Glee Season 5 Premiere
“I personally think they should have started the season off with the dedication to Finn.” Meagan Shotwell, a “Glee” fan from Fort Sumner, New M., said that the premiere was good, but wanted a different focus.
Shotwell said that if the season had started off with the tribute to Finn, then people who have never watched the show, or heard of Monteith’s death, would know of the character.
“It would have been a good goodbye slash info thing on his death.”
Shotwell also thought that if the tribute episode would have been better for the fans that have been watching the show since its first season so that it would have been an easier goodbye.
“We have been waiting for closure for a while and the wait is just getting harder for some,” Shotwell said regarding the tribute episode.
She then said that in two weeks, for the tribute episode, “Gleeks” will finally have that closure.
“It will be a goodbye to Finn as a character and Cory as a person.”
Sierra Volz, a “Glee” fan from Branson, Mo., said that she personally loved the episode.
“I loved the morals throughout the entire episode. It was very inspiring,” she said.
Volz said the reason that it was so inspiring is because the character named Rachel Berry was a little more humble after her performance, and she did not jump at her chance to let the producers and directors choose her for their Broadway show “Funny Girl” right then. The show also continued to show its respect for the homosexual community in the episode, with Blaine’s proposal to Kurt.
Volz is also happy with the new couple on the show, Artie and Kitty.
“It really shows that no matter where you may be on the social ladder, genuine people will always disregard that,” she said.
Volz added that she can see the characters developing more, and is also anxious to see how they depict Finn’s departure.
“I think that it will have a huge effect on all of them, but especially Rachel. I’m sure that there will also be many other events throughout the season to develop each character,” she said.
Regarding the departure of Finn, Volz believes that it will have an effect on every character, because he was a huge part in most of the character’s lives, and at least a small part in other character’s lives.
“Depending on how they depict his departure, I think it will change a lot of their views on life in general. I also believe the season will have a ‘Do it for Finn’ kind of vibe,” she said.
Alyscia Morante, a “Glee” fan from Irving, Texas, thought the premiere episode was OK. She said that she did not feel like the plot line has gotten any better. She did like, however, that Rachel cannot get everything that she wants, and that the number that they did in the diner was pretty cool. She also liked how Kurt’s dad dealt with everything regarding Kurt and Blaine’s engagement.
“I love how supportive he is,” she said.
Concerning the plot, Morante said that she did not like a lot of the things that have happened after the main characters from seasons one through three went to go and move on with their lives. She said she did not like how the plot went with the new characters that were introduced last season. While she said she liked the new characters, she just had to get used to them.
“I thought Ryder’s dyslexia was an interesting turn. I feel like they kind of just used the same story line and changed bits and pieces here and there,” she said.
