The best part was the music and when the pianist spoke to Sue.
@Seriefreak you're not the only one who loves the NY scenes. I love the NY scenes as well.
Glee's amazing because the old characters are still in it, the way that the show is going how it shifts from the old characters and the new characters lives make it more interesting. Watching the new characters alone would be absolutely boring without the original cast in it. If the original cast were to leave, I would stop watching in all honesty.
I for one was disappointed in this episode!!! no one said a word to marley about how did her disorder start nor did anyone attack kitty!!!!! i too agree with other reviewers about her character could really care less! don't like how they handled the mum story or how quick they were to brush the bullemia aside! it is a serious issue and needs to be handled delicately and with the right attention. the other gleerers were right to shone her because she did cost them it with her self centred self. moving on, episode was meh. there's no development. hudson is wasted on show and sue needs to accept ND now its becoming tedious. disappointed in writers not having balls to finish what they begun either
Then it's a good thing the kids who graduated are being shown in college and not perpetually in high school. Fans wanted a spin off. It didn't happen. They can't lose their biggest stars on the show, especially to such a dull new cast, minus rider. He's the only one worth watching. I can't stand marley and am not invested in any of the other new kids at all. But to say lea Michele can't sing? That's just nuts. She's never sounded better than she did in this past episode. Many said they had goosebumps. And really people, I'm pretty sure Brittany wasn't saying every single person who was pissed about her and Santana were lesbians… just that the actual lesbians who are fans of them were mad. People are reading way too much into this.
Poorest episode this year. The show should be about the kids at McKinley High, in the glee club NOW, not about who has graduated, and what they are doing. I am sick of Rachel Berry plot lines. I am so tired of her voice, I muted while she sang not one, but TWO songs. She belts. She does not sing. Enough, already. Kurt's character was brave and intersting. He has moved on. So should we. Let's develop the new characters! Let's have intersting interactions between old students and new students. And when students graduate, let them come back for a special eposiode (very rarely) and not foever. High school is about 4 years, not perpetuity.
As someone who doesn't watch Glee for the story lines, the music is what I DVR Glee for. I stopped watching last season, tried this season but it did nothing for me. So, Glee is a place where they appreciate music and what it says. Rachel sung like never before. Her voice is like an angel's. Kurt had a solo. The group number was spectacular. When people say that Finn cannot sing, this just showed Finn's ability to transend all the emotion of the song's lyrics. I'm not a fan of Marley's singing and agree with Tina's comment that she will never be a replacement for Rachel. For the record, the last 2 episodes have been pretty good for stories to be told. And I don't like the direction the writer's have taken Glee. I miss Santana desperately. Glee needs her. So does NY. NY til Swan Song has been dull.
I liked the episode-loved it also when the pianist came in and thanked Sue!
Did anyone else not really like the first song rachel sang in the competition? Where did that song come from?
Also, I thought it was interesting that Rachel is Jewish and her favorite "holiday" song, as she put it, was "Oh Holy Night?" Does she not know the song is about Jesus's birth?
I did really enjoy the last number- Cory Monteith, as usual, puts so much humanity and sensitivity in everything he does.
@Miranda Wicker, I don't mind the little comedy it adds when Ryan wants to directly address the crowd through a speech in the show, as long as it's about something funny. But calling every single Brittana fan an "angry lesbian" is just offensive.
I'm a little upset they broke up, but I like Brit and Sam together, they're cute. And I understand that the networks have some kind of quota about homosexual scenes involving kissing and stuff, but Ryan Murphy offended me by calling me an "angry lesbian" and then later by having Brittany say that Brittana fans will just have to deal with it instead of saying just that they love each other and their gender shouldn't matter.
Am I the only one around here that LOVES the NY scenes? McKinley just bores me now. It's the same old story again with Sue Sylvester. Really I've had enough of that. And I just don't like the new characters.
