Between this season and last, Glee lost some thirty percent of its viewing audience. That’s quite a chunk of people abandoning ship. Right now I am part of the seventy percent that stayed. But I can honestly say I am eyeing the greener pastures of Glee-free living more and more with every episode. This week’s snooze fest just about clinched it for me. Things will have to get better or I will be removing this once snarkly brilliant show from my DVR list. What has gone wrong:
- Sue: Her and Shue are an old joke already. Find something new for her character and move on.
- The Music: Nothing really great this year. You know you’re in trouble when you are excited about the 40s music sung by the new all-girl glee club.
- The Conflicts: I was actually excited about Rachel and Kurt being friends but now they are back in familiar territory, fighting over the same old stuff. Ditto with Rachel and Mercedes. And endlessly evil Quinn is sooo last two seasons. When is she ever going to grow up already?
- The New Kids: Blaine as boyfriend to Kurt? Winner. Blaine as new member of glee club? Not so much. And don’t get me started on Rory. Lovely voice but seriously, does Glee need more guys after our three girl defections?
So are you still watching? Thinking about quitting? Or absolutely loving the new season?
