    Well, the "face for radio" preview coming up....might still be a downer for Rachel--of course that's kind of what they said about Barbra, so maybe that will just inspire her.

    How did he destroy Becky this week? I must have missed that

    While I think Lea is a nasty spoiled brat, I do think she's extremely gifted and I actually like Rachel. I don't think Lea is a great actress, but she's got a great voice, especially for Broadway. I'd rather see Rachel than Blaine, so the more he's on, the less inclined I am to watch. While Darren Criss might be a nice guy, I've never found Blaine to be all that interesting.

    Sue in NYC was silly. That was probably more about keeping Jane Lynch happy than it was about advancing the plot.

    The longer this show goes on, the more irritating Tina becomes. I hope we don't see her much in the future.

    Once again, I find myself wishing this was the final season.

    I stopped watching after the tribute to Cory. I stop by to see if I made a mistake but by reading your post I guess I'm glad I stopped watching when I did. I'm glad I'm missing the slow death of a once fun and lighthearted show.

    I wondered if Rachel's storyline might somehow mirror Lea's - star in broadway musical, where the musical is highly acclaimed and wins a bunch of awards, but the lead actress is hardly recognized. So I guess the "fail" would be not being nominated for any awards, while the musical is. Then the final season could follow Rachel to Hollywood, a la, Lea.

    When you look back at Becky in early episodes, as in the bake sale/wheels episode, Becky was so sweet and timid. I too, find her move to nasty disappointing.

    I can see where you are coming from with Blaine. Early Blaine was strong and likable, current Blaine is an insecure wuss. I still love Darren Criss' voice and would rather listen to him than other guys on the show.

    I had read that they were coming up with a way to keep Sue on the show when the plot moves from Lima, so I am shocked that she walked away from restaurant guy. If he was a one and done, they should have cast a true celebrity chef.

    I too am done with Tina.

    I still love this show and find myself rooting for Rachel. I think I watch this show more for the music than the plot lines.

    The Becky part was during Rachel's nightmare. Becky was shouting very nastily "GET ON WITH IT" over and over again, and then chased Rachel around on the stage like she was participating in girl on girl wrestling match and was going for the take down.

    Why is Tina in NY again? I don't understand why they're all following each other around. Fast forward 40 years, they're all in the same retirement home, singing songs to the other residents.

    I don't even know what the point of last night's show was. I didn't enjoy it, whatever it was.

    Re: Glee

    Finally got to watch the whole show, rather than just the previews...so I don't know what the point of the radio face comment was...they already used the insulting to her looks Barbra comments... I had the luck to catch Barbra singing Miss Marmelstein in I can get it for you wholesale when it was still in Washington, DC, before she was a star, and she just took the roof off. You knew right away this was someone who would be a star, looks or no. What a voice.

    I guess the point was Rachel would have a dream come true, so maybe the others would, too--Mr. Shue got his happy family life as well. Rachel was remarkably UNselfabsorbed, asking him about the baby rather than talking about herself.

    Isn't it very bad form to skip the cast party? After all, you are both a star and a member of the cast--if you want the cast to like you, and your producer, don't dis them!

    Maybe the point of the NYC guy was to make Sue feel loveable and she'd be nicer in the future? It's hard to believe Jane Lynch pushed for that--there have already been sevearl scenes showing her being pursued by guys... maybe her contract says she has to be in X episodes so they shoehorned her in. She did fit in terms of being one of Rachel's naysayers.

    Tina came for Rachel's opening. She's attending Brown University.

    Can't stand Rachel. Schadenfreude in anticipation of Her Royal Full-of-Herself being taken down a peg or ten and slapped with a big ol' hand of reality.
