This is just the beginning! They are not done with the show after this season. I'll admit that it took me some time to warm up to the 'new kids' on Friday Night Lightswhich ends its run tomorrow on NBCbut it was a well-done transition. What I loved most was that the new blood didn't try to be the new versions of the old characters.
They were new characters with completely different outlooks and goals. Glee could learn a lot from what Friday Night Lights accomplished: But the question is: Is Glee looking to be the less-attractive comedy cousin of Friday Night Lights A show that is filled with heart and love that is funny. It sends an amazing message to kids about the arts and being who you are.
She's a very strong, driven girl, who's sometimes a little misunderstood. But she's got at least 12 costume changes each episode. That same look all the time just gets boring for the screen and for the actress to wear, so we spread it out a lot. We try to have her buttoned-up or wearing a nerdy sweater over a cute dress, like she doesn't quite get it right. Or she takes that sweater and tucks it into the skirt and pairs it with knee highs and flats.
She makes it her way, which is more quirky. The popular girls find a way to make it look cool, but Rachel makes it look nerdy. But it's not old-school nerdy with thick glasses and pocket protectors. She thinks she's taking a trend and making it cool, but she wears it wrong. She has explained, "[Blair] is shady, but you still love her. That's what I try to do with Rachel. Rachel will never be popular because her looks aren't considered beautiful, and when I was in high school it was the same for me.
I didn't get a nose job, and every single girl around me did.

And in four years, high school will be over and all of that crap won't matter anyway. Several songs performed by Michele as Rachel have been released as singles, available for digital downloadalso featuring on the soundtracks Glee: The Music, Volume 1 and Glee: The Music, Volume 2.
George of the New York Post has deemed Rachel "the only female [in Glee] who doesn't come across as manipulative or vapidly helpless",  while the Chicago Tribune's Maureen Ryan wrote, "Lea Michele not only has an amazing voice but manages to make her character, spoiled diva Rachel Berry, more than a humorless stereotype. He said that while he understood this stance, he generally disagreed with it as the show treats male characters equally poorly.
However, he wrote that "it was a bit much when Finn looked at Rachel in her catsuit and frizzy hair and said she looked like a 'sad clown hooker.
The type-A, uber-talented, self-involved know-it-all who's usually alienating her classmates let her guard down to expose a vulnerable side. And, as a bonus, we got some super solid musical performances from those awkward courtships. But Rachel's eye-on-the-prize, I'll-get-what-I-want attitude coupled with her inappropriate crush on the teacher just made her creepier than usual.
