More Glee, Patrick Gallagher, Iqbal Theba, And A Few Other Thoughts

Thursday, May 21, 2009

If you didn't happen to watch the pilot episode of the new FOX show "Glee" you missed a few great things including Iqbal Theba as hardass Principal Figgins, Jenna Ushkowitz's character Tina doing this:

Patrick Gallagher as the weed smoking single football coach Ken Tanaka, and of course - some nice tunes along the way (if you're into that sort of thing).

At the same time...

It'll definitely get old if Ushkowitz's character doesn't get over her stuttering problems pretty quick - because then that's just another female Asian American character who's relegated to mute status - and I'm hoping they put in as much thought into Tanaka and Figgins just like they will with Jayma Mays and Jane Lynch's characters - because it would be a waste if they didn't.

Crossing my fingers and whistling.
