Glee’s “Journey” Ends

In Television on June 6, 2010 at 11:55 pm

As much as I love this show, I can honestly say that I’m glad it’s wrapping up its first tremendously successful season. On June 8, Fox will air “Journey”, the finale for the musical drama/comedy.

Apparently, Glee is not the perfect show it’s hyped up to be. The first thirteen seasons before they went on a four-month hiatus was nothing but good, solid episodes week on week. The last eight episodes which followed had iconic moments (Power of Madonna, Theatricality) which took the song sequences to the next level. Although the tribute to Madonna, Lady Gaga and even Kiss were awe-inspiring, the writers seemed to be lost in other parts of the story. There was the much highlighted relationship between Kurt and Burt Hummell, which was fine until it got too dejavu-ish. Some heads probably turned sideways in making sense of the Puck-Mercedes and Will-Sue love mismatch – which, although was integral to the whole storyline, seemed to be a bit on the silly side.

Hopefully, the next season lets us know the other characters more – like Other Asian Mike (can he actually sing?), or that guy who’s always “just there” to play the piano, or a deeper side to Santana and (dare I say) Brittany. It also won’t hurt if they let Lea Michele take a vocal break once in a while (I loved “Laryngitis”). That girl can sing but too much of a good thing is, well, too much.

Watch a preview of Lea Michele and Cory Monteith’s duet “Faithfully” (from the finale episode “Journey”) below:
