Last night's episode of Glee rocked my socks off. Literally. I am sock-less. Here's why...
1. More Kurt!
As always, Chris Colfer delivered a brilliantly nuanced and emotionally powerful performance. Mike O'Malley (as Kurt's dad) and Romy Rosemont (as Finn's mom) really brought up the level of the room as well. I was really pleased with the whole Hummel-Hudson family drama. Especially the pace - still speedy, but less of the whiplash feeling of previous episodes.
2. More Mercedes!
Yes, her whole story line this episode was a little After-school Special. Still, it kind of worked. The way she hijacked the pep rally... AMAZING. Honestly, tears in my eyes. And how it turned around for Sue's benefit - saw it coming, but it was brilliant.
3. More Kristin Chenoweth!
One question - why isn't she in every episode?!? Okay, maybe that's a bit of hyperbole - KC episodes are great partially because they're rare. But just like more experienced actors seem to improve the overall acting, KC turns up the music to 11. Every single time.
In conclusion: more like this, please. IMHO, the less said about Rachel and What's-His-Eventual-Traitor-Face, the better.
