I like Tony over Katrina, and not for the lame reasons that Adam gave during his lengthy explanation of his scoring. They both having amazing voices, and I loved Katrina's "Killing Me Softly", but I think Tony is more consistent. More importantly, I think his song choice Monday night was more appropriate for showing his vocal power than Katrina's was. When he needed to bring it, he brought it.
For me, it's a toss up on the DV storyline. Dot-Marie Jones had an appearance for the first time in forever, which I really appreciated, and even though the subject came out of left-field, at the end of the episode I found myself thinking, "At least the writers didn't just wrap it up in one nice big bow and have a song resolve everything." Does it have a place on a show set in a high school? I don't know if there's a clear answer for that. I will say that I thought the rest of the episode was quite well-rounded, and Rachel singing KC's "Cry" at the end of the episode while seeing flashes of Beiste/Puck was really well done, IMHO. This was one of my favorite Glee episodes in a really long time.
Is Mr. Feeney Christina Yang's examiner?!
This episode was a bombshell, and one of the best episodes yet! I really wished that next Monday would come around quickly so that we could see exactly what happens. Dev was an idiot. For someone who seemed so encouraging of Karen and her dreams, he's not very encouraging of Karen and her real career. To keep so many new developments in his life from Karen, then to feel forced to confide in RJ to the point of almost hooking up with her, THEN to try to propose to Karen? I was in love with his character before, but now he's just pretty pathetic. And if he does indeed sleep with Ivy as the previews suggest, I hope there is utter wrath to come.
I'm so glad this review included the dramatics of Christina Aguilera. It's making the show really frustrating to watch. All of the judges have some annoying habits they fall into...Cee Lo always sounds like a kid in a classroom who's surprised he got called on by the teacher. When Adam gives criticism, he packages it within five different compliments and says it's something that he struggles with as well, leading him to ramble on. But I really feel like Christina goes out of her way to not compliment Tony Lucca (glad that was brought up) and then later, forcefully tells him in front of a live audience to choose Katrina over Tony. Add that to the fact that either she has to sing/bring up moments where she's sang the song before/mention that she cleared a song for a former contestant, and I want to throw a brick at my very nice television every time she opens her mouth.
With that rant out of the way, my picks are Team Blake: Jermaine Paul; Team Xtina: Chris Mann; Team Cee Lo: Jamar Rodgers; Team Adam: Tony Lucca. Unfortunately I just realized that this make's for an all-male finals, which being a girl kinda bothers me...but I could get over it for these particular singers.
I can get down with 13 episodes. Renew away, ABC!
I love the pastor! Definitely my favorite quote of the episode. It seems next week is the GCB finale, so I'm hoping it'll be good enough for ABC to pick it up for a full season!
What a good episode! It was nice to see how lots of things came together with where we started the story and how Gepetto and Pinnochio were involved. Emma is crazy thinking she's just gonna take Henry and leave...so crazy that it's actually pretty laughable.
I'm just amazed that the season is over so soon! I know it was 22 episodes, but the beginning of the season still feels so fresh in my mind. Alicia deciding whether or not she wants to be a part of her family (with Peter) isn't new to the viewers, so that last scene was very underwhelming. I was a little bit shocked at how dangerous Kalinda's husband seemed, but I wish it would've amounted to something that the audience could see rather than leaving us hanging for season 4. But shout out to the awkward moment at the elevators...I kept rewinding to savor the awkwardness!
I agree with Doe-Rae-Me. I don't think I can deal with anymore AddiSam. I'd much rather her be alone with Henry than to keep fooling around with Sam.
