Choke

glee, new directions, impossible things, blaine, kurt, rachel, artie, klaine, regionals, darren criss, finn, they kissed, chris colfer, darren criss,

With the third season of Glee coming to a close, “Choke” is the first episode that I feel focused more on those graduating then other issues. In other words, the episode was not over dominated with Blaine. We actually went an entire episode and Darren did not have a solo. I thought the world might end before that, but I was wrong, thankfully. Obviously that was dramatic and I don’t entirely mean it, but needless to say, I welcomed the lack of Blaine solos. Darren Criss fans really can’t complain either, Blaine still had plenty of screen time (more than many other characters) so it was a nice middle ground. Blaine was still there, he just wasn’t in my face every five seconds.

That all being said, I liked the episode. While it was not the best or my favorite, I feel it began to point the show back into a direction that will help bring it full circle and pull the focus back to the original glee club members and the graduating seniors.

Saturday Night Gleever

glee, new directions, impossible things, blaine, kurt, rachel, artie, klaine, regionals, darren criss, finn, they kissed, chris colfer, darren criss,

I skipped reviewing Glee last week for two reasons. Firstly, I was not able to watch “Big Brother” on Tuesday, and by the time I was able to watch it, it seemed irrelevant to review. And secondly because my bias against the character of Blaine, would have made for a more negative review than the episode deserved. On a whole level, it was a great episode and guest star Matt Bomer was amazing, but as I have stated previously, I think there has been too much Blaine this season. I do not approve that Blaine gets a brother episode before Finn/Kurt. They are two of the leads (well they were prior to Blaine) yet we’ve never actually seen them have brother time, which is disappointing.

I was hoping that “Saturday Night Gleever” may bring a break to the Blaine centric songs, but to my dismay the first person we see and the first solo of the night went to Blaine. Really, Glee? Really? Since when is he the only person on the show? Honestly has Kurt (the only reason Blaine is in New Directions) had a solo since pre- West Side Story? I don’t think so. Seeing as Kurt (not Blaine) is the one graduating, it may be nice to give some of the actual Seniors songs.

It’s funny I don’t actually hate Blaine or Darren Criss, I just feel they have over saturated Glee and I want other characters to sing. There is just too much Blaine, and he’s not all that interesting, to be honest.

Aside from Blaine opening the episode, he actually did fade away, which I was grateful for. The rest of the episode (for me) was overshadowed by the return of Jonathan Groff’s Jesse St James. Although, Groff was only in the episode for probably one minute, he captivated the screen. I really hope he is utilized more in future episodes, because he is far too talented to just have a couple scenes culminating a few seconds each. I hope that they give him more material or a song in the future. He is an amazing guest star and deserves more. However, I loved the scene between him, Kurt and Mercedes. It was perfect. The dynamics and tension were phenomenal.

On My Way

"On My Way" marked the last new episode of Glee until April. Fans everywhere have begun having nervous breakdowns…but I am sure the weeks will fly by and our favorite musical high schoolers will be back on our screens before we know it.

The Spanish Teacher

glee, new directions, impossible things, blaine, kurt, rachel, artie, klaine, regionals, darren criss, finn, they kissed, chris colfer, darren criss,

"The Spanish Teacher" received much hype from the cast and fans in preparation for Ricky Martin’s arrival. I have never been a huge fan of his, nor did I take Spanish in any level of school (took French from Middle School through College) making tonight’s episode hard to get into. I understand what they were trying to achieve with this episode, and think it was a great idea, just for me personally it wasn’t one of my favorites.

Hold on to Sixteen

glee, new directions, impossible things, blaine, kurt, rachel, artie, klaine, regionals, darren criss, finn, they kissed, chris colfer, darren criss,

"Hold on to Sixteen" was a great episode of Glee. There were a few moments where I was skeptical of the plot, but I’ve come to learn, Glee is what it is. The cult drama comes with its own box of crazy. I’ve learned it is best to just accept the show and enjoy it despite its flaws.

Aside from a few moments, the episode overall was wonderful. The song choices were superb. They were sung beautifully. I am glad the focus was back on the Glee Club members and not the teachers. Also, almost everyone got a moment to sing, which is a huge feat for the show. Typically, especially in competitions, we are delivered an overwhelming amount of solos and duets by the same characters every time, but luckily tonight’s Sectionals were different.

I don’t understand why every episode of the series can’t be like tonight’s. Yes, they are high schoolers and they have their drama and fights, but in the end, they know that it will all be okay because they have each other.

This gif, describes perfectly the episode and what I truely believe every person watching Glee should understand.

In one simple episode, we got Sam Evans back, the old Quinn back, and there is finally peace between everyone. I expect that peace to be short lived as what is Glee with out the drama, but for now, the New Directions are back together. One happy family, where everyone is where they are supposed to be.

4.5/5

Asian F

glee, new directions, impossible things, blaine, kurt, rachel, artie, klaine, regionals, darren criss, finn, they kissed, chris colfer, darren criss,

"Asian F" was getting a lot of buzz as one of the best episodes of Glee. I try not to read spoilers for the show because RIB seem to change their minds on the plot all the time. I found it’s easier to ignore all spoilers and interviews about future episodes, because I don’t want my feelings toward what is happening or might happen in an episode to effect my thoughts beforehand. Similarly, I try not to listen to the songs prior to them airing on the series, because I don’t want any one to be more favored than another.

That being said, despite trying to be impartial going into this episode, all the buzz I was seeing on my Tumblr dash was getting me a little excited for what could happen in “Asian F.”
