This summer, I'll be going back to review the season one episodes of FOX's Glee. These are fresh reviews, not reposts, and I hope you will enjoy reliving the first season with me.
FOX's Glee continues season one with "Hairography." Hairography is, as the episode tells us, using swinging hair to distract from the lack of talent in the performing club. This is appropriate, as the word 'distraction' is used in "Hairography" a zillion times, give or take a few. Terri (Jessalyn Gilsig) wants to distract Will (Matthew Morrison) so he doesn't realize that she's not pregnant. Quinn (Dianna Agron) wants to distract Finn (Cory Monteith) so she can spend some time with Puck (Mark Salling) while she considers switching boyfriends. Both are lying to their significant others, and are hoping to get away with it.
This is a shame. Quinn continues to prove herself completely unworthy of the good-hearted Finn. Sure, Finn does allow himself to get a little closer to Rachel (Lea Michele) than he should, but that can be chalked up to teenage hormones. What is important is that he doesn't act on the attraction. He is also honest with Quinn, and authentic with Rachel, so as not to deceive either girl. It may be an arguable point that Finn is a much better person than Quinn, who constantly lies and cheated on him prior to the series beginning, but I think Finn would come out the winner in any true discussion. He can do much better than to be with Quinn.
Puck is a little more compatible. Quinn gets angry when Puck lies about sexting with Santana (Naya Rivera) while the two babysit Kendra's (Jennifer Aspen) kids. However, this only makes her a hypocrite. She is lying to Finn while she checks and sees if Puck might be the better match after all. He is, but Quinn's pride is too wounded to realize that, and she thinks she is better than he is. She's not. While Puck does lie to her at the time, he is generally an honest person, and tells her exactly who he is well before she makes a serious commitment to him. For that, Puck also deserves someone better than the manipulative Quinn.
