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 really loved "Pure Imagination," but Kurt crying at the end was just so over the top and ruined it a little bit.
you can be a queen bitch without being a cartoon figure, which Sue has become lately....plus- the club has to compete at Nationals, so Sue's thwarting would all be for not anyway- why not just give it an explanation..... No Blaine, sort of bored.
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- they bombarded us with Darren, we got used to him (some even only watch for him...), then they make you go cold turkey....I'd want my boyfriend to help me plan a funeral (OK- not an ideal event, but help with anything I'm planning)...they need to have Blaine at McKinley- one, he's a better performer than all the other guys and two, he's an enormous cash cow for the show in general
this entire season has felt like it was all Kurt, all the time... it would have been nice to have him not at the center of everything for once, but I know I'm asking for too much since he's pretty much an author surrogate at this point.
yeah... I'm just not a Blaine fan in general. he's perfect and flawless and everyone loves him and he's just a really goddamned boring character.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?
I'm not a big Blaine fan, either- but a huge Darren Criss fan.
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.
unofficial official mini meet Friday- Saturday April 11-12, 2014
There are no words. Just the sound of jacking off.
the only parts of the show I watch are the ones with Kurt and Blaine- the rest is mind numbingly bad....the only scene I remember forwarding through on Kurt was his Sunset Blvd number- after a minute, the cringing started.....well- OK, if Chord takes his shirt off, I'll watch that,too- after doing it weekly at the start, he hasn't taken it off in a while- since the family is broke, he could work as a go go boy in a gay club and make a fortune....and don't scream at me- 'HE'S UNDER AGE'....since when has a high school student on TV had trouble getting into a bar???????
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.
I REALLY didn't like that Mr. Schue sang a Matthew Morrison song....lol. It was like Bizarro World where both Mr. Schue and Matthew Morrison both exist.
also I just didn't like the episode...but I did really like Quinn's new haircut=)
Blaine seems to have gotten swishier by the episode......him and Kurt together just looks odder and odder every scene- and Kurt's 'I love you' seemed a little forced- hopefully trouble next year
I have loved this show from day one and still do, but I was very disappointed with the season finale. So anticlimatic.
Man you guys are hard to please!
I thought the scene between Blaine and Kurt was LOVELY. I've replayed that scene about 20 times since it aired. Its especially satisfying if you've been following Kurt's storyline since season one. He wasn't reserved. He was taken aback because he never thought he'd hear those words from anyone.
It's very true to the experience of gay teenagers who -- before they have their first requited love -- often feel as if everyone else gets someone to love except them. For Kurt, realizing that he not only found someone to love (and in his best friend too!) but that person also loved him back and said it first? That was a beautiful moment, and I love the casual way Blaine said it. As if it were a statement of fact, and not a plea for a reciprocation (though it was reciprocated anyway). It was obviously from the heart since he said it in response to Kurt's good attitude about losing the competition.
I love this couple so much.
I love Darren, I love Chris...I just don't care for 'Klaine'.....probably the worst couple on the show.
The Blaine-Kurt (I refuse to do portmanteaus of names anymore) relationship still seems forced. I like both actors but the chemistry just isn't there. If you are gonna tell someone you love them for the first time, hold their hand, give them a hug or a peak on the cheek at least. I'm getting sick of all the break-ups and make-ups. Add some real drama and twists (like the ideas I mentioned above) to keep people excited.
The episode was okay but compared to the first season finale, this one is bad.
The break up/make ups is kind of high school- so that fits.....
I found the finale a bit of a let-down, but over all it's still a great series.
I haven't cared much for the original songs - I like it better when they pick ones out that suit the plotlines and put their spin on them - they people that have done some of the arrangements are really outstanding and do good work. That said, I'll add my "me too" to the chorus of those who have loved this series from day one, but feel the finale for this season was a bit of a let down. I have faith in the writers though - I'm sure the situation at Nationals had to be a setup for something next season. I'll miss it till it starts again!
