    We all should have a Blaine Shrine dedicated to COURAGE ( just like Kurt has in his locker) . Even if Blaine and Kurt aren’t lovers -we need MORE of Blain’s courage and vocal talents as well as the back up voices of the Tufts Beelzebubs. This was an amazing Glee and a most deserves STAR KID turn by Darren Criss – just another example of San Francisco Values at work ….

    Their a capella version was fantastic! I still have it playing in my head … along with the other thing bouncing around in there ;) Hope they get another great song to sing soon.

    Darren Criss would make a great addition to the already talented cast!

    I heard that they were making him a series regular because the Producers actually like the story arch. I guess its like a little mini bully story arch, which is probably the only part of a storyline we’ve had all season (everything’s been filler). I like Kurt episodes because the kid can really act, which makes you into the show. I mean the songs are great covers, but if you don’t have a decent storyline you sort of lose the point.

    Teenage Dreams has been the best cover of the series. The warmth and charisma Darren brought to the screen had me smiling uncontrollably for the whole day. Unlike the other songs, I’ve replayed the video of him and the Warblers at LEAST 15 times and I’m still not sick of it!! This new storyline has reminded everyone how brilliant Glee can be. I have to agree with Estevan, the episodes based on Kurt are, in general the best and most heart wrenching.
    Darren is ALREADY attracting new viewers!! He deserves to be a regular!!

    Please God no. Blaine is smarmy and weirds me out. I don’t know if it’s because Darren Criss is a bad actor, or if that’s how he intended to play him, but he had an extremely strong used car salesman vibe (similar to Jesse, but worse because so many people are convinced he’s amazing just because of A very Potter blah blah blah). And I’m really not eager to see them try to make him Kurt’s bf, because they have next to no chemistry. KAROFSKY and Kurt had more chemistry than Kurt and Blaine.

    Bookworm Says:

    And can I just add, do we really need even more ‘regulars’ to clutter up and already extremely cluttered show. It’s gone down hill this season, partially because of the excess of characters that they have to try to follow.
