About Rae Bradshaw

My husband got sick of seeing all my tweets about TV end up on Facebook, so I decided to start a blog. Then I decided I didn't have enough on my plate and I went looking for sites to publish my reviews. No White Noise seemed like the perfect home for me, especially because I literally hate silence. That means the TV is almost always on at my house, whether I’m sitting around watching it or actually doing something productive. This season I'll be covering Glee here at NWN. My favorite shows of all time(or my lifetime) are Arrested Development, Lost, and Friday Night Lights, to name a few. I also dabble in writing screenplays and the occasional teleplay. Check out my other reviews at Watch It, Rae!

Glee ‘Diva’ review: Keep your lips to yourself

C+ Recaps By

This episode had way too many people kissing other people that they shouldn’t. Even though Santana ended up going to New York, and Brittany’s still her BFF, I could just see Sam waiting in the wings to witness the innocent peck she gives Brittany, and not think it was so innocent.

Glee ‘Naked’ review: Modest is hottest…

…unless your name is White Chocolate, then by all means, leave your shirt off! In all seriousness though, I liked the way this episode ended, with Sam taking one for the team Artie and leaving his clothes on. He still looked super adorable, even when he was covered up. I loved the tribute to Sam at the end and all the Blam bromance in this episode too, though I kept thinking, ‘Please don’t kiss him, please don’t kiss him.’ In addition, I think they presented the reality that men can also suffer from body dysmorphia way too soon after the Marley-eating-disorder story line.

Glee ‘Sadie Hawkins’ review: An ode to Sam Evans

Now this would have been the perfect episode to title “Glee, Actually.” The dance was winter themed and everybody is in love with everybody else. From Tina to Blaine to Sam, then the unnamed neck-braced Cheerio to Ryder to Marley to Jake to Kitty. Of course, if it were up to me, everyone would just be in love with Sam.

Glee 4×10 ‘Glee, Actually’ review: Not actually about Love, Actually

This episode was a lot more heartwarming than I thought it would be, but as always, there’s way too much going on. I could forgive the five-story-line idea if they either gave each story a different movie to pay homage to or stuck with one movie tribute and rolled with it.

Glee 4×09 ‘Swan Song’ review: I’m just not buying it

I can’t get over how ridiculous everyone in this episode sounds. Let’s start with Sam, a character I usually adore but whose story line and dialogue I totally hate this season. I know he’s supposed to be this huge idiot and all now, but there is no way he has ALWAYS had a crush on Brittany.

Glee 4×08 ‘Thanksgiving’ review: Run, Jenna, Run

So I love K-pop as much as the next red-blooded American, but this was the most racist thing I’ve seen on television since the Linsanity debacle. At the end of Season 3, the writers hyped up Tina’s star potential with the ‘Props’ episode. They paid her character an ounce of attention with the season premiere, but we didn’t hear anything about her again until Mike came back to help choreograph the musical.

Glee 4×06 ‘Glease’ review: You literally make me sick

I’d like to say sorry to anyone who was offended by both the show’s portrayal of Wade/Unique’s trans lifestyle and anything I had to say about it last week. I feel like we’re kind of in the same boat now, as the writers totally massacred what it’s like to grow up with an eating disorder.

Glee 4×05 ‘The Role You Were Born to Play’ review: Brunettes have more fun

Like Mike and Mercedes, I’m back, Glitches! On the heels of a hiatus, I must say, Fox’s programming ‘strategy’ just doesn’t work, at least for non-rerun-junkies like me who don’t even watch TV during prime time. Yes, I have a life. Actually, Glee is the only show I reluctantly watch ‘live,’ but that’s because my only bigger beef with Fox is their arrangement with Hulu and I hate streaming links.

Glee 4×04 ‘The Break-Up’ review: I’m just so broken up. Not.

This was by no means the best episode of the series or even the season. I’m just going to dive right in. This cast is just way too freaking big. Shows like Grey’s Anatomy only thrive with an enormous ensemble because their writers are extremely talented, and Glee just isn’t pulling it off.

Glee 4×03 ‘Makeover’ review: Don’t you dare look down

If you haven‘t seen this episode yet, don’t take your eyes off the screen during the ‘Celebrity Skin’ music number. I missed approximately two seconds of sweet Sam Evans shirtlessness because I was typing while they sang. Those are two seconds I will never get back. At least not in HD…until next week, when the free version of Hulu relinquishes the episode to us.
