Somewhere in my fingers is a longer post about how Glee has gone completely off the rails, but I need a few days to compose it properly. For now, I just want to open with a question. It goes a little something like this:
If we follow the logic of this season’s “Britney/Brittany” episode (episode 2), Ms. Spears is threatening because her unbridled sexuality can cause students to break out into a massive “sex riot”. However, Madonna, from the first season’s “The Power of Madonna” show (episode 15), still stands as an icon of empowerment and self-expression. How, then, do the writers explain the live song and dance performance in the clip below?
Do we really need to tell the writers of this show that quite clearly takes place in an American high school that they need to do their homework?
Okay, that’s two questions. Maybe I should work on my math. Discuss below.
