    Okay, I don't hate Glee. I just watched the first three episodes and I'm starting to like it. This episode, on the other hand, made no sense.



    I'm okay with shows that suspend reality occasionally. Obviously they need to to make the show more exciting than real life. But this was way over the top. The whole Kurt and the Single Ladies scenario made absolutely no sense - it felt contrived and the empathy I would have felt was ruined. Furthermore, the fact that Finn actually believed his sperm could travel like that... I understand that he didn't know only men have prostrates, but really? Really?



    The real reason I didn't like this episode was the conflicting messages it sent. First, Rachel was just horrid. She is clearly illogical in her thinking. She wants the Glee Club to succeed so she can be successful, and she pretty much knows that the only way for it to be successful is if she lets other people shine. Yet she falls prey to some random teacher who she got arrested and takes the limelight in his project instead? She strives for perfection, knows what it will take to attain that, and then does the complete opposite of what she should do? Weird and upsetting characterization.



    And I absolutely abhorred Kurt's storyline. I hate how he had to become the football kicker and win the game in order to make his dad proud of him. It would've been better if he was the kicker but missed the shot and then come out - that way, it really would've been like "oh, even though you're not a perfect son, I love you the way you Instead, it felt as if Kurt wouldn't have confided in his father unless he had made the football team win. It felt like Kurt had to conform to his dad's standards to be accepted.



    It was okay. I don't have a substantial opinion on the pregnancy part of the storyline yet, but we'll see about that.moreless

  • Kurt joins the football team; Quinn delivers some shocking news to Finn; Rachel loses the spotlight; and Sue keeps trying to ruin the Glee Club. Oh yeah, and a bunch of burly athletes do the 'Single Ladies' dance by Beyoncé... no, seriously. They do.moreless

    Ouch! 'Glee' really dipped into fantasy land last night. The storyline was bonkers:



    Kurt joined the football team. Any normal football team would TORTURE a guy as flamboyant as him -- but no! Kurt summons all the leg strength of a football pro and boots 'er into the sunrise. All while accompanied by the sound of his stereo blaring 'Single Ladies' by Beyoncé.



    Quinn is pregnant! And Finn isn't the father -- it's actually Puck's child. But Finn believes that prematurely ejaculating in a hot tub could impregnate his girlfriend. He ACTUALLY believes this. He must create super sperm!



    Expectant father Finn needs a football scholarship. The best way to do this? Have Kurt teach the team the 'Single Ladies' dance. And they all do it, after minimal grumbling. They even perform in front of the entire school, and win their match.



    Last night's episode was so ridiculous and unrealistic! 'Glee' has one foot firmly set in reality, and just tears its own storylines to pieces by making the deliverance ridiculous.



    I believe in creative license, but I REALLY hope the show stops being so unbelievable. And they overplayed 'Single Ladies' too. I think it was in five different scenes!



    To be honest, it would have been extremely funny to watch a football team do the 'Single Ladies' dance -- if it had been a dream sequence or something. Making it real really watered down the actual content of the storyline.



    Sorry, 'Glee'! I hope I enjoy next week's episode a lot more.moreless

    Kurt joins the football team just to impress his father. Finn and Quinn's relationship get a shocking development. Rachel thinks her star is fading when Tina is given a better part during rehearsals which causes her to leave. Sue continues her schemes to dismantle the glee club. I loved this episode, the whole storyline was awesome in my opinion! I love Kurt, I love the scenes all to do with the football game and try outs. I love the way Finn believe in him. I also love the storyline between Finn and his girlfriend her being pregnant, who she says she is the farther but it is his best friend - awesome storyline. And then Will's spouse Terri goes to she Finn's girlfriend due to the fact that she needs a baby sometime soon. I'm really looking forward to the next episode, all the storylines are getting even better, I love it. I also love Rachel's storyline, I find it very interesting! Bring on tonights episode.moreless
  • Things get hot again !

    Theres so much happening in this episode. Some of it might be dumb and cheesy like Finn actually believing Quinn got pregnant from the bath tub but there was so much going on that none of the very limited flaws were noticed. The dialogue was hilarious, principal Figgin's video...OMG ! Everything from the shocking Quinn being pregnant with Puck's baby to Rachel leaving the Glee club for a play that's part of Sue's plan to destroy the club, to Kurt's " I'm gay daddy don't be mad " issues set to Beyonce's music, were explosively funny and entertaining. I loved this episode !!moreless
