11 Times Glee Tried to Take on Serious Issues… and Failed, Miserably
Glee has been off the air for almost a year, but it’s still on our minds. The Fox series was iconic when it came to musical numbers, unlike all of the TV shows that had totally bizarre musical episodes; it was smart, witty, upbeat, but, at times completely, 100% out. Of. Line. Sure, the characters you came to love were great on most occasions, but if you look back, they actually made a LAWT of mistakes.
In fact, there are a LOT of episodes in which Glee tried to get really deep… and epically failed. The dramedy definitely did its fair share of perfectly executing episodes that addressed social issues — like Kurt’s coming out to his father — but, sadly, not all of them were winners. Take a trip down memory lane and see all of the times that the musical television show failed to get it right and angered many fans in the process:
When Puck hosted a ~*BaKeD*~ sale.
Noah "Puck" Puckerman was a total bad boy, so if he got baked (a.k.a. if he smoked — or ATE — marijuana), we wouldn't have been shocked. The fact that he sold pot cupcakes at a school bake sale on campus and made a TON of money without any controversy or getting caught, on the other hand, was ridiculous.
During Season 1, New Directions needed money to get to Sectionals and to afford a wheelchair accessible bus, so obviously they sold pot cupcakes.
Yeah, this is NOT normal or okay. Plus, Puck did it to prove that he could be responsible and then give the money to Quinn Fabray for the baby he fathered, which is the exact opposite of being responsible. This entire storyline is absurd and not at all appropriate.
