"The Spanish Teacher" received much hype from the cast and fans in preparation for Ricky Martin’s arrival. I have never been a huge fan of his, nor did I take Spanish in any level of school (took French from Middle School through College) making tonight’s episode hard to get into. I understand what they were trying to achieve with this episode, and think it was a great idea, just for me personally it wasn’t one of my favorites.
"Yes/No" was Glee’s first episode back from winter break. While it was a okay episode, as the first one back from some time off, it was relatively uneventful, despite having several storylines. The entire episode surrounded Will and Emma as they work on taking their relationship to the next level. Aside from the main Wemma plot, the rest of the episode was all over the place and a little unbelievable, even for Glee.
The Magic is Back…
… and Finn has character.
Review, recap, random thoughts, after the break.
Glee is back and so is Sue Sylvester’s rage toward the Arts and Glee club. Now she is taking her stand statewide as she runs for Ohio Congress!
To start, lets just get some housekeeping out of the way.
Seniors: Rachel, Finn, Kurt, Mike, Santana, Brittany, Quinn, Mercedes
Juniors: Artie, Tina
Sam is gone; his dad got a job and his family moved.
Lauren is out of Glee club; it’s not cool enough for her.
Wemma is on. As are Finchel, Klaine, and the Asians.
While the episode may have surrounded Nationals, to me the most beautiful, honest and best moment of the episode and the series surrounded the anticipated duet by Lea Michele and Chris Colfer, “For Good.” To say that these two young artists are talented would be the understatement of the century. I can’t even stand how perfect they are separately. Forget about when they’re together. Sometimes I wish Kurt wasn’t gay because Kurt and Rachel are so perfect, but I enjoy them together as good friends. I wish after Glee, and Kurt and Rachel are graduated and a new cast enters the picture, Fox would either do a spin-off or a TV movie surrounding Kurt and Rachel moving to New York City together. Just picturing it in my head is the most amazing thing. Can you imagine all the things they would do? I really think it could be amazing. (If you like the idea of a Kurt & Rachel spinoff please sign my petition, thanks)
After the break for my thoughts on the rest of the episode… as if there was anything that could even touch “For Good.”
Witty,dramatic, beautiful and heartbreaking all describe tonight’s Glee episode entitled Funeral. It was a very well done episode and manage to bring various elements and emotions throughout.
My favorite part about this episode: the Kinn/Furt scenes. Finally, these two were in the same scene(s) and acknowledged each other. Its been too long. We got a moment of brief interaction last week but I felt more fulfilled this week. My only major complaint about tonight’s episode is the lack of continuation from last week, mostly in regards to Kurt being crowned Prom Queen. I felt they should have acknowledged that it happened. I feel like Glee has been jumping a head in time a lot recently, and I feel like we are missing a lot of potential storylines. I know they are trying to keep the timing of the story with the course of an actual year, but why? The original cast is amazing there is no need to rush them to graduation. Why not make Nationals in December and tell more stories about the characters troubles and other problems or just everyday life for them. More has to happen then preparing for competition. (Mostly I just don’t want Season 3 to be the end of the original cast. I’m going to miss them so so much.)
Review and thoughts on song choices after the break. (Spoilers)
My first review of Glee! I originally wasn’t planning on reviewing Glee because I was afraid of how reviewing it might reflect how I feel about the show later. I really love Glee and the characters in the show. I’m not a huge fan of musicals but I do like some, while I think some others are over the top. I think Glee is the perfect fit because it mixes pop culture with the musical form. Something other series have tried to do in the past but failed.
I guess tonight’s episode is the perfect example of pop culture taking over. Usually every week there is some theme to the songs or at least part of the songs. Tonight’s was, the one and only, Justin Bieber. Personally I can not stand him. I don’t think he is that talented and I also don’t think he has a great personality. From interviews I’ve seen/read and hearing about him from other people, he seems kind of stuck up, full of himself and cocky (basically all the same, but felt the need to list all).
Anyways, the episode began with Sam (Chord Overstreet) singing a cover of “Baby” to impress his girlfriend, Quinn (Dianna Agron).
