I agree. The bow ties look stupid. Blaine does look smaller without the blazer.
I enjoyed the music in last night's show. Glad Quinn got rid of that red hair.

I think it comes down to the fact that the writers don't think of the characters as people but props, and so there's no real flow to their lives. Too many ridiculous things can happen in any given episode because of this and it does NOT work well. All it does is give the writers more excuses not to go deeper into character and story development.
Quinn and Puck caring about their baby at all? That's a real WTF? to what the writers were thinking. Is it their attempt to develop Quinn's personality? Because it comes off as a sad ploy to add more bumpy and unrealistic drama to the show.
Puck's reaction and development, even if brought on by this weird return of Idina Menzel is actually more believable. Cory Monteith dancing? Not so much.
Overall i liked the episode but have to agree with what some of you said.
Quinn is just getting ridiculous, one minute she’s a punk rebel and the next she’s back to normal. What the heck happened to her anyways during the summer that made her so miserable? Random!
I loved Brittany as usual.
I’m starting to think that they’re overdoing it with the gay theme.
And totally off topic in this episode but where the heck is Karofsky?
Well, Quinn is not back to normal. She is only pretending.
I missed out a lot on the second season, so maybe I'm not exactly too tired of some of the things you guys are, but I do like that Finn is getting less airtime, but he did say in the starting he has no idea what to do for his future. Mercedes is getting a bigger role in the next episode, it seems....
I have never seen Blaine as really being a good choice of a boyfriend for Kurt. The painful truth is that Kurt is a very jealous and competitive individual, and this has played out even within his relationships with the others in the New Directions, and it was very apparent in the Warblers.
Kurt and Blaine are both equally talented, but Blaine has a more marketable sort of talent than Kurt. Blaine cannot just play straight, he is actually good at flirting with his female audiences. Blaine understands that when he is performing it is all about the audience, not about him. This is something any successful performer knows.
With Kurt, the performance is all about him, and he is often almost oblivious to his audience. Aside from the fact that Kurt simply cannot bury his own personality enough to, for example, play a straight romantic role (which Blaine can), he often actively rejects playing the roles he auditions for. One does not audition for the role of Tony in West Side Story by singing Barbra or doing Shakespeare! Kurt, determined to showcase his preferences in music and theater more than audition for the actual role, went completely off-script and shot straight out of the genre entirely!
Therein lay the problem.
Blaine is likely to do better at getting the kinds of roles that Kurt wants because, unlike Kurt, he has decided not to proactively typecast himself. He is prepared to play someone other than himself. Kurt is too determined to inject himself into his roles that he may not be qualified for those roles.
Burt's advice was really quite apt. If Kurt wants to be the guy who wears a kilt to the prom, and does not ever want to compromise on his individuality, then he is going to have to write his own roles. That is going to limit his opportunities in theater and, ultimately, will probably set him on a career path to becoming a choreographer, writer or director rather than a star perfomer. At least until and unless he can make a name for himself. Blaine is the kind of pop star type that teenage girls hang posters of on their walls. He will always have more mass-market appeal than Kurt.
Which is where I see a problem. Rachel is confident in her relationship with Finn because a) he is less talented than she is, and b) they will almost never be competing for the same roles.
Kurt and Blaine, however, will be competing for roles. It was kind of stupid that Kurt thought that Blaine coming to McKinley would make them less competitive than if Blaine were at Dalton. There is barely enough air in the music room for Kurt and Rachel's egos on a good day! Start adding more competition to the New Directions and it is a recipe for conflict.
Could Kurt ever be happy if Blaine became a pop star while Kurt was working off-off-Broadway theater? My sense is that no, he could not. He is not the type who can cope well with being in second. He did not handle it well with the Warblers and I do not see it working in adult life either.
They are a cute couple, but to me they seem like a doomed one.
Well, for much of last season, Quinn's focus was on finding her way back to the top of the social pyramid. Having given birth and given the baby up for adoption, she was trying to resume the life she had always aspired to. The life she had dieted and exercised and gotten a nose job for. Becoming junior prom queen was all about validating her self-image and self-esteem. It was about denying the bad things that had happened to her and avoiding the pain by improving her life again.
But she didn't win, she has not regained her popularity and New Directions did not even place well at Nationals. Her effort to put her life back on track did not work out.
The problem is that all of this happened last season, so it is easy to lose sight of the continuity (and this is a rare case of there being such a thing on Glee). Quinn ended the season with nothing. No crown, no boyfriend, no victory. So she crashed and became a burnout. Now she wants her baby back because, frankly, what else has she got?
