Imagine Dragons? Adele? Billy Joel? That list alone was enough to entice me to watch the season opener of Glee last night, and even though I think it’s going to get really messy with Rachel’s college experience being run alongside the glee club, I have to say, I’m impressed.
The episode started out a little tediously, with the members of The New Directions all vying for Rachel’s coveted spot at the top performer. Tina’s diva persona was the worst, though they were all annoying. They were even breaking their “accept everyone” stance to sit at the cool kids’ table.
But by the time Brittany was making her old funny/stupid remarks, the kids had been put back in their place by a variety of means—one of which was their newest member, whom I adore so far. Yes! Another poor kid! It’s about time, especially given their community, which would likely yield lots of them.
