  1. Oh, man, I couldn’t help myself. I usually avoid spoilers, but I was dying to see that version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” so I peaked in the headlines thread.

    I actually think it’s great that they’re allowing the romantic tension to build between Blaine and Kurt and not rushing “the kiss.” Reminded me a LOT of an old romantic comedy, where you had to allow your imagination to work a little. Sometimes less really is more.

    If the Glee writers actually allow the two of them to gradually fall in love with each other (unlike most of the ridiculous relationships on the show), it will be better for the storyline, and a huge pay-off, I think.

    They did a fantastic job of casting Blaine, though. The chemistry between Darren Criss and Chris Colfer is off the charts.

    And that prep school they attend would cost at least $30,000 a year where I live on the east coast. That must have been SOME honeymoon Kurt’s dad and Finn’s mom had planned!

  2. The BICO duet is just full of sweetness and charm. It’s adorable, watching old Hollywood romance combined with modern characters.

  3. BICO is irresistible! I love the way CC and DC’s voices sound together.

  4. loved ‘Baby it’s cold outside’. They didn’t use the ‘Gosh your lips look delicious’ part. Would have loved to see how they interpret it..

    Damn, Darren Criss on Glee’s been bad for my pocket. Don’t normally buy Glee singles, but since he came on have been buying every one with him. Guess the trend is gonna continue…

    Glee producers should release a Glee album with just Darren Criss singles. I know I would buy! :)

    He is soo cute.

  5. I’ve been in love with Chris and Darren’s version of BICO since I first heared it weeks ago, and the thing I was most worried about was that the visuals provided by the show will not live up to the audio provided by its cast. Well, I shouldn’t have worried – this clip is wonderful and complements the vocal performance to perfection. Simply wonderful. The Kurt-Blaine (or Klaine, as the internet dubs them) relationship has become the main drawing point of Glee for me, and I really hope they do it justice and bring them together in a way that’s unrushed and satisfying to the audience.

    Personally, I can’t wait to see more.

  6. Wow. Rachel’s Merry Christmas Darling was so touching. She really is unbelievably talented. Why can’t Shue stop bullying and demeaning her in front of all the other Gleeksters and just let her sing.

  7. I loved both songs. Lea is one talented girl. Def deserve the awards she got as a triple threat. I agree about the chemistry between Kurt and Blaine (Chris and Darren) it is off the charts. Super casting job. I also agree with Bootstar that they need to continue to develop this relationship slowly and organically. Darren is a huge asset to this show and he really compliments Chris and gives him more depth and actually makes him less of a stereotype. Good job there too. Again Great video and I look forward to the show next week.

  8. Is the prep school a boarding school? It hasn’t been said, but it seems that it must be given that last show Kurt said he hasn’t seen or talked much to Finn since transferring.

  9. ^^ Also supported by the fact that he has Pavarotti there with him on different days (unless he brings the bird with him from home every day, which doesn’t make much sense).
    Plus the BICO clip looks very after-school-hours to me. But it hasn’t been stated clearly on the show whether or not Kurt actually lives in Dalton.

  10. I suspect they haven’t even decided whether or not it’s a boarding school. (Although if it’s the latter, it would cost more like $45,000 – $50,000 to board!) And some boarding schools also have day students, so Kurt could be a day student, I suppose.

    Also, I know there’s been all kinds of speculation that Blaine will eventually end up at McKinley High, but I SO hope they don’t do that. Independent schools attract students from a much wider area than just one school district (and the best boarding schools attract kids from all over the country). What are the odds that Blaine lives in Lima too?

    I forget how they wrote Jesse into attending McKinley, but it was really a stretch for me — even by musical theater standards!

  11. I’m not a fan of Glee (overly trite and predictable) but I must say that I really like Darren Criss and found his duet with Chris C. very entertaining and it was as enjoyable as the old Steve Lawrence / Eydie Gorme duet that made the song famous.

  12. Love how darren says ” hoooow can you do this thing to me?”. His expression is adorable.

    I think rachel’s chemistry was better with the Jesse St James guy. Glad Finn and her are not together. Finn is an idiot, but well so is Rachel.

    Have you seen Darren’s numerous acoustic covers of Disney songs on YouTube? If he were to release an album of such recordings, I would buy it in an instant.

    Hey RemusL, yes I have heard. Love Part of this Life and Reflection the most. Yeah, I would buy it too! :)

    I love this youtube the most. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bYariSUNgI&feature=more_related

    Its an announcement about AVPM, when they supposedly had to remove the videos from utube cos of legal issues. The best part is when Darren comes in towards the latter part of the video ( from 3.04 mins). Love the song and his expression. Its absolutely adorable. I have that on re-watch just cos of Darren!

  15. Hakunamatata, with a moniker like yours, I have no doubt you’d be a Disney music fan. :P

    Yeah, that StarKid announcement vid is very funny and creative. Of all of Darren’s YouTube videos, I think my personal favourite is this one of his original song “The Muse” that he performed in 2007 live while attending the University of Michigan:

    (The same audio performance, I think, uploaded by the Darren Criss Fanpage with lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pQxkBUJ_HE )

  16. Hey RemusL:

    Ooh yeah I like Muse too. I had heard it before but not close enough. Wonder why he didn’t release it in his EP. Rest of his songs are great too.

    Regarding my name, i do like Disney but not that big of a fan. I just like the meaning of the word.

    And gosh.. i need to stop re-playing the BICO video, i think i am going nuts.
