Glee-cap: Audition

September 21, 2010

“It doesn’t take much courage for people to park their cottage cheese behinds in their Barcaloungers and log on to the Internet and start tearing people down, does it?”

– Kurt

Welcome back to the new season, Gleeks!

You may still be shaking your head over that uncanny Justin Bieber lookalike (and who can blame you, really?) but there is much more to talk about tonight, now that the long-awaited “Audition” is over.   Rachel’s bangs = adorable.  Santana’s boob job = debatable.  Sue and Will’s short-lived alliance = predictable. The new Coach Beiste.  (“That’s B-E-I-S-T-E. It’s French.”)  Laudable!

There’ll be no shortage of chatter among the masses over the successes* and failures** of tonight’s show, so I’m going to go a different route.

Thanks to modern technological wonders like TiVo, we can squeeze the last drops of entertainment out of every single scene.  And when we catch a hint of something unexpected***, the “rewind” button provides affirmation.

So, thanks to the aforementioned, here are my five favorite under-the-radar moments of tonight’s episode:

1. While blogger Jacob/”Jewfro” interviews him, Puck methodically wipes both armpits with a balled up t-shirt, then sniffs it.

2. The sign on the bulletin board: “Cheerios Tryouts:  No Fatties”

3. In the middle of debating with Will, Sue checks her watch and declares, “Time to feed my gimp.”

4. The kids at Asian camp huddled over their iPhones.

5. Artie muttering, “The Bieber cut’s gotta go.”

Did you catch them?  Did I miss any others?  Tell me in the comments!

Until next time, Gleeks…

* The Rachel/Sunshine “Telephone” duo (any time they want to do Lady Gaga, it’s alright with moi)

** Finn’s Cheerios audition

***Incidentally, Lost used to do this incessantly with the “Easter Eggs” their producers inserted into every couple of scenes.  With mixed success, I might add.

    I think Cheyenne Jackson’s appearance as the new Vocal Adrenaline coach was something – grown man throwing a Hello Kitty back pack over his shoulder – priceless.
