Glee > Glee Review: Making a Comeback! > Comments Page 2
I was really and truly finished with Glee when they bombed just before the break. But I love Thriller and the football zombies made me try one more time. Thriller as an episode was ok-ish as far as story lines go but I really enjoyed the songs. Thriller/Heads Will Roll was amazing!!! Artie was a perfect choice and I like how they've combined Mike's dancing talents to his voice. Really well done. Also I loved Rachel and Puck's unexpected team up for Need You Now. I've always liked Mark Sailing's voice and combined with Lea, it was amazing. Love Songs was even better, they actually bothered with character development. I adore Kurt and Blaine together,seeing them in love and working like a normal couple does a lot to further gay rights while not being overly preachy. They also addressed the sudden Quinn and Finn Reunion, just their names together make me want to see them fail. Quinn likes the football star Finn was before Glee, she's reminiscing. Finn admits to being confused. Which is a
I'll be the first to say that I love Kurt, and I can't stand Bieber. However, I absolutely loved this episode. Kurt's absence was a little refreshing, and since the show is about NEW DIRECTIONS, it would make sense that he's not going to be in every episode anymore. Honestly, the Bieber stuff is getting made into a way bigger deal than it really is. When I heard they were doing him, I was disgusted. Then I listened to the covers, and I liked them. I watched the episode, and I loved it. In my opinion, they did a really good job of putting in things for both Bieber lovers and Bieber haters. I agree with the reivewer; this is how a tribute episode should be done: paying respects to the artist, but not shoving them in your face with no relevance to the plot. The hospital scene was beautiful. It was a really humanizing moment for Sue, but she still managed to have her sass with Will. :) I love the Rachel/Mercedes friendship, and how they realized that the diva-off was more fun than it was c
I agree with the reviewer on the Kurt character. The character is not fun or amusing (though I give the lederhosen incident full marks). I generally fast forward through his stuff. Nothing the character has ever said has inspired a laugh. I get that some get behind him, and great...I can't stand the character...and I am not a fan of Castrato singing either.
This ep was fun. The DivaOff was FUN! Two characters wanting to win, and then finding that they are both just having fun...THAT'S what made me watch this show. Sue doing a number was FUN. The "Brittney steals a trend" moment was FUN! This episode reminded me why I started watching the show in the first place. And little hope messages popping up. Kids in the Wards. Walk away comments that make you realize you are pretty special...That's a cool show....
...and they worked that Quinn "You Had Me At Hello." gaze into the ground this ep. I'd pretty much fist fight a buffalo to get one of those gazes thrown my way.
Where to begin.......
First of all, I don't like that Glee is still relying on what's hip at the moment as a draw for their episodes rather than a storyline. Glee's unforgettable First 13 episodes was a perfect example of a musical brought to TV. There was a storyline and the producers dug through all manner of different genres, eras and artists to weave fitting songs into it. Not every episode was "The Britney Spears Episode" or "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" that utimately did nothing but add popular songs to the Glee iTunes Library.
The last two episodes before tonight were improvements over the rest of Season 2, I have to admit. Vast improvements. I wasn't being forcefed Kurt's sob story (although I adore Kurt's character) and the show actually entertained me again. That said, I didn't hate this latest episode. Wasn't a fan of it, but didn't hate it.
What I did like:
Rachel is returning to form. She's being self-centered, strong-willed and stubborn but without making me
I agree with everything in that review except the things about Bieber and Kurt. Funny, i hate Bieber, didn't like songs and they really didn't stand out. I much preferred every other song in episode but the two Bieber songs. He really isn't all that talented to me.
And i absolutely love Kurt. He doesn't suck the fun out of every scene. I think when it comes to the not so fun scenes with him, with the whole bullying thing with Karofsky, its not Kurt sucking the the fun. And he is such a cute, lovable character who i personally think is the best on the show next to Sue. I just don't get the vibe this reviewer gets about him sucking fun out of scenes. I don't see it. And i don't agree.
also-- I was veryy uncomfortable watching Sue slam kids into the lockers, etc. ... I was not amused ://
Some really great and truly horrible moments in this episode. Can't stand Justin Bieber and even with Chord Overstreet singing the songs i couldn't look past the fact that the songs are terrible to begin with.
Loved the Rent duet! Lea and Amber totally nailed it.
Excited to see what they come up with as an orginal song for regionals.
Really missed Kurt. Episode sucked!
Plus, Kurt is a Mary Sue. Is that what makes Glee a good show?
Why does everybody miss Kurt? It's not like Emma, Terri or Burt appear in every episode, and pretty much EVERY episode focuses on him. There are other characters out there that still need their chance to shine, like Tina!
I love Glee, even like the episode, but I hate Justin Biebber with a passion. Though the songs were cute when sung by a guy like Cord Overstreet or the other Glee guys.
aside from the line "sponge hair, square chin", & the 'Rent' duet, I suffered thru watching this episode :/
LOVED THIS EPISODE!!
Justin Beiber has NEVER sounded this good! :)
But I really miss Kurt.
If they could drop the bullying crap and just focus on HIM and not his GAYNESS it's be so much better.
I miss his singing :(
The only good thing about this episode was Rachel, as it has been the last three episodes. And still, the episode is a serious downgrade over the last one.
