Glee > Glee Season 4 Premiere Review: A New Direction > Comments Page 5
Lots to like, lots to hate.
--Blaine's musical encouragement to get Kurt to move to NY (and his jumping double-dutch was just plain ADORABLE!!!!!!!)
--both renditions of "New York State of Mind"
--Brody (nom nom nom)
--Burt hiding his tears as Kurt enter the airport terminal
The ENTIRE bevy of bullying blonde bitches in both Lima AND NY. It's tired and cliche.
members not showing up in every episode, it's gonna be a hell of a bad season for you all (damn comment that got cut)
Okay, I do agree that Damian got completely screwed over with his apparent absence combined with Alex and Samuel (and Lindsay, who could reprise her role easily) staying in the show. I do not agree however that the episode was in anyway bad or that the direction of the series is even a little lost. Let's see Marley, we can't possibly ask for a deep character in a first episode, every character in the show had absolutely no depth in the pilot, trying to give depth to a newcomer was the main mistake with Rory and Joe, who fell completely flat at season 3. Jake is totally different from Puck considering that Puck was the top popular jock and Jake is a revolted nobody who didn't have any enthusiasm for changing his ways. For the old cast, i think that Finn's absence really got noticed for me because he's my favorite character, but i'm not judging till I see the third episode (I guess) when he appears with Ryder (Blake). Anyway, just my two cents on the matter, and if you don't like the old
The show does feel different because the characters that we have grown to love are no longer going to be front and center except Rachel.I do like the new Puckerman not because he is adorable but also because of his of talent...he did a really nice job especially on the full version of Never Say Never. The ND's are missing that powerhouse like Rachel because Marley is surely not the answer.
Oh, I agree with Michael. If you really think that the most conspicuous absence was Finn, I can't help it bu think that you were perhaps watching something else. These kind of reviews are always subjective, and they always reflect opinions and not facts but still do you really think that this show can survive without Quin, Santana, or Mercedes?
Oh I do want to point out it was obvious that there was more than just finn that was missing. Quinn -probably the only other character that was actually ever fleshed out and played wonderfully well. Santana - even Puck. These characters held this show together. There is no glue. No heart. And further more...NOT ENOUGH SUE or COACH ROZ!!!
FINALLY AN HONEST REVIEW ABOUT THIS SHOW!! The whole thing has been dragged out too long. What is great is that Rachel has stopped playing a caricature of herself. That was refreshing. The others are just playing 2 dimensional characters. I fault the writers and creator. Giving them bitchy one liners or a sad background to talk about doesn't create depth. It's like they are playing what the character breakdown of the script says about them and they have been doing it now for 3 years!! It's time for Glee to go. Why don't they see that - they could go out with a bang instead of a thud.
The episode was good mixed with blah. I'm a little annoyed that there wasn't much focus on the existing glee club members. I still feel like I don't know them enough. Plus, I'm already getting a bad case of deja vu starring the underdog white girl and the cute, dark-haired guy.
Just wanted to point out Alex didnt win damian and Samuel did. Which makes me so annoyed that Ryan Murphy has screwed over damian. Yes he got more episodes that planned but he never got to speak. Ever. I am really wishing at this point that they had given Rachel Finn and Kurt the spin off they had planned. Honestly I like the new York story way better than the glee club part at this point because half the original cast is gone. If blain had graduated too and been in new York I wouldn't even watch the glee club parts cuz I just feel like it is too late to introduce so many new people
