‘Glee’ Regains Its Voice In Touching Series Finale (Spoilers)

20 March 2015 11:09 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Let’s face it, “Glee” has been running on fumes for several seasons, making its two-hour finale more a subject of curiosity than the emotional event it would have been except for the hardiest “Gleeks.” Nor did this season’s buildup inspire much confidence, including such out-there moments as Sue Sylvester’s “Saw” homage and the combination of the McKinley High glee bunch with the rival Warblers, creating a giant if colorless super-team. Still, the big finish was everything it should have been, a sweet remembrance of what initially made the show take off. For a night, anyway, the series regained its voice.

Much of that can be attributed to the first hour (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), which flashed back to the formation of the Glee club in 2009, recalling such elements as Kurt (Chris Colfer) struggling to come out to his dad and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) still faking a stutter. »

‘Glee’ May Suck Now, But It Changed the Goddamn World

20 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

We know it’s hard to believe, but the last episode of Glee ~*eVeR*~ airs tonight. The New Directions have given us an incredible six years of singing, dancing, and awkward teen sexual tension, but it’s time for them to leave the show choir room for good. Admittedly, the most recent seasons of Glee haven’t been that great (this season especially, with its self-referencing jokes and out-of-control fat-shaming). However, we can’t let Ryan Murphy’s inability to craft a third act stop us from honoring Glee. When it was good, it was really fucking good. And, more importantly, it changed culture forever.

From putting gay teens on primetime to introducing us to living Ken doll/actual sex god Darren CrissGlee wasn’t afraid to go where television had never been before. It broke racial, sexual, and gender boundaries — not to mention it brought the musical back in a big way. »

Tonight we will be saying good-bye to the New Directions and the rest of the students of McKinley High School. Glee has made us laugh and cry for six seasons, but it had to end sometime. Over the years, we have met many different characters. Some of them are very memorable like Lea Michele’s Rachel Berry, who has been the centerpiece of Glee since it began airing back in 2009. Other cast members who have been around all six seasons include Chris Colfer as Kurt Hummel, Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester, and Matthew Morrison as Will Schuster. Each season of Glee has also featured some less memorable characters. Over the last couple of weeks, we at TVOvermind have taken a look back at those lesser known characters. Last week, we discussed Season 2. If you have not yet checked out the article yet, it can be viewed by clicking here. This week, »

The cast of Glee has sung Madonna. They’ve sung Beyonce. They’ve sung everything from Fleetwood Mac to Katy Perry. Yet, after six seasons and hundreds of musical performances, there are still some songs they wish they could’ve recorded.

While Jane Lynch, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Heather Morris, Amber Riley, Darren Criss, Dot-Marie Jones, Mark Salling, and Chord Overstreet all spent the show’s tear-filled PaleyFest farewell panel reminiscing on the past six years, they took some on the red carpet prior to dream up the performances that could’ve been.

“Every time I would hear a good song, I’d be like, ‘Oh I wish I could do this on Glee,” answered Salling. “I never got to do one I wanted either. I wanted to do a Radiohead song, but that I guess it didn’t really fit,” he said.
