Well, everyone’s back and it seems that the Glee club is still at the bottom of the social pyramid (not unlike Miss Santana is with her vine-ripened chest fruit).
Finn and Rachel are still together. Everyone thought Brittany went away on vacation this summer, but really she was getting lost in the sewers. (WHAT?) Tina dumps Artie to date Mike Chang’s abs. And Artie wants to get himself some abs so he convinces Finn to help him join the football team (WHAT?) Ken Tanaka had a nervous breakdown and has been replaced by Coach Beiste (pronounced Beast…it’s French!) who refers to herself in the third person, and as an animal, no less (PANTHER).
(Where is Emma?)
Budgets are cut so Sue and Schue are working together to try to oust the Beiste (played perfectly by Dot Jones. THE KNEE HIS!). Glee needs new recruits, so they bust out a Fame-feeling version of “Empire State of Mind.” Then Finn finds the new kid Sam, who, apparently doesn’t know how many tennis balls he can fit in his giant mouth, because he has never had any balls in his mouth BUT he CAN sing Billionaire, so Glee loves him. Rachel finds Filipina exchange student Sunshine Corazon (played by Charice) who is amazing and would make a great addition to Glee, but when Rachel fears her spotlight will be taken away, the self-absorbed, self-appointed Glee leader send poor Sunshine away to a crack house where they use her sheet music as toilet paper.
One of the highlights for me was Jacob Ben Israel’s (JewFro) opening interview montage…asking questions about Quinn’s baby, about Rachel being controlling AND about when she’s going to return to The Shire, about Schue’s partnership with Land’s End, about Schue’s RAPPING – “Did you know there’s a forum on my blog that’s begging you to stop rapping?” It was all good, good times for me.
If this is what we can expect from season 2, then I am ON BOARD and ready to go.
Just please, please, please MORE EMMA. Thanks.
