Glee Recap: Misguidedly Supportive Television Parents

This week’s Glee is the first true tribute episode since September’s Britney Spears episode; truth be told, it rankles a bit. There are some artists that you can meet just as well via covers — Stevie Wonder isn’t one of them. He’s too important, too definitive. As sock-knocking as a Mercedes Jones cover of “Higher Ground” is, it’s damn near impossible to touch the original. That said, I couldn’t help but nod along when Mr. Schue talked about Stevie Wonder’s legacy of joy and optimism, and I couldn’t help but be enamored with this week’s episode as an example of old-school, season-one Glee.
