    Finn spoiler:
    Finn with be in NYC with Rachel and Kurt fairly soon.
    I didn't pursue the details very far because I don't want to know too many spoilers but there it is.

    Joining tumblr has resulted in my knowing way more spoilers than I'd like. So I've given up a bit. But I can spoiler tag and pass them along if people want me to.


    WHY are they doing another Britney episode? The first one was one of my least favorites of all time.

    in general I don't like the theme episodes.

    I don't mind the split location format, I guess, but as mentioned, I'd rather see the new kids in Lima than the returning ones. Artie and Tina are great but Ryan doesn't seem to want them to be central characters, Brittany was fantastic as a bit player, but the character shouldn't be a central one, and Blaine is just not that strong of a character to me. Without Kurt, there's no point to him. The lunch lady and daughter storyline is the strongest - but ultimately, everything at Lima has run its course. Glee Club won, Sue had her baby, Schu and Mrs Schu got married....what's left?

    maybe finn can shoot himself in the face and they can replace him with someone younger who can sing and dance

    Maybe it will be like those people who survive a life-threatening experience and wind up with some ability or talent they did not have before, like speaking another language.

    Just screened "Pitch Perfect" today and fans of "Glee" will enjoy it.

    It has some raunch (takes place in college) and one or two completely gross-out moments, but the audience was laughing the whole way through.

    Exceptional vocals? Not really. But some fun numbers and one massive mash-up that will put "Glee's" to shame.

    They also had one scene that we just saw in the season premiere, but obviously "Pitch" filmed months ago.

    Really? I'm bored. Liked the 1st episode a million times more.

    ETA: Really liked the ending, though, with Marley singing Everytime (my favorite Britney song).

    This was the much better Britney episode. It actually made me like Brittany for the first time since season one.

    The guy playing Brody is named Dean Geyer.

    He's an "Australian Idol" contestant who definitely got a Hollywood makeover when he got to America.

    Funny you mention Chord because I walked past him this afternoon. He was having lunch (well, just drinking) on Sunset. He's very fair in person.

    Loved Brittany's confusion of a George Washington photo being Glenn Close! :rofl:

    At least she recognized the photo of President Obama. :lol:

    I liked the NYC stuff mostly. I don't get the whole Britney Spears thing so the music bored me to death. I hate that they are trying to force Jarley on us with out even bothering to do any character development for either of them. I do not care about these people. You cannot make me ship them. Sam and Brit were cute together. And she was so sad staring at the computer at the end.

    But yeah, I liked ep 1 better. I'm looking forward to 3 and 4, though.

    That was about the only redeeming moment in this whole sad episode.

    They either need to spin off the NYC cast into their own series (say mid-season) or let them go. It will be practically impossible to develop new characters to care about and try and cling to the old ones as well.

    I liked the first one better too.
    I am not interested in the new people too.

    They are giving them all the focus and ignoring the old ones.:mad:

    Where the heck are Kurt and Rachel living that they can afford a big freaking warehouse to live in?! And where they get the money when they have no jobs? Oh yea, TV.

    I spent way more time than necessary wondering where they got bicycles when they had no furniture at all.

    Didn't Lover Boy say it took him 45 minutes on the train to get there? And since he lives in the college dorms, that means Kurt and Rachel are 45m-1h away from school. That must be how they can afford such a big place, lol!

    Wikipedia says he was on Terra Nova as well. From what I can tell, there was only one single released from his album: If You Don't Mean It

    Does this represent his pre-Hollywood non-makeover period? Because both are STEAMING HOT as far as I'm concerned!! :swoon:

    The same place the vast majority of college kids get money and the same way Rachel is paying for a college education when she has no job. Parents.

    Me too. newFinn > Lima Finn. I'm also liking Kate as newSue

    Back in Lima newRachel and newPuck aren't that interesting, even with the newQuinn twist. Brittany and Sam were cute though.

    At this point I'd say get Blaine to NYC and scrap Lima all together. I'd be fine if they found a way to get Sue to NYC too, since I still love her. Hey, Boy Meets World found a way to have Mr Feenie follow the cast through junior high, high school, and college, so I'm sure it is possible to make Sue a professor or something. :lol:

    The idea of Professor Sue is more believable than Kurt getting that job at Vogue.

    The music on this week's episode is great, including a reprisal of Blaine's "Teenage Dream."

    Plus two songs I grew up with Duncan Sheik's "Barely Breathing" and No Doubt's "Don't Speak."

    Santana returns too, singing Taylor Swift.

    Is anyone else watching tonight?

    OMG! I can't believe Blaine did that! I get that he was alone, but really? yikes!

    To be quite honest while I did enjoy parts of it and at least it was more consistent, I think this is going to create a huge backlash with the fans. Granted I know you can't always be hunky in the sky and there has to be shakeups now and then but this is going to drive the ubers into the stratosphere. I know Ryan Murphy wants to shake up the show but I fear this may be the beginning of the end. I have a sense that this will be the final season.

    Loved the episode, but tonight's ep mades me angry about one thing--WHERE WAS TINA AND MIKE'S BREAK-UP SONG?!?!?

    Loved The Scientist. Also, Emma and Will need to sing more often together. Loved their part.

    Did Glee just break up every single major couple there is? lol.

    Oh well. I've full confidence that most of them will be back together by the season's end if not just a few episodes. Rachel and Finn are the bread and butter of the show and you can't have them not be together anymore. That's what I think, anyway. :p

    Well, we don't know if Sam and Mercedes are still together.

    The longest standing couple now may be Sugar and Artie.
