    ryan murphy is an idiot, he was a great character, pretty and very loveable

    Darren Criss is the worst person on that show. I fast forward every time he is on the screen.

    I’m horrified. His character’s transformation from pretty boy to dealing with homelessness, loss of social status, was by far the most interesting character progression yet (instead of winner-to-loser-to-winner flip flopping that passes for character growth for the leading cast). His romance with Mercedes was the one really interesting thing that happened in the finale. I was so intrigued with this development and was so looking forward to seeing their story unfold. Mostly though, I have enormous respect for Chord Overstreet. He’s a great actor. He was believable as glowy teen model handsome, but then also as he modulated his character over the season and got quieter, shrank as things worsened for Sam. He slowly became the underdog you love.

    I’m all for Harry Shum getting an upgrade, but I’m way over Darren Criss’s character. Talk about one-dimensional. This was a bad decision.

    too many regulars is hard to write for and keep happy. You seen that with alot of shows that have had large ensembles in the beginning. Look at MASH, went way down in the years, House is getting rid of Cutty. Salaries go up as time goes by too, and people also get greedy with the lines. He is more easy to write off, being homeless, had to move for his father's job opportunities. Also, you CAN'T HAVE EVERYBODY HAPPY AND IN A RELATIONSHIP. No tensions there.

    wtf!!! It took almost the full season for him to finally get good progressive storylines that would help the third series and now their getting rid of the character!? I'm not a huge fan of the show, I wait till it comes on hulu so I can fastfoward through most of the songs, but this was a bad choice by Ryan Murphy.



  6. 6

    Just because Chord Overstreet isn't a series regular doesn't necessarily mean he's off the show. Both Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr. were guest-stars this past season and Harry was in just about every episode. Also, wasn't it Ryan Murphy's goal (at some point) to graduate most of the characters, and bring in a new cast centered around Chord's character? Although, it is possible that that goal has changed.

    I think we're going to see plenty of Sam Evans next season! (and thank god for that!)

    Re: JulieAndrewsWorshiper – Agreed about the Darren part. He is one of my favorite musicians and I adore him/his songs he wrote in the musicals but his character on Glee has no personality and is just so boring to watch



  8. 8

    Well the plan was that the winner of the Glee Project would be Mercedes new love interest if they were a guy so I suppose he has been written out to make room for that. Seems a shame to ditch an established character to make way for a contest winner though.



  9. 9

    Isn't Sam younger than most of the other characters? If they're graduating, why not have Sam stick around to have some continuity into the next round of Glee characters? This move makes no sense to me, especially since they gave Chord's character such personal storylines and character development, when Harry hardly says two words and all Darren's good for is being Chris' boyfriend.



  10. 10

    OMG!! Why would they let Chord Overstreet go he is like my favorite character!! They just gave him an amazing storyline that would have been really interesting. I do not know what Ryan Murphy is doing lately because the season finale was not that great and now he is making changes that could negatively affect the show! I really liked glee in the beginning but now I am starting to get bored.



  11. 11

    Too bad! Unlike Gable, Shum can't sing, can't dance, can act a little.
    Chord can do all three, and is cuter. This show is too pc.



  12. 12

    They should have gotten rid of Darren. Before I liked him a lot but the more I know about him the more I don't like. He has become a douche and has let all the fame go to his head. He has been on more magazine covers, talk shows and award shows then the original members of Glee who been there from the start. He did all that after appearing only in few episodes as a guest star. Now that he a series regular you can just imagine where his head is going to be.



  13. 13

    what's gonna happen to samcedes?!!?!? damn can't mercedes ever get a guy!!

    BUT WHYYYYYYYYY??????? I DONT GET IT!



  15. 15

    Honestly, I think it's probably something that happened behind the scenes. These people sound like total sluts and hos on set.



  16. 16

    Yes his storyline was far better than the others this season but the guy bugged me and i don't rate his singing. Darren Criss is an all right singer but his acting is crap. Also i thought Harry Shum Jr was already a regular considering he's been in the majority of episodes "/ ah well, although he can't act either!



  17. 17

    What the hell? Sam is pretty much my favourite character, and Chord is a better actor than a lot of the other kids on that show. Can't believe they'd rather have all the stupid hook-up/break-up drama than actual storylines, like the one Chord's character had.



