Glee Gets Funky, Jane Lynch Gets Married

While I am much more partial to the gloomy, nonmelodic depictions of high school as found in Freaks and Geeks and My So-Called Life (the one exception to this rule being the two Daria music specials), I must say, Glee could be a whole lot worse. It doesn’t go for groundbreaking, at least not in the lives of its characters, and their shallow melodramas thus seem justified when you realize that the emphasis of the whole thing is on the songs. But this isn’t really about Glee, it’s about Sue Sylvester, or the real life Jane Lynch, supporting actress and guaranteed comedic relief extraordinaire, who got married over Memorial Day weekend to psychiatrist Dr. Lara Embry in Sunderland, Massachusetts. It was small (21 guests), devoid of famous faces and Ms. Sylvester donned pants, which when you think about it, really just fills you with… glee.
