8 Memorable ‘Say Anything’ Parodies on Television

The latest episode of New Girl, “Landline,” ended with a throwaway gag involving Winston’s girlfriend Judy trying to get him back after Nick’s meddling accidentally broke the couple up. Judy shows up at the loft, hoists a boombox over her head, and plays “Levon.” It’s an obvious riff on a scene from 1989’s Say Anything… in which Lloyd Dobler tries to win over his longtime crush Diane Court by holding up a boombox that’s blasting “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel. The scene is pure cheese and earnestness, but it has become iconic. New Girl isn’t the first television show to reference Lloyd’s bumbling display of love, and it definitely won’t be the last. Here are eight other homages (and parodies) of the infamous scene. … Read More

A Tale of Two Time Jumps: How ‘Glee’s’ Final Season Will Be Different From ‘One Tree Hill’s’

The quirky universe of Glee — sometimes a campy paean to musical theatre, other times a heart-wrenching after-school special — has undergone a few different mutations since Cory Monteith’s death last July. Finn Hudson and Rachel Berry’s diverging paths were meant to intersect once again in the series finale, in a final scene showrunner Ryan Murphy said he’d planned for years. But when Cory — and with him, Finn — died, Murphy chose to let the McKinley High Glee Club suffer the same fate. It was bittersweet, but not really; the lame Ohio high school story lines had taken a backseat to the grittier and far more interesting New York scenes. We said a quick goodbye to Mr. Schue and basically nothing to the younger McKinley students, then the star older characters — Rachel, Kurt, Artie, Sam, Mercedes, and Blaine — moved to NYC to finish out Season 5. … Read More
