‘Glee’ deteriorate premiere recap: New York State of Mind
5-6-7-8: Right from a top, we satisfied final night that a big-voiced lady from Lima was going to have a tough time on a streets of New York — or during least, on a barre conflicting NYADA dance manager Cassandra Jul (a surprisingly stellar Kate Hudson). Rachel had difficulty gripping adult in dance class, and with a new nickname, Schwimmer, Cassandra ensured that Iowa Ohio’s large star questioned either she belonged.
For me, it was an sparkling opening to a flattering good partial of Glee. There were usually about a bazillion questions going into tonight — What’s with Kurt? What about Finchel? Will we still even like a Glee club? — that for a many part, a uncover answered, and set adult what can hopefully be a flattering good McKinley/New York change going forward.
While Rachel dealt with feeling small, a remaining inhabitant champs behind during McKinley were feeling like a flattering large understanding — and it became apparent a Nationals win had left true to their heads: Sam did Taylor Lautner impressions for swooning girls, and Tina had a beginner personal assistant. She also got an luckless Mike Chang tattoo. Apparently they have given damaged adult since long-distance stinks. But all a check-ins and updates led to a pivotal doubt of a episode: Who’s a new Rachel, a.k.a a new star of a club?
It’s a current question. Many radio critics wondered a same thing over a summer. Tina, Blaine, Brittany — not to discuss new member Wade/Unique — all suspicion that they were unfailing to be a subsequent good iTunes seller. They motionless to settle it a usually approach anyone staid anything Jun – Aug 2012: With a “Call Me Maybe” sing-off.
The singing/dance-off (which Blaine won), judged by Artie, was amusing, although, most like Carly Rae Jepsen’s follow-up singles, not altogether impressive. Watching it, we felt a commencement of a panic start to climb in — nothing of them had Lea Michele’s voice, and her participation was missed. Surely, we suspicion to myself, Ryan Murphy and Co. have something adult their sleeves.
Enter Marley (Melissa Benoist), one of a new expel members this season. She’s a accessible sophomore …with a outrageous secret. It turns out her mom is McKinley’s lunch lady, and a newly-mean Glee bar kids frequently make fun of her, egged on by new Cheerio/Regina George wannabe, Kitty. we know that high propagandize kids can be mean, though this felt altogether vicious on a turn we haven’t gifted so distant on a uncover (Save for some Jesse St. James egg-throwing). I’ve got my eye on you, Kitty. Also, did it feel to anyone else a bit like a rehash of a Coach Beiste plotline? Obviously, we haven’t seen a play play out yet, though so far, we feel like a whole “Acceptance” storyline has been done.