That angry lesbians comment was offensive! They insulted an entire fandom! I love Brittana, but I am a STRAIGHT woman! And it's not about the fact that Brittany is bisexual. We all know that she is. It's just that when she's in a relationship with a man vs her relationship with Santana, Brittany actually has a voice. They don't stick her in the background, becoming mute! It took how long for Brittana to get ONE kiss when Finchel was getting them every time they were on screen? But Brittany and Sam automatically gets a kiss right after they get together. And the same goes for Sam and Mercedes. All that build up last season and they pretend as if Samcedes didn't even exist! The double standards on Glee are just preposterous! And that's why, ironically, this my "Swan Song" for Glee!
I FEEL LIKE ATTACKING KITTY, BUT LIKE HOW SANTANA WANTS TO ATTACK RACHEL. FINN,MR.SHUE, EVERYBOFY NEEDS TO KNOW THAT KITTY CAUSED THEM TO LOSE!!
Btw, I'm screaming on the inside when I think that someone took SAM away from me...
People are taking this angry lesbians comment way too seriously… that was clearly their fun little way of poking fun and saying hey Brittana shippers, this is for you! That's Brittany's character… those are the types of comments she's ALWAYS made. And Ryan Murphy is gay. Why would he be against centering on the gays on his show? All of season two was pretty much based on Kurt being gay and last year largely focused on him and Blaine. I think you're a little too over emotional if this stuff is really offending you.
Hated the bits about Marleys eating disorder, I have from the start and it's not getting better. someone here mentioned that we do not have enough interaction between the new and the old glee members. This is exactly why i hate the New York scenes. As much as i love kurt and rachel, they are not part of gleeclub anymore, they just take away screentime which should be used to get more out of the members.
P.S. The pianist thanking Sue was HILARIOUS!
Also I think Sam and Brit are good together - he makes her smile and happy. Love is love no matter whom you love boy or girl - if it makes you happy - go with it.
I am pissed as I am pretty sure everyone else is that Kitty is still in the Glee club and did not get kicked out after it was revealed what she did to Marley - WTF, Glee don't you dare abandon this sl! Kitty should get kicked out!
I am done with Ms July - nothing interesting there. Rachel was magnificent on that stage and so was Kurt.
I loved the final scene because it reminded of the old Glee - hopefully it gets better for them, but they must write a new chapter in the history of that club and start acting like one.
I loved the episode, especially because the New Directions did not win - they weren't supposed to anyway because there on the stage they were not a team, they were just a part of the old Glee members mixed with the new ones at a competition. That was and still remains my biggest concern which was at least a little bit addressed in the last 4 mins - ever since the newbies entered Glee club - there was no club really, we never got to see them interact and they did not feel like they were one family. Rachel was spot on when she said what Glee was about - it was about people who loved music and that is why the New Directions used to win because they were ONE and performed as a WHOLE. Its good that now they are back to underdog status and that they have to fight for everything again - even if it is for a room to practice in. It will and should bond them together. Maybe they can start interacting more.
I am pissed as I am pretty sure everyone else is that Kitty is still in the Glee club
As for the 'lesbian' issues, meh. Anyone who judges, forms opinions, or even takes seriously societal issues based on the Glee characters are simply doing it wrong. This isn't a civics class, it's a TV show. Taking it seriously at all, about anything, is a complete waste of rage.
Rachael's singing was spot-on. Kurt's was spot-on, Ive said it before that's well and good, but never enough. That's why I loved the cereal trail, Carl's exit speech, the line about the movie 'Prometheus' The quirky humor between Sam and Britt and especially the Interfaith paintball league, where Jews, Christians and Muslims can shoot each other all they want but nobody gets hurt. (hugs)
Give us great singing, energetic dancing, but please, please don't ever slack off the comedy.
I mean the gal in the wheelchair from "The Glee Project" of course.Anyway, I also wanted to say that I loved Rachel's songs for the showcase, and I was so moved by her incredible talent, and Kurt's vulnerability during his song that I had to get out the tissues. That was beautifully done. I'm also with the reviewer in being tired of Kate Hudson's nasty dance teacher--she brings nothing to the show but her ridiculous jealousy of Rachel and her egotistical alcoholism.
