Does Glee Suck This Season? Teen.com’s Editors (And You!) Weigh In!
Here’s what sucks about this season of Glee — we have to wait until November 1 for new episodes. Actually, we’re kidding. What sucks is a whole lot more. The songs, perhaps? Maybe that they’re trying so hard with the storylines that they’re failing miserably? Or, say, that there’s no more guest stars or, ahem, Trouty mouth? The editors of Teen.com basc get into arguments every time we talk about it. We have quite varied opinions on this season of Glee, and we’re here to give ’em to you straight. Don’t hate us, gleeks (or Fox, or Ryan Murphy), because the show still has its moments. But as a whole? We’re meh. WDYT?
DISCLAIMER: We are not trying to trash Glee. You all know how much we write about the show every week heart the show, right?! But we really wanted to tell you how we’ve been feeling and find out if we’re the only ones with these opinions, mmkay? Good. Glad we cleared that up. Now…
Here’s what the eds think of Glee Season 3 so far:
“The first two episodes of this season weren’t that great. But I loved the third ep: Great songs, great dancing, and an actual focus on the characters I actually care about (‘cept for Emma’s ginger supremacists parents. WTF?). If the show can continue that, then heck no it doesn’t suck. And P.S. More Blaine = better eps. Just sayin’.” – Kaitlin, Editorial Coordinator
“Glee doesn’t suck, but the spark is gone. The writers keep rehashing the same storylines and there have been too many musical theater tunes lately. But I still watch every Tuesday. Maybe it’s because I refuse to give up just yet. Or maybe it’s because of Darren Criss, who is clearly the best thing to hit TV, like, ever.” – Alex, Editorial Intern
“I can’t get into Glee. I’m just not really into the whole living-life-as-a musical thing. After a while they just start to annoy me. So does Glee suck this season? I say, Glee sucks every season.” – Priscilla, Editorial Assistant
“During Season 2 and even up until now, I feel like the show has lost its heart and is constantly trying to wow or shock the audience instead of focusing on the characters we’ve grown to know and love. One thing that really bothers me is when I’m introduced to new characters (i.e. Sam, Lauren), and then all of a sudden, they disappear. I’m not saying Glee is a bad show, but I definitely think it needs to refocus.” — Dan, Deputy Editor
“I was totally addicted to season one, but Glee has gone completely downhill from there. The show is totally over-the-top, the characters and storylines are ridic and unrealistic, and I kind of can’t even watch it now. So, yeah, Glee definitely sucks this season. – Jessica, Production Assistant
“This season has its high points — I love that Shelby is finally back and song covers like the one from Dreamgirls were ah-mazing — but overall, the show just doesn’t excite me anymore. I’m just seriously hoping that the rest of the season involves more Top 40 songs and some unexpected love triangles to get me back into it.” — Haley, Associate Editor
“I don’t think Glee sucks this season, but I do miss Trouty Mouth Sam Evans and his Bieber swag. Who’s with me?” – Kristen, Editorial Intern
So, what do you think of the show this season? Which of the editors do you agree or disagree with most? Don’t be afraid to tell us how you really feel in the comments. Really. We did.
