Also... Sam's family didn't have a place to live last season, and he's had to work as a stripper to help pay household bills, but he has his own car?

His family's house also looks pretty nice for people supposedly struggling as much as they are. But it's Glee.

I think Sue did tell them the day: the TV gig offer came afterwards. I kept waiting for the plot device where they found out that she knew about the TV thing and deliberately asked them to sink it, counting on their guilt. (Which might have happened had their dweeby teacher been there to give them a speech about it.)

Homeless people need dinner and services every night. It's not as if the glee club couldn't perform any other night of the season.

Yes, but even at a homeless shelter you normally have to clear these things ahead of time with the people in charge. You can't just show up and sing at any time.

She told them the date, got it cleared, and came to check, and they chose to do something else after already committing. I'd be pissed, too, even if it was for Sue, especially since she actually had no ulterior motive this time.

Yes, and they could have cleared it ahead of time for a different date. Shelters where I live are happy to host things like this year round, instead if everything crammed together around Christmas.

Plus, they managed a win-win ans arranged to do both. There wasn't an obligatory whiny moral to the story, apart from Rachel and the earrings.

It seemed a bit inappropriate and smug to me, that they sang "Do they know it's Christmas/Feed the world" at a freaking homeless shelter. I'm sure that was supposed to have some special impact, but it it hit me as obnoxious.

Well at least they didn't sing "I'll be Home for Christmas"

Since Artie was going nostalgic for his Special, it's too bad he didn't have Sue on to reenact the Christmas scene from Mommie Dearest...the one where the radio announcer asks what will happen in the Crawford home after he leaves.

I can never understand lyrics. I thought it was "feel"

That was quite possibly the most boring episode of Glee ever IMHO.

I remember back when Glee first started and I'd be watching an episode and suddenly look at the clock and think "There's no way it can be over already!" Now I find myself looking at the clock at 20 minutes (or less) into the show thinking "Is it over yet?" Maybe that's a sign that I should move on, but for some reason each week I keep having hope that it might get better. :wall:

This. I zoned out halfway though. zzzz

It seems the more songs they pack into an episode, the more boring it gets. It makes sense... more songs = less storyline plot. The exceptions to this are the regional/sectional performances. But that may be because they usually perform good songs and the episode is supposed to be heavy on the singing anyway.

The regional/sectional performances are part of an ongoing storyline, so that helps. The show's plotlines tend to culminate to these performances (i.e. Mike's reconciliation with his dad), which can add further depth to the actual musical performances.

The X-Mas episodes tend to be one-offs and have no real connection to the rest of the series. Anyways, I usually dislike most of my shows' X-Mas episodes. In contrast, a lot of series' Thanksgiving episodes tend to rock (i.e. Friends).

Yup. I also think this last episode was a big advertisement/promo for their new Christmas album. I still enjoyed it, though.

I also watch the one with the Holiday Armadillo every year. That never fails to crack me up.

Slightly OT, but The West Wing had terrific Christmas episodes. "In Excelsis Deo" is still one of the best episodes in the entire series.
