That makes three solid episodes in a row for Glee, which can only mean that next week will be absolute shit.
This was the best that Sue has been since the Superbowl episode in Season 2. I loved that they finally found an excuse for Jane Lynch to be ridiculous - and it came with a solo to boot. The writers are finally remembering the one of the reasons that Glee became so popular in the first place was the wacky sense of humor that accompanied even the most serious moments.
The fight scene between Finn and Brody was probably the most 'hardcore' that this show will ever get, but it became somewhat creepy when Finn told Brody to stay away from his future wife. That line almost made it sound like an abusive relationship just waiting to happen. I liked that they finally gave Brody a little bit of range to play with. He'd been so one-note earlier this season, and it was nice to see some character shine through.
Ryder's online chat was an interesting note to end the episode on, and I can't help but wonder where all of this is going. Is he being Catfished? Is Unique getting payback? This is one of the more interesting storylines that Glee has come up with in a while, and I'm curious to see how it plays out.
I'm also interested to see how exactly Blaine and Sam plan to take down Sue. I'm wondering if her being fired could possibly push us in the direction of a McKinley-free Season Five. It would almost be too bad, the newbies are really starting to click with the rest of the cast.
Originally posted by OliverThe wife *LOVED* Sue as Nicki Minaj. I still have to ask myself...who the hell is Nicki Minaj? Yeah, Superbass singer, but what else has she done?
I loved the BSB/Nsync mashup. I admit, I think boy band music is charming if not a bit boring. I wasn't aware Nsync and BSB were feuding at some point.
Nicki Minaj is one of the new judges on American Idol this year, but other than that I don't know much about her. Minaj and Mariah Carey are constantly feuding on the show, which is why the mash-up/feud between Blaine and Sue was a combination of I Still Believe and Superbass.
As for Nsync and the Backstreet Boys, they were feuding in the sense that teenage girls couldn't decide which band they loved more, they never actually had a public beef with each other.
It's probably a bad sign when the best part of this episode is watching Cleveland get hit in the nuts. Manatee jokes? Not funny. Plot? Not funny. Cleveland? Unlikable. The episode had its high points, like the deaf jock and the dead Jack-O-Lantern....
