First, I would like to start by saying there are some serious issues with this episode. For one thing, it seemed a little out of character for Emma to marry Carl in Las Vegas on a weekend! Also, Finchel fans didn’t that break-up just suck? I mean, of all the ways of Finn and Rachel to break-up that was the worst. As for the rest of the episode and the other characters it was alright. The quality of the musical performances varied; I thought “Hey, Soul Sister” and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” were good, but the others ranged from just fine to not that exciting. I did like the Hipster’s performance though. Brittany and Artie turned out to be a cute couple. Well, Unfortunately that’s all for now; I give this episode a C+.
Quote of the week from Brittany:”I know that I’m more talented than you. Britney Spears told me that.”

“Furt” was quite a good episode. First off though I will start off with the weakness’s in this episode. I thought Sue storyline about her marrying herself was weird. That said, everything else about Sue’s storyline was good. Sue was actually a very good principal/teacher in this episode. Kurt was good, but I thought it was a little too much. I mean, seems like he has been taking up all of the storylines. I get to Kurt storyline later.
I want to address Finchel fans there is a good amount of Finn/Rachel interaction in this episode. In the beginning of the episode Rachel tells Finn how disappointed she was that Finn wouldn’t stand up to Karfosky. The most important Finchel moments however happen later, Rachel finally says “I love you” to Finn and Rachel admits to Finn that she did not have sex with Jesse. I know however some of you will be disappointed that there was no Finn/Rachel sex, but reason yet to give up hope we still have a lot of episodes left before the season is over. Over than that there is one more important thing you need to know, Santana threatens to reveal to Rachel that Finn and her had sex which Finn is very concerned about.
Next up, Quinn and Sam promise ring. They’ve only dated for six weeks and Sam practically proposes to her? Crazy, but Sam did fight for Kurt so I guess I can forgive some of the Sam/Quinn storyline for now.
While I thought this episode did focus a little too much on Kurt(I mean Burt and Carole’s wedding vow’s seemed to be all about Kurt). I liked how they addressed Kurt’s bullying.
To sum it up, it was a good episode. Arguably one of the best this season so far, I will give this episode a A-.
Quote(by Kurt):”My power rangers got married and divorced in so many combinations, they were like Fleetwood Mac.”

I liked this episode, but just thought it was okay, nothing special. It wasn’t awful, but I thought some things about this episode were weird. First, I’ll start off saying there’s no finchel in this one shippers. Next the weird things, Mercedes obsessing about tattertots for one. It’s seems a little out of character for me to see Mercedes so into tattertots because of her supposed need for a boyfriend. I just didn’t buy it. Also, who would have foresaw Mercedes sticking tattertots up Sue Sylvester’s tail pipe? That’s pretty uncharacteristic of her. Next, Terri and Will having sex, doesn’t this go against what the first thirteen episodes of the first season. That they should not be together?
Okay, there were positives in this episode. Rachel’s storyline was fine in this episode. All of the song and dance numbers were good. I enjoyed “Forget You” and the mash-up of “Singin in the Rain/Umbrella”. The dancing by Mike Chang in “Make ‘Em Laugh” was nice. Overall, other than Mercedes’ storyline a good episode. I will give this one a C+. The Brittany quote of the night is “I stopped after M and N. I felt they were too similar and got frustrated.”

Safe to say “Never Been Kissed” is a good episode. There are some pretty big surprises in this one. Also, remember “Vitamin D”? Because, mash-ups are back! First I will start off by telling Finchel fans that there are not many Finn and Rachel scenes in this episode. That said, what we did get was awesome. First, it starts off with Finn and Sam bathing in the locker room. Sam asks Finn advice on how to “cool down” while making out. Finn tells Sam about the “mailman” and that’s when he realizes coach Beiste can be his version of the mailman. Eventually Quinn finds out, and after some misunderstandings and some advice from coach Sylvester the school figures out about it. This embarrasses coach Beiste which forces her to quit, Beiste later admits to Will she has never been kissed. Will confronts the Glee Club and everybody learns why Sam(and Tina) imagine coach Beiste. This is also when we get the Santana quote “This wouldn’t happen if everybody just put out”. The boys make it up to coach Beiste by doing their mash-up of “Stop! In the name of Love/Free Your Mind”.
Next interesting storyline is Puck and Artie. Puck gets paroled from juvie after agreeing to do community service, which he tells Artie would be helping a cripple(aka him). The first thing they do together is busk for money, they do “One Love”. They make around $300, Puck notices Artie wanting Brittany and decides to help him by going on a double date with Santana. Puck and Artie get along until Puck wants to dine and dash, he leaves Artie after Artie didn’t want to do it. Puck and Artie later make up when Puck is threatened with being sent back to Juvie(his parole officer thought he was helping “Crips” as in gang members).
The most memorable storyline is from Kurt. After more bullying from Karofsky(no Azimio) Kurt gets sick and tired of all the bullying he takes. He decides to check out the all boys school that will be their competition for sectionals. There he finds Blaine who is everything he is not; he is popular, well liked, and not picked on by anyone. Kurt is awestruck when Blaine and company sing “Teenage Dream”. He is also openly gay. Blaine inspires Kurt to find courage in himself to stand up to bullies. When Kurt later confronts Karofsky in the locker room, Karosky kisses him. This was one of the highlights of this episode, Max Adler did a terrific job in this scene. Kurt looks shocked by this and tells Blaine who comes over to try to help. Karofsky denies anything happened and we are left with Blaine buying lunch for Kurt.
Overall, another solid episode for “Glee”. Also, just so you know the girls sang “Start me up/Livin on a prayer” which was pretty good but I had some issues with the camera work. I would give this episode a good old “B”.
p.s. Boys totally won that mash-up duel.
Memoriable quotes: Rachel: “Spies!” Puck: “They kept taking my waffles.” Puck: “lego my Eggo!”
