But I really think you might want to resign from reviewing Glee. I see so many positive reviews from happy, up-beat reviewers who ignore all the show's flaws. Perhaps the Glee fans just want an optimistic, song happy reviewer.

The weird thing is, I think your criticisms of this episode are absolutely accurate. That said, I still found this episode more enjoyable than almost any other this season. Go figure.

And I haven't even watched the episode yet and I agree with everything you said about Sam and Mercedes. How can I root for them if I don't know them? Same applies to the other big guy.

Glee's big cast makes the show unique, but is also an extreme weakness.

GLEE SUCKS... GET OVER IT!

I've said this before. Glee has over 20 main characters unlike a normal cast with perhaps 6. Glee doesn't have time to develop its characters. On top of the fact they inject music perhaps (this is a guesstimate) 20 minutes of the show? I will give it 20-25 minutes of pure dialogue per episode. There just is simply NO time for any kind of individual character development, couples development (besides Finchel maybe), or group development. Some characters don't utter a word per episode, sometimes a sentence if it's a lucky day.

You're reviewing Glee like a normal show. While I agree with many of your points, this show is one where I turn off my brain and just enjoy the singing.

I haven't even watched this episode yet :P.

I was once a complete glee crazy. My roommate hated me and the constant glee music in the background. I've watched the first episode... a million and one times.
I have to say though, I completely agree with Matt. Glee started loosing me in the second season, and now I haven't even watched the last few episodes. If it was always just supposed to be a show about singing, then fine. But after a great first season with pretty good character development, Glee set a precedent that it seemingly can't live up to anymore.
On another note, I think you'd be hard pressed to find anyone qualified to write a good review about any recent Glee episode. I'm constantly reading horrible things in the press - it seems the majority agree with us.

@Steve i wasn't being complimentary towards you. The idea that a reviewer must love every episode, even when it's crap, is ridiculous

You are right. I hate it.

1. Glee is set in freaking OHIO. Where are they going to get a legit Spanish teacher in freaking OHIO. The one time they do find a good Spanish teacher they give him the job. Makes perfect sense.

2. Yes. I absolutely love Sam/Mercedes an want that Shane guy to jump into the pool with weights tied to his feet.

3. Who gives a crap about Sue.

And 4. I'll agree this episode was random and totally a filler but I still loved it. About time they had some Spanish music on Glee. It's not only gringos who like this show.

I seriously hate whoever does these reviews. Can we please have a fan of the show review. As "Kay" remarks, yes, I am going to hate this review because the reviewer just doesn't get it.

I'm honestly done reading reviews on this site because they're from someone who doesn't like the show. Goodbye, TV Fanatic.
