lechatnoir why would she show pictures of her "cuddling children with torn t-shirts" when her work is for animals and not children? I get what you are saying about people choosing "Save Africa" as a general campaign to show the world "they care" but I really don't think that's the case here.
Plus it drives me crazy that they like Aylin for her story. If that is the case there is no point in having The Glee Project. If they were choosing based on character then they could make that choice on day one. Why have 12 weeks of competition? Nothing has changed in that regard since the beginning. But if we are talking about talent- then over that course of time it's worth it to see people grow as singers, actors, and performers.
She doesn't have the emotional range to tell any story other than a girl who rebelled against her religion because she's horny
-Fortinbras I could not agree with you more.
I've come to the conclusion that I barely even believe Aylin's struggle with her religion is as bad as she makes it out to be. Considering her family let her leave to join an acting competition for 3 months.
I am also going to assume that real Muslim girls would prefer to see other girls like themselves on tv. Meaning in head garb and practicing their religion but still fitting in with the rest of their peers. Not "revolting" against what they believe in.
Most people seem to like Aylin but I can't stand her or Lily and I'll be pretty disappointed if either of them makes the show.
I don't understand what happened to Nellie on this show. Ryan always talks about how he wants to write from the inspiration of who these competitors are. That has been true for everyone on the show except for Nellie. She was the only one that they continuously asked to play a role that was so different then who she is. I don't see them asking Aylin to play someone shy and awkward. I agree with many people on here that Nellie's real persona could have been an interesting character. But I actually was not a huge fan of her voice. She had moments of greatness but at times I thought she also sounded a little strange. Not something more training can't fix though so I wish her well in her future career wherever it may be. I think Shanna has the best voice on the show by far. I think Blake is the best actor (and I think he did make a smart choice by not being overly flamboyant with his Boy George portrayal). I Most people seem to like Aylin but I can't stand her or Lily and I'll be pretty disappointed if either of them makes the show.
Was anyone else reminded of Voldemort from Harry Potter when they saw Russell in the end?
Guenon I agree with everything you've said. Is Ryan Murphy such a bad writer that he will sacrifice talent for a good inspiration? He's asking these kids to do his job for him if you ask me. Last season there was a better mix of talent (in all 3 areas-dancing, singing, acting), personality, and story. As a big fan of Glee I really prefer to see someone who can sing and act. I hated Samual last season. They chose him so they could write to his religious story but when it came time for the show, he acted terribly. The only person who I think is a really talented singer from this bunch is Shanna. The only other people I think I'd actually like to see on the show (even though I don't think they are phenomenal singers) are Abraham, Ally, Mario, and maybe Dani and Charlie.
Kimmie I understand your frustration but I think many of your questions will be answered next season. Since we know all of the actors have expressed interest in returning to the show and Ryan Murphy has said he would keep on anyone who wanted to stay, I think we can see these stories extend into next season. In fact it would give even more of a reason to see characters who have otherwise gone far away.
I think the reason Bieste's story worked so much better with Puck was because so many people don't like being told what to do. Whether it's realistic or not for her to share her story with the girls, her instinct was to feel defensive against their requests. Maybe it was hard for her to accept advice on her relationship from teenagers. It might make her feel stupid or might make her feel she isn't giving a fair chance to Cooter. I do think in situations like that, that people end up making the right decision based more on subtle help then outright advice. It wasn't enough to hear someone tell her what she should do. She saw herself in Puck and knew she wanted for herself what she wanted for him.
I don't think there was a single song performance I did not enjoy. Though I never like the other schools performances that much (even though they are also very talented singers).
Does anyone else think Puck as Blaine looked a little like Jim Brewer?
