Goofs

When she is accused by Will Schuester of leaking the set list to the other schools, Sue Sylvester says that the accusation is a "libelous statement". Libel is written, slander is spoken; the correct term would be that it is a "slanderous statement". See more »

Quotes

Sue Sylvester: Shuester! Well played, sir. I underestimated you. Alright, heres what happens now. Im gonna head on down to my condo in boca, brown up a bit, get myself into fighting shape - then Im gonna return to this school even more hellbent on your destruction. Get ready for the ride of your life, Will Shuester; you are about to board the Sue Sylvester express. Destination: HORROR!
Will Schuester: I look forward to it, Sue.
Sue Sylvester: You know, you just woke a sleeping giant. Prepare to be crushed!

Shadow
8 January 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

10/10? Meaning this is the best there *can possibly be*? On basis of what? Make no mistake, this is a great episode, but it's far from *perfect*. Too many IMDb users write reviews from *highly* subjective viewpoint, and while they are useful in telling the average reader, what the reviewer likes, they could be more than plot summaries (there is a different update section for that) topped of with a few gushing praises.

So, in a nutshell: great plot and character development, good acting, laughs and drama, *but* Glee's main problem remains: the playback/attempts at lip sync performances are so out of sync it's *distracting*. The singers clearly are talented - why isn't there anyone on the production side making sure the vocals match the lip movements? If bands can put out live recordings with 100% audio/video sync, why can't Glee do it? Until then, we get just a shadow of Glee's full potential, "only" 8/10 at best - like this episode.
