      I loved the juxtaposition of Santana singing “A Boy Like That” + Sebastian/Blaine getting to know each other. Fantastic.

      WOW… and I thought I was the only one that hated the show…

      That show set the Gay (since there were no LBT’s) movement back 10 years… it was an embarrassment.
      The whole bar scene sucked… that was the ugliest bar with the ugliest men I have ever seen. But I tell u what… for a small town gay bar on a wednesday night it was busy… there are gay bars in big cities that do not get half that crowd on a friday let alone a wednesday.
      The Drag Queens of the world should file suit…
      The bar was loaded with predators
      A bunch of 17 yo’s getting in the bar… cut me a break.

      as was stated… about Karofsky… to suggest that the only place he can find friends is at a bar is crazy. Yes it is hard to come out in High School… But this plot sucks.

      I think the most bazaar parts dealt with Artie… Him giving sex advise to a teacher??? plus telling to students to go have sex???

      This will be the last year for Glee… It is easy to see why ratings are down

      It would have been nice if every single time they kissed, that Kurt didn’t push Blaine away or break the kiss.

      I’m sorry, but I still get zero chemistry between those two. Oddly enough I felt more chemistry between Kurt and his former bully in the 45 seconds they were on screen together than I get from Kurt and Blaine.

      Also, maybe I’m wrong…but yes, we ALL get that Kurt is gay, and yes we all get that Kurt is somewhat feminine….but…a dewy meadow strewn with Lilac? Really? I wasn’t aware that Kurt was a 45 year old women board with her marriage reading a tacky romance novel.

      “throw us a bone” How old are you? While the actors may be older than the characters they’re playing, the show is still set in high school. Way to perpetuate a stereotype, Queerty, while chastising those meth ads in a latter post.

      Shorter Queerty:

      Male adults complaining about the lack of sexual content between gay male high-school age characters: Okay.

      Male adult preying on high-school age male in ad campaign against meth use: Not okay.

      @fredo777:

      When a Reviewer like a show that say positive things… The person who wrote this said many negative things,,, I will just cut and paste a few…

      apparently had sex last night in the episode

      We say “apparently” because we can’t in good faith swear to you that the deed was done.

      we couldn’t help but hope that Ryan Murphy and Co. might throw us a bone, if you will. But what we got was milder than warm milk.

      Then the Warblers, Blaine’s old fairly flamboyant a cappella group, pops up to sing “Uptown Girl” in matching jackets and ties, as if it would balance things out with a classic ode to heterosexual attraction.

      Blaine and Kurt reunite in the hallway a bit later to talk about being adventurous, and Kurt reveals that he once wanted to “have relations on a dewy meadow of lilac with Taylor Lautner before he gets fat.”
      Cheers to that, girlfriend. Cheers to that. (WOW… SOMETHING THE REVIEWER LIKES)

      we just worry that a 17-year-old who only feels accepted at a bar might be headed for some alcohol-dependency issues…. (I AGREE!!)

      the kids perform West Side Story, with Rachel as Maria, Blaine as Tony and a rousing rendition of “America” with accents that are only slightly offensive.

      etc.
      etc.
      etc.

      If the reviewer like the show he should have said more positives and less negativies

      I, personally, think they did a great job presenting it to a young audience. It’s in the 8:00 hour with millions of tweens and teens watching. It’s not necessary to exude any more sexuality than they did. They smothered it in romance, which is EXACTLY what kids that age can digest. I’m glad they confronted this subject and did it gracefully. Kids aren’t dumb…if they want sex, they’ll find porn.

      Nice Job, Glee!!

      I liked the episode. Of course it was a disappointment that it was hyped up to be this controversial, sexed up, goodbye to virginity theme- but in the end, I thought it was sweet. Not an “Ooooooh” but an “Awwwww.”

