The show has never been about subtlety or realistic character motivation and they often throw characters in or out of the spotlight based on need for that given week's episode so really your cons for the episode should be why you dislike the show on a weekly basis not just this episode. You propably put up with those things more in other episodes becuase you like the humor more and the poppy songs they sing which weren't as prevalent in this week's episode.

I, too, was puzzled by the opinions of some who claimed that the show was much better before its hiatus than it has been since. I think it's been very consistent throughout the season and that the last two episodes were the best of the season. I understand, though, that without differences of opinion we wouldn't have sports betting.
There aren't enough
in the world to satisfactorily express my thoughts here. Who are you 2 to imply that either someone doesn't "get" the show or should consider finding something else? Have you both been named as the arbiters of what is and is not quality TV? Or are you so sensitive to criticism of the show that you need to belittle those opinions who disagree with yours? I'm as a big a fan as you will find of the show Chuck, but that doesn't mean I discount or judge those who have found fault in how this season has gone in that show's thread. The same courtesy should be applied in this (and all) threads as long as the points being made are well thought and reasoned.
To your point Savage, yes, the show has always had shoddy characterization and has never been subtle. But the actors involved are usually enough to save it or indeed, the humor has helped gloss over other shortcomings. But the shoehorned April plot was a new angle (and indicative of the show's rising popularity) and the Mercedes plot was just overwrought and melodramatic. The problem with the Kurt plot was that we'd already been down that road before, we KNOW he loves Finn and has done silly things to get his attention before. We also know that Finn has shown no inclination that he is interested in Kurt so to go back to that well AGAIN just served to undermine Kurt's character further and make him seem like a desperate, selfish creep (not the actor's fault, Chris Colfer did well with what he was given).
gwsat, it's not your place to tell people if they didn't like something to take a hike. I am far from alone in finding the episodes after the hiatus to be lacking so again, who are you to be the ultimate judge and jury?
As for what Glee is all about. Early in the season it was about a funny show with terrific musical numbers and some dramatic elements. Since then the show has trashed it's own characters and started to take itself much more seriously. To its own detriment in my opinion.
