I had low expectations going in and was shocked to find it was really, really good. I am by far no fan of Wade/Unique. I feel like either Harmony or Sebastian from last season would have been a much better addition to the Glee club if they wanted to bring in someone from a rival club. And Harmony truly would have been a "new Rachel".
But I enjoyed all of the songs, the new characters have good voices and are likable enough, and I loved the New York aspect of it. The show feels revitalized. I only really missed Santana and I know she will be back in a couple episodes (at least to visit) so I'm okay with that.
I'm mostly excited for next week.
