After panning last week’s Sadie Hawkins episode so horribly, I have to admit that this week’s Glee, ‘Naked’, was ever-so-slightly superior. It’s sad that in this particular era of the show, that doesn’t mean it’s as good as Glee can get, but it at least didn’t make my skin crawl with embarrassment.
It did make the New Directions boys’ skin crawl, though, as the newly reinstated glee club decide to make and sell a sexy calendar in order to raise money for Regionals. Because it’s considered bad form to objectify women, now, we have to focus solely on the men, and Sam’s spectacularly low SAT scores lead him to overcompensate. I actually liked Sam’s storyline this week, and it’s telling that Blaine was the one to comfort him, and not Brittany. I feel like the show is leaning towards making these two a potential couple, but I just love them as close friends right now. It’s a real male/male camaraderie that has been missing from the show for a long time.
