I used to love Glee, but this season is leaving me thinking, "What the heck happened?" Here are the reasons Glee didn't make my list of favorite shows yesterday:
1.) Unnecessary 'lesbian' kisses - Last week when Brittany and Santana were shown making out I nearly jumped out of my skin. I felt that scene was very uncalled for and almost crude for Glee's 8:00 time slot. I adore Kurt and think his character's lifestyle has a valuable place on the show. But showing a lesbian kiss just for the heck of it was distasteful. It didn't have any real purpose in the storyline, was clearly done for ratings and really disappointed me.
2.) The "Assignments" - I miss the times in Glee where the music was part of the character's thought process - not an assignment from Mr. Shu. Scenes like Rachel singing "Take A Bow", Artie's "Dancing With Myself", Mercedes' "Bust Your Windows" and Kurt's version of "Rose's Turn" were important plot lines and very personal for the characters, not just a way to squeeze a song into the show. And PLEASE don't even get me started on the Britney Spears episode. What. The. Heck.
3.) It's the little things - Sue Sylvester has gone from delightfully mean to just crazy. The back and forth between Sue and Will was one of the best parts, but Sue has lost her edge. I understand that Puck's the 'bad boy', but stealing an ATM? Seems pretty serious, even for him. I hate Rachel's bangs. Why do the Cheerio's wear their uniforms ALL THE TIME? Quinn wears her uniform on her date to Breadstix. Really? You're going to wear a cheerleading uniform to a restaurant? Small things, but all together they just irritate me.
I REALLY hope they turn it around and start making the show fun again!
