  • AMAZING!!!!!

    absoutely amazing! i don't know why people are saying that it's a bad episode its based around the late Michael Jackson... like Mercades said one word "Michael"... Smooth Criminal was by far the best performance and i also loved Human Nature but Smooth Criminal was AMAZING.... i loved it it was just absoutely great night of Glee. the whole Blaine/Sabastian thing was out of line not expected i knew something was gunna happen when they started singing "Bad"... that was predictible but i never thought it was going to be Blaine. anyways it was just a great episodemoreless
  • Purely amazing

    I'm kind of speechless right now, but still I have to write this, if not for any other reason just for a reminder later in the future. I was left speechless after the last episode "Yes/No" and I really couldn't believe that I would see an episode like that on any other day again. But here it is, the very next episode was the same beautiful, same powerful, same gleeful. I don't know what to say, but I'm truly amazed. I've been watching Glee since its beginning and it doesn't stop to shock me in a positive way (and yes, sometimes in a negative way too) in every single season. I love this show, I loved this episode and I loved the previous episode. The whole experience is a true inspiration for all of us. For the first time in a review I can honestly say "Keep up the excellent work".

    Oh and also, I think that 2cellos deserve some praise and mention - they were absolutely amazing and Glee was honoured to have them as guest stars.moreless
  • Great!

    LIke the review on the front page said, some numbers in this episode didn't make the grade, but others - wow!. Scream with Artie and Mike were fantastic, I knew that Kevin was a dancer, but I didnt realise how good he was. I would love to see Brittney dance with both Mike and Artie - that is Artie with legs, because I think with the 3 of them together, they are clearly the best dancers on Glee. Quinn looked great in her number, the dress and song suited her. Blaine with his "wanna be starting something" was great. For me, Santana and Sebastian's rendition of Smooth Criminal with the 2cellos - rocked! The ending with "Black & White" was good and rounded out the Michael tribute. The cutest song was "Human Nature" with Sam and Mercedies. I think Glee is now starting to hit its stride again and go back to what made it great.moreless
  • Who Needs Actors When All You Do Is Sing?

    What happened? There was maybe ten minutes of acting and the rest was singing. Michael was an icon, but the music overpowered the show.
  • I don't want to live on this planet anymore!

    Artist-themed episodes have been plaguing episodes of Glee since it's second season, which in my humble opinion began to kill the show. So here we have a Michael Jackson episode where they make up a story to go along with the songs. Not the other way around...

    The story was crap and the renditions of Michael Jackson's art-form were bubblegum-pop. No attitude. No anger. No heart. This would have pleased Michael that younger people will experience his music after viewing this but critically I'm sure he would be disappointed greatly.moreless
