2x1 "Audition" Watch and Discussion

Post  Jellyrolls on 1/6/2013, 10:41 pm

I'm having so much fun watching old Glee tonight that I'm going to continue on to Season 2 tonight. Here goes:

Description from the DVD:

After a tough loss at Regionals, the glee club is back as the underdogs of McKinley High. When the school is faced with even more budget cuts, Mr. Schuester pushes the kids to help recruit new members for the club. Meanwhile, Sue is threatened by the hiring of a new football coach. Introducing Chord Overstreet and Dot Marie Jones to the cast. International pop star Charice guest stars.

Jacob Ben Isreal is sure obsessed with the Glee Club. I wonder if he does video blogs about the other clubs at the school.

I love Kurt telling Jacob to go away, and then I love his little speech. He got a good little mouthful of slushie there didn't he. lol.

Why are there would be Cheerios in Cheerios uniforms waiting to sign up? Aren't they already Cheerios?

Figgy is a horrible principal. He can't manage money. He's inappropriate. He's so glee. haha.

I love Chris' hair in New York State of Mind. He's so adorable when he's pushing Artie.

Finn discovering Sam singing in the shower wasn't as creepy as Will discovering Finn singing in the shower.

I didn't like "Telephone." Rachel and Sunshine were so different in the song it just was strange. Rachel was all attitude, and Sunshine all smiles.

Wait, Sam was dyslexic? I forgot that throwaway line. And now, they have Ryder be dyslexic. Recycle.

"Billionaire" was a great performance. I do like Chord's voice. Kevin is really the only one who should be rapping in the cast.

I love the WTF look Kurt gives Rachel when she is telling him and Mercedes about Sunshine. No one can hold their own in a scene without speaking like Chris. He conveys more in a few looks than anyone else in the cast does with a page of dialogue.

Finn's audition for the Cheerios was hysterical. I would have given him a spot if I were Sue. haha.

Sue's conversation with Santana was wrong on so many levels.

I can't believe that voice comes out of Charice. The way Cory is moving his shoulders and head when they show him is so weird looking on him.

Dog poop cookies. Gross.

"What I Did for Love" is one of my favorite songs that Le has done on the show. It wasn't much of a performance visually, but she sounded fantastic on it. Love Kurt spinning Smile

Well, I'm almost done rewatching the episode, and had typed a bunch of stuff as I watched it, then my kitten Merlin jumped on the keyboard and made my post disappear. Like magic, little fuzzbutt.

To summarize-

Kurt amazing, dozens of expressions showing exactly what he is thinking.

The successful introduction of Sam, possible boyfriend for Kurt. I still think at that point they were looking at Kurt being a tutor for dyslexic Sam, and when the boyfriend went away, so did the dyslexia. Too bad, Kurt might have gotten to sing in that relationship.

The not so successful introduction of Sunshine, who sings amazingly, but doesn't act anywhere near so well. Still kind of feel that she or her team used Glee as a way to launch an American tour, because she just never seemed to be available. Or it could have been a kind way of making it seem like it wasn't her acting keeping her away.

Rachel's pitbull single mindedness about her solos. Using the "protection" of the others abilities to have solos, when she was just protecting her own. But that is Rachel. Rachel loves to perform more than anything, and if they are really true to her character she won't get back with Finn or anyone, because no one will ever equal the spotlight to Rachel. Lea, which she has become isn't quite so singleminded, so perhaps she'll loosen up. But she has kind of stopped being this obsessed Rachel.

I liked Beiste back at this time, because she knew what it was not to fulfill people's expectations of what a woman was, and be punished for it. When she joined the Kurt is too femme bandwagon that kind of disappeared, never to return. She should have been the one to push for it, rather than Emma, who pointed out Kurt's stick arms, (and obvious excellent hygiene) as a reason to be attracted.

Okay so I've been rewatching season 2.
-Rachel was literally unbearable this episode (and I actually like her)
-Artie wants to join the football team. This was a stupid plotline. Completely unrealistic even for glee. 
-Empire State of mind is a fun song. Kurt looks really hot with that hairstyle
-Charice is a great singer but she's an awful actor
-Sam was very blond back then. Wow. Shocked 
-Billionaire is a catchy song, but I have a soft spot for Bruno Mars. Chords voice suits the song really well. 
-Wow Will. How the fuck are you considered an adult? I expect that from Sue. 
-Oh Beiste. I was always sort of indifferent about her. 
-Rachel just called Kurt a lady. Should I be offended? 
-I miss Kurtcedes friendship. They were so fabulously bitchy together.
-Wow. Finn really can't dance. 
-I really don't like Santana. She's such a bitch. I was rooting for Quinn the entire time during their fight. 
-Charice overdoes it on the hand motions when she sings. Listen is a great song though. 
-I loved Rachel's hair this season. 
-What I did For Love is a great song but I'm getting sick of watching Rachel angst down the hallway and stare at Finn like a creep. 

2.5/5 overall. Disappointing for a season premiere, but not horrible.
