The Glee Finale or How to Accept Mediocracy and Give up on your Dreams

When I first sat down to write this I wrote about 10 pages outlining everything I liked and disliked about this episode. I guess the first 5 pages were cuss words towards RIB in reaction to the lack of Brittana kiss, but after I got over that I actually started to think about what this episode was trying to do. It was therapeutic for me, but probably wouldn't be very interesting for anyone reading this, because I assume you have all seen this episode, if you have not then exit this page immediately because it is going to so full chock full of spoilers.

Unless you are not actually interested in Glee, in which case why are you reading this? Is it because you love me? I like that, you may continue to love me, so please read on. I am beginning to think that the fact that I am going to have to wait at least 4 months, possibly more, for a Brittana kiss has actually driven me insane and for that I am sorry.

Gone But Not Forgotten: Buffy The Vampire Slayer

This is the first of what I hope to be a series of posts in honour of those great television programs that are no longer in production. It's my hope that after reading my insightful interpretations you will be inspired to run to your local DVD (or possibly Blueray if you're fancy) retailer and purchase these forgotten gems.

The first subject for interrogation is, of course, Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Contrary to what I may have said above I don't think my ideas will be inspired enough to justice to this amazing program. Therefore I have invited a friend of mine to help sway your opinions. Tidlewine (check her out at TV of The Week) will do a much better job of engaging your emotions then me (I'm pretty sure I don't actually have any, emotions that is).

Anyway read on and enjoy...

Don't be a hero: Some thoughts on “The Prom Queen”

Now I should start off by saying that I am not trying to start any kind of ship war, this is not about whether or not Kurt and Blaine should be together or anything like that. This is just a simple discussion on the merits of Blaine's storyline in this weeks Glee episode “The Prom Queen”.

Oh and spoilers ahead, so proceed at your own risk.
