'Glee' on FOX HD - Page 70

post #2071 of 2116
Wow this season is awful. It's just painful to watch anymore. The characters are completely uninspired and just annoying. They really should have sent the show off on a high note at the end of season 3. Finn leading the Glee club I guess would be the shark for the show.

No idea why I am still watching this....BUT

The Sue Sylvester/Nikki Minaj song was the most cringeworthy, hilarious 3 minutes I have ever seen on TV.

Occasionally, they still do something amazing. The musical dream Shu had with he and Emma the week before singing & dancing in a rotating room was phenomenal (and expensive!). I don't know what old musical inspired it, but it was wonderful.

It's a very famous Fred Astaire creation from Royal Wedding (1951). They even used the same song.
It's more difficult to do with two people in the room, and they pulled it off.

Since AI went long last week, my DVR cut off during the "Footloose" song/dance.....did I miss anything of importance after that?

++! Jane Lynch was screamingly funny and her send up of Nikki Minaj was dead on. I actually thought that last night's show was one of the best of this very uneven season. It had a lot of throwback to the first two seasons in the terms of the story lines and the musical performances. When her stint on Glee ends, I can't wait to see where Naya Rivera's career goes. The girl is smokin hot, can sing and moves pretty well.

BTW, did anyone notice that Heather Morris was nowhere to be seen last night. I can't recall that ever happening before.

That's the spirit! ... Now we're back to the Glee thread of old.

I rewatched the "How to be a Heartbreaker" number with Brody and the other "escorts " with the Cougars. It is very impressively staged and shot. Glee can still hit one out if the park on occasion.

I've stuck with Glee, even as it got more erratic over the past two seasons but last night's episode left a very bad taste. It was like a Law and Order "ripped from the headlines" stunt to me. Gunshots at the school, terrified kids, confessions on video tape and to top it off, the glee club members doing everything that you shouldn't do in this situation? Feh! On top of that, being broadcast during a week of very high and intense emotions surrounding this issue in the real world was a triumph of poor timing. And then, at least IMHO, doing a terrible disservice to kids with Down's Syndrome by preying on Becky's justified insecurities and having her bring a gun to school? Has anyone ever heard of one instance of a Down's student bringing a firearm to school? I doubt it. There are times when Ryan Murphy gets too clever for his own good and last night's show was an example.

Has anyone ever heard of a show that did a "school shooting" episode that actually turned into a "accidental firing of a gun" episode (but still playing it like a serious school shooting episode)? That's beyond ridiculous, even for Glee.

Not to mention they don't give you the payoff on the catfish storyline.

IMHO, this is an episode where even the most ardent Glee fans (if they exist and are over the age of 17) can't argue when you say it is beyond terrible.

Nor did they shift back to the New York part of the show and Rachel prepping for her Funny Girl audition which they've been teasing for weeks. At this point the NYC scenes are more interesting than the ones in Lima. The whole "trials and tribulations" prior to Regionals gets old. I noticed that Sam Larson wasn't in the show this week and Vanessa Lengies (Sugar Motta) who is painfully underutilized anyway, was once more nowhere to be seen. One of the problems with the show now is that Lea, Amber, Diana, Naya and even Corey were so dominant, playing finely etched characters, that the show's current Lima cast, while very talented, just can't measure up to the originals. Maybe that's why we get outlandish stunts like this week's episode as the show runners try to hold everyone's attention.

Wife and I took forever to finish watching this season but I doubt I'll be returning. It was a struggle just to get through the last few. The finale was a joke and left nothing for me to really want to come back to. Tired of seeing the graduates fly back on a whim each week for no payoff. I'll just pretend the show ended with season 3 which was a perfect show ending.

I'm probably out too. The missus & I have the last 3 or 4 on the DVR and just haven't been able to summon the will to watch them. Ironically, when they renewed the show for not one but two more years, that probably cut my cord right there. Not exactly what FOX was hoping, I'm guessing. It was a cute, fun show once but it's really run its course. I just don't think I can make it through another two years.

The actress who plays Quinn has a new movie coming out this year with Robert De Niro about a mob family. She plays one mean mother in the movie.

Then it shouldn't really be a stretch for her. wink.gif

At least in Glee she didn't beat guys down, physically. smile.gif In the movie, different story. Pretty good trailer for it too.

Cory Monteith Dead

'Glee' Star Found In Vancouver Hotel Room

No cause of death yet.

I feel very very sad for Lea.

I thought this young man had a very bright future ahead of him. Tragic.

Probably being 31 years old and trying to convincingly play a recent high school graduate drove him over the edge.......(too soon?)

Way too early and always in bad taste.
post #2096 of 2116
Did they ever say what happened to him? It is always sad when the unthinkable happens. It always seems to put things into perspective. I recently lost my step brother expectantly, so I can imagine the family is tossing and turning at night trying to piece together what happened.

So I guess I'm not the only one that decided to bail on the show? I was all set not to watch until I heard they were doing a tribute episode. So I've watched the first two leading up to the tribute this week. Wow, you all aren't missing much. I'm not sure why they decided to break up this group's senior year over two seasons, although they're already at prom time so perhaps by the winter break it'll be graduation. Sue is now principal and once I saw that I knew I made the right decision. They really should have just made a new show about the NYC group, and that would have held my interest. That's the only part that is even remotely interesting about this show anymore. Such a shame...

Santana's commercial was hilarious though. If you haven't seen it.


Promo for the Finn tribute episode:

I'll watch Glee to the awful end. I can't muster the energy to go back and find my posts which forgave the show's producers for their drunken driving, but I can't help feeling guilty that I excused them so frequently for it. Now I feel morbidly compelled to rubberneck the accident scene as everyone tries to deal with the mess.

On a somber note, I found myself thinking about Cory Monteith's death over and over this summer. I can't ever remember being so shocked and saddened by something like that. I didn't know this young man, but somehow his passing felt so personal.
