We’ve all heard of Hollywood’s infamous A-List, but have you ever heard of a G-List? In last night’s episode of Glee we met a little friend who decided to come in and cause some dramz. His name was the G-List, or “Glist”. The Glist, which was anonymously made and posted all over the school, ranked McKinley’s Glee Club members using promiscuity as it’s base, as Sue Sylvester said. I like the way Puck put it better – “How badass you are.” Still with me? Great! Read my verdict on this episode after the jump!
So, this “Glist.” The rankings made it impossible to figure out who the creator of said list was because most of the Glee Club were disappointed with their rankings. How did they go about changing their rankings? Making a name for themselves and getting a badass reputation. Why? Because as Quinn said, “A bad reputation is better than no reputation.”
A few of the Glee kids decided to leak Sue’s video of her dancing to Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” and also by causing a major, very serious Glee riot in the library. Ooooooh, so badass.
Anyways, both of these ideas BACKFIRED. Olivia ended up calling up Sue and asking her to make a re-make of the “Physical” music video, giving Sue even more supahfame. The lovely old librarian asked the Glee kids to perform at her church next Sunday. Definitely not the reaction they wanted, I’m sure. Then, of course, Rachel decided to be all badass and such and make her weekly Glee project video with not one, not two, but three Glee boys. Very hot ones at that. Good on ya, Rach. But, unfortunately or (fortunately?), Rachel can’t pull off the whole polygamy/infidelity thing and lost her boyfriend Jessie, as well as her attempts at relationships with Puck & Finn. BACKFIRE.
Lastly, Emma decided to be a little too badass and call out Will on all of his infidelities, which was hi-larious, cute, and slightly scary all at the same time. Just a little weird seeing her all heated. This clearly didn’t work and she just embarrassed herself. BACKFIRE.
So, let’s look at this. Three backfires. Have we learned our lesson, kids? Don’t try to climb up the social ladder, because you will probably fall off and end up even farther away than you were before.
Although not very relevant, the setlist was very interesting tonight. We basically heard some very bad 50’s, 80’s and 90’s music that will still remain bad. Usually, all the songs Glee covers are insta-hits again, but I have a feeling that only happens for songs that were good at one point, dontcha think? Basically, I was pretty disappointed with the songs this week, probably because I was an early 90’s kid, and listened to Spice Girls & Backstreet Boys growing up.
There were some pretty funny quotes in this episode, and I think they’re worth posing.
Sue: Some people like to film themselves getting physical with their partner. I happen to enjoy revisiting the impeccable form of my jazzercise routines.
Artie: I’m kind of getting cold feet.
Brittany: Can you even feel your feet?
Rachel: Rachel Berry is about to get sexual promiscuous.
Jesse: This song should be arrested for the crime of sucking.
Brittany: I had a cold and I took all my antibiotics at the same time and I forgot how to leave.Tweet
