Yes, that sounds closer to the truth.

Re: Glee - Season Four

I like NuQuinn, and I can't stand lead Grease guy. Really, him? Him and Chord Overstreet both need to go. Tough dude and generic pretty girl are both okay so far. I like the Unique storyline and I want to see more of Rachael, Kurt and Blaine. Finn is pretty blah but he's better than a highly inappropriate teacher so that storyline is pretty good. I like the backpacking bit.

Re: Glee - Season Four

My balls don't lust after or respect any of the new boys and girls.

Do they have a new casting service/agent since season one?

Re: Glee - Season Four

Sue stormed out of Figgins' office, grabbed a kid's glasses off his face and threw them, and him, around, pushed other students including pushing one off the stairs, etc etc.

This issue bothers me...there would have to be some kids who don't like Sue and would file charges for assault and battery. And then sue. No pun intended. But she's allowed to physically assault students? Her verbal assaults are bad enough. And nuQuinn? I thought most schools now have some kind of no-bullying policy. I notice that, unlike Quinn and her Brittney/Santana entourage, nuQuinn is by herself.

Re: Glee - Season Four

With shows like this i've long stopped putting reality demands on them or else i'd be only counting the mistakes and don't have time to actually enjoy the episode.

Glee, much like most other shows, bend and break reality to suit their needs.. in this case to get some comedy moments out of a scene. Glee is about teenager drama and music.. that's it.

Best not to think too hard about it.

Re: Glee - Season Four

That's what I was thinking. Which is a big change from Irish-boy. And while "Unique" did not win the competition, s/he won the war and is part of the cast.

Is that it? I've never watched that but I guess it would explain it.

While Blake proved himself to be a well rounder performer, I thought he was a safe choice. I was pulling for Alyin.

Re: Glee - Season Four

That was the most fun I've had watching Glee in a long long time. That felt like Season 1 glee, even going back to the red shirts and jeans for the "Don't Stop Believin'" days. Yeah it was a little nerdy, but in the end it really worked for me, especially getting to know the new characters and the sensitivity with Ryders storyline. I'm not sure if this is Glee turning the corner, but the last time I had this kind of reaction was Season 1 and this one felt like an episode that would have worked really well in Glee's hayday. Looking forward to next week and of course it wouldn't be Glee without "Gangam Style".

Re: Glee - Season Four

I'm sick of Sue, she's mad at Finn for calling her daughter a retard when she says the cruelest things all the time. She's worried because Wade was attacked in the hallway but in the same episode she stormed out of Figgins' office attacking several students.

Get rid of McKinley and new Directions, make the show about Kurt and Rachel in New York, move Santana there and keep Finn, Blaine and Brittany as recurring characters, everyone else needs to go.

Re: Glee - Season Four

Guess the discussion for Glee is dying huh?

I knew I was going to like this episode as soon as Quinn AND Santana appeared

I liked the mentor concept, and I found it amusing how nuQuinn was so obsessed with Quinn. 'WWQFD?' lol. It disappointed me a bit that Quinn had a go at Jake without actually trying to hear his side of the story. I also liked the little discussion she and Santana had.

This was an episode where liked the meat of the episode rather than the songs. The Warblers still don't do much for me, all of their songs are beginning to sound the same. The party song didn't do much for me either.

I also liked Brody calling out Rachel's behaviour.

I like what they're doing with Marley. Rachel always seemed to thrive on the pressure of being the star but Marley is having a hard time handling it. I'm glad the 'new Rachel' isn't a carbon copy. The ending wasn't a surprise but I'm glad they're dealing with it now rather than dragging it out. I hope it doesn't cost them Sectionals!

Re: Glee - Season Four

I'm watching "Thanksgiving" now and two thoughts struck me: First, you're right, the mentor thing was great. I've been annoyed at how they were using the original cast members. It seemed they didn't want to overuse them, so they opted for under-using them. They steal the show every time they appear. They worked really well in this episode, adding to the plot and not stealing the spotlight. I loved how Santana caught onto "Pretty Little Liar" right away.

Kurt and Rachel are really dragging the show down. I'm not a Sara Jessica Parker fan and her part didn't help. I've never really formed an opinion on Kate Hudson, though I do have to say, Cassandra July is the best part about the Kurt/Rachel storyline. As for them, they either get them a spin-off (so I can ignore it! ) or dump them.

Re: Glee - Season Four

^Agree totally. I'm so tired of Rachel's miss priss she's too good for visiting Lima act. Kurt would likely have to face Finn if he'd gone home for Thanksgiving, but both could have avoided the McKinley crew if they'd wanted while still being in Lima. Their friends would have liked to have seen them, and the reunion felt incomplete. This should have been the episode they return from New York, not the 'Glease' episode. Drop the New York storyline or give it it's own series...I hear there's room in the schedule where Mob Doctor used to be.

Also...wasn't Rachel the one that was 'traumatized' by being pelted by eggs in season one because they were baby birds and now she's willing to...massage...a turkey? Doesn't line up with her previous ultra-vegan attitude.

I'm so tired of the New York storyline...or tired of Lea Michele, I don't know, but between the stupid "Kiki" party thing and Gangnam style I'm not really happy with either aspect of the show. Maybe I'm finally 'out-growing' it, or it's just gotten that bad.
