Review - Glee Season 2 Episode 8 Furt

Glee can't tackle real issues like bullying with the kind of razor sharp edge The Wire has when it comes to inner-city problems. It's a show rooted in base simplicity which allows for lengthy songs and quick plot developments to exist, and not a show for social commentary. Still, "Furt" dips its toe into the bullying discussion and finally allows some pushback against the bullying. And there's a surprisingly emotional wedding for Burt and Carole with all the Glee members participating.

Sue's mother returning was fine for the most part, but what prompted her arrival, Sue getting married to herself, was completely bizarre. Yeah, I get that Sue's self-dependent and stuff, but she turned into a total cartoon character.

Score: 8.8/10
