This won’t take long. I’m still astounded at what just happened. Did you watch the season finale of Glee? I did. I want to track Ryan Murphy down and punch him in the face. In a good way. Not only did he have us all going with what was going to happen next season, we were all led to believe everything was going to be wrapped up in a neat little package. It’s like he adopted a puppy. He let that puppy grow up. Fed that puppy. Played with that puppy. Patted that puppy. Then he ran over that puppy with his SUV and beat the bloody corpse with his fabulous pink baseball bat.
No, I’m Not Mad, I Always Look Like I Just Smelled Shit
New Directions won nationals! Puck gets to graduate! The fat, ugly, annoying girl was only in one episode! Jeff Goldblum played a gay dad, and it had nothing to do with chaos theory! (or did it…?) But then the season finale happened. For weeks, statements were released that a show within a show would happen where Rachel, Finn and Kurt all go to New York to live out their dreams. Then Finn didn’t get into his school…then Kurt didn’t get into his school…then Rachel did. Wait, what? Ok, that’s fine, they can all still go together. Burt Hummel just did the single ladies dance, now anything can happen. But then Finn “let Rachel go” and she gets on a train to New York. Alone. Fade to Black. WHAT. WHAT THE HELL. No wrap up for Santana? No wrap up for Finn and Kurt? The army? WHAT??? I JUST got on board for Finnchel…and I was just starting to tolerate the existence of Lea Michelle as a human being. For years, the much more talented Jenna Ushkowitz stood in her shadow, while I gritted my teeth in annoyance. Her humongous mouth turning every song into a show tune. However, I started to come around to the two of them. People cried, not me, because I was in shock. I’m not saying this because I’m a dude, I’ll be the first to admit it that I cried when Topanga broke up with Cory and moved away in Boy Meets World. But this. Oh boy.
Shut Up! The Only Reason I Keep You Around is Because You Know Vader!
I have to hand it to Mr. Murphy. Hand it to him in the shape of a sock full of quarters which I will use to knock him out…but still hand it to him. He played us all. Will the storyline still commence of a show within a show? Maybe. But now we have to wait what seems like six years before we find out anything. I’m pissed. But that is what makes for good television. I took a deep breath and compared Ryan Murphy to a good heel. For those of you who have never watched professional wrestling, a heel does his job right by making the crowd hate him. He entertains by making filthy, fat, hicks sporting John Cena t-shirts boo and chant “you suck”. You caught me with my “rise above hate” hat on Mr. Murphy, and fine job. It takes a lot for me to get emotionally invested in a show and even more to get legitimately upset about it. So good for you. Now we just have to wait forever to see how the hell he is going to pull this storyline out of the toilet.
I Spend The Money I Would Waste On Dates On Replica Belts. Who’s a Loser Now???
Many people view season four of Glee as what will probably be a disappointing end to a once great show. Those people are probably right. Glee definitely lost it’s luster it once had in season one and a majority of season 2. Hell, anything that has Uncle Jessie as a guest star wins awesome points in my book. But now the cast is scattered, story lines were left unfinished that can’t be salvaged next season and more importantly, we will be seeing much less of Lea Michelle’s monstrous mouth. Don’t get me wrong, she’s one of the most talented girls I’ve ever seen on tv…but she just irks me. I still have a soft spot for any of the kids on that show…and now maybe with the main cast gone, they can focus next season on the other kids who have more than proved their worth and talent this season. Take the reigns Mr. Murphy…the ball’s in your court.
McKinley Horror Story…Hmmmmm….
