Glee Britney Spears episode (Glee season 2 episode 2) aired last night, with the often-troubled but apparently recovering singer making a memorable appearance. But what did the cast think of the Glee Britney Spears episode?
Check out the Glee Britney Spears episode video interview below, and let us know what you thought of the Glee Britney Spears episode and Glee season 2 episode 2 online free video.
Glee Britney Spears Episode Official Review: According to Hollywood Gossip reports:
If you love Glee and you love Britney Spears, you might have enjoyed the Fox series’ tribute to the pop superstar last night. But you also might not have, since there was basically no plot, no attempt at storytelling and generally no point.
While the Britney covers were cool to a point, was this even TV? Or more of a mash-up of music videos, Spears imitations and the occasional, funny one-liner?
There wasn’t even original Glee music, the hallmark of the show, which fans know connects the material to the characters in a very personal way. Not Tuesday.
The numbers were chosen basically because there was a Facebook campaign for a Britney episode and the star’s manager lobbied for it. Not exactly organic.
Don’t get us wrong, there were plenty of good lines and some of the covers were actually pretty good. But you can’t abandon all storytelling like this as a stunt.
Even its previous tribute episodes, in which the show paid homage to Madonna and Lady Gaga, helped advance the plot and actually felt like Glee. It’s doable.
According to tvfanatic:
Don’t hate me, Gleeks. But this was a terrible episode.
There was no plot, no flow, no attempt at storytelling whatsoever. Heck, “Brittany/Britney” wasn’t even an episode of television. It was mostly just a mash-up of music videos, as various Glee characters did their best Britney Spears imitations.
For about 30 seconds, it was very cool and impressive to see how well Heather Morris could pull off Britney. But about halfway into “I’m a Slave 4 U,” I realized: I don’t wanna see these actors impersonate a famous pop star; I wanna see them act as the characters I’ve grown to love, singing something that relates to whatever they are thinking or feeling, based on current storylines, relationships, etc.
The best Glee numbers connect the material to the characters in a very personal way. But most of these covers existed solely because there actually was a Facebook campaign for a Britney Spears episode. For perhaps the first time in television history, it’s as if the fans wrote an episode – and the result was a mess of musical numbers that never came together at any point.
In its previous tribute episode, “The Power of Madonna,” Glee didn’t lose track of its storytelling. There were actually a few major developments, most prominently Finn sleeping with Santana and Rachel deciding not to do the same with Jesse. Each song helped to move the plot forward.
But, ironically, Rachel’s rendition of “The Only Exception” was the only example of a similar single this week… and it was the only non-Britney cover of the hour! Moreover, every cameo of Britney herself felt out of place and forced.
Still, thanks to one number and a few memorable one-liners, there were some highlights:
The group’s performance of “Toxic” was one of the show’s best to date. Ideally, this would have been the only Britney number. The episode could have kept the premise of Will refusing to take on Spears, only to eventually cave and show off for Emma in the same manner.
Sue taught Becky how to make a citizen’s arrest? Amazing.
Every line out of Brittany’s mouth was funnier than the previous one. (“This room looks like that room on that spaceship when I got probed.”)
According to Babble:
Watch the Glee season 2 episode 2 online (the Britney Spears episode!) with this variety of video clips and websites that include Glee’s season 2 episode, “Britney/Brittany.”
The Glee season 2 Britney Spears episode features some of Brit’s very best, as the New Directions gang and, most notably, ditzy cheerleader Brittany (Heather Morris), deliver on the highly anticipated episode.
Heather Morris explains Glee’s Britney Spears episode: “Through a special substance, I go under and have a couple of dream sequences — not only myself, but with Santana [Naya Rivera]. A lot of it has to do with Will [Matthew Morrison] not allowing us to perform Britney Spears songs, because he doesn’t agree with what kind of entertainer she is, so it’s our fight to do Britney. But it’s not just us doing Britney in show choir; there are other sequences — it’s our homage to her.”
