Glee, "Yes/No": we found plot in a plotless place

Quick Take: Glee, “Yes/No”
Glee returns and ups the cheese factor.  


Review: Glee, “Yes/No”
(S0310) We found plot in a plotless place! We found plot in a plotle-oh, I'm sorry. I was just singing about how Glee has a semi-interesting plot going on since its return to Fox this week. Lets discuss, shall we?

Last time we left our cast of good looking misfits, they has just celebrated a plotless -- and consequence-less --Christmas. Now, the entire gang of gleesters are asked by their insufferable teacher, Mr. Schuester (played by Matthew Morrison) to find the perfect song to propose to Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mayes). Not only that, but Sam (Chord Overstreet) wants his Mercedes (Amber Riley) back. And he is willing to embarrass himself further to obtain her. Finn (Cory Monteith,) on the other hand, wants to pursue a more honorable career as an army man and begins to talk to a recruiter. With all this drama, the show has to be good, right? Well then, why am I left wanting more?

This episode touches on a lot of different storylines. The whole bit with Artie (Kevin McHale) dating Becky (Lauren Potter) was a nice message. What's not nice is how Sue's (Jane Lynch's) characterization goes out the door in the final scene with Emma and Will. And on the subject of Emma and Will, I can't find myself caring for their engagement when Will is probably the most irresponsible teacher in McKinley High. I do find Mercedes and Sam's relationship interesting as well as Sam's impeccable abs. I hope that since he has joined the synchronized swimming team, we get to see more white chocolate.

Of all the plot antics this week, I found only two to be clever. One is finding out how Finn's dad died. It's a welcome twist, but I think it would have been better if Will and Emma weren't there to gawk at him when his mother revealed it. It also seems anti-military to discourage Finn from pursuing something he seemed interested in doing. The other thing that I will admit is clever is bringing back the synchronized swim team for the final number; they were like a Chekhov's army. This moment is ruined by seeing Will literally walk on water towards Emma to propose to her. I wanted to pee in that pool. On the bright side, Glee's over of “We Found Love” by Rihanna was perfect. Now excuse me, I need to mash the Youtube repeat button.
