Glee Recap: The Theme Is Obviously Jumpsuits

As Mr. Schuester might have said in the early days of Glee, before his character transitioned from "imparter of platitudes to misfit youths" to "occasionally horrible racist," John Travolta may have been the face of Saturday Night Fever, but the Bee Gees were its heart.
