10 Reasons Glee Fans Hate Glee

10. Continuity? What Continuity? What€™s Character Development?

Arguably Glee€™s biggest flaw €“ and certainly the one most pointed out by viewers, is the writers inability to conceive that what happened a season ago still counts. Or perhaps they€™ve simply forgotten or never watched the episodes in the first place €“ it would certainly seem that way! I€™ve mentioned some examples already €“ Quinn€™s erased character development and Will€™s teaching skills, but have a few more: Is Rachel the driven, talented girl with burning ambitions for stardom or a silly girl devoted to a high school marriage and unable to comprehend the idea of applying to a backup college? Who knows? Finn goes from being a reasonably good guy to a sore victim who outs lesbian Santana, whom he later claims means a lot to him despite previously always telling everybody else she meant nothing. Puck was revealed to have a vasectomy in season two but said nothing of it when Quinn begged him to impregnate her again. Brittany€™s transformed from a ditzy cheerleader to a child in a teen€™s body with a severe learning disability. I don€™t even know who the Blaine character is €“ introduced as a seemingly older, suave mentor to Kurt who had suffered from bullying and gay bashing in the past, it€™s later revealed in season three he is in fact younger than half the glee club and from there his character just goes all over the place. I€™m only scraping the iceberg. I wish I could say I listed all of Glee€™s problems. This started as a list of five and I could make it a list of twenty. The show everyone either adored or avoided is now something nobody really thinks about anymore. Ratings and music sales have been in the decline accordingly. It€™s easy to see why €“ Glee is, at best, a musical drama with some interesting if mostly ignored characters, and at worst an incomprehensible mess with a soundtrack. Still, there are reasons fans still stay watch it and reasons why they write out exceedingly long lists of all the things they wish would change.
