Glee- Big Brother review

Comments- Finally, Glee is back. We missed this show more than it deserves, because it’s often kind of a crappy show. Still, we are on the Glee train until it crashes. Thank God Rachel and Finn didn’t marry. The burning question of whether they went through with it was answered in the first line of the episode. What relief! Now we can breathe again.

We liked Quinn’s positive outlook and gratefulness at being alive, but we didn’t trust it. There’s no way Quinn could end up in a wheelchair with no drama. Sure enough, she's in denial about how long it's going to take to heal. I’m Still Standing was cute, but the lyrics were so on-the-nose and unintentionally hilarious. This is the way Glee always handles stories about the handicapped.  To hammer the PSA home, Glee had Quinn say, “Don’t text and drive. Texting and driving was the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, besides sleeping with Puck.” Um, what about trying to steal Shelby’s baby?

We are glad that Quinn has a chance at a full recovery. Sue coaching the Glee club is a hilarious idea. Could Cooper BE any cuter? No, because it’s Matt Bomer from White Collar, one of the best-looking guys in history. It came as no shock to us when he came out of the closet. No guy that pretty is straight. He makes the usually adorable Blaine look homely by comparison.

Of course when Quinn doesn’t bring drama, Rachel provides it on Quinn’s behalf. Quinn shut it down nicely. Puck wants Finn to go into business with him for his BRAINS? Oh, Puck. Cooper is such a douche. Saying “Namaste” in a non-yoga setting was the clincher. Of course Matt Bomer would be able to sing too (at least we think/it’s tough to tell what these people actually sound like with all that autotune the show uses). One person should not be so gifted. It isn’t fair. Hopefully he’s stupid in real life, like Finn. We prefer Blaine’s voice though. Rio/Hungry Like a Wolf was a good mash-up in that the songs went well together.

Ern’s brother tries out new accents in public all the time, haha. We loved seeing baby Blaine and Cooper. Blaine was being too sensitive about his brother’s advice at dinner. Older siblings criticize and that’s that. He means well. When someone who means well criticizes you, you should take what’s helpful and ignore the rest without getting upset. We were really scared that Quinn was going to slide backwards off that ramp Artie made her climb. We disagree that it’s hard to go to a theme park in a wheelchair. Ern knows, because Ern did that once. No, Ern was neither injured nor handicapped. Ern was just a bad person when she was younger (and possibly now too.)

When you are in a wheelchair, they sometimes rush you to the front of lines and you get to remain seated the entire time. You don’t get tired. Someone in your family has to push you. Clearly, the writers of this show have never done this. Cooper’s acting lessons were so bad. We are starting to see why Blaine is annoyed. The man is an idiot and arrogant at the same time. During his acting lessons, we started to really loathe him and wish that he was off the show. “When a choice feels wrong, it’s actually a good sign.” Haha.

The thing about arrogant people is they don’t realize they are arrogant. It’s a blinding trait. They have no idea. They think they are the best people either. Blaine being mad at Cooper for being arrogant is like me being mad at Helen Keller for not being able to enjoy The Dark Knight. You just hope they one day seek therapy because they can’t form lasting relationships and let a professional break the news to them in a convincing way. Also, you realize that we are all a little arrogant and/or self-centered. Some people are just better at hiding it.

Blaine should never throw punches again. That’s not his forte. Fighter was ok. We like when the show has someone of one gender singing an original song by someone of the opposite gender. It’s hard to top Christina Aguilera though, and that’s one of her best songs (and creepiest music videos).

It’s about time we address Sue’s pregnancy, because that’s still happening. Oh show, why do you do these things to us? Leeard still refuses to believe this is a thing. She will not believe it until she sees the baby pop out of Sue, and she might not even believe it then. Apparently, the baby girl is going to have Down’s Syndrome. This is realistic, since Sue is old. But it’s not going to be funny. We fail to see how it will add anything to the show. We already have Becky.

Kurt’s solution to Blaine’s brother problem is that they sing it out. A) Stupid and B) Good, because it led to the best cover of the night. The song is just fantastic, so anyone singing it can make it nice. It was cool to apply the breakup song to the brothers’ relationship. Cooper, those Transformers movies suck anyway. The first one was ok. As for the final Rachel/Finn fight, we are past caring. But Team Rachel.

Episode grade: B


  1. I thought this was an ok episode, but it really should have been better after a 7 week break, but whatever. I wonder how much time passed between the 2 episodes? Because Quinn was 100% not realistic. I've been in a bad car accident before (coma,head injury,etc) & I know that it takes A LONG time to come back from that. There is no way on God's green earth she would have been that normal & with it after just a few weeks or even months. Anyway...I guess I should just remember that it's only TV =)

    1. It was supposed to be a little over a month, right?

  2. Yeah, I think a little over a month. There is no way she woulda been in that good of shape. A motnh after my car crash I still had black eyes. Not to mention you get really skinny b/c you are either on feeding tubes or just not eating much while you are in the hospital.

    1. Yikes. I guess you know from experience, unfortunately. Glad you're ok now.

  3. I don't really care about Glee anymore, so this is basically my "review" for the whole episode-


    Yeah, this is why I don't have a blog.

    Anyways, have you seen this? Cooper's audition-

    And this was hilarious-

    1. Very cute and funny links.

      Matt Bomer is almost too perfect. It's his only flaw.

  4. Wow, this post is pleasant, my sister is analyzing such things, thus I am going to let know her.

  5. I do want Quinn to walk again, if for no other reason than Artie won't feel like he has a club. Shut up, Artie.

    Once again I wasn't wild about their song choices, but I did buy Somebody That I Used To Know. I was upset with Fighter. I love when they switch things up and have guys sing female songs, but that is one of my favorite songs, and Christina sang it with her biggest umph. Blaine doesn't have that rawness that she did. Felt too fluffy.

    I was convinced that Sue was going to discover she wasn't pregnant but going through menopause (seemed more plausible even though she seems a bit young for it). Really? She's going to have a Downs baby? I'm just ignoring this one.

    1. Agree about "Fighter." I still have that in my iTunes. Everyone who loves that song has someone they dedicate it to. It's the best attitude to have in such a situation. :-) Blaine's was just whiny, not powerful. We don't believe Cooper made him a fighter.

      Sue is hurting the show at this point. She was only great in season one.
