    I really loved the music in this episode! And wow - Kate Hudson can dance!

    I liked Marley a lot, but I'm not sure about the new Puck. I also loved Rachel and Kurt at the end.

    So glad Glee is back!

    Is the "new Q" gonna be a main character? Will she cross over to the Glee club?

    I like lunch lady's daughter. Is that Marley? I didn't peg Puck's brother until the end when he told Will "I'm not my brother". That is when I figured it out.

    Glad Kurt won't be hanging out in high school. I too thought it was lame he was hanging out there so much.

    I hope Rachel learns to dance better. Nice she did well for Whoopi's class. Harsh that she kicked one girl completely out of school over just a few bars.


    LOLed when Britney asked of Unique "Did you cut your hair, Mercedes?"

    I thought Kate Hudson's vocals were good, but not her dancing. If she were actually a really good dancer she'd have been front and center. Instead she was in the crowd and her feet were rarely shown.

    I saw that Mark Salling is still in the opening credits. I take it he'll be back? What about Santana? (I assume we've seen the last of Finn.)

    I was disappointed. I expect this will be the last season of Glee.

    I thought that for someone who is supposed to be a dance instructor, and for a character which boasts that she "can dance circles around all of you," I thought she, frankly, danced lousily. I don't believe her as a professional dancer.

    In the head-to-head between Marley and Rachel, I actually preferred Marley's performance hands down. I thought Marley's voice had a richness to it that Rachel's didn't.

    I did not care for "Unique" last season, and I'm not thrilled to see him back.

    xyz: you might want to spoiler tag that. Some people believe casting news for future episodes are just as much of a spoiler as a plot spoiler.

    I thought this was an excellent direction for GLEE to take instead of the endless kids trapped in high school for 8 seasons trying to win nationals.

    In fact - after the initial hit of GLEE I think it totally lost it's way and I feel like this was the best episode in ages.

    The new characters are great - the old characters coming and going is great and I loved UNIQUE last season so so happy to see him as a member of the actual Glee club.

    Now if they would just get rid of the dredd boy who won the reality show.

    You know "Unique" is from the same show, and what you see on Glee is not really a character, that's him.

    I found him annoying on TGP and I find him annoying on the show.

    Yes I did know that but I didn't watch the glee project, so you might know much more personal annoying background stuff. I think of the 3 - dredd boy and irish kid he's the best - the other 2 are god awful if you ask me :)

    They're going to have way too many characters on this show. I think it would have been better to have a spin off show rather than trying to have two shows in one.

    I think that not spinning off Rachael and Kurt in to their own show is a big mistake. I would have been happier if they let the seniors graduate and continue with a mix of a new and old members of Glee club.

    Out of all the people that supposedly signed up, they only added two members? Wasn't the Glee Club supposed to inclusive? And, if they truly are actually looking for talent this year, why is Sugar still in the club.

    I do like Marley. I am glad the "new Rachael" is not just like the old Rachael. But did we really need a pre-Glee Club Quinn?

    Are all the graduates still in the credits? Let the past go! Make them "Special Guest Stars" when they appear.

    I think the going back and forth is going to distroy the show. Either give them their own show or let them go. Shows in the past like MASH has proved that a central person can leave and a new one take their place and the show goes on being just as good.

    I dunno how a spinoff would work. A separate, new show with Rachel and Kurt probably wouldn't do well. And Glee without either wouldn't do well either.

    I too suspect this is the end of the road for the series. The show isn't M*A*S*H But it it had it's moments. Hopefully, there will be a few more before it's wrapped.

    Marleys voice was that of an American Idol runner up. A teen pop star Disney voice. Rich? It was shallow. Tina sings rings around her.

    Rachel is already a Broadway star in real life whose voice is so full of gusto an feeling.

    I think you need a new sound system.

    And so it starts. Predictions of ends of shows next lead to TiVo community group think that the show is done and does not match its beginnings.

    How about sitting back and watching rather than trying to produce, write and direct the show from an Internet forum. If it is good, it is good. If it is not, it is not. Rather than prejudge. The mind always looks for things that match its prejudgment.

    Sometimes this place annoys the crap out of me. Too bad it is still one of the best places to talk about shows.

    For what it's worth, I have always felt that this show won't be a long-running success. Even in season two I kinda felt that it'd go four seasons and that'd be it.

    it started before I posted. I was just agreeing with it.


    We always talk about the demise of shows. Just read threads about new shows starting this season. People will talk about pulling the plug after one episode. Or less.

    I have this episode recorded and have not watched it yet.

    The move to Thursdays opposite both Person of Interest and Parks and Rec may have made Glee the show that does not make the cut this season. It does not help that I was not thrilled with last season at all. I thought it was average at best.
