206 — Never Been Kissed

Best Song

The Girls – Start Me Up / Livin’ On A Prayer




Rin says: Look, we all had the same thought.

Rin says: I love Emily’s face the most. She’s so enthralled. She’s ‘thralled.

Sophy says: Thralled and also somewhat appalled, I think. Katie and Effy are just condescendingly approving. Naomi is doing her eyeroll thing because that’s what she does. And Panda… oh Panda.

I enjoyed Livin’ on a Prayer mostly on account of the girls being cute as hell when they’re trying to be rockstars, and also because Livin’ on a Prayer and I have a long and special history together involving karaoke bars. And Skins.

I didn’t really enjoy the interference of Start Me Up though. I think I’m anti mash-up in general. Puck’s Bob Marley Bono business did not work for me either. And the guys at the end? No. No, no, no.

BUT YEAH. This was cute. Even if it felt completely random and meaningless in the context of the episode.


///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Best Brittany is random Moment

“I’m not tossing the baby out with the bath water here.”
“I’ve totally done that.”


Rin says: I bet the writers spend the entire time thinking of ways to include random Brittany moments. And then write the remainder of the episode around it.

Sophy says: I’m scared of the day there isn’t a moment for this category. May it never, never come.


///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Best Scene



Rin says: I mean, I didn’t love love love this. But I liked it. I like the whole Kurt/Blaine thing, ’cause Blaine mostly seems cool. Let’s just hope he doesn’t become one big lecture.

Sophy says: This episode felt really disjointed and messy to me, so it’s hard to isolate a specific scene as my favourite. But I did like Blaine and I do think he has the potential to have great chemistry with Kurt, if, as Rin says, they don’t make the whole thing an extended after school special. I think what I mostly loved about these scenes at the We Love Gays school was Chris Colfer’s face. Honestly, even when I feel Kurt is being written horribly, Colfer’s acting almost always sucks me in. And in these scenes he’s just so hopeful and wistful and lovely. He really made me flash back to those times in my life when I’ve felt lost or lonely or like an outsider and have caught a glimpse of a place I might belong and started to think the world might not be all bad. Because that part isn’t about homosexuality and homophobia; that part is pretty universal. And it was very well played.


///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Biggest LOL

“I’m going to have go straight to the wound care center and stare at some wounds.”


Rin says: THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO SEE. More Sue in the Biggest LOL department. Cause remember in S1 when she was the best thing on TV? Yeah, she needs to reclaim that a little.

Sophy says: OH SUE. Just the way she said Wounds. Amazing.


///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Rophy says NO!

Artie trying to get Brittany back.


Rin says: Every episode I grow to hate Artie more.

And I do not want Artie/Brittany, ever.

Sophy says: Oh honestly this was such utter, utter bullshit. I’m not saying this as a Brittana stan, because I’m not really a Brittana stan – I could be… but they’re going to have to show me more before I’ll sign my heart away.

But just no. NO. This made no sense. Brittany and Artie had sex as part of a stupid plotline in one measley episode, and there was nothing romantic or emotional about it and he was a complete turd afterwards and please. Just stop with this, Glee. STOP.

And I’m going to have to say no to one more thing. This:


WHAT THE FUCK WAS THIS? Is this their attempt to make me like Shoe-face again? Because it’s not working. I like Bieste. I like the potential of Bieste. I like the actress. I thought this scene was poignant up until this point when I wanted to vomit/punch Schuster. I mean really, the woman has just poured her heart out to him about how she’s never been kissed and a kiss, to her, is a doorway to hope and happiness and future with someone and okay WHAT. Why in God’s name does Schuster think a completely empty futureless pity-kiss from him is the answer? Is he really that fucking arrogant and vain and brainless and foul?

And what the FUCK was that dialogue? “Do you really think I’m pretty, Will? ;;)” I get it. She looks butch but she’s not. She’s all womany and soft with a mushy, soft womany heart. But does she have to be act like a moronic schoolgirl swooning over basically-the-quarterback for us to get that???

I’M SORRY I’M JUST SO ANGRY AND I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW NONE OF THE WRITERS OR PRODUCERS OR ACTORS OBJECTED TO THIS SHIT AND VIGOROUSLY AND THEREBY PREVENTED IT FROM EVER SEEING THE LIGHT OF DAY.

Most Rophy Moment

“SPIES!!!”


Rin says: I snorted. She is so ridic, I love her…..which is sort of a backhand way in saying I love Rophy?

