Glee > Glee Review: Dueling Divas > Comments Page 2
Santana made this episode exciting for me I mean nutbush limits song the way she was singing and dancing was so hot and the girl on fire song was great I was happy when she ended up in new york I'm glad she didn't ask brittany to get back together because she is too mature for her anyway even though I hate that they are not together and brittany is still with sam but I will get over it once santana find somebody else I can't wait for next week quinntana will probably kiss.
And what would be wrong with making Blaine bi? I HATE how the gay community is so touchy. Just because they write this character as bi doesn't mean their saying that "every gay person just needs the right girl.", which is SURELY what they'll spew should this storyline come to pass.
I loved this episode. One of my favorites so far. HOWEVER there were certainly some irritating things in this episode. First of all: I'm TIRED of Glee acting like Kurt is competition for Rachel vocally. I mean c'mon, let's be real. His weak falsetto cannot compare to the magnitude of her immense voice. She CLEARLY won this Diva Off AND she won season 1's Diva Off. It's so annoying how they act like if Kurt hadn't thrown that note then he would've won, when her version as a whole was CLEARLY superior. The only reason Kurt won was because it was scripted that way. If this were real life, there's no way in hell he could ever beat Rachel, are you kidding?
Also the Santana storyline pissed me off. SHE broke up with Brittany and suggested they see other people, so why the hell is she telling Sam to back off when she has no say in the matter and Brittany is CLEARLY happy with him?
And last but not least. That damn kiss. That kiss took the episode from being a 10 to a 7-8. I don't know
BTW, I liked this episode, but wasn't happy with how Santana acted toward Brittany. I mean how immature is it to tell Sam that he can't have her, though Santana herself isn't going to date her again, anyway? Doesn't make sense, and I'm glad that she decided to move in with Kurt and Rachel! I think Santana will take to NYC like a cat to cream. She is certainly catty enough to be a waitress in a NYC restaurant! Anyway, I LOVED Kurt in this ep, especially his song from Les Mis...lordy, what a voice! Though I enjoy Rachel's voice, I find her immaturity and attitude annoying as heck, but when I hear her sing, and when I hear her voice and Kurts together, my heart soars!
I think it is totally realistic for a high school girl to have a crush on a very sexy and adorable gay guy. I went to college with just such a guy, very talented musician and dancer and actor, and we 'dated' in a totally platonic way, but I loved that guy because we had a lot in common (we both loved musical theater, books, and Gene Kelly). Did I think I would end up marrying him? Ah, no. I broke off my relationship with him when I found out he was going to marry the sister of a guy he was in love with, just so he could be closer to the heterosexual guy, who was a devout Christian and didn't want to admit his 'friend' was gay because he believed it to be against "Gods will". Also, a large number of the lesbians I went to college with ended up marrying men and having families. When asked, most said they were 'experimenting' with their sexuality in high school and college. So I agree that your sexuality is not always set in stone when you're young.
I LOVED this episode. And I agree with most of the review for a change. I generally like the NYC eps better and Kurt has been my favorite since season 1, for the very reason that the reviewer noted: depth of character, etc. Though I liked ALL of the characters (and performers) very much. Great ensemble, which is why it works :)
The best part was that, yes, Rachel (who has always been kind of manic & diva-ish) got on her high horse after her well-deserved Winter Showcase win. So Kurt threw the diva gauntlet and told the long-hidden secret of the failed F from Defying Gravity. Yes, I did love that part. I loved the sassy Kurt's words & expressions when he stood up. The diva-off was excellent. Loved both Kurt & Rachel's covers: his was the emotional interpretation I preferred and hers was stronger vocally (but not as much as I expected). And when crushed Rachel started climbing back into a broken world, Kurt was the friend he had always been, as she had been when
I understood your point, and at times, people got their sexuality figured out, but Blaine only had one gay fling pre-Kurt, then a straight experience with Rachel, which he didn't enjoy, thus the "definitely gay" line in Blame it on the Alcohol, and then a long term gay relationship. But we have to face that at 17 years old, a person really can't put a label in him/herself if he didn't experience life in the most variable ways he can. Case and point, since you gave your background, I'll give you mine, i'm straight as an arrow right now, but at 17 I got out from a long term relationship and went into college. In college, i had many experiences and that included hooking up with guys, wich made my friends say i was bi, but that was an experience and now I'm in another relationship, because now I know that I just don't feel atracted to men, but that confusion, that willingness to experiment and maybe, just maybe, find out who you really are is what I see now in Blaine and it's wha
I find the female figure beautiful.
