Transcript: Hey Gleeks, this is Alex from SideReel, and as usual I'm here to talk about last night's episode of Glee. Now last night was the annual Sectionals episode, so you know what that means - before we go any further, this is your official spoiler alert.
So last night's episode was full of surprises... For one, Trouty Mouth Evans is apparently an underage stripper named White Chocolate, Rachel Berry did NOT find a way to sneak on stage and perform for Sectionals, and... New Directions got first place. Now, you all probably think I hate the New Directions based on my previous reviews... and that's not true. I'm a huge Glee fan, and ultimately I've got their back...I just don't think they deserved to win Sectionals this time around. Personally none of the groups' performances really 'wowed' me like they have in past seasons' sectionals.. but I honestly thought the Troubletone's Survivor mashup was just a bit cleaner and more entertaining than the others. And why was the New Directions performance like 15 minutes long? Every time I thought it was over the lights would come back on and they'd just keep going, and not even Sam's hip thrusting could make it more interesting for me. All I kept thinking the whole time was 'y'all are lucky the Warblers aren't here, cuz they probably woulda kicked all y'alls asses." I'm sorry. But as usual, feel free to disagree with me - sound off in the comments with your take on how Sectionals went down... and I'll see you next time!
