    I have a love-hate thing with Rachel. Most times I hate her because she reminds me so much of my awful qualities and it annoys me that she seems to sing all the frigging time, yes I know her voice is amazing but it just annoys me that she loves taking over EVERYTHING (Papa Can You Hear Me? in Grilled Cheezus was my biggest I-want-to-punch-you moment ever, if you can believe it...) but I'm starting to love her now because she's mellowing and she's not a narcissistic annoyance 100% of the time anymore.
    100% agree with you here! In most of the group songs all you hear is her voice above the rest of them and even my mum agrees aswell, and she doesn't even really watch it (which I think is partly due to Rachel taking over all the songs! :p:)
    I can't remember the performace of Papa Can You Hear Me? but I really hated her voice during the first ND performance of Don't Stop Believing. It was far too high and irritating.

    Thank God someone agrees with me. If I'm being entirely honest, I didn't like Lea's voice for ages as Rachel, and I REALLY didn't like her voice in Spring Awakening and that's very different from her 'Rachel' voice. She has a fantastic belt, it's true but I'm easily bored! Probably why I liked the Warbler intervention so much haha! It's a credit to Lea that she manages to make Rachel sort of endearing at times but I hate the faux emotion in all of Rachel's songs and the way she acts like she's crying all the time. I think Lea Michele is a fantastic actress so I know all of that is Rachel but damn, if I don't want to hurt someone when Rachel sings her 10th billionth song that sounds exactly the same as all the others...

    I'm sorry, guys! I know pretty much everyone in the entire world loves her but I get bored during the ballads and the belting gets old very quickly. I don't know who else I'd rather sing but I didn't like how the 'group' songs become Rachel/Finn songs. OS spoiler

    Rachel basically won sectionals for them. She didn't need to take lead for Loser Like Me and how on Earth did Get it Right qualify when only 3 singers were on stage?
    Stuff like that annoys me. Mr Schue totally enables it though but then he also lets the group bully her which is horrible. Mr Schue sucks, basically! Isn't show choir about everyone and not one person getting the bulk of the solos for two years straight? Oh and Papa Can You Hear Me annoyed me because she was singing to KURT's dad when he was in hospital. And all I could think is, yeah it's your friend's dad but you have no reason to sing to him when you're probably not even close to him. Let his SON sing to him! But then we got I Wanna Hold Your Hand so...
    Don't Stop Believing is the most annoying Glee song ever. I have a soft spot for it because it was the first hit but I couldn't even sit through it when it aired because the singing annoyed me! :facepalm:

    I know I sound like a right complainer and I do honestly adore Glee but I get annoyed by Rachel's overuse when there are other people who hardly sing like Mercedes and Tina and Santana with amazing voices. I think it's getting better now though...

    I think the thing in bold is a little bit of an understatement :p: ...although it is nice to have a change and Blaine/Darren Criss is a really good singer.

    I'm not a Rachel hater, but I don't love her either. Lea does play her so well though I've started liking her more recently though after she sang Need You Now because her voice was soft and mellow

    I *gasp* totally agree with you that her voice is overused, especially now we're into the second season and have heard more of other voices which can more than hold their own (Santana especially) but even in the first it annoyed me that she got to sing so much because a) every solo should have been Kurt's and b) every solo should have been Kurt's. It also means that she's singing songs not always suited to her voice and it takes the shine of those that do really suit her as you're so fed up by the time they come around. As much as I love Rachel and Lea Michele I skip through a lot of her songs when rewatching episodes. I do not skip through Kurt's. I love Kurt. I understand why they used her a lot at first, when they started the series they wanted a male and female lead probably to appeal to a mass audience and they wanted definite lead vocalists but as the show is about a Glee club and the other characters have proved so popular they really need to start giving other people a chance (apparently she's not in episode 18 much as she was filming a movie at the time). Sanatana and Mercedes' duet was especially good I thought, plus they've got Blaine (who I can only hope gets more as
    Spoiler:

    he transfers to be with his boyfriend
    and Kurt (who needs to get more show tunes).

