Okay, I'm not going to even touch on the Quinn/Finn parts of this episode - I'm trying to forget it ever happened. Nor am I going to talk about Will/Holly because regarding their relationship - IDGAF. And (surprise surprise) I won't be talking about Blaine/Kurt even though I found their whole "sexy" talk thing freaking hilarious.
No. I'm going to step away from all that for a bit and talk about my first OTP from Glee - Brittany/Santana. I began shipping them in the first season after this exchange:
Santana: sex isn't dating
Brittany: if it were, Santana and I would be dating
And so it began. I was so excited during the 'Duets' episode because I thought for sure that the two of them would get their shit together and be a couple. Of course, Glee never turns out how we expect/want it to. This episode, 'Sexy', however, blew my mind. Naya Rivera acted her butt off in this, and she had me in tears every time she started crying. I think there were hints of this coming in the 'Blame It on the Alcohol' episode, and I'm so glad they acted on it.
As a bisexual, Glee on occasion annoys the hell out of me. In addition to initially showing Santana and Brittany's relationship as a 'fun on the side' thing and not actually acknowleding any possible lesbianism between the two, they also have a main character (Kurt) take a dig at bisexuals without coming back to the topic or forcing him to admit that what he said was wrong. I like that Brittany in this episode is confused about her sexuality, and how Santana seems to get over her 'gay panic' issues to really be truthful about how she feels.
Landslide was one of the most beautiful Glee performances I've seen, and the third one ever to make me cry (first two were 'To Sir With Love' and 'I Want to Hold Your Hand'). Her confrontation with Brittany in front of the lockers was so brave and I was literally clapping and crying all at the same time while I was watching it. Santana has really grown as a character, and I feel like I can finally tick off one of the points on my glee wishlist - to see some growth and emotion with Santana that doesn't revolve around anger or arrogance.
Justin Bieber what? Seriously, what?
I felt sorry for Quinn during this but part of me felt that she kind of deserved it. She can be so manipulative. I love my bb, but seriously?
I wanted to hit Finn. Like seriously. I wanted to cause him pain. I cannot stand him right now. He's just... mean.
Sam was absolutely adorable during this episode, and him trying to "sexy" and an "artist" cracked me up.
Um. But other than that I wasn't really into this episode. So lets just move on.
Sometimes I feel like this episode was a bit preachy. But it was also full of deliciously awesome crack, so I kind of loved it.
Okay. Things I loved - Rachel. But to a point. I loved her being drunk because she was adorable but I hated the way she treated Kurt. Seriously. She was horrible. She knew how much Kurt liked Blaine, and I get that she was drunk, and she just went for it. Ugh.
Just the glee club in general cracked me up.
OH GOD MY BB Santana, crying all the time, I love her so much. She's adorable.
Um. What else. Lauren. I love Lauren. I love how Lauren and Quinn just attacked Puck. Angry drunks for the win!
Personally, I'm more like Tina and Mercedes, but I ALWAYS end up as Santana. I'm a "everything is funny oh god can't stop laughing oh god now I'm crying I hate my life."
I also didn't like Kurt's bi-phobia. As a bisexual, I just was really pissed off by his little tirade. And then the fact that it wasn't addressed again really bothered me. I was kind of hoping that Blaine would end up being bisexual just so they could explore it a bit more.
I seriously wanted to hit Finn during this damn episode
I love the Lauren + Puck thing, and I love that she doesn't take any shit from him
Though I wasn't impressed with Rachel's slut shaming of Santana, I'm glad that someone at least tried to give her a reality check
Quinn and Finn - what the hell are you doing?! So not impressed...
I am totally in love with the idea of a Mercedes+Kurt+Rachel friendship ♥
Blaine has FLAWS OH THANK CHEESUS
I felt so embarassed for him OMG HE GOT REJECTED POOR BB
Though I do love that Kurt + Blaine are taking things slow and working on their friendship
Loved the music this episode, especially PYT and Fat Bottomed Girls
I loved Rachel in this epsiode - especially when she realised that she needs to be her own woman for awhile
( my glee wishlist )
This one is the first part of a project I'm planning - I'm making fanmixes for a couple of characters from Glee (essentially just my favourites), and then I plan on doing ones for pairings - I ship everyone with everyone so there'll be heaps of these (if I can manage it!). As always, please leave a comment if you download, and do not post elsewhere. If anyone would like individual songs uploaded, or has trouble downloading the zip, just let me know.
also, tomorrow I get to go see harry potter. SO EXCITED.
( in which I get a bit carried away with my notes and the caps lock and the squeeing )
