'Glee: The Complete Second Season'
(Cory Monteith, Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, et al / 6-Disc DVD / NR / 2011 / 20th Century Fox)
Overview: With music that's arguably even better, Glee also takes a dramatic turn in its second season, mixing some tough issues into its combination of musical performance and offbeat comedy.
DVD Verdict: I was a huge fan of season 1 of Glee. Season two however revolved around kurt. I don't see the big fuss with this kid. His voice isn't that great, he's overly flamboyant and a little obnoxious. Why does everyone put him on a pedestal? I can appreciate the message the writers are try to convey with his character, but it falls flat due to his selfish annoying character traits.
Chris Colfer as a person seems like a nice guy, I just don't like his character on Glee. Since season two revolved around Kurt, and neglected many season 1 favorites like Will and Emma's romance, Shelby etc, I found this season to be annoying.
Case in point: During the episode "Furt" Finn's mother, and Kurt's father get married. During the wedding party, the glee club decides to devote a song to kurt, during his mother's wedding! WHAT???!! First of all, the moment should belong to the married couple, not Kurt. That's just one of many examples how the writers tried to make everything revolve around Kurt even when it didn't serve the story well.
The rest of the season, when it didn't revolve around kurt and the Warblers just showed character having on and off again relationships and making the same mistakes they made in the past.
Finn and Quinn rekindling their past flame was utterly ridiculous. Last season Quinn cheated of Finn with Finn's best friend Puck. Not only that, but she had Puck's baby, and lied to Finn that it was actually his. As a result, Finn vowed to keep his distance from Quinn and Puck. And rightfully so.
After all, they both betrayed him. So merely one year later, Finn decides to get back with Quinn. WHATTT!!! Is there any continuity on this show? Or did the writers completely forget last season? Is there any character development? Or did the writers just decide to press the reset button on Quinn and Finn just to make an arbitrary love triangle between Rachael, Quinn and Finn?
Amateur writing at it's finest. This show has gone down the tubes. It lost it's magic from season one and it relies on preachy gimmicky tactics to retain viewers. [DMC] This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
