Let’s talk Glee. [Unless you haven’t seen last night’s episode yet and are spoiler-averse.] On the whole, “Funeral” was a pretty weird episode; as EW recapper Sandra Gonzalez notes, it was shockingly streamlined and often difficult to watch. “Funeral” also toned Sue way, way down, a choice that was especially jarring considering it came after a whole spate of episodes in which she’s acted even more cartoonishly than usual (torturing Artie with dentist tools in her office, anyone?).
So here’s my question: Do you think the episode worked? Or do you think that Glee has gotten too fanciful to attempt an hour like this, which tried to inspire real emotion in its viewers?
