If it makes you feel better, the scenes in the last half (particularly the very last scene) are pretty heart-breaking, even with the cheese.  (Hello, I’m from the eastern time zone and have already seen it. :))

It was ok. I personally am glad they didn’t mention how he died. I feel like it let us focus on his life other then his death. I feel like we all know how he died in real life, so that’s a real life lesson. But like I said in the other thread acting sucked at times, but I couldn’t imagine being in their shoes and have to try and work and focus. Let us know what you think!

I don’t understand why their needed to be a “lesson” in it. Finn Hudson the character was anti-drugs and did not dabble in them so to have Finn die of a drug overdose is silly.

I am just sad because I thought they would have a montage of his best songs, best moments, some flashbacks etc. I was preparing for a big goodbye and thought the story line got too involved.

DH said it wasn’t as heart wrenching as he thought it was going to be and I am so glad… as it is, I cried through the entire episode. It was hard to watch, knowing how they all felt about him in real life and knowing their loss is real and true.

@Treejewel19:  Okay, i didn’t write the episode. No point blasting anyone who doesn’t agree with you.

@Treejewel19:  I get what you’re saying.

 @sharontobemarried:  I don’t think she was attacking you, just explaining her point.

I think the problem was it wasn’t a memorial episode for the actor because it was a regular episode. But it wasn’t really an episode either because they didn’t include a story for the character.

It may not have been perfect but what would have been? Still, it was very moving.

anyway about the episode, i didn’t watch it yet but it’s a cop out to not make any sort of story line about it.

@Treejewel19:  I think the episode was more for everyone to mourn Cory, through the loss of Finn. Finn only died because Cory died, period. As much as it’s a TV show, that episode was for the fans and the cast, no one else. As much as it was masked as a “tribute to Finn”, it was really a tribute to Cory. They didn’t need to make up a reason for him dying. Kurt was absolutely right: it’s just one moment in his life, what matters is how he lived. They put PSAs during the commercials and they addressed it at the end, that was enough.

@Treejewel19:  I’m not sure if we’ve been watching the same show, but Glee’s story lines were never too deep, 1 season was probably the most story, and it is maily about the music.  Making a lesson would not have worked and a bit in poor taste IMO.  Every single person who watches glee know the circumstances of Cory’s death but that dosn’t mean Finn necessarily had do the same.  I thought the tribute was done very well and was also gonna quote kurts line but  @mrspinesol:  did it.

One thing I thought was odd that they didn’t start the season off with this episonde.
