Tuesday on TV: Watching 'Glee' is just sad these days

First Published      Last Updated Apr 01 2014 03:36 pm

Last week's episode of Glee (7 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13) made me really, really sad.

Not that it was a bad episode. It was actually better than a lot of what we've seen the last few, well, years. And the big farewell for Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) - complete with a flash-back-to-the-beginning rendition of "Don't Stop Believin'" - was actually quite good.

Which is why it made me sad. Because it reminded me that "Glee" used to be good. And that's getting harder and harder to remember.

The show is finally doing what might have helped had it happened a couple of seasons ago. Pretty much everybody (other than Mr. Schuester) is moving to New York, and the show will be focused pretty much exclusively there.

It's kind of too late, however. This is a show that has forgotten what made it good - the enthusiasm, the fun - and is so far gone it's difficult to imagine that it can recover creatively.
