I find myself talking so much to friends and family about the most recent episode, that I thought why not just put my thoughts down on my blog and have people come read it if they want to know what I think! I wanted to do something in this form since the beginning of the second season, but just couldn’t really find the time to do it. Now, I am hunkering down and posting my thoughts and ramblings, what I liked and didn’t like, and of course postulating on which member of the glee club will end up making out with the other.
I should say that there are VERY exciting developments coming up with my recaps, so get in to them!
So let’s get right in to it.
Season 2, Episode 15, “Sexy”
Okay, right away I have to say that I LOVED Gwyneth Paltrow in last night’s episode! Not only were all of her lines HILARIOUS, her character was a million times more likable than the last episode she was on. Everyone went BANANAS over her when she first appeared on Glee, but I never really cared. She was just another guest character to me. Last night’s episode not only redeemed her character, but made me think she belonged on the show, which can’t be said about other guest appearances *cough cough John Stamos, Britney Spears cough cough.*
Secondly, the whole story of last night’s episode was fantastic! I’m sure FOX is dealing with tons of hate mail about how people don’t want their children to be watching a show about sex. But isn’t that the irony? The show was all about teaching your kids about sex education. Personally, I can only remember one time that sex education was ever mentioned in school. 5th grade, Mr. Northcraft’s class. The girls all had to get up and go to another teacher’s classroom while all the boys watched a video about how sooner or later our armpits will start stinking and that we HAVE to use deodorant with antiperspirant. All I remember is everyone laughing, and me being so confused as to what in the HELL was going on. And then that was it for sex education in my public school career. So, BRAVO to Glee for addressing the issue.
Speaking of storyline, Brad Falchuk, the co-creator of the show, deserves a huge round of applause for the Kurt/Kurt’s Dad scene! One of the best scenes ever! I think we can all agree we went in to that scene JUST as nervous as Kurt was. But, Kurt’s Dad always seems to know the right thing to say. By the end of the scene I had left out the breath that I had held for the entire 3 minutes. What’s great about that scene (and the show) is that EVERY single word and sentence is pertinent to the story. It’s like watching poetry come alive! This is what makes Glee fantastic.
The Celebacy Clubs CHEESE-TASTIC rendition of “Afternoon Delight” had me ROLLLLLING. With the cherry pie in the background. Puck’s faces. Emma and Rachel’s mannerisms as if they were singing at a church function. And the DRESSES. So hilarious! I am LOVING Emma Pilsbury…which is a complete 180 from the beginning of this season.
I’m not sure about this Will/Gwyneth situation. I want Will and Emma together. I think it will eventually happen.
Finally, I think that Naya Rivera (Santana) deserves every award she can get for the scene with Brittany at the locker. Wow! Somehow I connected with her, and felt like I was in just as much pain as she was. The acting was amazing and the storyline was right there with it. I can’t wait to see what evolves with this situation. Even with the “sweet lady kisses” they’ve had, I never quite thought that Santana was a lesbian. Glee is great with these out of left field moments.
Random thoughts I didn’t feel like developing:
- Enough with Blaine singing. More Kurt please. And, like, can we get the romanticism going PLEASE.
- Will Shuester needs to put it in his pants and stop kissing EVERY SINGLE FEMALE on the show.
- I needed more Jane Lynch this episode…I’ve waited 2 weeks guys!
- Lauren better have a HUGE belting number sooner or later. Otherwise she’s starting to get on my nerves.
That’s all for this week! Make sure you check out my thoughts on next week’s episode, where they FINALLY go to Regionals! The episode title is “Original Song.”
