So, since channel 10 hasn't aired a new episode of Glee since the last week of NOVEMBER, 2010 (WTF dudes), I never got around to doing a highlights recap of the Furt episode. Oops.
BUT. The good news is that a "new" episode ("new" is a term I use loosely, since we are already THREE episodes behind the States) airs tonight, so here is a very belated round-up of the episode highlights (and lowlights, in this case). Enjoy!
Kurt / Karofsky bullying
I like that this bullying storyline hasn't been neatly solved in one Very Special Episode. There's a realness to the scenes between Kurt and Karofsky that I'm willing to bet a LOT of kids identify with.
The New Directions dudes band together to tell Karofsky to back off Kurt. It's a sweet gesture, and although I'm sure Karofsky and his jock friends would crush them to a pulp in about 0.1 of a second, it was nice to see the guys acting as a united front for Kurt.
The wedding of the season.....?
Oh, yeah. Kurt's dad and Finn's mother are getting married. They announced it at the start of the episode and then suddenly the wedding was completely organised within about three days (seriously, dress, venue, flowers, church, choreographed dance routine - who can do that within three days? Apparently Kurt can. Who knew?) I loved, loved, LOVED the dance number down the aisle to a Bruno Mars song (and I am not a Bruno Mars fan at all). It was fun, happy, silly and just awesome.
Mike and Carole's vows....
....were all about Kurt. If I was Finn, I would be so pissed. The whole wedding was basically a celebration of Kurt, and while I acknowledge he's been having a rough time, it seemed odd that he was the focus for a lot of the episode, rather than the people, you know, getting married. But then it wouldn't be Glee without inconsistent and bizarre storylines!
The stupidest wedding of the season
Sue's wedding to herself. Ugh. This was an obvious attempt on the part of the Glee producers to give Sue some screen time, because otherwise she just wouldn't have been in the episode. Honestly, as much as I love Sue's character, I would rather they left her out than concoct a stupid storyline like this one. And Carol Burnett guest starred as her mother, and I just think it was a crappy way to engineer Sue's mother coming back into town.
Kurt cried and then he left
To go to the Boys' School for Super-gelled Haircuts and Impromptu A Cappella Performances in the Hall (aka Dalton Academy). I think he's going to love it there.
New epsiode tonight peeps, so that means there will be another Glee highlight later in the week!
