Saying that you’re getting tired of a Glee character is like saying that you’re tired of ice cream — it’s not a very common complaint. So while we love each and every one of the show’s amazing characters, there are currently a few that seem to be getting more screen time than they deserve, which in turn is limiting other people’s time in the spotlight.
With that in mind, here are our top five picks for the characters who could use a tad less screen time on Glee. And don’t forget to check out our picks for the Top 5 Characters Who Need MORE Screen Time. Come to think of it, everything would be a lot easier if each Glee episode were 11 hours long, no?
5. Brody Weston
What’s the deal with this guy? Does he actually like Rachel (Lea Michele), or is he just a player? At any rate, now that he’s hooked up with Cassandra (Kate Hudson) in “Glease,” we’re kinda over the dude. Still, if you think we’re gonna complain about seeing Brody (Dean Geyer) shirtless from time to time, you’re way off.
4. Finn Hudson
Don’t get us wrong: We love seeing Finn (Cory Monteith) in charge of the glee club, and it’s great that he’s taken an interest in something. Still, we’ve been getting a lot of him lately, and there are numerous other graduates we’d probably rather see. (Quinn [Dianna Agron] and Santana [Naya Rivera], just to name two.) Plus, seeing Finn all by his lonesome just reminds us how bummed we are that he’s not still with Rachel. (What can we say? We’re fragile.)
3. Sue Sylvester
Can someone tell us why exactly she has a baby? Or why she’s so opposed to Finn leading the New Directions, after seeming to make nice with them at the end of last season — as she does at the end of every season? True, Glee wouldn’t be the same without her quips, but we’re not exactly sure that Sue’s (Jane Lynch) being used effectively right now. We just hope she doesn’t throw us across the room for saying that.
Unique (Alex Newell) is an interesting character to have added to the cast, but sometimes it feels like there are other minor characters we’d like to see more of instead — like Karofsky (Max Adler), for example. And as powerful as Alex’s voice is, it still feels strange that he’s spent so much time on Glee despite not technically “winning” The Glee Project. Or maybe we’re still just going through Rory (Damian McGinty) withdrawals.
Doesn’t it seem like Kitty (Becca Tobin) is always on our screen these days? Sure, she offers a fair share of funny lines, but she feels like the least essential of the new characters, primarily because she isn’t particularly well-rounded. Then again, maybe we’re just bitter that, not only is she going way overboard in her treatment of Marley (Melissa Benoist), but she’s trying to interfere with Jarley. Leave Jarley alone!
