Glee's Audience Keeps Tumbling Down: Is There Any Way Back Up?

A friend was talking to me the other day about Glee. Yes, that TV show that used to have 10 million plus audiences in the USA alone. That show where one of the most popular characters died a tragic death. Another season of that show ended just last week, and the closing episode apparently scored another new low in audience ratings. And after next season, it's been decided that it's all coming to an end.

Many people have written the show off entirely by now. But not me. You see, there's always a way back up.

I suggest that they look at returning some of the cast that stopped appearing in the middle of last season. In particular the character Marley (played by Melissa Benoist). It's the best character Glee has ever had, in my opinion. Unlike most others on the show, she's actually inspiring. That's probably because she isn't selfish, annoying, and sometimes borderline immoral like many other Glee characters. It's something you can actually identify with, I would say.

Not to mention how she has a great relationship with her mother. Great family relationships should always be celebrated as an important part of our culture, I believe!

Angelina Jolie in Politics? Maybe. I'd Support Her.

Angelina Jolie has done a lot of great things. Maybe she could do well with a career in politics? Recently when she was asked, she left the door open on that.

"You know, if I thought I'd be effective, I would," she told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America. "But I'm not sure if I would ever be taken seriously in that way, and be able to be effective."

I personally think I may be able to support her, from what I've seen of her. I mean, you can't go wrong with being humanitarian and freedom loving, right?
