Glee > Glee Season 4 Premiere Review: A New Direction > Comments Page 3
PART 2 (from below)...I did feel Cory Monteith's absence. Not sure if the show will ever be able to fill it. Finn wasn't the most talented character. But, IMO he provided a strong moral center that all the other characters worked around. Even Rachel would spin off the deep end & Finn would yank her back to what was important. He made mistakes, sure. But, he always owned up to them & admitted when he was wrong. It's hard to find another teen character to fill that role. It can't be an adult. Has to be one of the kids.
I do like seeing both McKinley High & NYADA based stories. They complement & contrast well. It would be stretching reality if Santana & Mercedes somehow found their way to NYC to room w/Kurt & Rachel. Plus, the show would have too many characters. As much as miss Finn, Santana & Mercedes, I think doing Kurt & Rachel stories is enough. But, with all due respect to Chris Colfer, Kurt wouldn't last 2 minutes in dance class at
Good start to the new season IMO. As usual, Mr. Hummel brought me to tears in no less than 20 seconds as he pushes his young adult bird out of the nest, knowing he'll never come home again. Best. TV. Dad. EVER. I was probably tearing up because the audience may never see Burt again and he's one of the few consistent examples of decent parenting on tv today. He's just a gem, and because GLEE has such an exaggerated style, he's also the rare eye of the hurricane on the show.
Way to cast against type with Kate Hudson! She was great as the bitter dance instructor. I really haven't liked any of her performances since ALMOST FAMOUS as much as I liked last night's. Stop doing the rom-com's & buddy comedies, honey, because you're much more effective & memorable as a witch!...TO BE CONTINUED
Finchel Forever simple as that
I MISSED FINN!!! It was NOT the same show without him. And,it didn't make sense that he hadn't contacted Rachel in two months. Huh?
Marley is just okay- she seems really restrained. Blaine stood out as always and Wade/Unique was really watchable. Missed Santana for sure.
I agree about Damian, the Irish guy. He was so cute and personable on the Glee Project yet somehow that never came through on Glee. I do like Dreadlocks guy- he needs more to do.
Kate Hudson's song and dance was way too long.
Just an okay episode. Bring back Finn!!
Glee just isn't the same without Finn. I cannot wait for him to reappear and to see what RIB have in store for him this season. I also don't care for Brody - he's glorified as "hot" but that's about it...he's boring, there's no Brody/Rachel chemistry whatsoever, and frankly, the acting is lackluster. He's only been in one episode and I'm already bored to tears (enough bored tears to fill Ryan Murphy's swimming pool).
Just a quick comment about Damian. I think they missed a large opportunity when they did not write him in as a "Hugh Grant" type character with a shy bumbling type of charm. Would have been entertaining, lots of opportunities for comic relief and I think he would have caught on huge. Unfortunately none of his personality came out on the show but I think that was clearly the writers fault.
Only other thing I will say was the season 4 premiere was pretty good but I do think Glee needs to increasingly watch being too preachy and not jam too many lessons down people's throat. Feels less believable and the audience does not want to be told what is right and wrong. Good way to loose their audience. If there is a message let the story lines carry it and trust the audience will figure it out.
I watched some Glee Project and if the creator wants to change the world that is great but don't use the show as your pulpit. Entertain and let your story lines matter.
This episode was a disappointment. Missed Finn and Santana. Brody has no chemistry with Rachel. No need to have another triangle. Glad Kurt is in NYC. Love Burt Hummel. Only new character that was good wás Jake.
Of course, DeGrassi has been making the formula of rotating in, and shifting focus to, the new kids work very successfully for decades -creating some big stars in the process. And, frankly, DeGrassi also deals much better with social issues, making them integral parts of the ongoing plot, rather than turning episodes into PSAs-of-the-week. Glee could learn a lot from that show.
I missed Finn. As Finn and Rachel are the "main" couple on Glee, they have to be subjected to angst and drama. While this makes for "good TV," it frustrates me. I want Rachel and Finn to be happy, and I happen to think they would be happiest if they are in each other's presence and can share things with each other.
I love Glee as a comedy with occasional touching and poignant stories. I am so over the angst that RIB have decided to keep tossing our way. Brody's character is fine as a friend and mentor but there is no chemistry there. Also why is he attending all Rachel's freshman classes when he is a junior? Have these writers never been to college? Bring back Finchel and their chemistry and continue the love story the writers have built over 3 years. There is plenty of funny material with Finn, Rachel, Kurt and Santana in NYC chasing their dreams to balance the Glee club left in Lima. Sue should not be the only funny part of Glee if it is intended as a comedy.
