I don't think I've ever +1'd a post before, but I definitely have to +1 this.

The problem seems to be, among other things, that they build the show around the songs instead of planning out a solid plot and then finding songs to fit the story that they're telling. And since it's become such a phenomenon, they hardly have to worry about silly things like "making sense," so it's only gone downhill from the first half of season one.

I look at every episode as a self-contained mini-musical and from that perspective it's a really good show! I don't know, I have no problems with it, I just love it more and more every week.

Kurt has found paradise. A whole school full of boys who sing and care about their jackets.

So, I just watched AVPM and AVPS to see what all this Darren Criss hubbub was about, and I have two things to say: 1) Darren Criss is hot and 2) I was totally in a forensics multiple with Nick (scarfy, sorty, Mama Umbridge, and Mr. Weasley) in high school! So basically, I'm famous.

Haha, it's not that kind of forensics. It's sort of like a combination of speech, debate, and drama. Multiple is basically a 15 minute cutting from a play or movie that we perform at weekly competitions with no costumes or props (only stools). We did the Lion King that year. Nick was Simba.

ETA: But science dirty IS my favorite kind of dirty.

Four minutes in and I'm annoyed by everything and everyone, but LOVING KURT. God I hope this is a good episode about bullying!

Ugh, yes! "Is there anything I can do?" Oh I don't know, Mr. Shu, how about growing a pair and telling "The Fury" to knock it the fork off?!

He is a horrible teacher. Horrible.

I hope it's about bullying, too. Kurt shouldn't have to take shiitake from anyone. Also, Sam's fantasy is amazing. Well, except for the part that was gross.

Yeah, I'm wondering if there are any actual teachers in this school.

I love when Puck gets to sing. His songs are always so much less offensively auto-tuned.

It's been like 30 seconds and I seriously want Kurt to transfer. He's too awesome for McKinley High.

I want to go to an all-boys prep school.

Wow, I am such a dirty old lady.

I WANT TO GO THERE TOO!!!


Omg they are soo much more enjoyable than whatever our real Glee people are called. LOVE THEM!!!!

And I'm guessing this guy is Darren Criss? I am freaking out how much he looks like a young Roger Federer (who is my biggest obsession) ahhhhhh feeling it.

I love that Tina is the one who needed to "cool off."

Really, can we just switch focus to the all-boys school? I want to watch the "Kurt Has a Cute Boyfriend and is Super Happy" show.