But (like Blaine) I am in no way sexually attracted to women (a point that was made not only in this episode but Blame it on the Alcohol way back when).
I really can't see any realistic scenario where Blaine would 'become' bisexual that wouldn't be insanely ridiculous. Santana's random switching of sexualities halfway through season 2 was bad enough, let's not completely ignore the whole 'definitely gay' point Blaine made when he kissed Rachel sober just to give Tina some more screentime (who they've ruined completely within the span of 14 episodes but let's not get into that right now)
I haven't been watching this season that much but I'm happy that Santana is moving on finally even I hate bram I mean dislike them she need to find herself and and Finn and Emma kissing what the hell was that man ? For me the show was good but I still not feeling unique like that
I think that since they have been developing such a strong bond between Kurt and Rachel, they should not undermine it with petty arguments. This is NY after all. They can both be strong and show their talent together while capitalizing on their friendship. I don't think that they always know how to throw Brody into the mix - when he is at the apartment he seems to be the odd man out. I'm really not sure how Santana will fit into the mix - wonder what they will make her storyline... NYADA too? As much as I love Santana's voice, I think they need to add more to the story than NYADA
Jayma Rules you're sooo right about kurt. this character is so annoying, and he always complains how he feels bad, etc.
this episode was boring, I don't know what to say more.
As for the Emma-Finn kiss. um what. im so confused im going to forget proper punctuation for abit finn you are not will. FINN YOU ARE NOT WILL. stop dressing like him. stop JUST STOP
I was a little disappointed in Santana tonight, but then I realized how scary it is to leave familiarity behind. I believe she was just hanging on to a flimsy excuse (Brittany) that kept her from moving on. But, now she's been pushed into the future. And I just loved how she simply walked in with a "I'm moving in."
Tina-Blaine. Ugh. Please don't date. Please don't. Blaine's gay. he stays gay.
Kurt, I've never loved him more. He's definitely way above all others in my love for the Glee characters.
I really didn't like this episode. I think a big part of it was Rachel. She annoyed the hell out of me from beginning to end. From her high and mighty "I'm as good as it gets" crap to her pouting like a 12 year old when Kurt beat her. I hope she snaps out of this real soon...
I'm still undecided about Tina and blaine... It feels forced, like just a random excuse to put Tina in front of the camera,. But it could turn into a good story.
And Finn kissing Emma? Horrible... Just leave shue and Emma alone. Let them be happy without the drama, and stop trying to turn Finn into shue.
If only we could go back two years and change the ending to Blame it on the Alcohol. Can you picture Kurt and Rachel competing for Blaine while Finn and Jesse team-up to draw Rachel away from Blaine. Give him an episode-long dream where that plays out!
I agree with you Miranda, DIVA has been the best episode so far. But I think that what it made so good was because it was first time in a long time which we actually got to focus on new directions and the music (which was inspired by the way) as a pose to bumps in relationships andlong drawn out self-esteem issues. Watching this with my sister, we both cringed at FINN AND EMMA, my sister still is, but in a way I thought not only was her acting brilliant in that scene, but finn's reaction to Emma (the kiss)felt so natural, that there was a longing I felt between the characters for this unexpected love to flourish.
As for TINA AND BLAINE, whilst it frustrates me that Blaine 'appears' to remain completely oblivious to Tina's infatuation with him, I still think that it would be great that if Tina really takes that leap, and Blaine of course rejects her, that eventually he realises that an urge to 'try' may come through. In a really sweet and caring way, - even if it doesn't work out.
