    I still missed them. There has been no mention of Brittany so far this season. It's like she just disappeared. :( Quinn of course was written off, but too bad Diana Agron could not have returned in someway as Q for this.

    Unlike Heather Morris, Dianna Agron was most likely purposely excluded from the episode. I don't think she is very well liked by Ryan Murphy and some of the cast members.

    Wow - I've seen sad television and movies before, but nothing like what Glee did. I was crying pretty consistently throughout the episodes. I lost a close friend unexpectedly last year, so I think it hit a little too close to home for me (so much so that I'm not sure who my tears were more about: Corey/Finn's death or my friend's).

    Great acting (if you can call it acting in this case, based on what Ryan Murphy said about the episode) all around.

    Finally they show that Sue does have a heart. I hope she tones it down from now on.

    There has been zero character development with her. Every time she shows she has a heart, it's all washed away an episode or two later. I wouldn't count on it happening this time either.

    This. They've gone through multiple cycles where she's actually a very nice character, such as the last time she was principal, or even during first season when she went back on her agreement with Figgins to have the glee club disbanded if they didn't win. Each time, she goes back to the same nasty character she was before. It's seriously bordering on bipolar.

    I've mentioned it before, I think Murphy really isn't that creative, each character fills a slot in his crafted world and if one no longer fills that gap, they are replaced or "returned to form".

    He NEEDS Sue to be a source of conflict, without it he flounders.

    It'll be interesting to see how he fills the "everyman" slot Finn held.

    Last week's show (The End of Twerk) was really good. It reminded me of what I used to love about GLEE.

    And Unique's song truly got to me.

    I thought the twerking thing was stupid, mainly because it's ridiculous how much attention the Miley Cirus thing got, but I really enjoyed Marley's performance. It was very pop, but emotional too.

    THEY BETTER NOT SCREW UP THE BJ episode!!

    :eek: Wha--?!

    I haven't been watching. Are they showing a BJ episode for sweeps? And how do they screw up a BJ? Even a mediocre one is still a good one.

    :D

    Have only watched the first 2 eps of the year so far.. (Hmm, I may have to re-check #2.. I have it listed as watched, but I don't remember watching it). Have been watching other stuff, plus #3 will just be sad (despite me thinking he did himself in).

    With the exception of the Cory Monteith tribute, this show has become soulless.

    I stopped watching Glee a while ago, while still occasionally listening to the music from the show. I dropped in to watch the Monteith/Finn tribute, and thought "This is really good. Why did I stop watching?"

    Then I watched the next episode and remembered. It was unwatchable, IMO. Soulless is probably just one of many applicable criticisms of the show.

    I was so hoping that the tribute episode would be a watershed episode that would allow the show to re-dedicate itself to what made it great once, but that did not happen at all. Except for a throw-away line or two, watching the next episode was almost like the tribute episode never happened.

    I agree, mostly. I think that it still feels like the people in NY are real...but the McKinley folks feel like robots. Poorly-dressed, poorly-coiffed robots.

    Has anybody else but me been watching Dancing with the Stars this season?

    Amber Riley has been tearing up the joint, and if there's any justice, she'll end up as the champ.

    So if the online voting is still open, vote for Amber!

    Amber hurt her knee, so Derek Hough choreographed around it this week to give her a better chance to heal (the other dance this week was the Viennese Waltz). Here's their jazz:

    Thanks. I hadn't watched this week's episode yet, so knowing who goes home will make it nice and anti-climactic.

    The "fall season finale" will be "a Christmas episode that they made for last season but Fox would not air it":
    I realize it says "Christmas Special", but the description makes it sound like just another episode that happens to take place around Christmas.

    I see two problems with this.

    First, they did a Christmas episode last season - "Glee, Actually." Of course, they could always say that they made that episode after Fox rejected the earlier one, but then you have to worry about deciding which one is "canon" and then not referencing the other episode in future episodes. (Oh, wait, never mind, I forgot -this is Glee we're talking about - what continuity?)

    Second, how do you handle the absence of Finn - and, for that matter, Brittany, who was still attending McKinley at the time the episode is supposed to take place?

    they didn't even handle the absence of Brittany this year/season. Does she appear in this year old episode? That would be weird.
