Glee: Girls (and Boys) On Film

After two long weeks of waiting for the return of Glee I have to say that I was quite disappointed in this episode! I wanted answers and I didn’t get any!!

So the episode revolves around songs from movies. I actually really loved all of these classic movie songs! I really enjoyed most of the musical numbers in this episode, especially Come What May. This episode also featured their 500th musical performance! In 4 short seasons, that is a lot of musical numbers!

So the episode again takes place half in New York with Rachel, Kurt and Santana and half in Ohio with the Glee club. The trio in New York are stuck indoors in a snow storm, along with Kurt’s potential new boyfriend. Santana is a complete bitch and makes lots of accusations based on things she found in their apartment when she went rooting through everyone’s things. Basically she comes to the conclusion that Brody is a drug dealer based upon the large sum of money and beeper that she found in his things.  Rachel of course denies it but Kurt is on board with the idea. Later in the episode she confronts Rachel about the pregnancy test she found in the trash can and Rachel breaks down. This is literally all we get in terms of the potential pregnancy news which is so frustrating! That’s what everyone wants to know about!!

Back at William McKinley Finn is determined to find out where Emma is hiding after she left Mr. Schuster at the alter. Finn actually does manage to track her down and Mr. Schuster, accompanied by the entire Glee club, serenade her outside her window with a boom box and all. After the kids scatter post song Will and Emma talk about the state of their relationship and come to the conclusion that they need to start over and get to know each other again. Good plan by the Glee writers because the Wemma fan base is still happy because they are still technically together but it also gives them a problem, something to work through, and drama of course.

Other small parts of the show include dumb Marley dreaming about Ryder and telling Jake that Ryder kissed her on Valentine’s Day, which of course causes him to storm out. Finn also tells Will that he kissed Emma before the wedding! This is going to be the main source of tension in the next episode where Finn and Will will be battling it out on stage which is supposed to get them back on track to being buds.  Uh huh.

Do you think Will can forgive Finn for kissing his almost wife? Will we finally learn if Rachel is pregnant or not next week? Sound off in the comments with your thoughts on this week’s episode.

I Will Go Down With This Ship

Since both Grey’s Anatomy and Glee were off last week (Glee for the past two excruciating weeks!)  I have decided to talk about the past and future state of Finchel (Finn and Rachel, from Glee).  Ever since the Valentine’s Day episode “I Do” I have been stuck on Finn’s mini speech to her.

Finn: [to Rachel] You and I both know how this thing ends. I don’t know how, or  when, and I don’t care where you’re living or what dope you’re shacked up with.  You’re my girlfriend. We are endgame. I know that and you know that.

This is pretty heavy.  Say the word endgame to any girl and their panties pretty much drop instantly, just like Rachel did.  Endgame is powerful.  It has meanings of marriage and happily ever after.  But just exactly where were we in the Finchel relationship before that point?  They were broken up, sure, but…why?  At the end of Season 3 Finn lets Rachel go to New York, setting her free.  He tells her that if they are meant to be together the universe will make it so.  Rachel goes to New York and misses Finn, acting like she is still a taken woman.  She has her little makeover episode and she kisses Brody right before Finn walks through the door.  Finn tells her how he is done with the Army and Rachel tries to incorporate him into her NYADA lifestyle, hopeful for them to be together again.  But because Finn feels his life is inadequate to the life Rachel is building for herself in New York and because he could sense her budding relationship with Brody he gets emo and leaves New York without telling Rachel.  So she flies all the way back to Ohio to tell him that she can’t chase him anymore and that they are done temporarily.  Flash forward four short months, when Finn has his confidence built back up by the Glee club and Rachel and Finn seem like best friends in their conversations.  At the wedding he tells her the quote above and they jump into bed together before Rachel heads back to New York and to Brody.

To me this is the typical first love type of saga.  The kind of love that you’ll never really forget about and the kind where you never stop loving that person.  Most teenager based shows have this kind of ship.  I am pulling for Rachel and Finn to be together – but I am sure they’ll have many more ups and downs throughout the years that Glee remains.  Here’s hoping to a positive outcome for them in this week’s episode!  Either 1.) Finn be the father or 2.) False positive!

