Did You Know?

In this episode, Kurt worries that he won't get the role of Tony in West Side Story because he is not "masculine-acting" enough. Larry Kert, the actor who played the role of Tony in the original Broadway production of West Side Story, was (like Kurt) gay, and according to Arthur Laurents' autobiography, the show's director/choreographer Jerome Robbins frequently derided Kert in front of the whole cast and crew for being too effeminate (despite the fact that Robbins, along with West Side's book writer Laurents, composer Leonard Bernstein, and lyricist Stephen Sondheim were also all gay).See more »

Gayest episode yet., 28 September 2011
Author: wichio from Guatemala

Glee has created some kind of "Gay reputation", which has got us all male fans saying: "It's not that gay", supporting our argument with performances from Aerosmith, ACDC, Kiss, Bon Jovi, Usher, Journey, etc.

But if some guy ever said "Ok, if it's not that gay, I'll give it a shot", and tuned "I am Unicorn" as his first Glee episode, he would definitely prove us wrong and never watch it again.

For starters the plot uses a lot of gay content, having the effeminate Kurt Hummel, trying to act manly to get the lead in McKinley High production of "The West Side Story". Plus Brittany Pierce helping him with his senior class president campaign mostly based on unicorns and rainbows.

Also, the episode futures nothing but Broadway musical songs, which, let's face it, it's not the reason most people watch the show. With Characters like Rachel Berry, Kurt Hummel, April Rhodes, and Will Schuester, Broadway has taken a huge part on the show. But most people who watch the show don't know a lot about Broadway musicals, and even less people have actually seen one.

We have heard Broadway songs before in the show, which for a lot of people wasn't disturbing at all, since, not only did the cast gave a great performance, but after that Broadway song came worldwide favorite. This was not the case in this episode. The performances were good, but Broadway after Broadway turned boring and left us wanting more. Especially being only the second episode of the third season, (and the first one also featuring a lot of Broadway musical numbers. Better ones though.) it makes us wonder if the season will ever get any better, or is it gonna shub Broadway deep into our ears.

Anyways the third episode will feature some Beyonce and Coldplay which will turn it a little more interesting, but we will still be hearing a lot from "The West Side Story".

Which brings me to my third point. Looks like the whole third season is heading towards the Glee cast doing "The West Side Story", which is turning very annoying, since a lot of people (including myself) believe TWSS is not that good of a musical and the writers could have picked a better one. Some also say TWSS storyline is already long enough, and one episode would have been enough. (Like the Rocky Horror Picture Show episode.)

However they're soon gonna run out of WSS songs to fill their episodes and when they do, I hope we get to listen a lot of our favorites we haven't heard yet.

Well musically speaking: The show really left me wanting more.
