I'm just so sad the season is over! I cried and cried. They are replaying it all on Thursdays soon, so I'll watch that. But I just love this show so much!

I was almost outraged by the idea that Ms. Corcoran could just walk into the hospital to adopt Beth.

THANK YOU!

As an adoptive mom, and soon to be an adoptive mom for the second time around, I was like that is the most unrealistic portrayal of how adoption works I have ever seen!

I didn't even think that. I made the assumption that a private adoption had been arranged somewhere hidden away in the storyline. I'm adopted, so I was really hyper sensitive to all this stuff as well. I have to admit, I had a glimmer of hope that she would keep the baby when Puck was all in baby love.

It's sweet that the adoptive mother kept the name Beth.

Even the lead up to it was so stupid.

"I feel guilty for giving up Rachel, so I'm going to adopt Beth on a whim as a substitution"


As a whole, I was disappointed with the finale. They already DID Journey. I wanted awesome new songs for this.

Does anybody watch this show for realism, really?

Ha! I noticed that, too.

When I was born, my adoptive mom took me home within my first 24 hours of life. Just sayin.

I would assume there was paperwork behind that...not just her walking in and picking you out of a lineup!

I assumed she had all the adoption process going for months (or however long), b/c she mentioned to Rachel she wanted a house, dog, and family - instead of singing w/students. Since it's TV, it just happened to be the same baby.

Yeah, I mentioned that I thought it was a behind the scenes thing in an earlier post.

I want to give birth in the same length of time it takes to sing Bohemian Rhapsody. I loved Puck's face when he looked at his baby as it was coming out.....he will never forget birthcontrol again.

Hip hoorah for Emma standing up for Will. Sue did too, in her own way.

Yeah. Disturbing. And why was everyone wearing surgical gowns for a vaginal birth?

What, YOU don't break out into random perfect song and dance, with full accompaniment and no apparent practice? (We won't even get into pg girl who was leaping about on stage minutes before her water broke, and who then went on to have a birth exactly the length of 'Bohemian Rhapsody', allowing her new BFF Mercedes to accompany the birth and return in time for judging. )

I wish there'd been more Josh Groban. It didn't hardly seem worth his time to show up for this gig. Olivia Newton John, I suspect, is nothing like that in real life because her character rang completely fake.

I'm not sure I'm going to watch next season. I'm getting REALLY REALLY REALLY sick of Lea Michele. I want to hear some other voices as leads.

I won't stop watching but yes, me too. The gal who plays Santana had, like a one-phrase solo in the Journey set and I wanted more! Lea perpetually puts this impassioned, dramatic little hitch in her voice at the end of each phrase, and in small doses it's ...fine. But through-out the song? In every single song? It sounds totally affected, and it grates on my ears.

She's a wonderful actress and undeniably an amazingly talented singer, for her age. But no matter what part she does she's always going to be her, Lea Michele. It's like Liza Minnelli. You're always acutely aware of her personality when you watch her.

The character Rachel was created for Lea Michele.

Someone moved my effing cheese.

Me too! My reaction to that was something like, "Oh I didn't know that girl could sing, too!" (I've only been watching for the past ~5 episodes or so, so if she had any solos before that I missed it.)

Has anything in this show been "real" though? They bend reality all the time!

That's good to know. Because I was noticing that Jesse's school's show (Bohemian Rhapsody) seemed to be the Jesse Show.

I read something on CNN about them bringing in a "Christian Country type" singer to rival Rachel's character next season. Sounds interesting!

Oh, and a boyfriend for Kurt! That'll be a fun storyline.

When they decided to switch the episodes around some heavy editing was done to remove scenes that would have been ridiculously out of order. The problem is that it ended up leaving holes in the storyline. There are a bunch of deleted scenes on a cutting room floor somewhere that would explain everything everyone is confused about.
I only know this because I am a true "Gleek" and haunt the online spoilers
