Glee-cap: Laryngitis

May 11, 2010

“Hey!  Ladyface!”

– Sue Sylvester

Just like a bad haircut, my gleecaps are getting shorter and blunter.  Here’s my take on tonight’s episode:

What was GOOD:

  • Finn singing “Jesse’s Girl” … delish! (I doubt I’m the only one who suspects the Jesse character was so named, solely so they could do this wonderful Rick Springfield number?  I was instantly transported to the roller skating rink, circa 1982.)
  • Santana and Mercedes going at it via “The Boy is Mine,” although Santana’s voice is a tad snarly for my taste
  • Quinn playing the role of Mother Teresa – LOVE it!
  • Somewhat sappy but awesome exchange between Kurt and his dad, embracing their differences

What was BAD:

  • Mark Salling’s acting skills (sorry I have to break it to you Puck-lovers, but it’s true – the guy should NOT open his mouth unless he’s singing)
  • Kurt’s snarls and otherwise painful expressions during “Pink Houses” (kept expecting him to cough up a lugey)

Fortunately, the pro’s outweighed the con’s here, and I’m pleased to report that, generally speaking, the episodes seem to be back on track in terms of awesome-ness.

Stay tuned to next week in which, if the previews are any indication, we get to see how Neil Patrick Harris looks in a mullet!

    i love it! i thought the episode was highly amusing and i loved the songs. i downloaded all of them except kurt’s number from gypsy.

    i’m not sure whether or not i agree with your assessment about puck. he’s supposed to be shallow and absurd, right? wasn’t he acting as such? or do you think he was not convincing in his vapidity?

    also, brittany has the BEST LINES. this show is so good for my heart.

    I was a little disturbed by the reference to U2’s One as classic rock. Otherwise, great epi.
