Not surprised for Finn and Rachael marriage but happy for Quinn's come back. I'm Hoping that Artie will take care of Quinn very well.
Glee doesn't have any balls. They should have killed Quinn off. This episode should have been about dealing with the loss of a friend instead of being about "Don't text and drive".
Rachel will feel guilty for stealing Finn away from Quinn before she died so she would call the engagement off, Santana will feel guilty for shunning her for the last year, Puck will be sad as hell because of how close they were, and everyone would be mourning her death.
Instead, we got this dumbass episode that was all over the place. They don't know how to write individual episodes. It ended on a cliffhanger of a Rachel-and-Finn discussion that had nothing to do with the rest of the episode. Whatever, I never expect good writing from Glee anyway. Only good songs. I liked the "Somebody" cover.
Oh, I'm so glad I don't watch Glee on a regular basis - all this bitching and moaning from "fans" would totally drive me nuts.
Matt Bomer is the only reason I watched this episode and he was hilarious as Cooper Anderson. It was great that he had this chance to showcase his comedy and musical talent. The sibling rivalry was very real - Blaine thinks Cooper always looks down on him, but in reality Cooper is just afraid that little brother will be better than him. I'm glad they found a way to work together on the audition at the end - and I hope Cooper gets the role as Deputy Roscoe :-)
(continuing from my last comment that got cut off)...approach on sensitive topics have been the most tasteful I've seen on any show. So kudos, Glee!
Spoilers have been out,so not much was surprising. But I LOVED the episode. Matt Bomer played his character so well that I really wanted to smack him. Blaine's and Quinn's story lines were great. Senior skip out at Six Flags was a good idea. And as someone who's been in recovery from an accident, I wish I had someone like Artie mentor me just as he did with Quinn.
Not sure how I take the negative comments on how they dealt with Quinn's aftermath (about her only having the wheelchair to indicate that she'd been in an accident), but coming from someone who'd been in a bad accident before, it's not IMpossible to still have your face while the rest of your body is messed up (just saying). Song choices were good (I could agree with you all about Blaine's "Stronger," but every person's entitled to their song choice in times of venting so I'm not about to judge it.
As for the people's constant disappointment with the show, while some of Glee's storylines can fall short sometimes, their appr
Good episode altogether. LOVE Matt Bomer, he was so good, he really got us to hate the character. I was glad to see there was continuity in the storylines, which is something we haven't seen on Glee in a long time. The songs were good, but it's been a long time since we heard a solo from Rachel or Finn. I miss them and the duets they used to perform together...
So, in recent Glee history, I've been really frustrated with inconsistent writing and no continuity or believability. Anyway, in many ways this episode was a great comeback in my opinion, but... they've just made a hot mess of Quinn Fabray. It's so much that she survived, but the fact that there was practically no time spent on her accident, and not a single cut or bruise to be seen. The last we've seen is her in what seems to be a fatal accident, and LITERALLY the next thing we see is, "oh yeah, she's fine, she's just going to be in the wheelchair for a little while"? And are we to believe that not even one tiny piece of glass nicked her face, or anywhere else on her?
Yeah, I find that Quinn being in a wheelchair is disappointing too. She really should've died. Not saying I don't like the character, but her storyline was closed and she had become a cheerleader and got in Yale. Oh well. We know Quinn will walk again because we already have Artie!
Since when does Finn want to go into a pool cleaning business? Huh? That's a smart idea Rachel should support? "Sure Honey, why don't us 17 year olds get married then move to LA where I can give up all my dreams and support your absolute career failure :)". Rachel should go to NY and Finn should stay in Lima, I always picture him as the one who doesn't make it out. Sorry...
Also, didn't like the guest star. This episode should've focused more on Quinn. And Finchel. Guest star didn't really aide the story in any way. Plus, I almost started shipping incest TWICE during the episode and had to remind myself. They were singing romance songs.
Did anyone notice that they went to six flags when there is none in Ohio and the closest one is a few states away?
