She's also lost a lot of weight in recent photos. I don't know if she's extremely so, more like an Allison Williams where it definitely wouldn't hurt to put on some weight.

That proposal was the invention of someone who's only experience of love comes from romantic comedies and was deeply embarrassing for all involved. Rachel pulled the exact same poo poo she pulled on Whoopi Goldberg and it's going to work again and that pisses me off.

But on the plus side Becca Tobin is absoulutely adorable :3: Even if Naya Rivera quits Glee tomorrow they've still got me :negative:

They managed not to butcher any of the Beatles songs which was a pleasant surprise. None of them stood out as exceptional, but I also didn't cringe like I expected to, so that's good. Also, Blaine dressed up as a Beatle was a good look on him, far better than that Charlie Brown motif proposal suit or whatever the gently caress was going on, opposite Kurt's Joker-chic.

Ugh. Kids getting married/engaged in High School is the dumbest loving thing, but it does happen. Hopefully the future episodes show the dark side of the decision.

Oh well. The episode wasn't good but it was far from the worst Glee has served up. Sue was on her A-game.

The combination of both this being Glee, the show only running for another season or two max, and Kurt/Blaine being the last couple standing of the prior established ones (besides Will/Emma but Jayma Mays is pretty much a guest star at this point) leads me to believe that they're just going to be in love and maybe struggle a little with settling down after Blaine graduates.

And the show will probably end with their wedding now (where I'd have bet good money before that the show would've ended with Finn and Rachel getting married).

So teen marriage between Rachael and Finn is BAD but teen marriage between Kurt and Blaine is OKAY because it's progressive?

I was pleasantly surprised with the episode and loved all of it! The amount of songs and the way they wove into the plot made it feel like a "musical version" of the show, if that makes sense. I really liked how the singing made sense and it was used to progress the plot.

Blaine and Kurt are engaged :3:

Loved the way they did the call back to the staircase. And two kisses without interruption from Mercedes. Seems like the producers are going to put their attention on to Klaine now that Finn is gone.


Great way to start a season, especially with Kitty's scene in the choir room. I really like what they've done with her character.

A+ episode.



EDIT: I just realized that Finn will not be at Kurt's wedding. But maybe having Cooper Anderson return will make up for it? That's so sad - because you'd think that Kurt would want to tell his brother what happened, and it did seem weird that Finn wasn't at the proposal, especially with Mercedes, Santana and Rachel showing up (good thing the last two have jobs to pay for those airline tickets!)

I'm actually really damned happy with this episode despite knowing that the writing and editing were pretty inconsistent -- Blaine talking about proposing in the first half was super stilted and awkward, but the actual proposal itself was some of the finest writing and acting I've seen from both of them.

Artie and Kitty seemed kinda "hmm" at first but also just got better as we went along.

Every scene between the Hummels was always fantastic.

I actually liked Rachel here as well 'cause it's not like she's stalking her director (who's suddenly a different person from the folks she was auditioning for before :raise:); he went into her place of work, and she took the opportunity to really work (...lol...?) for what she wants.

All in all, yeah, I was smiling through a lot of this.

(la la la who's Sue la la I can't hear you I don't recall a character by that name on this show)

The version of Yesterday was kinda awful, but otherwise it wasn't bad, the fou guys dressed up as the Beatles was pretty neat.. My main problem is that it wasn't funny, the humor is as much Glee as the music is, and it was completely lacking this episode.
Also i wish they had come up with some reason for having the kids come back to the school, Kurt doesn't seem to be doing anything that couldn't be done elsewhere, and we don't really need more storylines about how much of a special snowflake Rachel is.

I thought the episode was solid. Frankly (and this might sound odd) I feel weird about watching anything Glee right now, and will until the Finn/Cory Memorial Episode happens. Finn (well, specifically in his Will 2.0 role) was literally my favorite character on the show because A) it fit his character perfectly B) it was brilliantly performed and C) it was an actually logical answer to the whole "high school graduate comes back" trope that managed to not feel forced. I guess it's just that I know the episode will be so gut-wrenching that I'm dreading seeing it, and I feel like it'll be a weight off once I finally do.

Nthing the people who said the proposal was super-awkward and saccharine even for TV, but if it was nice for some people I honestly don't give a poo poo.

Who should she when the show doesn't. :haw:

But yeah, Kurt was one of the most vocal about how ridiculous it was. They had a whole episode dedicated to getting them to reconsider with both sets of parents.

Burt's speech about never knowing how much time you have with someone got me a bit misty eyed all things considered though.

It's also apropos of my feelings about Burt since Mike O'Malley is probably down to only guesting since he's on some new sitcom.

Also, Burt never said how he felt when Blaine said it. He just said Kurt had to decide for himself. :perfectdad:

Burt Hummel is the best TV dad ever. Whenever he has a heart to heart with Kurt, it always resonates with me on some kind of level and this one was no different. He always manages to put things in perspective.

After that scene, I totally wanted a feels meltdown so I watched the one where he sends Kurt off to NYC. Didn't even make it to the "but you won't" part before I got washed away in the tsunami of feels. :negative:

He was, but he also shut up awfully fast when Rachel asked him what he'd do if Blaine proposed that day (and the cut Kurt/Blaine scene from the third season Christmas episode has Kurt unequivocally saying 'yes' to what he blithely assumes is Blaine offering him an engagement ring).

I thought this episode was decent enough. It had a number of fun performances (I ended up enjoying "Got To Get You Into My Life" and "Help" the most, they had a ton of energy and they were just fun to watch), but "All You Need Is Love" is a close second. Mostly I agree with Spergatory's take on the episode, it was fun and gleeful and I'll always prefer that over dumb offensive PSA plots or pointless drama.

I liked Blaine's proposal speech. It was really sweet and I think Darren nailed the delivery (and I've had issues with some of his acting choices in the past). The best scene of the episode was probably the Kurt and Burt talk in the car, the actors work really well together and the writing for it was pretty good. I kind of want to see Kurt's mother in a flashback some day :3:

I genuinely keep forgetting that people actually like Sue here. Serious question: Glee's hamfisted unsubtle PSAs are considered "offensive," but Sue dumping meat scum on Figgins and wanting to rid his office of his "deep ethnic musk" is considered high comedy? Like, it's great when she make fun of Will for inappropriate relations with his students when the woman was openly salivating over Blaine in her office last year?

I really just do not understand this.
