    Glee's Season 3 Finale: A "Hot Mess Teary Train Wreck"

    Glee's Season 3 finale managed to tie up quite a few strings while simultaneously untying a few that we thought were tied up tight.

    • A Delightful Ending To A Lackluster Season

      9.0
      Okay, so this has got to be one of the most simplistic endings to a season of television I've seen a long time.



      When Glee does things simple which is hardly ever they do it amazingly well.



      I've got to say that this is one of the time's where less is more really paid off!



      At the beginning seeing the original members sing "Sit down you're rocking the boat" was a incredible throw back to the pilot.



      It was a great parallel to see how much the kids have grown not just as people but as performers.



      It was so cool to see all of the Seniors have there moment.



      I loved watching the Seniors sing to the Juniors and vice versa, it was really sweet.



      Burt's graduation present was fantastic, it was funny and really heartfelt at the same time.



      So wished that there was more Klaine but the scene we got to see between them was super adorable.



      The scene with Finn, Kurt and Rachel towards the end really threw me through a loop.



      I really had hoped they would of done a additional Klaine scene with Kurt but they didn't.



      The only thing I didn't like was the ending I didn't like how it focused on Rachel.



      While this finale defiantly had irritating moments the sheer simplicity of it and the rousing emotions it brought out of me made me truly love it.



      I'm really excited to see where all of my favorite Gleeks are going to be in the fall!moreless

      I've seen a handful of episodes due to the company I keept that night. Seems like I have some deal breakers when it comes to women. Anyways, this was one of them and I really lost interest. As a whole I just found it to be boring and not worth watching. If I want to hear music then I will hear the original song by the original artist.

      As for a bunch of grown adults playing students while singing and dancing, just silly. At the end of the show the girl turned to me and asked "I wonder what will happen next season", I told her the students will sing their resume out at a street corner. I'm no longer with that girl either. That reality was funnier then this fiction.moreless
    • A great way to end the season

      It's hard not to like how this season finally worked out. Even if it were a series finally, it couldn't have been better. The songs were great, the acting was top notch and heart felt. Even the moment with Sue and Quin was touching! I enjoyed Kurt's graduation present from his dad. While most of the show was pretty predictable, I have to admit, I was surprised Kurt didn't get in. I figured Fin wouldn't but Kurt's was a surprise. Also, the scene at the train station was excellent!! Also, I like the scene of Rachel entering New York, had a "That Girl", "Mary Tyler Moore" feel to it. Though more "That Girl" since she's going into acting and not news.



      Overall, a great ending to a great season! Can't wait till next year.moreless

      Genial

    • Goodbye? More like "See 'ya next Fall"

      I REALLY wanted to like this episode more than I did. I appreciate that the writers didn't go totally over-the-top sappy, trying to get the audience weepy the whole episode. I also liked a few of the twists: "Ousting" Figgins? Finchel not getting married! (Not that I thought they really should). Kurt and Finn not getting into their respective schools (though I kinda saw that one coming).



      Musically the episode was okay - Rachel's "Roots Before Branches" was well sung (of course) and well acted, although I do agree that the Marlo Thomas "That Girl" look with the knee highs and Barbie pink roller suitcase was a little much. Kurt's "I Remember" was terrific. I usually don't like his voice, but it really worked. LOVED Burt's "Single Ladies" - so great! HATED the "Glory Days" number - as Figgins is calling out the graduates like a curtain call. Why was Emma giving out the diplomas and Figgins calling the names, btw? Shouldn't it have been the other way around?



      So next season? Finn off to boot camp (won't happen). Kurt, Santana, and Puck stuck in Lima (Community College, perhaps?). Unique joins ND (given). Sue goes out on maternity (does she come back? Does JL have a new contract?). Roz and Sue try to oust Figgins (outside of sexual harassment how's THAT gonna happen?). Glee gets some new blood (I better watch the Glee Project this season!). Sorry, but I'm not feelin' it.moreless
