People who call Darren “Ryan’s precious snowflake” need a reality check, because Darren’s character on Glee was butchered like no other. Blaine was first introduced as this charming,confident guy with the occasional silliness and an interesting backstory and later he was turned into this insecure,whinny mess whose only goal in life was to marry Kurt. Does any of these say “producer’s snowflake”? And when Darren was asked what he wanted for his character in season 6, he said all he wanted was a storyline that made sense. And what did he get? A love story with Karofsky. Does that scream “special treatment’? So he got a lot of songs, or screen time, so what? That was because people liked Darren, so Ryan Murphy gave them more Darren, that is all…
Here’s to actors of color who will sign up for future Ryan Murphy’s projects.
I hope they treat you better than they treated Amber.
I hope they treat you better than they treated Jenna.
I hope they treat you better than they treated Alex.
I hope your characters don’t become targets to offensive jokes.
I hope your characters get storylines they deserve.
I hope you and your characters are treated with respect.
I hope you never have to deal with people like glee fans.
And I really hope the paycheck is worth it.
I feel like they ruined Quinn. Yeah the storyline about her getting knocked up and wanting finn back and then Beth all made sense but then in S4 she was a slut and I felt like that all came from off screen drama with Ryan.
Bless Chris Colfer for liking pics on Instagram while ignoring the awfulness that is Blee and avoiding talking about or posting about toxic bull shit Glee and Toxic Klaine Kledding, I feel you hun, I am sad and pissed off for Kurt's awful ending too
And fuck you RIB for not giving Chris not even one fucking thing he asked for Kurt to have before Glee ends, you destroyed Kurt’s journey an disrespected Chris and all his hard work and effort he put in Kurt for some piece of shit ship and actor, Fuck. You.
Hey I've just started watching glee and I saw your post on Santana's rant to kurt in S6 and I just want to say that I'm completely disgusted and appalled by the fact that everyone treats it like a mere joke and not the toxic lashing out from the writers that it is really is. Not to mention how that goes against the very ideals and values that the show preaches since season 1. I'm currently on season 3 and it's kinda depressing to get a glimpse of the degradation of writing quality in store sigh
The writing for Glee is, unfortunately, pretty abysmal. Especially after season three when Ryan Murphy totally screwed the pooch. There were some shining moments (and we could always count on good acting from Chris, Matt, Jane, Naya and to a lesser degree Lea) to overcome the lousy writing and trite storylines but yeah… it’s hard to get past just how bad Glee got and a lot of us stayed watching out of a desire to support our favorite actors. As much as I rag on Darren’s crap acting and how Rachel was transformed midway through season 4 into Lea Michele, no one was served well.
Santana’s rant (in Jagged Little Pill) was especially had to swallow (no pun intended) because it totally destroyed all of the character development that Santana earned in six seasons. She had gone from a petty bully to one that was opening herself up to love and friendships. She put herself out there for Rachel (who went on to stab her in the back) and Kurt and felt absolutely guilt stricken over how she’d treated Finn while he was alive. She had grown so much and to see her yanked all the way back to her season one behavior, she she was cruel and cutting and didn’t care about anyone else… that was very hard to take.
And it wasn’t hard to see that the showrunners were not only abusing Santana’s character, but taking out their frustrations on Chris personally by using Santana as a mouthpiece to mock the things that not only Kurt was known for, but Chris himself. It was a very shitty thing to do to both actors and their characters (and leaves no surprise that neither Chris nor Naya plan to work with Ryan Murphy again anytime in the foreseeable future).
isn’t it strange that Ryan Murphy wrote Quinn & Santana as characters that were meant to be hated, but they ended up being loved by the fans?
And he wrote Blaine as a character to be loved by the fans, but he ended up being hated?
All it means is that writing is just a part of it, its the choices the actors make that slowly create dimensions to the characters…I’m just going to put it out there that all of Darren’s acting choices so far have turned Blaine into a douchey annoying asshat.
Well it’s either that or Ryan Murphy is that bad a writer..but seeing as he wrote AHS, he can’t be that bad at his job…
No matter who you are or who you are with, You don’t give up your 1st string. Maybe your 3rd string. Maybe. This plot is so dumb. NO ONE DOES THAT.
Hell even Abraham Q’ed the Lordt when he said sacrifice Issac.
It makes NO SENSE why Mercedes would “give” Sam to Rachel. I don’t give a fuck who you are. Mercedes wouldn’t “give” the man she lived with, cooked for did laundry for, taught how to pay bills and gave a little something something too. Because your “friend” needs her heart fixed.
This shit is why your ratings are sinking faster than the Titanic.
