I love Glee like a teenager. I think Darren Criss is one of the most talented people around.
What can I say, anon? Hope springs eternal.
What gives me hope in this instance (aside from the sheer strength of my optimism) is that the conflict we’ve seen in the last couple of episodes has been, in my opinion, completely realistic and stemming from THE CHARACTERS THEMSELVES. It’s drama and angst, yes, but I believe it based on these (fictional) people I have come to know and love. It doesn’t feel like manufactured drama for its own sake, it feels like two young people fumbling as they try to grow up. The things they’re struggling with aren’t generic, they’re specific to each of their strengths and weaknesses and, yes, core wounds.
Look, I’ve been watching the same show as you have for the last five years. I’m fully aware that the writers could kick us in the collective shins and run away cackling.
But I’m still here, trusting in the long game of the story. I have faith in the happy ending. Am I going to want to scream and rip my hair out and throw things at the TV between now and then? It’s entirely possible. Alas, I still don’t have any say in how the show is written.
But god, when it gets it right, it gets it SO SO SO right.
Love everything about this.
