I just saw the first episode of #Glee! =)  It was fun but I was maybe expecting and anticipating a little more so at the end of it, I wasn’t all that excited.

I know.  It’s the first episode and they are establishing the tone for the season and introducing new characters and piecing together a good storyline but hey, last season was very good so I think it’s but right for me, for us gleeks (oh no! I can’t believe, I am calling myself one), to expect something more.

Anyway, Glee season 2 is a big deal for us Filipinos. Major, major deal, because a Filipina – Charice Pempengco, Oprah darling and singer of the hit ‘Pyramid’, has a recurring role in season 2.  She is SUNSHINE CORAZON.

Lea Salonga, another international Filipino Star said in her twitter account that the name of Charice’s character might have been a tribute to our dear president Madame Corazon Aquino (Bless her).  Pres. Cory is known for her yellow outfits.  Sunshine = yellow. =)

Charice’s appearance has been talked about in the entire Philippines not just this week but for the past months.  She was on the news because of undergoing Botox treatment for her jaw problem.  Some are saying she did that to lessen the roundness of her face.  Everyone had an opinion about it.  Anyway, seeing Charice as Sunshine Corazon really made my night. I am proud to watch her trading high notes with Lea Michele who has been ever excellent as Rachel Berry.  I wanted their duet, Telephone to extend.  Boo Sue Sylvester for breaking it off.

Charice’s solo – Listen, was good but I have heard her belt it out way better so many times before so I am kind of disappointed a little bit.  But I am hoping, and really do think, she’ll be back in a few more episodes.  I like it that she has been recruited as part of Vocal Adrenaline, which means Sunshine and Rachel will be pitted against each other a lot more.  But that also means, she may not be appearing regularly.
