'Glee' Episode 16 Recap: Somewhere Like 'Home'


It's not easy coming off one of the best hours of television you'll see all year, but I think Glee took the right path by choosing a more subtle, quiet episode. If last week's episode was the Madonna night, then this week's was the Burt Bacharach night. Or the Kristin Chenoweth night since the Broadway star took center stage with three major numbers. I think it may have been a teensy too much Cheno, but I understand wanting to maximize that voice.


In all honesty, I didn't love Home the first time I watched it. But the problem was I had watched it right after the Madonna episode, which is so fast-paced and exuberant - Home is different. It's one of those episodes that probably won't yield a big iTunes hit (well, maybe Beautiful) but it added such depth to the characters. It takes a pretty ambitious show to include four major music numbers while also tackling teen girl body issues and parents struggling with their children's sexuality. For those that say Glee is silly, take a better look at Home.
