Glee Series Finale: Dreams Come True

I agree about "2009"; it didn't belong and didn't offer anything new other than someone FINALLY sang "Popular" on Glee (I was wanting someone to do a Rachel Berry "Popular" makeover years ago). Finn was missing from that episode and it was REALLY obvious and heartbreaking. I would have rather had a two hour episode like "Dreams Come True". I would have liked to see more of Tina, Artie, Mercedes, and Sam's futures. Sam was a big part of this last season but was barely featured in the finale. I would have liked to see the former members more than just a quick camera shot as they all sang: Puck, Matt (Matt!!!), Mike, Lauren, Sugar, Quinn, Brittany, Santana, Jake, Ryder, Joe...they were all there but you barely saw a shot of them before the camera went to someone else. I'm glad they focused on the core members who started it all....and Blaine. All that said, I cried. Glee has went wonderful, it has been terrible. I have hated the way they've treated some characters (Tina) and wish they would have touched on country music BEFORE the finale. But when you live a life like that, all of your high school years in choir and theater, the show speaks to you. I hear "A Thousand Miles" and I remember someone suddenly playing it on the piano and everyone immediately singing along. I Hear "Hey Ya" and I remember being in a classroom goofing around before we went out on stage at competition. Glee, which was more dramatic than what we experienced in real life, still represented us. "Being a part of something special makes you special," even if you're only special in the eyes of a small, special group.

I really liked Mack when he first joined the team and the only comfort in Tripp's death was knowing that Mack has still lived. Now I'm really wishing Tripp had lived and Mack hadn't. I liked Bobbi too but I am not a fan of their secret agenda and Mack's turning on the team.

"How do people just burst into song? How does everybody just magically know the lyrics?" Spend an hour with a bunch of theater/chorus people. It happens. A lot. And harmonies aren't that difficult if you are already a singer. I spent all of my years in school as an alto and find myself instinctively singing the harmonies or creating my own for basically any song I sing along to. I have watched a group of high schools gather around a piano when someone starts playing and easily join in and start singing along. I probably have video somewhere too. And yeah that's a select group of people but it does happen and those are the kinds of people in Glee.

The actor was Michael Weston and he's been on just about everything. Burn Notice, Psych, White Collar, Law and Order: SVU, House, CSI: NY, CSI, Supernatural, Scrubs....

I work on a naval base and all of the navy and marine guys I know where their dress uniforms to events where they need to dress up. Whether this is required or not I don't know, but I'd say it's probably the same with the other military branches, hence why Puck is in his uniform at the wedding. The bigger issue for me is how under utilized he is and the glaringly obvious absence of Quinn yet again.

"I'd like to see Mary cut the condescending tone when she talks to Edith and actually show some sisterly love." THANK YOU.

Daniela really was plain mean, especially with Felix saying he thought she looked fine. I kind of wish they had done ore with that since Felix and Cristela butt heads so much. Maddie was HILARIOUS and it was great seeing have a bit of a plotline AND be kind to her co-workers.

Loved it! I could have done without Steve Rogers/Captain America constantly being thrown at me (and I LOVE Cap) but otherwise it was great! I agree, it does remind me a bit of Bomb Girls.

........what about Edith? Edith had a story too and not just as a plot device for Thomas.

Loved it! It's like Ella Enchanted, Princess Bride, and Spamalot all rolled into one.
