Glee, new season..spoilers

Ok Watched the 1st new one and was so disappointed. I can't believe what they have turned Sue into. She's not even funny any more. They need every viewer they need and the Tea party bit probably turned some viewers against them. I will still record it like I have done the past two years but will fast forward thru the dialog parts and just watch the singing.

I watched it last night. Compared to the disaster that was last season, this was pleasantly decent.

I do like they are trying to go back to their roots of a high school Glee Club.

Sue is Sue. The writers have no middle ground with her. character. She is either a complete whack job nasty person or she finally sees the error of her ways and is overly nice.

I really enjoyed the production of "Take on me." Nice homage to the original video.

I totally agree with this. I think it's clear that the original glee club members are so much more enjoyable to watch than the subsequent members. I thought Quinn was absolutely gorgeous.

I did enjoy new guy's "Mustang Sally".

First hour was dreadful and I vowed to stick with it because the series is almost over. The second hour (episode) felt a lot more like Glee again. And I mean Glee back in the beginning.

Yeah... Pretty much all the original kids (but no Finn). But are they all gonna "coach" the new team?

It seems Q is back to stay? Not just for one episode? Oh.. and Brittany S. Pierce. Love her.

Liked how Rachel sang "Let it go" when her "Mom" sang the original.

I loved "That's so Rachel" Carrot Top and Ted McGinley? surprised it lasted 1 commercial break.

I think it was Jm J Bullock rather than Ted McGinley but I could be wrong.

Minor Preview Spoiler:
Spoiler:
I saw Q in the background in the previews for next week. Not sure how many episodes she is going to be in, but I have seen Dianna post that she is in a number of episodes this season.

i concur - i thought in the first half of the first hour it needed to be put out of its misery fast - but the second hour was far more old Glee and far more enjoyable.

Are all of the old "new" people gone for good except for Kitty? I know they made mention that Sue made them all transfer. But in Glee nothing seems to last forever....was wondering if anyone heard anything about those actors?

Trouty Mouth is there. Though I guess he isn't really the newest of the new.

If Puck his back, maybe his brother comes back? Would nice to see Mareley back too.

I think he goes by Jim J Bullock now (it was "JM" back in his Too Close for Comfort days), but that was him.

Also, for whatever reason, the opening credits say "fox presents" before showing the "glee" title card. You would think that Fox would want to distance itself from the show's final season...

According to the season 6 Wiki, it looks like, in addition to Kitty, Unique will return as well as Sugar Motta who was not in season 5.

I know they weren't as popular as the originals, but I hope they bring them back. They still need 8 more members, and I don't really want to spend all season meeting new people just before it ends.

Was being the key word there. If they hadn't made the mistake of renewing it for two seasons after season four then they probably wouldn't be airing it. Putting it on Fridays and cutting the number of episodes shows they have no faith in it anymore. Why I don't think they are distancing themselves from it, I don't think they are actually embracing it all that much either.

Shouldn't the Broadway producers be suing Rachel for breech of contract?

That was probably resolved before they did "That's so Rachel".

I'm not sure I see how they're really going to develop the new characters much at all though with a shortened season so I'm not sure I see the point in leaving Jake, Ryder, and Marley.

With the writing staff's case of ADD and the additional plot lines they've laid down for this shortened season, not to mention a farewell to the show, I suspect we'll see minimal development of Dalton Girl, Husky Guy, Ambiguously Gay Football Player, and the Incest Cheerios.

Haven't watched this show in a few years. Turned it on with my kids in the room, hoping to catch some singing.

I had it on for 15 seconds.

IDIOT.
BITCH.
WHORE.

Becky, to Quinn.

I know it says TV-14, but was the show always like that?

I wouldn't judge an hour show by 15 seconds, but it's always been an edgy show. If anything, it lost its edge over time.

I continue to enjoy the new episodes.
Last week's was enjoyable.
I guess it's a case of too late after the fiasco of the last couple of seasons, but in all fairness, who knows what they had planned with the Finn character and how that might have completely thrown them off?
I won't miss it when it is gone, but will continue to watch until then.

They are playing Becky in cartoon mode like they did Sue the first episode. This week Sue was completely different. Seems the writers cant make up their minds about her. The show lost a lot of people by playing up gay characters the first couple of years. This year they are really shoving it in your face. I am not an anti gay person but I think they are over doing it when most of the show revolved around Kurt/Bain, Brittney/Santana, the gay football player and now coach getting a sex change operation. The show has turned into a platform for its creator to use as political statement. Just bring back the singing.

Sure, the sudden death of Cory Monteith was a big problem storywise but, I think that the big mistake was the writers trying to have their cake and eat it too in regards to follow the graduates in New York while trying to introduce and develop the new kids back in Lima.

Trying to stuff all of that into a one hour show was too much for them and as a result, everyone suffered.

If the show has that in it for 15 seconds, I can't watch it with my kids. It doesn't matter what's in the other 41 minutes.

With this particular show, if I can't watch it with my kids, I'm not going to watch it.

I really don't like what they've done with Becky's character. They used to have some interesting things to say about the challenges people with DS face, but they've devolved into "hey, let's make the Down syndrome character shout obscenities! That's funny!" I find it really irritating.
