You know, I've been willing to overlook Glee's faults for quite awhile now, because I truly believe that what they're doing with the overall product is revolutionary. There has NEVER been a show that brings gay issues and inclusiveness to the mainstream like Glee (and no Will & Grace does NOT count, thanksforplaying). On the other hand it can also be insanely clunky, overbearing, unfunny, and like last week's "gay bullying episode" a near train wreck. But like a train wreck, I can't stop watching! Just like I couldn't stop watching this clip from next week's episode in which Gwyneth Paltrow plays a substitute teacher who sings Cee-Lo's "Fuck You." (But of course, they change it to "Forget You.") This particular train leaps off the tracks, barrels through a kid's chemo treatment center, runs over 37 baskets of puppies, and then explodes in a firestorm of WHAT THE FUCK. (Or rather, what the "forget.") Watch.
