“Glee” Episode 306 Recap: World War Glee

on

I didn’t expect this episode to live up to the standard set

by last week’s. I was hoping, however, for a little consistency of style and

tone, some more cohesive use of the themes raised last week and throughout the

season.

Then I remembered: It’s Glee.

Roll with it. So we’ll roll, from the cartoon-violence, unrealistic “Sue for Congress” campaign ads and

developments, to the set-to-music dodgeball war, to the ongoing tragedy of Blaine Anderson‘s short pants, all the

way to the not-so-cartoonish-anymore final few minutes of “Mash-Off.”

The first thing we learn is that the Lion King Puck-fassa has been caged. He’s hot for

teacher. He sings about it. I couldn’t bear to watch. I’m sure there is some

kind of Pucklby fandom where you can watch the clip if you missed it.

When Puck Halen performs for the rest of the New Directions,

Rachel wonders if “Hot For

Teacher” is appropriate. Of course it’s not appropriate, Rachel, but

neither is half the stuff you kids do in show choir, so deal with it.

Mr. Schue says

whether or not it’s appropriate depends on what Puck’s intent is. Puck (who had

earlier voiced-over that he’s 18 so his relationship with Shelby

is legal) lies and says, “Guess I just dig Van Halen.” Will high-fives him.

Is there somewhere I can sign up to conscientiously object

to this storyline?
