Breaking news for fans of Fox’s musical-comedy Glee (which won the Golden Globe for best comedy series Sunday night): Rachel and Puck, the musical-theater diva and the football-playing jock, are going to rekindle the romance they briefly enjoyed in an episode early this season. Said show creator Ryan Murphy: “I was really surprised [viewers responded so favorably to that pairing]. I thought people would find her to be far too irritating for him.”
Part of what makes Rachel and Puck such a special couple is their shared heritage. In fact, it is Puck’s desire to settle down with a nice Jewish girl that compels him to pursue her in the first place. Jeremy Dauber wrote about this intra-faith coupling last October in Tablet Magazine.
