Glee > Glee Review: A Non-Asian F > Comments Page 4
i really enjoyed this episode. between mike struggling between following his dream and pleasing his parents, and Emma dealing with ginger supremacist parents and her OCD. the only thing that pissed me off this episode was Mercedes. i completely agree with what her boyfriend was saying. Mercedes is always playing second fiddle. and she dose deserve the spotlight sometimes. but not on stage. Mercedes can sing but she cant do much else. Rachel on the other hand is the complete package. but thats not what pissed me off. its when she started acting like a spoiled brat that pissed me off. same with her attitude in the night of neglect episode. just because you think your the best doesn't mean you get to throw a tantrum and treat your friends and teachers like shit. not to mention defect to another glee club. I'm just tired of her "poor me" attitude. and her taking it out on everyone else. she acts like she deserves to be on top. maybe she should actually do the work to deserve it instead of
Um, that's "Garanimal wearing ass-kisser"- garanimals clothing is a line for little kids. Get it? Mercedes is calling Rachel a little kid.
That's the joke.
When you have to explain a joke to a reviewer, something is amiss. I thought this was a great episode!
this episode was way too packed, I agree. And lolol to the people saying the reviewer just jumped on the bandwagon and doesn't know Glee. He's the editor in chief of the site, I'm pretty sure he has. Just sayin.
Heather Morris is an INCREDIBLE dancer!!! Why is this show taking a break until November? It's been 3 episodes...
Such a bad episode.
Mercedes has to be the only character that's shown 0 development from day 1. Go look at her attitude in the first episode and compare it to this.
Also wtf is with the "rachel loses all her friends" story doing back, and the mercedes "to be beyonce I must act like a cow". Rache works hard to be the best. Mercedes does nothing, everything felt so forced.
Rachel won the sing off, Lea's voice is way to good to ever lose lol
Oh and Amber has tweeted that Mercedes is NOT pregnant.
Well done Glee, although I will continue to adore Amber the show has made me loathe Mercedes (which I hadn't done since she told Puck to abandon his baby in season 1). I thought we were supposed to like her new boyfriend? What's he doing encouraging her to be stroppy and confrontational with Rachel for when they were friends? I can understand he was trying to encourage her but what's with him pushing the hate and making Mercedes think everyone's out to get her? They could have been just as competitive for the role without Mercedes having to resort to bitchiness. Made me miss Sam even more, he never would have encouraged her to end her friendship with Rachel over a stupid role.
Does Mercedes even NEED the part as Rachel does for her college application? As powerful and gorgeous as her voice is and how talented she is Mercedes is simply not suitable for Maria, she doesn't sing in that range, we've never heard her attempt a song from the play, would her voice even fit? She doesn't rehear
Kurt also annoyed me, student elections are all about popularity, he should not be worry about Rachel, Brittany is well liked by both boys and girls shouldnt he be more upset with Britt because she was his manger and bailed on him to run on her own. Rachel had a good plan with them both running and making the other VP they both would have better chances. Does it bother anyone else that Finn never seems to support her?
Mercedes' attitude majorly pissed me off in this episode. Life is not always fair, especially when it comes to who gets the part in theatre, and you will never get the part if you act the way she did. Also, the part in question is Maria...can anyone honestly picture Mercedes singing "Tonight"? She can hit high notes on a belt and is an amazing singer, but generally more of an alto. It's just absolutely a better fit for Rachel and it was so frustrating that the show was setting it up like Mercedes deserved the role.
Mercedes can be awfully nasty -- and I sure think she was in this episode. All she said was all about ego in the most negative way. She could have had the lead in 6 performances, but she chose to have the lead in none of them because Rachel also got 6 performances (and was happy to have them, whereas Mercedes didn't give a damn about performing). She doesn't want to be Beyonce on stage, she only wants to be Beyonce going to a restaurant or walk through an airport and be recognized or visit the White House or anything where she doesn't have to do any work at all. She wants to be famous. She doesn't have what it takes to be a star. She has a strong voice but Rachel puts way more feeling into it, Rachel puts way more of herself into it.
People like Mercedes as she is being portrayed at the moment are the ones who are always kicking people like Rachel in the teeth. If that wasn't the case and Rachel had more confidence, she might have realized she beat Mercedes in their sing-off,
I agree with you Johnny....WORST REVIEW EVER!!!!! Clearly the writer just joined the bandwagon based on all the press and rave that Glee has been getting. Its my opinion that he or she should go out and purchase a copy of both Seasons of Glee and get updated! Or get it bootleg if purchasing it might be colossal waste of your time and money since you were so less than intrigued with episodes!
