Wildly ambitious at times, not always successful, but always trying weird, new things.

We did end up with a graduation episode that was heartfelt, comical and, yes, absolutely ridiculous.

There was no agenda, be it related to sex or drugs or homosexuality. Instead, there was simply time spent with New Directions and the realistic problems many of them would face in real life.

Unfortunately, the premiere didn't add anything new to make me think I wasn't eating the same sugary snack we've been force-fed all summer.