Matt Bowmer was very funny as was Sue and Nini. The rest was lame. I rate this episode a C. The music Fighter was not good. Far from Glee standards. I liked Up Up Up. Not a fan of Someone I used to Know anyway-rather dull. The Duran song was not the best and I love Duran Duran. So as my opinion goes Blaine as good a singer as he is did not do the songs justice in this episode. It fell flat as a pancake with no syrup-dull as cardboard. sorry, I love Glee but have to agree with many that this season is just OK but IMO much better than season 2. Have to say that s1 is and will always be the best.
I didn't notice much about the episode because I was too distracted with the 8th wonder of the world that is the breathrakingly gorgeous and supremely talented Matt Bomer. And the irony that Blaine of all people felt robbed of attention. I thought it was solid.
whenever there is a spinal injury, even if the prognosis is good, things don't always go as planned. Bill, I think Artie was trying to get Quinn to see both sides of the situation, yes she will prob walk again, but what if she doesn't, or what if it takes a lot longer than she thinks. Nationals is only a few monthes away, with that kind of injury, it may take a lot longer. He doesn't want her to get her hopes up, only to fail and be miserable. I think thats what that scene was supposed to push.
There are several TV shows I like to comment on (yes, I know - I need to get a life) and I think that Glee takes first prize when it comes to the most negative comments from it's "fans." Having said that, I have to admit I have been been somewhat disappointed in this season, but I thought this episode was one of the better ones lately. Regarding the comment about it not being made clear that Finn and Rachel didn't get married, it was. There was a conversation between them in the hallway at the beginning of the episode where they talked about not get married.
However, there was one point that I thought was confusing. Quinn told everyone that the doctor said her paralysis was only temporary and that with therapy she had an excellent change of walking again. But Artie tells her she is basically kidding herself and has not faced the reality that she will probably never walk again. Huh? So which is it? Is Quinn lying about the doctor's prognosis or is Artie the one not facing reality and
What was up with Sue's terrible padding this episode?!
One minute she had none at all and then the next camera angle (not even next scene which you could feebly excuse as the baby shifting position) she had a massive bump right under her boobage.
The costume folk on this show are getting worse (and I thought it was bad at the comps when they were teaming ankle socks with kitten heels and the other one with hefty workman boots with pretty dresses).
Was it too much to decide on her gestation and give her ONE appropriate pad for the WHOLE episode? It's not as if her clothes are that different to incorporate (she only wears tracksuits, and the only differences in them are the colours)!
my comment got cut off...I meant to say that I do think Quinn should have had more bumps and bruises and abrasions from the accident, but having worked in a hospital, I did see people who had been "t-boned" in car accidents come out with spinal injuries and broken bones, but still live. I took care of one guy who crashed his airplane and broke nearly every bone in his body, so he was in a body cast, but he lived. People survive car-truck accidents all the time, its not that unbelievable. And I LOVED "Crip Skip" day with Artie and Quinn!
It would appear that I am in the minority here with Charmed-Jenna in really enjoying this episode and loving Glee as a show. But then, I am a huge fan of Darren Criss, who I think is this generation's Gene Kelly, and Matt Bomer is perfectly gorgeous and wonderful at playing his big brother (I am a big fan of White Collar, too). The two of them singing "Someone That I Used to Know" and the Duran Duran mash up was awesome! And as for it being "unbelievable" that high school students would hang on every word of a bad actor who gives them advice, we had an actor who worked in local theater groups come and talk to us when I was in high school in Iowa, and though 30 years later I realize he was a complete crackpot with totally ridiculous advice, at the time, when I was a high school kid, I fell for everything he said, and believed he was wise, talented and that his advice was brilliant! High school kids can be gullible and easily conned, folks. I do think Quinn should have had some more bump
I would just like to start out by saying WOW. A review of Glee that hasn't left me shaking in anger at all the totally one-sided and pointless vendetta against EVERY SINGLE LITTLE DETAIL! 100 points to the new change I'm loving already.
Getting to the episode, I really enjoyed it. Quinn's storyline was touching and funny in all the right places. I think it's also opened the way for some interesting scenes with Quinn and Artie later on as well.
Then Cooper. Oh Cooper lol. Yes he was extremely over the top but that's what made it funny! Everything he had an opinion about (which really, was everything) was so ridiculous and hysterical! And an added bonus was that Blaine got more character depth than just being Kurt's arm candy.
