Glee’s ‘Kurt’ is Getting a Boyfriend?

16 Oct

Apparently so.  I’m probably the only person in the country who thinks that Glee is definitely heading in a propagandistic direction.  For no reason, they’re really starting to ruin what last year was a great show.  I don’t watch Glee because I want to see divergent lifestyles promoted.  I watch it because it’s funny and engaging.  Now, it’s just getting sad.  Lately every episode has circulated around Kurt’s sexuality.

I guess my days of watching are soon to be over.  Danggit.

      yes but REALLY disappointed in it too. house has lost his edge and his hooking up with kuddy (or whatever it is) is utterly idiotic. it’s becoming just boring. why all these shows think we want to watch hooking up escapes me. characters dont always have to be sexualized in order for them to be interesting.

    I still haven’t begun season 6, so I’m way behind. I did see the promo for the new season and saw House and Cuddy hooking up, so that’s spoiled. Like you, sexualizing characters usually detracts from the story. Of course, House’s exploits in that arena are well known, but I am not sure how I feel about him and Cuddy. We’ll see…

    While I have not watched more than few minutes of Glee, I really like interesting character driven shows. But, please, tone down the sex stuff.

    Help! A homosexual relationship on your favourite soapy! You know what that means – the sliding scale and there will be a marriage with somebody’s pet fish, they’ll start hugging trees and having sexual intercourse with geese and someone will open a porn shop. Don’t expose yourself to the depravity of humanity. I don’t have TV – give it to charity and spend more time smelling the roses, strolling through forests, manicuring the lawn… anything natural but not human and depraved.

    I’ve never seen House but what’s wrong with Cuddy? Humans are sexual so human characters are going to have relationships unless you want them all to be hermits. Maybe House and Cuddy will get married. Will that make it all right? Or is Cuddy OMG male? I don’t know why more people don’t just give up tv. It’s much nicer having less to moan about.

      whats wrong with cuddy and house hooking up is that the show has become uninteresting because of it.

    Here’s what I find interesting about House and the discussion above.

    Basically the show is the same–as unfortunately are the teasers “Do not miss tonight’s shocking episode, with a surprise ending so shocking, that it’s shocking–person sick, House mean to those around him, someone says or does something innocuous which jogs his diagnostic brain into a correct diagnosis… which is shocking.

    However, the House/Cuddy angle has been in the show for a long, long time. So while it was longed for sexuality, repressed and unrealized, it was interesting, but when it is consummated, the show becomes boring.

    Almost every show that I have watched, its the wanting is interesting. The dance is exciting, but once the deed has been done, the characters slip into boredom.

    In regard to Pooh’s bothering to watch TV soapies, said Rabbit, “I don’t see much sense in that.” “No,” said Pooh humbly, “there isn’t. But there was going to be when I began it. It’s just that something happened to it along the way”. Pooh wisely threw away his TV and played Pooh sticks instead. You see the plot has to go somewhere so it ends in sex. It just goes that way like everything else 🙂

    You’re not alone in finding this season preachy. My wife and I agree. Last season, Glee was thoughtful. Now it’s a tad pathetic.

    Oh well, more time for reading snarky blogs.

    It does suck how shows get ruined so quickly. I stopped watching house when he got the stupid new team and now he is with Cuddy? It’s just not the same. And even though I do love Kurt, the fact he’s basically the main character now because of his sexuality and his hard life is getting annoying. It’s a comedy, we’re not meant to be upset over a character.

    I watched the first episode of Glee this season to see what all the fuss was about. I finally had enough after two of the characters tried to feed cakes made from dog poo to what appeared to be a man playing a lesbian.

    I quite agree with you on this one, Rabbi. Glee has become very preachy and with only one sermon topic: Kurt being gay is good, and if you don’t Enthusiasticly support him then you are Evil and a Bigot.
    Kurt is free to equate God with a dwarf in a teapot or the flying spaghetti monsters but no critisim is allowed toward him.
    I agree on House as well. The edgy OMG he did NOT say/do that was what made the show interesting! Let’s face it, like Scooby Doo, House has only one plot with interchangeable characters.
