Glee > Glee Review: Drinking, Vomiting, Tik Toking... > Comments Page 3
Oh and I didn't care for the rest of the episode either. Felt too forced and ALL the characters were annoying (need a least one likeable one). I enjoyed Becky and the xylophone, Tina and Mercedes being happy drunks, Brittany puking on Rachel and Mercedes reaction to Brittany's comment at the end, other than that didn't like it at all. Hopefully next week will be better. It seems lately we get one good ep and then 2-3 bad ones before it redeems itself again, that's getting beyond annoying (never happened in season 1). >:(
So disappointed, I have been waiting for another epic Artie/Mercedes duet (since 'Proud Mary') and when they finally sing together and it's cruddy 'Blame It On The Alcohol' (one of the worst songs I've ever heard in my life!)?!! I still hold out hope of them doing a duet and helping NDs win regionals. Music this episode was dreadful and I can't believe I'm going to say it but I actually preferred Justine Bieber song selection!!!
@Ella: I still enjoy the show. I think I make that clear in my reviews. I'm a critic and my job is to analyze. Sometimes, that means picking apart the aspect of which I'm not a fan.
If you think GLEE is too preachy, why do you (still) watch it @ the person who has written the review? Every other time you say the episode was too preachy. My God, so what? Get over it already.
I loved the episode, the songs were amazing and I don't have a problem with teenage tv shows that are "preachy". I liked the outcome of this episode, that kids hopefully do the right thing by themselves.
And I'm so in love with Blaine, he could sing every song and that'd be alright with me. :D Great episode!
totally agree Lex.
Dont forget that Kurt had his own Hetero stage (he dated Brittany in an ep).
@bellefille me too! I'd love a cat fight between the two and Quinn just HAS to win Sam back! I hate him and Santana together!
I didn't like the preachiness in this episode... It was seriously pissing me off! But other then that I sorts liked the episode all together. I felt the party scene should have been longer and that. For once Kurt really pissed me off with the talk with his dad I mean I was totally on his dad's side, I Finn had a girl over it would have also been unacceptable so he shouldn't have been all mad. Some people can only wish for a dad that great! Also love seeing the different types of drunks (but they only showed the girls what's up with that?)
Everyone was hilarious in this episode, especially Santana and Rachel. :D I loved Finn's archetypes of all of the types of drunks! And Santana's reactions to her blondes making out in spin-the-bottle was priceless. And Artie's soo funny when he's hungover.
However IMO the Blaine/Kurt bisexuality argument was pretty offensive, especially when Kurt said bisexuality is "what gay guys label themselves as in high school to feel normal." Don't really want to get into that right now. Here's hoping Santana's upcoming bisexuality storyline will redeem this episode.
totally agree!! Quinn is a really good character, and doesn't get enough credit. I always love her storylines and want her to fight Santana ;)
I loved the episode. When I first saw the songs they were going to do earlier in the week I said: "Tik Tok? Really?" but then Heather Morris (Brittany) nailed it and it was a great coregraphy. I loved Rachel lines. It made up for the fact that Sue didn't get very good lines to me and Britanny and that racist things at the end was hillarious.
Abour the Blaine and Kurt thing - I enjoyed it. I think Kurt and Blaine will eventually end up together and yeah I thought it was kinda odd that Rachel might be interested in his friend's wanna-be boyfriend but I really liked the chemistry between Blaine and Rachel.
And then the jealusy thing with Quinn, staring at Sam and Santana. That was great because that proves that Quinn really loves Sam. I want them to get back together but I want Quinn to deserve Sam and try to redime herself for everything she's done.
So Overall, I loved the episode. This is the kind of episode that when is about to end I look at the time and I say: "This is th
I wish there was more Finn/Quinn. I felt bad for her during the whole episode watching Sam be a douche! She looked so sad :(
I hope they continue her storyline next week. it'd be dumb if she and Sam broke up over Finn and now they don't even like each other anymore.
I thought it was an overall good episode. While it may have had a few PSA type c
Qualities to it I thought it kept it tame compared to what it could be. I loved the opening Puck and Rachel scene, because any scene with them together is off the charts. I also loved Finn describing the different drunk types to Rachel right up until he said he hated how she was being needy and no one likes that. He's annoying at this point.
ok everyone must stop complaying I loooooooveed the party time I mean after that part i almost didnt see the rest because i wenT to pee and then I keep remembering mercedes and tina laughing and I was like holly cow this actually DO happens in private house parties with close friends
Okay, so here is what I thought. While the convulution of the PSA preachy, there are definite dangers in alcohol was ridiculous and kind of cliche, it has a point and maybe it's Glee just trying to do it's thing to keep people happy. Or at least parents happy.
Now, on to the good stuff. The Kurt/Blaine/Rachel thing. I think Kurt was completely off the wall in this episode. I love Kurt to death and I underrstand that flying off the handle when it comes to things that relate to sexuality, Kurt is more vocal about. I have no problem with that. However, I really think it was wrong of Kurt to attack Blaine like that. Blaine being gay or not does not change the message Blaine has portrayed. Blaine has been nothing but honest with Kurt and Kurt flew off the handle the second Blaine mentioned he might want to have a heterosexual relationship. However, it's not any of the comments about that really annoyed me. The one comment, I thought, as a proud Bisexual, was really off
Well, I am bisexual myself, but I didn't actually take offense to Kurt's statement. I can understand how he came to that conclusion, considering the fact that he's never questioned his own sexuality, and was seriously upset when he said it. Also, the kid's sixteen, he's going to do say things he shouldn't. It's realistic that he'd say something along those lines.
