Barbra Streisand and Sunset Blvd in one episode. Why am I not happier?

Welcome back to the Kurt Show :glare:

I'm not sure why I bother watching this show :P I only like Emma, Sue and Beiste. And (some of) the songs. Ok, they're the reason I watch the show :D

So. Glee last night. I thought it was pretty good. Definitely didn't live up to my ridiculously high expectations, but thats ok. Anyways. As far as songs/performances goes, it was excellent. Somewhere only we know was phenomenal. I wish BTW performance was a little longer since they did cut out a large part of the song. Santana (by far, one of my FAVORITE characters along with Brit and Mercedes) was hilarious. It didn't even feel like a 90 minute episode, it seemed normal. But nonetheless, it was a good episode and of course I am glad that Kurt is back haha.

You guys disappointed much? D:

I actually thought it was a pretty good episode. I think my only complaint is how Born This Way wasn't an actual cover, but just Gaga being played over a stereo or something /: Though I did love the dance for the song.
I'm kind of neutral on the lack of Sue in this one.

Actually, I think I might have another complaint; I hated how Burt just let Kurt back to McKinley even after complaining about how much money was spent (He already spent the Lost guest star hotel honeymoon money on Kurt's enrollment, that money isn't coming back by transferring out...After spending that kind of money, my kid is staying there!) and Karofsky's former threats. Even if Karofsky appears to have turned a new leaf, I'd still be wary...Nice to see Daniel Roebuck again though :D

Quinn's story was kind of stupid, but it was worth it for Lauren to interact with another character. Lauren has felt too limited for too long, so I've enjoyed her recent development with Mercedes and Quinn. And I liked how Finn accepted her, even though I think it'll lead to him getting back with Rachel.

The goodbye scene to Kurt from the Warblers was great. In a way, I'm kind of glad Kurt's back at McKinley. We'll get to see more of his eye-popping outfits (I seriously wish real teens dressed with as much fashion as the cast on Glee -___-). I also loved the mall scene.

I'm rather surprised no one here seemed to like the episode....

Well, I just don't like many of the cast... pretty much none of the kids now, not Will. I love Beiste and Sue though they weren't in it. Emma was good.

I actually really like 'Somewhere Only We Go' (and a lot of the Warbler songs) but I hate how it was all about Kurt. His song was long and dull. I can't even remember much of BTW.

And it was bullcrap hyping it as a 90 minute episode when in reality it was only 56 :x

I don't blame you for not liking most of the characters. I liked pretty much all of them come their introduction, but too many characters are severely over saturated, which ruins the majority of the cast. Finn, Quinn, Kurt, Rachel, Puck, Blaine, Sam, and Lauren seem to be the main culprits right about now. Granted, I am a huge Kurt fan, but I'm starting to feel that the show has been revolving around only him lately. Save for Kurt, the lesser-used characters seem to be getting used a little over the course of the seasons final trimester. I'm happy about that. And it looks like Blaine might be gone for the rest of this year, and Sam is finally learning how to stay in the background, like a good guest star.
I ordinarily like Sue a lot, but she's become...different lately. She just isn't Sue anymore. Beiste has grown on me, I'd like to see a bit more of her. I kind of want Will to end up with her in the long run. Emma is one of my favorites. :wub: She's been sooo neglected in season 2 D,: I like her with Will, but at this point, I feel they don't deserve each other anymore. Now, I want her back with Carl.

I've enjoyed the Warbler's songs, especially the one from this episode, but their presentations feel too...perfect...
The whole bunch of those characters are all essentially perfect, and it annoys me. Their voices, dances, outfits, hair, looks, personalities, etc. are all flawless. They're too much and too little at the same time. And I hate how only Blaine gets lead vocals for their group. I realize we don't have time to develop an entire second group of Gleeks, but a character doesn't need to be pivotal to the plot in order to get some none-backing vocals in...

And yeah, I was annoyed at how without commercials, it was hardly 10 minutes longer than the usual episode. But I guess any extra time is better than no extra time. /:
