Reasons why this week’s episode of ‘Glee’ was dumb:

  • Sue’s vendetta against glee club is so2009

    You’re the one that I want

  • A professor giving her least favorite student and her random roommate airmiles to fly home to Ohio for a high school musical? Ridiculous. Even if she’s trying to bed a student.
  • The musical performances were weak.
  • Santana returning to play Rizzo in the HIGH SCHOOL musical was almost as ridiculous as the original casting of a 34 year old Stockard Channing in the original.
  • The bulimia storyline – would anyone really think they were gaining weight that fast?

    Not to mention the terrible, terrible message this episode sends about weight and weight gain in general. “Feel like you’re eating a lot? Yeah, you’re going to get SO fat. And being/becoming fat is the worst thing that could ever happen to you! So don’t eat!”

    Yeah.

    Or how about the fact that they put on a production of Grease IN A WEEK!
    The only bright spot is that Sugar looked like a dead ringer for Frenchie.

    Wouldn’t Tina notice that the skirt had been taken in each time she altered it? And did Kitty mess with every outfit, because Sandy’s black outfit at the end would be hard to mess with. So much wrong with that storyline, and the rest of them really.

    I actually enjoyed the Santana/Wade/Cassandra number, but the rest were awful.

    Weren’t we told last season that this would be Tina’s year to shine? And yet here we are again, pushing Tina aside to bring back a *graduate* to be in the high school musical, because then who would play the oh-so-important role of Jan?! (Seriously, last week Mercedes said “Tina would be perfect for Jan” and I thought “Because neither has much of a discernible personality?”) Obviously Santana is the more obvious choice for Rizzo, but it was a bit of a stretch even for TV (or even for Glee for that matter) to make this believable. Couldn’t they throw Tina a bone just this once? She couldn’t have been any worse than new kid’s watered-down Danny.

      Yep. Tina should have graduated, Mercedes should have stuck around. Such a mistake.

    For a show that claims to be about embracing diversity, they seem to be sticking to their stereotypes. The new junior class are basically reincarnations of the “graduated students”…who somehow have enough time during school to fly halfway across the country to take part in a high school play? An uptight, virginal, catty cheerleader, a moody “misunderstood” guy, a bland football player, blah blah…

    Also if they are going to do a “I think I’m gaining weight” episode, at least dress the character in flowy dresses, otherwise how could she not realize that all of her normal clothes still fit perfectly?!
    I love Grease but I hated this episode!

  6. couldn’t agree more! i still have to watch the original Grease to wipe their bastardized version out of my mind. they are not handling the graduate story lines well at all. we don’t have time to care about the new characters because there’s a new one every week. and why have they brought back EVERYONE but Quinn!?!

    • Jill says:

      I saw Dianna Agron tweeted some photos recently that confirm that Quinn will be back at some point. :)
