The Hate Group AFA Continues Attack On Glee
The Hate Group AFA Continues Attack On Glee
I would probobly be feeling a tad more militant if the show weren't so monumentaly shit. All I can really muster is....well, my usual, christians are retarded.
Just goes to show you how loyal the AFA is.
NewsCorp gives them a whole channel (FAUX News) to express their views. But, do they remember that? No!!! You'd think they'd give FOX a pass on Glee.
Guess I'm in the minority - I love the show!
The show makes me smile each week and is certainly not intellectually challenging; but then that's not why I watch. It has had a couple of hard hitting episodes but lately has been a little more far fetched.
If it continued its current track, I probably wouldn't remember to watch...
This night's episode was okay but the voice in the back of my head is telling me to stop watching this horrible show. Even with the spoiler about prom queen/king, the plot is just so fucked up, I swear the writers are just stealing bits of fanfic and coalesced them into a somewhat coherent episode. I'm gay (and 25) and I didn't even know Tribeca was a "gay/lesbian capital" in NYC. Why the fuck would a teen girl in the midwest know that? I know I shouldn't talking about "realism" with this show but the dialogue is stilted to the point where even a conflict is monotone. Winos on the stoop have more emotion than this cast. Don't even get me started about the Quinn-Rachel conflict. Quinn bitch slaps Rachel and she hands Quinn a paper towel to wipe her tears? [Looks at the first line that I wrote] Makes perfect since to Murphy.
How horrible was "Rolling In the Deep"...that was bad...and Jonathan Groff said shit...lol
So i'm surprised the death wasn't teased for next week...TVLine has been saying it happens in the 2nd to last episode...which I believe is the next episode. But Ausiello denied tonight that it was a member of New Directions...which leaves who? Sue, Emma, Ex-Mrs. Schue...are there any other regular females in the cast?
and on another note...I've been rewatching the first season of "Popular" this week...for those that don't know or don't remember, this was Ryan Murphy's first show back in 1999. He's basically just re-hashing storylines from that show for Glee, but he did it SO much better on "Popular"
^ Yeah, what a horrible Mary Sue thing Murphy has going. Blaine just sweeps in like a Golden Age leading man after Karofsky walks off. *yawn* Toss in some drama, make Kurt stand there looking horribly awkward. These little tweaks drive me insane because they leave zero character development and allow the two predominant gay kids to be god-like and untouchable.
It's almost as if he's vicariously reliving high school through this show. It's a tiring charade. Anyone that's taken a writing class knows decent character development is written from flaws - people want to see flawed people.
Does anyone believe that the prom king/queen results would be a surprise to the principal? First of all, wouldn't he be involved in counting the votes? And even if he wasn't, wouldn't whoever did count the votes mention quietly that this prank had occurred, and then throw away the votes for Kurt?
BTW, was the actor who published the spoiler visible in the episode?
Hmmm. I was not crazy about this episode. I thought all of the song choices were bad. And once again, Artie got a solo. He is not a good singer I think. Sounds weird and looks weird singing.
I liked Prom Queen, but again there's a lot of things on the show that are so unreal, almost cartoonish. No school principal would've read out loud the name of a gay guy for prom queen, specially cuz it was such an obvious and cruel joke, if the principal did that they would be participating in the joke and letting students do whatever they want, nor would a principal let both guys have their first dance.
Sue Sylvester keeps gettin more cartoonish as well each time.
But I did like the Friday and Dancing Queen performances. And each time I think more and more that Artie is really cool, just like Britanny and Santana.
I don't remember anything specific about that show but I do remember I liked it a lot.and on another note...I've been rewatching the first season of "Popular" this week...for those that don't know or don't remember, this was Ryan Murphy's first show back in 1999. He's basically just re-hashing storylines from that show for Glee, but he did it SO much better on "Popular"
Oh and do you guys know that the same prom queen storyline happened to Betty's gay nephew in Ugly Betty?
I was spoiled, I don't know how much that made me react or not to the actual scene, I did want to Kurt though.
Say what you want - but the last 15 minutes of that episode had me in tears bigtime - and almost sobbing. There is something about the Kurt/Blaine/Karofsky storyline that just really hits me. Call it a childhood experience, or a parallel to people I've had in my life at that age, but I identify with all those emotions and that made the episode great to me.
We all get varying mileage out of the story arcs - just because we may not identify with some, doesn't mean they aren't doing a good job.
Davelandia I'm totally with you. And for all the inconsistent writing and such, there's something wonderful about having a romantic gay couple on TV in Blaine and Kurt. They're always singing to each other and supporting each other and generally just being sweet and adorable. That for me makes up for all the rest of the bullshit.
Well, that episode sucked complete asshole. I'm not even sure if I can think of an episode that's been that bad.
If they win Nationals I'll stop caring and not bother tuning in next year. I can't imagine this show lasting past a third season.
The bad points? I wanted to kick Jesse in the nuts, repeatedly. Plus Kurt needed to dial back the gayness from 11 to a 7.
I didn't see it all, but what I did see was piss poor.
I really liked this episode. Hell half the thing people complain about weren't in the episode.
The scene where Karofsky apologises to Kurt was very well done.
For all sad words of tongue and pen,
The saddest are these, 'It might have been.'
I am glad Blaine wasn't in this episode. There is just no place in the episode he could be where it would not seemed forced.
Well, the episode had me crying. The tribute, that they did it for Sue despite herself was creative, sensitive and amazing. Sue's one weakness was her sister - and her death was the perfect opportunity to expose an additional dimension to Sue.
I loved that Finn finally grew some balls - when he took charge and told the group they were doing the tribute - the look he shot Jesse was *gold*.