Personally I thought Mercedes was being a bit childish. Rachel is egotistical, annoying and arrogant but she wanted to win fair and square. She was ready to accept sharing the lead with Mercedes and at the end, was guilty that things turned out the way they did. Plus, something seemed off with Mercedes, she's unsually been more reasonable but she was snappy, and feeling sick, was their something more going on there?
This was a great episode in my opinion it had everything great acting great singing and it delivered emotional depth from Mike and Emma who most consider background actors it made me laugh it made me tear up and also made me mad I feel that a great episode should make me feel these emotions and this episode of glee did it was one of the best in the series on Mercedes part lets be honest in what world would she have been casted as Maria? She sung great though at least she should have been cast as Anita and also with. Rachel running against Kurt all of a sudden that was a snake move just saying.., overall a very great episode of glee
I hate they can never let Rachel win because they have to make it a point for her to be defeated. Rachel IS the best. She works the hardest, and she wants it more than any of them. Why shouldn't she get the lead? I never have been a fan of Mercedes' character, to be honest.
I think you're waaaaayyyyy too much analizing a show that is suppose to entertain you. This episode was the best in ages, hell, it's probably one of the best ever. You had everything: good covers, good acting, good stories, laugh, tears...
... Also, did anyone else catch the pregnancy reference for Mercedes, I thought it was especially underscored by the fact that she was "Effie" for It's All Over, well, that and her nausea. Anyone familiar with Dreamgirls should know what I'm talking about. Perhaps she's taken a step forward with her new boy friend. Sex makes you a hell of a lot more confident (if it's good).
The best parts of the episode were everything with Mike and Emma. I teared up when Mike danced with him mom, it was such a great moment. The dinner with Emma's parents was great at well.
Normally I like Mercedes, but she annoyed me in this episode. She was such a brat. She needs to drop this "diva" attitude ASAP.
Rachel has the voice for Maria... Mercedes doesn't she sounds better for Anita.
Worst review ever! I think this episode set the stage nicely for the remainder of the first half of season three, especially since we don't get any new episodes until November
He wasn't the kidding? ...changes that will "people like him."? - Sloppy
"because I was distracted by the mention of Carl. Who the heck is that?!? - Her ex-HUSBAND! Have you watched ANY of last season?
A show can only ask its audience to well up so many times per hour before it turns more eye-rolling than tear-inducing. - You have clearly never sat through an episode of Grey's Anatomy.
@Marchie: It does not have to center on one character, of course. But when there are such major storylines - Mike's parents, Emma's parents, Mercedes vs. Rachel - I'd prefer to show each more respect and explore each a lot more.
There can be side plots, but typically, shows have an A storyline and a B storyline, sometimes a C storyline. This tried to shove in three As and resulted, to me, in taking away from the effectiveness of each.
Where can I find the pink dress that Lea Michelle wore walking down the hallway I loved it?
Mercedes gets me ticked off. Rachel works so HARD and deserves everything she gets. and mercedes does nothing and thinks things should just present themselves to her without her doing anything to achieve that. And everyone is always beating up on Rachel and giving mercedes the vote... but what has mercedes ever done!?!?! and she has the worst attitude
i thought this ep was great, 5!
I am probably alone but I do think Rachel deserved the part of Maria. Mercedes should have got the part of Anita. Also the fact is Mercedes is very lazy... something both Mr. Shue and Jesse told her. She keeps talking about being Beyonce but she doesn't like to practice. There is a disconnect that she just doesn't want to see and when people call her out for it she gets defensive. The whole scene at Booty Camp proved that (as she cuts off Finn who attempts to point out Rachel practices everyday). Also if they were casting for Maria... it not about who sings better, it was about who was Maria and Rachel is Maria. Something Emma, Beaiste, and Artie pointed. I also agree with the reviewer on everyone not trying to hurt Rachel's feelings... I can recall 10 scenes where they do hurt her on purpose.
Can I say I find it strange that Mercedes would go to Shelby who is much worst and harsher on her students in her glee club... didn't Mercedes go to see Vocal Adrenaline practice. If she clai
i absolutely hate mercedes. rachel gets shit all the time, people are horrible to her so they don't spare her feelings. mercedes is lazy and expects things to be handed to her. whatever, rachel deserved the part i just hope she drops out of the race. when mercedes went to shelby, whatever officially on my least favorite list...
