    Music was there and it was an ok episode but Do you wanna touch me dragged on for ever, i would of rather seen Afternoon Delight have a bit more viewing time. The Santana storyline is great i hope they expand. Kurt was retarded and embarrassing to watch, if thats what they were going for they succeeded, I can't wait for regionals. I hear that there will be several songs performed. I hope they find one that they all sing a little bit of because its tiring to watch Finn and Rachel sing the leads at ther performances, except sectional no.2moreless
  • Gwyneth Paltrow's back and helping them tackle the difficult topic of sex! This is the sort of episode that Glee fans love: great singing, good songs, and a bit of a message in there too.moreless

    Who knew that Gwyneth Paltrow could sing that well? She's fun, and clearly was enjoying herself; hope she'll become an occasional character who drops in once in a while. Some great songs, although the Santana weepiness bit was nice to see her have emotion although a bit... unlikely. Again, kudos to Fox and Glee for tackling such a difficult subject as sex, and doing it with style. I like how they hinted that it's important to know how to protect yourself because some day, it'll matter. Kurt's dad's talk was brilliant (too bad not all fathers handle it that well), and covered the emotional side of the equation. For those who side with Emma and not teaching it: the evidence is quite clear that celibacy classes don't work, because at some point, nearly everyone has sex (90% have lost their virginity by the time they finish high school). Quinn's pregnancy last season showed how just once, without protection, what can happen. Not to mention the soaring adolescent pregnancy rate in the US, while in other countries (with sexuality education programs) have the same sex-drenched entertainment yet low teen pregnancy rates. You take drivers ed to avoid car crashes...moreless
  • Who knew?

    Well in this episode well it brings up another everyday in real life problem you know teenage sex and preangcent and Gwyneth Paltrow returns as the substile teacher as Holly Holliday and some love goes arond her and Will and meanwhile Burt gives the talk to Kurt and sometime Later Blaine and Kurt and some other peole sing animal and it was kinda of good and the most memeorable scene was the emotional scene between Santana and Brittney and it was damn good and Santana loves Brittney but she doesn't want to go threw what Kurt went threw and who what's gonna what nextmoreless
  • Just ok for me tonight, it definitely had it's highs points and its low points as well.

    I really do not know what they are doing with the relationships on this show. I guess I am the only person who actually likes Artie and Brittany together although Naya gave one hell of a performance. Also I hate the idea of Finn and Quinn together again, he broke up with Rachel for kissing someone else yet he goes back to Quinn who had a baby with someone else? It doesn't make a lot of sense. Also I do not like Will and Emma together so I welcome Holly's return. Gwen did awesome and I'm glad she is coming back for a few more episodes. I do have to say that I thought the scene with Brittany thinking she is pregnant was hysterical! She plays that character so well.

    Can't wait for next week's episodes, I'm interested to hear the original songs!moreless
  • The anti after school special ... again. But at least Paltrow is back.

    It seems like the Glee writers forgot about the show's storyline again this week. Remember that plot about an underdog Show Choir Team that is trying to win a competition while being sabatoged from within? Remember when the Glee club was about escaping the duldrums of your life through song. And that in spite how uplifting that could be, the chances of it lasting (becoming a success in the music biz) were slim. Meaning the Finns/Rachels of today were likely to become the Wills of the future. Well, Season 2 of Glee forgot about that too. It also forgot about every character an its own internal logic in the service of giving a a halfway decent episode threaded together by cartoonish discussions about sex.

    The fun was frequently mixed with the absurd. I liked scene where the rumor about Brittany getting Pregnant spread across the Glee club in about 30 seconds. But when the club forced the issue on her and she told them that storks brought babies it when beyond the normal "Brittany is kinda dumb" gag this show loves to mine and can became completely unbelivable. Brittany is so stupid I can't believe she exists nevermind Artie seriously dating her ... sex I can understand ... but I'm supposed to believe this kids have real, albeit teenage feelings for each other.

    It only gets worse when Santana later breaks down and admits she has real feeling for Brittany,(her performace wasted on a scene that fundementally fails) the arc of this relationship could have worked, but having Santana bare her soul like that is silly when you've got a cartoon character on the otherside.

