Like many other fans, I didn't like the finale. Full circle is one thing, making an entire series mute is another. Why did Ted and Robin go through all that just to end up in literally the same place they were in season 1? It makes all that growth pointless. Also, when they revealed the mother, they managed to create a sweet, quirky character and we all loved her. Considering all the hype and expectation around this one character, I think they did a great job. Then they kill her off. But not only did they kill her off, no one seemed to care all that much. Yes, it's apparently been six years but we didn't see that. I have a parent who died 11 years ago, I'm supportive of my mom dating but when she talks about him, I still get a little sad. Those kids jumped straight to Robin, without even a single thought about their dead mother. Also, we never saw Ted mourn.So it looks like he went from marrying Tracey and having this amazing life with her...to Robin again. That's part of the problem with all of those flashbacks, we get that there's supposed to be time passing but because we were getting so many of them, it didn't really feel like it. Barney and Robin divorcing. Why did you put them back together in the first place then? You spent a season getting them to the alter. The only storyline I liked was Barney becoming a father. That was sweet. The rest of the finale was a mashed together mess.

Just as I was beginning to like Tank! I wish Bay hadn't cheated on him with Emmett, it cheapens their re-union, especially after what she's been through. Weren't we supposed to get a stronger, wiser Bay out of all this? It's one thing for them to confess their mutual feelings but it's another to hurt someone else in the process. As for Daphne, I've been having trouble backing her as a character. I don't really like Campbell, he's just so smug sometimes! But at the same time, Jorge is a bit old to be hitting on a high school girl. Meanwhile Daphne is basking in the attention, it's kind of annoying. I think Daphne should be single for once, her boy drama just makes me want to smack her. John is still an ass, I don't think Kathryn would have accused Renzo if it wasn't for John weighing in. Instead she would have called her publisher right away. I know people don't change over night but John has had so many opportunities and Renzo even helped him save his marriage...AFTER JOHN BASICALLY KICKED HIM OUT OF HIS HOUSE! Ugh. As for Regina, I feel really bad for her. She wants to be successful and keep her integrity in tack...Good luck with that. Yet, I think Adrianna was being a bit harsh. But this is why you don't mix personal with business, if Regina hadn't brought in East Riverside this would never have been a problem. Sure, her boss still would have been an asshole but he would have been far away from her friends. As for Toby...Why isn't he in college? His marriage fell apart but Nikki wasn't living with him so he could have at least have completed a semester in the six months she was gone and then after she extended her stay, he could have finished off his freshman year. I get his decision to take a trip after a crappy heartbreak but what's stopping him from re-applying to Wash-U? He would make a great teacher.

The Good Wife Review: The Unexpected

I'm with Carissa on this one. Diane's got more balls than the NBA. She'll get it done. As for the Florrick divorce, one can dream. And I don't mind surprises, if Peter and Eli didn't rig the election then I can't wait to see who did. Maybe it was Matthew Perry's character. I'll stay tuned.

How Puck ended up the ONLY guy on this show with Integrity

Yay, Im glad people have noticed that Puck is a great guy after all. But Im not shipping Quinn and Puck as a couple...At least not anymore. I used to want them together back when Quinn was pregnant but I've changed my mind.  Quinn's behaviour in these last couple of episodes has changed my mind. She's a really bad cheater (as if there's every a good one but you get what I mean) and she should know better by now. BUT that's not my problem with her. Quinn and Puck started on the same path, both super popular and both bullies. Puck changed for the better after his fall from grace but Quinn put on a uniform again and did the same thing she always has. She's mean to Rachel even though Rachel was the only one that would give her the time of day when she was pregnant. Also while on the Cheerios she was sucking up to Sue, the woman that kicked her while she was down. Not cool.

 

Rachel and Puck are cute together, he's the only one that's ever given her any positive feedback on a consistant level. Hmmm...Maybe I don't want them as a couple. He's a good friend to her and in high school you're lost without someone that cares.

How Puck ended up the ONLY guy on this show with Integrity

In Season 1 Puck was a jerk. More than a jerk, a bully. He was the ring leader of the football bullies and poured cruel, cruel ice drinks on helpless outcasts. He locked Artie in a porta pottie and then purposely rolled it over. He was awful to his best friend Finnn, sleeping with his girl friend and insulting his choice to join Glee club. He also slept with anything that would lie still long enough. He tossed people with low self esteem into the dumpster, signafying he felt like they were trash to be thrown out. Noah Puckerman was a f**king asshole.

