Day 285- Britney/Brittany

It's Glee Tuesday!

Over the second season of Glee, Brittany became one of my favorite characters.  Like Sue Sylvester, just about every single line she says is some kind of off-the-wall bit of hilarious.  Take her first line of tonight's episode, for example.

Mr. Shue: Who can tell me who Christopher Cross is? 
Brittany: He discovered America!

Brittany finally got her chance to really shine with some solos tonight in the episode featuring songs from that other Britney... Britney Spears.  At first, she was hesitant to fall under the Britney spell.

Kurt: Why not Britney, Brittany?
Brittany: Because my name is also Britney Spears.  My middle name is Susan, my last name is Pierce.  That makes me Brittany S. Pierce.  Britney Spears.  I've lived my entire life in Britney Spears' shadow.  I will never be as talented or as famous.  I hope you'll all respect that I want Glee club to remain a place where I, Brittany S. Pierce, can escape the torment of Britney Spears.  Thank you for understanding.  It's been a hard road.    

Yet, some trippy time at the dentist's office is enough to send Brittany singing and dancing through much of the Britney Spears catalog in costumes and sets that are amazingly close to the originals.  Man, this girl can dance!  Eat your heart out, Britney... Brittany rules.

This girl is so funny that she's acting even when she is not the focus of a scene.  She's always in the background making a funny face or doing something else complete in keeping with her space cadet character.  Then, out of nowhere, the camera pans to her, and she delivers another homerun.

"I don't brush my teeth.  I rinse my mouth out with soda after I eat.  I was pretty sure Dr. Pepper was a dentist."

"This room looks like the one on that spaceship where I got probed."

"Please don't pull out all my teeth.  When I smile, I'll look like an adult baby... but with boobs."

I could go on and on... yay for my girl Britney :).  I hope that this means a lot more of her to come.  And Sue.  And Carl the dentist aka Uncle Jesse aka John Stamos aka another one of my childhood crushes turned Glee guest star (he joined the NPH club tonight).  If Glee could somehow land Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage), the trifecta would be complete!

Thank you, Britney/Brittany, you made my day.
