Hmm, I must not have been paying much attention, and don't know what edits you are referring to here.The edits in "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" ( covering Springsteen covering Otis Redding) were painful.
I thought it looked remarkably like the Dick Van **** Show home. (Although considering that they mentioned the Judy Garland Christmas special, perhaps it was that one.)TheMerk said:The chalet set looked so familiar to me. Was it an homage to a classic television set?
I had to keep reminding myself that I don't do drugs... it was all so whacked out. Like 60 minutes of non-sequitors. The least of which was Rachel giving Finn a list (a boyfriend's dream, so he doesn't have to think about it and can just buy something she wants) and then he buys her an interest in a pig. Whaaaaa? A black and white holiday special with crappy jokes, an overzealous laugh track, and streamer girls. Whaaaaa? Ending with singing to people in an Ohio homeless shelter about poor people in Africa. Whaaaaa?Frankly, the whole episode sucked for me. Too much schmaltz, heavy handed, and poorly executed.
Matthew Morrison doesn't do much better(He directed this episode)Artie really REALLY sucks as a director. Except for the Chewbacca dream.
Yes, I meant in-show director. It was Morrison's first directing effort, according to IMDb. I understand that this was supposed to be a parody, but it wasn't a good one.Matthew Morrison doesn't do much better(He directed this episode)
Why are you guys (not just singling Tracy out here) attempting to apply logic to the Glee Universe?I have to say it. I know it is futile.
How did they build that set for under $800?
After the taping of the show they rushed to the homeless shelter--but Rachel took the time to take her lovely 60's hairstyle and turn it into a ponytail. And Brittany and Santana changed out of their costumes...and into their cheerleader outfits??
The local Ohio PBS station doesn't care that their Christmas special is so heavily gay-themed including some fairly raunchy material?
Finn sold his letterman jacket to get the money for Rachel's diamond earrings? Who buys someone's current letterman jacket?
Brittany's family is going to Santa Fe for the holidays and isn't taking their guest foreign-exchange student with them??
Oh, I know. And I wouldn't say I am disappointed. I don't like the show but I still watch it because it is entertaining...and to be driven crazy by the lack of logic. It almost seems like they do it on purpose. Why have the line about the show not being allowed to cost more than $800? Just leave that line out if you know you are going to build an elaborate multi-level set with a fireplace! They do it to make me lose my mind!Why are you guys (not just singling Tracy out here) attempting to apply logic to the Glee Universe?
I go into this show with very low expectations therefore, I'm rarely disappointed.
That said, I don't think it was a particularly good episode performance-wise.
It's not that I demand logic out of Glee (which no one will EVERRRRRR get), it's that I demand the absence of wild and stupid 'illogic'. As Tracy said, we've gotten used to them building elaborate sets for a podunk high school weekly assignment, but why have the $800 line if it's not going to play into the story at all?Why are you guys (not just singling Tracy out here) attempting to apply logic to the Glee Universe?
