Finale Thoughts

- "Glee" Here's the thing about "Glee"- it's so flawed, and has so many obvious things wrong with its writing and plotting, but I just don't care. I love the characters and love the songs, and the finale was the show at the top of its game, especially the sublime "Bohemian Rhapsody" sequence, the best use of the Queen classic in pop culture since "Wayne's World."

The other interesting thing is that everyone expects "Glee" to go off the rails sooner rather than later. It's certainly very possible, but I'll still be watching. It's also hard to believe, mostly due to its weird schedule, that this was just the first season. "Glee" feels like it's on about Season 3.

- "Justified" I've been outspoken about my love for this show- great characters and acting, amazing writing, and a succession of standout one-off episodes with huge guest performances. But the finale was sort of a disappointment, as it just sort of all led to a shootout when it could have been a lot better. Oh well, it was still an A season, and I can't wait for the second.

I thought "Glee" would be right up my alley as a show, and even liked the pilot, despite them ripping off Election like 6 times.

So I watched the first 4-5 episodes on Hulu. Once the football team danced to "Single Ladies," I switched it off, never to return.
