Glee Prom

Sam, Santana, and Britney Rock Out

[some spoilers below]

I belong to what I call the Astoria Glee Club. As you might have guessed from the title of the post, we are not a club that sings, but one that watches the show Glee.  It stated out as just having dinner on Tuesdays, but the first time someone suggested that we eat dinner in from of a huge flat screen TV while watching Glee, our primary motivation has changed.

Lately, I have been finding Glee less engaging than last year. For the most part, though, I really enjoyed last night’s episode. The reason is that it actually had to do with high school. Glee takes place in a high school, but these past months have had no one acting like they were actually in high school. At any rate, although I did enjoy it, I did have a few problems with the episode.

  1. How come there was only one chaperone at the prom.
  2. Where has the undercurrent of gay bashing been that would have led to tonight’s big scene? Since the guy who had been the leader has since reformed, there hasn’t been any thing at all. How was the [xxxxx] organized with NO ONE from the Glee Club finding out about it ahead of time?
  3. Why was the orchestra there if only the Glee Club was getting paid?
  4. Why was the AV club painting the set for the Prom?
  5. Why was [that guy you didn’t expect to come back] back? It wasn’t really explained?
  6. Who thinks they can hire Air Supply for $400?
  7. Most striking of all, why did Mr. Schuster arrange to have one of the kids who was running for Prom Queen scheduled to sing the song that the Prom Queen and King dance to?
