Though when you add this to Blaine preferring to be on a porn website and Kurt preferring to sleep with a pillow (a pillow he got since Blaine made him feel so lonely he couldn't sleep) well... it doesn't look good.

I am pleased and sad that Kurt still has to use Bruce.  :( 

He could have any guy, as he must know that now, but he is still with Blaine.

Guys want him, and by that girl stroking down his chest, girls do to, even though he is gay.

Klaine are now not having sex.

Break them up already.  :angry:

Since Blaine has been there before, did he ever take Kurt?

What I would love as by the gay bar scene Kurt is the star, the one everyone seems to want to be near and touch, that DJ thinks it is Kurt (though he doesn't know his name) is the one ringing him.

I should be watching this before commenting.  blushh

Blaine is cheating again and Kurt is in the room. How disgusting is that.  :angry:

Well, my insomnia kicked in (I'm going to be a whole lot of fun at work today) and I ended up watching chucks of the episode (with judicious fast forwarding and use of the mute button at times). I posted my review on Tumblr and it's a bit too long to post here so I'm attaching the link.

Blaine seems really familiar with this gay bar.

Could this be were he was when said he was at the Statue Of Liberty in New New York?

This was just incredibly dull, not even bad just boring.

Nothing new or even remotely exiting. For a minute at the beginning I was exited to see Rachel and Kurt at the loft together, just having tea and talking because that is something I'd watch for 40 minutes.

And yes, the cynical nature in me really says that the exploring of the city Blaine has done has certainly led him to this gay bar before. I've loved Pumping Blood since last summer and have to admit it looked good.

I was wondering if that might be the case as well. Anyone who gets to do that is way luckier than any of us.

For those who know better: how does the selection process go with extras and dancers, ie. who gets to be "close" to the actors and who does not? I assume it's the professional dancers who are actually hired to do that, that are the ones closest to the actors in these scenes? To avoid the "accidental groping"? I mean it would be easier for the actors to know who's meant to touch them, assuming all these touches are carefully choreographed?

The gifs are a delight. Lots of men - all different flavors - looking at Kurt like he's an ice cream cone on a hot summer's day.



This was the best part of the episode, even if we had to endure another freaking Rachel solo.

It sure is. Karofsky never had much to do with bullying Rachel at all. Rachel's bullies from the start were Quinn, Brittany and Santana, and even Puck.

Bruce!  Kurt is still sleeping with Bruce!  Because he doesn't get any action from the Grease stain!  Bruce!  Kurlow forever!
Lol, I immediately thought of you when I saw that.  Razz



AnneNeville wrote:Is it actually opening night? Because the top critics don't come to opening night. They come to the previews beforehand so they can have their review all written.
Yes, this was really jarring. In order to create some cheap drama they just ignored yet another real life fact of musical theatre.
It wasn't the first, nor the last thing they got wrong with the 'Funny Girl' storyline, but you'd think that they wouldn't make it such an important part of an episode if it's so simple to debunk as not true.  Rolling Eyes

Like Chris was trotted out to promote an episode he wasn't even in and a multiple story arc he had no part in, let alone a song. (Grease)  dryy

To be honest I think y'all reading way too much into this. Blaine took the number from Tina because she mistakenly thought he was straight, and then he went into the bathroom, that's all.

If any of Blaine's behavior this ep is significant at all it's the fact that he knew the gay bar and Kurt didn't (after being in NY a year longer) but I'm quite sure that was just bad wording/writing (as usual).
And the way Kurt let loose during 'Pumping Blood' suggests that he is no stranger to gay bar fun either (though I wish we would have seen that one in a while).  Smile 

ColferInspired wrote:Here is another time that girl touched Kurt.

Lol, and he reached all the way to get to Kurt, leaving Blaine untouched.  moque

Kurt is no baby penguin anymore.  tonguue He sure feels comfortable with all the attention.
He also learned some sexy moves along the way.  aa54

Really, all they had to do was make this a genuine group number and so many people wouldn't be so bored by the Rachel overload.

Post  Glorfindel on 4/23/2014, 8:35 am

My TWoP post:

It's sad that what should have been one of the biggest, if not the biggest moment of Glee turned out to be such a snoozefest. For Glee fans who are not mainly Rachel fans there was very little to get out of this episode (really: just one nice group number at the gay bar would have gone a long way), so it got nothing more than a "meh" from me.
The scenes I liked the most were Santana being startled by the dove and the WTF faces of everyone when Sue commanded Kurt's bedroom for her own and was relieved to not find any sex toys there. Oh, and I enjoyed the NYC performance: why they wasted the multiple talents of Matt Morrison so much is a mystery to me, and Jane Lynch's voice really improved due to her stint on Broadway.
 
The biggest problem with this episode was imo that there was no real tension, no struggle that leads to the satisfaction of a happy ending. The fear for the bad NY Times review, complete with the producer predicting doom and everyone biting their fingernails out of fretting: it was fake, cheap last-minute drama when they neglected to built up any real expected struggles and challenges in previous episodes.
There was also too much of Rachel needing to be propped up by her friends again (and her being mean to them as a thank you) without her showing strength and willpower of her own, so there was basically nothing really for me to root for as Rachel has been horrible to her friends lately and never had to really fight to get to her big Broadway opening night in the first place.  Sleep 
 
Not even mentioning her dads felt weird. I know why they weren't there (Glee really worked itself into a corner there with their love for big guest stars) but it undermined the big moment for Rachel, who talked about her dads and how much their precious daughter wanting to become a star means to them several times, starting as far back as in the Pilot. Mr. Shue therefore not only had to fill in for Finn but for her dads as well.
Mentioning Finn was well done imo, with the panic in her nightmare of not wearing the necklace (although Rachel didn't wear it while singing 'Who Are You Now'), but I must admit that seeing him pop up right in the middle of a Rachel/Sue duet came as a little shock to me and it took me out of the performance. I guess with Sue being in the song too, making it partly about her storyline, I didn't think of Finn at that particular moment (as I probably was supposed to), even when Rachel said she always thought of him while singing that song.
As often with Glee: I know what they are trying to show me, but because the execution falls short (e.g. bad pacing, editing, or trying to cram too much into 1 scene) it just didn't work.
 
Something else that bothered me was that what we saw of 'Funny Girl' was only the Rachel Berry one woman show and not a musical production at all. I know Fanny Brice is the main character, but there are other characters and chorus members involved in a musical production (where was Ioan Gruffudd?), so showing only the last remaining Fanny solos on stage felt to me like a cop-out, like Glee lacked showing me why Rachel Berry is the center and star of the show. mince 
I wanted Rachel to stand out as Fanny when the stage was crowded with people. I wanted to experience everyone's attention being automatically drawn to the charismatic lead actress, so it would be justified that the review of an entire musical production was basically all about miss Rachel Berry.

On top of that: Rachel standing up the entire cast and crew at the production's party while the producer even was so kind to invite all her friends to a free dinner was of such poor manners. Carmen was right to question if Rachel wanted to be a part of the theatre community or only wanted the glory.
 
What I found really annoying too and slightly creepy tbh was that Rachel was wearing a Barbra Streisand wig while being Fanny. Not even a Barbra-as-Fanny wig, but the real Barbra hairdo from way back when she did Fanny.
If this is Ryan's idea of his upcoming revival of 'Funny Girl': a badly disguised tribute to Barbra Streisand, with Lea being willing to perform as Barbra's clone instead of giving a fresh interpretation of Fanny..... I wonder what the real NY Times critic would think about that.  Rolling Eyes
