Our Favorite Episodes

Follow TroutyMouthBlog on Twitter
Everyone loves Glee. If they say they don't, they are lying. Season 2 has been great so far, and it seems to just be getting better and better. In fact, of our all time favorite episodes, the last three have made the list. Let's break it down:

Episode 2x14 "Blame It on the Alcohol"
What's not to love about this episode? This is the episode where I decided I have to be friends with these people.

First of all, the Rachel Berry House Party Trainwreck Extravaganza: Priceless! I love that she handed out drink tickets for wine coolers. Who does that? Only Rachel Berry. Plus, what was she wearing? Fits her rigid-ness perfectly.

Then the party itself. I thought the breakdown of the drunk patterns the girls fall into was hysterical. Weepy girl drunk: Santana. Hilarious, especially when she sobbed on stage when Mr. Schue said "Alcohol poisoning kills over 400 people per year." Hilarious, Santana, hilarious. Angry girl drunks: Quinn and Zizes. You know we love us some Zizes over here at Trouty Mouth (And who wouldn't? We, too, spell woman Z-I-Z-E-S). When she said to Puck, "Who told you that haircut was cool? Geronimo?" I died from laughing so hard. Girl who turns into a stripper drunk: Brittany. What I loved so much about that was that Artie was throwing money at her like he was a pimp. Shoot. Artie is a []D[][]V[][]D!

Let's move on. Beiste: "You ain't lived til you see me in a cowboy haaaaat! Ba Der Der!" Let's just say, Coach Beiste. I've lived, and I am so glad to have lived. Will Schuester: You're creepy when you drink. It's probably a good idea you've decided to stop drinking, because we can't take anymore "Heeeeeeey there, Sexy Lady" drunk dials.

Last, but not least, the "Key 'dollar sign' ha" performance. Heather Morris: you are a god. Seriously. The dancing was flawless, and the singing was spectacular. They couldn't have done it any better.

Episode 2x15 "Sexy"
Two words: Gwyneth Paltrow. I love Holly Holliday's character. To be honest, I didn't know I would be such a huge fan of Gwyn (we're on a first name basis now), but I have come full circle, and because of Glee, Gwyneth has earned some major cred in my books!

The hilarity of Emma being a virgin is pure gold... and the fact that she's so naive. For instance, the "Afternoon Delight" performance. There is really no other way to explain it except golden, especially when she tells Rachel, "Afternoon Delight is a pie. It's made with coconut, pineapple, and marshmallow fluff!" I also loved when she said she was afraid of the hose monster, and when she said that "Sex is not for kids and it's not for adults!"

Even though this episode was totally entertaining from the hysterical one-liners, it was nice to see the serious side in this episode. Mostly because we're huge Santana fans over here at Trouty Mouth (as if you didn't know), and it was cool to see her vulnerable side. Now we'll express our thoughts on the Santittany saga later, but you do have to feel bad for Santana. And it was kinda nice to see her so vulnerable, as opposed to her typical "bitch" self (even though we still saw some of that, and it was just as awesome). Damn emotions. Not to mention, Glee's rendition of Landslide was exceptional. From what I read, even Stevie Nicks was impressed when she visited the set.

Episode 2x16 "Original Song"
Now we come full circle to the Original Song episode. While Trouty Mouth was clearly my favorite of the original songs, I definitely loved every single one of them. This reminds me of where my love for Glee started. You really see the vocal range of everyone in this episode, especially Rachel. Lea Michele obviously has a gorgeous voice, but in Get it Right, she gave me goosebumps. I also think that Loser Like Me was the perfect anthem for the Glee club. My favorite part? Sue's reaction to the line that "All of the dirt you’ve been throwin’ my way". Clearly, a response to the dirt she threw it Brittana's lockers.

Even though this episode wasn't as witty (except with Trouty Mouth, of course) as the other two, it was still a top favorite. It brings back the old Glee feeling that we all love so much.

Oh.Em.Glee, after typing this lengthy post, I just might have to go watch all three of them again for the 18th time. It will be interesting to see if they can continue to make the episodes following, just as good. Ha. Who are we kidding, it's Glee! We know they'll be just as good!

I'm sure Whitney would agree with my posts, but if there's any dispute, or anything I forgot to mention, by all means girrrrl. Shout out for making TM look purty, homie!

Chat soon! Have a Glee-worthy day! Dig it!
