Glee Music: "Brittany/Britney"

by at . Comments

As I made clear in my review, I really disliked this week's episode of Glee. It didn't feel like anything more than a few unrelated plot developments sprinkled around a Britney Spears play list.

Making Like Britney

That said... I do love Britney Spears songs! I wish there had been more of an organic feel to their use on the episode, but I've already downloaded a bunch of covers from last night. Browse through them in our Glee music section and check out the selections below:

The ratings just came in. This episode gathered 13,3 million viewers, 4% more than the 1st episode of Season. The highest ratings so far for this show. Britney being one the most popular pop singer and icon in her own right, I do expect double viewers than the first episode. Season 2 episode 1 gathered 20% more viewers compare from Season 1. This second episode gathered only 4% added from the first episodes 20%. This is not high considering they promoted Brittany/Britney episode much, much more and way ahead before the Episode 1 even began. Honestly, I expected a much more higher percentage. Think how much money they are paying for these big names to use their songs and their few seconds cameo role for the show. If not for Britneys name the storyline of this episode was so flat. It´s too boring! Only the songs are flattering. If we are going to analyze it, the show is actually "successful and even cheaper" if they concentrate to write a good story, a good dialoge lines and bring back Chord Overstreet and Charice to open the story of rivalry, to begin with.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
