No worries... I apologize if I seemed harsh.
I actually teach my high school students how to review a movie... we compare/contrast movies, we look for deeper meanings and we sometimes just watch a bad movie to eviscerate it! LOL
My suggestions, as I said before, is more opinion. When you write a review you also should NOT
use "I think..." because I, as the reader, already know it's what you think because you are writing the review! Don't waste the time and space typing it.
When you say something like the songs were good, explain why. For example the "It's not easy being green" song fit because the kid is Irish AND new to the school and the song is all about being different (both new and foreign).
When talking about the songs discuss if there's a good mix (not enough for the girls... too much Rachel... too many ballads etc.) and if the song was well done. Maybe even compare it a bit (if you're familiar with it or willing to youtube the song) with the original.
See my initial comments too for furthering explanations.
Also, not every episode is perfect... be sure to point out some flaws too!
