  • HERE WE GO AGAIN

    Glee "Lights Out" Review: (Another) Very Special Episode of Glee

    Watching "Lights Out" was like running down a checklist of pre-selected sermon topics.

  • Episode Summary

    When the power goes Will gets the members of New Directions to "unplug" and perform acoustic numbers. Isabelle Wright enlists Kurt to volunteer at the Vogue.com charity event, along with Rachel and Santana. Blaine encourages Sue to return to McKinley, and thinks there's more to the story about the day the gun went off.

    • Missed Brittany!!

      8.5
      @hdjaeger Heather Morris is pregnant, so i suppose that it could be the reason she is not in the episode, I missed her too. The episode was very good, and I cant wait to see what is going to happen... its been moving very slowly though, no regionals or nationals... how many episodes are left?? there are just ten of thme now, arent they supposed to be at least 12 to compete??moreless

      Does anyone now why Heather Morris wasn't in this episode? Nobody of the gleeclub mentioned Brittney, or did I miss it?
    • Glee Dialog so Bag, Makes Me Want to UNPLUG the TV

      6.5
      This episode was written by Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who usually writes some of the better Glee episodes. However, this episode was poorly written. Plot threads were cobbled together kind of at random, and the dialogue came across like a cheesy after school special. Santana hugging her "inner child", Ryder and Kitty spilling their sappy beans all over the place, and the whole ballet thing was just a weird excuse to sing that one song about the ballet. Ugh, pretty disappointing. Although, there was a lot of focus on Ryder in this episode, and I have to say he's a talented performer. Yet, there are so many characters in Glee now, that it's sad when one of my favourites, Blaine didn't even get a line, did he? Rachel, Kurt and others got very few lines. I feel like the creators should simplify the show over the next couple seasons.moreless
    • Lights Out & Not Much Else

      7.0
      I continued to be disappointed by Glee.

      The fact that a high school would be still open in the wake of complete power outage just didn't make sense to me.



      However I gotta admit that I liked the whole acoustic theme of this episode it was nice to see all the Glee kids sing with just their voices.



      The New York section was okay I liked Santana still not sure what she wanted to do with her life.



      Not knowing who is catfishing Ryder is still getting to me and I don't know why, I really want to know who it is!



      So in light pun intended of last week's horrendous episode this one was a bit better but I wasn't wowed.
