Hello everyone! I’m PollyAnna and I’m going to be recapping Glee for you this season. I apologize for missing the first week – I had a complete dumb-ass attack and thought that last week was the season premier, then I spent last week out of town for a funeral. The good news is that not a whole hell of a lot went on in the premier episode, so I’m going to summarize and get on to episode 2!
So in episode 1, Rachel moved to New York. Rachel started taking classes at NYADA. Rachel has a bitchy teacher (Kate Hudson). Rachel misses Finn. Rachel meets a hot new guy named Brody. Oh – Unique transferred to McKinley, there’s a new girl named Marly whose mom is the overweight new lunch lady (think what’s eating gilbert grape), and Puck’s younger brother auditioned for Glee club but didn’t make it because he threw a fit at getting cut off during his song. And that’s what you missed in episode 1!
Now on to number 2! Since Britney Spears
is a judge on the X-Factor which happens to be on Fox is really hot right now, this week’s focus is on her music – Britney 2.0. Also – Glee’s Brittany S. Pierce is having a meltdown ala Britney. We open with Brittany in the hallway talking about how she is re-living senior year. Blaine stops and asks her who she is talking to, but it turns out she thought she was doing a voice over. Blaine can only shake his head and walk off. Brittany only has one thing to say – It’s Britney Bitch. This leads into a dance routine with the Cheerios to ‘Hold It Against Me’. It took me a few minutes to even realize what song it was. They danced with these strange red bars in their hands and Brittany was sharing some very lesbian-esque looks with new resident bitch cheerleader Kitty. They are cut off by Sue, who tells them that it was garbage.
Sue calls Brittany into her office. She proceeds to explain that her former assistant Becky (I heart Becky) managed to get a C+ on a test. Can I just say that I love that Becky signed her name ‘Bocky’? It seems that Brittany got an F- on the same test. The problem was that she answered every question ‘See other side’. I’m going to stop for a second. I know that Brittany has always been majorly dim-witted. They really seem to be pushing this to her being borderline handicapped. I mean, Sue just told her that Becky, who has down syndrome, is smarter than her. It’s kind of like on Friends when Ross was just neurotic in the beginning of the series, but by the end, he was a complete cartoon of himself. Sorry, I digress. The whole point of this meeting – Sue is kicking Brittany off of the Cheerios. Cue the downward spiral.
