I’ve decided to give up the qualifier of “brief” for these recaps since, let’s face it, they are getting pretty wordy since I can’t help myself, and this episode will be ESPECIALLY wordy. Because we will finally behold the glory and wonder that is…
Though I am not even gonna front–I CANNOT take recapping the Lima/high school parts anymore. Especially for this episode since that whole plot line was especially horrible and life sucking. I will sum in up in a nice paragraph for those who might have a slight interest, though I will confess I spent most of that time either staring blankly into the abyss or flailing on my phone over Adam’s parts with my Twitter cohorts. So it may not be entirely accurate.
This episode asks the eternal question:
ARE YOU A KATY OR A GAGA?
And to be honest I am not sure why. It has something to do with Mr. Schue and the kids and their newest show choir enemy–Throat Explosion–which sounds disgusting, and who apparently have the show choir market cornered on that whole misfit, outcast thing, like Gaga does, and that the New Directions have lost their misfit “cred” and are now as sunny and likeable and mainstream as Katy. The kids are each given an assignment to self identify as either being one of the two pop princesses and then flip the script and perform as the opposite. The goody two shoes Marley has a painfully boring storyline about how she is a Katy who tries to be a Gaga, but just can’t muster it (and also can’t muster letting her man Puck 2.0 get into her pants) it and ends up getting suspended for NOT WEARING A SEASHELL BIKINI during her Gaga performance because Mr. Schue is on crack. And then her boyfriend cheats on her with the bitchy new cheerleader Bree. And something happens where Becky talks about not giving out “handies” to Sam for some reason. And Sam flirts more with his lady love Nurse Whatshername and in the end Sue suspends ALL of the Glee club for wearing inappropriate pop star inspired outfits and Will gets pissed even though he pretty much juuuuust did the same thing to Marley.
Do Matt and Jane just get their scripts now and go WHAT THE FUCK?
AND THAT’S WHAT YOU MISSED ON GLEE WHILE YOU WERE NAPPING IN BETWEEN NYC SCENES.
Now let’s get to the good stuff. And yes the episode is redeemable only because of this:
And a lot of this LOLZ:
