I find myself to only be dissapointed lately with glee when it comes to the core relationship of rachel and finn.
Trying to put back finn and quinn is ridiculous and unrealilistic. She cheated on him...with his best friend....and god pregnant by him....and then tried to pass it off as his...through a hot tub pregnancy...in what world would he get back with her.
And yet he couldn't forgive rachel for kissing puck after she found out that he lied to her about sleeping with santana. She was hurt and she didn't let it go further and told him right away. Yet she is the bad person?
And plus im dissapointed with the lack of Rachel singing lately...i know some people get sick of her singing all the songs but i love her songs and it is a big part of what has always made the show for me. Her version of Poker face with idina menzel is one of my favorite songs ever.
And i must say i am quite suprised with glee for missing out on an oppurtunity. They sing a justin beiber song on the show but ra
I think the entire Brittany/Santana story this episode was beatiful. They've been building up Santana's character; as of recently there's been strong hints that she hates being alone. SHe wants somebody to love (read: Brittany) but obviously she's too afraid how the world is going to treat two bisexual girls that are in love.
That's why I think this storyline needs to be explored. Believe it or not, many people, especially within the LGBT community, watch Glee for the messages, in addition to it's entertainment value. Before this episode, Glee has completely pushed aside lesbian and bisexual representation--with treating the "Brittana" relationship on a comedic level (save for Duets) and having Kurt express his disbelief in bisexuality the episode before last (which, I still cannot get get over how offensive that was).
Female teens struggling with their sexuality in the generally close-minded society that is highschool has a role model in Santana to look up to. Sure, there was Ku
I am an avid Glee fan. I have absolutely loved it since the beginning. I will say however, I was not all that comfortable with the shift between Santana & Brittany. This comment comes from a gay woman too. I just do not want them to overplay the gay card. I think those girls acted their butts off. They did great. I am just a little wary for them to push it. I mean, the sex ed message was great, the situation between BLain & Curt is great. I think the storyline with the closeted football player has potential. someone posted that someone dies and they seem to think it sadly may be Santana. I think it makes better sense for it to be that football player.i don't want to see anyone die! But, if it happens....well I just sayin. I felt for Santana! I came out in high school ^ it sucked. I felt her pain. So, I have mixed feelings. Still a big fan!
Like most episodes this season, there were some strong parts, but they tried to do too much and it got muddled. Check out my full review here.
Everybody's got a "random". Best line of the show.
Okay, lets start with the positive.
I started out loving the episode. Holly is AMAZING and I almost had tears in my eyes during the Landslide scene between Brittany and Santana.
Also, while I think it was totally weird (if nor wrong) from Blaine to go to Burt and ask him to have a sex talk with his son(?????), the talk itself was a great scene.
But then during the last 10 minutes or so, the writers managed to completely RUIN the whole episode!
I love Santana, but the outing felt very forced and sudden. I just hope they don't make another stereotype tortured closeted-gay character out of her!!! Plus they already did that storyline and I loved the Brittany-Santana frindship/relationship or whatever. I'll be so mad if they ruined that!!!
Also I hate the Puck/Lauren fling. I just don't buy it and to be honest she is getting on my nerves!!!
And why way everybody in the celibacy club at the end? I thought it was funny with Rachel and Quinn, but the all of the sudden everybody wanted
Just because Carl said he'd be at a hotel does -not- imply that he and Emma are breaking up. Anyone who knows how love works sometimes has had it happen where an argument or disagreement has them spend a bit of time apart to think things through and really dissect the situation. Besides, knowing how the writers are in this show anymore? They probably want the fans to intentionally presume the worst. My guess is it's going to be a Carl vs Will for Emma's affection sort of thing which will [more likely than not] be how Glee scores another season. Even if they do win regional the whole set up of this series solely focuses on drama so.. we'll get something else [more likely than not] randomly thrown in I'd bet.
Also, is it just me or are more fans also losing the ability to put 100% effort into watching each new episode? It used to be whenever Glee came on I was unable to be reached that whole hour. Now I seem to get more entertainment watching American Idol.. Glee re
AWESOME ep. Finally, Will is with grownups. He's sexy again! Gwyneth was a breath of fresh air.
But Klaine seems to be in the friendzone, like MissGossip said.
Which is such a waste.
I don't think that Santana was coming out in this episode, i think she was just admitting that she was in love with Brittany. She doesn't know if she is gay or not yet, she just knows how she has feelings towards Britanny and in this episode she vocalised them, she didnt come out. Kudos to Naya Rivera for AMAZING acting on that last speech and during Landslide!
Knowing how preachy the writers are I have a gut feeling that we are about to see a suicide coming up. They have announced that someone is going to die and I do think it will be suicide.
