    Well, MarkofT and I will be the only ones still watching... I liked it. I liked the fast pace, I liked how they sort of wove the songs into the story :), and I liked seeing Kurt and Rachel in NYC. I won't argue with some stuff: the Puck appearance was lame, and once I finally understood the lyrics to '3', I was creeped out by dread boy singing it! I really liked the last song and how it applied to many members of the cast.

    As weird as they make her dance teacher, she was correct about Rachel: she sucked during that special routine, compared to the others. They were sexy, she was trying to portray it. And she snapped after about 10 seconds of criticism. I think the teacher sees a lot of her younger self in Rachel, and wants to help her succeed. That's a different side of Rachel we haven't seen (little fish in a big pond, as opposed to big fish in little pond in Lima), and I like the story line.

    Ditto, Jeff. Even at it's worst, at least this show has entertaining music to listen to/watch.

    yup. It's not high brow TV most of the time, but it's usually fun.

    I'm still in, though this ep was nothing special.

    I really think that Rachel should be spun off into her own show. The show is too disjointed as it is with just the McKinley stuff.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they do retool the show as (e.g.) "NYADA" next season. They may be waiting on how well this year's school musical episodes do, both in terms of ratings and iTunes downloads:
    This year, "Gleece" is the word; they're doing Grease

    I still enjoy the show also.

    There's something different about Marley, she's attractive but perhaps not in your typical TV star sort of way, she reminds me of an every day girl. At times she looks much older and other times much younger.

    The actress is apparently old enough to have had an extended topless scene in season one of Homeland. :)

    A quick Google confirms. She was the one auditioning in E2 for the harem or whatever it was.

    Wow.

    Guess America really is dumbed down if THIS was too many story lines.

    All of three?

    Main story...Brit

    Second story....Rachel

    Third story....little Puck

    Yeah. Way too many.

    Too many? No. Disjointed? Yes.

    Reading comprehension is your friend. :)

    Sorry that you need every story to play off all the others. Life must be tough.

    Whatevs dude. It's okay to think that a show as disjointed in tone/plot/characterization as Glee is already is made worse by using a completely new, different, and separate location with characters not included in other aspects of the show - even if the new location is probably better than the rest of the show.

    It's also okay to disagree with people without feeling the need to insult them. Most of us learned that in kindergarten. Maybe you need a refresher course?

    you listen to the songs ? :confused: i cant stand singing shows but the plotline of this show interests me plus when brit isnt in her silly cheer outfit she actually looks normal.

    becky is also fantastic comic relief and ms pillsbury's OCD is also good when they bring it in.

    i was also disappointed that this year they kept rachael and ditched quinn..she would have made the show better.

    any show about brit is a good show though
