Lindsey, I share your disappointment about Rachels's dads. Jeff Goldblum is one of the most boring actors in Hollywood and I thought the other one was supposed to be black. They were not supposed to have fashion sense and they obviously don't discipline the girl as they should. We should have met them long ago and they should have been close to Kurt for over a year. Some singing talent would be in order as well.

Just an FYI... "Joe" won a spot on The Glee Project and will be in a min of 7 episodes... The writers seem to be trying to transition to a new cast of kids since many will be graduating and moving on...

Seriously I think you should just give your job to someone else, it's clear in your mind every episode will be shit so either do your job and be in bias or handball it over to
someone who doesn't make me feel sad everytime I read the review.

Actually, I think if he doesn't like Glee that much, he should just give the position to someone else and stick to the shows he does like. TVD, for example.

I think the reviewer needs to stop reading the glee sucks blog and realise his audience (the people reading this) aren't actually against glee.

A great writer needs to feel his audience and you're way off the mark.

This episode was certainly much better than the past few weeks, but I must agree that I hate the way Glee has dealt with societal issues as of late. I think the writers just need to sit down and decide which direction they are going in instead of wavering between two concepts. They either need to tackle these issues seriously and develop full, organized plots, or they need to just make Glee about the music. Either way is fine with me, they just need to figure it out and stick with it.

Also, was anyone else disappointed by Rachel's dads? You would think that she would have the most ridiculously-over-the-top parents in the world, but they were surprisingly lackluster. I've been waiting since the first episode to meet them and they just didn't match up to my expectations. I thought they should have at least been introduced with a crazy Broadyway-style number. I don't know.

I totally agree that Glee is intended to have an impact on society, rather than be enjoyed as mindless fluff. And I don't even think it's been entirely unsuccessful. After all, when Glee first started up, it was giving tv viewers a brand new genre. To me, there was something fresh about it; as a theatre kid, I felt that there was finally a show depicting people like me. And even past that early stage, Glee has had some meaningful storylines, such as the Kurt/bullying arc. I think that right now, Glee is experiencing a slump of bad writing and little continuity, but I'm just holding out for something meaningful again. That's the reason I still (somewhat ashamedly) call myself a fan. It's not because I enjoy listening to wacky characters sing auto-tuned pop songs; it's because I'm hoping against hope that Glee will get good again.

I still think the reviewer should take it down a notch. This show is a musical dramedy. I think the way it addresses the "harder" issues is as heavy or actually as light as it should. I think they are making a solid effort into creating something completely new, in the form of the episode, the dialogs; sometimes with more sometimes with less success. And most importantly it is a show for teenagers, American teenagers if I may add. And besides don't forget your review is posted on a website called "tv fanatic", for gods sake, not the Herald Tribune or Harvard Cultural Study group.

Nothing was cut out to "add" the Whitney song. It was already part of the show coincidentally - all they added was the tribute to Whitney at the end.
