This episode of Glee was AMALLZING!! Never have I laughed and cried so many times during the course of an episode. Watching these kinds of episodes makes Glee worth all the bumps along the road. "Tongue tied" was BRILLIANT. This is a perfect review.
This was a better episode. Beiste's dv s/l made a heck of a lot more sense with Puck as it also helped Puck's character to grow. Which is how it should be not some random scenes with left-field PSAs and a song to round it up. This didn't feel forced to me just character growth on both parties. The songs were also better, other s/ls flowed and Tina GOT SOME LINES!
They had to win Nationals, its the main characters send off ie Rachel's. Who didn't see that coming? As eye-rolling as that was and some things didn't make sense (where the hell did the extra dancers come from?) they actually deserved to win. Much, MUCH better than last season's Nationals crapola.
Winning nationals was anticlimactic. They should have lost. The last scene should have been Will in a corner crying. An old man approaches him and he tells him they finished second. He thought they would "finally" win this year.
"How many years have you been coaching?"
"This is my third year."
"My kids lost too. This was my 45th year at nationals, and my last."
"Not just retiring, dying. I spent two months in the hospital earlier this year. It looked like I wouldn't make it here for awhile."
"Has your team ever won?"
"We came in second once. It was my third year."
A couple of questions, how come last year they didn't even place in the top 10 Glee clubs, and this year there were only three (we didn't need to see them all but at least allude to it)? Perhaps the rest of the fictional Glee groups have become as wearied as many of the old fans of the show?
Also where do they hide the Trouble Tones backing dancers (and who are they trying to kid miming along, we know they're not singing!). They didn't rehearse with the NDs or seem to be bunking with them at the hotel, shoddy exposition/writing. A line at least saying the Cheerios were coming to provide backup dancing would have been welcome cos it's weird when suddenly the Trouble Tones triple in size on stage.
While there were a couple of funny scenes/lines and a couple of well delivered songs in both episodes, I couldn't help but roll my eyes at Will winning teacher of the year (or whatever it was). This is a Spanish teacher whose own use of the Spanish language was so poor and offensive he was removed from his post and yet he still manages to win best teacher?!! Pah, what a joke. I can only suspend my disbelief for so long, that was a push too far.
They seriously need to quit with the Will worship, it's too much. There's only so much sickly sweet plotlines I can stomach. If it'd ended just with them performing to the other students with their win I'd have been much more satisfied with it.
I don't think there was a single song performance I did not enjoy. Though I never like the other schools performances that much (even though they are also very talented singers).
Does anyone else think Puck as Blaine looked a little like Jim Brewer?
You hit the nail on the head with Bieste's story line. It definitely worked so much better with Puck then the girls and I do believe it was because he wasn't even trying to help. It seemed more realistic and less like a PSA. I also loved their moments together and thought they both acted tremendously. I did agree with everything Tina had to say in the beginning of Props but I also think it was not at the right time. It wouldn't have been fair to give her the solo then just b/c she finally said something. I do look forward to her having a bigger role next season though. Lea has been the star of this show since day one and I'm sick of people complaining about it.
All of the switch ups were hysterical. Quinn really got into the Sugar role though. And I thought Sue looked fantastic as Will (seriously a great look for her). And Will had her smirk down so well. I would have liked to see ore of Santana as Artie though.
I don't think there was a single song performance I did not enjoy. Tho
the first half of the show annoyed me a bit, with the exception of Beiste and Puck. Their scene together was very heartfelt. I was expecting more of Tina's dream, I thought it was funny to see them all switched up.. I thought quinn did the best impersonation.. her sugar was spot on. Kurt as finn still felt too much like Kurt but the attempt in general was amusing. I was happy they won nationals, and I'm glad that they showed how awesome vocal adrenaline was too, it wouldve been annoying if vocal adrenaline choked and they won by default, but it was about the passion. Vocal adrenaline always centers around one performer. New directions, incoporates all of their star power.. which is why they deserved to win my eyes. the Mr. Shue/emma sex scene was a little weird but I'm glad they tackled that obstacle in their relationship lol
This show is ridiculous. How does one teach show choir and every year have your students not do anything until a couple of day/days before the competition? VA hands down should of won.
This show is about the misfits? No it's not. Tonight's episode was about Rachel Berry getting her way for 3 years and sailing right onto season 4 doing the same. RIB is constantly trying to make ppl feel sorry for Rachel but I can't. Tina was the voice of the fandom and they shut her down. She'll shine next year they say? She has to earn her way, they say. Yeah that's what Blaine did, oh no...he didn't. I'm not going to watch the last episode. It'll be filled with Rachel solos and Finchel once again telling us how much they love each other. While other couples are left to flonder around with no resolution.
This was a pretty great episode, and the review covers my sentiments exactly. It actually had me laughing, not rolling my eyes at the ridiculousness of storylines. Glee, please finish strong next week!
