@Lucy Thank you!! Sometimes I feel like the only one who loathes John and Katherine. I actually don't feel they are great parents, they only seem involved when one of their kids is doing something they don't like or they suspect it. I never felt they were very aware or even knew their kids. Also they are supremely judgmental and classist. They can be very insensitive from a cultural standpoint and they have an air of entitlement that is deplorable. I'm over the Zarra storyline as well. The Daphne and Chef relationship is inappropriate. I felt bad for Regina and Travis. I would love to see him explored more. Toby and Emmett was great.
@joyeful I agree with you completely. I thought it was delightful. I caught that empathy nuance as well and thought it was a great touch. I like the chemistry Watson and Holmes are slowly building. They're slow playing it which is more realistic to me. The slow path towards a genuine friendship. I think both actors aren't getting enough credit for how well there doing from those who are insistent on disliking the series just because. Let it stand in its own.
I'm probably one of the only fans who doesn't bust Angelo's chops regularly. I was happy that he finally told Daphne to let it go. Everyone is on this man's case all the time, half of them don't have the right to be and he's in that precarious position of being damned if he does and dammed if he doesn't. I'm happy she accepted the strides he's been trying to make for some time. The Kennish parents continue to frustrate me. I laughed at them realizing just how out of touch they are with their kids. Katherine and Toby was nice though. Kid needed some attention. The Bay tag thing was dull and although the new deaf girl lingered awkwardly for the duration of her screentime,I like the prospect of new girls for him and Toby. Loved Regina with Simone.

I'm with the other commenters and the review. Charlie thus far is one of those annoying self righteous protagonist whose sense of morality in relation to reality is unbelievably warped. Being the moral compass doesn't mean that a persoÃ± has to lack common sense. I also resent the gender roles thing between Charlie and her brother. He doesn't have to come across so helpless and bordering on pathetic in order fir Charlie to be the strong independent woman. Although he showed promise and heart in this episode and it has me wondering if he'll somehow end up joining the militia himself. And Nate the stalker just sucks. I can't even tolerate the star crossed lover's bit. I'm so over it and it hasn't even begin.
-seeing Puck.-Artie singing is always a highlight. He has that smooth white boy soul that's both charming and irresistible.-Puck? Definitely. The blink and you'll miss them appearances from any of the graduates who aren't Kurtchel is a bit frustrating. Mostly because of how they chose to use them.-Neither honestly. The first one came out of left field and the last one doesn't have the impact because Finn isn't there.-Sure, but only if they do artists worthy of a tribute. Britney and Beiber just don't cut it.
I honestly don't expect too much out of Glee, so I feel comfortable saying that despite dismal expectations, I agree with this review in its entirety. Unequivocally. I was pleasantly surprised by the premiere. I actually enjoy the new characters even though I admit they are pieces and /or carbon copies of other characters. This episode didn't do it for me though. Bored me to tears. Aside from being fundamentally opposed to Britney Spears getting one tribute episode let alone two..they threw random stuff at is with no cohesion whatsoever. I Loved seeing Puck again,but I was under the impression the brothers meeting would essentially be Jake's arc for the season. Not poorly, inexplicably, and quickly thrown in for a minute in the second episode. And yeah recycled stories galore. Complete concurrence with this review.
They really do need to use Toby a bit more. They can afford to do it too since his ASL has improved a great deal. I actually enjoyed him interacting with Angelo. They could make quite the unexpected pair as far as bonding over music etc. Toby tends to lay low and not take a stance on things and Angelo could use someone in his corner who won't make him feel so awkward. John can be stiff, distant, and Imho a total a -hole so I like the balance Angelo brings as another male and how they kind of bring out the better in one another. I laughed at how the book stuff backfired. Katherine should have seen that Regina made a better story. It was as though that air of superiority that she and John seem to have hit her and how unrelatable that can be to the masses finally hit her. I loved her vulnerability with regina blaming herself fir not knowing. Fantastic exchange between the two. I was embarrassed for Daphne and I cringed for Bay too. I love how they recognize each other as sisters and have that bond now.
Great interview! I look forward to seeing him on the show.
