Posts Tagged ‘Britney Spears’

Leave Brittany Alooooooooone. No, really. The overall internet world was pretty “omg Glee, stop selling out to big stars” about Britney/Brittany, but I found the random references, songs, and overall amazingness that is Brittany S. Pierce pretty great last night.

Favorite Moments of “Britney/Brittany”:

* UNCLE JESSE IS BACK EVERYBODY. I really hope that he gets to sing next week. I love that he makes Emma be more relaxed — mixing red grapes and green grapes in the same bowl! Letting her hair get windblown in his convertible! I will admit that his introduction to the Glee kids was beyond random — really, Will? That’s the best way you could think of to check out the competition? And if he was an actual dentist I would be concerned about those drugs he is handing out that makes you hallucinate Britney Spears. But still. Uncle Freaking Jesse!

* Favorite Song of the Episode: Tie between Baby One More Time and Stronger. Stronger actually advanced Artie’s plotline, and was a fun take on the song. But Baby One More Time was a nostalgia explosion, recreating my favorite music video in 4th grade basically shot for shot. So it kind of wins.

* Small Jokes that made me laugh a lot: Rachel’s post-dentist David-After-Dentist-esque comment; Sue’s snap that Will had more vests than the cast of Blossom; Emma’s crack about Will’s Toxic outfit reminding her of KIDS Incorporated; Santana’s reference to the Leave Britney Aloooone kid

* Speaking of Santana, I really love her more each week. She is SO mean, and it’s SO funny. “It’s a way better look than before, where you were dressing up as a very dark, specific Japanese businessman fetish” HA.

* I don’t really understand why Kurt was in so much trouble this episode for wanting to do Britney, or why he was SO adamant about it. Ok, he totally needed to go to the principal for freaking out on Mr. Shue (their teacher after all) but the rest of it? Confusing.

* Can I just stop and say, again, that I love and adore all that is crazy Teri? I seriously love her and the havoc she wreaks on the other people on this show. I’m glad she came back for a totally bitch-tastic confrontation with Will, and I hope she’s back for the rest of the season. Seriously. LOVE HER.

* While Rachel has turned up the annoying levels to 11 lately, I still actually liked the relationship twists they threw she and Finn in this episode. I was actually really worried when she pressured him about football that they were going to just break up, basically nullifying an entire season of build up to them dating in just under two episodes. Thank goodness they are letting them play out just a little bit longer, at least. Plus it meant that Rachel got a really belt-y romance song at the end, and she sure can close an episode.

* Ok, so. Brittany. I was worried that it would be too much, but she was awesome! Plus we got to see more of her very strong dance skills, which is a plus. And the quotes! Oh, how I wish I’d have written them down, but then, this whole post would be Brittany quips. My favs Brittany moments:

“This room looks like that one spaceship where I was probed.”

Demanding all the solos, because Britney made her realize how awesome she is.

“It’s like a puffy Jewish cloud” (re Jacob Ben Israel’s hair)

* The Britney Spears Sex Riot was a funny gag, but they made Jacob Ben Israel a little bit too much this episode. It was just…way too over the top to the point of creeping me out. Like actually creeping me out, not just “oh, that character is being totally creepy right now.” Legit creepy. *shudder*

* Actual Britney appearances were funny (especially her in the Cheerios uniform) but probably not necessary honestly. It was great that they could get her, but we didn’t need to see Madonna either for it to be a great episode. Her good breath comment in Brittany’s dream was hilarious though.

Well, that’s it! Next week, it looks like they’re bouncing back from funny, gimmicky celebrity episode to a Kurt/Kurt’s Dad episode guaranteed to make you cry buckets of tears. If Mike O’Malley is actually dead next week, I will be SO furious. That is all.

Ok, first off I need to say two words: Asian. Camp.

Secondly — Glee has officially premiered it’s second season! Yay! And while I’m sorta sad about the demise of Tina/Artie (but only sorta, because did you SEE Tina/Mike Chang?!) and the whole episode was overall a little on the meh side plot-wise, there were a lot of glimmers of good things to come for season two of our favorite Gleeks.

