The Glee Project! Or as I like to call it, GleePro. It’s about a bunch of wannabe Gleeks singing their hearts out to try for a guest-starring role on the show as a werewolf with a lovely alto or a socially awkward opera star or a sexually confused musical mermaid, or something. Does anyone really know what Glee is about anymore?
In any case, this show is pretty entertaining, more so than Glee, anyway. Drama kids are cray cray!
I didn’t watch the audition episode, so please let me know if I missed anything vital about any of the kids. Also you should know I hate Ryan Murphy. He’s a dick, as I’m sure we’ll see soon.
Just a disclaimer: I’m about to make fun of EVERYONE in these recaps. Race, religion, disability, all are fair game. Just know that I don’t mean to be offensive to anyone, everything is in good fun. If anyone is bothered by my comments, sorry, but that’s how we roll on the ‘Gasm.
That said, here’s GleePro season 2 episode 1!
First off we meet Dani. She is the second coming of Justin Bieber (although no one wanted his first coming except Selena Gomez, hay-oh!), but as a lesbian. I wonder if she’s been featured on the Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber tumblr. She has his old, classic hairstyle though, not the douchey faux hawk pompadour. She is a girl, right? Even her name is androgynous. I’m just going to call her D. Biebs until I (or you) think of something more clever.
Charlie is a beanie-wearing “cool guy.” Abraham is our token Asian this season. Can anyone say Mike Chang’s replacement?
This season’s blonde bimbo is Ali, and she’s in a wheelchair. Say hello to the new Artie. Wow, Ryan Murphy is really not being coy about filling in the wholes the other characters left. Lily is the chubby girl.
My ears already hurt, and no one has even sang yet, because whenever a new person enters the room they all scream and jump up and hug each other like they’re seeing their best friend after five years apart. It’s freaking annoying. Peppy little bastards. I know I’m being crotchety, sorry all.
Mario is blind. I want to call him The Blind Side, for obvious reasons. Is that terible? It seems like they’re just picking misfits for the hell of it now.
Come on, don’t tell me you don’t see it (athough Mario sure doesn’t! That’s it, I’m going to hell).
Wheelchair Barbie is nice enough to tell us about her fellow weirdos. Tyler is transgendered (he used to be a girl, now he’s rocking the peen). Maxfield just started singing six months ago. But he’s a country singer, so six months is more than enough time to be good at it.
There’s Taryn, who has an interesting mixed race look and really big eyes. Aylin looks like the unfortunate evil spawn of a fly and Teresa from RHONJ. She’s happy there are lots of hot guys in the cast because she’s ready to get down and dirty. She’s also from a devout Muslim family.
Nellie doesn’t seem to have full control over her mouth movements. She looks like Ellis from last season plus a few years. I’m always going to think of her as Ellis now, so I’m going to call her Nellis.
Anyone else agree with me on this one?
Robert the casting director comes by to tell everyone this weeks’ theme- individuality. Michael is cute. He’s not looking forward to this week’s lesson as he’s plain and boring. But he’ll get by on his looks.
The song for the HW assignment is Gaga’s “Born this Way”, which is kind of ironic for Tyler, no?
