I have to say that this week’s Glee episode was one of the best. The best original song, by far, was Loser Like Me, performed as a duet by Lea Michele and Cory Monteith with the rest of the crew doing back up vocals. I love how the song ties into the early promotional posters of Glee as well. The song has a really nice positive message as well.
I think I’ve listened to it about 10 times in a row. New Directions’ performance at Regionals was stellar. The best moments for me are when you can see the real personality of the actors shine through. This tends to happen for Lea Michele sometimes, as her personality is totally different from her character. I also enjoy seeing them have fun, and during this episode, they did have a lot of fun.
I also liked the crowd during Regionals. The clapping and the cheering was really nicely added to the performance.
I’ve often said that Glee is like bottle happiness and this episode is no exception. Love this episode, hope to see more like this in the future.
For some reason, I forgot to post these and as I’m cleaning up my txt file, that doubles as my to-do list, I decided to post them right now.
Who is that guy?
Brittany when she sees Puck with his new do
-I feel like the guy who lost all of his hair and lost all of his strength.
Puck and Santana
I’m a sex shark. If I stop moving, I die.
You think that he’s going to stick around if you can’t sing, if you’re a vocal cripple.
He’s an idiot and his mother won’t let me eat bacon. But at least if you guys are dating, I won’t have to spend so much time listening to his insane theories on how Super Mario Bros changed civilization.
I’m such a steamy mug of hot chocolate that one of the studdliest guys in school wants to use me to harvest the mojo.
I’m not a box. There’s more than 4 sides to me.
So you’re pretty much the only guy in school that I haven’t made out with because I thought you were a capital G gay.
I am like Tinkerbell, I need applause to live.
-Use protection if things get serious.
-Does he mean a burglar alarm?
Kurt’s dad and Brittany
This song should be arrested for the crime of sucking.
I’m going to stop you. You had me at sex tape.
I can’t remember how to leave.
Thanks Mr. Schue, you’re a really good teacher, even if everyone is calling you a manwhore.
I’ve mentioned a few times that Glee is like happiness put in a bottle. I’m still amazed at the Power of Madonna episode. Like A Prayer was amazing. In this episode, the last number, Total Eclipse of the Heart was also incredible.
It seems to me quite logical on how math classes should proceed. The professor presents some theory, with theorems and their demonstration, as well as definitions and propositions, before venturing into a slew of examples. For some reason, this is completely absent from my classes in Taiwan. The examples. I don’t know what these profs are thinking, but examples are paramount for students to understand some of the theory. OK, my complex analysis prof is good. he gives examples and answers questions well¹.
I really loved Glee. For once, it’s a musical show that I really like. The numbers in the pilot were really entertaining, and I watched them a few times, especially the last one, Don’t Stop Believing. Now that September has come around, we can all look forward to new episodes of Glee.
As a second episode, I didn’t find Showmance as strong as the pilot, probably because more money was involved in the pilot. Even if the actors were all singing on the track, they weren’t singing during taping of the show. Some of them were badly lip-syncing, which is just annoying.
Anyway, the show wasn’t bad, but I was a bit disappointed by this episode. I hope the musical numbers get better in the next few episodes.
