It was really bogus to me that Finn said he still had some feelings left for Quinn...you know what that means...they'll probably get back together eventually yuck poor Rachel, I've always rooted for her and Finn :(

Heather is a great dancer and absolutely hilarious but I found nearly all the Britney songs rather dull (found myself routing for Mr Shue and wishing they would do a lovely version of Christopher Cross's 'Sailing' instead, that song is beautiful even if all they did was mock him/it).
The beauty of other tributes they've done is that there's some humour to them.
Britney herself was as wooden as ever (can't believe they want to bring for back for the Superbowl episode, she's so boring!), and it pained me to see Lea wasting her beautiful voice on such a throw away piece of crap as '...Hit me baby' (in the past I've always said Lea makes the originals look weak compared to her covers, but this was truly awful and I don't blame Lea, she did the best with the material given and compared to her final song you really hear the difference when given a song with some soul and substance), the only saving grace was her homage to that internet video of the little boy coming home from the dentist still high on meds "Is this real life?".
Artie's version of 'Stronger' was the only decent Britney song they did, and that was just cos it wasn't taking itself seriously (anytime you have Finn trying to dance there's going to be laughs a-plenty) and there was actually some humour involved thanks to Artie (he's very good at that).
A very weak episode overall. Great production but boring to watch unless you're a Britney fan. So far this season I've not been as impressed with the material they've used.
Hopefully next week redeems them, it looks much better and Lea's going to do Streisand again (which is always fab).

You didnt miss anything really except the end of "Only Exception". The other Glee girls starting singing along, and it showed Will watching Emma and Carl and sitting alone in his car, and Finn and Rachel just looking at each other lovingly. That's about it.

@Quick_Fan the episode of next week is about Religion and Kurt's father is the hospital. It's going to be a very emotional episode.

ASDLKFJ my DVR cut off half of the last scene. Can anyone tell me what happened?? And what the episode next week is about from the promo?! BUT, all in all, I LOVED it. However, I wish it wasn't only those select characters that sang. There should have been more group numbers...

so, first reaction? the last scene saved the whole episode. It's nice to hear song from my childhood/teenage years, but using them in the plot would have been great (like they did with the Madonna tribute). Anyway, it was a good episode and I was happy to see some Finchel!!!

Glee Quotes

Beiste: Dr. Jones said the new end of world date is September 27, 2014
Brittany: That gives us like two whole years of giving love and brutal honesty to everyone we know.

It's not the broken dreams that break us. It's the ones we don't dare to dream.
