‘Glee’ by a low-pitched numbers: A really Matt Bomer episode
“Glee” returned from a seven-week interregnum Tuesday night and finally gave us a sum on what happened after Quinn’s terrible automobile crash.
Turns out — spoiler warning — she’s alive, though wheelchair-bound and carefree she’ll recover feeling in her reduce extremities. “Glee” also gave us a good news that Finn and Rachel didn’t get married (because of a upsetting information about pronounced automobile crash), and of march are now jealous their skeleton since Finn is deliberation relocating to Los Angeles to purify pools with Puck. (Good business model, Puck — certainly no one in L.A. has already speckled a income opportunities in all those swimming pools.)
But many importantly, a lapse of “Glee” gave us this.
Yes, Matthew Bomer guest starred as a deftly named Cooper Anderson, hermit of Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss) and an actor famous for his nuanced work in a “Free Credit Rating” commercial.
“Blaine, your hermit is a best-looking male in North America,” Kurt announced on assembly his boyfriend’s sibling. we am prone to agree. we am also prone to note that Bomer’s chiseled face was a many engaging thing in what was, overall, a flattering muted part of “Glee.” Oh, and I’d also like to say, for a record, that if any of a wire networks confirm to launch a uncover called “Here’s Bomer: One Hour of Extreme Matt Bomer Close-Ups Starring Matt Bomer, With Cameo Appearances by Matt Bomer’s Equally Handsome Clones,” well, we would watch that. Just something to consider.
Before relocating on to a low-pitched numbers assessment, we should substantially also note that Sue Sylvester found out that her unborn baby lady expected has Down syndrome, and that she’s also still feuding with Nene Leakes, who is now co-coach of a Cheerios. Great — we only remarkable that. Now we can ensue directly to a songs, and some-more of this.
“I’m Still Standing” — Quinn and Artie
“Glee’s” dual wheelchair-bound leads lonesome this Elton John strike to announce their delight over their disabilities. A good sentiment, though something about this shred wasn’t as enterprising as it should have been. It’s tantalizing to censure that on a immobility of performers Dianna Agron and Kevin McHale but, as a successive series in a part demonstrated, it’s probable to communicate transformation and fad even when a actors can’t get adult and dance. Maybe a some-more crafty revise would have helped? In any case, we give it a C.
“Hungry Like a Wolf”/“Rio” mash-up — Blaine and Cooper
Apparently Blaine and his hermit used to do “dueling Simon LeBon impressions” when they were kids. Honestly, we didn’t see a whole lot of LeBon in their proceed to this Duran Duran mash-up. They were fun to watch. And Darren Criss, we extol we for convincing me that we indeed wanted to jump on tip of that piano and weren’t only doing so since restraint demanded it. But something about this cover sucked all a cherry ice cream grin out of a originals. Am we inequitable due to my lifelong appreciation of Duran Duran? Maybe. But we still have to give another C.
“Fighter” — Blaine
You won’t like a Hulk when he’s angry, though we will like Darren Criss, since he sings Christina Aguilera tunes with self-assurance while also attack punching bags and holding showers during that a H2O bounces off his behind in a visually alluring canopy. As an combined bonus, he also jumped on theatre and stood in front of a garland of TVs that inexplicably had been built there and were concurrently broadcasting images of Matt Bomer. Make sense? Not a bit. But who cares? Bomer! Grade: B-.
“Up, Up, Up” — Whole cast
Ah, a classical comparison skip day number. This was a many enterprising set square of a night, slicing between a kids’ drum coaster float by Six Flags (thank God they didn’t run into this guy, who, come to consider of it, kind of dresses like Blaine) and Artie and Quinn’s revisit to a disabled-centric movement park. This series boasted all a appetite a initial Artie/Quinn pairing lacked. And it done good use of a infectious Givers song. Grade: B.
“Somebody That we Used to Know” — Blaine and Cooper
What’s that, “Glee”? You wish to broach some-more Bomer before shutting down for a week? And we wish to broach that in a form of an heated Gotye face-off of handsomeness between Bomer and Criss, a face-off that improbably allows them to solve their long-simmering differences in reduction than 3 minutes? Fine. You wish to play like that, afterwards I’ll go right forward and give we a B+. And yes, we got a and since Matthew Bomer is only so damn handsome. But don’t take my word for it. Watch and verify.
