It's a shame that spine compression injury didn't crack the nasal out of Quinn's voice.
Nice medley with Bomer and Blaine. Is Darren about 5'3"? He doesn't pair well with Bomer, kind of looks like Mickey Rooney.
And these PSAs about texting and driving are just too much.
Love NeNe's smackdown of Sue's geriatric pregnancy.
I liked the reaction shot of someone (Santana?) when Blaine's voice went into autotune. She was lie WTF?
Di on Letterman explaining how she broke her nose twice.
Damn bitch ain't dead. I was hoping for that.
Is the non-Asian kid with the yellow skin still on the show?
Finn and Puck are moving to California to do 3-ways with ugly cougars who need their pools cleaned.
sue is having a tard baby - didn't see that one coming.
When is Gloria Estefan on???
BLAINE!!! SHOWER!! HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't get the appeal of this Matt Bomer

What can I say? Another great episode of Glee.
You stop, r21! Dianna loves our gays.
[quote]I love Quinn's haircut and she wears the cutest shoes.
Oh, me too.
Saturday Night Live episode next week.
"We're not just brothers, right?" (pause)
I love Matt Bomer on White Collar and would watch him in everything, but I think darren criss really upstaged him in this episode. Better dancer, much better voice. But was great to see Bomer show off superb comic chops.
Agreeing with the poster who said she didn't see Sue's tard baby-plot coming, but certainly makes sense; statistics go way up when a mother is chronologically older (that's not me spouting a bitch opinion; is a medical fact.)
And it doesn't look like things will necessarily be all that rosy for Quinn - I like that Ryan Murphy really (seems to) know what he's doing.
Omg, Matt is a dreamboat!
" ... I like that Ryan Murphy really (seems to) know what he's doing." - R34
OH, MY SIDES!!!!!!!
Glee is a fucking crack!ship
Does anyone remember if Matt and Diana were onscreen together? I'm curious since Matt's husband is Alex Pettyfer's publicist, and I imagine there would be bad blood between the two "camps."
I think Dianna looks even more beautiful filled out.
Speaking of Alex Pettyfer, today is his birthday, I think he turns 24.
It's time to take Mark Salling off this show. He looks old as hell now and does not pass for a teenager in any way, shape, or form:
So it wouldn't seem Matt Bomer is winning an Emmy for this turn.
NPH - Emmy winner Guest Actor in a Comedy for Glee
So "Glee" is the "show that defined a generation"?. No. "Fighter" seemed a particularly bitter song for sibling rivalry. IIRC, Rachel was texting to Quinn about how they had to get married immediately-now, they had time to hold off, hear about and then cancel the wedding because of Quinn's accident? That acting master class scene went on forever.
Obviously the writers, directors, AND performers are all from the Cooper Anderson (wonder where THAT name came from) School of Dramatic Acting.
That autotune during Duran Duran did not sound very good at all.
I like Bomer here. He is a Disney Prince, though, isn't he.
"He is a Disney Prince, though, isn't he."
In what way?
Bomer & Criss worked well together, but Bomer's character was a jerk. Cooper Anderson as a name for Matt almost made up for everything else.
lousy bootleg shot at a TV, but someone got shirtless wet shoulders Blaine:
In the way that he looks like those perfectly drawn/animated Princes from the Disney movies, r45.
Glee already had one wheelchair-riding character too many: Artie, the rude, pompous, arm-waving twit. The last thing this show needed was someone else stuck in a chair and having them do the duet of "I"m Still Standing" was completely ridiculous.
I wish someone would have told TPTB that 99.999% of the country either doesn't know who Nene Leakes is or will go out of their way to avoid her so that it is not a good idea to use her as an actress on the show, since she is in no way an actress.
Please...Eric Stoltz should not be allowed to direct anymore episodes
Blaine IS gay on and off screen.
I enjoyed the episode, though I agree that "Fighter" was WAY too melodramatic a song for Blaine to sing. It is an intense song, not a song for your brother ruffling your feathers a bit. Not to mention while I thought Darren did an admirable job it is obviously a song that he could never do justice.
Matt Bomer is ridiculously good looking and was quite funny. He seemed like he was having a good time.
Aww, it was a good episode.
Love "I'm Still Standing" and it was fun. It doesn't have to be taken literally, sheesh.
I do like Nene and love how she puts Sue in her place, every time.
Wouldn't it be a really big liability issue if all of the actors rode on that roller coaster at the same time?
Matt is a hottie. A Total Disney Prince for sure.
The one thing I was most looking forward to was the crappiest, most rushed part.
The mash-up kind of sucked. The songs felt shoe-horned in and they didn't fit. I do realize Duran Duran songs are sort of silly but they should have found better use for them. All the trouble they went to to get the rights to use them, seems wasted.
Only logical that Sue should have a Down's Syndrome baby. Her scene with Becky was sweet.
Hope Dianna Agron is off the show after this season. She's so sugary sweet it makes me want to puke.
I'm a casual fan and have never seen Matt Bomer (other than in DL threads, of course) and I thought it was a great episode. Very funny.
Nene is a horrible performer. It was funny that Ryan put her on the show, but that joke isn't funny anymore.
