I was very interested to see how the series was going to split up its NYC and Lima storylines. Nothing innovative really, but enjoyable cutting back and forth for "A New York State of Mind.". Several debuts tonight which were noteworthy and will look for impressive songs from them in the weeks ahead. The scene with Kurt and his dad made the hour (they're always special together, and Mike O'Malley is great). As usual, Ryan Murphy laid on the mean a bit too thick with Kate Hudson's character (no shading at all). In all, a good season opener.
