The Christmas episode was lame as hell. I don't think we need anymore of those.
^ Best part of the episode was Mercedes singing All I want for Christmas is you. Everything after, I thought was lame or sooo fricking cheesy.
Looking for inspiration
If Artie was a true geek, he'd know that the Star Wars Holiday Special was an abomination that heralded the apocalypse and the coming of the Four Horsemen.
HOLY SHIT! Glee was fucking awesome tonight!
The songs were amaze-balls!
The plot actually advanced! And made sense!
There was character development! Sue is becoming more than a one-dimensional bitch!
Speaking of one-dimensional bitches, Nene Leakes makes her Glee debut!
Becky's inner monologue was the the funniest thing since Fondue For Two!
Blaine and Kurt were kept at a minimum! BONUS!
Excuse me while I change pants and scrub my carpet...
I quite enjoyed as well.
The only glaring flaw I noticed in tonight's episode is that at the Finn intervention, Kurt was noticeably absent from that. You would think that as his step-brother, he would be in attendance of something like that.
I understand the whole fantastical aspect of the show but Schu asking Finn to be his best man is a bit of a stretch. Does Schu really have no other friends outside of school? I really hope Rachel says no to Finn and he dumps her over this and then goes to join the army because his heart his broken. See JUB, soap opera drama is real easy to write.
Random aside: Kudos to the prop department! I saw in Mr. Schu's office my old high school Spanish text "Paso a Paso 3". If you forgot, he teaches Spanish. Adding to that, who the fuck keeps dressing up Blaine in possibly the ugliest outfits for a young man to be wearing. Really, a seafoam v-cut cardigan sweater? I gagged on that.
I thought Rachel's "Without You" was actually really good....and only Glee can make Rihanna's "We Found Love" make me cry...lol
the rest of the ep was pretty good...Helen Mirren as Becky's inner monologue was fantastic
this ep along with "Asian F" were the best episodes of the whole season.
Also it was announced tonight that Rachel's dads have been cast: http://www.tvline.com/2012/01/glee-s...jeff-goldblum/
The songs were good.. Becky was unreal.. The proposal was ridiculous as fuck (anyone else notice mercedes being mysteriously gone from it? I guess they didnt want her in a bathing suit and being black and throwing the whole thing off) I hate Schue so much. but love Emma
"Summer Nights" had us on our feet whooping and clapping, and the rest of the episode was up to par. Loved everything about it.
That was the first episode I have ENJOYED in a long time!
Nice to see Sue not a total psycho bitch!
And anytime Sam is shirtless is a plus!
Does anyone realize that nobody on the show is or has friends? What I mean by this is everybody hates them because they're in glee club so all they have is each other and the only members that are friends are Kurt and Rachel. Nobody hangs out or spends time together(Non-couples) unless it's as the glee club or for an assignment.
Side Note: I'm always happy to get a song by Emma
"Yes/No" was hands down amazing. Very story driven, more realistic, shirtless Sam with a mention to his nipples and, the best part of the whole episode: Becky. It broke my heart to see her after she ended up things with Artie, and knowing that's she's fully aware of who she is and her chances in life...awwwww. That made the whole episode worth it, I almost cried.
Good television (and especially "great" television, which died in the 90s) takes an entire season to explore character development, usually leading up to a "very special episode" that presents a character in a different light after a very strong story shift.
Glee's problem is that it seems so desperate, so worried that it may not last another season or get a chance to shove in all its arcs, that it does so at breakneck speed. Characters are pushed around like chess pieces, there is no respect for the parameters that get set, and none of the reveals are earned. Characters personalities or objectives are completely unrecognizable from one episode to the next. Just an endless series of nonsequiturs.
Yes, I agree that Sue's maniacal evilness got old in season 1, but these sudden weird left-field revisions of her character strike me as nothing more than different writers handling her in different ways, with little to no regard for how this comes off in the finished product.
GLEE CASTING NEWS!
Matt Bomer from White Collar is in talks to play Blaine's older brother!
I hope that Matt Bomer casting rumour is true.
"I'm chanting even as we speak, sweetie!"
I got through two minutes of tonight's episode and turned it off it was that insufferable. Never have I had the urge to punch Darren Criss' smug face until now.
