What would it be? I know a lot of people have bene complaining about inconsistencies. Some episodes are really boring, but others are really good. IMO, when it's good, IT'S DAMN GOOD! And that trumps any boredom I may have felt before. The storyline inconsistencies are kinda a must to be able to focus on the music. But, I do feel sometimes like I am watching an hour long PSA. And I like my messages scattered, in little pieces. If I eat a whole preach pie, it becomes unbearable. That, I can live without.

I agree about the plot inconsistencies. We go from Jesse being sweet and caring, to him not being there at all, to him being sweet again, to him throwing an egg in Rachel's face. WTF? Some episodes shine in terms of music, and others in terms of plot. While I love both, it would be great if the writers could try and combine the two more regularly. But no matter what.... I'm still a Gleek for life :)

I agree about the inconsistencies and messages, but also agree the character and plot inconsistencies are due to ignoring character and plot (for that minute) to deliver a message.  I would think that that was just not good writing ... except the show is so well written overall (to get the songs in and the one liners which this forum points out we all love) that any criticism for bad writing isn't justified.  Maybe the time constraints mean they shoehorn some messages in.  Often they work very well (and what GREAT writing was it that Mercedes can sing "I Am Beautiful" to the assembly to Sue's horror and then Sue's reputation is saved by the journalist thinking it was Sue's program).  I suppose when someone throws in a line about Sarah Palin or Ann Coulter it's just Hollywood in-crowd in-jokes politics, being clever for the people they go to cocktail parties with, and I do think they missed by a lot regarding what was going on between Kurt and Finn and the "fag" word that got the lecture --- but they do succeed with the messages for the most part (except for some of the character inconsistencies which we have to shrug off -- like Quinn delivering a very mature lecture on diet and self-image ... which, in a novel, they could have indicated her figuring this out, but in a 1 hour TV show with musical numbers taking up some of that time, are just a matter of being rushed to make their statements within the time constraints).

So, if I could change one thing it would be that they make their messages secondary to plot and characterization ... and, thus, let them be more natural which would make them more on the mark.

See, the thing is that these plot inconsistencies are so minor that for me, it doesn't take away anything from the show. While I did not funny comprehend the 'Rachel-moving-on-from-Finn-within-half-an-episode-to-Jesse' ordeal.

@GG_Bass. TBH, I just thought the writers FFWD the second half of that episode. The whole thing really. I remember being confused when I saw Finn and Rachel were now a couple. And, I'm afraid to ask, but feel like I must. What in the world is going on in your icon? LMAO

Ohhh nothin', just two extremely hot males infesting a nice, cold Popsicle.

I'd lend a "hand" to these boys any day with their Popsicles, though. It looks like it's melting, don't you agree?

 don't you agree?

LOL you make me . And I think I would, too. But I'll put the parenthesis around popsicles, instead of hand.  

I'm sorry, was that too dirty.......

I'm actually at the point where I don't even care what went through his mind. I don't care if he's used as a prop for Finnchel, or Shelby.  I'm even close to not caring if he and Rachel are never a couple again. 

I just want him back. Saying those clever, funny lines.  Giving those smirks and acts of superiority.  Singing with that angelic voice he has.

Please, just give me more Jesse!

I'll lend not only both of my hands to Jonathan Groff, but the rest of my body as well.
