Fox started this episode almost 15 minutes late, so consequently
my DVR missed the last 15 minutes! I'm surprised nobody else
mentioned this! At least Fox should advise Dish Network of
delayed starts so they could adjust their program guide accordingly!
Will have to either watch online or wait for a network re-run...

Before we rage against Marley for going straight to Jake after Ryder asked to reschedule their date, let's remember that this is largely Kitty's doing. I don't think Wallflower Marley (the alter-ego she chose for herself for their duet) would have done something like that, and Kitty looked shocked when Marley marched up to Jake and asked him out. Should she have asked him out? No, probably not. But I think saying that she's stringing them both along is somewhat premature. Right now, she's just not being exclusive, you know?

@Amie, I totally agree! Ryder had a legit reason for breaking the date off. Marley just came across as a total bitch for not understanding. The guy just found out he has dyslexia, he needs somebody supportive. Not somebody who's just going to go around and pick another boy the second one of them has something important come up and they can't place her first.
She's going to be awful girlfriend and I think she deserves neither Ryder nor Jake. I like them both too much, and I don't like Marley at all.

I think I agree with the part about enjoying a Glee episode after so long. I mean, they destroyed holding out for a hero and that's one of my favourite songs, but a few minutes later, I had forgotten how upset I was and I'd just moved on to enjoying the show.
I still don't think they handled the weight issue well. Jesus, woman, buy a damn scale.
I also don't appreciate how Marley's just stringing both of them along, especially now that they're (Jake and Ryder) friends.
Jake was very cute with Marley's mom, and I love how he could piece together the actual advice Puck gave, even when Puck said it in such a screwed up way. (I love Puck. It was so good to see him again!)
I'm so glad we have a new bromance!
I'm also very glad that there was no New York. It would have felt wrong.
But the one thing I hate more than anything is how they've completely sidelined the original glee members: Brittany, Tina, Artie are have no story arcs. Not cool. NOT cool.

I love this episode! The music numbers were great.

Blake Jenner as Ryder is a perfect fit. The writer did a much better job writing a character for him than Glee Project S1 winners. I hope they extend his 7 episode story arc. He deserves it big time!

@Amie & @lilangel--I think Rachel's tears were over more than just Brody possibly sleeping with Cassandra. She effectively left Finn, her high school sweetheart, to see what's out there with Brody and the thought that he could sleep with Cassandra, coupled with Cassandra's words, were why she was crying. I think they were over the realization that this isn't the life she necessarily imagined for herself and where does she go from there now. I guess I think she wasn't crying because Brody slept with someone else but because of the entire situation.

And YES YES YES! Blake Jenner was PERFECT. They picked him because he could act whereas the winner(s) from the first season of TGP were chosen because they were interesting people. HUUUUUUUGE difference.

@Amie: you think it's lame to cry when you think your love interest sleeps with someone else? waw, we are not living on the same planet. What was she supposed to do? be happy about the fact that he was doing her worst ennemy?

I thought this episode was wonderful. I loved the laughs ( Finn's coffee experience, his rain boots, fanny pack kit, sweater vests, Blam and Slaine, Sam as Bane in his jock strap) I could go on and on, and on and on. But I also loved the serious moments, the dyslexia, Jake and Ryder, etc. The silliness of the superhero theme was so light and funny. Love that Finn is growing up by helping the club, and not being afraid to ask for help. Frankly, although I like Unique, I did not miss him/her at all. However, I am looking forward to the NY story, so I am not one of those that want that to go away. I love Rachel Berry even with all that dark eyeshadow and false lashes. My favorite performance, though, was by far, the group number at the end. Many may wonder why Ryder is quickly becoming a leading man over the other Glee Project winners, and it is simple. Although all can SING well, Blake's acting in far superior to all the rest...he can handle the emotion, so they are giving him the story. Good for him; I bet they will keep him for a long, long, time.

Where the hell is Unique?... I still don't know if I like Marley's character because she's sooo manipulable...it makes her look like dumb

I'm also enjoying getting to know the new members of New Directions, and most of them I like very much. Unfortunately, the Kitty storyline is distracting me so much that by the end of the episode I couldn't remember much about the good parts because the bad parts had me so enraged.

I truly hope they resolve the Kitty/Marley bulimia story soon and appropriately. There are so many other ways for the two girls to have a rivalry than for one to convince the other to harm herself. Besides the fact that it makes Kitty a completely un-redeemable character, I thought Marley was smarter than that.
