Glee Review: Give Your Heart a Break

(Cont.) That being said, I found this episode great! i haven't felt like that for glee in a long time! I loved the song selection, I don't like Finn at all, but I found myself not bothered for him for once. I even felt for him even if I'm all team Rachel! i just loved how the storylines felt real and natural. That is some character development and growth. Please, Glee writers, give us good writing more often and please in the process get rid lf this mr. Shue imposter you gave us for a while now. Either don't give him a storyline outsideof the student, or give us something we can connect to on an episode basis, not very once in a while.
Oh Santana, I missed you! At least Naya! i love to hear her sing and this was perfectly emotionnal. Even if on the performance, my award goes to Darren Criss. This was painful to watch. If you didn't buy Blaine suffering before, THAT WAS IT and you can't take it away from him. And maybe I'll watch the episode again...Glee, I hope you're back for me because I missed you!
On the new characters, I kinda like Marley but Jake, no no...but I have to say I don't really care at all...we didn't saw them a lot this week and it was all fine for me! I uselessly hope it will be always like that but I fear not...

(Cont.) Yes it was his choice but it doesn't change the fact that he left his friends behind and his life. i do not say he doesn't like people at McKingley but we haven't really see him making a real friendship with someone beside Kurt (except maybe Rachel) all that to say that no, cheating is not right, but the characters, like real people, are not supposed to perfect and unfortunately cheating happen. What I do not like is people traiting Kurt as a saint and like Miranda's review (and comment) said it both are not blameless but it is not a crime for her to "sympathised" (it may not be the right word) more with Blaine.
It's a review, not a recap and she's entitled to her own opinion and how I already said, we saw more of Blaine's hurt than Kurt. Geez people, when Glee's reviewers are hard on The show you're not happy and when I read a positive review, some people still find a way to attack the reviewer...
And please, it's not because Blaine's is doing all sort of things in high school and is seing a lot of people that he cannot feel lonely, just as Kurt can feel lonely even when he's busy with work...I'm just making it clear for all those who jump on their high horse to defend Kurt from a supposely biased reviewer and put all the blame on Blaine.

Come on people! I didn't find the review biased as a lot of people are saying...
Well, I am not a Klaine Shipper but I did feel Blaine's pain over the episode and the previous one. Just read Miranda's comments to see her explanations before attacking her of being biased... Or Guenon's, it explains it very well. Yes, I haven't always been a fan of Kurt. Actually, I only started to really like him at the end of season 3 but for once, I'm happy that the writing does not make Kurt a saint like it may have been found in the past.
Their "break up" were given enough time an development (meaning more than 1 ep) to see the crisis building and I'm very happy with it. Yes, it was Blaine who cheated but the guy has been miserable alone. I do not say Kurt doesn't feel lonely and he should be able to live his dreams, but you cannot say that ON SCREEN we have seen Kurt's loneliness that much, since he is righfully busy. Blaine on the other hand said it himself last week, he changed school for Kurt.

I am far from saying that the show is perfect (which is definitively not true) but it succeded to put me in a very very good mood and that's all I ask from Glee!!

ahah! As a Rachel Berry fan, I am just on the moon! I wouldn't be surprise if Kurt still finds his way to NY. Look at Santana, she has no direct plan in the city but she's still going.
I really wouldn't have minded if Kurt got accepted but it didn't really bother me. I know that a lot of people find really hard to accept that Rachel is the main character and thus, of course are not happy when the main focus is on her but what can you do? I totally understand, because I'm experiencing the same thing on other shows, but you have to accept it and move on. That's how it works. You have to say that Kurt has been the focus of heavy storylines the past year.
I would have been very very very disappointed if Rachel didn't make it to NY. Yes, I watch Glee to be happy (even if the shows didn't really do it in this season 3) and wanted my Happy-Rachel-Ending, so I have nothing to complain about.

And John's arrogance? For my part I think John believe in his friendship with Sherlock and that's whu he's here for him. That's what friends do, and as Sherlock is a slighty different case, their dynamic will obviously change.

I really like this website, it's always nice to see opinion of others but when I see a Gossip Girl episode rated 4/5 and Sherlock only 3/5 I just wonder if we live in the same world, or if it's an american thing. I know it's not the same reviewer but it was just an example to present my shock. (Yes, I watch/used to watch GG, so I know the quality and please, this just make my heart hurt).
But what comes out of this review is that, sorry to say, you don't know the characters at all and obviously missed the central element of the show, John and Sherlock friendship, if all you can see is John PTSD! I really don't know what this come from by the way. This episode is a strong one regarding S/J friendship and Sherlock's own demons! Lestrade is a great addition "Greg? That's how you call yourself now" or something like that, Sherlock "experiment" on John...and poor poor Henry!

But anyway, I don't necessarily ship Elena with anyone so...and I do think Damon is better in the scenes without her. How great was he with Rebekah in thsis episode? Not even romantically but still., and I think Elena tends to suck Damon's fun side, like he's always worried about her...on Caroline's side well, she's still my favorite and her freak out for Tyler was a great scene! Candice I love you! Oh, and I am so glad Elijah didn't die! Even if he didn't do anything, it was great to see him! And Rebekah too!

On Elena and Damon, I think that flashback was really too late, they should have introduced it earlier in the season. It screams very easy plot when Elena said "if I met you first" and then boom! Vampire Elena will remember just a few minutes after she said this... Really? I am really not in the shipping "war" concerning Delena & Stelena, but I quite happy when Elena chose Stefan. It's like it redeemed her a little bit in my eyes and I don't really know why. Maybe a reminder of "it's always going to be Stefan", at least she's consistant! But of course, it was before this whole flashback damon thing, so I guess it doesn't count anymore...
