Glee - Prom Queen, a belated review

We don’t do weekly reviews of every show. Just when we feel like it. But we’ve never missed a Glee before last week. People were not pleased. Now we know which show is the most important to cover on this blog, haha.

So, for the first time ever, we will do a make-up post, even though it’s really late.

Let’s see…it’s been a while. Oh! We remember Kurt won prom queen (and Karofsky won king). We knew because of the spoiling extra, obviously. Kurt won as a joke though, and he stormed out and cried to Blaine. Then he went back in to make a statement, with the perfect line, “Kate Middleton, eat your heart out.” He should have done that in the first place! Sucked it up, done that, danced with Blaine (SO nice how he stepped up when Karofsky fled), and then gone out and cried. But we guess it’s more realistic that he didn’t handle it perfectly.

The Glee Club played at prom, and there were so many songs released to iTunes. Sadly, we didn’t like too many of them enough to download them. The choices were odd. What’s with this "Jar of Hearts" business? A boring, depressing, self-indulgent song that they played once on So You Think You Can Dance has been slowly taking over the world for a year now. They give us a Rachel solo and it was THAT one? Who wants that played at their prom?

Much more typical was “Dancing Queen,” which was nice, but we’ve heard that song and its covers too much. Unnecessary and uncreative. There was also Rebecca Black’s "Friday". One of us loves that song and one of us is ready for it to go away. We guess doing a Glee cover was fun, and making it all-guy was a good idea. Blaine sang, “I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You.” We don’t like that song. Glee was working with little to begin with, so it was no surprise that the song didn’t make us want to…dance. Sorry. Couldn’t help that, haha.

Artie sang “Isn’t She Lovely” to Brittany in class, which was sweet, in theory. But after he called her stupid and after Artie has BEEN stupid for-frickin-ever, we were glad she turned him down for prom. Plus, that song IS about a baby. Ugh. Listen to lyrics, people. Rachel and Jesse sang a stripped-down version of ADELE’s "Rolling in the Deep". At first, we didn’t like it. We like ADELE’s big version. But then the song sat on our iPods for a week, and now we like the Glee version. Glee needs to get off of ADELE though and go back to some classic rock or lesser-known stuff.

Loved Rachel and Mercedes asking Sam to the prom together. We got to hear that Blaine had been beaten up at prom at his last school for going with a guy. Ok, we wish we went to that old school so we could beat the crap out of whoever did that. Seriously, Blaine is our favorite gay fella and we will cut a bitch who hurts him. So wrong. In fact, we will extend that ire to people who beat up gay people everywhere. Just let us know, and we will become vigilantes. Well, we will at least call the cops and recommend a lawyer to sue the guys for battery. We liked Kurt’s outfit. His dad and Blaine were spoilsports on that one. It was gay Braveheart and it was awesome.

Oh, also, we forgive Karofsky. His genuine, tear-filled apology to Kurt got to us. We can’t wait for him to come out of the closet, love himself, and do a Lady Gaga number with the rest of the gang. Jesse and Finn got into a fight over Rachel and were kicked out of prom. Quinn slapped Rachel and Rachel simply appreciated the drama of it. Didn’t Quinn look great by the way? That was nice of Rachel to just let it go, but wouldn’t it have been MORE drama for her to run more drama? And after they made it look like there were going to be consequences in the promo…poo.

Decent prom episode though. With more good songs, it would have been great.

Episode Grade: B