Sophy says: I love how she uses her middle finger. And I’m going to take this moment to say that I’ve noticed the tide has turned on Rachel in fandom and a lot of people seem to hate her and well… SCREW YOU ALL. Needs moar Rachel Berry. Always and forever.

I have to say though, Rin cheated by going ahead and choosing this moment without my consent. She knows perfectly well that the most Rophy moment in this episode was the following:

“How are we supposed to compete against a bunch of adorable old people?! :((

Sometimes it’s hard for Rin, being the R in Rophy.


///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Head In Hands



Rin says: Duh. LOOK AT HIS LITTLE FACE AND HIS ENTHUSIASTIC CLAPPING. Ah Kurt.

Sophy says: OH MY GOD HE WAS SO ADORABLE I CAN’T EVEN.


///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Quinn Glory Shot



Rin says: Work it!

Sophy says: I love how she’s as appalled as I was by the ‘Jerks are so hot’ plotline. And yes, I know Mercedes and Tina are suitably appalled too, but Quinn does it better. Okay?

OKAY???

      Omg the pyjama switch, Rophy I’ll love you forever!! (And that’s the problem..)

      I want to go to a We Love Gays School. Though I’m a bit too old for school now. We didn’t have We Love Gays Schools back in my day, dammit lol!

      Chris Colfer is the cutest thing, I would marry just for his adorable little face aww! *squeals*

      I think Bieste is pretty! And Brittany agrees, or at least likes her boobs lol.

      And Artie needs to gtfo. Brittana forever 💗💗

    Awesome recap… I watched this episode and got so caught up in the MISOGYNY of it, I missed the Skins comparison. I’m going to burn in hell, and not just ordinary hell, the one where the only person you get to talk to is that ass-hat Shue!! OH NOES!
    Also, I have maintained that I love you both equally since I discovered this awesome den of obsessive, beautiful inequity but guess what guys, that all just changed, RIN you’re my favourite!!! Mutual Rachel love ensures that should you ever need a vital organ, I will find someone who is a match and cut it out for you, if anyone ever comes at you with a baseball bat I will run up behind jamie brittain (because seriously, WHO ELSE WOULD DO THAT?!) and smack him over his stupid head with frying pan, if you ever run for election I will shout cunt at your opponents, and I will go on the rob to ensure you always have Garibaldi’s, such is my new devotion to you! :D

    PS Garibaldi’s aren’t that expensive to be honest, I’m pretty sure I could afford them, unless you wanted to build a house out of them or something, in which case I’d probably work it out anyway, I just really LOVE the expression “On the rob”, it makes me laugh a lot. This PS is supposed to reassure you that I’m not some hardened criminal, but I offered to maim numerous people and shout obscenities, so to say it’s a tad redundant :(

    My friend was telling me about the Glee rendition of “Living on a Prayer” and how she really didn’t like it, and I said, “I bet the Skins version was better.” And then this happened. And I screamed.

    I totally knew Darren Criss before glee and Sophy I think you’ll enjoy why. I’m just going to send you the link to the video and let you know that Darren wrote it with some of his friends and theres a sequel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmwM_AKeMCk

    I agree with EVERYTHING! I am liking Artie less and less. I’m sorry, but I do not feel bad for him. He brings everything on himself. And I liked the girls number, though agreed, I don’t like mash-ups either. They were so cute when they were rocking out. Also, hahaha spies! That was great. Blaine is great, agree with above person, watch the Very Potter Musical! And yeah, hated the Beiste/Shue pity kiss.

    (I’m so late to this party lol)

    I really love these Gleecaps (Just found out about them today) that you guys do, but i’m sorely disagreeing on the best scene thing, only because i don’t like this whole Gay Hogwarts thing they have going on. It just sounds too perfect with it’s “bully-free-blardyblarg”. And ‘Warblers’ kinda sounds like a drug or something you’d order with a milkshake. Just sayin’. *kanye shrug*

    Although i do like Kurt’s squirrelly clapping.
    And pajamas.
    And Quinn.
    Oh, Quinn.

    (Though – and I blame you guys for this! – I kind of ship their hair?)

    And I've just realized I've failed to voice my vast appreciation for the "Most Rophy Moment" category in your Gleecaps, but please know that I LOVE THAT CATEGORY always and forever &hearts

    omg pajama macro. So glad you guys did these. So glad I remembered that you guys did these

    Speaking of late to the party…

    Anyway, what the hell is between Santana’s legs in screencap 3? If I didn’t know better, I’d swear it was a hand with a mic in it. Can somebody help me out here, as this is going to eat at me until the mystery is solved.

    Thanks
