I Agree about Glee

June 15, 2010

Remember when I said the following (you should, it was only yesterday):

  • Rachel’s mom is incredibly selfish in thinking she can just start over with a new baby and ignore and forget about what she already has. (annoying)
  • Uhm, is adoption really that easy?  You hear about a baby, go see it in the hospital, and take it home with you within 24 hours? (unrealistic)

Well, I wasn’t the only one who felt like this.  Ken Tucker said it much better than I did:

One development sticks in my craw, however. Shelby Corcoran ends up with Beth? After spurning the requests of her real, neglected daughter, Rachel? I couldn’t get past this. It was impossible to fully adore that absolutely adorable baby, knowing that the kid is going to be raised by a woman who spurned her teenage daughter.

Saying that what she really wants is “a house, and a garden, and a dog,” Shelby settles for a newborn, adopted child… when she has her own child, Rachel, upon whom she could lavish some of that love. Strikes me as selfish.
