Part 1 of 3: Someone Like You

So, here’s what you missed on Glee: Emma and Ken are getting married and want Will to mash-up their favourite songs for the reception, but it’s obvious Will would much rather be macking with Emma than making music. Ken lays down the gauntlet: the football team can be players or singers, and not both. Finn and Quinn are no longer the school’s coolest couple, being replaced by Puck and Rachel, who are actually into Quinn and Finn respectively, and Sue has a date. Let’s roll on with the show…

 

A plaid-clad Puck ate a TV dinner of a different kind one fateful night – one which made him have bizarre Jewish sex dreams about Barbra wannabe Rachel Berry.

Here’s how it went:

 

First of all, this is just my protest that Mark Salling wasn’t in Magic Mike.

Rachel appears through the window along with a Star of David necklace, a very flattering frilly nightgown and a wind machine. It seems clear to Puck what he must do: tap that.

Rachel, oblivious, invites him over to work on a duet, unconsciously provocative in white frilly cap sleeves and a stripy mini. What a minx.

Then this happens. Oy vey.

Yes, Finn, we’re shocked too! Shocked, but kind of glad you just got slushied. Maybe that’ll teach you to stop wearing open plaid shirts over t-shirts. Good call on matching beige detailing with beige patterning, even if you are as bland as can be.

In order to prevent further incident, Finn and Quinn don huge sunglasses and vaguely resemble Madden and Richie, only lost in Ohio (is that a reality show premise I hear?) A word to the wise: celebrities don’t wear unimaginative polo shirts and khakis.

Where’s the knit cap, Finn? Where’s the artistic stubble and numerous quasi-religious symbols?

As for you, Nicole/Quinn, keep working that ponytail. You won’t have it for long…

Puck just is cool, even in layered black and grey. Can we make straws behind ears happen?

At least Rachel matches, and that Big Quench cup adds a lovely pop of colour to her outfit. Can we make disposable cups happen too?

And with a slushie and a smile, Puckleberry is born. They’re such a blesses pairing that heavenly light makes Puck’s shirt almost palatable – to be honest, I quite like the large, loose pattern and blue and white, matching so cutely with Rachel’s pink and white rain mac and sweater set.

I am very much behind this couple if they keep being so adorable.

Finn is not impressed, and nor am I. That’s the umpteenth time he’s worn that shirt.

I am, however, impressed, by the fact that Puck serenades Rachel with Sweet Caroline, who is again wearing a white blouse, this time with a quite acceptable purpley black skirt.

Puck’s boring again, but at least he has a diamond of a singing voice. Appreciate the humour, readers, if not the clothes.

 

Bless Quinn, she thinks Puck’s singing to her. Since she’s rejected him the last hundred times he’s tried to help her out/ask her out, I have no idea what would give her that impression. Keep your eye on that ponytail…

To keep his cool, and Quinn’s, Finn chooses football over glee and celebrates with this pale blue shirt, which I’m sure would be very nice: done up, with a tie and a blazer over it.

This is Finn’s best look of the episode. I love insanely large shoulders on a man. He’s in a very High School Musical place right now, torn between sport and music, Quinn and Rachel, more clothes in block colours or giving me something more to work with…

Will acts fatherly in a brown leather jacket with a biker collar, which I’ve always liked on him, but beneath is the awkward pairing of a soft blue shirt with an acid green and navy blue striped tie. The pastel/bright thing really doesn’t work.

Green and nav goes beautifully, however, in Rachel’s chunky cardigan, which she pairs with a denim skirt and knee socks. This is one of those rare outfits I would actually wear, excepting that lacy thermal underwear she’s chosen instead of a blouse.

Puck is in denial about his feelings for Quinn. I am in denial about the amount of grey he wears.

See what I meant about the ponytail?!

Fired from the Cheerios for being pregnant, Quinn sports sadness, beautiful blonde waves and a well matched white and blue dress and cerulean cardigan. I think she looks practically angelic, so long live this Quinn – I hear she has headbands to come, and Mama loves her some accessories.
