So does Ryan Murphy just accept that Darren Criss can't act?
Watching the Glee tribute last night just reminded me that whenever it comes to super dramatic scenes he tosses his golden boy aside.
In their stupid school shooting episode, no Blaine, in the Finn died episode, no Blaine. Even when he and Kurt broke up his big moment was a song.
They give him cutsey and romantic plots but it seems even Ryan Murphy can see past his crush and accept that the dude can't really carry serious drama.
Glee is a fluffy show with cute guys and girls. They are not expected to act. Why do you think they spent the hour singing last night ? Furthermore, Murphy couldn't write good drama even if his life depended on it. It doesn't take talent to write in a script 'and then he sings to an empty chair. The gang is all sad and they rock back and forth'. He did not touch the reason for Finn's death because it would have meant that a real script would have been necessary. Let the viewer imagine what he wants. After all, we have pretty hair and we hold hands when we sing together. Yesterday all my trouble seems so far away...
They actually sang Yesterday? Gag.

I'm sure Ryan's not thinking about Darren's acting skills when he's sucking Darren's cock, or licking Darren's hairy hole.
I'm watching it now. Very sad.
No Quinn Febrey.
Yea where was Quinn
Well, he fakes orgasms quite well. That's a kind of acting, isn't it?
Ah R6 yeah just watching it now - Santana just freaked out.
"Sure, Finn had secrets ..." - - what's Kurt talking about?
You're singling out Darren Criss as not being able to act?
I thought the only person in the Finn memorial show worth watching was Romy Rosemont.
Mark Salling's "acting" was embarrassingly bad.
quinn totally wasn't in the ep.
I've always thought the show as very well cast for what it was, A cute show with cute young people singing popular songs.
Ryan Murphy, whatever else you may say about him, has always done a great job finding actors that are right for the roles they are playing. (Think back to "Nip Tuck".)
Maybe Cory Monteith was not a great actor, but he certainly fit the part of Finn.
As far as the episode last night, I liked that the reason for Finn's death wasn't spelled out, but I thought that it was strongly suggested that Finn had come to a bad end and that drugs had killed him.
"'Sure, Finn had secrets ...' - - what's Kurt talking about?"
A deodorant, Rose.
R14 I'm sure he was referring to drugs and or alcohol
Oh Ryan...take my load!
Yeah, the last episode proved that no one can really handle intense dramatic scenes, with the sole exceptions of Rosemont (Finn's mother) and maybe Jane Lynch. I didn't even buy Mike O'Malley's little speech.
When they opened with that dreadfully trite 'Rent' song from that dead plagiarist's musical, I couldn't help but wonder how many of them are "counting the days and minutes" until this show ends.