Tonight's episode was pretty damn bad. a)too much Artie singing b)what the fuck was that Scream video? c)Really? A slushie attack?
The only thing that saved the episode for me was once again Santana...her songs were good and she had that great little section talking to Kurt
I wanted to punch Kurt many times during this episode...from the very beginning in that leather jumpsuit and giant fur hat and that horrible t-rex dancing he does...to him gyrating his hips in the auditorium part of "Wanna Be Starting Something" and that horrible rendition of "Ben" and his weird baby teeth/no lips combo in the ridiculous "Black or White" morphing scene...ugh
I wanted to bitch slap Rachael so bad. When Kurt told her the good news about his entry to NYADA, she HAD to make it about her and whine about not getting accepted...despite not getting any letters saying such. Lo and behold, she gets her acceptance letter the very next day.
And marrying Finn? There are dozens of reasons why so should have said no.
It was nice to see Santana feed that asshole a huge slice of humble pie with a big cup of kiss my ass.
I have to say that I now love Sebastian. the only thing keeping me from loving him before was his love of blaine.. now that that is over I like him a whole lot more.. smooth criminal was so good. and everytime he is so rude to kurt my heart smiles
In regards to Sue, if you go back to season one when they introduced her late sister, you would have seen a different side to Sue. Jane Lynch has had some really good episodes when they stop treating her like a lunatic, like the episode when her sister passed away, when they introduced Becky when she tried out for Cheer, when she replied to Shue when he was nervous what she would say when Becky had her audition, "What do you want me to treat her differently" mean she would be mean and nasty like she is to all the girls. The episode last week with Becky, just great.
This weeks episode was crap. I ended up fast forwarding though most of the songs - I am not much of a Michael Jackson fan and these versions were shit.
All I could think of when they asked "What Would Michael Jackson Do?" is - well I won't go into details but it involves Macaulay Culkin and the chimp...
I did not really care for last night's show.
I FF'd through most the songs because they were dreadful and even the plot was dreadful. I did stop to listen to Black and White because it was apparently my first favorite Michael song according to my mom.
I think Darren Criss has much potential for a career (and a few others as well) as a singer/actor but hanging around Glee any longer will stunt that growth severely. Adding to that, Chris Colfer is a horrible interviewer. I saw him on Leno this week and I dunno if Leno didn't preempt the questions but he was very flustered by them and seemed fidgety.
I liked Santana on "Smooth Criminal" and the Sam/Mercedes duet on "Human Nature". But the rest was just AWFUL. Mike is spinning in his grave.
I mean, Kurt singing "Ben"? A love song about a rat? REALLY?
If they had Santana singing "Dirty Diana" to Brittnay, I would have lost my damn mind. 8^)
I cringed the whole way through this episode.
Heard that Ricky Martin will play a Spanish teacher on next week's episode.
Can't wait until Gloria Estefan shows up as Santana's mom. Having grown up in Miami, Gloria is the patron saint of us gay hispanics. If she and Santana do a duet, my prostate will explode.
I never use to ff the show like I do now, I probably get in a good 30mins only
As I believe, anyone with flourish-able talent on this show needs to jump ship after this season. Hanging around any longer and their talent will be stunted: fuck the money if you have a brain! Even seeing reviews for Criss in "how to succeed in business etc.", they said that he has potential but he needs to grow more.
yup yup, glee is my favorite thing to watch,, especially after u've smoked a lil weed, haha, the songs are always stuck in my head, and puck's the hottest there, well sam now also haha with that big trouty mouth of his
I actually kinda liked the music this week...
just watched it .........
unwatchable IMO for most of it
Blinded by a slushy?
Why was Finn wearing a football jersey for the opening MJ # when everyone else was in MJ outfits?
But I do think Sebastian is a hottie - and sorta like him ........... BAD
Grant is a hottie but too bad he said in an interview he isn't gay.
MJ numbers were awesome. The storyline was a bit interesting but kind of stupid.
I liked tonight's glee. Again, Santana keeps getting better and better. About time the spicy latina called Shu out on being an incompetent SoB. Didn't really care for Ricky Martin. I rolled my eyes a bit because I had a friend in college named David Martinez but a little sad he didn't pronounce David the Spanish way.
