So it seems the love affair with “Glee” is over. From many friends on facebook this was made clear. One commented they were giving the show one more shot, another gave up episodes ago, one friend says she hate watches at this point and I made the comment that it’s that one show I just can’t quit.
This episode was yet another good example of some of the issues I’ve had with the show this season, and overall. First, let’s talk about the music. This last episode at least had some memorable ditties from the 80s. That hasn’t always been the case though. For many of the episodes the music has stunk this season. I don’t know when the last time I bothered to download Glee music was. I think it was either the Madonna episode or Rocky Horror, whichever was more recent.
Why does the show just ignore Tina? I love her, let her sing more! The “Hung Up” number she did a few episodes ago was the best part of that episode!
Speaking of Madonna, the girls mash-up this week was weak! They had one line from “Material Girl” inserted into “Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend.” What was up with that? Mr. Shue should have failed them.
The show within a show continues to fail. Too much time is spent on trying to mash all these separate story lines in, and frankly I don’t care about half of the new Glee kids. I’m also finding it very hard to feel bad for pregnant Rachel, because she’s just become so unlikeable. I know they will find a way to send Finn to NY to be with her, and that her baby will end up being his. Finn can do a lot better.
The stuff hit the fan this week when Finn admitted to Will what he did to Emma. Next week’s episode has Will and Finn facing off. At least it’s back to the original characters, which I’d rather the show focused on. I could care less about Brody the playboy up in NY, or most of the new Glee Club kids. I know they needed to bring in new ones for the club, but they could have just been background characters and we could have focused on Tina, Artie, Brittany and Unique. Don’t even get me started on Jesus Dreads.
Also ignored this season has been Sue and Becky, whose one-liners are what used to make every show. Where have they been? Why don’t they get a storyline? What happened to Beastie while we are at it?
STOP bringing in annoying new characters and focus on the ones we grew to love. Frankly I’d rather get updates on Quinn and Mercedes than watch all this Puck brother nonsense with Marnia and Kitty.