      I can’t wait for the Rumor Has It/Someone Like You mashup next week. Back when Gwyneth took a $h!+ on Turning Tables, then Rachel/Jonathan butchered Rolling In The Deep, I said “No one should cover Adele…except maybe Santana.” I think she’ll do it well :)

      If I hadn’t know they were supposed to have sex this episode I don’t think I would have realized that did from what I saw. That goes for both couples. And why were all the drag queens from the 80s? The best part was Kurt and his bully interacting as usual.

      @Pip: Blaine is just generally creepy, imho. And per a previous astute comment re the lack of chemistry between Kurt and Blaine, maybe it’s because Kurt is such a generally off-putting little screechy gay, and Blaine is played by a straight guy. In any case, the sexual tension is like, not.

      The episode. They gave negative (+ positive, btw) comments about the episode, not the entire show. When you said that you apparently weren’t the only one who hated this show, it kind of insinuated that the author hated the show Glee in general.

      I am not generally a big fan of the show as I don’t think that it is written or paced well. But regardless, I thought that this was an amazing episode. Well written, well acted, and with the enjoyable twist of a love triangle. And BTW, the bar is supposed to be underwhelming, as they all live in Ohio. The only thing I didn’t care for was the presence of drag queens. They didn’t add anything to the story and made the bar, and by extension, our 2 protagonists a bit freakish.

      God only knows what show “Evanb” is watching, but Criss and Colfer have great chemistry. And Criss comes to the role with a passion that was sorely lacking in other straight actors playing gay roles. Evanb, if you think Darren Criss is “creepy” then be prepared to live your life forever alone, since your standards are completely out of whack.

      Remember the ambivalence of the second rate actor who played the ridiculously unrealistic gay character in Dawson’s Creek? That clown was never comfortable playing that character and even felt the need to denounce his own on-screen kiss with another male. Contrast that with Darren Criss, who not only looks comfortable embracing Colfer in bed, but makes you look forward to seeing what happens next (even if the show doesn’t give us that privilege).

      Eventually, this show will fade as does everything on TV. But there is no question that this show has made history and has raised the bar for the portrayal of gay people, and in particular gay teens.

      Glee is aimed at a young audience not jaded gay men…..like me! The point of the montage between Rachel/Finn/ Kurt/Blaine was to put two gay teens 1st sexual experience(at least with each other) on an equal footing as two hetero teens; not to make some exploitative sex scene. This is a hugh deal. Do people not understand we just had 2 gay teenagers do it on primetime tv and given equal treatment! It was awesome!

      I’m a 15 year old gay teen, and let me just say that for the demographic this episode is aimed at, i.e ME and other teens, this was more than enough. Even seeing blaine and kurt kiss, TWICE, in one episode, when they haven’t kissed since way back in season 2, was more than enough. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not exactly sheltered, i’ve seen much more graphic scenes than kissing, as has any teenage male, but to us teenagers, this episode, minus the icky pushy blaine part, was perfect, adorable, incredibly cute, and BLAINE LOOKED SO HOT DANCING :)

      I think it is hilarious how sanitized it ended up compared to all the hype. It sort of reminded me of their alcohol awareness episode, in that the plot made no sense in order for the author to push their POV.

      from Andrew Sullivan.

      Alyssa Rosenberg analyzes the milestone:

      “The show was very careful to equate Kurt and Blaine and Rachel and Finn, shooting both couples in essentially similar positions of repose, clasping hands the same way, and similarly clothed. In a way, I think it’s more useful to make the couples as similar as possible, rather than focusing on the mechanical differences between the way they’re going to get down. Given that conservative stereotypes about gay men in particular focus on the idea that gay people are promiscuous and emotionally detached, TENDERNESS IS MORE CONFRONTATIONAL TO THOSE BELIEFS THAN ACTUALLY SHOOTING A SEX SCENE.”

      I cracked up at the end because I pictured the very last half-second of screentime to flash from Blaine & Kurt (‘Blurt?’) doing their very G-rated clothed cuddle to just the raunchiest, porniest gay sex seen ever snuck into broadcast television. Like, Kurt’s knees over Blaine’s shoulders, Blaine pounding away, screaming, sweating, pictures falling off the wall, headboard smoking– but only for such a split second, so it hits the audience like a sucker-punch from a ninja.

