'Glee' Gears Up for Thrilling Super Bowl Episode
Next Sunday as most Americans chow down on buffalo wings and gather around the TV for the Super Bowl commercials (and oh yes, the game), Glee will air a brand new episode, "Thriller," that will feature the on-going rivalry between New Directions and the football team!
Brad Falchuk, Glee co-creator, tells The New York Post, "We've always explored from the pilot, this idea of the conflict of these two worlds: the glee club and the cool, popular jocky kids at the school. It's now coming to a very serious head and it's coming to a point where it's so severe that Coach Beiste and Will feel like they need to take some action."
So, what can we expect from the special episode that cost $3.5 million (yes, million) to make? Big production numbers and a compelling story arc. As in huge like Katy Perry's "California Gurls" and the late Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Brad adds, "It feels similar to the pilot -- a lot of heart."
