I stumbled across this promotional image from Fox when searching for reactions to Glee‘s winter finale, “On My Way.” It was the first time I’d seen the image, which features the ladies of McKinley High’s glee club doing a questionable homage to Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo‘s Oscar-nominated comedy Bridesmaids. At least that explains why the girls were wearing such horrible pink dresses in the episode!
I can’t quite put my finger on why, but this image rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it’s because Glee has become so damn smug, and it’s way too easy a joke for them to make. Not to mention that the whole plotline of Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn (Cory Monteith) getting married even though they don’t want to be stuck in Lima happened way too fast and has catapulted the show into unrealistic territory.
And of course, we have to point out that poor Quinn (Dianna Agron) doesn’t even get to be part of the jokey Bridesmaids photo. Because at best, she’ll be in the hospital when the show returns on April 10, and at worst she’ll be the second character they’ve killed off senselessly.