BTW, I am glad that Sam and Brittany are getting together, and I think, from the comments here and on Facebook, that Brit was right about the militant lesbians getting their panties in a bunch over her no longer being in a gay relationship. When I was at an all-womens college, I saw a lot of lesbian relationships, and now, years later, over 75 percent of those gals have gone on to have relationships/marriages with men.
After the end of this episode, I told my wife "They finally fixed it."
I was completely off-put by the 'Grease' and other earlier episodes this season, something was missing, the shows, even the musical performances seemed flat.
Something about this episode, however, proved to me that the show's creators still have it in them. Carl's (the piano guy) exit speech, the first time I recall him saying anything was perfect! 'Something Stupid' was excellent, I love it when the second tier gets to perform front and center. 'All that Jazz' mm, not so much. I agree, I've had enough of Cassie. (Cntd)
I agree with what the reviewer said about that b*tch Kitty causing so much destruction and having no repercussions, when she should have at least gotten punched by Santana for turning wimpy Marley into an anorexic idiot. Kitty was the real cause of the New Directions losing, because without her campaign of fear of obesity toward Marley, she never would have fainted and messed up the entire show. That said, I really dislike Marley and think she's a waste of airtime as a character. She's whiny, stupid and easily corrupted, and I honestly don't think she's got that great of a voice...it's as wimpy as her character. I think that Ryan M and company should have hired that sparky gal in the wheelchair who could REALLY belt out the tunes to replace Rachel in New Directions. I agree with Tina when she said "I knew Rachel Berry, you're no Rachel Berry" which is all too true.
While I liked the episode I was a little annoyed by a few things:
1) The reason for Marley's fall was relegated to a small scene involving Santana saying it was Kitty's fault and that was it, nothing happened
2) None of the people who claim to care about Marley helped/defended her when she was getting the blame, neither of the guys said 1 word to defend her
3) Tina joining the cheerios was more weird because she's going to the person who wanted to crush the glee club for the last couple of years
4) I can't even describe how ridiculous Joe's extracuricular was, I was rolling my eyes when he was talking about it
Anyway, onto the positives. I was actually interested by the NYC side, something the last few eps have failed to do. Losing interest in the Cassie Vs Rachel thing. Thought Bram was sweet. At first I found Tina to be over the top with the bitchiness until I thought about it and it made sence. She's spent 3 years in the background while Rachel, Kurt and the others shone then s
This episode was AMAZING :) Absolutely amazing. Both the vocal and acting performances, all round. Rachel did own her songs, just as Kurt owned his. I have loved many of Kurt's songs, but this was just fantastic! As touching as "I Want to Hold Your Hand", "As If We Never Said Goodbye" and "Blackbird".
So much negativity has been spouted that I'd not be surprised if Ryan Murphy, FOX and all the cast just said "What?" and closed down. If you LOOK for negativity, you will FIND it.
PLEASE look and breathe: the stuff with Britt is NOT negative. She is often in her own little world of miracles. BRITT, who thinks her cat has an ecstacy addiction and is a member of a gang. BRITT, who thinks Rory is a leprechaun and makes decisions based on what someone else's wish is. And so many other things... Her eating the cereal was following a path through the maze - nothing negative. Britt's comment about "angry lesbians" was the SAME type of comment - a type of irony or facetiousne
xandrew: I understand that there is pressure from the network. It still doesn't excuse the fact that when Santana was outed to the entire state last year, Brittany was rendered mute and was not a part of her storyline at all. Now that Sam wants to date her, Brittany suddenly has a voice again, and the writers used that voice to take a shot at an entire group of people - lesbians, not just "Brittana shippers" - and paint them as violent and heterophobic. It's irresponsible and mean-spirited.
I'm glad they had the courage to let them lose sectionals, but I have a feeling something will happen to give them another chance.
It was nice to see the pianist speak finally.
It looks like one of the characters will publicly address the complaints of some segment of the audience every week.
