It seems like it was only just yesterday when the New Directions alums banded together to bring glee to New York City. In Glee‘s Season 5 finale, “The Untitled Rachel Berry Project”, we find the rising stars going their separate ways once again as their dreams take them to places they never imagined.
Chris Colfer, the Golden Globe award-winning actor (for Glee), New York Times best-selling author (for The Land of Stories book series), and film writer/producer (Struck By Lightning) can now add yet another impressive achievement to his rapidly-growing resume – television screenwriter.
So here’s what you missed this month on Glee… Since saying so long and farewell to the New Directions Glee Club, the Lima guys (Blaine, Sam, and Artie) plus Mercedes have joined their friends Rachel, Kurt, and Santana in the city that never sleeps – New York City! The permanent switch in scenery (for the remainder of Season 5, anyway) was long overdue, and the change has lead to more mature storylines (such as exploring the struggles between balancing your career aspirations with your personal relationships, with much less backstabbing and cheating as catalysts for conflict thankyouverymuch) and stronger musical numbers (including more Broadway-esque songs, naturally) for this talented bunch. And of course, I can never get enough of the gratuitous glory shots of my favourite city on planet Earth. Already, the Gleeks’ adventures in the Big Apple have lead to some major memorable moments…
Glee said goodbye to McKinley High with a special two-part celebration of their 100th episode milestone. Original cast members returned for a bittersweet reunion to relive their fond memories of the New Directions show choir by revisiting and remixing their most popular performances (as voted upon by fans of the show).
Tonight, Glee returned back to primetime with their first new episode of 2014. For these talented aspiring artists, ambition, jealousy, and insecurity rose to an all-time high, pitting friends against friends, Frenemies style. As the old saying goes, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer”.
