Glee > Who Will Be The Glee Prom King and Queen? > Comments Page 3
Wow, that reminds me so much of Buffy... That bully that always messed with Xander, picked on people. Then Xander had to question him (I think it was the episode with the swim team turning into fish) and the bully thought Xander was telling him he was gay. So he came out as well.
Who exactly is this regular extra on Glee "Nicole Crowther"? I have tried to find one single image of her on the Web and nothing. No facebook account, no pictures, nothing. Why would an actress have NO pictures of herself of the Internet? Very strange- could this all be a giant publicity stunt by the producers of Glee? If anyone finds a legitimate picture of her, please post.
nicole fucking crowther
C'mon guys chill! i speak english a second language and even with that i understood that "portrayed" was about they might be presenting the character so far, maybe they should start giving some more clear hints about Dave's life story.
Even tho the writer should be more careful with the words he chooses, don't you see it, in a good or bad way everyone is paying attention to this character, and if they weren't after reading this they will, thats part of it.
Max is a great actor, he manages to handle such an emotional performance in a great way, it shouldn't be easy for anyone that is repressing feelings, o just sexually confused, and he is managing that un a amazing way, he makes us feel sorry, love and hate Karofsky.
As i see it, they prom voting would be involved with Sue and one of her twisted plans, in movies almost every time we see these kind of things is meant for the "pretty/evil ones" or as a cruel joke to someone, and from my point of view the ideal conflict they w
For the last time, Kurt and Karofsky being voted as prom queen and king is meant to be a cruel prank, and not because of their popularity.
And no, they're not changing the storyline.
while I agree that kurt and karofsky as king and queen is a stupid idea, I heard after she tweeted that, they refilmed all the prom scenes and it has a different outcome now anyways. not sure if that's true, but I hope it is....
and @kcd: he's transferring back in the next episode.
just hope, the writer storyline should be sort of in the real world... not impossible one..
ur right, its should me finn or puck and quinn or brittany..
The thing that annoys me is how...unrealistic this is. I know Glee tries to be different, but in reality Finn or Puck would be prom king, with Quinn or Brittany being prom queen. One thing that has been irritating this season is how much attention Kurt gets. I applaud Colfer's acting and singing chops, but I've grown resentful of the fact that he always plays the victim, and not fairly so. In season one he wasn't as annoying because he was a secondary character who I sympathized with. Now he always gets a storyline and acts haughty, especially with his father. And being prom queen? Just silly.
Um, Kurt can't be Prom Queen. He doesn't go to that school anymore...
What the hell? What about Blaine?
Matt, you should have known better. 'Badly WRITTEN' wouldn't have allowed for ANY confusion, by saying 'poorly PORTRAYED' it's clearly open for interpretation. Don't blame other people for your error in language.
I don't know your job title but you're clearly a writer here so if you wish to be understood clearly when stating an opinion you cannot leave room for basic mistakes like that.
Probably because you used the word "portrayed" and not "written," for starters.
@chill_peeps: Thank you for seemingly being one of the only people to read the entire post. I had just written how the show has portrayed the character poorly and I linked to a previous editorial that explained why.
I was absolutely referring solely to Karofsky and how Glee has bungled the bullying storyline. I don't see how anyone read this as a reference to Max Adler, but I apologize for any confusion.
Actually, is this really such a surprise though? I mean, we all knew Kurt would be Prom someone- there was no way Ryan wasn't going to make him a star. So really, it's no big deal. I'm actually sort of disappointed, as I was hoping Rachel would get it after Jacob Ben-Israel rigged the votes or something.
@chill_peeps, I admit that maybe we are a little overreacting but you have to understand that we come from a fandom that hate this character, with reasons of course 'cause he isn't redeemed right now. The problem is that this hate doesn't stop there but it is transferred even on his fans, on people that want to see him redeemed. Do you know that some of us even receive death threats over a f-ing tv show?! This storyline is powerful and important, even if I totally agreed with the author in his other article about the fact that this isn't a storyline Glee should have touched and used to send a message. (I watch Glee for fun not to learn something. I think that this is one of the reason Dave is saw like a monster when he is just a scared child, 'cause his storyline, his bullying is the only one took seriously on Glee, and that's is not ok. Rachel sent Sunshine in a crack house where she could have died but that's forgiven and forgot.) However lately people stop talki
Oh and I'm not convinced Dave is going to sing 'Born This Way', the clips we've seen I can't see him on stage with the other kids. Mercedes seems to be lead vocals (rightly) too. Unless he's somewhere in the background I don't think he does feature in that performance.
