    Glee "Glease" Review: Inducing Bulimia... *Are* There Worse Things Glee Could Do?

    Despite featuring an homage to one of the happier musicals to have graced Broadway, "Glease" was, when it came to the stories of Glee's own characters, quite the downer.

  • Episode Summary

    A production of Grease brings some old flames back together, when Racheland Kurt decide to return to McKinley High. Kurt's ex-boyfriend, Blaine, is starring in a production of the musical and Finn is directing, giving the former couples a chance to reunite for the first time since their breakups.

    • finally jumping the shark or is there still hope?

      I agree with MyFavShows, I think too this season might kill Glee. It's not the same any more, and I don't know why exactly. One thing for sure is this new and old character mess. I watch a show because I like the people on it. So the strategy to bring many new characters and mess with the old ones is very dangerous even though inevitable. Then Kitty sucks and the issue Bulimia was really badly handled (don't I get suspicious if everything else still fits and only my musical costume is not?) Also weird why Finn didn't say anything when Unique's parents made Unique not wear girl's clothes any more? And isn't there still a no bullying policy at McKinley? And what strange reaction was the first reaction to Finn becoming the new director of Glee? And even if it should have been a shiny episode because of Grease, it somehow wasn't.moreless

      No offense to anyone, but I thought it was really unfair to the new people (Marley and Ryder) were cut out so they could have a Finn and Rachel scene. It should have been Marley and Ryder the whole song, instead of cutting them out for a large portion of the song so Finn and Rachel could sing together. I think it's about time to move on from the old characters and shine more light on the new ones. And I'm not saying completely cut out Finn and Rachel and Kurt, etc. But just slowly fade them out throughout the seasons because I'm sure they're not going to be visiting the Glee club when they're working for a living and in their late twentiesmoreless

      So that episode got progressively worse as time went on. The only really great thing that I took from it is that Brittana still loves each other and I really want them to get back together. The moment when Finn walked into the choir room in the beginning was priceless (sorry). I'm glad that the other characters pointed out the flaws in Will's plan and reasons why Finn shouldn't be taking over for him.



      Kitty was pretty vicious and her nonchalance is annoying. I can't believe she not only tampered with Marley's costume, but then also tried to get her become bullemic. I can't wait for her to figure out what her effect on other people is. In regards to Glee addressing eating disorders, I was really hoping they would give a meaningful message to all teenagers. For the past 3 years, disorders have been treated like a joke, especially with Santana. They sped through the storyline and still promoted mixed messages. 'Skinny forever' or 'I don't want to kiss a girl with puke on her breath'? So which one, Glee? (The latter is better if you ignore the off-putting possessiveness. Marley's decision to stop (in the moment) should have been about her and not her crush/bf.) The story was too rushed but I think Glee will return to the storyline soon so we'll have to see.



      The Cassandra/Brody storyline was stupid. First off, the whole point of a Brody character is a plot device to make Finn/Finchel look good, and don't pretend it's not true. It's really stupid for a teacher to actively attempt to make her student jealous by sleeping with said student's kinda-sorta boyfriend/friend. I know Cassie hates/is jealous of Rachel but that's really low. Loved seeing Kurt, Rachel, and Santana again. I'm not even going to talk about Finn and Rachel at the end. Yeah the 'no contact' is great for someone like me who doesn't even like Finchel, but once again it's him calling the shots for them both. I'll be disappointed if they go through with the Blaine depression storyline, and I feel like it will inevitably end up like the Marley one in this episode: rushed and based on a double standard of giving a positive view on an issue previously joked about.



      This whole season seems to be the recycling of old storylines and parallel characters and it's frustrating. These new characters should get to develop on their own, without having to be the "new so-and-so." The show has to stop with addressing an issue because it's a controversial or difficult topic. And whenever they do, they need to handle topics with more dignity and respect because there are people who are affected by the issue. Putting out a message of "You'll be skinny forever" isn't a good way to introduce an anti-bulimia storyline. Ugh- this show.moreless

      This season may kill Glee. Used to love the show, but everything seems to be falling apart, especially with confusing episodes like this one. Glee covers hard issues but they are starting to cross boundaries. I think what is killing it, is the heavy usage of old characters. They should have just wrote them off and been done with it.

      Kitty as Quinn 2.0 seemed ok in the beginning but now she is just too extreme. Im starting to loathe her character. As for Wade, I am so confused as to why his parents hate the idea of him as unique now that they are in Lima. If i remember correctly in Season 3, wade wanted to come to lima so that he wasn't being pressured and could be whoever he/she wanted. Now all of sudden the parents think its a bad idea. So confused on that issue.

      What is up with the rules being bent? It is annoying though it has some good outcomes. I mean I love Naya, but coming back to high school to play in the school musical. I doubt that would ever happen. And obviously Finn leading the Glee club. It wouldn't happen but I guess hes getting his confidence back.

      The relationships are still on the fritz for the 3 old couples. Tina and Mike are thinking of getting back, though i dont really know why they broke up in the first place. Marley/Ryder is an ok choice, kind of quick to start the relation but we shall see what drama comes from it.

      Cassandra and Brody = WTF? I mean i understand cassy is trying to give "tough love" to Rachel, but sleeping with brody. In what universe is that allowed. Im sure cassy will keep her job, which would never happen. Its just really weird.



      Highlights

      - Grease

      - Naya Rivera, She is just too amazing

      - Kate Hudsons awesome character

      - Vanessa's booty shake on a headstand, hot; I had to rewind just confirm what I just saw

      - Marley, except while throwing up. Marley/Melissa is just so adorable

      - Limited Wade time, I personally don't like his character or voice

      - BigMike! I miss Chuck....moreless
