Oh, Glee. Why do you do this to me?
There are so many reasons why I love you, and for balance, I will start with them. You brought me:
- Heather Morris's and Harry Shum Jr's dancing.
- Naya Rivera's amazing acting and singing.
- Amber Riley's and Lea Michele's singing.
- An example of what not to do after a barrage of insults.
- Cory Monteith's excellent 'wah?' face.
- The strength to be totally honest about my own sexuality and to ignore anyone who has a problem with it.
- Brittany's absolute acceptance of her own bisexuality.
- The story arc of Brittany and Santana's relationship.
- Dianna Agron's all round awesomeness.
For these things and more, I love you so much, and I will find it almost impossible to stop watching you, because every time I give up on you, you reel me back with either a fantastic cover or out of the blue fantastic storytelling.
However, I simply can't ignore your retelling of the story of New Directions by making Artie the hero of the piece.
The reason? Him being in a wheelchair meant he had time to focus on things other than being a football stud so he had time for Glee, thereby having a knock on effect on every other characters' lives, as presented in the 'It's a Wonderful Life' segment of the Glee Season 4 Christmas special.
A thousand times no.
I'll address the 'points' you made in that segment of the episode as I see fit.
