Iron fist of Chris/ Kurt swooped everyone's heart!!!
3 July 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

To be honest, watching the promos of Glee didn't tingle my televisions-buds. Additionally, the idea of Chris's character playing an optimistic, innocuous, cheerful and open-minded gay character made the show seem a stereotype. Like its a prerequisite for every musical to employ a gay singer who is beleaguered and bullied by his colleagues/classmates. But in Glee, oh no, nothing of this sort happens. Even though Kurt is still looked upon as an outcast at times, the creators has deftly lifted Kurt's character from ending in the dreaded abyss of stereotypes.

Kurt still his finicky about cleanliness and cosmetics but his character is quirky and dimensional. And in this episode, in a matter of few minutes, he puts of a great performance, adroitly veering his performance throughout the show, firstly shaking a leg to "Single Ladies" and then coming out to his father, who isn't very surprised and accepts his decision.

Sue, meanwhile, contrives a very devious plot to disband Glee club by conniving with Sandy Ryerson. This storyline seemed to be a little watered down and distracting but I still have yet to see the future episodes, so I can't infer. Sue is so cocky and egoistic that she tries her very best to ensure she wins accolades, even if it requires downing her own colleagues. For a moment, I wanted the counselor to get up and smack her vile and virile butt!!

Rachel, on the other hand, seems to be distancing from Glee club, after she sees hopes of becoming the next Celine Dion. She has acted well too, especially in the beginning, when she was pleading Will, or rather coaxing him to select her for the leading part.

The pregnancy angle seems to be a precursor for a disastrous marriage. Will's wife shamelessly decides to persuade Quinn into giving her her baby. One just has to wait and watch.....

The story moved at breakneck speed with just a few songs scattered in between. But its big, voluminous and extremely enjoyable. 7 out of 10.
