For two seasons Mike has done little more than act as diversity filler on this show. Glee writers decided it was time to bring him out of the shadows and focus an episode on him. This was a great opportunity to develop his character into something more than just a stereotype.
After toying with a few different titles for this episode, which included “Asians Have Tiny Penises” and “Asians Are Bad Dlivers (Drivers! They can’t pronounce their R’s!)”, they settled on “Asian F”. Mike’s father tells the principal that he wants Mike to be drug tested every day because he got an A-, an “Asian F” (HA!), in chemistry.

The Onion posts hilarious story, America freaks out
So, The Onion started this #CongressHostage story on twitter and their website. Immediately, real news outlets everywhere started to question: is The Onion serious? If you have to ask that, no. They are not serious. Here are a bunch of instances where people are being stupid about this:
Second-to-last episode for this season. Really looking forward to it, because last week’s episode was fucking amazing. It had Bill Burr, and it ended in a totally David Lynchian way, and it was great. Just saying, if you don’t watch that show, then good. You don’t deserve it.
Eugene Miriman Trolls an Anti-Gay Phone Company
Pretty much amazing. Sure, this wasn’t posted this week, but I watched it this week, so it counts.
And finally, This Week, On Glee:
Yo Glee, “Asian F” is a good tag, but I wouldn’t open with it. Otherwise, it looks like we’re having Mercededs and Rachel battle it out in a diva-off. Wait, why does that sound familiar? Oh, that’s because that happened last season. But now it’s for a spot in a musical, which is a totally different. Blergh.
You know how sometimes you’re hungry, you’re digging through the fridge, and you suddenly remember that leftover Chinese? You can’t exactly pinpoint how long it’s been in there, but you know it’s too long. But hey, you’re hungry, so you give it an extra 30 seconds in the microwave, and tell yourself that will kill all the bacteria. Of course, you’re wrong, and as you take that first bite, you can tell that you made a mistake. A terrible mistake. But now you’re committed, and come hell or diarrhea, you’re going to finish those leftovers.
This is pretty much what happened in the writers room at they created the script for “Unicorn”. The only difference was that instead of Chinese food, it was some stupid drama they wrote in season 1, and instead of diarrhea—actually, no. That part was exactly the same.
So, this is a new thing we’re gonna try and do every week. We’ll just post some stuff that we’ve been enjoying—some of it Glee related, most of it not. If you don’t like it, fuck you, we’re gonna do what we want.
Sorry, that got kind of aggressive for really no reason.
The season premiere is an important episode for any TV show. It’s the time to remind viewers of old themes, and to introduce them to the new. The first episode sets the feel for the rest of the season. So how did Glee start this season?
As you may know, Glee’s third season starts tonight, and so this blog continues to exist. We’ve been putting a bit of work into the blog over the past couple of days. We put up a new Mission Statement that we feel better reflects the blog, and we’re in the process of migrating to a new comment system: Disqus. It’s a very popular system (for instance, The Onion uses it), and will give us some new features to play around with, as well as providing an easier commenting experience. We’re in the process of importing the old comments into Disqus, so they may take a little while to show up. So don’t send us any mean emails about it. We’re on it.
Here we are, at the final, much dreaded Nationals episode, set in New York City. The opening shot captures this feeling perfectly with a long, drawn out panning shot of all the advertising in Times Square, the camera stopping on Rachel, who exclaims “I made it!”. That she did. She made it to Times Square, the destination of roughly 40 millions tourists each year. Congrats, Rachel. Your hard work has finally paid off in the form of a school sponsored trip.
With a week to go until Nationals, this episode begins with the Glee Club hiring Jesse St. James as a show choir consultant. As close as we can tell, his main role with the club is to say and do all of the things that Sue normally would if she were not busy being a sympathetic character. After the death of her sister, Sue becomes reformed at the end of this episode and vows to never attack the Glee Club again. This completes the trifecta. Now, all three writers have written an episode where Sue becomes good and supportive of the Glee Club after a crisis. Brad Falchuk did it in the first season’s finale. Ian Brennan did it in this year’s Christmas episode, and now Ryan Murphy has done it. This realization gives credence to the theory that the writers may just be playing games with each other and just screwing with their millions of fans. This is the only theory on this show that would allow us to have any respect for it.
This episode, as you may have deduced from the title, is all about McKinley High’s prom. Not the actual prom, mind you (that would mean one of these 40 year old actors would have to graduate this season), but the junior prom. With all this hullaballo over the Junior Prom, it kinda makes us want to see what’s going on over at the Senior Prom. That shit has gotta be off the hook!
Ever since Moses came down from the mountain in the last episode, excuse us, ever since Kurt returned from Dalton he has been a completely perfect, nearly supernatural character. Well, in this episode that was all thrown on its head and Glee fans faced the stunning possibility that Kurt may have a flaw. Of course, it turns out to be a misunderstanding and Kurt was actually being perfect the whole time. Basically, its like when the Bible seemed to indicate that Jesus was fudging some numbers on his income taxes when he was actually just curing a tax collector of his wickedness.
Of course you are. We're on facebook too. Let's be creepy internet friends.
