The Spanish Teacher” was one hot, hot episode! Let’s review, you know you want to!
In the beginning was a realization: Mr. Schue isn’t the best Spanish teacher around. His rendition of “La Cucaracha” sure was… something. I don’t know what was better- the big, stereotypical outfits (gotta love those sombreros) or the look on the students faces.
Soon after, we learn that a 10-year teaching position is available and everybody wants it.
Mr. Schue goes to night classes at McKinely to freshen up on his Spanish, which is where Ricky Martin comes in! Ricky’s character, David Martinez gives Mr. Schue the idea to have a Latin music week in the Glee club. How does he kick the week off?
Ricky Martin. Sang. Sexy. And. I. Know. It. In. Half. English. And. Half. Spanish!!! I’m pretty sure almost everybody can agree; that was one of the sexiest performances on Glee.
In Samcedes news, Sam and Mercedes go to visit Ms. Pillsbury, where they accept the challenge to not communicate with each other at all for a whole week to figure out their feelings for each other.
The shocker of the night: Sue wants to become pregnant- and she wants Will to be the daddy. Emma has a problem with this and confronts Sue about why she wanted Will to be her sperm donor, which resulted in a heart-warming tale of how she wanted her child to be a good person like Will.
Santana and Mr. Martinez dance and sing “La Isla Bonita” together, which Will had a problem with. He wondered why David was at the school during the day as he was a night teacher, but let’s face it- he was just jealous. Mr. Schue sings a Spanish translated version of “A Little Less Conversation” which was one of the intentionally worst performances in the world. Santana goes off on Mr. Schue for making a joke of the Latin culture and reveals that she complained to Principal Figgins about Mr. Schue’s teaching.
In the end, Emma is the one who gets the 10-year teaching position after a fight with Will and a silly pamphlet discovery. David Martinez takes over as the day time Spanish teacher and Will takes a history teaching position (the previous teacher left after going crazy)
“La Cucaracha”- Do I actually have to rate this? 1 out of 5 on the wow-o-meter. It was only about 10 seconds long, which was 10 seconds too long.
“Sexy and I Know it”- 5 out of 5 on the wow-o-meter! I don’t have words to describe how amazing the performance was. Seriously, it was just… wow.
“Don’t Wanna Lose You” 2 out of 5 on the wow-o-meter. Eh, nothing stuck out at me.
“Bamboleo/Hero”- 3 out of 5 on the wow-o-meter. I liked it, but it wasn’t anything so spectacular.
“La Isla Bonita”- 4 out of 5 on the wow-o-meter. I liked the dancing, but the lighting and Santana’s outfit looked a bit night clubbish to me.
“A Little Less Conversation”- 1 out of 5 on the wow-o-meter. That was bad. Really, really bad. The bulls and the matador outfit was so intentionally horrible. It was good from the writers standpoint of it because it was supposed to be bad.
Guest stars- Ricky Martin and NeNe Leakes
