A Glee Christmas Quicky

Just a quick post (you thought quicky might mean something else, didn't you? tsk tsk) to say I loved the Glee Christmas episode.

Spoiler Alert! Don't read any farther if you don't want to know.

If I'm going to bash them when I don't agree with the writing, then I better damn well praise them when I do.

There was nothing about this episode I didn't like. Sue as the Grinch was brilliant. I was smiling through the whole skit. Bravo! (And take that Ed O'Neil after your petty remarks about Sue Sylvester/Jane Lynch).

The Finn/Rachel break-up seemed very realistic. I hope they have Finn stay in that 'bruised' mindset for a while.

And Coach Bieste, first with Brittney and then the gift for Artie. Loved it! It's just the kind of Schmoop I want in my Christmas viewing.

This felt more like last year's Glee then any previous episode this season.

One thing I would have loved to see, just for that extra 'awww' moment, would have been for Coach Bieste to also be at  Will's on Christmas Eve. Everyone else was, why not her?

Bravo Glee!


  1. I second that! It was all brilliant. I got all verklempt at "The Most Wonderful Day of the Year" and the Who's song at the end. Dammit, but Becky saying "Christmas came anyway, coach!" had me weeping openly. lol The whole Grinch thing was brilliant, even to the point of dressing Becky as a reindeer dog. AWW!
    I love Coach Beiste, and I loved her speech to Brittany, calling her punkin' and everything.
    I'm so glad to see Glee come back to its roots with the sick, dark, absurd, twisted humor.
    Do I have to say that I - again - wept to see the schmoop of Artie standing in the apparatus?

  2. I know! I loved Becky as the reindeer dog (Max?). And yeah, I teared up more than once during that episode.

    I'm looking forward to Glee coming back, but I have no idea when that'll be...
