    Glee is on a roll here! This episode had a great combination of character development, humor, and drama. The only thing I didn't like so much was Kurt's underhanded tactics - his character preaches about acceptance but he utilizes short-sighted manipulation to try to win Finn over from Rachel. That didn't sit well. Other than that though I really like this episode and I hope Glee continues to surprise me with its awesomeness until the end of the season!moreless

    This episode was absolutely amazing.



    An amazing episode, encompassing everything that is good about a show like Glee. Songs fit well with the episode and many voices were utilized in this feel good episode. Quinn continues to deal with some baby drama while Terri considers telling Will the truth but Kendra won't let her. Meanwhile, Will challenges The Correction Facility (special guest star Eve) to a scrimmage at the McKinnley auditorium which upsets the School for the Deaf and Dumb. And Sue is up to her old tricks yet again.



    "Hairography" begins by introducing the main focus of the episode, hairography. Special Guest Star Eve brings her Correction Facility students to a scrimmage at McKinnley where Rachel points out that they are using "hairography", or smoke and mirrors to win the competition. Rachel condemns this practice.



    Ironically, in the next scene, Rachel is using hairography to win over over Finn until she realizes that Kurt tricked her into it because he too loves Finn.



    The show incorporates many emotional, physical, and realistic aspects of high school into this episode mainly with the school for the deaf and dumb. A boy from the school begins talking the words to John Lennon's "Imagine" before Mercedes and then Artie and the Rachel and the rest of the gang join hands with the deaf students to sing the song. It was very inspiring. The only disappointing part of this song was that the boy talking the words was not included on the iTunes release.



    I also thought Terri and Kendra were once again hilarious, but I have to say that I am starting to feel some emotion for Terri in that she does actually love Will and that is why she is going through all of this trouble. Quinn and Puck had some excellent scenes, including one where Quinn sings "Papa Don't Preach" while trying to babysit Kendra's kids. However, yet again it is revealed that Puck is in fact and jerk. The end was a bit annoying and made me feel like Sue Sylvester is still in fact an evil person by giving Eve and the man from the deaf school the set list for sectionals but who knows, maybe Sue still has another underlying plan. After this, Tina gets her first full solo in which she sings "True Colors" which fit perfectly with the show.



    All in all, "Hairography" was a fitting title as every character used hairography and put on a show in the episode. Rachel used it to impress Finn. Kurt used it to trick Rachel. Puck used it to lie to Quinn. Terri and Kendra are definitely are using hairography to work their own agenda. With two episodes left, are things going to implode on Quinn? On Terri? On Will? On Finn? On Sue? Or what about Emma who seems to be getting less and less screen time? I'm sure Mercedes won't be keeping the baby daddy secret for too much longer. After all, she'll have to tell her best friend Kurt. And we all know what a gossip queen he is.moreless

    ME ENCANTOOO; claro que algunos momentos cae en lo tipico de Glee, de mostrar situaciones tontas y divertidas, pero el final le da el toque extra a este capitulo, cuando la banda de glee de la escual para sordos canta imagine y luego se les unen, creo que en ese momento uno se da cuenta que el show no es solamente de diversion, tambien da algo para pensar, mega recomiendo este capitulo, yo estuve a punto de llorar por que realmente se dan cuenta que lo importante del grupo no es la imagen, sino el talento y creo que la cancion de imagine quedo perfecta en este episodio, adoro Glee es lo maximomoreless
  • What every woman wants is...

    9.0
    I think no matter what kind of woman you are, mean, good, faithful, geek or cheerleader, all we want is love and someone to give us attention.



    Poor Quinn. She may have sound mean but hey, in love and war, anything counts and she did all she could to give herself another opportunity... Until she was completely disappointed.



    I don't understand guys like Puck. What does he want? He has the most popular girl in school and yet he is not pleased. I was pleasantly surprised to hear the actress playing Quinn sing. I don't know her name, but she was my favorite female singer in this episode. Her performance of Papa Don't Preach was very good.



    I wonder where the pregnancy plot is headed.moreless
  • Okay episode

    6.5
    Wow, Glee really is just off its game right now.

    I know a lot of people will disagree with me on this (and I'll get lots of thumbs downs) but I really just felt that this episode served not much of a purpose other than Sues activities. While I'm glad she was back, I really just felt bored with her which is a first.

    And the scene where Mercedes started singing with the deaf kids? That was one of the lamest things I've seen all year!

    But other than that, i am glad Glee was on but this was certainly not its best moment.moreless