I agree with many of you; the Tina-Blaine storyline it's not ridiculous at all. You don't choose who you fall in love with, and she's in High School for God's sake! She's still growing up. Plus, Blaine hasn't been the best character either. They haven't develope him that much, and for all we know he might be bisexual. Don't get me wrong, I don't want Tina with Blaine, but it could happen because as Tina said, they're still young and you're still going through changes. It's been one of my favorite storylines this season, and it all led to the "Hung Up" performances which, in my opinion, it's one of the best this season.

As for TINA AND BLAINE, whilst ot frustrates me that Blaine 'appears' to remaiin completely obivous to tina's infatuation with him, I still think that it would be great that if tina really takes that leap
I don't really think it's a devolution if you analyze her character though. Her relationship with Michael was grounded, but it's no more, and she is dealing with the after-effects of that, which may include her confusion. It was exactly the point of the Rachel-Blaine kiss in season 2, only that now it's actually developed into a realistic point. And frankly, I don't know what the rage about Blaine becoming bi is all about, it seems to me more like an excess of fan craziness to require his character to be so tied up to one image when he's let it clear that he finds the female figure beautiful. From a realistic stand point, Glee is there, but I guess when the real stops pleasing us, it's better to just keep it fantasy.
I don't really think one could say that's I characteristic for Tina… you can't help who you like. And in high school, you're going to have crushes on all different types of guys. It seems pretty natural to me. He's good to look at and nice to her and gives her attention. She's having a lonelier year without mike I'm sure. Sometimes that's all it takes.
And to jayma rules, Kurt is one of the best characters on tv. I think his Emmy and golden globe wins prove that enough too. He was standing up for himself tonight. And he was actually gracious about it. I'm not sure what show you're watching.
This episode just kind of inadvertently ended up demonstrating why Kurt is a terrible character. He's a petty, catty bi*ch often, rude, thoughtless of the feelings of others, self-righteous, egotistical, etc, and he's never called out on it. Instead he gets to maintain a totally unearned moral high ground. It makes his characters boring, and it makes him unlikeable. They really need to find something new to do with him, because I found him far more unbearable than I found Rachel, and that's saying something.
I don't even understand what these writers are doing with Tina, but I want them to stop it. It's terrible and offensive.
Jayma Mays is such an excellent actress, wow. And so totally wasted on this show.
Loved everything about this episode. Favourite episode so far, I think. Enjoyed every single performance.
The Tina-Blaine storyline is so great. One of my favourite storyline's this season. Though I got a little nervous (and jealous) when Tina starting undoing Blaine's shirt while he was sleeping.
So happy that Santana's back. If she actually does end up moving in with Kurt and Rachel I'll be excited to see how they all get along living together. This should be good.
I want to see more Kurt/Adam! And Adam's Apples! Also I'd like to see how Blaine feels about Kurt's relationship with Adam because as much as I like the idea of Kurt and Adam dating, Kurt and Blaine will always be my favourite couple. Klaine is endgame.
Loved the Finn/Emma kiss! I've never really like her with Schue so I guess I'll take anything. Really liking Finn this season, too.
Also more Blaine/Sam friendship! Love them.
@Jo--It might be realistic for a straight girl to have a crush on a gay guy, but it's completely unrealistic and out of character for Tina, who was at one point the go-to for relationship advice since her relationship with Mike was so grounded. It's a devolution of her character.
I was so excited to be treated to 3 numbers from Santana tonight! And I was crossing my fingers that she would end up at Rachel and Kurt's! Hopefully we will be seeing a LOT more of her :) that Emma and Finn kiss was completely ridiculous. It was so far out of left field. I don't think Tina having a crush on Blaine is that ridiculous. I have friends who have been attracted to our gay friends before. I'm sure she's not "in love" with him. She's probably just attracted to him and is making more out of it than there really is. All the numbers in this episode were great though. And a great episode all around!
The Tina- Blaine line is the most realistic thing we've had this season. I know countless of girls and boys in love with a gay person. The unrequited love storyline hasn't been told in depth as this one.
