Glee Season 2 Recap: Britney Spears Extravaganza
You talked about it and now the Britney Spears Glee Season 2 episode has aired, here is a quick recap of last night’s event.
Britney Spears is still a very hot commodity. Ratings for last night’s Glee Season 2 Episode 2 titled Britney/Brittany that featured songs and a guest appearance by Britney Spears were up 4%. The FOX hit Glee brought in an estimated 13.3 million viewers – the highest rated episode of Glee ever.
Glee Season 2 Episode 2 finds the kids trying to convince Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) to let them incorporate some Britney Spears songs into their routine for the high school assembly. While Will is hesitant to do such edgy music it is actually Brittany (Heather Morris) who protests the loudest. As it turns out her full name on Glee is Brittany S. Pears. She has had live much of her life in the shadow of her somewhat namesake and isn’t too thrilled at the idea of now doing Britney Spears songs in the Glee club.
Meanwhile, Emma (Jayma Mays) begins seeing a dentist named Carl (the ageless John Stamos) and Will finds himself a little jealous. He decides to find out a little more about Dr. Carl so he invites him to speak to the Glee club about oral hygiene. As expected the girl’s swoon and one by one various members of the club make their way to Dr. Carl’s (John Stamos) office for a check up. As it turns out Dr. Carl loves the nitrous oxide and is not afraid to dispense it liberally. As each student goes under the Britney Spears fantasies begin.
Brittany does “Slave 4U” and looks hot doing so. Who knew she had a six-pack? She wears a few of Britney Spears’ iconic outfits from different videos and even incorporates the albino snake used during Britney Spears’ MTV VMA performance of Slave 4 U from several years back. When Brittany returns for a follow-up she brings Santana (Naya Rivera) with her. They both get the gas and knock out a duet for the Britney Spears/Madonna hit “Me Against the Music.” Last to get in the dentists chair on last nights Glee Season 2 episode was Artie (Kevin McHale) who does a wild version of “Stronger” that involves the football team. After his Britney Spears hallucination he asks Finn (Cory Monteith) to help him get back on the team because he thinks it will impress Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz).
Britney Spears herself makes some cameo appearances and is effective if not underused for the big Glee episode which aired last night. She has some good lines and they don’t give her too much to do so she avoids any kind of potential let down. As the episode comes to an end Will, now realizing that his chances to win Emma back from Dr. Carl are fading, buys a yellow sports car that only attracts all the wrong people. The Glee club does a version of Toxic at the assembly that includes Will doing some pretty crazy, potentially inappropriate dancing with the students. Rachel ends the episode by using Paramore’s “You Are The Only Exception” to apologize to Finn. What? Was there no Britney Spears make-up song available?
Glee Season 2 returns next Tuesday night at 8|7c on FOX.