I never did see that "Prom Queen" episode. Who won? XD
I'm just coming into this thread, so this has probably been brought up before, but here is my main problem with Glee: there are certain decisions made for the sake of comedy that tarnish how I see the show. One thing, which I've seen mentioned, is that Sue should be behind bars. But the show wants to keep that thread going, so I'm forced to see Glee as this alternative reality where there just isn't any enforced authority. It's a similar problem with the show choir contests. The performances themselves are professionally executed, but then we go to the judges' room and the scene is a full on satire, as well as a conduit for cameos, which we end up not really caring for because the judges are immature, self-absorbed, and just entirely incompetent overall. And whatever humor may come out of it, I think it's ill-advised; it makes the competitions look like a farce, and completely spoils the merits of the New Directions' success (or any other group for that matter).
I'm really disappointed in the music so far this season.
I just got around to watching this weeks episode -
Not only was it so-so (Quinn suddenly wanting the baby, etc) but the number with Kurt was so over the top... He wants to play Tony in West Side Story but he auditions as Streisand???)
But what really tells me what I think of the show this season is that it took me 4 days to get around to watching it.
I thought this was the best so far this season.
The Asian F thing, believe me I get it.................I lived It!!! The show has never really had much Reality to it but at times tapped into some good ideas. Unfortunately , there never has been much follow thru on them or maybe that has always been the charm.
I love Brittany. She is so funny - I find her dumbness endearing and she, the actor, is really talented! She playes the part so well and damn she can dance!!!
I think this was one of the best episodes in quite sometime and I loved the Dreamgirls analogy of Rachel and Mercedes it really does fit they way those two in particular have been shown the entire series.
This week's episode was just ok. I'm still so underwelmed with it. I do like seeing more of Harry though.
Loved the Dreamgirls number. It paralleled Effie and Mercedes life stories really well.
They did a good job of giving the supporting cast some facetime/storylines/musical numbers. That's something a lot of fans have criticized about it.
Loved the episode. Had to skip afew parts as usual (like Mike Chang dancing with no music) but I liked the ep.
Mercedes is pretty much a fat and black Rachel. She thinks she's this diva who deserves it all, they're not different.
And I suddenly find Mike Chang super hot. Always thought he was but now I can't get my eyes off him.
Glee's so camp.
Well...that was another disappointing and annoying episode. You bring in the new guy who had a pretty good voice, and you auto-tune the shit out of it. I don't recall Damian ever being able to do falsetto in the competition.
Then the story with Brittany is just getting old. It isn't funny to me anymore, it is like my Grandpa telling the same joke over and over.
And speaking of Leprechauns, when did Rick Astley join the cast of Glee? I liked his version of "It Isn't Easy Being Green", but I was so disappointed when he didn't sing "Never Gonna Give You Up". Maybe he's saving it for the finals?
And the ratings show that people are giving up on Glee...
If they don't get some good writers on the show fast it will have at most 1 more season...
uggggh...it just annoys me to no end that like the main plot of the series is "Oh the Glee club has no money...Sue's so mean and cuts our budget." yet they have new shiny costumes, props, rain, baby grands, back up singer/dancers, a jazz band always on hand...
I also hate what they are doing to Blaine...what the fuck was he wearing last night? And when are they gonna kill off Kurt....that would be the best episode ever...throw Finn in there too
It's very unfortunate what happened to Glee. I really enjoyed it, but people started complaining everywhere, so they tried to change a bunch of things and now it's boring. Being crazy and twisted is not necessarily a bad thing when you have continuity. That's what people were talking about - lack of continuity, not abundance of personality!
The only thing that could save this show, in my view, is a new pilot. Introduce the new kids in the second half of this season (with subtle hints of what's to come), graduate the old ones in the end, then open the 4th season with a kick-ass premiere, showing a new dynamic and getting the viewers excited about it.
Unless that happens, this will probably be my last season watching this show. It doesn't even feel like a Ryan Murphy show anymore. But now there's American Horror Story, so I'm not even sad. :)
^^ On top of which, how sure can we be an outfit is real? There's a whole plethora of examples of the showing doing "make believe inside reality" Take the singing in the halls for example. No one else seems to ever notice the singing, because they're not ACTUALLY singing in the halls. On some occasions I think the costume, the fake rain (on umbrella/singing in the rain) are more imagined. I find it easy to assume that if a song takes place on stage in the auditorium, but we never see an audience just the performance, it may not necessarily be "real".
Its a television show. Suspend your disbelief. no one wants to see them in dirty old rags.
