The Gay Guide to Glee: Final Episode Reviewed

"A treacly, cloying, mawkish, and irrelevant tribute to a character we don’t know, by a character we’ve come to despise, in the service of…seemingly nothing but creating an imploding Kingdome full of squeaky Styrofoam peanuts to fill the swirling vacuum of the Tuesday before the finale. As a full-fledged freak with an irrepressible spirit, I loved this show’s cynicism when it was about the indefatigable ways in which high school (as a stand-in for the world) attempts to crush your irrepressible freak spirit. But this kind of cynical dowsing—find the tear ducts; drill; bathe in the resultant outpouring—is simply lazy."

I'm thinking Brett Berk is hoping for better next episode, huh?

(The Final Episode thing was a joke)

Michael you've stunned the Gleeks here into a stoney stupor. I'm through with Glee; as far as I'm concerned Mad Men cannot return fast enough.

Ok. Here's my take (thanks for asking). The shitty writing had painted Jane Lynch into a terrible corner. She was psycho, and unappealling, and so not Kaiser Sose. So they had to do something dramatic to ratchet her back to where she was in Season 1 -- tough, nasty, heartless, but not exactly Ahab. Totally crapfest manipulative, but then again, I still cry when animals are hurt on television. Plus, any days featuring solos from someone other than Lea gives me a happy. Writing is abysmal on that show -- it's really only saved by the acting/singing talent.
My guilty pleasure? "so you think you can dance." BTW, HORRID day at work today and more tomorrow. But even that paled in comparison to the pain incurred at the National French Contest medal giveaway. Mon Dieu. (UN)Fortunately runsfasterdeeper won first place in her level and 3rd place nationally so we got to wait to the end for her moment. In the meantime, I blackberrying like crazy to defend myself from a claim that I failed to adequately hedge an answer I gave to a casual question via my phone yesterday, my day off, to make clear that it might not be true for the unique and insane and uncommunicated circumstances in which th question was raised. Nice. I hate my job. That is all.

I loved Season 1 - haven't watched anything since; waiting for the DVD of Season 2.

That said it seems that the whole thing is painted into a corner since The thing cannot last more than 4 years and without adding new kids each year (do they?) it devolves into a Simpson-wannabe where everyone always stays the same. Which, by the way not that it needs mentioning, works better in a cartoon.

Which is also why Miz Palin's "writing" doesn't work either. She is a cartoon pretending to be a person pretending to be a cartoon.

And, for what it's worth, Newt IS a big douchebag.

If it's any consolation, Maria - my good friend and supervisor at work resigned two days after my mother died and her interim replacement is a 30-something fucked up micro-managing idiot with a doctorate who insists on being called "Doctor" and I often daydream of ways to poison him and would love nothing better than to accidentally run over him with my car.

Nancy, you and Mr. Bright have much in common.

My co-worker/associate pastor is getting married tomorrow so I get to run logistics all day at work/attend a wedding?

Hey, that's the sun out there!

also, sometimes it's hard being a rabid zionist.

it's easy to be a lapsed Catholic, though. Especially on Sundays!
