@Lelarose I agree. While I love how the characters have started off; they're bland now. Raj has no hope of ever being with a woman without alcohol, Sheldon's unique qualities will prevent him from ever living a normal lifestyle without depending on anyone, Howard will always be sheltered by his mother and therefore will not be able to commit to anyone. Leonard has the best chance of living a normal, happy life in my eyes. But the show can't do anything of what I said. That would mean taking risks, which others may like and some may not. Would I ever want Raj to get over his mutism when he's around girls? Yes and no. Would I ever want Howard to stop being so dependant on his mother? Yes... then no.
But I really think you might want to resign from reviewing Glee. I see so many positive reviews from happy, up-beat reviewers who ignore all the show's flaws. Perhaps the Glee fans just want an optimistic, song happy reviewer.
And I haven't even watched the episode yet and I agree with everything you said about Sam and Mercedes. How can I root for them if I don't know them? Same applies to the other big guy. Glee's big cast makes the show unique, but is also an extreme weakness.
I've said this before. Glee has over 20 main characters unlike a normal cast with perhaps 6. Glee doesn't have time to develop its characters. On top of the fact they inject music perhaps (this is a guesstimate) 20 minutes of the show? I will give it 20-25 minutes of pure dialogue per episode. There just is simply NO time for any kind of individual character development, couples development (besides Finchel maybe), or group development. Some characters don't utter a word per episode, sometimes a sentence if it's a lucky day. You're reviewing Glee like a normal show. While I agree with many of your points, this show is one where I turn off my brain and just enjoy the singing. I haven't even watched this episode yet :P.
That means Melissa... made out with her half brother. ... can I get a gross?
Oh my God, they do look similar!
I'm so sick of these Chair roadblocks. Either break them up, FOR GOOD, or just make them get together! I hate being teased for too long, and hate it even more when the things stopping an "epic" couple from being together are so stupid. And please, if Blair does divorce Louis and breaks it off with Chuck, give her time to be single! If they throw her right into Dan's arms it would just be further character assassination for Blair, not that the version of her now doesn't suck already. This show is an absolute joke. I laugh at every one of Serena's lines, and laugh like all hell during Louis'. I treat this show as a crappy, comedic soap opera.
@intern Exactly! It's like they think throwing these stupid, unrealistic storylines will boost up the ratings but in the fact the opposite is happening! The storylines are so contrived I can't even believe them, despite the fact that the show is fictional.
I adore Serena's outfit. Blair's? Not so much.
I'd love a Klaus stalking Caroline. Like, a beyond creepy obsession with her. Make Klaus a villian, stp!
