A Terri-less Glee is a Good Glee.

Tonight's episode of Glee was full of slushies, wedding dresses, and that song from My Fair Lady.

Speaking of which, I can't get that dang song out of my head. "I could've daaanced all niiight..."

Anywhosers. Thumbs up to:

1) Puck. Dude can sing. Not only that, but he is a DEAD RINGER for Robbie Williams, the yummiest singer on the planet. I am in love with Puck/Robbie.
2) Emma's wedding dress. So pretty.
3) Lack of Terri. Honestly, this show does not need her at all. Glee could've started out with Will as a heartbroken widower whose wife just died tragically in a car crash and Emma helping him learn love again. Ken could be all, "Marry me, Emma," and Will could be all, "I'm not ready to move on," and then Emma could be all, "All right, Ken, I'll marry you," and then at the altar, right before Emma says "I do," Will could come running in and do a song and dance number (I suggest "(I've Had) The Time of My Life") and lift Emma up and propose to her and maybe the fall finale could end with Emma's panicked, indecisive eyes because she's a kind person and doesn't want to break Ken's heart despite her feelings for...Where was I going with this? Oh, right. We don't need Terri.
4) Finn standing up to Coach Ken with a great speech that invoked Thomas Jefferson and the kid from Terminator.

Speaking of Coach Ken--am I the only one suddenly feeling AWFUL for the guy and starting to root for him? I'm not saying he should get with Emma--they are totally wrong for each other--but the least Emma and Will could do is not prance around together all over the place making eyes at each other. Let's give Ken some requited love. Or at least a little respect!

From the promos following the episode, it looks like Glee is going on a short hiatus until November sweeps. I don't know what I will do with the next few Glee-less Wednesday nights.

Oh, wait.

Of course.

Law & Order: SVU, do we have a date?


  1. I couldn't agree with you more! Glee without the Terri baby drama is even more delightful. It was getting too heavy the past few episodes - and this one was so fun with all of those dance numbers for Will.

    Random thought: whenever I hear Taylor Swift's "You Belong with Me" on the radio, I can't help but think that it would be *too* perfect for Rachel to sing that to Finn. But I'm guessing there'd be some rights issues with incorporating a song that's so current. Sigh.

  2. Mel--I love that Taylor Swift song, and that would be a great choice for a Rachel ode to Finn. I think if they end up deciding to sing that song, say, in the next few weeks, by the time the episode actually airs, the song'll be not so current anymore, so it'll work.

    Did you hear that Madonna is allowing Glee to sing any song(s) they want of hers? She must be a huge fan of the show! Or she's a smart businesslady. :)

  3. Awesome, and awesomer! In that case I'm looking forward to "Like a Prayer"!