As for Jesse St James, he also has got to go. People say Sue is a cartoon, this guy is Warner Brother's whole damned cast. When he was first introduced it was ok, now he just seems fake, so fake that it pains me to watch any part of the episode where it looks like anyone's taking him seriously or believing anything that falls out of this guy's mouth.
Also Will is an idiot for putting the vest in the throw away box. Last episode he was crying how he doesn't want to lose her, this week he's more than happy to move on. derp?
Watched some in the first season,not so much n the second.....am I on the right track thinking seeing comments here and elsewhere that Glee may already have jumped the shark or is perilously close to doing so...are the creative staff too self-indulgent,out of synch with the fan base or just arrogant incompetents who wanna prove another potentially show can be dumped in the sewer because the characters become caricatures of themselves or the messages are laid too thick and heavy?At first,what a fun new show with lots of great possibilities,now it's one snipe or another how things have gotten so awful.
There are no words. Just the sound of jacking off.
Either way, I am in the same boat, I want to see the other characters, but only Kurt has anything remotely interesting going on, everything else is just so bad, annoying and lacks character or plot development.
Funeral: Great episode.
-It's the first episode in a while with a bit of realism to it.
-Kurt keeps getting the worst songs. If he's so keen about singing female songs (which is already annoying), can he at least sing something that belong to the last 20 years?
-Dianna Agron's acting. I still can't get over that she doesn't even react when things happen, she didn't even react when *SPOILER* Finn broke up with her she only shed like a tear and seemed like they meade her smell onions or something before the scene so she could shed that one tear *END SPOILER*.
-Dianna Agron in general. I mean, I don't even know if Quinn is a bad character or the fact that she can't act has made Quinn a bad character. In any case I can't stand Quinn, from her coldness to her 60s housewife wardrobe, to her idiotic aspirations in life to be a prom queen and marry and have Finn's kids...can she be any more stupid and shallow?
And what makes Kurt morally inept? He doesn't drink, smoke, swear, or fornicate, plus he helps other people (Karofsky, Sue and Trouty Mouth). If you're referring to his atheism, you don't need a 2000 year old book to know right and wrong, mein freund!
When "Born This Way" aired, most of you bitched that Sue wasn't serious enough, then after "Funeral" aired, it was all, "OMG! Sue is too serious!". Make up your fucking minds! Too many of you guys harp about how silly and unreal the show is...THAT'S THE WHOLE FUCKING POINT! It's a show about teens breaking into song at the drop of a hat! Sue remade Physical with Olivia Newton John, for fuck's sake. It's supposed to be ridiculous, you sillyheads!
Kurt is fucked. He's biphobic, insensitive, narcissistic and written as a victim (then cherished by some of the fan base) when he too is often a bully in his own right. Kurt is a Mary Sue because he's an author's character in which Ryan Murphy vicariously lives through; much like Blaine Anderson. He can do no wrong. I've never seen Kurt chastised for any of his actions on this show by any of the other characters.
He's probably my least favourite character on the show.
I hypothesize that Ryan Murphy and Co. sold out to record labels/estates sometime between the first and second seasons and are tossing in inappropriate song choices irrelevant to the plot to generate revenue/budget. A combination with this and Blaine/Kurt's silly power coupling have bogged the show down. The first season was nothing like the second. It's jumped the shark two seasons in.
Well, the writing is just fine for me - this show is the way my life was in high school in so many ways - and the storylines are continually pushing buttons that evoke so many memories. So what if some of them are a little over the top - don't we have plenty of people in our lives that are over the top themselves? I love this show.
"His boyfriend says he was the victim of physical gay bashing and two flat seconds later he spouts an absurd thing saying it's the perfect time to go to prom, without comforting him? And that's okay to you? That's some serious ass-backward logic. Kurt is fucked. He's biphobic, insensitive, narcissistic and written as a victim...Kurt is a Mary Sue...He can do no wrong. I've never seen Kurt chastised for any of his actions on this show by any of the other characters."
When Blaine mentioned his gaybashing to Kurt, he then told Blaine that they didn't have to go to the prom if it made Blaine uncomfortable. However, Blaine wanted to go because he didn't want the bullies to win. Kurt wasn't being "biphobic"...he was just jealous that Blaine might have been attracted to Rachael. Kurt has done bad things, like trying to sabotage Finn's relationship to get his attention (can't remember if he got called out on it).
If you dislike Glee so much, CHANGE THE CHANNEL! Ryan Murphy isn't holding a gun to your head!
I used to love this show. After the finale, my confidence in Glee is really starting to erode. It was one of the worst episodes of the year. A finale should not be described as boring with bland music but that was the case. I found last years finale uplifting and watched it several times. I've already erased this one. And Sam and his new girlfrend....I think that duo is hardly plausible. Then again, latley this show is written with less depth than a comic book.
And what makes Mercedes and Sam's relationship implausible? Because she's black and he's white? Or because she's overweight and he's slim? Big black chicks need love too!
BTW- If you insult comic books again, I WILL BRING IT! 8^)
As for Kurt not being nice? HELLO! The funeral? Donating clothes to Sam's family and raising money to get his guitar out of hock? Helping Karofsky deal with his sexuality?
First you guys complain about Kurt being a Mary Sue, and now you harp about what a heartless bitch he is! Which one is he, guys? Make up your mind! Last time I checked, human beings are sometimes nice, and sometimes they're assholes!
Why are you spending so much time hating on a fictional character? If you're going to hate him, hate him for reasons you didn't pull out of thin air.
I am not crazy about the finale. Past years have been big numbers, and exciting. This finale had a lot of Artie and Britney singing...not good.
And what was the point of having big stars like Cheyenne Jackson, if you aren't going to use them for their musical abilities. I can't believe he didn't sing one song this whole season.
