I watched the first few minutes... fast forwarded about 10 minutes... then again... then again... and finally realized there didn't appear to be anything redeeming in the episode and gave up. The show has completely lost its way. Hard to believe that FOX is likely going to stick with this thing for another season and a half.

So was this episode a truly "lost" episode (i.e. filmed last year and never shown) or was it filmed this year but labeled lost to cover the fact that it does not fit in to this season's time line?

Also, have they ever explained where Sugar and Joe went? As far as I know they should still be part of the Glee club.

The second one.

Jane also mentioned that one of the scenes Fox ordered cut included the explanation as to why Will no longer had his job in Washington. That sounds like something Family Guy would do. ("So, Lois, how did you lose your job with Fox News? - You know what? The episode's just about over; does it really matter?", and "Tell me, Brian, how could you have fathered a boy who's now a teenager if you're only eight years old yourself - Go complain on the Internet"). Also, somebody claims that the names on the stockings that Jane fills with coal are actresses who beat her out for various awards, although the only three people to have beaten her out for Emmys are Betty White, Julie Bowen, and Merritt Wever (which might have been the name on the last stocking).

So should Brittany - in fact, Santana did mention that Brittany was still in Lima, yet she (and Finn (who hadn't died yet), for that matter) did not appear.

IIRC, there was also a bit of discontinuity involving someone's hair length.

Well, I think Sue made some comment about how Glee members randomly disappear in one of the earlier episodes. I guess that was their way of saying "We know this makes no sense, but we don't care enough to explain it."

As I was watching, I had the feeling that it was filmed this year. This show is hard to follow, but I believe Brittany and Finn would have still been around if this was December 2012.

I'm just so disappointed in this show because of the endless talent it hosts. These kids deserve a quality outlet to express their amazing skills

I actually finished the season. What a crappy end. Couldn't the Funny Girl producers sue Rachel into oblivion for breech of contract?

How long is a standard broadway contract for?

Glee - ANyone still watching?

not me.

I enjoyed it for a while, but too much drama and not enough music. I especially hate the 'Sue' character. I loved her on 2 and half men though.

I do still have the Duets episode on my Tivo and listen to the music now and then. Really love the last duet.. one of my favorite songs of all time.

I'm still watching but I heard Fox might be scaling back the final season, can't say I blame them.

I gave up a few seasons ago, but I saw that the ratings for the finale were shockingly bad -- like almost 40% lower than the previous series low. Only a 0.6 in the demo. I don't know how Fox can afford to do a full season next year.

I gave up on this show a long time ago, but I recently went back and watched the pilot. I honestly think it's one of the best pilots for any show ever written. In fact, the entire first season is excellent.

I bailed a while back, came back briefly to see what honestly should have been the series finale (the last one in Ohio) and have zero interest to return now at this point.

As I said, that last one in Ohio should have been the end of the series. It was a perfect ending, with most of the original characters taking their final bows on stage. What they have now is a pale imitation of what the show once had, and I think the ratings reflect that.

Nope...not watching this at all... Loved the first season, and still watched through part of the second season...but haven't had the interest to keep up with it after that...

Is it still any good?

Are the song's worth listening to outside of watching the shows? I used to purchase some of the songs way back then...

Not only watching but actually enjoying it since they left Lima and the awful new kids behind. This New York storyline should have been implemented a long time ago.

It's been great seeing and hearing Amber Riley and Naya Rivera on a regular basis. I also like them working in contemporary recording artists Adam Lambert and Demi Lovato into the show. The high school thing had run it's course, as had Sue Sylvester.

All of that said, I'm sure I'm in the minority. LOL.

Wait, so all the new kids are permanently off the show? The only people that the show focuses on now are the original Glee club kids? All the adults are off the show as well? No more Sue, Will, etc?

I gavce up a couple of season ago when it changed days. The show changed after that first season. The first season the show had it's heart in the right place. You rooted for almost all of the kids. Then as the seasons went on they made the kids far less likable and at times downright mean and nasty.

And the Baby Got Back incident showed that it wasn't just the kids, it was the producers as well.

That was my last episode.

I agree with this. I really enjoyed the show up until they took Coulton's arrangement without any acknowledgement. After that the show just left a bad taste in my mouth and I've given up on it as well.

Yep just the New York kids. Rachel, Kurt, Mercedes, Sam, Blaine, and Artie. Brittany was there for an episode, but I'm not sure if she or Santana will be around next season.

For some sadistic reason I watched until this season end, but I can't take it anymore. I don't know what they plan for next season, but I'm not watching anymore.

From what I have heard...
Spoiler:
For some yet unexplained reason, the show is moving to Los Angeles next season. This would explain the whole business with Rachel and the TV pilot. No idea as to how they're going to explain how she avoids being sued by the Funny Girl producers for breach of contract.

Keep in mind that the "second generation" characters (e.g. Marley, Kitty, Uniq/Unique/however it's spelled) have graduated, so they're available to show up attending, e.g., UCLA.)

Still no word yet on how many episodes they're going to make.

Scary that I know this but, regarding your Spoiler:

Spoiler:
The only characters that graduated this season were the remain 1st Generation Characters (Tina, Blain, Sam). The 2nd Generation are still in school (I think most of them would only even be classified as, at best, Juniors.)

I suspect the only time we will ever see them again is in the finale, if they close at WMHS, like they should.


To answer the original question, I am still watching and probably will to the end. But this show has fallen SOOO far, it is not even funny.