    My mum hates the character of Rachel and she always goes on about how annoying the actress is and I have to remind her that that's her character and not Lea :rofl: she's supposed to be that irritating.

    Bet I know which scenes...
    I think I need more help than you, I've been watching bits of OS everyday since it aired... and if not that, I've been watching Darren songs on youtube and falling more in love with him (and Joe Walker) and reading lots of fanfic to pass the time... I give up on myself, I really do! I've been obsessed with things before (*ahem*) but never this much!


    I have a love-hate thing with Rachel. Most times I hate her because she reminds me so much of my awful qualities and it annoys me that she seems to sing all the frigging time, yes I know her voice is amazing but it just annoys me that she loves taking over EVERYTHING (Papa Can You Hear Me? in Grilled Cheezus was my biggest I-want-to-punch-you moment ever, if you can believe it...) but I'm starting to love her now because she's mellowing and she's not a narcissistic annoyance 100% of the time anymore.

    Scary!Quinn! mwhahhaha!
    I think Finn should be single too... I actually think most of ND should be! The relationship musical chair thing drives me a bit mad.



    Why? *is genuinely confused*
    I refuse to believe I'm that predictable oh and I forgot to put in my post up there, Rachel shouldn't sing so much in competition, it irritates me that it's supposed to be show choir. At least with the Warblers everyone's on stage even if it's just doowapping and dancing around doing hand actions.

    If I don't start doing anything else I'm going to start thinking I am in the Glee club, I can already feel myself wanting to get up and go to McKinley on a morning I've made a start, this morning I was reading and managed not to come on the internet until now. I hope I didn't miss any spoilers.

    You and a friend will enjoy lunch in Los Angeles with Darren Criss, Blaine from the cast of GLEE!

    Darren Criss is a passionate actor/musician/songwriter who has—in the course of one year—gone from YouTube sensation to a 4-time Billboard charting musician and composer to joining the cast of FOX's Emmy® Award-winning series Glee. He currently stars as Blaine Anderson, a charismatic and openly-gay student from a rival glee club, the Dalton Academy Warblers. Criss’ breakout performance of Katy Perry's “Teenage Dream” in his first episode set a milestone for Glee, debuting at #1 on Billboard for the first time in the show’s history and selling over 200,000 tracks in its first week.

    Quickly emerging as one the most promising actors and musicians of his generation, Criss made his television debut in 2009 as Josh Burton on ABC’s Eastwick, with Rebecca Romijn, Lindsay Price and Jaime Ray Newman, and also appeared in CBS’ Cold Case.

    Hi guys! I haven't had internet for the past days so I'm reading all of this with a delay - but how AMAZING was the new promo??! :woo: I honestly don't know how I'll get through next week, I need new episodes now! And I think that the best bit (and I'm sure we all agree on what the best bit was ) will be for the episode airing on the 26th. Three weeks never felt like such a lifetime!

    I tried to take a break from Glee and watched some other films, listened to different music, but it didn't work :no: I'm just too obsessed. Who was I before I watched Glee??

    It's called night of neglect and there was a picture tweeted from set when they were filming it with Darren in that coat, plus it looks like it's a night so we're thinking that's from there. BTW is the episode after though.


    I've tried taking a break too, it lasts about an hour then I'm back. I don't even know how I used to exist to be honest! I know the time will pass quicker if I find something to do and distract myself but I can't. It's addictive, I think I need therapy (a bit like Mr.Schue for his vest wearing ).

    they have shown things in promos before that have been edited out of episodes-one for OS showed Rachel and Quinn on a bed together (where Rachel wrote her song-just sitting together) and fans of them went wild then it wasn't in the episode. I think this is too big though-unless they're doing it on purpose to get some fun out of all our reactions that would be awful though-I need Blaine to defend his boyfriend :love: I watched it so many times yesterday-even in slow motion :rofl:


    I don't know how I'll live over the summer. I'll be a wreck! I suspect it'll be a 4/5 month break from the end of May to September/October.
