See? I do credit the show with finally having a family member who is less than perfect about the whole coming out thing, as I suspect is sort of more the norm in middle America. But the rest blew chunks and was a major let down.
Yikes, That Was Sour
After the great Adele mash up in the last episode, I had hopes that Glee had once again found its musical footing. But every number in this was seriously underwhelming. It seriously felt like they needed filler and came up with songs and situations that required the least amount of arrangement, choreography or skill. The only group number, I Kissed A Girl, fell flat and I'm still trying to wash Coach Beiste's Jolene out of my brain. Speaking of...
Beiste V. Sue
Watching Beiste pine over the man dating Sue was painful to watch from just about every angle. It's funny to me how Glee refuses to develop Artie or Tina and yet Beiste gets so much of a storyline. But the biggest problem with this story is that I WANT to like it. Girl who never gets the guy goes after the cutie dating the evil blonde? I mean, that's the making of every good teen 90s film. And the awkwardness of the actual characters involved should make it really unique. But mostly, its uncomfortable to watch and crazy hard to buy. I want this storyline to die. I want it to die now.
This needs no explanation. Just look.
Who in wardrobe did Chris Colfer piss off?
That's it. It's all the Glee my brain can take. Luckily, the far superior Ryan Murphy show is on tonight, and will hopefully rid me of any memory of last night's disaster of an episode.