      @ian : Yes! You (and the almost-always spot on Alyssa Rosenbeg) nailed why the episode broke ground on US network TV: it’ s the affection and tenderness that frightens the right wingers. Two guys ‘in love’ doing what people do when they feel that way; nothing salacious or tawdry. And no santorum in sight!

      Sorry, it was hardly an invitation, that scene was borderline attempted rape, and frankly, beyond offensive. So Kurt sleeps with some guy less than 24 hours after he gets him jealous, humiliates him, screams at him, and violently tries to have sex with him in the back of a car? The writing is so bad! Terrible. If the goal was to have teens have no standards, objectify themselves, and lower their self esteem, congratulations, success! That line Rachel had about giving Finn something she could never give anyone else… loathsome. I normally like the show, but what tasteless trash. So bad this week! And if you watch shows for explicitly sexual material, sorry, but buy romance novels or something, but stories should have substance and a goal to make a change, and really, this won’t inspire positive change. The message was belittle your partner into having sex, and for audiences, make them feel their virginity is way more important than it actually is. Awful…

      im not gay but i do have gay friends of both types promiscuos and normal, and i found this episode extremely well executed. it show a promiscuos gay teen(bad obviously) and a loving gay couple(good) and even when the temptation appeared the good prevailed. im not a great fan of the show or a glee fanatic in anyway but i find the subtletly in both “sex scenes” to be appropiate.
      i dont find pleasure in watching two guys have sex, and lets not forget it’s an 8:00 pm show that is watched by kids. the only problem is that it wasnt really clear what happened, it looked like a cuddle to me on both finn/rachel and blaine/kurt they could have been more explicit without pushing a lot of boundaries like showing rachel hugging finn from the top without the bra or something like that. nothing too weird or “sexual” just to get the message across.

      if you wanted more maybe you should just watch porn or something.
      for all i care i hope the gay thing is kinda over, they just burn it too much over the last season and this one. we got it, kurt is gay, do you need to keep repeating that every episode. hope this “triangle” brings some drama to this whole relationship. coz ive seen it happen IRL and its not pretty. lots of icecream and revenge, two things i like

      The only thing I would have liked to see is Blaine discussing protection the way Finn and Rachel did…. because It should be very important for Ryan Murphy to broadcast the fact that GAY TEENS need to use protection just as much as straight teens

      Comments like this are why there are still people that do not take rape allegations seriously.

      Boarderline attempted rape? You need to get over your issues. Violently? You sound like one of those crazy girls in college running around screaming that all men are rapists.

      Hey, “Glee” isn’t “Queer As Folk”.

      For their audience, and for squemish parents, I thought that the entire episode was done well.

      Ok, they didn’t show full blown, gay-boy ass fucking, but I’m not sure I wanted to see Chris do that anyways. Especially not in a musical.

      I thought that overall, it was handled incredibly delicately and sweetly, but yeah, it was a little bit on the tame side. Come on, not even a kiss at the end there?? Would’ve liked to see Colfer show a bit more skin too :)))) He’s gorgeous, not sure why the show tries to tell me he’s not.

      How unrealistic (and icky) do they dress the gays on this show? I’m gay and it just creeps me out; I can’t imagine how it turns-off straights.

      The gays are so bowtied, pinked, short-panted, ladies clothing wearing and makeuped, that I don’t want straights seeing it. Where are the real gays on this show? An occasional flair is appreciated, a constant flair is blinding.

      My first time with my man I’d never heard of this “top” or “bottom” bullshit. We just frotted, kissed, touched each others dicks. I hate all this queer cliquey bullshit. It makes gay into some kind of fucking interest group with rules and regulations in order to fit in. I like men, I don’t need a fucking rule book to do that and anal isn’t the only way to have sex. As for top and bottom, we do both, among lots of other sexual exploration. It’s time for gay to start looking like an actual sexual preference and not a subculture.
