Despite their loss at the Regionals, the kids in New Directions are more motivated than ever. And whether it's Will doing a sexy tango with a substitute teacher (Gwyneth Paltrow), Sue joining the glee club, or everyone catching Bieber fever, the excitement at William McKinley High School is keeping everyone on their toes. With more incredible musical numbers, hugely popular guest stars like John Stamos, Carol Burnett and Kristin Chenowith and lots of behind-the-scenes special features, Glee Season 2 hits all the right notes.
A musical comedy-drama TV series that gains momentum with each season, Glee: The Complete Third Season takes on complicated contemporary teen issues and explores them in a music-filled way that resonates with both teen and adult viewers. This eventful year at McKinley High School begins with the glee club New Directions recruiting more members, Coach Sue Sylvester running for congress, Blaine transferring to McKinley, and several original New Directions members finishing up their senior year. As graduation nears, Rachel and Kurt struggle through the application procedure to gain acceptance into their college choice NYADA, there are a couple of wedding proposals (one more unexpected than the other), and Santana examines her sexual orientation. Mike Chang struggles with parental expectations, Kurt and Blaine hit a rocky patch, and Mercedes finds herself at the center of an interesting love triangle. Coaches Sylvester and Beiste each reveal a whole new side of their personalities, a serious accident threatens to derail several lives, and, of course, New Directions takes another crack at winning Regionals. As good as the stories and characters are, the best thing about Glee is the musical performances, and this season does not disappoint. Broadway-inspired numbers from shows like Hairspray, West Side Story, and Dreamgirls are passionately delivered right alongside classic rock and pop songs from bands such as Foreigner and Chicago and iconic artists like Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. There are also plenty of songs made popular by contemporary artists like Coldplay, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Jason Mraz, and Taylor Swift. The special "Extraordinary Merry Christmas" episode takes the glee club back into the past when times were simpler and delivers a fine parody of 1950s-sitcom holiday specials with songs like "Blue Christmas," "Let It Snow," and "My Favorite Things." The Michael Jackson-themed episode "Michael" celebrates the decades of musical contributions of an amazing artist, with songs ranging from "Never Can Say Goodbye" to "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" and "Black and White." The Whitney Houston-themed episode "Dance with Somebody," aired just following Houston's unexpected passing, pays tribute to a phenomenal artist with power-driven songs like "Saving All My Love for You," "I Wanna Dance with Somebody," and "I Have Nothing." This season features some unexpected solos and vocal pairings for the regular cast; recurring roles for Glee Project winners Samuel Larsen (Joe Hart) and Damian McGinty (Rory Flanagan), and contestants Alex Newell (Wade) and Lindsay Pearce (Harmony); and an amazing list of guest artists, including Idina Menzel, Whoopi Goldberg, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, and Lindsay Lohan. The "Jukebox" special feature allows viewers to select and play the musical numbers from each episode. Other bonus features include a couple of deleted and extended scenes, a "Glee Under the Stars" interview session, the "Glee Give a Note" check presentation and student interviews from Culver City Middle School, and a behind-the-scenes look at the "Props" episode. Also offered are interviews with Glee's newest cast members, backstage musings on the "Goodbye" episode, and a few choice words from Sue Sylvester.

My only problem with this season and it's not really even that much of an issue, but it seems that Brittany (who is and always will be my 2nd favorite Glee character ever), who throughout season 2 became smarter as the season progressed, it just seems that her intelligence from the end of season 2 to the beginning of season 3 went way way down. It's not too big of an issue, like I said, for it does give out some comedic relief since the lovely Heather Morris knows how to perfectly time a punchline, it just seems disappointing to see a character progress so much and then to have that all be forgotten and have her placed at the butt of the joke again.
One of my favorite things about this season was definitely the relationship between Santana and Brittany. I am one of those people that wanted to see them together even before I knew they would even come close to dating, and now that they're finally together it's so nice to see them given the same problems that the straight couples get, except for the fact that Finn/Rachel are always fighting and I really only recall 1 or 2 fights between Santana/Brittany.
Glee has done it again.
Still recommend for the unpopular and even the popular teen/adult whoever cause we all can learn from some of the lessons implemented in the really good episodes of the show.
