Glee > Glee Review: A Very Special Episode > Comments Page 4
@Matt: Nah, it's filled with lots of sarcasm. Sarcasm is fine, but use it a lot and you'll just come up as a mean hater. Just like your comment about AP standard. But I still love your TVD's and AHS's pieces so you're not exactly a horrible writer.
@Aquariuz (=liarsunited): You didn't think this review was filled with "positive criticism?" I mean... did you even read it?
As for the concept of professionalism, I'm not a hard news journalist. I'm a fan of television writing with my own voice. I don't aim to meet some AP standard, I write how I feel.
I do very much appreciate your readership and your comments, just now sure I see where either of those are coming from.
p.s. : From the bottom of my heart, Matt, please lose the "whatever" and "maybe you'll look forward to it, that's fine" attitude. It's really not professional and it makes you look like a lame hater. Try to construct a positive criticism rather than negative hates.
Hah. I have always wondered why the third place group is so happy when they're announced. Not even a sad face or a forced smile expression? Hilarious.
Other than that, "teen suicides" may feel like another PSA episode they forgot to tackle in Season 2 (alcohol, sexuality, etc), but I think Glee handled it with perfection. Chris Colfer and Max Adler are just excellent.
I understand the reviewer is just a hard-to-please guy when it comes to Glee. And I respect him for that.
Now I kinda hate that they cut down the brides fitting scene? The Faberry debate in the promo? And I feel like Quinn's cliffy will have been more touching if she hadn't given her blessings and on her way to crash the wedding. (Insert Message: Evil is Bad)
As for the performances, I feel like it's just a passing by moment. We know they're winning the Nationals at the end of Season 3. (It's about freaking time!). But I love Rachel's "Here To Us". Rachel's solo. Never disappointing!
Not here to argue. But just wanna state some things. First, I hate the reviewer. Second, I love the episode. Three, you can't always get what you want. Thanks.
It wasn't their best regionals episode.... the first and second season episodes were better but i like how they made a thrill of the whole thing. It was fun and emotional. The song were not the best,visually, their better suited for itunes than TV. Their performances lacked impact and somehow just made me snore. But I did like the emotional context of "Cough Syrup" and I also like the uniting emotional force of "Here's to us". "Stronger" was bleh! It lacked emotional context and the performance lacked some show choir flare. The "Fly" songs were nice to hear but was a mess to look at. The Warblers were good but they're better with Blaine, they're now like a boyband on the verge of breakup.I felt visually they lacked fire power. A little lack of directing here, maybe. But both songs where nice. As for the rest. They were fine and thrilling at the same time. Didn't give me chills that much. But Quinn's and Dave's Storylines brought me to the edge of my sit.
@Kyle, finally somebody that agrees with me. I've stopped reading Matt Richenthal's reviews a while ago (most of the time I only read the comments now) because all he ever does is trash the shows he reviews. I have nothing against constructive criticism but he's always writing the same things (Glee - Public Service Announcement etc). Unfortunately, he reviews so many great shows, so I prefer wetpaint now. :)
one last thing,
what is up with this 1000 characters limit to comments? is it sth new?
on the whole though i loved the ep, and i don't care what anybody says, Finn and Rachel should get married, they love each other and have been portraits as soul-mates from ep one season one. My grandad fell in love with my grandma when he was 15 and she was 13. they got married the minute she turned 18, their parents were against it so they eloped and it didn't make them happy that they had to do it behind their backs, they would much rather their parents supported them because they were still going to do it it would just be happier and easier later on. they are still together and they are my role models in the love life area. seriously, they know every trick in the book to a successful relationship and keeping romance alive.
See sometimes it is just RIGHT to follow your heart. i don't mean to say that every teen should follow their hormones and elope but sometimes it is real love. if it can happen in real life it sure as hell can happen in a tv show especially if it is glee.
btw, i think Quinn has a real chance at dying for real. how many NEAR death experiences can an episode have? they built it up with Dave but he survived so we still didn't experience that peek that we were lead to, i think she will die. at least that is what i would do if i was the screen writer. i really wish they will have the balls to do it, even though i don't wish death on any of the characters but i don't see any more stories for Quinn, that character used up all possible plots for herself and they have really hit a brick wall with her i believe.
i don't know if sb noticed this but is the Vamp judge Ian Brennan???
honestly kyle, if you don't like his review, write your own.
I loved this episode...it was a good one. When it showed that Karofsky wanted to hang himself, I cried. I'm so glad that he is okay, I didn't want him to die. I have grown to like him. When they showed Quinn driving near the end...I kinda knew she would get into an accident. Poor Quinn...hope she doesn't die. Overall, it was a good episode. Can't believe we have to wait till April 10th...I hate cliffhangers.
