Glee "Furt": Looking for something dumb to do
After a string of embarassing episodes, what a relief to find the Glee that so many connected with in the first season back on the air. Besides an inspired casting of Carol Burnett as Sue's mom (even though it was largely wasted), "Furt" brought back the most important ingredient in any good Glee episode: Kurt's dad Burt (Mike O'Malley). It also brought back some heart, and the wedding of Burt and Carole went a long way to keep me from deleting Glee from my DVR queue.
The Sue marrying herself storyline? Not so much, but we did get Carole Burnett in the deal, and anytime Sue the character is forced to become human, good things seem to follow.
