"There's a good guy in there somewhere". Sometimes I think you're way to quick to vilify Fitz. Or maybe you're just too much on the Jake/Olivia ship. However it lends s scent of bias in an otherwise very good review.
@Renee, those rumours were exactly that, rumours. It's long been debunked.
@Karen, it was a scheduling conflict, yes.
So true, it's like I couldn't get full on happy for all the happy things going because of Finn's obvious absence.
I actually liked all the different components of the episode. Sue, Rachel, Artie/Kitty, even Tina.
The wedding SL is still a bit ridiculous though. Still can't help but feel like Ryan's preaching his agenda through Blaine. The proposal I found adorable though, can't blame Kurt for saying yes. Also, you mentioned Kitty doing a 180, but what about all the characters that were so against the Finchel wedding. I really don't think Kitty's stretch was that much of a leap.
So overall I liked it. Just felt a bit disjointed.
The fact that we've known Artie was in to making movies all along doesn't make it any less out of the blue, we've known this about Mercedes as well, the only difference, she's just been featured less.
Lastly, I really love how they showcased Mercedes and Mike in this episode, more so than the first time they came to help. We needed all those doses of their talent to survive the episodes we won't see them.
For once Miranda, I have to respectfully disagree. I'm usually in sync with your reviews, but I feel like this one was way way off. This one was one of my favorites of the entire season. This was also probably one of the best tribute episodes Glee has ever done, because it actually focused a lot more on story, although I have to agree, the premise of the tribute was forced.
The thing I really don't get is, why give the episode 3 stars, if it only really seems that you dislike the premise of the tribute and the Mercedes' SL. I think it deserves at least 4 stars.
Also, I may be a bit bias, because I love Mercedes, but I enjoyed her SL and it still touched me, although I get what you're saying about that part, but what bugs me about what you said here was that the SL was completely out of the blue and we're supposed to care, yet so are a lot of other SL's though, like Santana moving to NY, everything Quinn, even Artie's SL in this episode. The fact that we've known Artie was in to making movies all along doesn't make it any less out of the blue, we've known this about Mercedes as well, the only difference, she's just been featured less.
I guess I'm in the minority here, but I really don't think it was Santana's place to call Finn to confront Brody and it was even less appropriate for Finn to beat the crap out of somebody for being dishonest when Rachel has been just as dishonest. Finn was all kinds of awesomeness during this episode, but those last few minutes was pure childishness on his part and when he said that "future wife" bit, it went straight to creepy. Rachel should've been given the facts and allowed to make her own decisions. Instead Finn and Santana are making all of her life choices for her. Instead of spending countless hours insulting Brody and telling Rachel half-truths. She should have told Rachel the minute she found out. So yeah, I love Santana, but this was a huge gripe for me.
If only this happened to Charmed as well.
This episode was ehh! I really didn't expect anything more, at least it was better than last year's episode. Oddly enough it wasn't the timeline that bothered, since it was said right in the beginning that it's five stories, coming together, although I really don't know how they came together. The sue-Marley story was my favorite and I may be the only that enjoyed the Bram story.
Are we going to have round tables for the last few episodes? 0
I still don't agree about scratching NY. It provides a nice balance and refreshes the entire show.
Enjoyed the episode, but this episode really highlighted a problem I have with the Mkinley side at the moment. The lack of balance between SO's between the seniors(except Blaine) and the newbies. I enjoy the newbies but I really don't want the entire focus to be just them. Also, I could care less for Blaine at this point. Too much whining.
