Miniseries: The Glee-Sides, Part 3

The time has come to wrap up our three-part miniseries on Glee, the critically-acclaimed musical comedy-drama that aired on FOX from 2009 to 2015. For Part 3, we now turn to season 3 and another instant-classic episode: Mash Off (3x06). Oof. This episode is particularly bittersweet: Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith act as its biggest stars, and boy do they shine (especially Naya, not that we're keeping score). There is so much going on in this episode...

Mash Off centers around mashups - very much trending in pop music at the time, and Glee really embraced them. In fact, this episode features one of the most iconic mashups of all time, and perhaps one of the greatest scenes in music television history. It all goes down at the end of the episode, so...stick with us. 

But the broader theme of Mash Off appears to be "conflict": conflicting songs, conflicting ideologies, conflicting identities. These conflicts manifest as everything from a spirited dodgeball game to a ruthless political campaign, from eviscerating insults to vulnerable admissions. 

So please join us as we finish, with 2020 vision, this short but substantial and sentimental journey through an Obama-era staple.

If you didn't know, Part 1 and Part 2 of the Glee-Sides are also out now (duh, probably) - they cover the Pilot (1x01), Laryngitis (1x18), Rumours (2x19),  as well as a brief discussion on how this miniseries came to be and some other crucial musings. 

Also! Season 2 of the pod is launching on October 14.  So if you've subscribed and left a review, thank you!