I think it was more upsetting for me with the way Blaine and Rachel treated him. (And I'm not saying he's a helpless victim, because we all know he can be bitchy, but they were wrong.)
Rachel knows how much he likes Blaine. SHE WAS AT THE DEPRESSING 'BLAINE LIKES GAP GUY' SLEEPOVER, AFTER ALL! It wasn't something a good friend would do, to ask him out.
And excuse me, Blaine? Remember how a few weeks back, Kurt told you he liked you? Did it ever occur to you that that might be influencing his outburst?
Seriously, Blaine leads him on constantly. I honestly doubt he's doing it on purpose, he's just so oblivious to how
To all those who are saying that it glorified drinking
I'm a teen who never wants to even LOOK at alchol again after that episode
...maybe it also has something to do with the fact that a friend of my parents 19 year old son died from drunk swimming a few weeks back..
The show DID have a point: You can't stop teens drinking... Just teach them the dangers in way they still understand they can have fun and they will listen.
After the incident, My parents told me to never be as stupid as that... but they were waaaay to preachy it was glee that actually got the message across to me...
The way I see it, there's just no way Glee could've won with this issue. As it stands it came out preachy, but are people actually complaining that it didn't have more severe consequences? That would have been just as bad as one of those car crash movies we had to endure in high school(and who actually enjoyed those?) Fact is,if every teen who drank in high school ended up with alcohol poisoning, or got in a car crash, there almost be none left. In the context of the show, the Glee kids were hardly going to do harm to one another, and they had the presense of mind to avoid driving.
Truth of the matter is, a wicked hangover and drunken kisses is pretty much run of the course for a majority of parties. This doesn't negate the very real dangers of underage drinking, but Glee is supposed to be an entertaining musical dramedy, not a PSA (though the lines are unfortunately blurred between the two.)
The songs were fun, and I'm glad the Blaine/Kurt/Rachel scenario worked out for everyon
ok, everyone who is like, 'they're condoning teen drinking', maybe you should face reality. teenagers drink, and honestly, there is nothing particuarly bad about it. yes, it is illegal, but most of you live in a country where, at 21, half of the college students are drinking illegally. to pretend like drinking isn't fun, and only ends in horror is naive, and the same process as abstience only. I like that they showed that whilst kids sometimes look like idiots, most people who drink, don't end up raped, or alcoholics. Most people have fun, and that's ok. I like that it was AT LEAST realistic, instead of, santana's a slut, and rachel's a prude and there's no-one in between. realism ftw
I thought the show could have been even preachier, and I was surprised that they didn't really show any real consequences of underage drinking besides hangovers and throwing up. I too felt the show may have condoned drinking more than condemned it, and they used the statistics and Will's pledge as a way to cover up this fact.
@ama: hahaha, "Jewish American princess" or "Jap" is a term used for a Jewish girl who's spoiled, high-maintanence, and used to getting her way. In other words, Rachel Berry to a T. :)
@Jeany: Yes! This absolutely glorified drinking Glad I am not the only one who thinks this. Basically, the only thing that the glee club learned was not to drink if you are going to go out and do some strenuous dancing. Will was basically a hypocrite the entire episode, I mean yes he is allowed to drink and get drunk he is over 21 and can be mature about it, BUT then he carries on and preaches to the glee club against it? This episode went into far left field and let drinking look like harmless fun when there are serious consequences to it. The show threw out some, be safe message at the end but let the whole episode overshadow this. Oh also Kurt's assumption that Bi-sexual is only a term for boys in school afraid to come out of the closet is kind of offending to those that are Bi. I would like this show to stop preaching so that we can actually enjoy an episode where people are all on the same page. I do love glee but i am a bit disappointed. But there is always next week
I don't feel like this episode really sent the message to not drink. I also felt like it glorified underage drinking a little. But in general, I liked it becuase it made me laugh, which is what the show is supposed to do. However, what I didn't like? The fact that Rachel asked Blaine out in the first place. She's Kurt's friend and she knows that Kurt likes Blaine. Friend's aren't supposed to do that and I wish that that had at least been addressed.
I give it a 2. I thought is was ugh!!!!!!!!!!! Didn't care for any of the songs.Sorry. Yes it made its message but that is all.
Didn't mind much about the preaching against alcohol, it's to be expectedon TV and this has to be my fav ep since the show started again. I really DID mind Kurt saying that bisexuals were just teenage gay people pretending to appear normal. So much for accepting diversity and accepting people as they are, eh?
very disappointed with this episode. teenage drinking is ILLEGAL. as in punishable by law. it's going to happen but this episode glorified it. im in a counseling grad program and we just saw a video of all the dangers of drinking too much at parties, drunk driving, rape, violence. just so disappointed.
