‘Glee’ Season 4, Episode 2, ‘Britney 2.0′: TV Recap
By Josée Rose
Marley (Melissa Benoist, L), Unique (Alex Newell, C) and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz, R) perform in gym category in a “Britney 2.0″ part of GLEE
Hello again and acquire to a weekly “Glee” installment. Were we vehement for a second Britney Spears part of a show? The initial one was called “Britney/Brittany” and aired during deteriorate 2 in 2010 and featured (among other numbers) a flattering decent “I’m A Slave 4 U” series by Heather Morris (and snakes) and “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Lea Michele. This week’s part has Michele behaving “Oops! … we Did It Again” and Morris doing “Hold It Against Me” and “Gimme More,” and in box we didn’t have adequate cocktail culture, some of Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend.”
McKinley: Brittany’s on tip of a universe – she gets to soothe each impulse of her comparison year again (because she unsuccessful final year) — she’s conduct Cheerio and Vice Rachel of a Glee Club. And she’s articulate to herself, yet it’s usually given she unequivocally misses Santana. Aw. Let’s get right into a music–Brittany does an OK delivery of Spears’ s “Hold It Against Me” with a Cheerios (including Kitty) as backup. There’s a lot of hip-gyrating and some (unnecessary) atmosphere blades. After a final Britney Spears part we approaching Glee to go REALLY BIG (since there are a lot of other artists one could underline and there were snakes in a other Britney Spears episode) and this opening fell short. It felt very…high school. Also, a camera changed around so most we couldn’t concentration on Morris or a choreography. And maybe it’s a strain or something, yet it sounded unequivocally Auto Tuned. we didn’t consider Heather Morris was unequivocally “featured” or used to her fullest intensity here – she’s an extraordinary dancer, yet that wasn’t showcased during all.
Coach Sue doesn’t consider it’s all that good either. Garbage, in fact. Oh my God. There’s no approach Brittany is unequivocally that dumb. Her algebra examination gets an F-. we didn’t even know there was an F-. Sue kicks her off a group and creates Kitty conduct Cheerio. “Tough adore feels a lot like mean.” Afterwards, we finally see Santana, who’s super bustling with entertaining use each night until homecoming, so she doesn’t have time to “scissor Skype” (I swear I’m not creation that up). They unequivocally are creation Brittany into a caricature. Who would unequivocally pull rainbows on a behind of their test. Clearly Brittany isn’t on tip of a universe anymore.
There’s also a lot of aged faces. Here’s WEMMA — Will and Emma double-team Brittany (who did in fact, remove a high pony, and is wearing an outfit from a Lost and Found–she kind of looks homeless…) for a assembly and give her a poster called “So You Look Like Crap.” But Brittany turns down their assistance given she has no time.
But good news! They’re going to perform during a Pep Rally and Schue’s good suspicion is to assistance Brittany get behind on lane by doing another Britney Spears week. Since Brittany is desirous by Britney, this should repair everything. we wish they had that suspicion when we was in high school. Do a 42-minute convention on something that inspires you, even if it is Britney Spears. This segues easily into Artie and Blaine doing a mashup of “Boys” and Bieber’s “Boyfriend” that is Ok yet not stellar. I’m watchful for BIG.
Unique tries to form a bond with Marley, who is meddlesome in Jake. He’s not for you, is Unique’s rather transparent summary — delivered by “Womanizer.” This would have been a good sex-appeal strain (But we theory they’re saving all a sex interest in this part for Rachel). The strain facilities Unique with Marley and Tina–and a garland of pointless girls as backup. Again, not most oomph. There’s a lot of shots of Jake though. He unequivocally is channeling Puck. But we can tell Marley has a good voice…she unequivocally can be Rachel 2.0.
Tina, Sam and Joe confirm to sing an acoustic chronicle of “3″ that is substantially a best strain of a part so far. It’s strange and different, and showcases Tina’s voice, yet a strain is interrupted when Brittany tries to trim her conduct given she can’t have her high pony. The Glee kids conduct to stop her yet she gets bombarded by Jacob Ben Israel and his microphone. This causes her to go into … arrange of a fury and she beats him with a immature umbrella. And Schue stands there, not interlude her, instead reprimanding Jake about not going to category and roving a scooter in a hall. Beating a child with an powerful vs scooter. Yes, we see that one needs evident attention.
New Kid scene: Jake and Marley accommodate out by a bleachers for their “date” and have a heart to heart that leads to her singing “U Drive Me Crazy” and Jake fasten in, adding Aerosmith’s “Crazy.” we also like this mashup. Again, Marley’s voice is awesome. There’s unequivocally chemistry between these dual (after final week we suspicion it was going to be Marley and Sam, so this should be interesting. An arriving adore triangle, perhaps?) and a stage ends with Jake giving Marley his leather jacket. So far, a nude down songs are shining.
Brittany has 70 ounces of espresso and talks to Kiki instead of Siri. The rest of a Glee Club wants Brittany to be a lead during a Pep Rally, that doesn’t seem to excite her that much, given she’ll have to mouth sync given her voice is too diseased to sing live. “We don’t mouth sync” Blaine says… (ha. That’s a good answer to a doubt that’s been lifted a lot…now usually answer a Auto Tune question, please).
Lunch time: in a cafeteria a football players start picking on Marley’s mom. When Marley stands adult to them, they start picking on her. Jake stands adult for her, gets into a quarrel and Schue finally stairs in, holding him to accommodate Puck. Puck is a strange bad ass: he had his initial trio during 7 and once kick adult a military horse. (Line of a night). Puck says what done him a male was being in Glee Club, not banging each stylish during propagandize twice. Puck has to conduct behind to LA for his date with a third curtain adult on “The Bachelor” yet tells Jake that no matter what, they’re brothers.
