Friday night marked the end of the sixth and final season of Glee.
A show that started off strong, with great stories and songs, fell apart in recent years, as the writers and creators moved on to other projects (American Horror Stories, etc.) and left this to fail.
But Friday night showed what the show could’ve been had they kept the glory of the early seasons flowing throughout.
With a great flashback episode to 2009 showing how everyone came to join the glee club, as well as some auditions to the current stars, the two-hour finale was off to a great start.
With keeping spoilers to a minimum, the second episode flashed forward 5 (or more) years to show where our main cast ends up, and it left fans wanting more of this great group.
Pushing aside political points and drama the Directors/Producers put together one final performance with all the characters the fans have grown to love/hate coming together and singing “I Lived” by OneRepublic.
With every broken bone, I swear I lived.
And as the final curtain came down during the dedication of the Finn Hudson Auditorium, they zoomed in on one final plaque with a quote on it, reminding the fans why they watched, and the creators why they created it, saying:
See the world not as it is, but as it should be.
The potential was there for Glee in the beginning and the very end…it’s a shame the middle had to be so painful.