Do you ship Finchel?  Sound off in the comments about what you think will happen on this week’s episode between Rachel & Finn!

The evolution of Rachel Berry

Rachel Berry of Glee has definitely gone through some major character changes this season! And along with them have come some rocking new style changes as well. I am loving the new hair style and clothing choices. Check out the slide show below to see just how far Rachel has come in 4 seasons. Let’s hope we don’t have to add maternity outfits to this slideshow! Sound off in the comments and let us know what you think is Rachel’s best look!

Glee – Diva’s a Female Version of a Hustla

Thank goodness for the return of themed Glee episodes!  DIVA – I can’t believe they haven’t done this one before.  So we’ll start with the #1 Diva, Rachel.  Apparently winning the showcase has gone to her head, and Kurt complains that she is being a pain because of it.  He tells her that he let her win their first singing competition and that he could beat her anytime he wants, which of course he does.  I don’t understand why they always knock Rachel down.  Let the girl shine! Of course she pouts like a child for the rest of the episode.

Diva #2 – Santana.  I was so excited when Sue said “What is with you glee club ex-pats? Don’t you have jobs? You have to have some source of income so you can pay the staff of scientists who service your teleporters that you all clearly on since you’re constantly showing up here.” It was exactly what I was thinking.  NY, Ohio, NY- crazy.  And what a burn on Britney after her performance, pretending to have a new girlfriend!  AH!  She is so selfish for breaking up with Britney and not wanting anyone else to have her.  Such great performances from Santana all night – that girl is a diva!

Also in this episode is more Tina pining over Blaine which really annoys me for some reason. She finally won a competition by singing good old Madonna. Yay for her, what a transformation from season 1.

Mr. Schu is getting married next week!  YAY!  I totally called it, something was going to happen between Finn and Mrs. Pillsbury though.  There’s another inappropriate relationship.

Also – I really didn’t like any of the songs in this episode, so it was a real bummer.  Hopefully next week’s Vanentine’s/Wedding episode will provide better songs!  What did you think of this week’s songs?  Think Mr. Schu and Ms. Pillsbury will actually wind up getting married next week?  Sound off in the comments!

Here’s What You Missed On Glee…

When we last saw our gleeks they were merrily singing Christmas tunes from New York City to good old Lima, Ohio. If you haven’t seen this episode yet, you better catch up before Glee returns this Thursday, January 24th.

In New York Kurt received a Christmas visit from his father – and Blaine! The two sang a Christmas duet as they skated through Central Park. The happiness was short lived, though, once Kurt’s father dropped the bomb that he was diagnosed with cancer. Back at McKinley, Britney and Sam prepare for the Mayan apocalypse by getting married – only to live through the December 21st doomsday and find out that Coach Beast provided them with a fake wedding. In the spirit of Christmas togetherness, Puck and Jake brought together their nemesis mothers. Meanwhile, Coach Sylvester provided her secret Santa pick of Marley’s mother with a grand Christmas and enough money to send Marley to a therapist who specializes in eating disorders. A whole bunch of Christmas merriness ensues with many musical numbers surrounding Christmas.

I am really looking forward to Glee returning from their winter hiatus. This week’s episode is entitled “Sadie Hawkins Dance,” so I’m foreseeing a lot of interesting couple match-ups this week. I am also hearing something about a cheating scandal from Sectionals which would only be the easy way out for the Glee writers. What is a season where you have nothing to compete for and nothing to work and practice towards? So we’ll just say they cheated, and New Directions wins? Easily predictable- which Glee is definitely becoming recently. We also have some exciting songs to look forward to this week including a current favorite of mine: “Locked Out Of Heaven” by Bruno Mars which will be sung by Marley, Unique and the girls.

Sound off in the comments about what you are looking forward to seeing in the second half of season 4! Rachel and Finn back together? The return of mean Sue? The wedding of Ms. Pillsbury and Mr. Shue? Let me know!
