Is it just me, or is Glee’s episodes getting more and more cheesy every week? This is extremely disappointing seeing as how I absolutely love Glee. Seriously though, I don’t know if the actors are getting worse at acting, the script is just horribly written, or a combination of the two. I found myself chuckling a few times throughout the show because I just couldn’t take it seriously, but at the same time I was disappointed in all the wrong things they seemed to be promoting.
Let’s start with how they basically make it seem okay to use fake I.D.’s and underage drink at a club. Yes, of course thousands of teens do it everyday but that doesn’t mean they should televise it. When Blaine’s cute new Warbler friend suggests Kurt and Blaine go out to the club, I couldn’t believe Kurt agreed to it. Granted, Kurt was the designated driver, but it was still a poor demonstration of what teens in high school should look forward to. Maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but we all know for damn sure there’s a significant difference in the amount of fourteen year olds watching this show compared to anyone over twenty-one.
The next thing about this episode was all of the sex they were promoting. We have enough Teen Mom shows already, the last thing we need is a prego Rachel Berry. Okay, sex is natural and the majority of high school students are having sex but that still doesn’t mean you should put it on TV even more! Rachel and Finn’s first attempt at their “special moment” was incredibly awkward to watch. I’m sure that’s how they were trying to portray it, but Finn takes awkward to the next level! I liked the fact they made a point to say that they “love” each other and whatnot, but still. The whole “love” part was destroyed when Blaine and Rachel lost it in order to improve their acting in a school play. It’s a school play for crying out loud! It’s not that serious!
Overall the episode was a huge letdown. Those were the only two things that I could focus on the entire show because of how awkward and disappointing it was. Of course, my favorite scene was “America” from McKinley’s West Side Story. It was perfect. Santana is an amazing vocalist and was perfect for that role. I was also glad I got a quick glimpse at Rory. He’s so cute! I really hope next episode picks up the slack a little bit. Otherwise, I don’t know how much longer I am going to be a Gleek.
What did you guys think? Were you more into the episode, or did it not do much for you either? Talk back in the comments!
