Us Rating: ***

Story lines in these 10 tales bop all over the place, but the smash still dazzles -- and not just because of guest turns by Britney Spears and Gwyneth Paltrow. Newbie Chord Overstreet clicks as a worthy rival to jock Finn (Cory Monteith), while Darren Criss sings, dances and disarms as the guy mostly likely to kiss Kurt (Chris Colfer). Plus, Heather Morris takes her airhead-y Brittany to sublime levels, grooving as (and with!) Spears in a standout episode. (Fox, $40)
