DCB: I know it's "supposed" to be considered ridiculous and a comedy and lead in to their musical performances. 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 or dialogue thrown in to make people think that the show is still the same. The show is not the same anymore. They throw in multiple serious topics in the same episode and rush to get it all resolved and tied into a bow by the end of that same episode. Instead of developing story arcs, the show creators brush over important points that could not only be beneficial to the show and its story but allow the show's fans to be truly invested in what they watch on a weekly basis. Did I want a 10 minute dialogue of Quinn explaining every single detail of the accident to the hospital and to where they were at that moment? No, but a simple recap and introducing little elements into this episode is insulting. These writers continuously e
I was very disappointed in this episode. So much lead up, anticipation and....Quinn is in a wheelchair but will walk again..and she has no other cuts or bruises to speak of? I kept thinking the episode was going to turn out to be some weird dream sequence and we would find out that Quinn was actually in a coma or something. Plus, where did Blaine's brother come from all of a sudden, and what is up with the pool cleaning business idea? Pretty sure Southern Cali has a lot of pool cleaners if there are as many pools as Puck said. I used to like Glee for the musical numbers, not so much the storylines. Now they try to eek out these really ridiculous story lines accompanied by a few songs per episode. Failing, Ryan Murphy...FAILING.
It makes me confused about how much time has passed because I would assume she would have some more cuts and bruises besides her temporary paralysis
So, sue is going to have a down syndrome baby. Wow, how emotional.
I think Quinn is in a coma and this episode and the next six episodes are in her head.
I agree with some previous comments that i was rather anti-climatic for the last episode to end so drastically and then carry over into this episode. I felt like they were saying "oh by the way this is what happened", there was a disconnect there for me.
If Rachael and Finn were seconds away from the wedding-being rushed in to not lose their time slot-then how could they possibly have learned of Quinn's accident in time to cancel. I figure her own mother may not have known about it until she was already at the hospital. I suppose Rachael may have insisted on postponing because Quinn was not there yet (still just assuming she was late) but I wish they would have addressed it.
I also think it would have made for a better story if Quinn had more damage. Maybe a broken arm or something too. Did the writers even do any research to see what type of injuries are more likely to occur based on an accident of this nature? It makes me confused about how much time has passed because I would assu
I really liked this episode. We have seen Blaine aggressive and angry before so fighter was in character. Blaine doesn't get all the story lines, he only ever really gets the 'supporting kurt' role and even when he was rock salt slushied Sebastian was the main focus. I really want to see a scene or even an episode where Blaines father is shown so that the reality that not all parents are excepting of their children can be shown on Glee. Well done Ryan, another great show.
"Is the audience really supposed to believe . . ."
It's a farce, a fantasy, a musical showcase. It's not 'Cops' 'Dragnet' nor does it even claim to have a story line 'ripped from the headlines'.
At its best Glee's storyline has no other purpose than as a set up for a musical number. At it's absolute worst, Glee gets preachy or tries to make a moral/social point. Unfortunately, the latter is where it's been hovering for quite a while. The best episodes are when the musical performances are great, regardless of the story/acting. Almost all the story lines and characters are ridiculous, and have been from the beginning. The actors are obviously quite older than their characters, the teaching staff is, to a person, in violation of dozens of laws, even some felonies, need I go on?
You may as well get fired up over Gilligan's bamboo and thatch peddle car and the size of Ginger's wardrobe.
is this episode supposed to be taking place? When did Quinn and Artie become such good friends or develop even more of a relationship? Is the audience really supposed to believe that even if this occurred a month later that Quinn would have no signs of being in a bad car accident other than being in a wheelchair (no lingering cuts/bruises/casts on body parts)? Even after the weeks of hype and advertising, are we really supposed to just accept that Blaine's brother just shows up after never hearing him mention any members of his family before when he was first introduced last season?
Sorry about the order of the comments but my first post got cut off.
I have not understood why the writers think they can overlook a lot of seemingly important plot points to just move the show along to its season's end. Last year started to trend downward into nothing more than showcasing their latest tracks on iTunes to PSA after PSA, though it was light on that today with just a blurb of no texting while driving. However, if they want to continue this show beyond next year, something has to change to make fans feel invested in the main characters again and not have guest star after guest star appear to "carry" that particular episode. Next week looks like another filler episode by trying to incorporate disco...really?! We will see how things shape up as the finale looms in the distance, but Glee has a long way to go to get back to what it used to be.
From the opening minutes of this episode, my wife and I looked at each other and laughed because we knew it was going to be another ridiculous episode of Glee. It has been over a month and a half since the last episode, and speculation ran rampant of how it was going to pick back up to get to the season finale of what I am still predicting the New Directions winning nationals (as an aside: interesting that it took this long to point out that nationals are in Chicago this season when it took all of 5 minutes into episode 1 of season 2 to announce nationals were in New York). It might have been 40+ days since the last episode, but the plot and overall message of the show has not improved. Are the writers really trying to have the audience believe that everyone, besides Rachel for the first half of the show, are just completely fine with what happened to Quinn after she gave her 60 second recap of her condition and had her first wheelchair duet with Artie? How long after the accident
i love the episode but the fighter performance made me mad. I grew up listening to Christina Aguilera and the way Blaine hold that note made me mad he was a great singer for it but the note made me mad
overall good episode i give it a C+
Do you guys honestly think that Rachel and Finn are getting married at the end of this season? I can get bet you Rachel's voice that they'll figure out they're not mature enough for it. Kids actually believe things can work out for them at this age, that's why I think it's actually a really good story. @Kay the show isn't trying to make you believe anything the pool cleaning is just a way for Finn to force Finn to actually think about his future and not just go along with Rachel, they probably won't even mention the business in upcoming eps btw Finn's always be stupid, be it joke or not. PS just because Britana didn't have any scenes doesn't make the ep bad, a Tina fan could say that about every single episode. @Kimmie, First you don't want PSA now you complain that there wasn't a PSA, Glee can't win with you.
i think this season should be "GLEE: The Blaine Show".... common WTF..blaine always have story, always singing, always had a solo no. than FINN! enough BLAIN... they wasting some story of those major character to focus for the story of BLAIN...WTF!
