Curious about your thoughts/comments regarding the Glee episode so far.
At this point it is as I have suspected, glossed over with music and no hard hitting stuff that could actually teach a lesson to someone. I am hoping it gets a bit more deep.

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.

@MissTatas: This. Exactly.

@sharontobemarried: Because as one news writer put it…it is a TV show. The episode that aired tonight was basicaly a memorial for someone who died without any information, knowledge or depth of story line into what happened. While this may be all well and good for a musical dedication on tv (IE; Michael Jackson) it is NOT a tv show. There was no plot, no depth, no explanation and no continuation of the story. I would think that in some way to join together what happened in real life and to make it relevant to Glee they might have made it into a moment to teach a lesson, they didn’t. So now at this point all I can do is hope that the episode on November 7th continues the story in a relevant fashion versus ignoring the details…whatever they decide they should be.
And to be honest to have a character die for no reason or explanation and then spend an hour mourning him on a tv show is silly.

@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.

@sharontobemarried: Ugh, okay welcome to the internet. I didn’t blast you, not one bit. Considering this was my thread I do beileve I have every right to discuss my opinion.
@AlwaysSunny: Thanks! Not at all, my goodness.
And yes you got my point, it was confusing watching because it did’t seem to fit anything really. Beautiful yes absolutely but still very confusing.
I think regardless of what they did it is sad and unfortunate situation, there isn’t any good solution really. 🙁

@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.
