Well, my butt is totally going to look like a slushie after I sit and catch up on all the back episodes of Glee because I am finally good and truly hooked on this show. I know, late to the party, but I wasn’t sure how much I’d like it after the pilot, and I felt kind of like it wasn’t for me since I didn’t do show choir or any of that in high school (I’m hopelessly uncoordinated and a pretty shitty singer, so not the world’s best combo for song and dance numbers).
Anyway, I kept hearing more and more (and more) about it, so I finally DVRed an episode and then even more finally got around to watching it. I enjoyed it enough to record this week’s, which really put the final nail in my coffin. I love this show and I have gotten Billy hooked too. He was trying to work while I watched it, but I kept laughing like a damn lunatic every time I heard the bumblebee song and saw a hand carrying a Big Gulp (I know they used a generic name, but it totally was a Big Gulp and I was drinking one at the time, so I would know). I also loved how Rachel stood there and scrunched up her face waiting for it. My mom had a cat who would do the exact same thing when it was bad and saw the squirt bottle coming out–he knew what was coming but he was too dumb to run. :)
So I’m definitely late to this party, like I said, and I know I have catching up to do, but in the meantime, I had a couple questions that I was hoping some Gleekers would be able to help me out with. Ready? Okay.
First of all, and maybe most importantly, is the slushie an ongoing thing, or was that just this episode? Because I loved it and kind of hope it’s a running joke.
Secondly, I think I need some backstory on what’s up with the teacher and the guidance counselor. Here’s what I’ve gotten so far–she likes him but she’s secretly engaged to the coach guy but it’s acknowledged that she’s settling for him. The teacher is married and his wife is pregnant and may also be Claire’s biological mother from Heroes, but he might kind of like the guidance counselor? I’m just a little fuzzy on their relationship with each other. But I sure did love that wedding dress shopping scene, where she came out looking so pretty in her Audrey Hepburn dress.
Moving on, I get that Rachel is pining after Finn but I haven’t really had time to get especially attached to that relationship, so I was enjoying her with Mohawk. Plus, he is hotness squared and I love his surly attitude. And I swear to God, when he busted out his solo and said it was a tribute to a beloved Jewish singer, I yelled out from my couch, “PLEASE BE NEIL DIAMOND!” And what do you know? Made my night.
My other favorite part was right at the end when Finn came up to the gay kid because he had to throw a slushie in his face, but he sat there hemming and hawing about it until finally the gay kid just threw it on his own face and then told him to go think about whether or not any of his football friends would do that for him, and then demanded to be taken to a spa and was immediately ushered into the girls bathroom. Hahahaha! I think gay kid is my new favorite character.
Thanks, everybody who stuck around for this in spite of me not knowing anyone’s name and having a lot of questions. I bet by next week I’m all caught up, but in the meantime, anyone that can help me out would be hugely appreciated, and I’d love to chat more in the comments about Glee, which as everyone else already knows, is awesome!
