Glee > Glee Round Table: "On My Way" > Comments Page 2
I agree with ZERO...I watch Glee to be entertained and escape from daily life for an hour a week. I do like that they do handle tough topics and love that homosexuality is handled from alot of various perspectives, but this week I felt manipulated. I sensed something was up with Karofsky after watching "Heart", but I didn't expect the writers to hit us over the head in the next episode. I sat there watching and saying to myself "Is this Glee?"...I've been a soap opera fan all my life and this one episode had all the components of a bad day in soapland. I have to say it's turned me off from the show and I'm glad we have a 7 week hiatus. I'll be anxious to see if Glee goes back to it's original concept or starts crusading.
As much as I agree that tv shows don't work well as public service announcements, I do hope that the message regarding texting and driving hits hard, whether Quinn survives or not. It's already shocking to me that so many people, teens and adults, think it's fine to text and drive. So if this can shock some text-and-drivers into stopping this very dangerous behavior, I'm all for it.
Oh my goodness, I can't believe the ignorance that someone thinks you can get downs syndrome from a car crash?!! Ridiculous! Educate yourself PLEASE!
Quinn DOES survive as Dianna has been photographed on set so the reviewers or anyone else who thinks otherwise is wrong. She will be in a wheelchair (photos had her in a wheelchair with Kevin in his) but whether this is permanent or not is unknown (of course). Maybe in the crazy world of Glee they could throw a weird curveball and she's a ghost only Artie can see but that would be the crappiest idea EVER.
I'm pretty sure you can't get down syndrome from being in a car wreck. I mean, you have a wreck and sprout another chromosome? Not a funny comment when you have a family member with it.
Also, I'm glad they went with a side character for this. Overly-emotionally charged stories don't allow for the real message to be heard about teen suicide....yet another right thing they did. I agree with Lily; there was enough subtle build up.
Yes, they handled it well. I work in a school with teens that struggle with depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation. I'm a licensed clinician and have a certication in suicide prevention. They did it right: covered how mental health issues are contributing factors, impulsivity that can occur in teens, social media at play, did not show actual images of attempt...just leading to, and most importantly linked viewers to help by having a PSA from The Trevor Project. More general resources could've been given, but: Good job, Glee!
Even though everyone agrees that quinn will be killed off i think it's a bad way to write her off (if that is the case). yes, all her "loose ends are tied" but to have her work so hard to be in a good place and then to not let her live for those accomplishments seems too cruel.
"Matt: I've made it rather clear that I'm not a fan of Glee as a Public Service Announcement. I just want to watch Glee as an Entertaining, Humorous, Musical Hour of Television."
that's why I can't stand Matt. he's such an hypocrite.
Lack of build up to Dave's suicide attempt ? To be honest, the first time I thought he would eventually try to commit suicide was in Season 2, episode 6, after he kissed Kurt and later denied it. The feeling became stronger after he walked away from the Prom, all alone in Prom Queen.. Still season 2. And when this student Nick talked to him and Kurt in"Heart", the previous episode in this Season 3.... All I ever could think of was: " this is it, he is going to be gay bashed or he will commit suicide"... so the build up was there, for a minor character as Dave Karofsky.
If Sue can get pregnant then Q can survive her crash. But she shouldn't! :/ . That was a pretty hard hit, on her side. Like Chris said too, her character was 'ready to go'. She had tied up all loose ends. I hope her character does die. I don't know how I'd handle a paralyzed or down syndrome-Q. My prediction is first episode back, we're at Q's funeral.
I thought they handled the situation very well. It's something that you don't expect, and I thought that you had to look at the Dave storyline as a whole, not just in this season. From the episode before, we had a little inclin about what could happen.
I thought Stronger was the real standout performance as a whole. Of course, Cough Syrup was beautifully executed and Lea Michele never fails to please.
I do think they will kill Quinn off, and if they do, I dont think it will immediate. It's just a bit too un-Glee. We never know though- it would be an unexpected twist.
I just go along with the Sue moments. She reminds us I the comedy of the show, and it's quite an interesting storyline, although I suspect there will some complications - as always!
There should have been a few more episodes of him struggling with his manhood, so we could have gotten more from his character. It still was heartfelt but I think it was too cut and dry.
1. A tie between will having the circle with his students and Kurt and David in the hospital. The former was a throwback to how amazing of a teacher will can be. The latter was poignant in just how far the two characters have come.
2. Musically? None stood out.
3. I agree with Miranda and Chris. They did ok and Max Adler was exceptional but the lack of Dave and subsequent lack if buildup meant it wasn't as organic and polished as it should have been. But they still did ok.
4.yes. I hope she doesn't because the death of a main character could really be something,but I know she'll live.
5. Wtf! With whose uterus?! I'll have to suspend belief for many reasons but I love sue.
