    Hey, does anyone understand why Finn and Rachels song was so offensive in the deuts episode? I didn't get it
    They were deliberately trying to throw the competition so they lost, so that Sam would win and would be more likely to stay in New Directions.

    I get that part, but in the episode Finn says "we don't just need a bad song, it needs to be downright offensive", and Mr Shue and everyone are disgusted after they sing it. Something do to with the song and the costumes Finn and Rachel were wearing during that song make it offensive and I didn't understand why

    Ohh, I get you, I thought you meant 'why were they trying to make it offensive' rather than 'what was it that made the song offensive'. My bad!

    It was a love song (with overtones of sexytime - "come give me your sweetness, I'm lying safe in your arms...") between a priest and a barely-legal Catholic schoolgirl.

    And as if that wasn't bad enough, the song's about being 'born again' through romance and sexytime, which - especially combined with the costumes - brings to mind the resurrection of Christ, and adds a whole 'nother layer of tasteless. Particularly because, as we saw in 'Grilled Cheesus', religion's kind of a big deal for quite a few of the Glee kids.

    I didn't get this either but apparently it's because they were dressed as a nun/priest (?? been a while since I saw it so this might not be quite right) and the song is quite provocative.

    Loved the Rocky Horror show - especially Time Warp, Will & Emma's song and Kurt in a wig.

    A clip of Bieste in an upcoming episode looks amazing. I hope she's in more eps.
    PS. Is there a reason Puck is in juvy? Is it purely to give Sam time to settle in with Quinn??

    I've already watched the Rocky Horror ep (10 kinds of awesome!) and the one after with my lovely Bieste... :love:
    Now waiting for the superbowl ep? Or is it the one with Gwyneth Paltrow? I can't keep up lol
    I think they should do a Sondheim themed episode, I know most people don't know who he is, but it's only fair considering he's one of the most influential musical theatre composers ever! And they've already had Bernadette Peters on so... it has to be done! And I would die to see Sue Sylvester singing 'Ladies who Lunch' or doing the 'Beans' rap from Into the Woods. :sad:

    Wait, when did they have Bernadette Peters on?

    The superbowl ep was shown on Sunday in the US.

    Even for Glee, I thought it stretched it too far. The cannon was just ridiculous, and I didn't find the football boys' actions at all realistic...

    No it was because at that time, Mark Salling (Puck) was busy releasing his debut album, Pipe Dreams.

    I agree with Bezzler, the Superbowl episode was okay. Can't believe it managed to gain 27million views.

    I despise the Thriller/Heads Will Roll mash up, should have just left MJ alone to be honest.
    Cheerios routine wasn't even decent, heavily based on bike stunts and flashy props.

    The more I see Rachel and Puck together the more I like them and the more I get mad at Finn.

    Just watched the next 4 episodes of Glee (episodes 6-9) online. So good! First time in season 2 that I've actually laughed at the episodes. I love Brittany's one liners...she's so funny! :lol:

    I thought it was series 1. I vaguely recall Bernie being in an office with Schue but I've googled it and I can't find it. Maybe I made it up! :eek3: :sad:
    Well if it hasn't happened, it needs to happen!

    FINN IS SUCH A HYPOCRITE! So not only has he now cheated on Quinn, he's actively encouraging her to cheat on Sam WITH HIM?! Poor Sam; I like him.
    I thought the Silly Love Songs ep was really good as a whole actually, bar Tina breaking down Felt like good old Glee.

    I don't remember Mercedes singing it but 'Don't Make Me Over' is gorgeous!
