Glee > Glee Review: "Grilled Cheesus" > Comments Page 3
I'm still trying to make up my mind about this episode. For some reason I didn't really feel the resolution. But I like that they didn't go in one particular direction. I hoped Quinn would be featured more, since she originally was the most religious one.
But one thing I'm sure of - Lea Michele is AMAZING! She does Barbara like no one else. That scene by the lake was incredible, absolutely loved it.
This was a wonderful episode of Glee, i am so glad that they managed to do something deep (though i did enjoy last weeks episode, more for the numbers than the plot).
Also, i'm really glad that Kurt remained an athiest right to the end. And the girls going to his seriously fathers side to pray to somethone Kurt told them that he didnt believe existed was really wrong.
I know that growing up gay, especially in a religious family is really difficult, and that having people constantly force their belief on you is tiring to say the very least. And for the same reasons that Kurt doesnt believe in god, i dont aswell. I'm just glad i went to a school with an almost entirely agnostic student body.
Thank you glee.
I dont belive in God. Exactly for the same reason Kurt's character's doesn't. And while looking at the prospect of an entire Glee episode dedicated to hollyroller songs, (trust me I debated it for a while to just turn it off), I am at the end entirely pleased by the way they wrote and ultimately presented the episode.
Dont get me wrong, it's not that I dont believe in a higher power. It's that my higher power made me gay for a reason, the same way he/she made Sue Sylvester's sister have down syndrome just so we could ultimately as a TV voyeur see that Sue is actually human after all. (tell me her scenes with the sister dont break your heart)
God never makes mistakes. I've always believe that, and that's what keeps my machine going.
It keeps me going when my son's mother refuses to let me see my son (for the last 15 years) just because she found religion and her religion says that I'm an evil fire breathing homo snake.
It keeps me going everytime I hear people say
Kurt's version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" was simply amazing. I downloaded it about 3 hours ago and have listened to it nearly 50 times. Its been on repeat. It has been a while since I teared up over Glee but Kurt singing combined with those flashbacks was amazing. I liked how while people tried to push Kurt to believe in God, he still stuck true to what HE felt. They definitely handled the whole religion subject really well.
I absolutely loved this episode. The sensitive topic of religion was delt with in a respectful manner. Not all of us will share the same faith/ views but we have to remain tolerable. I absolutely adore Chris Colfer- he really deserves an emmy nod. As a firm believer in JESUS CHRIST i wasnt in no way form/ or shape offended by Kurt's insistence disbelief in God. It was realistic as people do exist gay or not that believe he doesnt exist and we still have to respect that and not force our beliefs on them. Mercedes singing was on point. I thought Puck's preformance was also great but seemed a little blan/ out of place. I'm actaully glad that Kurt's dad didnt awake from his coma shows that glee can be realistic. BTW last week episode was also good. Grilled cheezus made me cry, laugh and cry some more. Kudos to the writers! Gleek @ heart!
I felt like the biggest problem with this episode was that the emotional side & genuine questioning of religion/faith was so powerful that the joking cheapened it. As dumb as Finn is supposed to be, I don't believe he'd decide God was real but still start a prayer with Grilled Cheesus. He's not that dumb. By pushing the joke so far, I felt it took away from the great issues brought up by Sue & Kurt and the lessons on respecting someone's faith (or lack) without having to agree or believe in it.
I also was annoyed at the kids coming into the hospital room & singing their religious songs. I happen to believe in prayer, but when Kurt specifically asked them to respect that he didn't believe in God, they should have. If one of the girls had told Kurt they were still going to pray, because they believed in it, even if he didn't, I think that would be acceptable. But to go into the hospital room like that was wrong.
I've heard some mention that Kurt shouldn't have changed his
@Christie: some people really don't believe in God at all. So Kurt's story line was in no way disrespectful. It's just what he believes.
Overall, I thought the episode was very good. I liked how it led to a conclusion of tolerance, which is both practical and ideal. Not everybody is going to have the same beliefs and we shouldn't let that get in the way of anything. However, I do believe the episode pushed the sac-religious elements a little too much with Finn's storyline regarding the "grilled Cheesus."
I think this episode was really great. I have my own personal belief, which was talked about in the show, but I didn't felt ridiculed or mocked. I felt like they were trying to portray faith in a very respectfull way! Awesome job!!
Loved it! What a comeback after the disappointment that was last week's episode, IMHO.
I'm glad they didn't push any one agenda, but I felt there were some moments on both sides that were a little much. Finn's entire grilled cheese plotline was ridiculous, and Kurt's dismissal of religion was too far in the direction of being disrespectful. That said, Mercedes was fantastic, and the Burt storyline was heartbreaking.
oh and I loved Papa Can You Hear Me? sung by Lea. I love that song and it was another Barbara moment for Rachel.
I loved this episode. I am glad they had a real story line, and glad they didnt push one persons view on religion on the viewers. Well done
I loved when Mercedes song I look to you. I like that version more than I like Whitney Houston's.
