Glee Meme, Day 11: Favourite Sue Sylvester Moment

I like Jane Lynch on Glee. She’s not as brilliant as some people would make her out, but she’s brilliant enough. She’s having so much fun I can’t resist her. I do prefer her in her ridiculous register when she’s offensively lying through her teeth, and really there are so many moments when she’s just brilliant. Her singing voice is a joy to listen to, but I’m not sure her singing really works in context. That’s why I’m always happiest when she’s using her voice for giving out brilliant one liners (or entire paragraphs). Consider her usual diary diatribes.
“Dear Journal;
Feeling listless again today. It began at dawn when I tried to make a smoothie out of beef bones breaking my juicer... And then at Cheerio’s practice – disaster! It was unmistakeable. (Cut to Quinn wavering at the top of the pyramid.) It was like spotting the first spark on the Hindenburg – a quiver. That quiver will lose us nationals and without a championship I’ll lose my endorsements...and without those endorsements I won’t be able to buy my hovercraft!
Glee club! Every time I try to destroy that clutch of scab-eating mouth-breathers it only comes back stronger like some sexually ambiguous horror movie villain. Here I am, about to turn thirty and I’ve sacrificed everything only to be shanghaied by the bi-curious machinations of a cabal of doughy, misshaped teens. Am I missing something journal? Is it me? Of course it’s not me. It’s Will Schuester!”

Jane Lynch is just brilliant with the ridiculous and her brand of crazy is imperative to balance out the all other types of crazy of Glee. I don’t consider her best-in-show (although she completely ruled “Throwdown”). If there’s one thing the woman can do, it’s sell a monologue. So happy that she’s now an Emmy winner.

I just LOVE her diary entries. So impeccably written and delivered.

I thought she was just amazing on the one episode where she and Will are fighting to "O fortuna" at the beginning...I can't remember exactly which it was, but she was just AMAZING!

robert the episode you refer to IS "throwdown": it's the one episode where jane just massacres everyone (literally and figuratively). morrison is good there too, but it's jane's strongest work for me (surprised that wasn't her emmy submission actually: but she won either way).

I *love* the journal entries. My favorite (I think I've got it right): "Can it be? I am starting to have thoughts about one Will Schuester. Sexy, non-murdering thoughts!"

Robert said...

Ah! So that is the one I thinking of. Very good. I'm surprised as well that she didn't submit that, but I was rooting for her so I am very glad she won. :)

walter yes, even though the entire "funk" episode is hated by some i love it - especially morrison and lynch. their mutual hatred (character wise) brings out the best in each other.

robert i agree.