Hmm... it seems to me we need a new reviewer of Glee someone who actually enjoys watching the show to each there own but every week its a constant complaint of the show why continue to watch. Thought the show had a great beginning and a great ending the middle was typical regional stuff and thought they sounded great, I appreciated the growth of Sue this week even though she was pregnant it is the Sue that has a heart that I love!
Okay I loved the episode. Yes they had a lot crammed in it's hour time slot but that's typical. One episode is 48 pages because you have to take commercials into consideration. No one wants real life. What we want is real life situations exaggerated and that's what we got. How do I know? I am a writer and taking classes to better myself. Why is surprising that Sue is pregnant? She was looking for a donor. Rachel and Finn getting married it happens. As for Sebastian his father is a high profile person which means things can be swept under the rug. That does happen in real life. Things get put to the side and nothing ever happens to that person or they get a slap on the wrist because they are paid off.
Too much stuff, maybe. Awesome episode.
Frankly, I thought the whole thing was a mess, except for the Kurt/Karofsky hospital scene. Both these guys knocked it out of the park with their acting. Kudos to Kurt and Dave
Finchel has a stupid story line - and their parents even stupider. Will meanders on about his caring about his students, while one (Kurt) is emotionally falling apart right in front of him. Sebastian is now a Nobel Peace Prize winner because some guy he hardly knows tried to commit suicide? Never mind he never reacted when they guy he is crushing on had to have eye surgery due to his slushie. The songs were meh. Sectionals had everyone and was so much better. Quinn has become a roller coaster of bad, good, "don't text while driving" and Sue was just - Sue.
This episode was not at all what I was expecting.
I mean teen suicide and driver safety/potential death in one episode?
Saw the suicide from a mile off, the second he pulled out the belt.
Off topic, I can't help but find it funny that two weeks ago, there was an instant Smash craze on tv fanatic and quotes about how it got done in 1 episode that Glee couldn't do this entire season and it's rating have already fallen to that of Glee's. Hilarious.
A little too much drama for me in this episode. I always want my competition to be more about the club characters or atleast the main cast, not a side character, so focusing the episode on Dave caught me off gaurd and I think that left of balance for the rest of the episode. I wasn't invested in Dave's story. I did however love the other storylines, the one with Finn and Rachel and I'm loving Sue right now, someone's definitely spiking her Kool-Aid :). I know many may disagree but I'm loving what they're doing with Quinn, she probably gone through the most on this show and to see her redeem herself was amazing and how quickly things can take a u-turn(although I doubt Dianna's leaving the show). Speaking of u-turns, Sebastian's sudden attitude makeover was also lazy writing. As always loved the music.
Wow. Amazing episode! It was emotional and had me hating the commercial breaks even more than usual. I need to add my usual Kurt/Chris Colfer praise because the man is freaking brilliant in his role.
Back to this week's episode: again, I loved it. I FELT something while watching it, and that's what I want out of the shows I watch. 5/5 stars
@Matt, on one hand, I can agree with you that some of the storylines need more buildup beforehand before expecting a total OMG reaction out of the viewers. However, I think a lot of the emotion that comes out of some of the storylines comes from the fantasy aspect of it. We're given time between episodes to think about what happened and what's to come, but sometimes I find myself imagining the between moments. Like with Sam and Mercedes. That needed a lot more expansion than we were given, but during the breaks between episodes, I would think about them as a couple. Just the possibilities of what happened between them made me want Samcedes to be together. It doesn't excuse the fact that there wasn't any REAL buildup of those two, but it does help me understand how people could get so excited for a couple that we barely saw two minutes of.
urgh rachel acts like she's had a blow to the head. Kurt points out that she could wait like 2 years and she responds with don't be jealous? Yeah, coz every highschooler dreams of marrying a going-nowhere Lima kid right out of highschool. Couldn't they have had rachel/finn realise how stupid it was instead of having Quinn get in a car accident?!
Could Schue be more of a lame ass? Sometimes you have to actually DO something, you can't just let people run over you SIGH.
HA as if anyone would be googling finn hudsgon. he's a complete nobody.
I can't even mention that sue is pregnant. it's a storyline that is ridiculous beyond any others.
sour puss i loved this episode
i didnt cry in this episode, I actuelly expected that kind of an atempt suicide and hoped for that dave would return! funny how my small speculations came out like that in the episode. love rachels dads, but nothing in this episode made me tear up :(
and why do they say " to be continued" when this was the winter finally!!! now we are have to wait 10 years (a couple of weeks :P ) to see what happend :(
(sorry for my bad english)
Definitely in the "Very Special Episode" class. Honestly it just shows how truly schizophrenic the writing is for this show. And one PSA wasn't enough, we get a tacked on "W8 2 TXT" one also. It had some good moments (Karofsky and Kurt), but all of it was too heavy-handed. Sue's pregnancy is insane, the marriage is wackadoodle, it's all just a mishmash.
