Thriller / Heads Will Roll
Rin says: I can’t say I loved any of the songs from this ep, but I guess the production of it was too good to pass up. Very cool makeup and costumes. Even if they didn’t do thriller justice.
Sophy says: It was fine, but it was… boring. Predictable. Eh. I’m so bored with Glee musically these days. But at least this one wasn’t woeful like Karofsky’s warm-up, straight off the radio like the Puck/Rachel duet, or completely random like The Warblers’ number.
(And wow, Dalton Academy really is an absurd Utopian haven for gay boys isn’t it? Because, yes, straight dudes can dig show tunes and all that, I’m with them there… but damn that rendition of Bills, Bills, Bills was camp beyond the telling of it. The kids at that school aren’t just accepting, they’re almost Stepfordish in their complete approval and embracing of the gay. And that kind of makes the whole Dalton plotline less inspiring and more cartoonish.)
“Oh and Brittany here’s a note for you, handwritten and in crayon from the Human Cannon saying how much it misses you.”
Rin says: Oh my god, the drawing It’s things like this that make me wish Glee wasn’t experiencing such a lull in quality because they do actually have great comedic moments. I used to find myself loll-ing every episode, but nowadays it’s literally only at Brittany, Sue or Rachel.
Sophy says: Oh god, sometimes this show is so hilarious. I really wish it would get back to being sharp and comedic on a more regular basis. It was so much more fun back in the day.
And seriously… two little baby twin cannons back at home, and one more on the way. I CAN’T.
The girls on the sideline in their Zombie makeup jumping up and down.
Rin says: SLIM PICKINGS.
I’m only suggesting the girls (sans Lauren) being cute on the sidelines with their zombie makeup and cheering.
Sophy says: Yeah um. We were really scraping the bottom of the barrel here. Rin, I’m surprised you didn’t manip Lauren out for me. Surprised and disappointed.
Best ‘Brittany is random’ Moment
“How many M’s are there in the letter R?”
“Make an X.”
Rin says: JESUS M’S IN THE LETTER R. Genius.
Seriously. I would probably discontinue watching if it wasn’t for these two and Rachel.
Sophy says: This line. Absolute genius.
Rophy Says No!
Karofsky getting to join in / BRAINSSSS
Rin says: I don’t know if I hate Karofsky more than Lauren. I think I hate them equally. They’re both just AWFUL, but Karofsky getting to join in with the Glee team only after he sees that everyone is cheering them on was so WEAK. WEAK!!
And the way the football team had to win was stupid too. THEY COULD HAVE JUST WON STRAIGHT UP, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE.
Sophy says: I hate Lauren more. I really, really do. More on that in the next Gleecap.
But yeah, the Karofsky plotline is just… 8-). Karofsky is a douchebag who should have been expelled. And I don’t like the actor. And I don’t like that they went there with ‘He’s a homophobe! So he’s gay!’ and then went one step further, indulging in the cliche of having him be ~totally awesome at Glee club, don’t you know.
ESPECIALLY SINCE HE’S NOT ACTUALLY.
I want to punch Will Schuester a lot these days, but my fingers actually made fists when he did that *sadface* AWESOME! reaction after the bullshit warm-up piece. I just. Go away Will. Forever.
ALSO, THEY WON BY WEARING SOME STUPID MAKEUP AND SAYING BRAINS A LOT. I CAN’T. THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE MOST EMBARRASSING THING THAT’S EVER BEEN BEFORE MY EYES.
Head In Hands
Rachel Berry in a gridiron uniform.
Rin says: Seriously, is there anything cuter? IS THERE? LOOK AT HER FACE IN ALL THE CAPS. Also, the way she went to kneel down with her one leg sticking out like a dancer Perfect.
Sophy says: OH MY GOD. HER SMILE. SHE IS AMAZING AND WONDERFUL. Everyone who says she ruins the show can fuck off. She makes the show. Seriously if the show was just her, Sue Sylvester, Brittany, and Kurt, the world would be a better place. Maybe Emma and John Stamos could stop by occasionally. Because they are awesome.
Rachel and Tina lying down on the floor. Tina picking up the ball and running.
Rin says: This is what Rophy would be like playing football. Sophy would stay down, always, but if I saw an opportunity, I would damn well grab that ball and make a run for it.
And I’m asian and stuff.
Sophy says: So asian.
I think my favourite thing though, was that the lying down was heralded. As in it was actually the plan. God, I love you Rachel Berry. I really, really do.
Rin loves Tina. Because she’s asian.
Quinn Glory Shot
Rin says: HEADBANDS. (More on that in 214.)
Look at her! SHE’S SO FUCKING LOVELY.
Sophy says: She is the loveliest of lovely.
Although really, Rophy would like to take this opportunity to say a final NO to this Finn/Quinn bullshit. I can’t even deal with the stupid of this kiss. I just. It’s like a big tidal wave of stupid and we’re just these poor little baby cannon twins bobbing hopelessly in its midst.
And there’s another one on the way.