This episode was just bad all over. I watched it and I just felt dirty after. I feel like a broken record but the writers ALL need to work together and not have each one write an entire episode. This show won't last past this season if they can't get their writers all on the same page.
I thought the new Irish guy was really cute, but seeing him getting bullied really irritated me. The remainder of the episode was a bit bland for me.
This episode sucked.
Damian (the Irish) was cute at first but then really annoying (why the fuck was he smiling all the time?)
Kurt's dad running against Sue and all that political crap is just boring, who gives a shit?
Songs were meh. Blaine got yet another solo. Ugh.
Brittany's stupidity can be cute but can become a pain in the ass when it's overdone (like in this episode).
I liked it.
The show is getting boring. They are just relying on bringing in new characters to make the show interesting (which in my opinion is a sucky way to do it). Just take a look at Tina/Artie, they are now even worse off than Santan/Brittany when they first started. Just a couple of lines here and there and that's it. And this season's the song choices haven't been amazing. And I do not like the Glee Project kids coming in. Focus on the existing characters. Make them useful and give them interesting storylines. It's like these characters stopped to develop and faded into the background. Sometimes I wonder what show am I actually watching. So many new characters popping up here and there. At this rate, I won't be surprised this show will get cancelled by the end of season 3.
Yeah episode 4 was boring.
But episode 5...
Ya but trout mouth is on the way back! ( Chord Overstreet)
It took me starting the show 3 times to get through it - I kept falling asleep. This last episode was so dull - and the songs sucked.
Bringing back Sam shows how they realize they are loosing viewers.
And I am glad they are bringing him back - I will keep watching to see what they do with him - but if not for that I might give up at this point.
Seeing Blaine and Kurt talk about fucking is making me gag. Ewwwww
The good: Mike and Beiste's storylines were great, as well as *spoiler*Karofsky's*spoiler*appearance at the gay bar. No "vote for Sue" silliness or "Rick Astley Jr. is a leprechaun" stupidity.
The bad: All the awkward talk about sex and virginity. The even more awkward scenes of sex that followed.
The ugly: As if the Blaine/Kurt relationship doesn't get enough drama and attention, they add an interloper into the mix. Worse, he doesn't take no or "I have a boyfriend" for an answer. Please, please, let him get hit by a bus.
The interloper is hot.... remember depending on a show put on by fox to do us gays justice is not right
I thought it was pretty hilarious, I was laughing throughout the gay scenes, especially the gay bar.
Karofsky looks old enough to be kurt's father.
Grant is hot and one of the best actors in the show so far.
Not that I should expect realism from this show, but was Finn unhappy because the Ohio State recruiter said that he wasn't good enough? I mean, I barely follow college football but even I know that's a top program. So presumably if he had a shot at an Ohio State scholarship, he should be able to get one at a lesser school.
And by the way, it was kind of creepy and inappropriate for Artie to encourage Rachel and Blaine to lose their virginity and then to discuss Beiste's romantic life.
*shrugs* I thought the Kurt and Blaine scenes weren't bad and they were cute, for the most part. I don't know what you guys are expecting or wanting. XD
I did think that Artie talking to both Rachel and Blaine AND Beiste about their virginity was stupid. >.>
Well this episode was alright...I also did not like imagining Blaine and Kurt fucking....Blaine and anyone else...sure...but no thanks with Kurt.
I don't give two shits about Rachel and Finn so whatever.
Santana was the star of this episode even though she didn't have a story line....she looked amazing in the West Side scenes and sounded even better!
Damien McGinty doing the Puerto Rican accent during West Side was very funny.
Karofsky honestly looked like an old creeper in that bar with Kurt...he looked at least 15 years older than Kurt
and also The Warblers song was the best of the night and it was just some randoms and the new "villain" singing lead.
When did Artie get to be so confident to be lecturing people about sex?
Rachel and Kurt are just annoying...
And funny - the character I care the most about is Coach Beiste...
Santana definitely was the star of the show that night. Her WSS scene was just amazing The rest of the episode just felt very flat to me. The only thing would actually make Blaine/Kurt storyline better is if the new "Warbler" (I want to say his name is Christian) decides to sway Kurt and make Blaine feel miserable. I swear, Murphy needs to add some soap opera drama to Glee instead of just insanity. Despite the gay storyline, it disappointed me that Finn and Rachel were in each other's arms while Kurt and Blaine were hugging like grade schoolers.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS Adele Mashup from next weeks show!!
There just isn't a thing I don't love about Santana
Damian McGinty is awesomely talented. He has been singing with Celtic Thunder since he was 14. You Tube has tons of their stuff. Celtic Thunder is awesome too. You will see several other guys that can sing also...|
