Weekly Gleek! The Brittana Sex Tape Files: Making Cats Emptying Dishwashers Look Sexy Since 2012

With graduation and May Sweeps looming, Glee is getting back to what they have always done best: being incredibly silly, and having a blast introducing Middle America to new flavors of gay every week. And while I will definitely not be downloading any of the songs from this week, there’s no question that this episode was SOLID GOLD. See what I did there? It’s a disco joke. You might not get it if you’re under 40. I’m the same age as the actors who play Will and Emma, and my only real memories of disco are this:

 

I can totally get behind the shiny-floor dance moves, but there’s something about a big beefy dude singing in a super-high-pitched voice that just does not work for me; unless he’s in drag, of course. But we’ll get to that soon enough, bois & grrlz! If you start to get overexcited thinking about Glee’s first official drag queen, just take a few deep breaths while repeating “what would Unique do?” three times, and you’ll be all right.

OK, so. This week’s episode opens with a musical number starring Blaine and his sweet-ass moves, backed up by the A-team of dance that is Brittany and Mike Chang. I probably don’t say this enough, but it’s always awesome to see Blaine being such a versatile leading man and sex symbol—equally beloved by girls and gays everywhere. He can be the hunky male lead, but he can also sing Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” un-ironically. I think he’s my favorite non-original cast member. Great indeed was the day he warbled into our lives!

At the end of the number, the trio explains to Mr. Schue that they did it ‘cuz the theme for Nationals this year is “vintage,” and what could be more vintage than disco? (Plenty of things, but let’s not dwell—at least they’re not doing original songs again). Schue of course loves the idea, and immediately has a flashback to his own high school glee days spent rockin’ the disco comeback era (which, for the record, I do not remember ever happening in the 90’s…but maybe it was a Midwest thing?). Schue then gets a nice interior monologue where

Well, except that they didn't

Well, except that they didn't kiss and make up, because apparently the Brittana kissing was only for one episode....

right???

that pissed me off too. there was so much else going on that I kind of maxed out on feelings at some point; but yeah, that was a real WTF moment, right? they can have a sex tape, but they can't kiss when they make up?

To be fair, I think a hug was

To be fair, I think a hug was actually more appropriate for the moment (the whole I believe in you thing and all), but it's the idea of it that annoys me. I don't get the impression that we'll see much of them kissing in the future. :-/
