^ I don't mind characters "switching" from one personality to another (like from mean to good - after all we all have some goodness and badness in us), as long as it's consistent, and predictable, and not consistently unpredictable, or predictably inconsistent.

This guy was the male lead in season 1 and now his plot-lines are footnotes of an episode, or if he gets an A plot, we all either find it boring or offensive. He become completely marginalized, but the saddest thing is that most people couldn't care less. All his plot-lines revolve around Wemma. And if you don't ship Wemma or simply don't care, like me, it does him no favors.

I feel sorry for Matt actually. When the pilot first aired, Chris used to regard Mr Schue as an inspirational teacher, judging from one of his very early tweets 'Will reminds me of my Speech and Debate coach. Everyone should have a teacher like that. : )' I doubt he can say the same thing now about the current Will Schuester. I still can't believe the script had Will saying 'It's not your fault that you have this disease' to Emma in the Yes/No episode. 'Disorder' or 'illness' would have been more acceptable terms to use.

I find that the characters on Glee are stereotyped and written badly to some degree, and it takes an exceptional actor to make the character come alive and become something beyond what is dictated by the script. And it's obvious when the actors fail to do that-- the characters they portray become boring and the audience fail to sympathize with them. Will suffers from this. Others I could think of -- Tina, Blaine, Rory, Brittany, Mercedes.

I often wish that the writing on Glee is good enough that it doesn't rely so heavily on the actors to 'save' the characters and the show.

I was rewatching Bad reputation and few other season 1 episodes of Glee and I once again realized how much I loved the old Glee and also how much I miss Kurt's interaction with more people in Glee club. Noawadays when he is not with Blaine he is with Rachel. Always! I am not a Klainer and I know most of the people here are fans of Hummelberry friendship, but I am not.. They are so bouncy and sugary together, I loved superior and judgmental Kurtcedes much better. And frinemies Hummelberry were also priceless. The season 1 of Glee was not flawless but had a great atmosphere and still is very enjoyable to watch...a tleast for me. I can't say it about most of the newer episodes. :(

And I really hope they'll start giving Kurt more scenes with other people than just these two...

Preach. As must as I love Lea, I'm dying for Kurt to interact with all the othe guys and girls in Glee. I mean how awesome would it be to see him interact with people like Puck, Santana, Artie, Mike, Quinn, there's so much to explore there. Now Hummelberry is just on an overkill.

I must admit that I am almost in the phase that I feel disappointed whenewer Lea tweets about filming with Chris. Well, I am happy that Kurt has a scene but I am scared they are wasting all of his screentime for scenes with Rachel and Blaine.

Neither do I. I like rachel only in comic scenes/SL and this happens mostly in her scenes with finn. Kurt is much more funny and entertaining when he plays the judgemental bitch with rachel's silliness.

Me too :( Normally I skip most of Rachel's scenes anyway but now I have to watch them since she's always with Kurt. I miss Kurtcedes so much. I was so mad only scene Kurt and Mercedes were together this season ended up being about Finchel Rolling Eyes

Rachel is actually one of my favorite characters, but I just like Kurt and Rachel better and find them more interesting when they aren't sugary best friends. And she still have scenes with other people, Kurt not so much... :(

Exactly, they could have had a frenemy dynamic or something like Kurtcedes where they could be sweet when they wanted to and bitchy when they wanted to. Now they're just sugary sweet to each other all the time. Boring. These writers really don't know how to write long term relationships. They all get super boring after a point a.k.a Klaine.

Spoiler:
banzai I wonder if the girl in the wheelchair is really in a wheelchair or if they are doing some kind of a wheelchair scene for the show.

I do not want Justin Beiber wanna be on the show. I don't care how good he sings or acts.

She is a wheelchair and if I read correctly the description, there is a transgendered teen and a blind one. I'm seeing a trend there. But we all know that the hottest/cutest guys will win. That is why I will not watch that crap. Just like last time.

