Wow, I guess I'm in the minority but I thought a lot of it was great. Glee Britney rocked. Her one-liners and dancing are just incredible. Her singing was good but I think I was a little distracted with all the hair-flinging. (She kept making me think of her hairology comment.) Popstar Britney looked old. She looked best when she wore those glasses to cover her tired-looking eyes. DH even made a comment on how old she looked.
I can't remember which song Lea/Rachel sang (mainly b/c I made my brain shut off b/c it was too painful!) but it sounded AWFUL!! All I could think was I wonder if Britney was there when she filmed it. Bad, bad, bad.
And Mr. Walking Hormone who was caught by Sue -- that was just WAY too much. Even I, who am so not a prude, was covering my eyes while he was in the bleachers. They went way too over the top with him. :nono
And let's not forget John Stamos. I'm SOOO glad to see him back in comedy. ER was too serious for him. I can see him being a lot of fun on Glee...
Harmony2000, I know what you mean about wanting Rachel to have a friend but then I realized that she's meant to represent the majority of single children (MOST, not ALL!). Those that I know who are only children and are older really don't know how to play well with others. It's all about me, me, me without taking others into consideration. Sadly, I think Rachel's character is meant to cover that group of people.
I'm so bummed we didn't get to see the previews. It cut out during Rachel's song and then the DVR switched to the next show so we lost the station. I hope it'll be posted somewhere!
