For one minute of his life, I had Chris Colfer's attention. It was a great minute.

Well, since I'm buried in two feet of snow and am stuck in the house like just about everyone else in the Boston area, I'd figured I'd rewatch some of the old episodes.

It's nice to see Emma encourage Will to use other kids in the group.

Santana telling Rachel that she "got it on" with Finn in front of the of the entire class really was really one of the most bitchy and nasty things she has done.

I love how proud Kurt looks in his uniform. I wonder how much they saved on the clothes budget when they sent Kurt off to Dalton.

Emma telling Finn not to answer Rachel she asks if Santana prettier than her always makes me giggle. Finn is just dumb enough that he would answer (and then he says she's super hot later).

Artie is really sweet. He was so supportive and encouraging for Brittany. And he did it in a way that was appropriate for Brittany (talking to her the way you'd talk to a five year old).

I love the smile and hope on Kurt's face when he is offered the chance for solo at sectionals.

Rachel is a drama queen, but she didn't deserve the public fogging she got from Mr. Schue. That is wildly inappropriate for a teacher to do.

Tina's cheerleader outfit is one of the worst outfits I've ever seen on Glee.

I love the little Kurt going to Rachel for help seen. I have to say that watching this scene so close to all of the great Hummelberry stuff this weekend really shows how much better as actors in the past year and a half. They were really really great in this scene in special ed that I wouldn't have thought they could be better. You know, if they had done a spinoff, and gotten some decent writers for it, I'd think we'd be seeing both Chris and Lea getting Emmy nominations this year.

As for "Don't Cry For Me Argentina," I really love how everyonis looking how the Warblers are all lookin at Kurt in awe as he sings. I do hate the wayBlaine told him not to put his hands down. I always thought Blaine stiffles Kurt's indviduality, and this is part of that.

I love he way Kurt moved to the other end of the bench so quickly when he find out he doesn't get the solo.

I hate that Blaine told Kurt he needed to learn to fit in. I think that the worst part of Kurt going to Dalton is that the took away his individuality. The put him in a uniform, and took away his snark, and just made him one of the Warblers. He just wasn't himself, he was a conformist, an Kurt Hummel would never be a conformist.

You're right, Kurt, the Warblers did take away your indiviuality. I wish you never went there.

I like this litte Hummlberry scene too. It was nice to hear Rachel be supportive of Kurt, and it was also a moment of growth for Rachel because she realized that she was being selfish. You really can see the Hummelberry as friends here.

So the Warblers are a stool choir Mr. Schue? They look like they are moving to me. I don't remember noticing Darren's derpy faces too much when the episode first aired, but they were definitely there, and they definitely got worse.

You know, Glee really did love recycling early on. Sectionals coming between Emma an her lover? Check. People not singing or threatening not sing in competitiions because of lover squabbles? Check. Duets with a grand entrance from the back of the theatre? Check.

I liked "I've Had the Time of My Life." Sam and Quinn are a good match for duets.

Heather's dancing is so spastic in Valerie.

Kurt winking at Mercedes. Adorable!

I like that Rachel came clean to Finn about cheating with Puck on him, but Rachel should have been the one to pull away. Also, Finn saying that he was sensitive to cheating after what happened with Quinn was silly. He kissed Rachel when he was dating Quinn (and later he kisses Quinn when she is dating Sam). So Finn being so vocal about fidelity is just dumb.

The Dog Day Are Over is one of those fun group numbers that they stopped doing in season three. But they are starting to bring back now.

Santana has always been bitchy and nasty when it comes to Rachel. I wouldn't be suprised if she wants to sleep with Brody (despite the "lesbian" thing) just to mess things up for her new roomie and friend.
