Glee Review: The Good, a Bad and a Neglected
If we ask me, Glee continues on a upswing this week, with a few occasional missteps, as Puck struggles with a preference to finish high school, Rachel and Kurt finally try-out for NYADA, and Coach Bieste deals with a low issue.
“I Am Not The Boy Next Door”
Roz doesn’t humour fools
“Shake It Out”
Puck gets a storyline
The strain choice for this week was (mostly) a strike with me. Kurt (Chris Colfer) flitting over an overly-elaborate prolongation of “Music of a Night” for his choice from The Boy From Oz was right for a character, story and customarily a bit fun to sing along with while watching. A preference of a New Directions girls singing Florence + a Machine to Coach Bieste (Dot Marie Jones) was honeyed and kind of relocating actually, yet some-more on that storyline later. After flubbing “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” Rachel (Lea Michele) took to low-pitched soliloquy with Kelly Clarkson’s vastly underrated “Cry,” shutting out a partial on kind of a bittersweet yet picturesque note: not everyone’s dreams come true.
Coach Roz (Nene Leakes) was behind this week, rather aligned with Sue (Jane Lynch) after conference some of a joviality girls moment jokes about Coach Bieste’s black eye. Thinking they don’t know a critical inlet of domestic violence, they call a girls on it and yield them with what was indeed a flattering good dull story on a matter.
That brings us to…
The Bad (and a Neglected)
“Cell Block Tango”
Glee’s kind of racist
Too little, too late?
So while Coach Bieste’s storyline was both applicable and good balanced, we haven’t seen her impression for months, and her father Cooter for a few longer than that. So, it’s tough to have a lot of consolation for someone who’s customarily been a cameo many of this season. But, with signs that she’s eventually motionless to give her poorly-named father a second chance, maybe Bieste’s story will still get a possibility to play out.
Roz job Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) “Asian Horror Movie” was one of my favorite moments of a night, and did relate behind to deteriorate one Sue’s immorality ways, yet did they take things a slight bit too far? Maybe they were customarily too severe on that line, with a nonessential “Black Sue” label. Satire is one thing, too most is customarily meant though.
But, props to Roz for job out a joviality girls on their horrible choice of strain in “Cell Block Tango.” Don’t get me wrong, we adore Chicago just as most as you, yet really, that’s not a best stand-alone series to perform, and we get they were creation an erring visualisation call as partial of a storyline, yet it was kind of sincere and unequivocally customarily not crafty enough. The girls rocked it, yet really, I’m ostensible to buy nothing of them satisfied it wasn’t a strain about overcoming a adversity of domestic violence?
Then we have Puck (Mark Salling), a impression that, most like Brittany (Heather Morris), has been reduced to punch line comic relief, customarily Puck’s not mostly that funny. An progressing try to move Puck into a spotlight with guest star Idina Menzel was rather consumed this deteriorate and now, after a lot of neglect, we’re disturbed he competence dump out or, potentially, have to repeat his comparison year. Maybe we customarily consider this approach since we used to work in education, yet I’d have flagged Puck as an at-risk tyro from partial one. Now, again, it’s a small bit late to force some magnetism for him.
A discerning cameo from his father reinforces what we’re ostensible to feel and, while removing high outlines for gripping a story from customarily being all fever and ideal college aspirations, it’s tough to take it seriously. Rachel choking during her NYADA audition, yet I’m certain it’s not going to be a final word on her Big Apple-bound collegiate plans, was a good roadblock for a impression that customarily comes out on top. Puck didn’t have that most going for him to start with.
What did we think, Gleeks, was it all too small too late?
