So…I’m actually pretty on board - more than I thought I would be - with RM’s plans…I’ve skimmed all the interviews but was a little overwhelmed and freaked out, so I could have missed things, but here is the flavour of what I’m getting:

1. Time jump in season 6 - my guess is a couple of years/end of college type thing.

2. Kurt and Blaine will break up in the season finale - their ‘saga’ is a big part of the final season…the theme of the season is comeback…so I imagine them finding each other again is the plan….(I actually predicted this quietly to a couple of people when Brad F said the theme of season 6 was comeback…they can vouch for me. I’ve been thinking this for a while). Yes, I’m sad about it. Very.

3. The new location??? - I guess LA is one part of that?? 

4. No newbies. Maybe briefly at one point, but that was RM’s nice way of saying - thanks for a great job but we’re focusing on the originals.

5. The cast will remain small and focused and probably who we think. (Not Hemo full time, and Santana’s name was conspicuously absent from that article).

6. The one thing I’m finding weird - He doesn’t talk about Kurt other than the tease about Russia (lol)…are we going to have a period of Blaine and Rachel in LA without Kurt? (I am SURE Chris isn’t leaving the show - not a chance. And he also said the klaine saga is a big part of the season). I’d like to get some clarification on the Kurt factor here. I think it’s worth pressing RM on this in the Q/A tonight.

I was actually worried they were going to re-introduce Lima, all the newbies, have klaine break up, be in 2 different cities and in that context find each other again. This time jump with many few characters is definitely preferable to me.

But yeah, I know I kept saying it. But at ep 5.01 there was WAY too much Glee left for happily ever after. It’s a show about growing up. Let’s just hope they continue to get a lot of focus a few years down the road.

This pretty well sums up my feelings.

She posted on her Facebook yesterday so she filmed her part on Tuesday.

Glee has pulled another Oscar-winning actress into its orbit.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Shirley MacLaine is set to appear in multiple episodes of the Fox musical-dramedy — and her character has big plans for Darren Criss’ Blaine.

MacLaine, whose limited TV resume includes a recurring role as Lady Grantham’s mother Martha on Downton Abbey, will portray a powerful New York socialite intent on turning recent Big Apple transplant Blaine into a superstar. Her first episode is slated to air later this month.

Full Performance of “Downtown” from “New York, New York” | GLEE

During which I spend a lot of time going “Okay that’s a fake subway, is that a fake corner or a real corner…”

This gives me so many feelings.  Foolishly, one of them is wanting to explain New York to you, where “downtown” is vs. how it functions as a cardinal direction.  But everyone knows everything about New York, just like everyone knows nothing about it.  That’s the weird thing about being from a city that’s on TV.

This, which is so conspicuously Not Right (wow, the hotdog stand was meant to reference Papaya King, but got shoved through the California filter so hard I thought I was at the fucking market next to the The Grove), made me feel such deep love for my city, and for “downtown” which was my salvation growing up on the Upper East Side.  Of course downtown is where you find (found) artists, gay people, and as my mother still says unironically, bohemians. These days, you also find rents you can’t afford and too many NYU students.

But this is a perfect New York fantasy, the one for artists and weirdos, no bankers and recent college grads doing time before they decide the only moral choice for raising children isn’t to do it here.

And this is Glee being exceptionally smart.  Because being in a hired car in NY is being outside of the life of this city, at least the life of this city that this show is about.  And there’s Rachel having everything and nothing and about to get hit by a two-by-four.  Meanwhile, we know “Bash” is coming.  The characters don’t.

This is the moment before the fall.  And it’s motherfucking perfect.

…but got shoved through the California filter so hard I thought I was at the fucking market next to the The Grove

That clip absolutely looks like it was shot here, but either on the Paramount lot or at Grand Central Market, which is adjacent to the Million Dollar Theatre.

It’s the Paramount backlot. I’ve seen that stand set up for other filming. Also the part where Kurt comes out of the subway. The gyro truck was parked by the diner one of the times I did the tour. I may have taken the tour too many times. Oops.
