I hope they do more of a New York story line. Adam lambert was awesome I would love to see a love hate relationship develop between him and Kurt !

I really liked the episode. Tina-Unique-Kitty scenes were amazing. Sam-Penny scenes were cute. Too cute! Songs were not so good. I only liked WA. Kitty is hilarious. When she said "Bre" I died. :D
NY side was cool. I liked Starchild.
WTH was that with Ms.Schue and Marley. It was so dumb. And in the next episode he says something like "Freedome of expresion"?
Anyway it was a good episodeand I would grade it 4.3 not 3.0. You talked too much about guys in this review. What about girls? Kitty and Tina were so hot! It was so unnecessery. -.-

Marley's character makes me sad. She has some really relevant insecurities that would be great for the show to address but instead they brush her off. Marley is probably the only character that is in any way like a real high school student but I guess that doesn't make the kind of show that Glee is trying to make?

Go please no to anyone but Will struggling with Finns death the rest can't handle drama. I think the two mention were fine and best for Rachel. Down the line maybe Kurt or Will still showing some signs of grief would be good. Another episode that jsut shows it is time to go to NY. Sadly they are going force Sam and Blaine there so I hope they cut back on thier screen time a lot if they do.

I was absolutely disgusted with how Mr. Schue suspended Marley, who went through an eating disorder, because she was uncomfortable with wearing a bikini to school. Does anyone else also find it a tad creepy how a teacher wants a 16 year old girl to show up to school in a seashell bikini? The character of Mr. Schue has gone from a complex character with an interesting story to a character who kind of just disturbs me. He's no longer the inspiring glee club teacher we all love, he's turned flat and seems to be written into the script because he has to be there.
Overall, this episode of Glee was really disappointing and proved that Glee has lost everything it used to stand for. It now sends a message that showing off your body is the best way to express yourself, no matter if you're comfortable or not. It upset me a lot, especially because Glee started when I was just beginning my teenage years and has gotten me through a lot of difficult times in high school. A disgusting part of the story, I'm so disappointed in it.

I was disgusted too, and not because of the eating disorder thing. Former Schue would've praised Marley for sticking to her guns. Current Schue is an idiot character who, like you said, is only written in because he's contractually obligated.

I think she was suspended for not following direction and not being a team player. While I agree it was REALLY stupid to suspend her but she should have come up with a different gaga outfit and told her teammates. But Shue has been wrong in the way he has handled student since episode 2 when he punished Rachel for Push it an none else.

I feel like they should've had Marley say she was a Katy doing Gaga who was doing Katy and then had Schue praise her for ingenuity. But even that would be dumb, kind of like the entire Gaga vs. Katy thing in the first place.

Episode was terrible. The NY parts were the only thing worth watching. They seriously need to dump Lima and ALL of the Newbies and Sam and get the narrative to NY. I would dump Blaine too but we know that won't happen. Adam and Demi are great, it's too bad NY gets 8 minutes of screen time and Lima gets the rest. The Lima cast is a waste of air time.

If current Sam were original Sam, I'd be okay with Sam going to New York as well, but now that they've made him Puck Light with regards to academics, I just can't stand him, which is really sad because I like his voice and his face. I just don't like what they've done to the character.

You have Adam, Demi, Lea, Naya and Chris but they keep on cutting back to the awful jungle crap. I don't get it.

The only good thing about the jungle crap was getting to see Jacob Artist nearly naked. Seriously. That was it.

The writers try to make Sam an important character but they fail. I really hope they dump Sam and his stupid storylines in the second half of the season.

The thing about Sam is that he had SO MUCH potential when he came to McKinley and then they sent him away and made him a teenage stripper and in the process of making him taking his clothes off for money they stripped all of his brains away too. Makes me sad for Trouty Mouth.

Excuse me..I was distracted by Adam Lambert, what happened on the show? I don't know but I loved every minute of Starchild on my TV. His voice..his MTN is all I remember.

Adam Lambert was so good. I have to say he was easily the best and most enjoyable character of the night. He was flat out amazing. Marry The Night was incredable. What a voice really who can sing like that. Also the man is gorgeous.

I am with you on that. Adam Lambert all the way !!!!

I feel like nothing the show did after the Cory/Finn tribute was going to make me happy so I was expecting to not be thrilled by this episode. The problem is that this wasn't a normal tv character death because of Cory dying and so they couldn't handle it the same way shows normally would. Normally when a show kills of a main character they can focus on the grieving process throughout many episodes but in this case that would have been insensitive to the actors. So, as much as I would have liked them to do Finn more justice, I can respect Ryan and his writing team for not exploiting the actors and their grief. However I feel like coming off such a heavy episode, this episode was the wrong choice. It was too upbeat and came off like they were just brushing the death under the rug.
Besides that whole situation I still wasn't thrilled with the episode. I could care less about the high school kids. Ever since I had heard they were moving Kurt and Rachel to NYC and basically writing off most of the other main characters I knew the show was going to be in trouble. Even though Artie and Tina (and technically Sam even if they came in a little later) are part of the original cast, they were always just supporting characters. The show really revolved around Rachel, Finn, Kurt, Quinn and Puck and by removing all those from the Lima mix and replacing them with characters that they haven't really made (speaking for myself) us care about, they made it so half the show is irrelevant. Yes I understand the show is called Glee so making the focus of the show not the Glee club seems strange but I personally would not miss the Glee club aspect at all at this point. Keep giving me the musical numbers in NYC and get Blaine graduated already and out there with Rachel, Kurt, and Santana and I would be in heaven. That is literally probably the perfect show to me at this point and I think Ryan needs to recognize that once all of the original/quasi original cast is graduated, he needs to move on from Lima for the last season and focus on NYC. I would hate to spend half of each episode of the final season focused on people I could care less about.
I do agree though about Adam Lambert. I have always been a fan of his since idol and his talent was definitely a bright light in an otherwise dull episode

That is true RE Finn being more than just a character. I hadn't thought about it like that, but that's a really good point. But yes, this was the wrong episode to come back with as it felt trivializing of the fact that he's gone now.

I'm with you...Adam in every episode, no matter what the theme, plot, or dialogue...just give him the microphone and let the boy sing!!!