But I've noticed over the course of the last two seasons Puck has slowly been pulled from the Dark Side and now is the only guy with any integrity. This spot was left vacant by Finn, who used to be the some what confused moral compass of the group. Now with Finn after Quinn, doing what Puck did to him but without the following remorse that Puck showed, Puck has taken over that role.  You all might think I'm insane for saying this and I might have said the same thing last week but hear me out.

 

Lets start with Bully Puck. Puck joined New Directions for reasons that were less then honest. He dennied being friends with anyone in the Glee club and was just as mean to them as he was before. He even spray painted Finn at one point. All bad, his behavior is not being excused here. But after he joined Glee and got to know Artie he stopped the football players from rolling him over in the toliet for a second time. After his "rep" went down he started dating Mercedes, again for all the wrong reasons. But again, what she said to him really came through. She broke up with him for throwing kids in the dumpster and since then, Puck hasn't tossed a single kid. At least there was no mention of it. I can't remember if he ever apologized to Jacob (kid with pouffy hair) or if that was a different convo but I think he did. Im not peticular on that point though. Now about the slushies, something he started and became his trade mark, after being hit by one and realized how much it hurt both physically and emotionally, he stopped. He apologized to Rachel and brought her a slushie. Not to throw at her but to drink. Also, he's gone out of his way to defend the Glee kids. He lead the charge against Jesse when he had his entire team throw eggs at Rachel. It was his idea to flatten the tires, stupid but his heart was finally in the right place. He defended Kurt and not out of obligation because he was his step brother but because he saw scared he was. He stood up to the team that he used to lead and told them to stop. He befriend Artie, even though it was for comunity service, he was attemtping to do the right thing. He went back to his old ways with Satanna and Brittany around but he later apologized. Considering his rather altered personality against the bullying he used to perpectuate, it's a pretty minor relaspe. He was also the only one to defend Rachel when everyone else told her that she wasn't liked. He's not even in love with her so that wasn't a motive for him. Also about Rachel, he was very sweet to her when she was playing on the football team, knowing that she was overwhelmed. He also sang with her, not expecting anything in return. Unlike the last time he did a duet. Puck went from the worst bully in school into the guy trying to convince the football team to give Glee a chance.

Now I'm going to address Slut Puck. His way with females made me cringe. He knocked up Quinn then insulted her and then cheated on her. All while behind his best friend's back. He only dated Rachel because of some Jewish wet dream. He only dated Mercedes beccause everyone liked her and he was in the dumps both literally and metiphorically. BUT, but he owned up to having a baby and come on, who wasn't thinking that Finn was an idoit for beleiving Quinn? He was with Quinn when she had Beth and he wanted to raise her, but left the choice to Quinn. He gave her money when she needed it, although it was stolen but willing admitted that was a dumb move on his part. He also didn't out Quinn to Finn even though any other guy would have. I mean come on! She was acting all loving to him when Finn wasn't around while meanwhile lying to her boyfriend. That's enough to piss anyone off!!! Also, Puck apologized to Finn and owned up to his mistakes. He refused to do the same thing to Finn again with Rachel and pulled away mid make-out which is hard for anybody never mind a teenage boy.  In contrast Finn is going after another buddy's girlfriend just after being all high and mighty with Rachel for doing the exact same thing, except like Puck, she owned up. Finn has not. Will not, he doesn't even see himself as wrong. Now Puck has cut Satanna lose and is looking to form an actual relationship with a girl that doesn't buy into the "bad boy" crap. He's really terrible at being a romantic but is looking to be better. All his old tricks aren't working and he's relazing that he wasn't as hard core as he thought he was.

 

If you consider the changes Puck has gone thorugh as well as his current actions towards the people around him, you might be able to see why I've decided to start thinking of him as honest. He's a good guy at heart and I think he's a lot more talented then Finn. Finn is slipping as the hero. His pep talk to Rachel about being a star was condesending and was basically something he did to ease himself of the guilt he felt for going after Quinn. Not once did he stand up for her when anyone was around. Quinn and Finn deserve each other in my opinion. I used to like them both but in reality they're fame seeking bullies. Puck has become one of my favourite male leads, it surprises me because I used to hate him. Now, I'm kind of cheering on Puckleberry...Wow, never thought I'd say that.

 

Anyone else out there seeing what I am? Or is Puck to you the same jerk he always was? Comments? Thoughts?

Does anyone not like Sam?

I don`t like Sam. At all. He`s not very smart, deffinatly full of himself, and is determind to be cool just for that sake of being cool. He`s only with Quinn because she`s the head cheerleader. After all Quinn went through during her pregnancy I wanted to see her with someone that wasn`t worried about being popular all the time. Because that was a serious problem with Puck.
