I can't believe how much I am loving Gwyneth Paltrow on "Glee."
Seriously, I was never a Gwynnie fan back in the day (and I was not alone) and now I am all chips in with her Holly Holiday character on the show. Her attempts to impart some sex education to the "Glee" kids tickled me to no end.
So many witty lines, and such great comedic timing. I absolutely am adding "And everyone's got a random" to my list of favorite quips.
Her very heated performance of "Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)" apparently got lots of folks in the mood – especially Will. And I loved, loved, loved their tango to Prince's song "Kiss." Is there anything Paltrow can't do?
The only one seeming to not feel the love was Emma. Well, she feels the love alright, but just not for her handsome husband.
Their "session" with Holly where they confessed to not having consummated their relationship is a perfect example of how well Paltrow works her character. In the hands of a lesser actress the lines "Girlfriend, what is up with that? He is hot!" would have grated on my nerves, but Paltrow made me giggle and shout "I know that's right!"
I've missed Emma's sweet brand of crazy and I will never be able to think of "Afternoon Delight" in the same way again.
Even more surprising than the fact that Emma hasn't done the do with the dentist hubby is that Santana is in love with Brittany! All this time I thought she was just digging the "sweet lady kisses" for the thrill, but no. She's really into our favorite airhead Cheerio.
Color me stunned but moved by the very emotional performance of "Landslide" that Holly, Santana and Brit turned in. That ranked right up there with Kurt's dad giving him "the talk" and stressing how much Kurt needs to know his own worth. I don't think there has been a better depiction on television of a parent being so supportive of their gay teen, so kudos to "Glee."
Looks like Paltrow is going to stick around for a bit as Will's new love interest, and I am super excited about the prospect. I'm going to enjoy it until his evil ex-wife shows up again to throw a monkey wrench into his happiness (maybe with an unplanned pregnancy from their hook up when he was sick?).
What say you Gleeks? Are you passionate for Paltrow?
