  • A SURPRISINGLY WELL-DONE EPISODE

    Glee "Shooting Star" Review: Shots Fired

    "Shooting Star" wasn't perfect. It wasn't even in the same ballpark as perfect. But I think it was at least been standing in the parking lot of the ballpark, because what Glee did well in "Shooting Star," it did very well.

  • Episode Summary

    • Odd Twist

      I liked this episode a lot. However, it feels like a huge cop out to take it in the direction that they do in the following episodes. It makes the incident feel entirely too contrived and gutless on the part of the writers. There were less extreme (and more believable) ways to create the Becky-problem. And in the end, this entire episode feels like a piece of pointless dramatic overindulgence. Had they taken it the direction everyone expected, a very different story could have unfolded. Glee Club claims to be about including the outcasts, yet they may have rejected the shooter at some point. That kind of story could have shown that sometimes even the bullied bully others. After all, there is an awful lot of unfriendly activity in the room on almost every episode and much of it goes over as totally normal.moreless

      Just finished watching this episode and I was truly stunned!! You could feel the terror and fear in that choir room as they huddled, not knowing what was going on. Great work by the writers and by the cast themselves. I will agree with some of the comments here saying that it should have been a cliffhanger 2-part episode!! An opportunity to draw out a little more from the cast and hold the suspense over for a week.moreless
