I'm totally Mrs. Kravitzing here, but I'm so damn curious to find out what, exactly, TPTB were trying to accomplish this year. If they wanted to set up a Degrassiesqe Glee Factory where new students were continuously introduced into the narrative, why was virtually every single new character a re-hash of a character that already existed? What was the point?
Were TPTB just pissed at Fox for not greenlighting their separate NY-only series and set about making the dreckiest dreck of a series ever? Did TPTB not actually realize that all of the new characters were retreads? Do they think Glee is good? Were TPTB punishing Chis Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith for GraduationGate? Were the show runners prohibited from talking to the writers and the editors and the music people? Were they all trying to ruin each other?
I want the True Hollywood Story!
I'm not one who ever thought the series was good. I watched the first episode and thought Rachel was insufferable, Shue was an idiot, and Finn too stupid to live so I checked out. I only checked back in because a friend of mine, along with her kids, really loved it and wanted me to give it another chance. I did and became enamored of Kurt. I've only ever watched to see what Chris Colfer will do with a scene or a song, and even though I love him to death, I never thought the show was particularly well written or well plotted. In fact, I pretty much thought RIB were passively aggressively trying to force their vision of the show over the other two, thereby making a huge mess of the entire process.
But this season was just so so so spectacularly bad. I feel like I could walk in to any middle school in the USA, point randomly at 20 students and 14 of them could plot a better television season than Season 4 of Glee.
I just want to know why it's so bad! And if they understand that it's so bad! And if they laugh at the truckful of money Fox pays them for something so awful! Is this Office Space for TV? How bad would it have to get for Fox to pull the plug? Or will they just keep giving Ryan Murphy more and more and more spaces on their schedule?
