The Daily Review: A New and Improved (for now) Glee
Few shows experience growing pains more publicly than Fox's Glee, the exuberant and irreverent — and often painfully inconsistent — coming-of-age musical comedy that is in a seemingly constant state of reinvention, often at its own peril. Coming off the most significant upheaval to date, a graduation-day finale that sent a number of its most prominent characters (Rachel, Kurt, Finn, Quinn, Santana, Mercedes, Mike Chang) into the world beyond Lima, Ohio, Glee rebounds in the fourth season with a terrifically entertaining season opener on a new night and time (Thursdays, 9/8c). Glee may never be able to recapture its initial glow and buzz, but if this is an indication of its future, I like where it's heading.