    Most of the episode simply delt with cliches of the teenage characters knowing far less about sex than teenagers should know. And the adult characters being morons about it. (Except Kurt/Burt/Blaine ... but they are in a unique situation)

    Don't even get me started on the Puck / fat chick garbage. Or that 30 year old MARRIED virgin guidance counselor.

    For heavens sake Glee. I'm not asking for gritty realism here. But if you want to tackle serious issues. You can take them a bit more seriously.moreless

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Kurt: (explaining why he's underinformed about sex) I've tried watching those movies, but they just depress me. I start thinking about how they were all children once and they all have mothers and oh God what would their mothers think!

    • Emma: This meeting of the celibacy club will come to order. First, a word of congratulations: no one in this club has experienced an unplanned pregnancy in almost a year.

    • Kurt: So, you're saying I shouldn't have sex.
      Burt: I think on your thirtieth birthday, it is a great gift to yourself. Kurt, when you're ready, I want you to be able to... do everything. But when you're ready I want you to, use it as a way to connect to another person. Don't throw yourself around, like you don't matter. 'Cause you matter, Kurt.
      Kurt: Is that it?
      Burt : That's it, for now. Can I make you some toast?
      Kurt: I think I'll take it up to my room to eat while I look over my new pamphlets, thank you dad.
      Burt: You're, welcome.

    • Holly: (talking to Glee club) So, just remember; whenever you have sex with someone, you're having sex with everyone they've ever had sex with, and everybody's got a random.

    • Puck: Once on a dare, I swallowed a thumbtack. And I'm about 90% sure it's still there.

    • Santana: I wanted to thank you for performing that song with me in Glee club.
      Brittany: Yeah.
      Santana: 'Cause it's made me do a lot of thinking. What I've realized is why I'm such a bitch all the time. I'm bitch because I'm angry. I'm angry because I have all of these feelings, feelings for you, that I'm afraid of dealing with, because I'm afraid of dealing with the consequences. And Brittany, I can't go to an Indigo Girls concert, I just can't.
      Brittany: I can understand that.
      Santana: Do you understand what I'm trying to say here?
      Brittany: No not really.
      Santana: I want to be with you. But I'm afraid of all the talks, and the looks. I mean you know what happened to Kurt at this school.
      Brittany: But, Honey, if anybody where to every make fun of you , you would either kick their ass or slash them with your vicious, vicious words.
      Santana: Yeah, I know. But I'm so afraid of what everyone will say behind my back. Still, I have to accept...that I love you. I love you and I don't want to be with Sam or Finn or any of those other guys. I just want you. Please say you love me back. Please.

    • Santana: (to Brittany) Look, let us be clear here, I am not interested in any labels... unless it's on something I shoplifted.

    • Brittany (to Santana): I think I have a bun in the oven. Please don't tell anyone okay, especially Artie?
      Santana: Sure, your secret is safe with.. (to Tina who just walked in) Oh my God, Brittany is pregnant!
      Tina (to Puck who came in from the other direction) : Oh My God, Brittany is pregnant!
      Puck snide smile: It's only a matter of time.
      Lauren (standing next to puck): For what?
      Puck : Brittany to get pregnant.
      Lauren : Oh. (to Artie who just rolled in) Congratulations!
      Artie : For what?
      Lauren : Oh you didn't hear? Your girlfriend is preggo, you gonna be a baby daddy!
      Artie : stunned look

    • Brittany: I want to talk to you about something. I really like when we make out and stuff.
      Santana: Which isn't cheating, because...?
      Brittany: The plumbing's different.

    • Sam: (to Artie) Pretty cool that our girlfriends are such good friends, right? I wish you and I were that close.

    • Brittany: This relationship is really confusing for me.
      Santana: Breakfast is confusing for you.
      Brittany: Sometimes it's sweet and sometimes it's salty. Like, what if I have eggs for dinner? What is it?

    • Brittany:The key is to use the curling iron in the bathtub to keep yourself from getting burnt.

    • Holly: Sex. It's just like hugging – only wetter.
