Isn't the episode titled, 'Funeral'?
Isn't the episode titled, 'Funeral'?
Well I read that Quinn apparently dies, which is why she can't win prom queen...'cause her ass is dead.
Hmmm...I kind of like having Kurt in the Warblers...because I know most of his singing will be background singing. Anyone know what the status of Darren Criss in the show? I imagine it would be hard to write him in completely, unless he transferred to McKinley.
^Pretty much everyone is betting that Darren will transfer to McKinley, given how succesfull Darren is making the songs, but there are rumors of a Warblers spin-off.
Glee's version of Born This Way is out on iTunes.
Just thought I'd leave this around here
Sweet Jesus in Heavan thank you, Glee finally did original songs. I have been hoping for this for a loong time as sometimes covers do not show how good of a voice the actor have. OK I know I'm behind bhut I really wanted to praise the wrietrs of Glee. They took a leaf outa Joss Weadon's book and it worked.
My one down side is that it is getting waaaay too chessey, yes we have heavey drama showing what the world cane be like but seriously is there really a need for the moral speeches and everything's rosey all the time.
"Flipping Dykes I though they were a myth like Weapons of Mass Destruction" Grace Adler.
It seems that Finn and Quinn breakup and Finn sings "I Gotta Be Me" and Quinn and the girls sing a mash/up of "I Feel Pretty/ Unpretty.
I don't know what's wrong with me but this is the second week in a row I forgot about Glee. But thank goodness it was an hour and a half tonight because I managed to catch the last 30 mins! >_< I liked that Emma didn't take the pills for her OCD and I wish I could have seen everyone else's dislikes about themselves.
And I liked the rehearsal for Born This Way I can't wait when they actually perform!
I feel sad that instead of out bar hopping on vacation, I stayed in and watched glee with friends (fending off homphobic comments which added some situational irony from tonight's episode). Tonight's episode was decent but did not like the Born This Way cover at all. I already said Criss sucked singing Keene. Was it just me or did Colfier remind anyone else of Ariel singing "Part of Your World" when he did what I assume was an original song?
The psuedo-flash mob was interesting but meh; bad techno with "Striesand" repeated killed it. There was a lot of plot on this episode but if the teaser is any indication, hopefully we will maybe see Chord do some "gay acting".
If I wasn't posting this from my phone I would link an article but im sure a quick google search of "Heather Morris leaving Glee" would work also
I didn't like A Night OF Neglect. I thought it was pretty boring...
I'm hoping tonight's episode is better!
4/26 Episode....Born this way number....OK....The T- shirts they were wearing were supposed to say something about themselves they didn't like...Kurt's said 'LIKES BOYS' that kind of pissed me off...each week like Santana more and more....Plus- they are supposed to be the least popular and most hated group in school, yet 3 of the girls are running for Prom Queen- you could only sell 6 tickets to your last show and people are going to vote for you.....reality never factors into this shit, does it?
All the variations of "Heather Morris leaving Glee" (Brittany leaving Glee) have turned up nothing on Google. Show us a source maxpwr9 if you'd be so kind.
I enjoyed tonight's ep...except for all the singing Kurt did and that stupid/pointless "Barbara Streisand" mall dance
favorite Santana line: "The only straight I am is straight up bitch"
and yeah aagold...I didn't really understand most of the t-shirts...
I really liked this episode, but Kurt singing "As If We Never Said Goodbye" was incredibly awkward.
I like the song in context in Sunset Boulevard, but on glee it was kind of creepy. I can't really explain it, but something about it just didn't work for me.
I don't know...I didn't really find the episode funny or...well, anything. Kind of boring. Definitely not worth 90 minutes either, a lot of that could have been cut.
Kurt saying, "I'll never say goodbye to you" to Blaine made me choke up.
I'm happy I watched it online for less commercials. The episode is only 56 minutes long...a normal episode is like 42 to 45...10 extra minutes of tv with 20+ of commercials for this extra "half hour"
that said...I love this episode and I think it's now my favorite episode.
1) I identify with Dave Karofsky. I was so far in the closet til I was 20 the christmas presents were looking for me. I was an ass and a bully. I understand the self hate the character has but I took the self hate to an even worse level then he has on the show. The actor portraying him is doing a great job, anyone catch his face at the end when he's sitting with Santana? I know that look. I've looked like that before. Its when you're so scared to admit to yourself that you might be gay but you can't fight it anymore. David's character isn't fueled by hate anymore but he's terrified and feeling hopeless and alone.
2) Quinn/Lucy. Her in the 8th grade? Me. This was before I even found out I liked guys and after. I was 300 pounds, I hated myself and everyone around me. I had no real friends to speak of. So I changed everything like she did but minus the surgery. Only cause I couldn't afford it and my parents would never have let me. I became utterly fake and ashamed of who and what I used to be. Thankfully I couldn't move away so I still have friends who knew me before the change. I can see myself in Quinn as she's going to revisit "Lucy". The two will merge and she will be happy with herself (notice the hair during "Born this way").
3) Emma. I once had an ex-gf who told me she was taking pills for anxiety/personality stuff (It was 5 years ago, forgive me for not remembering). She asked me if she was really being herself if these meds were to change her personality. I told her "The person you are is the person you choose to be. If you choose to take these pills because you want to be this person and you like being this person. Thats who you are". I still stand by this. If they came out with some "straight pill" and someone wanted to be that person and took that medication to be that person. Thats the person they are (edit: though I don't endorse this and personally wouldnt take them).
