The execution was just straight-up cheeseball.

It's wonderful to see that, despite the difficulties, the show has come back better than last year (for now) and apparently with a new spring in its step.

To one degree or another, I was embarrassed for all the actors reaching beyond their talents to try to save bad writing and, far too often, delivering crying jags that rang completely false and hollow.

Overall, tonight was as awkward as expected. While it was a decent and typical Glee return, there's a sadness sort of looming over the show now. I'm interested to see where we'll go from here.

"Love Love Love" isn't much of an episode, much less a premiere, but it's one hell of an antacid.
