Goofs

Toward the end of Rachel's solo at sectionals, the rest of the group comes on stage. In the close-up, you can clearly see Finn and Puck cross paths and stop behind her. Then, in the wide shot, the boys are still walking by Rachel at the front of the stage. See more »

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.
