Glee > Glee Review: When It's Over, Is It Really Over? > Comments Page 3
I thought last nights episode was interesting... While I don't think Brody's character would do what he did with Cassandra although he tried with Rachel when she had a bf and he did say she's been Mia.... But regardless I think Kate hudsen is flipping amazing on the show and gives sue a run for her money as the evil bitch....
The new characters I'm finding myself more invested then ever especially with Ryder on there. I wasn't a fan of him on the glee project but he has made a fan of me already.. The newbies need a fair shake as well as Tina Brit and Blaine.... Give them se story...
Santana needs to just move to New York with Rachel and Kurt already....
I disagree. I don't think I would have ever been caught up in the show if this new cast was the original cast. I think a lot of them simply lack charisma and the charm that the originals had. Plus, they're just not funny. I think they stumbled on to something great with the original cast, a chemistry that can't always be duplicated. I'd be happy if they just dumped the newbies completely next year and just followed the adventures of the gang in LA and NY.
ps the weight story was disgusting and ethics should have reviewed the plotline! how dare they make light of a serious issue! very disappointed glee writers! they should have made marley stand up to kitty or someone at least! it was very frustrating as a viewer to watch
the best parts of this episode were the following:
Blaine's rendition of my fav grease song *sways and doo-woops* i'm beginning to really like this actor and now need to rewatch teenage dream.....
Finn and rachels's closure. this was so real that i wanted to cry and again watch teenage dream and then mine. what finn said was true and what most couples say to each other after they break up. it was good to see that they have closure and that the other characters were also allowed to shine. glad that satana and britney may be one again, didn't agree with the break up at all tbh. overall 4.5/5 for consistency and my fav grease song
@nasne, I also hated the weight issues with Marley, but I'm waiting to see what they do with the bulimia story before making a judgment. If this becomes part of Marley's story line, I'll certainly have things to say.
Loose all the New Characters and move all the orginals in one place! Easy!
I agree, let's do a spinoff on the graduates. Could actually have a bi-coastal with Rachel and Kurt in NY and Puck and eventually Finn in CA. Bring Glee back to OH with occasional visits by the old cast to Glee and the Glee cast to the coastals.
I don't watch this show regularly but I did last night. I thought the numbers seemed, as Simon Cowell would say ......"a bit karaoke"
I hated the part about Marley wanting to loose weight and her mother, in stead of saying: you are great as you are, her mother said let's go on a diet, both of us.
I absolutely hate the parts with rachel and kurt atm. And I keep wondering, what the hell happend to rachel, so the move to new york suddenly made her wear heavy make-up, tight skirts and high heels all the time, please.
And honestly I was annoyed that the grease scene suddenly turned into Rachel and Finn singing. If you wanted to keep that, then you should not have let them graduate. Either keep going with the old cast of give the new cast it's fair chance, this in between thing is getting very irritating very fast. Oh and please get rid of that b*tch teacher from New York. I don't even like hating her (same goes for Kitty, though I do see some potential there).
I agree with miranda completely... so much so that I have been thinking the exact same thing myself for the past few weeks now. Had these new kids come first, we would love them as much as we do the graduates and likewise they deserve their own shot. The show isnt going anywhere creatively, not with enough cast members to do another show. Ryan Murphy should have given the Rachel/Kurt spin off a try coz the who New York/Next Chapter approach is fun to watch but not when it interferes with main storyline... which on Glee are those set at McKinley!
So the destruction of Brody's character has officially began. How many times does Finchel have to break up? Dear god, enough already! They need to stop beating a dead horse. Marley needs to invest in a scale, they don't lie honey. Annoyed that we only got a 30 second reaction from Kurt while devoted!Blaine gets an entire episode and countless solos to whine about the fact that it was his fault. Santana in the musical? WTH?! And Sue's okay with it?
Love the flashback and the ending of You're The One. I wished they'd done Grease with the original cast. We Go Together would have been an awesome number. Songs were a little flat but enjoyable enough.
That last conversation between Finn and Rachel was the highlight of the episode, and said it all in terms of the theme of the episode, which seemed to be closure and the danger of nostalgia.
