Premiere Review: GLEE season 4 - “The New Rachel”
When I said last night in one of my tweets that the premiere of Glee season 4 will probably wow me than X Factor season 2 did, I really thought it will be. But I was wrong, it did more than just wow me! It literally gave me chills!
The search for the new Rachel. This is an issue brought to you by the one and only Jacob Ben Israel. Personally, I would’ve also given that title to Blaine, but after hearing the new comer Marley Rose (Melissa Benoist) sing "New York State of Mind" with the original Rachel Berry, I thought WOW! She’s the new Rachel!
The badasses. Jake Puckerman (Jacob Artist) had a voice that I never imagined he would possess. I understand Jake—he doesn’t want to live in the shadows of his half-brother. Brody Weston (Dean Geyer), I think, will be Finn’s biggest competition. But is Brody better than Finn? If he is, then there is that big possibility that him and Rachel can be the hot new item. Kitty (Becca Tobin) looks like a cat. She’s nothing like Quinn Fabraym in my opinion. Quinn is still the bichiest girl on Glee (not counting Santana), no doubt about that.
Kate Hudson. Is. Hot. Well? What can you expect from THE Kate Hudson? She did a great job of playing Cassandra July, the dance teacher that will make Rachel’s every waking moment a living hell. That’s it. I want MORE Kate Hudson.
The Glee Project. I wonder why Ryan Murphy is giving more spotlight to Wade “Unique” Adams (Alex Newell) than Joe Hart (Samuel Larsen). Samuel won TGP season 1 and in my opinion should continue to get more attention. If Ryan’s gonna do that, I think he should also bring back Harmony (Lindsay Pearce), give her a better storyline; and Rory Flanagan (Damian McGinty) even though I think he didn’t contribute to the improvement of Glee season 3. Let’s see if Ryan has bigger plans for TGP2 winner Blake Jenner who will play Ryder.
Next episode will be Britney 2.0! Well, that’s Britney, bitch. But I think I want more Madonna songs from Glee.
All in all, "The New Rachel" for me is the best first episode Glee had since season 2. I hope this keeps up!
