    That was another down episode.

    I did like that they wrote a episode around a classic rock album, but the story last night was bad.

    Santana & Brittney - I get it. Santana wants Brittney to love her. Guess what, just because you are in love with someone, doesn't mean they have to love you back! Get over it Santana! (Are Artie & Brittney now official broken up?)

    Racheal/Finn/Quinn - So tired of this love triangle. Can Racheal please get a boyfriend and stop trying to steal Finn from Quinn?

    April Rhodes - What was the point of her character tonight, just to add tension? What a waste of Kristin Chenoworth! (However, Kristin looked awful tonight. What happened to her face, too much plastic surgery maybe?)

    I hope the trend that as episodes approach competitions (Nationals in a few weeks), the episodes get better.

    Preview spoiler
    Next week is Prom. Wonder if the will change the King/Queen after the original King/Queen was revealed? And, Quinn slapping Racheal! Can we all join in?

    Man, we couldn't disagree more on Quinn--I can't stand her. I think that maybe she should have kept the boyfriend that she had rather than steal Rachel's.

    If I were writing for this show, the scene that I want to see is Rachel saying to Finn, "I don't get it. We had a fight, and I kissed Puck. I told you about it and you broke up with me. Fine. But Quinn *had sex* with Puck while you were together, got pregnant and lied to you about it for months. She never came clean. You found out because I told you. And *her* you forgive?"

    I do agree that the episode was rather 'meh', though. :)

    Meh? MEH?!?!!? It was a waste. There was really no cohesive story.

    They are writing sue more and more like a caricature of a caricature of a caricature.

    Was there any resolution in this episode? Quinn's character became likeable at the end of season 1 and the whole club coming together. Now she is just there to give dirty looks and pout.

    Why do people like her in the club and hate Rachel? Why would they like either one?

    They can't seem to keep a character consistant from one episode to the next.

    I don't even feel like the songs are as fresh as they were.

    I'll ride it through but it's getting rough! :)

    I enjoyed it. I tend to avoid older music and was happy to remember that I like this album. I think if you're watching the show for cohesive plot you're always going to be disappointed, it's a series of setups, one liners and songs.

    I enjoyed the songs. I am glad they used an album I am familiar with. I don't get the Sue thing anymore.

    Quinn/Rachael/Finn - I got the feeling that Rachael was singing a goodbye/I'm finally over you song to Quinn last night. Maybe I am wrong.

    The whole bit with Sam was interesting, but it seems instead of Rumors up on the board Will could have written "Communication". If they had talked things out it wouldn't have been so crazy.

    Best scene was the cat eating out of the fondue pot!!

    Its disappointing because it used to be a little bit better than that.

    I always get the feeling that he is one step away from getting back together with her.

    He is. And that's just the way the producers like it.

    I don't have any spoilers or anything, but I predict a reunion before the end of the year.

    Did Artie and Brittany break up?

    I don't see how Sam is chummy enough with Kurt to let him in on the shameful secret of living in the motel. Didn't Kurt leave not long after Sam joined the Glee club.

    Kind of a meh episode. Not much happened. Then they threw in the stuff about Trouty Mouth (forget the character's name) at the end, so everyone could sing and be happy.

    That being said, Rumours is my absolute favorite album, and it was nice to know all the music!

    Not "officially," but I think they will by the end of the season (didn't Artie and Tina break up at the end of Season 1?); I think the producers and/or writers want to push "Brittana" (they have to justify that TV-14 rating and distance it from High School Musical somehow, I suppose).

    My guess is...
    No, they won't - in fact, I still think that the whole "get mad at some extra for spoiling it and have the cast come in to shoot an alternative ending" incident is just the producers working the fans. I wouldn't be surprised if the "surprising" ending they mentioned in the previews isn't the slap but the announcement of who the King and Queen are.

    Possible spoiler for the 5/17 episode:
    The only reason I don't include "the real shocking ending is Karofsky shooting himself, and the next episode deals with his funeral" is, somebody "in the know" says that the person who dies is a female (the two names being thrown around are Sue's sister and Sue's "assistant" Becky)

    This show has really been going down hill this year. Like others have said Sue should be written out of the show. Other years she was funny in the ways she did things to the glee club. This year she is just mean and spitefull and a waste of writing.

    The April Rhodes thing was also a waste of time. It added nothing to the story. I don't know what is going on with the writers but they better get their act together and start writing good stories again or they will lose a lot of followers, like me.

    Loved the music. I for one do not watch the show for plot/storyline. I pretty much FF everytime Will ( singing or talking) is on the screen.

    Remember when there used to be a dedicated channel for watching music videos, now primetime TV has a show with many music video numbers in it. Half the viewers watch because they like stories, the other half just likes the music and dancing.

    I don't think any of the singing/dancing talent alone would make me interested in watching this TV show. I can get real music videos here.

    Fondue for Two Come on. That's some good stuff. And Trouty Mouth's line to Rachael "They warned me you would try to steal all my gold".

    Damn. I LOLed..

    They were sort of quick with the explanation, but Kurt found out when Sam delivered pizzas to Dalton. Although they aren't chummy per se, my guess is that they have a brotherly bond of sorts after Sam defended Kurt against Karofsky in the wedding episode.