'Glee' Official William McKinley High School Yearbook

Cue up “Graduation (Friends Forever)” by Vitamin C (which the Glee kids will hopefully cover later this season to send off seniors Kurt, Rachel, and Finn) and flip through the Official William McKinley High School Yearbook! It may look like a regular yearbook on the outside, but apparently McKinley gossip columnist Jacob Ben Israel had full editorial control, since the theme is — not surprisingly — all glee club all the time. The book hits stores May 1 from Little, Brown, but in the meantime, EW has an exclusive peek at the cover, spreads on Rachel and Blaine, some fun “Most Likely To…” pages, a very helpful “Hookup Chart,” and more. Read on, and H.A.G.S.!

re: TGP 2.0 One thing I’m noticing this year and last is they really aren’t choosing a particularly attractive group compared to the current cast, who are plenty diverse but good looking like any normal TV cast, including the five who play underdogs.

She is a wheelchair and if I read correctly the description, there is a transgendered teen and a blind one. I'm seeing a trend there. But we all know that the hottest/cutest guys will win. That is why I will not watch that crap. Just like last time.
Exactly, trying to create headlines with a diverse reality show cast while fully intending to choose the most mainstream (and, if last time was any indication, also boring & untalented) one(s) is sort of repulsive, I hope they get called out if/when that happens again.

Anyways, I found some speculation on the final six on ONTD_Glee, not sure if it’s right or not: possible spoiler
Mah, a waste of money.
And too much Blaine for a preview.
A junior shouldn’t be there at all, WTF.

Their ‘most likely to’ part is hilarious and dead on for pretty much everyone though, I enjoyed that.

Well, if you don't mind, you can also scan it and upload it before running away Laughing (the blaine pages are not necessary though).

I know we can't ask so much to Glee, well to the writers but today I was talking with other people about the series and they should try to explore other topics like how people feel about their self image; there's Mercedes who has issues with food and Quinn has similar problems during season one and I remember she said this season "I'm as thin as a model" like it was something good dryy


PS: About the yearbook, TOO MUCH BLAINE.

I just looked at the yearbook pictures, and I agree, too much Blaine. I mean seriously, he gets a whole page in the dodge ball spread, and everyone else is squished onto one? Hopefully the rest of the book is a bit more evenly distributed (though I doubt it--the bulk of the Blaine fans seem younger, and they are more likely to buy the book). I won't be buying it.

Oh, and the best part. Most likely to be a househusband: Blaine. So does that mean he's going to stay home and take care of the kids while Kurt is bringing home the bacon? Somehow I doubt that.

I just saw the yearbook - isn't it supposed to be about graduates? why is blaine there? also, rachel's constantly placed w/ Finn - can't she just be w/ herself? lol at the comments where people are sick of blaine now. i remember back in S2 almost nobody said anything negative about him.

year book is supposedly about graduating seniors. each graduates will have his/her taken. then there are also group pictures of clubs and such which may include non-seniors. but the highlights should always be the graduating class. the use of blaine here is atrocious. can't they wait til next year? I don't care if he takes half of next year's year book. at least it would make sense.

GLEE ‏ @GLEEonFOX
We wanted to let you, the fans, know first that #glee will return for a 4th season this Fall! RT this if you’re as excited as we are.

Fox is jumping on the early renewal bandwagon, ordering a fourth season of Glee, a second season of New Girl and a third season of Raising Hope.

“Over the past season, New Girl has become the hottest new appointment series for young adults; Raising Hope has established itself as one of the smartest and most unique offbeat comedies on television; and Glee has continued its success as a genre-defying, global cultural phenomenon,” said Fox president Kevin Reilly. “All three of these comedies add a fresh and distinctive flavor to our Tuesday nights, and I’m really happy to bring them back to our air next season.”

Still no word on the fate of bubble series Fringe, Touch, Alcatraz, Breaking In and The Finder.
http://tvline.com/2012/04/09/fox-renews-glee-season-4-new-girl-season-2/

Lea Michele ‏ @msleamichele
#Glee was officially picked up for season 4 today! So happy! Can't wait to see where Rachel will be next year! Fingers crossed for NYC! Smile

Glee has averaged 8.9 million total viewers and a 3.8 rating in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic so far this season, according to Nielsen. With the show's third year marching toward the graduation of its core cast members including Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer, the fourth will continue to feature the stars in what the network and actors have called a ground-breaking fashion, potentially a show-within-a-show format.
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/fox-renews-glee-new-girl-raising-hope-309625

Well people, our nightmares have come to pass. The horror known as Glee, has been renewed. BIG SHOCKER. humhum

Rejoice or cry yourself to sleep. To each his own.
