I'm pretty sure I'm still breathing. But screw life when there's Glee!
Not really my favorite episode music-wise but what really can come after a Madonna-orgy of awesome but a bit of a lull? The musical treatment of April and Will's scenes together worked pretty well and rounded out April's story nicely.
Although I'm pretty sure come Season Two, she'll be found working behind a Quick Stop or something, having blown 2 million. >.> Still, gotta love the Cheno and her amazing voice.
I'm probably the only person who likes Rachel and still, I was bemused that she was effectively a background character in this episode as Kurt and Mercedes were front and center.
It was interesting to hear what Beautiful sounds like without all the runs and oversinging.
Quinn has a soul sometimes. <3
I loved seeing Mike Chang really getting into singing Beautiful in the background.
The storyline of Kurt and Finn's parents getting together is seriously pretty great and I fucking love that the Kurt and Burt scenes are so emotionally glorious. I am just. Flailing my hands. Over here.
Er, and Sue Sylvester is awesome even at her cruelest? But that's obvious. I thought the cute journalist was great and it is bugging me that I can't remember where I've seen him before.
Final comment: I need more Jesse St. James. UGH. His evil plot may be evil but damn if I am not already a total Groff fan.
