So, the Super Bowl episode. I didn't have high expectations for it, because I've been dying for SLS, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was very good, and totally worth the suffering of watching guys tackle each other for god knows how long. The lines were hilarious - Sue's complaints about boobs and fire not exciting her? Santana answering to "Sandbags"? Brittany believing a story about baby cannons and a Mama cannon who can't work? Yeah, I LMAO'ed.
BUT THEN. The Karofsky thing -- oh my god, they're handling his arc so well. Can we give Adler an Emmy or something right now? Because he was flipping fantastic. His facial expressions are to fucking die for. Like when Rachel complained about not wanting to be in the presence of a known homophobe? YES. And when he was watching them perform Thriller/Heads Will Roll -- that smile was so effing cute, I just wanted to hug him so bad.
Finn was actually pretty decent in this episode, I thought. Granted, I had a couple of Ohshitohshitohshit moments (like when he suggested that Karofsky was gay, and when Sam went off on him for the Quinn thing), but in all? Yeah, he wasn't that terrible. Although I found the way that he tried to convince Quinn to pick Glee club wholly hypocritcal. Because doesn't he remember what he did when he had to choose between football and Glee? Yeah. Douchebag was the only one. Even Puck chose Glee.
There wasn't enough Kurt in the episode for my tastes, but BBB was very hot, and the scene with Klaine and Jonesberry -- errrr, I mean, Kurt, Blaine, Rachel, and Mercedes -- was so precious. <3 "Blaine and I love football." -look- "Well...Blaine loves football. I love scarves." We know you do, BB. We love them on you, too.
("Warm milk? Really?" -married couple style tone of surprise- "It's delicious." -married couple style tone of mild protest-
Seriously. Klaine. Yes.)
On another note, Lauren was amazing -- "Not me. I'm gonna bring the pain." -- and I'm loving her more and more with every passing episode. Rachel was adorable -- "Let's kick some ass!!"; "We're going to lie down, just going to lie there. :D" -- and I'm really becoming fond of her friendship with Puck. I never really shipped Puckleberry as a relationship (well, I did briefly, but just so that Rachel would be out of the way and Kurt could have Finn /days of old), but their friendship is very cute, and I think it's good for Rachel to have a friend that could be interseted in her romantically, but isn't. Just the same way that I want a Flirt friendship. (I'd say Klaine, if it wasn't so effing charming.)
Santana's bitterness towards Sue and eventual choice of Glee Club was sweet, Quinn's desire to stay on top was slightly irritating (are we getting human!Quinn back anytime soon? Please?), and Brittany admitting that if she didn't have to worry about her social status, she'd choose Glee Club was very endearing. And the moment of Quinnttany? "Don't worry, I'll talk to Mr. Schue about it." YESSSS. <333
But my favorite parts, I have to admit, were:
1. Figgins' reaction to Sue wanting to shoot Britt out of a cannon, and better still, his reaction to Sue's rampage -- "Oh god."
2. The Will-Bieste friendship. "Do you trust me?" "You're not going to try and kiss me again, are you?" -deadpan- They have the most epic bro/bramance yet, I think, and I really want to see it expanded further. <3
3. Azimio, and everything he said, pretty much. Showtunes being the music of his oppressors? LOL.
As far as the music went, it was all right. BBB was great - although I want Kurt to get another solo, goddammit. Blaine has been in six episodes and has had six solos in that span. In the past seven episodes, Kurt has had two solos. WTF. -- as to be expected from the Warblers; Thriller/Heads Will Roll was good, and Santana's vocals were much appreciated; Need You Now was nowhere near one of my favorites, but I liked Puck's vocals more than I usually do; She's Not There was an utter travesty, but the fact that Davie was there made me smile.
SLS was...I don't even know what to call it. It was great, naturally, but it was also heartbreaking.
Let's start with the obvious Klaine.
After seeing WIGYA, I really wanted to hate Blaine. I mean, I really wanted to hate Blaine. Because that was a really douchey thing to do. But I couldn't, and instead, I'm focusing my hate on myself for my inability to loathe the dapper ass.
Don't get me wrong, I was reallyreallypissed when Kurt stuck up for him with the Warblers (BTW, the way that he rose his hand and wiggled those adorable fingers of his? HOT. And don't pretend like you didn't notice the way the Warblers smiled at him, and watched him so intently, and are totally in love with him.), and Blaine's just like "Why at the Gap? 'cause the guy I like's the Junior Manager there. :DDD" while Kurt's just like "... ;~; ".
But then when they actually got there, and Kurt was helping him out? (Just for the record, I think that Jeremiah's a ginger. Not a blonde. Just throwing it out there.) It was very cute, and I actually felt bad for nervous!Blaine. And when I cried watching the scene, I think it was actually because Blaine was making a horrible idiot out of himself. Though mostly because of Colfer's beautiful sad!faces.
And then afterwards, when Jeremiah confronted Blaine about it? I couldn't even laugh to spite him, because he just looked so sad. It was a total "At first I was like :D, then I was like D:" moment.
Kurt comforting him was supercute, too. <33
This is where the unpopular opinion comes in, though. The scene where Kurt asks Blaine about all their flirty duets, and they have there whole "When Harry Met Sally" discussion? I didn't think Criss's acting was that good. /shoot me now.
