Speaking of bright lights that have long since burnt out, Glee gasped and wheezed its way through a fourth year.

Television Without Pity

Glee returned to US screens to a split narrative, likeable new characters and an overall surprisingly watchable start to what looks to be an improved new season.

The promise of Glee always exceeded what it was capable of, but that promise - even in this episode - is rich indeed.

Hudson plays an already-senior hoofer, far removed from her days as an ingenue. She's a blast as the oldster on the dance floor.

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.

By the time these guys start dropping back in, we should be back to the overstuffed, crazy-making "Glee."

I'm willing to live with Glee's irritants because, at their most raw and calculatedly naive, the New York scenes remind me of what it was like to be on the cusp of twenty.

One can't help hoping that tonight's seasonal start - and substantial, re-energized reboot - represents a return to a better, saner, more story-centered show.

The Fox musical comedy returns for a fourth season and faces its greatest challenge - life after its most popular characters have graduated and, for the most part, left the building.
