BullBearMS: The first episode this season seemed a bit rushed.  This one was just fine.

It would be interesting to see them keep the Pierce character and just have Fred Willard step in and play him.



I was thinking that too. Just replace Chase with Fred Willard and have the characters act like nothing had changed. That would have been awesome and it's not like it would hurt the show at this point.

/ Chang was way better when he was a Spanish teacher with anger issues and not a  creepy psycho

schrodinger: shut_it_down: If that episode was the fan favorite, then the fans are getting exactly what they deserve now.  They bemoan the new season when they're the ones that were singing the praises of references in lieu of comedy and clumsy grabs at sentimentality.  I used to be a staunch supporter of the show but it's uneven at best now.  When the show plays with format as a way of exploring the characters, it's amazing. (Chaos Theory, Dungeons and Dragons).  When the genre overrides everything about them, it's nigh unwatchable (Pillows and Blankets, L&O).

The low point was the Glee episode.  Not only was it empty and completely devoid of any genuine emotion ("Hey, the teacher was a mass murderer who was planning to kill the entire study group, lol!"), but it wasn't even very good in the sense of being a parody or a satire.  At least P&B and L&O was willing to play things straight and put some thought into it.  The Glee episode was just lazy, like watching something from the "Scary Movie" Franchise.  The fact that no one seems to care that a mass murderer ran away is just really off putting.

I really have no idea why so many people liked the Glee episode, but I suspect that they might have been biased since it was the last episode before hiatus, so they wanted to convince themselves that the show was leaving on a high note.


Because it was a Christmas episode, I looked at it as a "special" episode/semi-canon, so any character or plot inconsistencies didn't bug me. I thought it was hilarious and enjoyable.