Favorite Moments of “Audition”:

* I love that Jacob Ben Israel called Mr. Shue out about the real-life common gripe that he should REALLY please-for-the-love-of-all-of-us stop rapping. Hilarious.

*Best song of the night: toughie. I think I’m going to go with Empire State of Mind, because I loved the dancing, as well as the song. Britney/Quinn/Santana dancing on the railing was part funny part awesome. Though, again with all the rapping. It’s a bit much. Mercedes killed it though, and I loved seeing everyone back in a big way, even if no one else in the courtyard seemed to think so. Our poor, still-super-lame Gleeks.

* Close-second best song of the night: Telephone. Again, I’m not a huge crazy GaGa crazy fan, but I really liked their version. Also, I wasn’t super caught up on who the new faces this season we’re going to be, and holy cow! the voice on little miss Sunshine. I was not expecting that, and I love seeing Rachel flip shit over a new powerhouse.

* In terms of Rachel losing it — sending Sunshine to a crack house?! (In LIMA?! Really?) was ridiculous and super-bitchy and great. I love that no matter how much Rachel may want to change her ways, or thinks that she is (What I Did For Love, anybody?) she just cannot help being a self-centered slightly crazy person. I also really like that Finn will call her on that crap, without also freaking out and breaking up with her. Real character development! Whoa!

* I think I’m going to love ALL of the new characters introduced. Though I’m a little sad no-lines-Shaft had to move away for them to show up.

The Beiste (it’s French! ha!)  is a really great foil for Sue — I thought she was going to be a rival does of pure evil, but she seems to have a more visible soft side to her (unless this is an act?) which I like. Though letting the football team have a pizza party right before you make them go run til they puke isn’t really that nice, but whatever.

Sam (Real name Chord Overstreet, no really.)– It totally makes sense that (for now) he’s avoiding the Glee club since he’s such a new kid and they ARE still losers (despite real-life fame). I feel bad for Finn that Sam has taken his place as Quarterback, now that Beiste threw him off the team somewhat unfairly. But I’m also pretty sure that “I haven’t had any balls in my mouth. Have you?” joke sets him up to be Kurt’s new boyfriend. At least I hope so.

Sunshine (Just Charice, like Cher and Madonna) — Like I said earlier, totally didn’t see her coming, and really love her. I like that she isn’t a total bitch either, and really thought she could be friends with Rachel before Rachel sent her to the crack house. I hope she finds her way back to New Directions soon. Not that I don’t love Vocal Adrenaline, but unless Jesse St. James is back, the rest of them are pretty non-existent humans in the character development arena, and kinda boring. That said, the brief scene with the new Vocal Adrenaline coach was hilarious.

* Side note — are we not calling Mike Chang  “Other Asian” anymore? Sad face.

* Why was the slushie Kurt got hit with that god-awful tomato soup looking fake red thing? If it’s going to be that bright looking can they go back to purple or blue or something? The red was a little extra gross.

* Another question: Why was Finn so bad at Cheerios auditions? He dances some in Glee, correct? And aren’t cheerleaders just dancers gone retarded (name that movie!)? It would’ve been weird seeing him as a Cheerio in a sad attempt to be cool, but he probably should’ve been better than that, and would’ve been a good base for stunts, like he said.

* Quinn regaining her rightful throne as Head Cheerleader. Thanks to her new ability to pander to the religious abstinence crowd for Cheerios funds and Santana’s new fake boobs. This also leads to an epic bitch fight in the hallways between Quinn and Santana, where Quinn is SERIOUSLY fierce again. Greatness.

* “We’re into the same things…like his abs” — Tina, to Artie, as one reason why she broke up with him for Mike Chang.

*”These seats are currently being occupied by my ghost friends” — Sue, of course.

* Best Brittany-isms: “People thought I went on vacation but actually, I spent the summer lost in the sewers.” Also, her clutching the mini-Brittany doll as she ran out of the Principal’s office.

So that’s that for the first episode of the fall, everyone! I’m a little wary on all these upcoming gimmick episodes, but the preview for next weeks Britney Spears ep, and the sheer amount of Brittany has me too excited to care. Bring on the Britney/Brittany!!
