Hey! It’s a Very Delayed Glee Post!

28 Nov

So, I know this is very very late, but I finally got around to watching the last episode of Glee (from the 15th) and I can’t not talk about the terrible, terrible clothing and hair.

First up, Kurt’s outfit during his confrontation with Sue. When I saw this, I literally burst out laughing and paused it to make sure I wasn’t having terrible clothing hallucinations. But no. It was real. Behold:

Kurt's face pretty much sums up my reaction to this one.

Then, he turned up in the choir room wearing a riding suit. An actual riding suit. As in to ride horses. But he was not about to ride horses. He was in school.

THE HAT YOU GUYS. THE HAT.

I don’t know if you can tell or not, but he is even wearing boots. KURT WHAT ARE YOU DOING STOP IT. Also, what in the world is on his tie? It looks like some sort of demon bunny/pumpkin hybrid thing. I don’t like it at all. I think it’s time for the wardrobe people to step away from the drugs.

But no horrible clothing can compare to the monstrosity that is Puck’s hair. Look at this. Just look at it.

AAAGGGGHHH

Who thought this was a good look. WHO. I think we’ve found the drug suppliers on the Glee set: the hair department. STOP IT YOU GUYS. I can’t even look at it.

However. There was one cracked out wardrobe moment in this episode that was a delight to behold:

This was for the Hall & Oates mash up, and it is perfect. I mean, look at this, you guys:

That is too much adorable to handle. Let’s have more of this, the delightfully awful, and less of the just plain old awful. Which really is good advice for the show’s writers, too. Considering the fact that my inner monologue during each episode has really become “This is stupid this is stupid this is stupid oh thank goodness a song this is stupid this is stupid this is stupid.” Oh, Glee. My precious, idiotic Glee. Why can’t I quit you?

Fringe: And Those We’ve Left Behind

12 Nov

So, I’m really confused after this episode as to what exactly is the timeline/universe situation this season. Because now with Peter clearly regarding Olivia as not “his” Olivia, and Olivia clearly agreeing with that assessment, and both of them saying that they hope he gets back to original recipe Olivia, it seems like this is another universe altogether, and our original characters are floating around out there in the original universe, probably wondering where the heck Peter has wandered off to. And that’s also supported by the fact that the credits are a different color this season (blue = original, red = alternate, black = future, amber = whatever this is). But at the same time, Peter is definitely acting like Walter is the same Walter and just needs to remember who he (Peter) is, plus we had the whole thing with the observers at the end of last season where they were all, “they don’t remember him/ how could they, he never existed” (which turned into he died when he was a kid, but whatever). So is this actually the same universe, just with an altered timeline that Peter has to fix? Or is it a totally separate universe and Peter has to find a way to get back to the real one? I’m leaning toward the altered timeline that Peter has to fix option, because while I do want the original, blueverse characters back, I don’t want this whole season to end with Peter being like “OK guys, check ya later, I’m going home!” after which we’ll never see any of these character iterations again, because that would make the whole season feel like a waste. If it ends up that they just have to regain their memories of him, that makes it more interesting because it reverts the characters back to who we really know them as, but also adds a twist because I would assume they’d still have some memory of their Peter-less lives, so that could change the show’s dynamic in an interesting way. I don’t know, I’m just going with it now, but I hope it becomes clear soon.

Except it obviously won’t be VERY soon because next week is the fall finale! I literally groaned when I heard that in the preview for the episode. It just came back and it’s going away already? This is so not cool, Fox! Not cool at all.

You guys. What is happening. Why is Peter wearing a wedding ring (see the bottom left and middle screen caps here http://screenfringe.tumblr.com/post/12489557602). Why can’t every day be Friday.

TV round up

3 Nov

So here’s the deal. School has gotten in the way of my television habit of late (stupid school!), leaving me little time to watch and little energy to form coherent thoughts afterward. So, instead of trying to play catch up and pull multiple posts from my exhausted brain, I am going to write one word reviews of each show I’ve managed to watch since my last post, summing up my core reaction to each. This is from the soul, you guys.

Chuck–Meh.
Downton Abbey–*Flail*
How I Met Your Mother–Sigh.
Glee–NO.
Parks and Recreation–Aww.

That was fun! Now I just have to catch up on the last three Modern Families and the last three Parenthoods basically the last month of Daily Shows and a whole season of The Office…

Also, I’m going out of town this weekend and will be without access to my computer or a television so I’m going to have to wait until Sunday to see Fringe. This is so not cool.