I agree with Tina...I am loving the "new" kids. Turns out that Glee, for me, is about the glee club and the antics at high school. Graduates can move on and we can have new happenings for New Directions.
What if Cassandra was lying? She wanted to learn Rachel a lesson from the beggining of the episode. What if she lied? We didn't see Brody. What he has to say. Just THINK and then give a grade to an episode.
I could totally do without the old students. After this week I am officially in love with Ryder and Marley. I want to see more of Wade, Kitty and Jake. I want to get to know these kids.
I agree having both NY and Lima isn't working, but I'd rather just move the show to NY. These episodes that center on the kids in Lima have shown me I just don't care about them and I'm really starting to resent Rachel and Kurt's stories being in a holding pattern while they focus on the new kids.
Oh lord my Klainer heart hurts after watching that. If it weren't for my hourly trolling of reliable spoiler sites, I might have just stayed in a corner of my room and bawled my eyes out for the rest of the night. But I know there is hope, and so I have come out of hiding.
I did like tonight's episode despite spending many scenes trying to not cry. The brief flashback to the very first episode made me feel all sentimental. I'm anxious to see where they take this storyline with Marley, and I hope they take it very seriously. Finn becoming the new director for ND is... Eh, I'll reserve judgement I guess. As always, can't wait for next week's episode!
I'm SO past tired of Finn & Kitty. Over them both ...
What the heck is happening with Glee? The commercials just cut into the show randomly, cutting out most of the scenes. Hardly even worth watching. Boo Fox.
In rereading my post, I realize I was unclear regarding New York. I'm not calling for scratching it entirely. I'm just calling for the emphasis on that part of the show to be dialed back. I find that I'm growing more and more invested in the lives of the new high school students and I'd like to see more of that.
Didn't enjoy this episode as much as the last one, probably because I'm not that much of a Grease fan, but I gotta say there we're a lot of small moments that made the episodes really worth the while. My favourite performance was "There are worse things I could do"
I loved Mercedes-Rachel-Kurt reunion, the Mike and Tina convo, when Tina assumed she'd be Rizzo(very glad they had this scene), The Santana- Britanny convo. It just seemed like there we're moments for every cast member and I loved it.
Where I found Kitty amazing last week, I really didn't enjoy her mean streak this week. It wasn't funny at all and just plain mean. While I felt the Cassie-Brody parts we're really random, it was nice seeing him with his shirt off.
I agree with everything about this review except scratching NY, I actually enjoy the shows new format, makes for endless possibilities.
I agree with most of this, except for the advocating of Rachel and Kurt getting less screen time. I think the two storylines work perfectly together in most episodes. In most cases, the writers manage to parallel the NYC storylines with the Ohio storylines. I still care very much about Rachel and Kurt, and to be honest, if they were to leave the show completely, I would still watch, but not every episode every week, and certainly wouldn't care much about it.
Coming from a harsh critic of season 3, I really think the show is pulling itself together. For that to happen, Rachel and Kurt need to stay. The show probably wouldn't hurt by airing a few episodes without them, and in turn airing episodes featuring only them. It's a balancing act I guess.
Where the heck is Quinn?
I asked myself the same question. Would I have been interested in Glee if these new kids were the original cast? My answer "meh!!!" I would have been gone after week one, and I'm pretty sure that the show would never have generated any buzz to get me watching in the first place. In my opinion the 2.0's are bland shadows of what was. And what is worse is that every time a Santana or Mercedes takes the stage i am sad and nostolgic for what was and what could still be.
I grew up with Grease too and loved it. I felt Blaine was a perfect Teenage Angel but the song was a little lower than what he normally sings. My mom actually text me and said the same thing about Sugar looking like Frenchy. I wish Tina would get some more screen time, although I feel she is almost a completely different character from the girl who dressed all in black and pretended to have a lisp. I loved "You're the One that I Want"; I completely forgot Finn and Rachel had attempted to sing that song at the very beginning of the series. Finn's talk with Rachel was heart breaking. He does know Rachel so well. I loved her little "i have a few notes" comment. it's such a Rachel thing. Santana as Rizzo...well I'll let it go because she makes a great Rizzo. Brody...I'm really hoping next week we find out that he didn't sleep with her, Cassandra was just being a jerk.
