They made a huge mistake casting Artie. The kid that plays him should be on his feet. His dancing is terrific.
I was really looking forwad to the MJ episode (child of the 80's here!), but I hate to admit I didn't love it. It was another one of the "let's write an episode around the songs" instead of "lets incorporate songs into the episode". I'm not quite sure, but there was something lacking. I did like that Artie got to get up and dance, but I'm not sure I had ever heard that MJ song before, nor was I a big fan after I heard it tonight. Can't quite put my finger on it, but maybe coming off the Emma/Will proposal episode (which I LOVED), this one just seemed kind of meh.
I was so looking forward to this episode and it fell flat for me. I really like a lot of MJ songs, but this episode just didn't do them justice. I wish they would go back to writing stories surrounded by songs. This season has just been hit and miss for me.
I am a HUGE MJ fan and I, for one, loved it. I was crying and laughing all thru the episode. When I heard it was all MJ songs, and a lot of them, I kinda figured the story wouldnt move forward TOO much. Hopefully next week we'll get back to the great stuff.
my problem was they use the meh michael jackson songs... where's Billy Jean? Thriller? Beat It? PYT? etc. Those are iconic MJ songs.
they have already done some MJ songs, such as PYT and Thriller (tho it was in a mash up) so thats why they didnt do them again.
