He'll be differentiating himself from a brother he doesn't even know and that chip in his shoulder seems far deeper and more complicated than Puck's. I think he'll manage to be his own character harboring his own untapped potential. Kitty didn't touch me and unique was fine.I hope they keep that balance between the old kids and the new and I really hope they don't let Rachel continue to dominate. Now the others get to shine yge real shame is previous characters like Mercedes and Mike still never really got that chance. Brody is great. I'm happy fir Kurt. A small part of me misses the initial close friendship he had with Mercedes that magically transferred itself to Rachel. Burt is still one of my favorite Tv dads. I thought the episode was balanced nicely and did a good job of laying down the foundation for the season.
I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't expect to enjoy it so much. I can understand the argument of rehashed storylines. For that very reason, I knew Sam would be the sensible one and go to Marley. But the fact is, they spent so much time for three seasons focusing on Rachel at the expense of darn near every other character that they could afford to make the new kids hybrids of previous characters because there id still so much story left untold. I didn't expect to like the new kids either but I do. Marley is sweet and endearing in a way Rachel wasn't. She's laud back and has a great voice that is along the lines of music I can actually enjoy. Jake with the exception of being super hot and having a striking, uncanny resemblance to Puck. Great casting..was instantly intriguing. I think there is more story there than him being Puck 2.0.
I don't feel bad for Simone with the exception of the website thing. I loathe the Kennishes regularly with their holier than thou attitude and judgment. I have yet to see why Angelo is treated with such disdain. The only ones who should take issue with him are Daphne and her grandmother but everyone else...too much. I feel like we're being told that ar shouldn't like this guy and the Angelo of present hasn't given me reason to dislike him. I don't even hold against him that he bailed on Daphne in the past because even though it wasn't honorable it was understandable. I don't like the direction of the chef storyline but so far I like him it was great to see that deaf jerk of a guy still working at the car wash. I like the kid.
I absolutely adore this show. Ray Romano was fantastic and I instantly loved his character. It was great seeing Paul from American Idol love the tone of his voice and that crest white smile! I have a like dislike relationship with Haddie but I'm going to miss her. Its funny how with a family like hers she undoubtedly spent all this time dying to get away but they're too close and too fun and she clearly will miss them. Amber working at the studio id perfect I just wish she'd work on keeping her professional life separate from her personal one in the romance department. I just adore this show. It was a great premiere.
Incredible episode! Hats off to Chris Gorham for q job well done directing and his acting was incredible in this episode. Auggie is my favorite character but I found him to be even more riveting than ever. I loved the faith he had in his friend and the lengths he was willing to go for her. You cannot buy that sort of breathtaking devotion. That is what makes their relationship so amazing. I even enjoyed the bit in her dream sequence about it not being their dance or their time. A lovely nod to the Auggie and Annie shippers out there without tiling up those fans who simply enjoy their deep friendship as id. I found myself sort of missing Simon as well. I also enjoyed Joan in this. I'm always fond of her maternal ways regarding Auggie and Annie both. While so many aspects of Lenas actions seemed implausible, it didn't interfere with my enjoying the ride. I loved the nod to the pilot's perfume moment with Auggie identifying her scent. Fantastic.
I look forward to the callie and Derek bit if its anything like the intriguing relationship between Derek and Christina when she was suffering from ptsd. I still could care less about Arizona which translates to me not being remotely interested in calzona. I'm still on overload from the overabundance of screentime they had two seasons ago.
Returning in Owen's body. I don't know what to think about that! I loved that Grayson finally said it but it almost felt like it came out of nowhere because they haven't been getting much focus or even feeling connected. I haven't seen much of the friendship they have coming thru so I almost forgot that he was kind of into her. Yeah the kiss was a bit of a miss, I didn't even realize that was what they were doing...I don't know, and Owen walking in then. I just cringed during most of that. I love this show and the characters. There were some great moments in the finale but I think my biggest problem was it seemed choppy and incohesive. It was like they ran out of time telling the stories or dawdled slow playing all the storylines and then remembered they only had one episode left and rushed everything into the finale. I look forward to next season.
This show has always had a campy feel and cheesy moments but I found there was an abundance of them in this episode and not always in the best of ways. I found both the court cases were rushed. They were I interesting in their own right, especially the intelligence one, but they weren't fleshed out enough and were resolved too quickly in favor of getting to the "more important "happenings of the episode. Luke reinserting himself into Jane /Debs life again after lacking presence for most of the season was contrived. Real Jane was an interesting development and she wasn't nearly as pleasant. Don't think I'm going to like her. I haven't a clue why she wouldn't go on and be happy and I don't understand how she could say deb screwed up her life. Her returning should be interesting, how she returned with that button again was uninspired and Fred, why so reckless,?
Gabriel Mann all the way.
