Glee -- "Hairography" -- 11/25/09



Spoiler:
Concerned that Sue is up to no good, Will pays a visit to an instructor of a competing Glee Club (guest star Eve) to see what information she might be leaking, which leads to the club getting a look at their hair-raising competition. Meanwhile, Kurt gives Rachel a makeover to impress Finn, but he may have ulterior motives.

Featured music:

Spoiler:
1. Bootylicious
2. Papa Don't Preach
3. Mashup: Crazy in Love/Hair
4. Imagine
5. True Colors
6. Don't Make Me Over

2 more episodes left and then Glee goes on hiatus until April 13th (It's announced in the FOX Midseason schedule)

Similar to V, they won't start shooting episode 14-22 until January.

Okay, the Imagine number choked me up a little.

Ok this wasn't on last night correct? I dvr'ed fox since my guide said there was a new episode, but 'So You Think You Can Dance" was on instead, so i guess nothing aired in regards to Glee correct?

That's the second time "Imagine" got that kind of reaction from me by a TV show. The first was Quantum Leap.

As a parent of a deaf child, that "Imagine" number got me crying pretty good. One of the hardest things is not being able to share my love of music with my son, but that was absolutely beautiful.

Sounds like you'd relate to one of my favorite movies, "Children of a Lesser God". Have you seen it?

So... were the deaf kids deaf in real life? Just wondering if that was tossed in to take some of the heat off of having an able-bodied actor in a wheelchair.

It is one of my favorite movies as well. I loved it long before my son was born but of course now it resonates more and I can actually follow the sign language!

I fell in love with Marlee Matlin a little after that movie.

I saw the Imagine scene completely different. It was extremely rude to interrupt the deaf team while they were performing. As if they alone could not carry the tune. They somehow needed help. This worked for 'TV' but I'm guessing in real life the deaf team would be pissed. The able-bodied always feel the need to be superior to the disabled in the world by 'helping' them out. No thanks. We got it covered over here in disabled-town.

Re: Glee -- "Hairography" -- 11/25/09

Had the Glee kids not join in the signing of "Imagine", perhaps your outrage would be more valid, but the combination of community to sing and sign "Imagine" by both schools created a song performance where the sum was greater than the parts.

Enjoyed tonight's episode, the second half was stronger, only because it was bolstered by good setup sequences in the first half. "Glee" always finds a way to wring emotions from their character's circumstances in song without undercutting unsaid feelings and thoughts.

Loved the reaction of the hairography by the deaf choir.

Quinn's journey has been an unexpected roller coaster of teenage pregnancy that I didn't see coming in its execution of emotions and song.

I loved Kurt's reaction when Rachel told him she was in love with Finn

I think this is the first episode where Rachel wasn't the main female vocalist in any of the group songs

I disagree. It was an informal rehearsal that turned into an impromptu jam session because people were moved which is kinda the whole point of music and performing. It is about expressing yourself and exploring and being open to sharing those emotions with your audience and your fellow performers. It wasn't condescending to my eyes nor my family's, rather we saw it as both sides seeing the other as EQUALS and opening up and sharing a beautiful moment brought on by a shared love of performing. My son loved seeing deaf people on a mainstream show since he could relate and loved that everyone was happy and performing TOGETHER. Again this wasn't the competition. I might agree in that case but that wasn't what the show portrayed and I don't see any need to read further into it than what was shown.

I thought it was rude at first too. I was like, what the hell. But then it all made sense with the last line of the song.

I'm glad Santana got some lines.

I thought Eve was going to give Sue some of her own medicine but I wasn't expecting the answer to, "Who do you think I am?"

So did he give Sue his actual set list or is he setting her up?
