Glee needs to get back to the gay storylines, even though it looks to me like the producers are itching to break up Blaine and Kurt, and that’s sad, because I really don’t want to see Kurt with a broken heart, though Chris Colfer will act the hell out of it. I’ll understand the reason, though. Darren Criss, who plays Blaine is so incredibly talented as a dancer/singer/actor, he tends to push other actors off the screen, so the show can benefit with him being paired up with others, like the sexy and dangerous Sebastian Smythe.
Glee could get a whole lot more gay if Kurt was allowed to take a giant step forward because he’s now sexually active. Maybe, instead of chaste eye-blinking with Blaine at Breadstix, Kurt could get back to Scandals and start cruising. I can imagine that musical number: something by the Scissor Sisters. I can’t wait to freeze-frame the DVR to read Kurt’s Grindr profile.
I think dude’s right here, on a couple of counts. I do think that Glee is at its best in gay storylines. Rachel and Finn are the worst couple ever if you compare them to Kurt and Blaine, for instance.
Kurt’s storyline, most especially, has touched the hearts of so many people, even those with no predeliction for gay storylines. And Chris Colfer has said several times that he believes Kurt’s storyline benefits from an honesty that is hard to find — because Kurt’s story is largely Ryan Murphy’s. However, I do think they do very well when they hit other issues head-on too. Becky’s most recent storyline was fantastic. The problem is, they rarely want to look at other issues as plainly as they do “the gay”.
And no, I’m not going to freak if Kurt and Blaine split up, but I can’t imagine Kurt being the cruising type (not at this age anyway and not in such a depressing Ohio small-town gay bar). I mean, yes, he has had sex now. That doesn’t turn everyone into an 18 year old bar fly. For the record, my brain does not balk at the idea of a single Blaine suddenly becoming a Scandals regular.
What think ye of all of this?