Not a fan of Brody he brings nothing to the show. Finchel forever
Dean is mediocre actor and has terrible American accent. Had no chemistry with Lea and was cheesy and boring. Bring Cory and Naya to NYC. HUDSONHUMMELBERRYLOPEZ in NYC would be pure gold. Liked marley a lot. Can really relate to her. Want my Finchel not this shiny distraction
Brody is not hotter than Finn. I think he is unattractive. By I digress. I enjoyed this episode for the most part, but the only parts I'll rewatch are New York State of Mind and Chasing Pavements. I love Rachel/ Cassie scenes and Hummelberry scenes were perfect. Loved Marley. Didn't like the Brody stuff. It was cheesy, awkward and no chemistry. I really missed Finn. And I miss determined to succeed Rachel who fights for solos and fights for the boy she loves. Need my Finchel back. Overall a good starter.
Glee was boring. Without Finchel and especially without Finn it wasn't interesting and knowing they are going to break them up YET AGAIN in episode four it feels like a slap in the face to season 3 and I don't want to watch it. I don't care how hot Brody is because he's boring and there is no chemistry between him and Rachel and they put him in the "older brother/mentor/friend" zone and of course they're going to make it awkward in the next episode because of the old storyline "Rachel Berry isn't sexy" when she is so...
This season better shape up real quick or I'll watch something else. I'm tired of love triangles and I'm not going to put up with it.
I want my Finchel back
Not having Finn on the show felt like I was watching another series. Finn Hudson was always Glee's conscience and leader. It's weird not seeing him onscreen with the other kids. Guess that's why his absence felt the most glaring to us all.
I not only missed Finn Hudson's presence, but the cohesiveness that his relationship with Rachel brought to the show. Seeing her miss him and seeing the effect his absence has on her life made the show seem like it was missing its heart, if that makes sense.
I agree 100% about the Finn thing and the obvious set up for a triangle. It's so annoying that after everything Finn and Rachel went through last year, to prove they only want each other, another love triangle just seems like lazy writing and them not coming up with better things to do with a couple.
Call me when Finn comes back and I'll care more.
I miss finn and finchel is forever
I thought it was kind of dull. Rachel is too isolated in NYC right now, and they need some of the better actors to join her. Brody may have nice abs, but the actor is seriously lacking in the charisma and, well, acting department. Don't care about the new bad boy and Mary Sue Marley yet. Definitely feels a little Saved By the Bell there. If they get Finn and Santana to NYC soon to join Rachel and Kurt, and let the four of them duke it out in a shared apartment then I can see this becoming a show I love watching again.
in this episode, the ny side is a bit lackluster save for rachel; can't wait till finn joins rachel and kurt in ny; don't particularly care for the new guy; he seems like a one-dimensional character used to echo the writers' gems of wisdom; unfortunately the b-character was not even effectively delivering and those scenes were actually the most awkward to watch.
The whole brody/Rachel thing is soooo unnecessary especially when there were much better ways to create conflict following the finale.
I don't care what brody/dean looks like at all, his acting, accent and chemistry with Rachel/lea was terrible. I think if this storyline coninues for too long I will tune out. As much as I love Rachel I wanted a better storyline for her than this.
I understand why Finn wasn't in the episodes because cory was filming a movie, and im sure I read a quote from Lea saying his absence is explainable and understandable but that doesn't make me miss him less, and not seeing him in the episode made me realise how much the show needs him.
Glee just didn't feel the same without Finn there. It just felt incomplete without him there. I just don't care for Brody's character. I'm also tired of the third party storylines. There was no need for it. I'm gonna be rooting for Rachel and Kurt in NY (hopefully Finn and Santana will join them). I'm also gonna be rooting for Finchel. I think I'll enjoy glee so much more once Finn is back on my screen.
the only thing that everybody is interested in when it comes to Brody is his body and that's all he can offer from what I've seen so far sooo I'm bored with his character already...Jake and Marley are another story, they're a fresh look for this season but without Finn the show doesn't feel like glee for me... BTW 'll get excited about this season again when I get my Finchel back #FinchelForever
I agree that Finn not there was very strange and I hope he returns soon. The whole Brody thing seems forced and he didn't really say anything that Finn wouldn't have and yes it feels like they are setting up a triangle with Rachel and those two and it isn't even that believable since last season was so heavy to fans on how much Rachel and Finn love each other.
I did love Marley and jake and think they are nice additions to the cast and hope to see more of their story.
Also, Dean needs to pick up the acting because where as he is nice to look at if he can't deliver the lines then his character is pointless