I hope they don't kill of Santana just cause she came out. But I have a bad feeling.
Loved this episode.
The kids nowadays don't are so lucky. The need for an episode like this is due to the dramatic lack of information about sex between youngsters.
There are a lot of young girls gettin' pregnant, ad STDs are spreading again between youngsters.
Our genereation (i'm from the 76) had more information (even if because the big fear of the widespreading HIV that caractherized those years) than nowadays teenagers.
And btw it were just Phinn and Brittany who seem stupids. But they're the "dumb characters" since the first episode.
The others guys are not so naive or stupid. They just lack information.
I loved this episode. It was something different and that is refreshing.
It's so hard to actually believe some of the acting some times but Naya Rivera's speech was so heartfelt and real.
It finally wrapped up carl and emma. Holly added some comedy!
Overall my favorite episode of the second season easily.
Unfortunately, I think Glee was a one season wonder. This season has been for the most part, except the moments when Sue goes around tearing up the school which is Hilarious, not very good.
Well. I thought it sucked.
For me, this is Glee at it's worst: a preachy central theme with a bunch of poorly constructed side stories strung together. If they want to do a preachy central theme, it's got to be wrapped up in strong, consistent story lines that MAKE sense. I'm sorry, but 90% of these lil segments were a pain.
The ONLY redeeming point was "Landslide." However, I do strongly think that Santana's coming out needed a heck of a lot more building up to. With the amount of time they spend on Kurt's struggle with sexuality, I think its annoying that Santana gets like 4 episodes total making reference to her issues before this episode. Ryan Murphy really needs to understand that if he wants to address all angles of an issue, he needs to stop playing favorites with the ones that apply to himself. Everyone needs a fair, balanced story line.
Also, someone needs to shoot Emma. BIG FAT DUH YOU STILL LOVE WILL.
And Finn and Quinn. WOW. You really get back together with tha
Damn it I missed this episode! I always miss Holly Holiday episodes!! Why!?!
@WemmaFan1#: did you watch the episode? Emma admitted she is confused over feelings for Will and Carl said he was going to stay at a hotel.
I take that as a break up for certain.
What, Carl and Emma broke up? I am really SO happy, that she still has feelings for him, but did they really break up?
I didn't like this episode, but neither did I dislike it. It was average, I guess. But it was my least favorite episode of all time, period. I don't know why, but it wasn't my favorite. Maybe because this ep was so anticipated... I also don't like the fact that there's still 0.0% romance between Blaine and Kurt. I mean, animal is such a sexy song! How com they seem to make it such a un-sexy song? Like, really! ahfgsjfgsf
I hope next week's ep is going to be better! Oh, and I feel like Klaine is in the FRIENDZONE. Anybody agree?
I don't really care if it seemed random at the moment. I think Naya did an excellent job, both in singing and acting. She needed some more dimensions anyways
they havent hinted at Santana coming out since season 1. as far as we were aware she was Bi, who sexed it up once in a while with Brittany. Total shock really, and im sick of the show trying humanize these characters that we fell in love with because they were OTT stereotypes! :(
Mr. Murphy Might want to take another look at a typical highschool. Just coz he is gay doesnt mean everyone else is....
@anon: A bunch of guys were dancing around in a blatant attempt to come across as sexy, when a bunch of white sticky bubbles suddenly popped out.
Are you truly saying the writers did not know what they were doing with that?
I was dissapointed at the lack of Chord Overstreet in this episode!!
I didn't hate the episode but can't say I loved it either. Was pleased Blaine finally shared the limelight with someone else (I was sighing and groaning before Kurt joined in, thinking yet again that it would just be blaine on vocals).
The Santana plot, I was pleased she seems to finally have a soul and has redeemed (or at least explained) why she is such a colossal bitch. It felt a little forced that she now has such deep feelings for Brittany as their relationship prior to that was so shallow and trashy, but I can get my head around her being in denial (although it still irks me that she kept coming onto Puck and Finn, and ruined Finn and Rachel's relationship for no reason, although now I'm pleased cos I can't stand Finn anymore). I'm pleased Brittany stuck with Artie though (although how dumb were Artie and Sam, not knowing their girlfriends hook up?! Doesn't everyone else in NDs know already?), as it;s a sweeter relationship. Brittany and Santana always resort to bitchiness when
Someone needs to get their partner checked for STDs if you think those bubbles resembled semen.
Your treatment of Santana's coming out is harsh, it wasn't random it was emotional and heartfelt. It's easy to say that it's random but they have been hinting at it since season one and glee does have the tendency to spring things quickly. it was a great and moving scene
