Not only the worst episode of the season, but one of the worst episodes of Glee ever produced.

Schuester continues to become one of the most poorly written television characters in recent memory. Twerking with students down the hallway of a public High School? Refusing to trade a crappy dance move for a restroom key? Singing a song about date rape? All of it was completely bizarre. I was so happy when Sue finally fired his ass in the middle of the episode, but then they had to go and reinstate him less than five minutes later. Where are the consequences in this show?

Unique's bathroom crusade was underwhelming. I can see how it might have worked with a better actor, but this kid just doesn't have the chops. Even though the rendition if "If I Were a Boy" was well sung, I just couldn't bring myself to give a shit.

Just as predicted last week, Jake and Marley broke up. Did anyone really expect anything different to happen? The relationship drama has started to completely dominate the show - the friendship between the club used to be their bread and butter, but now it barely exists. Marley's rendition of "Wrecking Ball" was awful, and her actually sitting on a wrecking ball was cringe-worthy. There's subtlety, and then there's whatever the hell Glee did tonight.

The only thing that came close to working? The Rachel and Kurt tattoo subplot, and even that was only saved by the last minute (predictable) revelation that Rachel had Finn's name tattooed on her ribs. It was the one sweet moment in an otherwise sour episode of Glee.

your looking for consequences in a show that regularly allows student to break into song in the middle a school day and go dancing around the school?

I don't get Will at all anymore he started out wanting the kids to be themselves and now he is obsessed with winning so a better question is why and when did Will become Sue?



Dont say its not worth it, when you can sleep with no fear, that kind of time is worth any thing.- FFX

Wow, you need to
a) listen to the lyrics of Blurred Lines a little better
b) see the Wrecking Ball music video...where Miley's actually sitting on a wrecking ball

a) I've listened to the lyrics. They can be viewed in a number of different ways, and date rape is definitely a valid interpretation (Sue and Artie both refer to it in that context within the episode).
b) Trust me, I've seen the video - my daughter wouldn't let me not see it. It works within the context of Miley's music video, but when Marley does it in the middle of a break-up? I wasn't really feeling it...

Hardly valid- the lyrics never imply anything like slipping her a roofie, and he's not asking for a date or anything non-sexual...he's asking outright for sex. He's saying "Come with me if you want to have sex with me." Rapists also don't usually say things like "that man is not your maker" and "go ahead, get at me". Plus in the song they never actually go anywhere, I kinda took that as implying an "Only the Good Die Young" ending where the girl doesn't go along, but there's nothing in the lyrics to state they actually have sex, consensual or otherwise.

Wrecking Ball is about...a breakup. Plus Miley on the wrecking ball is the most iconic thing about the song, when doing something about Wrecking Ball in a visual medium you HAVE to have someone on a wrecking ball. It would be like when Glee covered Thriller but if they hadn't done the zombie dance moves. If you don't do it, everybody doesn't go "Hey, nice job being subtle!" they go "HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU NOT DO THE THRILLER DANCE/PERSON ON A WRECKING BALL?!?!?"

...on DVD. For those who are waiting for it (or for those who don't want to import); I thought I saw an Amazon.com link to buy this somewhere but I don't have it on me right now. Has anyone seen the entire Confidential series?
