Glee 5X17 and Other Random Thoughts

I often enjoy reading other blog thoughts on an episode before sharing my own. It gives me a chance to read other interpretations, ponder questions or thoughts presented, and review points I maybe missed and consider or discard them. I wish Tumblr had a way of letting people know that other people are viewing their blog entries, even though they may not mark that it was liked or reblogged. I’ve read many I don’t particularly agree with so I don’t mark it as “liked” and I don’t reblog them so I wish there were some kind of tracking to at least let the blogger know that someone at least looked at their opinion or work. That being said, on to my thoughts…

The Motley’s shipping is super fast. Ordered it Friday night, here Monday morning. 

I have loved all the products I have gotten from The Motley. They also have really good customer service, always very prompt with answers to my questions.

Woah! Saw some Kurt/Chris vs. Blaine/Darren vitriol today and, maybe just me, but it kind of made me sick to my stomach.  It seems like these 2 guys are actually friends but have chosen to keep it private as a result of some of the hate directed towards other people in their lives as well as the intrusion into their personal lives. They also seem to be mutually proud of the  accomplishments of the other, not competitive or resentful of the other. Each is pretty accomplished in their own right, with their own strengths and weaknesses. Of course people will most likely prefer one over the other, but that is totally subjective and that is their right. If someone doesn’t agree with that opinion, arguing with them is usually fruitless. It would be great though if the energy used to spew derogatory comments about the actor/character being disliked could instead be used to celebrate the talents of the actor/character one prefers. Just as Holly Holliday promotes!

Wait. The official press release for the season finale of Glee makes no mention of LA, let alone Blaine in LA. Someone posted that they had info of Blaine going to LA and Kurt deciding to go with him at the last minute. They apparently got this info because this person also spoiled Eli C. This however, is unofficial. I’m not sure why so many are freaking out already. This may not even be accurate. When the day started people were still mad that Sam and Mercedes were getting married and Klaine was breaking up. What happened to that prospect? As a response it seems hard to believe they would have Kurt drop out of school after having him give Rachel the speech about staying in school. I know this is Glee, but I hope people don’t let themselves get too torn up before the episode airs or having something more concrete turn up.

Having done some small spec myself, I’m just wondering why there is so much speculation that some of the characters would be re-located to LA? I know the RM interview said the show would not be so NY-centric but did he actually say anything about LA? He also said Sue and Will would have big things happening (or something to that effect and we’d see what happens to other characters) so maybe the focus won’t be totally NY and we’ll see what’s happening with other characters in their various locations before it all rides off into the sunset. Personally, I love the all NY focus but having some of the story take place in LA, part in NY and parts in another part of the country would seem to really be spreading this show too thin.

So I guess if Glee decides to go with a long distance relationship for Klaine, they now have a song for them!

Just rewatching some earlier eps for Season 5 and can’t help but think what a waste so many of these episodes were, especially with how great the all NY eps have been. Things could have been developed so much better instead of the rush Glee is in now. Except for “Love, Love, Love” and “The Quarterback”, the rest of the eps were pretty hit or miss. Admittedly, each of the other episodes had bright spots but as a whole they just seemed like filler. Based on what we are seeing now, this could have been really a stellar season. I’m hoping this season can finish out strong and continue their final season with one of their best yet.

In fairness to the writers, I think that Finn’s journey was supposed to be the centerpiece of the McKinley side.  The writers were saying Finn had a huge new storyline and I seem to recall some hints he might get a midgame love interest, but definitely he was supposed to be the teacher figure and mentor for the new ND’s and the whole journey was supposed to be through his eyes (plus I think we would have seen him at college with Puck too).  Poor Cory’s passing threw a monkey wrench into all of that and left a gaping hole in what they planned to do.  The Quarterback had to be written and the whole storyline (including probably Rachel’s plotlines) had to be revamped with very little notice when they all were probably feeling pretty bad.  I suspect this Tina storyline and some of the others were not supposed to be a main focus of the story but had to be pushed up to main storyline and fill in for whatever they were going to do with Finn.  It probably would have been better to put the show on hiatus for longer so they could absorb the shock and re-plot the first half of the season.

I agree with the insane position the writers were put in and how that drastically affected the storylines. However, I think it still would have played out better if the story had just go on in (somewhat) real time instead of continuing the school year for a little more than half the season.