We all have a lot in our past, I know I'm ashamed of a lot of it. But for the past 3 years I've finally liked who I am and I'm completely honest with myself and others. I'm happy with my life.
wow, totally didnt mean for this to become so long...I guess i just wanted to say how much this episode actually meant to me
^ There's a difference between accepting who you are and requiring medication. Her situation is literally debilitating...she requires medication. The diabetes/insulin comparison fell completely flat.
I'm on medication for OCD as well. I wouldn't change it for the world. Taking 30+ minutes to clean a shower stall before showering every day affected my life. Don't kid yourself. It has nothing to do with 'self acceptance'.
I liked this episode. And I thought that Darren's cover of Somewhere only we know was good.
The t-shirts confused me too. Anyone notice that Harry Shum was wearing "Can't Sing"? So why the hell is he on Glee...just for those annoying dance moves and bad acting?
yes, as I've read more about it...I understand more- pity the show/writing itself couldn't do that.....
as for Karofsky...I understand that some gay kids are so far in the closet they act out and hurt other gay kids...I feel sorry for them on some levels- but not all...if I found out any of the guys who bullied me in school were gay- I would not forgive them- it was agony and hell that absolutley NO excuse can justify or rectify- I missed nearly 30 days of school one year because of bullying- if you missed over 30, you failed- I was willing to nearly fail 8th grade to get away from these assholes- no apology will EVER make up for that.
what are you guys talking about? The t-shirts made sense. they wear whatever word/phrase that they hate about themselves. Quinn put Lucy Caboosy on her t-shirt because she hated her childhood image. Harry Shum's character can't sing so that's a part that he doesn't like about himself (especially being in the Glee club).
embrace the characteristics that you hate...that was the message of the episode.
so- Kurt hates that he likes boys...???? That's the problem people are having- 1 meant one thing, another was the the opposite
Aren't you guys paying attention? The T-Shirts are about the things that kids hated about themselves but learned to accept it. Kurt in early season one wasn't out and probably slightly in denial, granted that it was long time ago, but it makes sense in context.
I totally agree, BlueLantern. Kurt probably feels the same exact way you did, aagold76. Just because you have thoughts that you hate Kurt because he dislikes the fact he likes boys, is totally contradictory. He hates it for the fact that you cannot choose who you like, nor love. Yes, he was "in-the-closet" for part/most of season 1. However, he has embraced the fact that no matter what he'll get picked on; though, he'll always be a better person because he's not the bully. See, personally during High School I felt pity for myself. I never wanted to be gay. I mean, I like boys. Who the hell cares? But it did relate to self-acceptance with Kurt, because he's out and likes who he is now. Plus, if you had Darren Criss, I'm sure you would too!
you guys can't read....I have never said I dislike Kurt....one poster said they were things about themselves they hated...another said they were things they've grown to accept....my comments were to 2 different posters.....my complaint is with the show's writers for not making things more clear- Sam obviously never came to accept his Trouty mouth- so that stays on the hate side....the others seemed to embrace their's, but the show was so all over the place it got confusing.
^any reason to post it besides how dashing Chris Colfer is looking?
I'm pretty sure that was the worst episode of Glee I've ever seen, and possibly one of the worst tv episodes of all time... an hour and a half of encouraging kids to accept their mediocrity and shitting on anyone trying to better themselves? that's as bad as that piece of shit "It's a Wonderful Life" movie.
Lauren may like the way she looks, but she's probably going to get diabetes and die young from weight-related problems.
The half hour of commercials didn't help it either. Admittedly I kept tuning out to watch The Voice - particularly whenever Kurt came on screen.
There was a really excellent commercial for Dan Savage's It Gets Better project during tonight's episode.
Edited to add here's the ad.

No Blaine/Darren Criss = SNOOZE ep for me.
Though Santana is awesome, and her performance of "Songbird" was beautiful!
Yeah I think they're abandoning the comedy aspect of the show. At least the second half of the season, anyway...totally lacks direction.
Anywho, I'm happy Darren Criss is a regular cast member next season.
The one thing this episode got me to do was to dust off my Fleetwood Mac songs, and I agree, Santana needs to get more solos once in a while!
The second half of this season has been sort of running round in circles and they seem to be changing relationships every other episode. I like the music, but i've not been into the show as much as i was in the first season sadly.

Hmmm. Wasn't crazy about this episode. I think that it could have been a lot better. They barely used Kristen Chenowith, and the song that she sang for her "show" was dumb.
And any solo by Artie is always horrible.
Next week with the prom looks awesome though. Looks like we will finally get our Darren Criss fix.
So in 2 weeks we find out which Glee girl dies...after watching next weeks preview...I have a feeling it could be Quinn....
I enjoyed the Sam story line...I don't watch much TV so I can't say if the current ecomony has been depicted on any shows-( I always see clips of shows where the excess and money seem to still be rolling).....Ohio has been hit pretty hard and it's good to see a depiction of that- kids don't just need to see puppy love angst and gay kids- they need to see the hardship of losing your house/etc.....
My money is still on Britney getting the axe at the end.
I'll probably stop watching the show when he becomes a regular next year, he just comes across as such a douchebag IRL and him/Kurt are total Mary Sues.
I liked all of the guys playing guitar while Artie was singing "Never Going Back Again." More for the guitar playing than the singing. I had a sudden urge to buy a guitar and learn how to play. (How hard could it be?)
