Yes, yes. We know! It’s been quite a while since we’ve updated our blog and we 100% apologize for that. Things have just been crazy lately. Alli is bogged down with work stuff and trying to get her schedule organized so she can continue making us all laugh with her pithy musings about “Glee” and “Pretty Little Liars” (when it returns). And I have been…well…for lack of a better word: depressed. It’s just been difficult to be motivated lately since my life took somewhat of a dramatic turn a few months ago. It’s just been a little difficult finding the spark and the drive for things I once loved. I’m slowly getting back into it all. Baby steps.
We are very sorry that our Glee-caps have fallen by the wayside, so I thought I’d catch you all up on our thoughts about season 4 thus far. Especially before we get to the dramatic “Break-up Episode.” (On a side note, I think another reason we’ve been lacking on the Glee-caps is because there has been a seriously lack of Santana Lopez so far. But we’ll get into that shortly.) Let me start off by saying what we like about this season so far:
What we like:
Rachel. Rachel. Rachel.
I’ll be the first to admit it: I was NEVER a Rachel fan. She was annoying and shrill and oversang everything while looking like she was going to swallow my head whole. But I gotta say: I am LOVING the new Rachel! Well, actually she’s pretty much the same Rachel only in a new setting and without Finn schlepping about, bringing her down. I think it’s the new setting and the Finn-ectomy that’s got me all riled up about her. Well…that and the fact that somehow she got ten times hotter over the summer. That performance of “Oops I Did It Again” in the Britney 2.0 episode was seriously smoking. And I’m liking this new boy. Much better than Finn (sorry Finchel fans) and pretty damn hot.
We love the new girl! She’s cute and fun and real. She’s not a caricature like a lot of the other Glee members and that’s what makes her so relatable. She also has a great voice. We’re not-so-secretly hoping that she’s gay (because that's what we do. We want to make everyone gay!), but since the sparks are flying with Jake, it doesn’t look too likely. (Am I the only one that thinks it’s cute that they are Jake and Marley? Like in “A Christmas Carol?” Scrooge’s old partner, Jacob Marley. Did I just reveal my nerdiness? I probably did. I think their couple nickname should be Dickens.)
The change of scenery is a breath of fresh air for this show. Now all we need is for Santana to move there! New York will get a hell of a lot more sexy.
Brittany getting lots of screen time
What We Don't Like:
Epic sad face. Where in the actual fuck is Santana Lopez? I need my weekly fix of Naya Rivera to keep myself from getting the shakes and they are hiding her from me. That is NOT very nice. I know she’ll be in episode 4, but still. Three full episodes with no Santana? I’m sorry, but that 7-second Skype scene did NOT count. No wit. No insults. No Snix. No sweet lady kisses. And it is just not fair to have Brittany talk about scissoring. What a tease! So cruel. This season of Glee will not be complete until I see my Snix. They are really making a stupid move by not having Naya in every single episode. This girl CARRIED seasons 2 and 3 and I know she was the only reason lots of people still watched the show. And this is how they treat her? Not a smart move. They are upsetting all the Santana fans, particularly me.
Brittany being a downer
Booooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My heart broke for her in the Britney 2.0 episode when she was waiting for Santana to sign on to Skype. The poor girl. Sad Brittany makes me sad.
Sam being dumb
What is going on here? Sam was always kind of a dork with his impressions and whatnot, but he was never dumb. In the two seasons we’ve known him, he hasn’t really given off any clue that he was an airhead. So why would they all of a sudden make him dumb? You can’t just change a character’s intelligence level. It doesn’t work like that and it’s completely distracting and makes me lose faith in the writers.
We don’t like her. We don’t need her. Quinn Fabray, she is NOT. We already have way too many characters on the show. Why don’t they clean house, starting with her?
My apologies to those who like this character, but every time Alex Newell is on screen, it drives me bonkers. This kid cannot act! Like, at all. And it drives me crazy and it’s all I can focus on and it takes me out of the story. I know it’s Glee and all, but he is too much of an overactor. Not a fan.
So this is pretty much the abridge version of how we feel about season for of Glee. It has its good moments and its bad moments, like every season. I guess time will tell how it will play out, but I know for a fact I’m going to have tissues ready for Thursday’s break-up episode. In the meantime, we will be dreaming of sweet lady kisses….and maybe a little more.
