Finally the musical is over and done with - one more number from WS
and I was out the door. But this episode was the best all season, with a
few minor exceptions.
Going into it I was skeptical of the writers and directors ability to handle
such a touch subject, though I'm sure they anticipated the abstinence
crowd when creating the episode. All in all it "the first time" was handled
with dignity and taste and focused more on the love quotient than the
Despite what I said above the interweaving of some of the WS songs with the plot was also welldone during both the Blane/Kurt/Sebastien scene and the
ending "first time" vignettes with Blane/Kurt and Finn/Rachel. Featuring
musical numbers by other cast members was also refreshing. As a side
note: I feel a little bad for Damien McGinty, the Glee Project winner -
he won a 7 or 9 epiosode run and if this one counts (he was on the
screen for a VERY short time) then he was ripped off.
Okay a few minor gripes: The scene with Mike Chang and his dad must
have something to do with an upcoming episode b/c it was just thrown
in out of the blue. Artie talking about sex with Bieste? Can you EVER
imagine talking to one of your HS teachers about THEIR virginity?
Speaking of Bieste, what about her "first time"? That would have been
fun to include. Where was Sue? Campaigning? Finally, I have mixed
thoughts about the whole Sebastien storyline. Aside from the "Kurt
doesn't need to know" aspect what's with the underage drinking? Hell
if people wanted to get up in arms about something that should have
been it. Again, minor.
So they've kept me for now. Let's see what next week brings.
