THE PLOT THUS FAR
Season Three of the electrifying, award-winning series finds the Gleeks headed for the Nationals – and graduation! As younger members join New Directions, others are about to begin exciting, if uncertain, lives outside it. Featuring some of television’s most enthralling song and dance numbers, including memorable hits from the legendary Michael Jackson, Glee continues to earn its place in the hearts of viewers around the world.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Glee” hit a wall so hard in its third season that I’m still in shock that it got renewed. We’ve had other series extend their life beyond what was necessary. However, “Glee” seems to want to limp their characters into graduation. While we know that the show will continue its focus on Kurt and Rachel far past graduation, one has to wonder what’s left. How many more roads and covers can a Glee club go down before Ryan Murphy pulls the plug? Plus, when are we going to get that inevitable crossover with “American Horror Story”?
Every episode pushes and pulls the plot to suit that particular episode. The characters aren’t likable. What motivated them is as yet not understood, neither can the audience understand how they call connect together. Besides dedicated fans to the actors, I doubt if anyone likes the show. The songs are just smoke and mirrors to cover up a weak script, story and characters. The way they keep adding new characters and new plot twists and obstacles seem a desperate way to keep the drama alive. Speaking of this bullshit, how come Quinn can’t stay crippled for a full season? I guess that being pretty and blonde works better than stem cells, as her ass was out of her chair at the moment of first convenience.
The Blu-Ray comes with deleted scenes, featurettes, musical jukebox and a farewell to the cast members that are graduating. The A/V Quality is strong as usual, with a boombastic DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track. The 1080p transfer is really strong with clarity unmatched. However, I found that outside of the musical numbers…the show continued its lack of back channel action for the dramatic elements. That being said, I can only recommend a purchase to fans. Everyone else should pass on this dying show.
