While he doesn’t really say anything…Joaquin’s tweets do make me think that…
[Darren] Criss came to the video project after Glee covered A Great Big World’s “This Is the New Year” in January 2013. With a friendship forged, “it just kind of clicked,” said [Isaac] Rentz, adding that it was the actor who suggested that [Jessica] Szohr play his love interest.
“We kind of just trusted him — we definitely thought that he’d be able to bring something interesting to the role, and we loved Jessica’s work as well, so it all came together really fast,” Rentz said. “In fact, we cast them like two days before we actually shot the video, which was really quick and kind of a testament to how awesome Darren and Jessica are.”
Enlisting Criss for the video marks a full-circle moment for the twosome, as they called last year’s Glee cover “a life-changing moment for us. We’ll never forget the first time we saw Darren’s character Blaine sing the opening lines of the song. We were at our apartment with all of our family and friends, and in that one moment, millions of people were hearing those words … he’s one of the sweetest and most humble humans we’ve met.”
PRE-FINALE EPISODES | As Season 5 winds down, familiar faces will find themselves in unfamiliar territory. Rachel finally faces the consequences of her diva behavior; Santana struggles to find her true calling, first as a singer with Mercedes’ record label, then as Rachel’s publicist; and Kurt lands a major leading role… at a retirement home. Executive producer Ryan Murphy tells TVLine that both couples — Klaine and Samcedes, respectively — will encounter new “problems,” and that you’d better enjoy NYC while you still can because “the final season is not New York-centric at all.”
MAY 13 SEASON FINALE | The final hour of Season 5 opens with everyone at a crossroads, as Rachel contemplates leaving Broadway behind for a future in television, Sam and Mercedes consider splitting to save their careers and Blaine truly steps into the spotlight at NYADA. “All of these things are building to a head in [the finale],” Murphy explains. “I would say ‘explosion’ is too harsh of a word, but something big happens, and the final season is the aftermath of that.”
Kurt’s hand is on Blaine’s shoulder, Blaine is smiling at Kurt, KURT IS LYING ON BLAINE’S LAP & ARM, LOOKING HAPPY HELP
In my (long) fannish experience meta means analysis work on a property. It does no mean a review or any random text-based reaction.
Words change, and I can’t do anything about this, and suspect this might even be my fault slightly in Glee fandom. But man, the intense broadening of the term makes me want to strangle myself on a nearly constant basis.
I think I say this once every three months.
My understanding of meta has always been when something comments on itself. Glee, for example, does this all the time. We seem to use it for us commenting on Glee…which is not meta. But whatever. For those interested:
A term, especially in art, used to characterize something that is characteristically self-referential.
spookyblaine said: did you like the episode though?
Gleekto says: Oh yes! Really a lot! I posted quickly right after about feeling the happies. I’m just too lazy to be deep about it at the moment (there was a ton ton of meta in it that is actually really interesting but you know, gay bar superstars)
I don’t know why I’m too lazy to write up a proper reaction today. I have notes, I have things to say. But I’m idly watching gifs go by and happy. So maybe later?
I mean, we’ve all watched the GIF of this moment on repeat and I hate to ask you to take your eyes away from it, but here’s my Billboard thoughts of the week. — 'Opening Night' Tells Us To Never Ever Read The Comments.
I love that this episode was like some sort of meta delight — don’t read the comments! isn’t Twitter scary! oh but the stars of Glee are having a tweet along right now how about you join in! — as well as a meditation on the magic of NYC and who gets to partake in its magic. Will is sent from the city almost as soon as he arrives, Sue gets to enjoy the city but must leave it behind as she’s cast out by the people she previously tortured in Ohio, while the young heroes of Glee get to revel in the city. They triumph, they support each other, they gyrate in gay clubs.
Second Acts are tricky fuckers. You’ve got to pull something deep out of your gut to make it count, and especially to make up for a sagging middle. Glee is trying its damnedest to get there, and I commend it. Go strong, I believe in you Glee! You can do it!
