Glee > Glee Review: "Funeral" > Comments Page 2
I thought about that as well, that being Jesse's reaction. You know, it probably will be something involving Quinn.
Definitely one of the better episodes written this year. The characters have always been written so inconsistently that it was nice to see some depth of character that wasn't totally out of left field. Sue was amazing (and yeah, I had a really painful knot in my throat the whole episode and then finally broke down when Sue hugged Becky). Will is getting on my nerves and I'll never forgive him for saying no to Becky. Never. Quinn has so much potential as a complex character but she has been written so poorly! Great moments for Rachel and Mercedes. Kurt is too over-the-top stereotypically flambouyant that he is getting hard to watch (I skipped his song). Finn is a douche. Jesse also a douche and I can't tell if his character actually works or not.
My first thought about NY was that Quinn is going to try to stay there to model or start over or something. Then with the "scripted" line I though Quinn had a wardrobe malfunction on stage! That would be crazy!
The end of m the episode was a little out of tone in one minutes they're crying at a funeral and the next they are the choir room like nothing happened. They could have put the funeral more towards to end and made that part longer.
When Sue started to cry i cried too. This reminds me of when my teatcher died after fighting cancer for four years. And our school board decided not to tells us she had passed away untill the day we would start fifth grade. Anyway they forgot to tell hier nephew to not say anything and he told us and we found out the day before or last day of fourth grade. The last time i saw her was in april of that year and i didn't had the chance to attend her funeral. Instead i stayed in my class room watching the wall clock reach the hour of her cremation finishing all my chances of saying goodbye. Her birthday was ten days after her death on june 25th; i wished i could have say goodbye to her or that she could could live to see her 51th birthday; like that she could have gone to our 4th grade graduation and see her last bach or babies finishing that chapter. I'll never forget what she did for me; i wouldn't be writing this if it hadn't benn for her since she was the woman who taugh me to read and
"She's dificult but boy can she sing BRAVO" you took my words away Kurt.
"Jean always stood up for you whenever i told her your hair was evil." sad but still funny.
How can Jesse be that pecky? Mercedes was mind blowing!!!
"I gotta hit the little boys room..." i do hate jesse....
I loved the vocals in back to black and Kurt's number. I thought he was really funny.
Rachel and Mercedes gave me goosebumps with their songs they were so good. I can honestly say i cried my eyes out during this episode and i am not a cryer, so well done glee.
Keep Finn! Get rid of Jesse, and let's hope Finn and Rachel get back together. They're a good couple. I think Finn is a great actor and a great singer.
Really loved it o_o it was so sad! I cried! And I'm psyched to see what Quinn has up her sleeves! And poor Finn :(
And I love Kurt and all, but I feel like he needs to try some different styles in music... I know it's his character and all, but I feel like he'd do really well with some other styles of songs (kind of like what he had been doing with the Warblers... AKA more mainstreamy not broadway-only stuff)!
I haven't cried this much... in so long! I was beginning to think I'd turned into Sue! Gutted they bumped off Jean, she was Sue's heart, her true emotional and caring link. But maybe the Becky and Sue's relationship can move in that direction now, after all she does remind her of her sister.
Worried about Quinn's plans for NYC, can't help thinking she's going to throw a spanner in the works. I've seen a fair few season finales now and that just reaks of something not good to me! I was kind of hoping they would pick a lead vocalist though... only because Amber Riley's rendition of Try A Little Tenderness was outstanding! How can they show Jonathan Groff uttering "wow" and then have Jesse St Sucks saying she was lazy... know it's only a show but please, CONSISTENCY?!!
Oh, and this episode missed one thing... DARREN CRISS! ♥
IMO it was really not a good episode. It was so boring. I'm not heartless but the funeral was just so away from the general plot that it was not even interesting. I don't get what the writers are trying to make with Sue but, it's getting worst and worst.
When you have Lea Michele, Jonathan Groff and Mark Salling in the cast, you should show more of them (Puck didn't even say a word this week). What saves yesterday episode? St Berry kiss and Finn realising that he loves Rachel. They should try to focus more on relationships and not on filler inconsistent subplots.
This is not a review, but I have to add because it was so weird: I just happened to have a DVD of Alan Parker's 1991 Irish movie, The Committments (based on the novel by Roddy Doyle) cued up to the band's rendition of "Try A Little Tenderness" paused in the background while watching this episode, so when Mercedes sang it, instantly got to compare her version to The Committments. Sorry Mercedes, I love you the most, but The Committments' leads singer, Andrew Strong, the (at the time) 16 year-old with the Tom Waits style pipes totally elevated that song to a whole other level. He would've blown Jesse right out the back door to leave him scratching his moppy head in the parking lot! There's a lot of swearing (A LOT)in this otherwise delightful story about a group of working class kids trying to elevate their situations through "Dublin Soul" music - but true fans of Glee should watch this movie. Very much the same spirit.
PLEASE MAKE JESSE A REGULAR, he is amazing...so much more fun and a much better singer than Finn. Actually, Puck and Jesse are my favorite males in the show.
Am I the only one who thinks that brittany and jesse should be together? It would be awesome because what they both say never makes any sense...
I finished watching this episode 10 minutes ago. I dried my eyes and opened this page to write my review.
Before I started, I read Chris O´Hara´s review - and now I can´t write, because everything I wanted to say has already been written. Thank you Chris, you took the words right out of my head, and all I want to add is: Glee, what will I do when you go on hiatus?
I think the solos were supposed to be bad so that Mr. Shue would decide that they should work together as a team for the competition. Very touching episode, though.
I hope Quinn's mysterious plans have something to do with Beth. I would love to see her again.
Glee continues to be the most cynical exercise in pandering that television has ever seen. Twenty years from now, we'll all look back and gasp that anyone ever thought it was any good.
WOW that is all I can say. I love the show, and have followed it
from the start. If Sue does not get an Emmy for this, noone deserves it more. The whole cast was wonderful and it had me crying at thinking the love and interest that was put into the funeral by the kids even though Sue was mean to them. This is respect and kindness like I have ever seen. Everyone needs to see this show. What we look like on the outside is not what is in the heart. Stop and think about that. Can't say enough about it.
I cried when Sue and Becky hugged. Sue got the 10 seconds she wanted. Oh so very touching
This was the best show ever, the singing the worst yet, but that funeral that Kurt planned had me boo hooing all over the place. It was nice to finally see a vulnerable side for a change. It made her more human. Maybe she will stay that human for a little while. Ultimately she will go back to her horrible witch persona, otherwise she won't make the show as good as she has so far. I am looking forward to the last episode and the great singing coming back. Go Glee, I am a true Gleek
Wait; who died?
