I didn't hate Glee! I didn't hate Glee! Here are some quick thoughts on last night's non-sucktastic episode.
-About five minutes in I knew this was written by Ian Brennan. He is the only Glee writer who makes me laugh with the show and not at it. Four for you Ian Brennan!
-Ricky Martin is adorable. He should act more! If he's not too busy being the new Gweneth, I'm voting for a return to General Hospital, where he can bring in some viewers that James Franco didn't.
-Artie's joining in mooning over Ricky Martin and then his subsequent reaction made me laugh out loud. A fun, silly little moment.
-Finn, It's pronounced Adelphi with an I not an EEE. You should learn that if you do end up going there.
-NeNe Leakes has been way more fun than I thought she would be. I won't be mad if she sticks around.
-For some strange reason I'm not hating on Sam and Mercedes. He has finally made her a character and not a caricature. Maybe they should hook him up with Tina. And Artie.
-The insanity of Will's number was ridiculous in a good (you know...intentional) way. It brought me back to Popular.
-Brittany dances! Where was that during the Michael Jackson show?
-Emma and Will were kind of cute. They should play them more. Although maybe they were kind of cute because they don't play them more.
-Sue's wanting a baby, Will's not being able to speak Spanish and the Finn/Rachel engagement are all crazy stupid but weren't overplayed so I could just ignore them and focus on the funny and the music.
Was this episode super meaningful? No. But that's kind of what I liked about it. If the show would remember it's a comedy more, focus on the core characters, let the talent do what they do best I might not want to put a fork in my eye every week. This was light and fun and totally fork free.
