Think this is one of the most real episodes of Glee I have ever seen. It really touched me, and it shows how much bullying is a problem in our school. Wish they would open there eyes up more to what Kurt goes through each day.


Sidenote, LOVED the combos the boys vs. girls teams did!

I loved Will and Beiste's kiss. I was afraid she might misunderstand, but I'm glad she didn't. It was one of the sweetest moments in the show's history.

Kurt's friend is named Blaine. I'd be rooting for them to get together, but we know what happened the last time one of the Gleesters got together with one of the "enemy."

I felt for Kurt, and for Beiste. I liked how they threw in Puck's vulnerability, too.

Each of the three of them had their own issues, being bullied for Kurt and Beiste, but the way Puck lashed out during the meeting in the principal's office made me wonder exactly how much support he's getting (or not getting, since he does tend to try and go it alone) for the poor choices he's made... One thing I've learned, is that even if a kid makes poor choices and the world just writes them off as a lost cause... they're still appreciative of those who do reach out to actively help them. As evidenced by the exchange between Puck and Artie. :)

I really liked this episode overall, both liplocks made my jaw drop. I KNEW the Will/Beiste one was happening, and still couldn't believe it when I saw it. I think I was kind of hoping for a "No, Will, you don't have to do that" kind of moment there. The Kurt/Bully one made my husband and I both go "What.. The... F---" well into the commercial break.

Kurt's hero (forgot his name) is a cutie. I can't wait to see more of the Warblers!

I loved this episode. I think I empathized mostly with the Coach and the idea that someone can be older, not conventionally attractive, stereotyped by other people, yet show her vulnerability. I liked the end where the kids gave her a group hug and she accepted it. Vulnerability is a very difficult issue for me. I don't like to show it, but here on Spark, people are so honest that it encourages me to be in touch with my vulnerability.

You know the thing that got me, was Kurt saying

"He has made it his mission to make my life miserable, and no one even seems to notice" (not quoting verbatim) but the jest of it, to me seemed that it wasn't that the guy was focusing but that everyone else just went on with their day, as if not seeing the bullying.

It made me sad, and made me think of the Trevor project, which a few of the actors in Glee have done spots for. Beaste being bullied as well, but in another form, and what it did to her, affecting her so deeply even as an adult. Just yeah :) good episode, no grilled cheezus but..

GO KURTTTT!
P.s. Accapella groups ROCK. I hope more of them happen in every episode!

I didn't see the kiss coming, but I suspected the big burly brute of an athlete might be gay himself. I think it's because Kurt said repeatedly he was the only gay "out" at his school which planted in my mind the fact that there were others. And then this one particular guy keeps attacking him. Hmmmmm, I said to myself.

And when Will was encouraging Coach, especially after she said she was 40 and had never been kissed, I was thinking "Oh Will. Be kind. Kiss her." And he did. What a tender moment.

I wasn't bullied in school. I tended to stand up to the bullies. I was such an angry kid that I didn't take much crap off anyone, even though most of the kids in my crowd were older than I and bigger than I. Maybe that put a chip on my shoulder, I don't know...but I could relate to Coach and feeling so unloved.

No matter what the details of our lives are, this show (and these kids) always seem to touch on something that we can relate to. Each week that I watch, I thank God all over again that high school is behind me.

You could not pay me enough money to ever want to return to the teen years!

Ditto, I was shocked to see him lay a liplock on Kurt.
I was lucky, I wasn't bullied. It's a wonder as I'm short 4'8" and was super shy and no self-esteem. Maybe I was too short to be noticed.

Okay, I totally did NOT see Kurt's kiss coming! And I loved Will kissing Coach Beiste. He is probably the sweetest man on TV.

I was bullied in school, and this episode left me shaking. Especially when the bully knocked Kurt to the floor and everyone just walked past him.

Bravo to everyone connected with this episode.
