still beats a 9-to-5 job any day. If I hear from the fans that they want us to keep going, then I would continue because we owe them everything."

 Would you want Pompeo to stay on Grey´s Anatomy? Could the show survive without her?

Gillian Anderson Speaks About "X Files 3"

  Gillian Anderson recently addressed the rumors regarding a third X Files movie while she attended the world premiere in Sydney of Universal’s Johnny English Reborn, in which she plays the head of fictional MI7 opposite Rowan Atkinson.

“I hope it will happen, there’s talk of it. I don’t know who’s writing it but I hear there’s something going on,” she shared.

 Not only she confirmed her intention of her reprising her iconic role of agent Dana Scully but she was also positive about doing a film spoof of the popular Fox TV show.

“I’ve always wanted to do a spoof of the X Files as a film. We talked about that for a long time but maybe after three features we could get to do a spoof feature.”

What do you guys think? Are you interested in a third X Files film?

Tune of the Week: Burn - Melanie C

 Burn is one of our favourite tracks from The Sea, as it speaks about the difficulty of letting go of a broken relationship.
