Why “Glee” should kill off Finn Hudson
Writers didn’t seem to know what to do with Cory Monteith’s character last season, and all other options just wouldn’t ring true. As Kevin Fallon notes, “‘Glee’ has never shied away from the fact that there are harsh truths in life that we all must deal with, whether it”s bullying or broken dreams or heartbreak. It would be hard to imagine, then, that the show would balk at directly addressing Monteith’s death.” PLUS: It would be “culturally valuable” for “Glee” to acknowledge Monteith’s death, Matthew Perry weighs in on Monteith’s death, and Bravo will re-air “Glee’s” “Actor’s Studio,” which you can watch here.
