Glee-cap: A tribute to Britney's downward spiral...and more of her music
It's Britney, b*tch. At first I rolled my eyes at the thought of another Spears tribute episode, but then I thought about all the songs Glee covered the first time around and quickly fired up my PVR so I could watch it over and over. Giving Heather Morris the spotlight once again can only mean good things. Plus, many trailers for Pitch Perfect during commercial breaks! How awesome is that movie soundtrack going to be?! That's rhetorical - it's going to be AMAZING. An acapella version of Ace of Base's "The Sign"? Come on now! How couldn't that rock?! But I digress...quickly, roses! Thorns!
Roses: To another episode dedicated to Brittany S. Pearce. "I thought I was doing a voiceover." We should all thank the powers that be that Heather Morris toured with Beyonce and was therefore recruited to teach the "Single Ladies" dance on the first season of Glee. This whole episode is going to be a winner because of its Brittany focus.
One requisition: For a move to Happy Ville. (I also am not a fan of math.)
Quote of the night: "Tough love feels a lot like mean."
Truth: The tango is all about sex. So is Kate Hudson's wardrobe. Hello second week of fishnet stockings.
Roses: To the pop-tastic Blaine and Artie "Boy/Boyfriend" mash-up. The only thing that can make Britney Spears better is adding a touch of the Biebs.
Roses: To ALL of Unique's wisdom. "Oh, honey, no backseat." Seconded! Poor man's Blake Lively, you need to listen. (Also, if you couldn't tell, this is the moment where they set up the whole "I can change the bad boy with real love because he's just misunderstoon" plot line for Marley. And Jake's "love changed me from a player to a one-gal guy." You read it here first.)
Thorns: To being generally bored by Tina. And Samuel or Joe -- whatever his Glee name is.
Roses: For Glee's tribute to Britney Spear's umbrella incident and the general homage to her meltdown phase.
Roses: To Jake and Marley's mash-up. I've been listening to it on repeat since it was released on iTunes days ago. I hate to be the one that says it but: Jake + Marley > Finn + Rachel.
Cold showers for all: It wasn't exactly a tango, but "Oops I Did It Again" was definitely not Shrek.
Two thumbs up: For double the Puckerman! Mark Salling, you've been missed.
Roses: For the best worst lip-syncing ever. EVER.
Thorns and an eye roll: First new Rachel (aka Marley) is all about the jaunty newsboy cap and now real Rachel and her berets. Enough with the twee accessories, Glee wardrobe department!
Roses: To the blossoming friendship between Brit-brit and Trouty Mouth. These two blondies might be a delightful duo for this season.
Knock knock: "You are not Finn." <-- both mine and Kurt's reaction to hot dancer shower friend.
Ouch: Rejection from Rachel Berry has to hurt. But good recovery, sir!
Roses: To Marley's Blake Lively impression. It is getting better by the second! Hopefully she pulls a Serena Van Der Woodsen stat and takes out the annoying new Cheerio.
