Glee:

 126 Tidal Wave 17, Wed, 9th Jun '10 8:29:39 AM Relationship Status: Singularity
I cried so hard when I saw last nights episode.

Oh, Sue, you bitch, I love you!
Long Live the King
So, Mc Kinley High is going to be one of those schools where students are 3-4 year seniors?

Just curious...

Here's somethin' I've been wondering.

In the casting of Artie, did they specifically pass up a disabled actor who was good for the role in order to cast Kevin McHale or did he get the part because no one else was good enough? And if the latter, how is that Unfortunate Implications?

Wouldn't it be more unforunate if they randomly cast the first wheelchair bound person who showed up solely on the grounds that he's in a wheelchair instead of looking for actors who are actually capable?
This is still a signature.
Darkness and Disgrace
Well, they kind of justified the casting decision with the Safety Dance Imagine Spot in one episode.
Save a webcomic, read Commander Kitty! "You got your head all tangled up, but if I could only make you care..."
Has emotional range
As you might imagine, the market for wheelchair-bound actors is kind of limited. For that reason, there are probably even less paraplegic actors than dancers.
So I had serious Hype Backlash against glee for a while, mostly because of everyone singing one of my favourite songs (Don't stop believing) loudly and badly and generally ruining it for me. Plus my friends assured me it was rubbish.

Then I decided to actually watch it for myself. It's nowhere near as amazing as I've heard, but it's no where near as terrible either. It's got it's problems, but I can watch it without taking issue.

I'm a spoiler hound, so I knew about the whole Kurt/Finn YMMV. From what people had been saying, I was expecting much creepier behavious from Kurt. Yeah, he crossed the line, and it would have been great not to have all the blame put on Finn, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be.

I think people in general are overreacting with Glee. Fans, haters, people who call themselves fans but get offended at every little thing in the show.

To be honest though I'm getting a little weary of it. Earlier on Glee seemed like a promising subversive parody but now I'm... not so sure. The writers don't even seem to agree on what it's supposed to be. Cringe Comedy? Heartwarming musical? Dawson's Creek with Big Lipped Alligator Moments? and the only characters with consistent characterization are Brittany, Sue and Kurt's dad (maybe Kurt).
derp derp derp

Gah! Must... catergorize... unique show!

How dare they make character vary from episode from episode! I must be able to cosplay and write fan fics about them!

This one of the times I dislike nerds and geeks.

The show has mood whip-lash between being a comedy, drama, or a parody of musicals, comedies, and high-school dramas. This troper doesn't mind. BTW how come there aren't more tropers with Sue Sylvester signatures?

Across The Stars
Seriously, guys? Is this the Complain About Glee forum? And why does it have to be all or nothing?? Can we agree that yes, Kurt crossed the line with Finn, while still thinking he's an awesome character? (The answer to that is yes, because I do.) It's not black and white. Newsflash: people have flaws. So do you. I've done crazier things for love and not got bit on the arse for it nearly as bad as Kurt did. For the love of God, if you hate the show so much, quit watching it!!! Also please remember that the Back Nine were a rush order and are therefore more likely to be crappy.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by...

Anyone think they should have a Disney themed episode? They could sing God Help the Outcasts since the gLee club is rejected by the entire school. Quinn could sing I Won't Say I'm in Love about Puck. What are some other songs they could sing?

Collars gonna Coll
While I am not a "Gleek", or even that much of a fan of the show, I do watch it to be able to hold a conversation with a couple of obsessed friends, and to hear the covers. I'd really love to see some Elton John and Meat Loaf next season, to be honest. And for Chrissakes, you do a whole episode dedicated to Madonna, but the Beatles get a one-off song with no fanfare? For shame.

^Which makes me pose the question: What would people like to see being sung and by whom next season? Right now I'm thinking the guys doing "Stray Cat Strut" with Puck as lead and either Puck or Sue doing "Behind Blue Eyes".

lucyricardo10 (post-necromancing a bit, I know), that's a fantastic idea, although "I Won't Say I'm In Love" might be a bit late. However, I think Rachel needs a Dream Sequence involving "Always Once Upon A Time In New Your City" from Oliver & Company, don't you? And if Kurt does get a boyfriend, perhaps they could do a duet of "I'm Still Here" from Treasure Planet, or gender-flip "Kiss the Girl", unless some other UST-ridden couple shows up. And Puck or Finn could maybe act all "Oh, Disney, how dumb and kiddy" and then show that they totally adore one of the Award Bait Songs.

They really need to do Creep. It's very fitting, and it perfect for a choir.

Status Quo is God, Puck and Quinn and Finn and Rachel will probably break up next season and go back to wanting each other (groans), so that means Quinn could sing "I Won'tSay I'm in Love." God Help the Outcasts would be epic. Um.. Brittany and Santana singing Kiss the Girl. Sue could sing Be Prepared with goose-stepping Cheery-O's. Will could sing a version of Cruella De Vil about Sue. Love the Finn and Puck idea.

A Disney episode is EXACTLY what I was telling my friends they should do. HELLO, WRITERS, ITS PRACTICALLY THE CAPITAL OF AWESOME, OVER-THE-TOP MUSICALS! Though I think Schue should sing "Make a Man Out of You, " (That would be too badass for the small screen to contain) Rachel should sing "Part of Your World, " or maybe Quinn, one of the boys must sing "Friends on the Other Side, " (Personally, I think it would be a liiitle to predictable for Mercedes to sing Princess and the Frog.) Sue should sing "Poor Unfortunate Souls, " and the entire company should sing "Circle of Life, " "Beauty and the Beast, " or "Go the Distance."

Someone should start a facebook petition or whatever it was that got Betty White on SNL.

My own vote is for something from Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Also, as to other songs, I'm thinking Kurt and his promised Season 2 Hide Your Gays aversion need to convert "For Your Entertainment" to a duet, complete with someone lampshading the obviousness of it. Mostly because that would be too hot to contemplate. Oh, and Rachel ought to sing Meredith Brooks's "Bitch, " to my mind. "I'm a bitch, I'm a lover, I'm a child, I'm a mother, I'm a sinner, I'm a saint, I do not feel ashamed..."

Dat Troper
I want something from Rent, and I'm thinking "Take Me Or Leave Me" or "I'll Cover You" would be best. Mostly though I don't want them to do "Seasons of Love". As for Disney, the whole choir (or just the unpopular kids) doing "God Help The Outcasts" would be amazing.

Now that you bring up Rent, how about a full cast rendition of "La Vie Boheme"?

Rachel, Mercedes or Tina needs to do "All That Jazz".

Season 2 is doing a Britney Spears episode. :notrust

When they do a Michael Jackson tribute then we'll talk.
