'Glee' Has Officially Jumped The Shark With Over The Top Sue Sylvester — Cool It Or Get Rid Of Her!

Wed, February 16, 2011 3:29pm EST by 9 Comments

What was originally a hysterical character has become a ridiculously dramatic and entirely unamusing part of an otherwise great show — make some changes guys!

When Glee first aired there was nothing funnier than the misanthropic and outright mean Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). She hated the glee club, children, adults and pretty much every living thing — but somehow in a believable way. These days however, she is shooting people out of cannons, destroying the school and writing fake Sue-icide notes. This is ridiculous.

Now we understand Glee requires some suspension of disbelief. Young men do not burst out in song at the Gap, cheerleaders do not perform routines involving BMX riders and fire displays and no one likes vests that much (sorry Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison)). These situations however aren’t as problematic as believing Sue is going to potentially kill student Brittany (Heather Morris) by firing her out of a cannon.

Which brings us to another point — Brittany and Santana (Naya Rivera) are SAVING the show in the humor department. These two, who weren’t even series regulars until this season, are the best parts of the show. Between Brittany’s one-liners and hearing Santana exclaim things such as, “I’m from a part of town called Lima Heights adjacent,” we sometimes don’t even need Sue. Especially when she always seems to come with a ludacris plotline.

All we’re saying is tone down Sue and bring back the original sardonic woman she once was. At this point we keep getting nervous she is going to morph into some sort of extraterrestial or mythical beast and we are supposed to go along with it. It’s exhausting.

Do you agree HollywoodLifers?

Don’t all Ryan Murphy shows jump the shark prematurely. His shows quickly get weirded out. No doubt he puts personal demons and pathologies on the screen.

If you don’t like the show then don’t watch it, some people take this kind of stuff very serious (like myself), so if you wish NOT to be hated by random people all over the world you shouldn’t say so bad stuff about a great show!
by the way i’m from DK and the show is on here so it got to be shown pretty much everywhere, meening millions love it!

the show is supporting homosexuals so if you critizis it alot you might be called homofobic, and then 75% of the world will then most likely hate your gut, myself included (I’m 15 and straight)

and your blog sucks…!

Can’t wait until the show finally causes a great enough controversy that it comes crashing down. Worst piece of crap show on TV today. Absolutely nothing of redeeming quality EXCEPT for the singing.

I agree 100 percent. Jane Lynch is very talented, but it’s a shame the writers have ruined her character and made her into a buffoon. They should just write her out of the show. Her storyline is so ridiculous I just fast forward during the parts when she is on. And I LOVED her character during Season 1. It goes to show you want unmotivated writers can do to a character.

First things first: See whoopi’s comment about “Ludacris” vs. “ludicrous” and fix your spelling mistake.

Secondly: You actually may have an interesting point about “Glee.”

But I don’t think it’s nearly as bad this season as some people are saying.

It’s just that now that “Glee” is popular, people want to tear it down. Some people hate anything that is popular. Some people hate any show that treats homosexuals like human beings. Whatever, it’s still more entertaining than most shows on TV today.

I’ll keep watching as long as Heather Morris is on there.

I was coming to the comments to pull you up on your “ludacris” spelling of “ludicrous” and see someone has thankfully already done it.

Your blog is a joke.

Try having a sense of humor. Sue is a funny character.

Once again you show your ignorance.

lu·di·crous/ˈlo͞odəkrəs/ Adjective: So foolish, unreasonable, or out of place as to be amusing.

Ludacris, is an American rapper and actor

Based upon the lack of any apparent substantive purpose behind your entire line of “work”, you apparently don’t really have a purpose in life. Is it really too much to ask then for you to at least do the meaningless “work” that you do, properly?
