I'll admit that I thought this season was going to continue to be a dud after last week's episode. I thought that the first episode back was a one off and this season would be filled with badly written episodes with songs that made no sense to the central plot. However, I was proved wrong with this episode of Glee - 'Makeover'. The episode started with a Blaine voice-over in which Blaine basically told us that he wanted to be more involved at McKinley and find his place now that Kurt is gone. I'm liking this storyline for Blaine because his storylines have always been related to Kurt somehow, so I'm excited to see Blaine strike out on his own. Also, I'm loving Blaine singing 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World', I love 80's music and I love the montage with this scene, it makes the scene very John Hughes. Blaine then signs up to be class president, when I was thinking about it this made sense, Blaine would make a great president.

Season premieres set up expectations for the viewer. We hope that each episode will be just as good but unfortunately this was not the case for Glee's 'Britney 2.O'. The episode had it's moments, however overall I feel like it fell flat. Firstly, this episode is all about Brittany which I was happy about cause I loved Brittany in the last episode, she wasn't so fun in this episode though, maybe it was because she was depressed. Anyway, we started with a trademark Glee voice-over from Brittany but Brittany knowing about voice-overs and failing to do one is kind of like breaking the fourth wall, right? I'm not sure but Brittany starts singing 'Hold It Against Me', I thought this was such a weird song choice and it was too short. But that Doesn't matter, what matters is Happyville! Brittany failed her Math test because she answered the questions on her test by drawing a picture of Happyville where Math doesn't exist. I wanna move to Happyville, it looks fun.

Let me start by saying that I really do like Glee but like most people it lost me a little bit last season. It really wasn't as fun to watch last season and I feel like it lost its spark. However, this episode was all I could've wished for from a season premiere (okay, maybe not all I could have wished for but we'll get to that later). So without further ado, here is a brief (I use that word lightly) recap on the Glee season 4 premiere - 'The New Rachel', with my thoughts added in.