I SWEAR. It's not because I'm bitter about the Klaine thing. Actually, I wasn't really as upset as I thought I'd be. (Maybe because Blaine's bitterness about all the hearts everywhere was funny, and cute, and Kurt didn't seem too heartbroken...for now, at least.) It's just that after Adler's epic performance on Sunday, and Colfer's ever-stellar one, just...Criss's delivery of his lines seemed forced, and just...I don't know. I just didn't like the scene for him. Maybe that's why they always have him sing out his feelings - boy can't act serious? This is the guy that wore pink sunnies to the Golden Globes... :/
Anyhow. I still have hope for Klaine, even though I think that their friendship will be superfuckingawkward now that Kurt's said he has feelings for Blaine, but I have more hope for Hevans.
And I want to know where the hell am I supposed to be channeling my hatred? Because it's not working on Blaine, and I actually like Jeremiah. Go figure.
(By the way -- the part with Kurt doodling "Kurt + Blaine" in a giant heart in his notebook? Fucking adorable.)
Now, onto everyone else.
The Kurtchelcedes sleepover was adorable. Mercedes' pajamas - epic win. Rachel's braids - oh hell yes. Kurt just moping - awww.
My heart. Rachel. Shattered. Get that? Yeah.
Okay, as if the scene with the necklace wasn't bad enough, the scene in the nurse was horrible in the best of ways. Just...seeing Michele emote so beautifully in reaction to Rachel hearing - or, not hearing, I guess - that Finn didn't feel the fireworks with her that he did with Quinn? It was terrible, and I wept like a baby.
Firework was awful, I'm sorry, but other than that? Oh, Michele. Such a good episode.
The Artie/Mike bromance was...interesting, and a little terrible for an Artina shipper, but I approved. (: Although I have to wonder if "Rad" and "Dope" will come back, thanks to that cute little exchange of theirs?
I'm not going to lie and say that I wasn't a little disappointed with the lack of Artina - I guess it's really over - but I'll live. Why? Because Tina's "My Funny Valentine" had me in stitches (oh my god, yes), and the Bartie was so fucking cute in this episode. When Brittany hugged Artie as her partner? Awwwwww. When she hopped on his lap (btw, that outfit was so sexy on her; those boots) and said "That's my man -- his legs don't work! :D"? I think I got a cavity, legit. Just...so...cute.
I actually wasn't that sad about the lack of Brittana in that episode, because of the Bartie. Which is weird. Because I love me some Brittana. I'm actually kind of sad that we're getting it back so soon, because things are looking so good for Bartie right now... ;~;
Anyhow. I love Lauren a lot - no envelopes full of cash or muffin baskets? "These candies you got me sucked." "But you ate all of them." "I had to make sure they all sucked." - and I think she has a lot of potential. I think it's good for Puck to meet a girl who doesn't automatically spread her legs for him - make 'im work for it. :D
(Although goddammit, where's Quick?)
Except Santana -- my heart broke again. Poor, forever alone Santana. :( Being called a bitch and being told that she would only ever be good as a pole dancer? Yeah, harsh, and uncalled for. Except her candy striper costume -- oh my god, her candy striper costume I almost died. My little sister was in the room with me, and it was really uncomfortable. Because I was all " O_O -incapable of coherent thought- Oh...my word...that's..." and she's like "What? You like it or you don't?". "No, it's nice, it's...nice... /drools."
I still don't want Samtana, because I find it weird, but I think that it could be interesting for a little while, anyway.
Now, for as glad as I am that we've gotten Quinnegan back, I have to ask -- WTF. He'll forgive Quinn for having sex with his best friend, but he won't forgive Rachel for making out with aforementioned best friend? I don't follow his logic. But okay. Whatever. I like their chemistry, and their interactions are very sweet together - Quinn talking about how she and Finn kissing makes her a cheater; how it was doing the exact same thing that hurt him so badly was touching, in a sad, weird sort of way. But I really do wish that they could be endgame, because I really do like them as a couple.
Except Sam. Sam also broke my heart, and yes, by now I've used that expression about a dozen times and it's probably lost all merit. But really, the scene where Santana dropped the hints about Quinn's infidelity, and Sam had that thoughtful, kind of disbelieving but mostly pissed and sad look on his face when he said "No, I watched them, it was just a peck"? Yeah, it was really bad. I teared up. I wanted Kurt to be there and to hold him and tell him It's okay, Jimmy, you can wake up now and I'll be your scooter.
Yes, even in the midst of Klaineuary (which is totes lame, I'm just saying), I can still ship Hevans like a BAMF. Whatever.
Also: When Kurt gave his speech about lonely people and whatever, did anyone else notice Wes staring at him very intently? We see you, Asian boy. We know you be crushing on Kurt, not even grinding up against Santana can make us think you're straight. (Although I found that part very precious.)
Page's hair looked really good in that episode. Like, really good. During WIGYA and SLS? Yeah. It wasn't slicked back; sort of spiked up. And it was uberuberuber hot.
Music was good -- SLS was great, as was WIGYA (I hate how much I love that sexiness. :/), although I wish that Colfer had gotten to sing something. FBG was nice, and Salling with the electric guitar was really hot. Firework was absolutely and completely awful, but I forgive, because Michele's voice is usually very good. I think my favorite, actually, was PYT, though. McHale's voice was just very fantastic, and Shum's moves -- oh, his moves.
Colfer on Letterman. I stayed up to watch it last night - I died laughing. The boy's so cute (though sexy is more appropriate I think, because of that suit of his /swoon.), and his stories were very precious. "But it's mostly just the jackasses. They're always like "Hey, remember all the fun we used to have?" and I'm like, "Yeah, when you stuck a tampon on my back in homeroom, that wasn't fun for me!""
I want a youtube demonstration of that kick he was talking about though. Right now, please.
