I love Blaine / Darren Criss. He's funny.

So Blaine is a Junior? Guess he'll be the big star once all the Seniors graduate and leave.

I'm glad Schuester ripped Quinn a new one. That entitled self-proclaimed skank deserved a smack since season 1.


Word.

I will say that although I really like Mercedes, if I don't get some serious Rachel and Blaine West Side Story dueting-time as Tony and Maria I am going to be very cranky.

Mr. Schu has definitely grown some balls. Next thing he'll actually be shtupping his girlfriend.

I had cable problems and missed the last five minutes, it blinked out during "Something's Coming." I think Darren's a bit of a ham but he does have a great voice, the best out of the guys on the show except for Schu himself and wonderful NPH as a guest star.

I like Coach Bieste's utterly unPC approach to things, actually.

I liked the episode. I liked the continuity and the character analyses.

I found Rachel annoying. One, wanting your boyfriend to go to New York for college is one thing. But why the exact same school? Two, nothing wrong with being a mechanic.

And why is Finn working to save money for college and Kurt isn't? Due to football, Finn is more likely to get a scholarship.

I think Kurt is pretty set. Remember that his Dad got him an Escalade and I don't think Kurt is really hurting for money.

Finn, meanwhile, comes from a total lower working class background. It's nice that his mom married Burt and therefore became part of Burt/Kurt's family, but I don't think Finn feels as secure financially for college considering he'll only be part of that family for 2 years by the time college rolls around.

Anyway, I'm already liking this season. I know it's premature since we're only two episodes in, but I'm not afraid of the direction it's going the way I sort of was with season 2 with the first few episodes sort of giving me those signals.

As for Blaine being a junior, who else is a junior? Are Artie and Tina juniors?

Yeah. It was confirmed in the first episode of season three.

I can't wait until Brittany wins the election and becomes class president. That will be a riot. :rofl:

I'm glad Schuester ripped Quinn a new one. That entitled self-proclaimed skank deserved a smack since season 1.Word times 2. That might be the most I've ever liked Will, just because I was so glad to see someone FINALLY call her on all her shit.

I know it's only two episodes, but already it seems like the writing is so much tighter this season than last. It actually seems like we might get some, I don't know, focused, coherent storytelling this season? Maybe even consistent characterization and continuity? Rather than a bunch of gratuitous guest stars and theme episodes haphazardly thrown around the stupid, melodramatic, after-school special that ate the show.

To be honest, I don't really think Finn is the kind of player who earns a scholarship. Not that glee is dedicated to accuracy, but if he were going to be offered one, he'd already have offers.


I was really happy overall with this episode. Quinn rethinking giving Beth up doesn't really surprise me. Just because you were sure about something when you made the choice doesn't necessarily mean you won't regret it in the end. But the idea of her being able to get custody of Beth is laughable, so I hope they're not trying to take that plot line seriously. You can't "get full custody" of a child you have surrendered your parental rights to.

I think the biggest problem with Kurt's Romeo was that he wasn't trying to act like Romeo. He was just trying to prove he could be "butch" or something (Romeo is not really the role I'd have chosen for that). I don't think he'd have much actual trouble playing the same white bread Tony that shows up in every high school production of West Side Story.

Although I will say that Blaine is EXACTLY the guy who plays Tony in your high school production of West Side Story.

I wish they'd change the musical and not to West Side Story. I don't know if it would be too meta, but RENT would be a great vehicle for this group.

Yeah, but I feel like it would end up with the same controversial story line as Rocky Horror did.

I'm glad they picked WSS, because it's the sort of musical a high school might actually put on. Some schools will do Rent, but not nearly as many.

Plus West Side Story is one of those musicals that people take for granted because it's so popular and overused. I think because of its stature, people forget just how brilliant the choreography, music, and book really are when done well.

The first high-school musical I ever saw was WSS, when I was in seventh grade. Those seniors seemed All Grown Up and the guy who played Tony was a dead ringer for Blaine, and I was smiling watching him last night.

He was also very olive skinned with black hair and now that I think of it would have made a great Bernardo.
