GLEE re-cap

Hi friends. I realized I spent most of Wednesday discussing how awesome Tuesday night's episode of GLEE was. (Season 2, Episode 1 - titled "Audition") I thought it would be fun to do a weekly blog with a Top 10 countdown of my favorite quotes/moments from each episode. And any other GLEEks out there can share their favorite moments, too. Please don't read if you haven't seen the episode! I don't want to spoil anything for you. And now without further ado, here is my first GLEE re-cap...or as I'm going to call it from now on: my first "GLEE-cap".


10. The first 3 minutes were so great. Jacob went around to check in with the Glee kids to see what they did all summer. Favorite quotes:

* "People thought I went on vacation, but I actually spent the summer lost in the sewers." -Brittany

* "Did you know there's a forum on my blog that's begging you to stop rapping?" -Jacob to Mr. Schuester

* "When are you slated to make your triumphant return to the Shire?" -Jacob to Rachel (who is beaming for the camera) because she's so short.

9. I liked how Finn overheard the new character Sam Evans singing in the boys locker room showers, because that's how Mr. Schue found Finn in the first episode of Season 1. "I would have joined in with a kick-a harmony, but the dude was naked." -Finn

8. LOVED Rachel and Sunshine Corazon's scene in the girl's bathroom. "Listen Sunshine, we need chorus members. People to stand behind me and stare at me with wet, moved eyes while I sing solos." -Rachel. I really liked their cover of "Telephone" and then Sue coming in. "SHUT UP!"

7. Asian Camp? Amazing. Not quite sure why Mike Chang was dancing without a shirt, but whatevs.

6. Does anyone else think the new transfer student Sam Evans has a mouth like Jack Nicholson's Joker? That aside, he seems really likeable and I thought he had a good voice. "Billionaire" is a kind of a lame song, but I liked how the guys sang it. And Sam can play guitar! Get him in GLEE!

5. Finn auditioning for the Cheerios was both painful to watch and hysterical. When he did that forward roll and then pointed to Sue at the end, I think I died a little inside. Oh Finn. You are presh.

4. When Quinn and Santana were fighting in the hallways and Brittany said "Stop the violence" in her quiet, monotone voice.

3. Sunshine intro'd her song "Listen" by saying it was from the movie Dreamgirls. Rachel turns to everyone and says matter-of-factly "A Broadway show first." I loved Puck's "Shut up..." to her. Sunshine did a fantastic job on her song. Someone said her voice is like a mix between Rachel and Mercedes. Yep, I agree.

2. Dustin Goolsby, the new coach of Vocal Adrenaline. His name is Cheyenne Jackson and he's been on Broadway (awesome voice!) and 30 Rock (he's funny, too!) Fun fact: he had auditioned for Will Schuester two years ago, but the role went to Matthew Morrison. Anyway, I think he's great and I'm looking forward to seeing him and Vocal Adrenaline this season. Sad that he stole Sunshine, though. Enjoyed him walking away with her Hello Kitty backpack.

1. I know Rachel is ambitious and over-bearing but I can't help it - I love her. I thought it was cool that Finn called her out on what she did. And then I loved her song "What I Did For Love" at the end.

So there you go! Top Ten GLEE-cap for episode 1!

What did you guys think of the episode?

I also loved it when Sue called Santana "Boobs McGee".