It’s finally time for a Pep Rally. The Glee Club is all ready…well solely for Brittany. She’s all about eating Cheetos and wearing about 90% reduction garments than a rest of a bar combined. Uh. Ok, this doesn’t go unequivocally good during all, notwithstanding a Cheetos. Kitty shouts out that they’re mouth syncing and a whole gym boos. “Lip syncing is a homogeneous of doping in veteran sports!” Schue yells. And Brittany resigns from Glee Club effective immediately.
Sam has Brittany accommodate him in a auditorium, given he knows what she’s doing: she’s attack stone bottom so she can devise a stately quip like Britney, who is removing $14 million to be on X Factor. (Thank you, shameless plug). Sam is entertainment an intervention. One of a categorical issues is Brittany blank Santana and Sam offers to be her friend.
Brittany starts her comeback. She complicated a school’s licence and tells Coach Sue that she’s technically still president, and she drafted an executive sequence (in crayon) to be backed on a Cheerios. Although an stupid plan, Sue does credit Brittany with putting some suspicion and a small bit of proof into it. Sue wants Brittany to spin her grades around, yet she already is. She’s removing tutored by Schue and Emma and knows who President Obama is (but thinks Washington is Glenn Close…) and gets a C- on her U.S. story exam. Sue lets her behind on a team.
Over in NYC, Cassandra Jul informs Rachel that she doesn’t have any sex interest to do a convincing tango. (Truth). And in one of her some-more constructive-criticism moments, she tells Rachel that she is “awkward and tentative” and moves like she’s “ashamed” of her body. There’s a lot of tough adore in this episode. But no worries, Kurt and Rachel found this outrageous loft that’s usually $1800 a month and there’s New York Domino’s. They are “living in a future.” Nobody has listened from Finn. Kurt has a devise – he’s going to reapply to NYADA 2nd semester, yet until afterwards he hopes to get a pursuit during Vogue. (Because that’s realistic). Rachel complains about Cassy Jul “the biggest sight mutilate in Broadway history.” Kurt explains – she flips out on an aged male whose dungeon phone rings during her performance. “You can’t cavern into her, we have to keep fighting” Kurt advises. Oh. we see where this is going.
Brody is doing 98 lay ups on a park bench, given that’s also normal. Rachel confides that Cassy told her that she’s not sexy, to that Brody immediately replies “you’re crazy sexy.” And they confirm to challenge Cassy’s order of blending top category group and freshmen and dance together. GASP!
Back in a dance studio, Rachel is dressed “Bob Fosse chic” yet Cassy thinks it’s “Walgreen’s Underwear Model.” Somehow Cassy lets Rachel do her series though too most hassle. And here’s a much-talked-about “Oops!…I Did It Again.” It done me consider of “Chicago” and a “Cell Block Tango” number. While i wouldn’t contend Rachel is super sexy, she’s not a prude. There’s a ton of chemistry between Rachel and Brody; Finn should substantially be worried. According to Cassy, Brody was incredible, Rachel was usually Ok (and a strain was garbage). She doesn’t see Rachel in voluptuous roles, she sees her as Maria von Trapp, Willy Loman, Shrek. Then Rachel drops a bomb: “You’re usually sceptical of me, of all of us. Because we have a whole careers forward of us and your’s finished before it even began. We’re a destiny and you’re usually some YouTube joke.” Well. That wasn’t smart. She gets kicked out of class.
Later on Rachel goes to apologize to Cassy. Cassy points out a rather critical fact — both her and Rachel snapped and lashed out, yes, yet all it took for Rachel to remove it was “honest feedback and dance class.” How’s she going to make it on Broadway where all there is inspection and judgment? What if her outburst was taped and posted on a Internet? You usually have one chance, we can’t screw it up. Cassy tells Rachel that she was great, yet not prepared for a pressure. “it’s a whole lot some-more infamous out there than it is in here.” And that’s given she picks on her students, so they are ready. Cassy doesn’t trust in second chances given she knows they don’t exist, yet propagandize process dictates that Rachel usually gets a warning and is on probation. And has to do chores.
At their overwhelming apartment, Rachel paints Finn’s name in a outrageous double heart. Ok that’s a small crazy. Kurt and Rachel are going to get cake, yet Brody arrives with an orchid after a 45 notation float on a J train. He brings her an orchid given it’s good fitness for a new place. Brody unequivocally favourite dancing with Rachel, thinks she’s voluptuous and tries to lick her…but Rachel stops him. Brody is going to honour her boundaries, yet will always be meditative of kissing her. Wow. A 45-minute sight float and he takes rejecting rather well.
Final scene: Jake finds Marley to ask if he can lay subsequent to her in Glee Club. Apparently they are going to be platonic friends, generally given she finds out Jake is dating Kitty (who final Jake’s jacket). Aw. that was a unhappy scene, Marley was unequivocally devastated. So she decides to sing one of her favorite songs (after Jake strictly joins a club), “Everytime” — Marley’s voice shown as Rachel is finally authorised to dance during NYADA. Brittany stares during her mechanism shade watchful for Santana to come online to iChat with her…but she’s away. Rachel also paints over her double Finn heart and Marley sees Jake and Kitty together on a football field.
Next week Sarah Jessica Parker! Student elections with a discuss and a half-naked Sam. More chemistry between Rachel and Brody.
So what did we think? If this part was ostensible to showcase Heather Morris, it unequivocally didn’t. Rachel’s storyline in NYC is most some-more interesting. we wish they don’t continue to make Glee Club sore and uninteresting, and frankly, uncanny and unrealistic. What do we think?
