If you don't want to know anything about the “Glee” season finale, read no further. I know some of you may not have had time to watch it online yet.
I'm not so sure how I feel about the last night's hyped-up conclusion of “Glee.” While some of the season's storylines involving the club's couples were wrapped up nicely – Kurt and Blaine, Brittany and Santana, Rachel and Finn, even a new beginning for Mercedes and trouty-mouth Sam – I'm not happy with the way that Nationals turned out. While I didn't really expect New Directions to win, I couldn't believe that the team didn't even make the top 10.
Yes, I understand it was about the journey and not the destination, life isn't always fair, and blah, blah, blah – they drove that point home at the end of the episode, which I thought was a little cheesy. “So, let's sum up what we've learned this year!” Did they not trust the viewers at home to figure it out on their own? Anyway, I don't see why the team couldn't have finished in, say, fourth place, or seventh place, or even 10th. They wrote and performed some killer original songs! I didn't think that Rachel and Finn's heat-of-the-moment onstage kiss was big enough of a problem to cost them Nationals. It wasn't like it was a full-on make-out session.
Nationals disappointment aside, I thought the sweetest moments were Rachel's encounter with Patti LuPone while on her “romantic comedy”-style date with Finn, and Kurt and Rachel's Broadway moment onstage at “Wicked.” Once the Glee Club members graduate, will there be a spin-off about Kurt and Rachel's adventures in New York City? I would watch.

And if you can't get enough of the "Glee" gang, the Glee tour will be coming to Toronto on June 11 and 12. Ticket prices are a little outrageous, though.
