The Glee screen writers have done a very nice job of creating an engaging storyline. When Chris Colfer's smile is wide, he does look more comic than romantic. (To that extent, the critics have a point.) But when he doesn't smile really wide, he's very fetching by any standard. I don't think critics are always honest when they assess Colfer's looks.
Cute, but I honestly don't like Blaine and Kurt together romantically. They just don't strike me as a couple; I wish they would have used someone else.

Wow, that was... well, gay.

Hahaha, hooray! Romantic fans are romantic!
Everyone should get wild applause when they smooch, smooching is awesome.

Hey Smell... the same could be said for lots of people. There's always one person in a relationship who "could do better", but the people who care about doing better are usually the ones who end up alone.

@Jim I was thinking the same thing. That mirror is way too small and that end table needs to go.

WAIT... ppl FILM themselves... WATCHING TV??? self importance has hit a new high...
This kiss feels forced...it does not hold a candle to the kiss between Kurt and Karofsky : that was a powerful Glee moment!

It's amazing to see this. I can remember watching tv as a child hoping to see a gay character that wasn't written as negative.
My heart swells that kids now can have positive role models on television and the debates they have are on whether this is the right guy or the right moment as opposed to how negative and self destructive the characters is.
The important point here is the _reaction_ of those viewers to the kiss. It obviously meant so much to them, which is both poignant (because it shouldn't have to mean that much) and heartwarming (because it does).
I also agree that it's fantastic that folks even debate whether Kurt and Blaine are right for one another. That conversation alone is indicative of how far gay rights have come in such a (relatively) short period of time.

AWWWW. I unfortunately had to watch the episode online on half the screen while writing a paper so I didn't get into the scene and thought they could have lingered on the scene a bit more... watching these kids react like this made the scene and glee sooooooooooooooooooooo much more exciting to watch!!!
I found the scene where they buried the canary and reached for each other's hand more poignant. Chacun à son gout.

Rich, I totally agree with you. That scene was polished.

Aren't these kids supposed to be in high school? Doesn't this pretty much fit the definition of child pornography?

So....did they know about the pending kiss and set up a camera to catch their anticipated reaction, or do they always record themselves watching Glee?

My God, the snarky comments on here are amazing! If you can't celebrate what these young kids saw on AMERICAN TELEVISION as well as they way they memorialized their reactions on video to "the kiss", then you have no feelings whatsoever. "Jaded" doesn't begin to describe some posters.

@Boston Bear, they must have known something was coming, yeah? Is this the same gang who recorded themselves watching the Kurt/Karofsky assault-in-the-locker-room episode? There was another similar video of a livingroom full of kids totally spazzing out over that as well.

@Jim and Kenton, broke-ass college students / recent grads? Really thoughtful comments there, guys.