Seriously, Glee is is getting worse by each episode. I would love Ryan M to focus a little more on existing characters and stop bringing in new people to shift the attention away. Another thing, I loved Rachel's drive in season 1, but in the later seasons, she just seems to have lost it. It is good to see that she is still holding on to her NY dream, if the writers choose to change her mind to stay and support the pool cleaning business, I honestly have doubts about their talent and motive. I thought the story behind glee was never to lose your dream and fight for it despite how pathetic high school treats you.
If Finn is pulling Rachel away from her dreams, just get rid of him, I'm sure there are other guys out there in NY too. Plus they are way to young and a little immature to get married. What were you thinking writers?!
"Fighter" not Blaine. She should have sang because he sung too much and her voice would have been better for this song.
One MAJOR reason that made this episode bad was that Brittany and Santana had almost no dialogue. We got little scenes of them dancing together and holding hands but that NOT ENOUGH.
And it makes no sense for the juniors of Glee club to be skipping for senior skip day.
This episode of Glee was one of the worst in this season. Considering how the last episode ended, this one failed to carry on its momentum. Quinn almost died because she was texting while driving. In this episode she made one minor comment about how dangerous it is and then it was completely forgotten. Glee always does this. They take serious issues happening in the world and at first it looks like they will create a very good plot out of it but then all of a sudden they just take it to waste.
I like Blaine but I thought this episode should not have revolve around him and his brother. We do not know his brother at all so it is hard to connect to their relationship. These three performed like 3 songs tonight. Does the writers not know that they have like 20 other amazing voices? This episode didn't progress anywhere. They just brought in Blaine's brother at the wrong time. The show needs to focus more on these students not the guest stars. And I thought Santana was suppose to sing
I thought the epi was lame. I waited weeks to find out what happened and they totally skipped over the cliffhanger and left us hanging. Ok we get the end result...no wedding, in a wheelchair, etc..... but I would have liked to start off where we ended. I could really have cared less about Blaine or his brother. Was very diappointed. :(
Also i wanted to see rachel'sparents making a diabolical plan. Was mikr actually in thia episode??
Why disnt matt review??
And last could we stop having episodes centered around a guest star or a singer
Fighter in the beginning qas horrible and oittaplace, but i really liked it. But it was unecessary seriously it made me miss Santana!
Im glad that Rachel didnt marry Finn, seriously rachel wants to go to broadway, she is an inspiring character, she needs to follow her dreams, she should listen to the song troubletones sang, she doesnt need a man to suceed.
I like sue, I love prefnant Sue, i hate the other coach
Artie was great I wish he had always gotten more attention, he is a great character.
This episode really jumped the shark. Too many way-out-there plot lines. Sue pregnant is icky enough but now of course we had to be compassionate because of her baby's disability. Quin in a wheel chair with the expectation she will rise in triumph? Come on. And the continuing foolishness of Rachel getting married after high school?? It just isn't in her genetic code.All in all a lame episode . In fact I think the whole show ought to graduate in June and leave us. I do love Matt Bomer but I'll get my fix in White Collar and leave it at that.
I laughed at every advice Matt gave the kids on the fine "point" of acting. And he happens to have a script from NCIS! Nice. The best song of the night was: Gotye-Somebody I used to know. I am just glad that Quinn is ok and Rachel and Finn did not marry. I want to see Matt to return as Cooper next season to talk about the Michael Bay movie! LOL.
I'm glad that quinn is alive and can probably walk again soon....and I never knew that matt bomer was gay.
its a satire, it's supposed to poke fun at human flaws,it also regualarly pokes fun at itself, which I thought they were trying to do with the "texting-driving" thing and the constant PSA critiques. PS, not that I didn't enjoy your review Carla, but is Matt officialy done with Glee reviews? I would've really liked to hear his take on th overall epiosde, because I think he may have actually enjoyed ity, since he's been so negative in the last few reviews. Oh well, guess I'll have to wait till the round table.
I enjoyed this episode alot more that I thought I would, maybe because I thought the whole story would center around Blaine and Cooper, but the stories were actually quite balanced. Sue was on top form again and this episode just seemed to breathe new life in her character as well as story. I'm glad to see Finn and Rachel are finally looking passed their "ultimate", that marriage is no for kids. I loved Quinn and enjoyed the theme park scene. Also, always a pleasure to see Coach Roz. @Kay, I agree the song's could have been more balanced between the actors, but they were great, except for fighter. Also the characters have been doing stupid things since season 1, Finn didn't know which side his heart was, Kurt's excuse for wearing a leotard was it's workout clothing, Mr figgins hired Terri because she said she knew how to "use"a difribilator and Rachel fell for a bunch of sad made-up love stories from supposed older women, but were in fact her fellow sudents. Liske farsia said, it's a s
btw the comment i am referring to is the very first for this ep
