So going into Season 4, Glee had two options. It could continue down its path of destruction and run the show into the ground. Or it could try its hardest to balance its ever growing cast by giving enough time to each story, actually have the storylines last longer than an episode, and try to bring back the energy of its first two seasons. While it is definitely having some growing pains, I am happy to say that Glee is at least trying, and I applaud it.
So what does all of this mean? Basically, Glee still faces some of the consistency issues that it has always faced, and it still demands that its viewers and fans suspend disbelief. But after last season's trainwreck, it is nice to see that the actors and characters we love are still committed to their stories, and the show itself. It is also nice to see the writers trying to balance all of the different storylines, while advancing characters week to week. Glee isn't perfect, it never was for that matter. But if its creators continue to work hard, and its cast remains dedicated, I think Season 4 can be a good one. For now, its off to a pretty good start.