My only complaint is the invisible Finchel quota that the writers seem to think they need to fill. Honestly, ONE episode. Is it too much to ask that they take the FURTHEST backseat for ONE episode?
This episode only confirms that Rachel Barry is STILL the obnoxious pain in the butt she's always been. Through out the past few years most of the characters have gone through some sort of "high school change" Puck stopped bullying, Santana has mellowed down a bit with her bitchiness, Quinn stopped being crazy, Sam stopped being a dork, even that Sugar girl stopped being mean. Rachel showed at the end of the episode that all she cares about is her own needs and acted so insensitive to Finn's plans. You think that she would change at this point. I apologize for any Rachel fans but I say how I watched.
Please bring back MATT to write the Glee reviews. No offense but at least he was honest! 4.6/5!? Really? It's fine that you enjoyed Somebody That I Used To Kmow at the end, I did too, but the episode was terrible. It should've been focused on just Quinn and her recovery but once again Glee made the episode all about the random guest star of the week. Terrible show, terrible review.
Josh: "However, if you have been watching over the last season and a half or so, the show has taken on a more serious tone with "ridiculous" plot lines"
I don't disagree. I've been a fan of the show since the first episode, but not of every episode. I believe I also described frustration with the current trend of PC'ing and socially-significant preachiness. At its best the show is better without complex, multi-episode story lines and better to stick with general silliness, pithy dialog, and gags setting up mega-production numbers. More sparkle and flash, less pretending to be a social commentary or work of literature.
Overall, I thought it was a good episode, but I think some of the writing is just getting sillier and sillier every week. I keep tuning in because I think "Maybe this week, it'll be a great episode" and I don't wanna miss it. But that hasn't happened in a while. I'm hoping they win Nationals this year so I can stop feeling compelled to watch.
No offense to Dianna Agron, but I really wish Quinn would've died in that accident. Simply because it would've been believable. If you look at where that truck hit her, there's no way she should be alive. So to have her back and in a wheelchair with a "severely compressed spinal cord" just makes me mad because the writers threw in a cliffhanger only to have everything be pretty okay when the show returned from its hiatus. That's lazy storytelling.
I did really enjoy the interactions between Quinn and Artie this episode, especially the scene where Quinn is trying to conquer the steepest ramp in Lima. And I thought Darren Criss and Matt Bomer were so believable as brothers, even if I didn't completely buy into the fact that these kids would be so stupid to buy into his acting advice.
1. It should have been more realistic if Glee has showed us some flash-back of Quinn's accident. Then her days in the hospital, she wakes up in a coma and got in a wheelchair.
2. Glee has forgotten to address if Finn and Rachel got married or not. They just assume, they didn't which leaves viewers confused.
3. Rachel, Santana, Brittany and Sam are Quinn's closest friends among the glee club. Faberry became close-friends. Brittana were also Quinn's cheerio and Sam became Quinn's close-friends in Rumours when she helped him baby-sit his siblings and their scene in Extra-oridinary Christmas.
When did Artie and Quinn had interaction in the past episodes? None. Not until now..
Lack of continuity
My random annoyance is that the writers doesn't fact check their stuff. I'm about 30 mins from Lima. There is no six flags in Ohio.... They should have gone to Cedar Point. Much closer. Six Flags is trademarked. Why pay to use a company's name if you are going to not tell people where it is? It's not somewhere they could have easily taken a bus... Also Ohio's had unseasonably warm weather. And when it has been cold, it's like sweatshirt or thin jacket weather, not Rachel needs to be in a long pea coat weather. Simple factchecking is important, imo...
Sorry the comments keep getting cut off...
Continuously expect the audience to assume this and assume that, but if certain aspects of important storylines are not included in the plot/dialogue than fans will react this way. It is ridiculous to think that an important plotline can be introduced in one episode and then have no mention for months, then they try to bring it to the forefront again by reintroducing it in the recap at the beginning of an episode and expect the audience to invest in what is going on. This lazy type of storytelling needs to stop if the creators want their cash cow-Glee to continue beyond next year because right now, besides Glee fanatics, there seem to be more and more people who are getting tired of the inconsistencies and are ready to pull the plug.
