Chris Colfer is probably my favorite part of the whole show. He, and Rachel and Emma's wardrobes.

According to the soundtrack listing, Kurt and the ladies are going to sing Lady Gaga's Bad Romance later this season. (Spoilered for people who don't want to know the songs ahead of time.) I think my reaction is best described as Squee!
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.

Jesus Christ, Shelby is Rachel's mom? That's... actually not an ass pull. I mean, look at them.

Also: Okay, so Artie got two solos. Neither one really uses his full vocal range, but hey. We take what we can get. And it seems that maybe he and Tina will get it on after all.

Kurt's actor does an amazing job with the monumentally shitty lines he's given. Also, he's so fucking CUTE!

Anyway, even though this episode was super sad, I kind of liked it, along with the past few episodes. Maybe because they didn't rely so heavily on the Finn-Rachel romance plot.....And now that I've said that, they'll probably have, like, fifteen episodes focusing on just them, right?

I gotta ask, am I the only one who thinks Kurt is near Draco in Leather Pants territory? He's manipulative, unapologetic, self-centered, delusional yet everyone acts like he's so fabulous and the sweetest thing in the world.

Don't believe me? Go to the Glee wiki, all the character shave ton of negative spots in the "Why we don't love them" what are Kurt's flaws? Only two

"He lied to Mercedes when she had a crush on him. He betrayed the boys in Mash-Up." Yeah I guess, lying to Rachel to get her to make a fool of herself, tricking Finn into revealing that he got Quinn pregnant to her family to cause problems, hooking up his dad with Finn's mom just to be near Finn and being catty in general aren't flaws.
 
Mercedes gets on my nerves. One half of her dialogue is Tastes Like Diabetes talk about getting deep and then the other half is, effectively, "Damn, that is whack". It seems that her only depths are her talking about her depths. Can she not still be in love with Kurt? That was actually something.

To be fair, though, Kurt's dad and Finn's mom are pretty happy to be together. And Finn gets to have a creepy surrogate dad in a trucker hat.
To be fair, Kurt didn't give a damn about that, he only cared about getting in Finn's pants and whether he was ignored or not.
 
What is this
Ok, so my friends are obsessed with this show and apparently Joss Whedon is going to (has?) direct an episode of it. What's the big deal? Can somebody explain why something that seems like Dawson's Creek with singing has captured nerd audiences with such fervor?

This week, Glee goes Ga Ga!

Squee!

I mean, cool.

Oh. Em. Goooooooooooooosh. I am frustrate. The Gaga and Kiss numbers were trimmed down, Rachel and her mom had such a Bittersweet Ending, and I absolutely loathed the scene in Kurt's bedroom between him and Finn. Especially when his dad came down and chewed out Finn for insulting his son. The episode had such an anvilicious gaysop that I feel emotionally damaged...and I am gay.

...mostly.

That's what Kurt is there for. To provide gaysops that are incredibly ill-conceived and patronising.

So, I was flipping through channels, and hey, look , Glee was on. I've been feeling some majore Hype Aversion towards it but decided to give it a shot.

I was pretty underwhelmed. The singing was really great - I actually got shivers during Bad Romance, but everything surrounding it was sorta painful. The writing was pretty bad in some instances. The acting was mediocre, not that you could do much with dialogue like that, but even considering this there were some really bad moments. And what got me the most was that it felt like they were trying to be realistic and theatrical at the same time, and it just fell flat for me. If you're going to have musical numbers like this with this high production, just fucking go for it and give the entire place an over the top campy musical feel. If they had just gone for it all the way I could have suspended by disbelief and accepted the production value, but because they were trying to be quasi realistic, all I could think was "Dude, do they realize how much a cyc costs? There is no way in hell a high school would pull that out for a rehearsal." Part of this was probably complete and total envy that even and imaginary high school could do that when it would take up like half of my university's theater depts budget for a semester

Phenomenal singing. Cool guest stars. Poor writing. Poor acting. Awkward mood. Ultimately falls flat.

I'm willing to give it another shot, though. Did I just come in on a bad episode for beginners? Or am I now part of the Hype Backlash?

The writing on Glee is strangely inconsistent, really.

And I'm getting a little annoyed by the excessive autotune in the show.

Meh, I feel the same way. The song and dance numbers are awesome, but aren't worth the godawful shite that sits between them. I was expecting something campy like a musical but it's really just a substandard teen high school drama peppered with awesome Big Lipped Alligator Moments.

I don't know. From where I'm standing, in my status as the sort of person who writes things that then get described as 'Beckett-ish, ' Glee is so far down the campy end of the scale I find it enjoyable enough.

Although, Lady Gaga is an embarrassment to humanity.
Last woman standing
Lady Gaga just plays a character like Alice Cooper.

Lady Gaga is the character. She is played by a transvestite who goes by 'Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta'.
