What I’m Watching: Glee

Glee: Season 4, Episode 3 “Makeover” (D+)

I’m getting so fed up with this show that I think I’m going to have to stop watching it before it drives me insane. My first point of contention with this episode is the meteoric rise of one Kurt Hummel. Applying to an interest at was enough of a stretch, but he managed not only to get accepted during the interview, but also to get caught breaking in and pardoned and then invited to have his opinion heard on a regular basis by Sarah Jessica Parker’s Isabelle. To call it unrealistic and ridiculous would be too kind. Blaine’s loneliness at McKinley does seem trivial by comparison, but that’s the problem with following the graduates on their improbable and preposterous post-high school journeys. Blaine’s speedy election with vice president Sam by his side was silly as well, and it’s about time he realized that Kurt was the only reason he transferred to McKinley and left an ideal private school situation. I’d like for Sam and Brittany to get together already since little is being accomplished in the interim. Will’s potential departure would likely be a good thing for the show, but I’m not sure exactly who or what would replace him, since the idea of Sue running the glee club does not appeal at all. Rachel offering to cook Brody dinner was so monumentally stupid, especially if she didn’t want to start a romance with him, and he totally went back on his word right away by kissing her less than thirty seconds after claiming that he wanted things to stay platonic. Finn’s arrival at that exact moment couldn’t have been more choreographed, and I’m only mildly curious to find out what comes next.
