I think the reviewer aks too much. Since the pilot, I've only been invested in Rachel's story (you cannot even imagine how many scenes with the newbies I've had to fastforward during season 4). So yesterday episode was good because Rachel has had conversation with Will and it leads to her being able to leave to go back to her real home: NYC, knowing that New Directions will be in good hands with Will.
Absolutely the worst episode of the year. An hour long "cargument" is 55 minutes too long. How many HPD officers were shot at the shootout? Yet the team has their usual "ohana" moment at the shrimp truck laughing and joking.
There are serious problems with any of the big three getting into a permanent serious relationship - it would change the entire dynamic of the show & would probably lead to its downfall - if Tony or Tim or Gibbs married or Ducky or Abi, their concerns & priorities would have to change - Gibbs without his carpentry? Abi without the nuns? Tim without his gaming? Tony without his flirting? No way!

I may be a minority but I hate the therapy. It makes fun of the very real traumatic issues Steve's had and which they seemed ready to address, but never did. It also makes light of the way Danny makes fun of the painful past in Steve's family. Danny thinks Steve is the mean one? Danny says horrible things to Steve, more than usual this year. I'm confused how they are even friends. I'm glad at least Steve reminded his dense, callous partner he didn't grow up in a 2 parent family with siblings and PTA parents and Disneyland vacations. The whole "are they gay" long, drawn out, overused meme also seems to imply there is something "off" about being gay, it's a humorous condition, a joke to be gay and a cop. These jokes play out like middle school boys mocking a classmate. One of my gay buds has stopped watching. I don't blame him. We're on the verge of equal marriage rights everywhere in America. Thanks for standing in for the regressive Old Guard 5-0. Gay is not a punchline.
If you've watched the show from the beginning then you had to have known what Harvey and Donna have is special. We've always known Donna was in love with Harvey.........and vice versa ....but Harvey puts up this real tough guy persona and rarely says how he feels. This episode was one of the best of the season.........
I honestly thought this was a solid episode with good laughs. You can't keep charging at the audience with the main storyline.. at least not in a show like Glee. Add to it that last week was the Klaine-Brittana wedding, so it makes perfect sense that the four of them are missing on their honeymoons.. so this was the perfect timing to fleshout the characters of the new kids a bit. I understand that it's not much use since the show is ending in three episodes.. but it's still better when u see them perform that u know a bit about them; it will just make you feel more to them when they perform are nationals or whatever.And to ur point about the new kids being worse than the Marley bunch.. i dont agree. i found that bunch extremely whiny, and that was the time when the show was a mess with that dreadlocks guy and the irish green kid.. i'm happy with the new ones.. the sort of make me wish there's a season seven to see more of them.
Excellent episode. Hands down one of my favorite shows out there.
Absolutely agree, best new show of the season!
I still think Natalia was wrong in ripping up Cristela's acceptance letter. However, I have never had to face the same obstacles a lot of people face.I suppose Natalia's heart was in right place when she did what she did. She was trying to spare her daughter's feelings. It was funny when Daniela asked her mom if she ripped hers up too. I like both Josh and Maddie and Josh and Cristela moments. It would change the office dynamic if Josh and Cristela became a thing. Office romance's rarely end on a good note. I like things the way they are anyway. Maddie's job in the mail room was pretty hilarious.
Well, I love the show and thought tonight's episode was great. I unfortunately have a sister who follows ratings and has told me that it's not doing so well. I will be severely bummed if Cole is dead and if the show does not continue. I'm fine letting the mystery unravel despite being confused by the time travel, probably because, unlike you, I was with Cole from the start.
The "live" ratings are low for both 12 Monkeys and Helix. However, the 3+DVR numbers are being taken into consideration. It's a Friday night after all. We've got a weekly campaign going on Twitter to generate buzz, you should join us!