Mercedes proved at the end that she's a terrible friend. Santana's first few jokes about Sam's mouth were funny, after they kept running with it and her stupid "wants" lines, I just wanted her to shut up. Lauren Zizes does nothing for me and the only reason I'm tolerating that story line is because Mark Salling is actually stepping up and is bringing some great comedic timing to his lines.
I hate how people give Brittany a pass when she's being really mean because she's a complete moron. The more her character speaks, the more I dislike her. Seriously, I was kind of over her by the end of the second episode of the season.
Finn is a useless coward. Stand up for Rachel in PUBLIC. Tell her she's beautiful in PUBLIC. Don't break up with her for cheating and then turn around and do the same, conveniently forgetting that you d
No Kurt is not a good thing.
I thought it was good overall, but the hospital scene was too much. They need to get a better handle on Will and Sue... Check out my full review here.
I loved this episode very much!
I laughed so hard when santana was talking to sam and when lauren sung! I really like the way this is going, and finn being supportive of rachel is good too. Sam and Quinn breaking up is also a good thing. But immediatly moving on to santana is stupid, teenagers are all about quik romances but this is way to fast!
I love this episode!
I miss Kurt and his voice is on the level with Rachel so having him not sing for 4 episodes has been too long for me. Enough Blane! And always Mr. Nice guy Finn is slowing turning into a whining weazel,hope he can get back on track soon and Good Golly what are the writers doing to Santana ? At least Sue has been allowed to show,at times some humanity and heart, not Santana she is a bitch and not in a good way! It is getting very hard to like her character at all. I am very pleased the writers are showing Lauren to be so comfortable with herself and with a strong personality. That is a GREAT message !
I think you are way too hard on Kurt, and by extention Ryan Murphy. Not all gay men have an "agenda". Ryan Murphy saw a need to creste a storyline about bullying because gay bashing in particular was in the news. He has the proper audience and forum to do that. He does not just comment on gay bullying, he addresses all bullying. They all get teased and slushied for being "losers". This was just a hot topic at the time and a sorely needed topic of discussion.
Kurt was originally cast as a comic relief character. Ryan Murphy actually created the role for him after Chris's audition. Comic relief characters are suppose to be scene stealers. The fact that Chris can act out dramatic scenes as well is a credit to the actor.
Finally, this is an ensemble cast. It has a lot of characters and they do an excellent job at including everyone. Being happy that there was no Kurt in the episode is like being happy there is no cheese on a pizza. The pizza tastes better because of the ing
I respect completely that you're not happy about the bullying storyline, I do not agree, but of course you're entitled to your own opinion. Please, don't get me wrong, I'm in no way trying to make you (or anyone else in this forum) enjoy the bully storyline even if I do. I'm just pointing some observable facts that make me think that the statement you made on your review about Kurt killing the fun is not accurate.
Although I must say that Silly love songs had nothing to do with the bullying storyline and although Kurt got rejected it could hardly be described as a dramatic storyline, since both Blaine and Kurt were really graceful about it. Actually it showed the viewers the "good friend" side of Kurt not only with Blaine but with Rachel and Mercedes. But I digress.
I find important to point out also that it’s been 3 (maybe going into 4) episodes since Kurt got a solo. On the episode 2X10 he got one speaking scene, (then a 2 months hiatus), 2x11 one speaking sce
FAVORITE EPISODE EVER!
Now can they bring back Sunshine Corazon!
Lauren and Puck are both hilarious. And their conversations too.
Love Rachel and Mercedes.
Quinn deserved it. Can't stand her behavior. So much is forgiven to her just because she is pretty?
@Cielo: Valid points and I respect your opinion, but regarding this comment of yours:
"Chris Colfer has the ability to NEVER melt into the background, his facial expressions and reactions on every scene he is in are hilarious."
That's part of my problem. Every time Kurt is in an episode, the episode feels entirely about him. I can't help but be turned off these days due to how poorly I think the show handled the bullying topic. Colfer is amazing, without a doubt, but it's not a coincidence in my mind that I so thoroughly enjoyed an episode that didn't feel bogged down by his drama.
I wasn't trying to make some grand, 34-episode-encompassing statement. I'm talking about the show THESE DAYS. And, these days, I'm sick of Kurt.
Ok, I know I'm taking the risk of sounding like a teenage girl here, but "Kurt sucks the fun out of every scene"? Really?
I mean I know a lot of Kurt's storylines are serious, you don't enjoy it (although I do), I get that. However, as someone else has already commented here, Kurt is a lot more than that. Actually this whole serious bullying thing took, what 3 maybe 4 episodes? Kurt has had WONDERFUL moments such as "Bad romance", Rose's turn", "Le jazz hot", "Happy days", amongst others. Chris Colfer has the ability to NEVER melt into the background, his facial expressions and reactions on every scene he is in are hilarious. For example: the vogue video, the gap attack, his audition to ND, he watching the football game, his interactions with Holly Holliday. Colfer has the ability to make us laugh even when he has no lines. Not to mention he has a lot of memorable one liners. During "Silly love songs" Kurt was graceful, not over dramatic, funny and endearing. So you take these 4 bully