I thought Darren Criss was attractive until I saw him standing next to Matt Bomer.
Did we know before this that Matt Bomer can sing?
Why did the entire glee club go on Senior Skip Day? Isn't that for seniors only?
R57, good question, but there you go wanting Glee to be logical again.
I agree with R49 -- making Diana's character wheelchair-bound was just silly and adds nothing to the show. (What do they call themselves doing? Trying to add depth to the show? Please.) And Darren is a good singer but his constipation face during every song he sings gets annoying after a while.
loved Somebody That I Used to Know with Bomer and Criss. SIZZLING HOT and excellent singing.
And I love Bomer, but did anyone else notice his lower half of his body? Hips down don't match the rest of his upper body.
GLEE's first season was fun and different. Now it's tired, tedious and without logic. The Sue character has no consistency and has become a cartoon. Puck looks to be 32. One wheelchair was boring imagine the dance moves possibilities with two !After a major accident, where I hoped the girl would have died, everything is rosy again. Rachel and Finn who cares ? Grimacing Blaine has completely upstaged Kirk who tries to play the role of the asexual boyfriend. And those visiting stars who bring nothing consequential to the show. They are introduced, they sing, they leave. And is the actor who plays Blaine the star of the show? Three songs of a tortured soul last night. He gets more love from the producers than from Kirk that's for sure. Even a shower scene...
[quote]GLEE's first season was fun and different. Now it's tired, tedious and without logic.
I agree. No wonder ratings have dropped.
[quote]The Sue character has no consistency and has become a cartoon.
I never did think she was that funny.
[quote]Puck looks to be 32.
He almost is! He'll be 30 in a few months. Look at how old and bloated he looks up close:
I'd soup his backside in the shower. And then lick. His. Shitter.
soap, of course. Soup? God, I'm hungry now.
Last night's ratings were a series low. :(
[quote]GLEE's first season was fun and different. Now it's tired, tedious and without logic.
I totally agree. It reminds me of "Ugly Betty". That's another show that was wildly fun to begin with, but by season three had become shrill and annoying, with weekly stunt casting and plots that made no sense.
Mark Salling really does look every day of his age. The idea that we are supposed to accept him as a highschool student is completely laughable.
And the ratings were down last night, not that surprising really. Matt Bomer I thought did a good job but he isn't really a high profile celebrity.
And yes, Darren Criss is so little and with a cute little bubble butt he just begs to be pounded hard.
With Glee there are no surprises since most if not all is presented to you well in advance before the episode is aired.
It's telling that the audience didn't care much for an episode when the previous episode ended with a cliffhanger.
Keep the plots, songs, and (full) scene clips on lockdown and keep the promo clips to a bare minimum. Also keep a regular airing schedule and the ratings will raise and remain decent.
Wow - some of you people are absolutely brutal - and take TV way, way too seriously. It's an hour of enjoyable fluff - nothing more. As far as logic goes, if that's what you really thrive on there's not a whole lot out there for you outside of 60 Minutes. I have yet to see the TV show/movie that I couldn't tear to shreds if I really gave it much thought - so I just sit and enjoy. And if I don't enjoy I just click the remote and change the channel.
I loved this episode and loved Bomer in it. But man, he does have a wide ass, doesn't he???
Some of us are "brutal" because we had been fans of the show but find it sad that the producers are determined to destroy it with inane plotting, ridiculous inconsistencies and stupid guest stars, i.e. Nene Leaks, who add nothing to the program.
Yeah, I caught up on the current episodes after taking a break after the Christmas one (which I thought was pretty awful). There have been some occasional bright spots this season - I did like the storylines featuring Mike Chang and Dave Karofsky. It seems like when the show takes a moment to focus on more minor characters and give them some serious, quality writing, the show really shines.
But the shallow, manufactured drama for the main characters, and the schizophrenic plot contrivances around show choir and defections, betrayals, etc. - yeah, it's getting old really fast. Also, the music is getting more and more Top 40 karaoke and out-of-place - they're really reaching to try to make sense of why the characters are singing the songs they do. There are still the occasional gems, but the show is the definition of "uneven".
I love it, R69!
all i care about is the seven year old boy who blaine made gay.
[quote] The Sue character has no consistency and has become a cartoon.
They've written Sue as a human being for two episodes in a row. I actually thought that was kind of refreshing.
The Voice of the Night
In response to his performance on this episode, Bomer has essentially been revealed to be a model, not an actor.
Here is Cooper Anderson's audition tape for Michael Bay...
Thanks r78 - as creepy as his "acting master class" - loved it!
I just downloaded the Goyte cover from iTunes. Divorced from the context of the show, you can just concentrate on the two male voices singing to each other about a failed love affair. It's pretty fucking hot.
There's just only so many times that the choir can be threatened, split apart, attacked, in danger, etc.
The show's great when it focuses on the characters or actual human being moments….like Kurt and his dad. But some characters seem to change identities with the wind.
Mr. Shu was sympathetic with a bitchy wife. Now he just comes across as a self important douche. And I love Jane Lynch but Sue is just…I don't even know.
R66, you actually nailed it with the Ugly Betty comparison. And Betty was amazing in Season 4 but by then the damage was done.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
