Flavors that don't go together - pickles and cranberry-pomegranate juice.

There aren't many Marvel female characters that I'm a fan of.

Elektra (Let's pretend that she never appeared in those two movies.) as envisioned by Frank Miller ( before he did Batman, and Sin City, etc. ), and the Black Widow pre-Iron Man II. Scarlett Johansson doesn't do a bad job as the Black Widow ( Certainly much better than Jennifer Garner as Elektra) but IMO she just doesn't have the "deadly/sexy presence" of the comicbook original. And Emma Peel looked much better in a catsuit... Oh wait, that was a completely different Avengers, sorry.

No, really?

Raise your hand if you're surprised at what happened during Rachel's NYADA audition.

Me neither.

This is Glee we're talking about. Where only Kurt and Finn are allowed to succeed and "The Girls" ( Rachel, Quinn, and Santana ) are there only to make Furt (aka Finn and Kurt ) look like sensitive, cool guys. One would almost think that a certain show runner hates women who can succeed on their own without the "poor little mens" to show them the way.

Nah... Couldn't be true.

Oh well... We'll always have fan fiction and Faberry and Pezberry. And a Rachel that isn't Finn's doormat (Maybe she'll go to Juilliard or some other school in NYC.) and a powerful Out and Proud Santana (lawyer, politician?) and Our Girl Quinn can finally become her own person.

For a more nuanced critique (like always) that covers all the plot threads in this episode - check out Dr. She Bloggo's The RBI Report: Choke

Pardon me while I have a shallow moment...

Lalala... Playboy... Jenny McCarthy... Hmmm... Lalala... Charlize Theron as Quinn Fabray's aunt/sister/future Quinn?... Quinn Fabray... Playboy... Lalala

All better now...

Back to your regularly scheduled stuff.
