WTF Moment: It is tie? Where was the dancing?
In this episode, the sectionals end in a tie and the Warblers and the New Directions team both move on to regionals. The glee club format is not just a singing contest, there is a dancing and presentation component as a show choir.
The teams tied, but the Warblers seemed to only sing. Where was the “show” in their show choir? They seemed to shuffle step back and forth like people who can’t dance at a high-school dance.
The New Directions team worked the audience, had a various daring dance moves and did a whole production number, so why the tie? Honestly the elderly group that got 3rd had better dancing than the Warblers.
Certainly one understands that they both need to proceed in the competition to make the storyline more interesting, but the show creators could have done a better job with the Warblers’ routine to make it more dance-oriented and more competitive to have actually tied with New Directions clearly better show choir routine.
WTF Moment: Already in the Warblers?
In this episode, it is sectionals time and the Warblers are competing against the New Directions team. Kurt has only just started going to school at the Dalton Academy, but is already a member of the Warblers? No lengthy audition process, I guess.
Furthermore, not only is he a Warblers member, but is actually competing in sectionals? It seems unbelievable that someone just joining the school would not only already be a member of the esteemed Warblers, a high-profile group at school, but also that he gets to compete in their sectionals competition?
He learned the routine awfully quickly, I guess, and none of the other members in the group minded that a brand new student/member would be competing with them? Particularly when Kurt was previously attending the school they were competing against and has many friends including a step brother there?
Wow, what a welcoming group of teenager?
WTF Moment: Be less an individual and more like the team
In this episode, Blaine, in coaching Kurt for the Warblers, tells him to be less the individual star with the singing and more a team player. Yet, it seems that in the performances there isn’t a rotation of leads, but only Blaine gets to lead? WTF to the team theory. So, I guess the be a team person applies to everyone else in the Warblers but not Blaine.
WTF Moment: Private School Admissions process
In this episode, Kurt is now attending the Dalton Academy. In previous episodes, Dalton Academy was described as an expensive, private school. Yet, in only on episode, Kurt has managed to get admission and is attending.
Getting into a private school involves waiting lists, interviews, academic achievement, but Kurt seemed to be able to just start attending? Nevermind that other less expensive public schools could have been tried, or even home schooling, but the concept that a student can instantly start attending a private school is nonsense.
Furthermore, he just seems to start there right during a term. He doesn’t have to wait for a new semester or quarter to start? How could he possible just start attending classes so far along in the school session? He wouldn’t be prepared to participate in any tests.
A very challenging admissions process seemed to be completely overlooked.
WTF Moment: I’ll let you out if I get to come
In this episode, Sarah locks Casey in one of castle’s containment rooms. When Morgan finds Casey in the containment room, he tells Casey that he will only let Casey out if he gets to go with him to find Sarah. Casey reluctantly says ok, and he and Morgan go after Sarah.
Casey is a spy and there is no reason he wouldn’t lie to get freed. So, why doesn’t he lie to Morgan and once Morgan lets him free, why doesn’t Casey just go after Sarah alone? He behaves completely un-spy-like and unlike his usual character, letting Morgan call the shots. A more believeable Casey character would have even just threatened Morgan and said let me out or when I do get out, you’ll be sorry you didn’t free me. Or, if something happens to Sarah and you don’t let me out, it will be your fault
What are they doing making Casey the wimp?
WTF Moment: Call 911 yourself
In this episode, a thief tries to steal a chemical weapon with the burn notice team’s support. The WTF moment occurs near the end when she tries to double cross them and they catch her and handcuff her by the side of the road. They give the thief a phone and tell her to call 911 and report herself as the thief of the weapon to homeland security……and then walk away and leave her.
Although reporting herself to homeland security may get her protection from bad guys that want the chemical weapon, the thief is obviously not trustworthy and not so likely to had herself over to homeland security.
So why doesn’t the burn notice team not call 911 and report her in and give the address of where she is to the authorities so that they can come and arrest her? She can simply wait for someone to drive by and make up so lie about why she is handcuffed by the side of the road, and as an attractive woman in distress, people will quickly help her.
They are doing a lousy job of neutralizing a dangerous enemy by leaving them merely handcuffed by a public road.
WTF: Why is Schue the lead?
In this episode, as well as so many others, Will Schuester seems to take the lead in the vocal numbers. I can see if he were showing them a technique that would make sense, but he seems to just take the lead to sing for singing sake. The kids should be complaining about them not being the lead or getting to do all the singing. After all, it is the kids glee club, not Will Schuester’s. Perhaps the show should have him do the singing in a non-stealing from the kid’s spotlight sorta way.
