It would be awesome if he would go to Mckinley, because I am so curious what Blaine wears if he doesn't need to wear a uniform...


But, really you're completely missing the point: DARREN CRISS IS A SUPERHERO :D I really didn't think it was possible for him to get more awesome


@Zandrew Don't really understand what you're so angry about...Blaine could easily have appeared for one guest episode, as plenty of characters have previously, and then not returned.
Glee's production team seem very keen to keep in synch with their fans and definitely monitor their reactions to all the shows events, combined with their own vision for the show which has lead to Darren and others having a permanent role next season. (it's called Target Marketing ;)
Also, Darren has admitted to not having watched EVERY episode because he doesn't have a TV. It's possible to appreciate a show and the fanbase it has built up for itself without fanatically, obssessively watching and re-watching every episode. Its really irrelevent how many episodes he's seen. Darren naturally embodies Glee showing how perfect he is for the show despite not having seen all of it.
Darren's too busy living Glee rather than just watching it.

@Zandrew: Not sure where your antagonism stems from, but Criss is actually straight.


he's such a liar, he knew what he was taking on when he auditioned, there's no way a gay teen could be on television without them being idolized by the gay community. also, he's a liar because he used to say that he was "such a big fan of the show" in his interviews and now he's saying that he'd only seen them in passing.

I love Darren. He is amazing! However, I would like to see him in New Directions, so the glee club can have all the best players for Nationals next season.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.


[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
