Glee Michael Jackson Episode
February 1, 2012 by staff
Glee Michael Jackson Episode, We return from “Glee’s” winter hiatus and …. yeah. It was an episode, and the music was fine and things happened in the plot, but there really wasn’t much to get excited about in “Yes/No” since we pretty much knew the answer to the big proposal question, at least the one that the story was structured around.
More songs, more fantasy, less talking and less adults. These principles applied to the basic structure of “Glee” result in the best episodes of the franchise, and Michael Jackson hit all the notes. The adults stay out of it except in direct support of the kids, the emotional speeches were bookends to musical numbers, the musical numbers themselves were strong, fantastical and poignant to the story. Even as the real world creeps closer and closer to the Michael Jackson fantasy land of McKinley, the New Directions are finding ways to overcome.
We begin with the former Troubletones lamenting to Kurt and Blaine that they missed their chance to perform Michael Jackson in competition, and in a brilliant bit of marketing synergy Blaine manages to promote the Michael Jackson Cirque tour, and kick off the episode with “Wanna Be Starting Something.” Blaine crotch-grabs his way through the McKinley halls, rallies the troops in the library and then they all end up on stage in various versions of MJ costumes, looking fabulous. Meanwhile, Finn has been patiently waiting 3 days for Rachel to make a decision about his desperate proposal last episode. Rachel claims to want to marry Finn someday, but that she’s still planning on New York, while Finn explains that this engagement would be a way to keep them together and make their relationship more solid. Rachel rightly calls him out on that being a little crazy, but it is crazy in a very specifically high school way where heightened emotion and the fear of change leads to these sorts of rash decisions. Finn stalls her and tells her to think some more.
Over at the Lima Bean, discussion turns back to Michael Jackson memories — even though the whole discussion should be about Kurt’s fabulous gloves. Evil Sebastian shows up and proclaims that the New Directions’ plans are foiled because Warblers have first slot at Regionals and will be performing Michael Jackson as well, since Blaine accidentally tipped him off on their set list. Santana tries to take Sebastian down a peg but he quips back more racist, classist and meaner than Glee’s villains normally act. Basically, we’re quickly learning Sebastian is a new type of Glee villain. He’s even changed the rules in the Warblers, serving as their captain, the days of the council and their fair and proper ways long gone.
Of course the club is in distress, despite Blaine reminding them all that they have pulled off last minute set lists before, and they still have plenty of time by Glee standards to throw something new together.