  18. 18

    murphy in one of the many interviews after last year's golden globes (2010) said effusively that these kids were going to be going to a ten year high school. why the major reversal about the end of year three is anybody's guess. and don't say it's to keep it realistic. every episode has had several reality stretching moments. earlier this season when he broke up quinn and sam, he said he did it because he (murphy) was bored. one of two things happened. 1) murphy's egomania and arrogance hit new heights or 2) overstreet pissed off murphy and in a fit of uncontrolled rage he made the decision to end his character. i don't see glee going past next season. murphy has a new project and has hired several new writers to possibly free up him and his two partners for that???



  19. 19

    ………who the hell cares about harry shum!?



  20. 20

    WOW!

    I'm really, REALLY surprised it's Chord. I would have thought it was Jenna or Harry…Ryan Murphy really doesn't seem to give a shit about the Asians, I am litterly stunned right now!



  21. 21

    Luckiest thing to happen to him - this show is a sinking ship! Does anyone even still watch this crap besides Perez???



  22. 22

    What?!? Noo I love LOVE Glee but RM is a big idiot!



  23. 23

    but I´ll still watch it because of Lea Michele!!!



  24. 24

    Re: MsOverstreet – I thought thats what they were going to do :(



  25. 25

    I'm so frustrated right now! I can not understand where this stupid decision come from ! What a bad bad bad idea ! He was just starting to have a great character history with his family trouble and the beginning of his relation with mercedes !! For real BAD DECISION Ryan Murphy you really should reconsider this one.



  26. 26

    Good! Adios fishlips.



  27. 27

    Wow did not see this coming. Will miss CHORD OVERSTREET! I hope he lands an really great gig. I hope there is not more being let go.



  28. 28

    mercedes finally got herself a new boyfriend and now he is gone lol



  29. 29

    THIS IS BULLSHIT! CRAP!



  30. 30

    Cord, go out and do a gay PSA and you'll be back into Ryan's good graces. Until then you are persona non grata.



  31. 31

    Too bad…I really liked this character and all of his challenges. I thought his becoming homeless spoke to a lot of Americans today. If another character becomes homeless, it will just be pandering to a real problem. Me thinks I'm getting weary of Glee, despite I bought almost all of the Glee CDs and DVDs. We'll see how next season plays out.



  32. 32

    Well good for him,get out while you can! I loved Glee's first season, it was quirky and different, the story lines were differen and interesting and the songs were fun. Now though, the story lines are typically American, blunt, preachy and not creative like the first season. I quit watching in the second year in disappointment but visit occasionally only to be reminded how good it really once.



  33. 33

    I could not stand this character. Bad acting, bad singing, bad dancing and most of all bad hair.



  34. 34

    Such bull shit. The morbidly obese girl and Darren should have been let go.



  35. 35

    I think RM is right.
    The problem with Glee is it is spreading itself thin trying to focus on 3x the amount of characters that a normal show has and trying to distribute equal screen time. That's impossible. They need to distinguish who is main cast and who is supporting if they really want to revive this show. There are three tiers:
    Tier One (Main Cast)-Rachel, Finn, Kurt, and Santana.
    Tier Two (Supporting)-Blaine, Quinn, Brittany, Mercedes, Puck, and Artie.
    Tier Three (Not Regulars)-Lauren, Mike, Tina, and Sam.

    Plotlines should be distributed that way. Not everyone can be a star, and Glee needs to choose its main character if they want to save the show. Unfortunately, Lauren cannot have her own conflicts and struggles and family tree and romances if the main cast is getting enough screen time! RM is right…any of the third tier is completely disposible. It really won't effect the show.



  36. 36

    THESE PPL ARE JACKASS FOR TAKING HIM OFF DA SHOW!!! NOW WE'LL NEVER KNOW HOW HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH MERCEDES WILL TURN OUT



  37. 37

    best thing to happen to that dudes career. glee is absolute crap. that solo album is gonna flop hardcore though.



  38. 38

    Re: AngelsAdvocate – So you know he is a jerk for a fact now? Because he seems like a nice guy. In fact i know someone who met him and said he was really sweet to her and unlike other celebs he was willing to give her the time of day. But just because you get all this fame sometimes it will go to your head and sometimes it will not.

    Its sad but Chord Overstreet's appearance in the show was completely anti-climatic. He was paired off, and then immediately faded into the background. Things won't be too different with or without him. The only little bit of storyline we did get for him was probably just to prepare us for his departure.