Max Adler is a good actor, he's been played Dave really well, I think that's the common consensus. If you meant his character is 'poorly WRITTEN' or simply unlikeable then that's one thing (that I also don't agree with) but saying 'poorly PORTRAYED' is insulting Max and his acting.
I'm saddened that Kurt will be made queen to mock him but hope he will turn it around and shove it in the faces of those who arranged it (how many bullies must their be to do that anyway, unless all the votes are switched?).
I find it unrealistic though that Dave would be voted king though, is he really that popular (never comes across on the show that he is)?
I'll trust it's handled well (till I actually see it), it's a shame this person had to spoil the plot (they won't be asked back to the show again) but I can only blame myself for reading it too.
@sonia - My comment wasn't referring to you, since you do actually acknowledge in your post that the writer could have been referring to the series, not the actor. (Though I don't think it's the writer's fault if some readers lock in on only one out of several meanings of a word. Especially when there's a context.) Rather, my comment was referring to the other two pages of comments that freak out about the "hack writer" with "no hope" writing a "biased" and "one-sided" article on a "crappy website." And "STFU"? What civilized person says that? Those comments are undeserved, and far more mean-spirited than the original blog post ever was.
Again, the writer uses the term "poorly-portrayed" a mere two sentences after "...how the series has portrayed..." (emphasis mine). Poorly-portrayed - not poorly-acted, poorly-played, etc. A "portrayal," much like a "depiction," can be done through words and pictures as well as through writing. Basic reading comprehensio
If anything is poor here, it's this article and the writer's obvious bias. Dislike the character of Karofsky all you want, but transferring that hate to the actor who portrays the character is ridiculous. If you want to debate his acting abilities or write a review of how Max Adler plays his character, please do so, but leaving silly and bitter comments at the end of your article is just childish.
"Can't say I'm too excited to see more of this poorly-portrayed character."
Whoa, whoa, wait. I think your opinion is really biased here. Okay, so you don't like Dave Karofsky's character as a bully, and that's understandable. But calling the character /poorly played/? Have you ever payed attention to his acting? Or have you even /watched/ Glee? Because if you have watched it before, you will see the emotions that swam on Max Andler's face. It is, darling, one of the best acting that Glee has. His emotions are rich and quite evident, but you can see how he was trying to repress all the feelings like a real person going through such things would have. Max Adler is a great actor, poppet. And by saying such things, the one you are dissing is Max Adler, /not/ Dave Karofsky.
Sheesh, I'm not a professional and I can give better judgement than you.
@chill_peeps, the author of the post is clearly referring to the writing and storyline, not the acting. Like I said, poorly-worded. I'm not english but when I read 'portrayed' I think of the actor not the writers. And It's had Karofsky all homophobic-homophobic-homophobic BOOM singing Born This Way First of all you all are forgotting that this isn't going to happen tonight but in two and four episodes from now. And you have no idea what is going to happen. So yeah maybe then we'll find out it's been rushed but don't you think that we should see it before criticize and complain? And second we are not even sure if he is singing! And for how much we, his fans, want to hear him sing even some of us have some doubts about the choice of the song but we are waiting to actually see it. and prom king with a male prom queen. Again I'm not American so I don't know wxactly how Prom works but from what I know Prom King usually isn't the most caring and
"It's had Karofsky all homophobic-homophobic-homophobic BOOM singing Born This Way and prom king with a male prom queen."
1) Let's wait before the episodes actually AIR before we judge them. So far Karofsky's storyline has been handled well.
2) The prom vote is meant to be mean. Karofsky's date for the prom is Santana, so he's still closeted.
Wow...everyone needs to calm down. Try to read more than one sentence at a time, yeah? A couple of lines up, it's "I've questioned how the series has portrayed the bullying student..." So, take the last sentence in context - the author of the post is clearly referring to the writing and storyline, not the acting. And can you really defend the writing? It's had Karofsky all homophobic-homophobic-homophobic BOOM singing Born This Way and prom king with a male prom queen.
Um, I don't know what show YOU'RE watching, but the one I'm watching pretty much confirms to me all the time that Max Adler has more talent in one perfectly arched eyebrow than it took to write the biased piece. I may be wrong, but I'm fairly certain that the way you wrote this article is not only entirely unprofessional, it is also an insult to someone who's current role is changing lives and points of views. I am not sure where you get off insulting someone you obviously have not taken the time to research or get to know, but this piece of drivel you've written is laughable.
