The Televangelist: 'Glee' Season 1, Episode 14

Our Gleeks won sectionals, so do they now rule the school? NO! And Rachel Berry has a slushy-stained training bra to prove it!

Our Gleeks won sectionals, so do they now rule the school?  NO! And Rachel Berry has a slushy-stained training bra to prove it!  "Hell-O" played out like a mini movie: people got together, broke up, and moved on to the tunes of five performance pieces, all in 47 minutes.  And the greatest news had nothing to do with Finn and Rachel or Will and Emma - it was the much anticipated return of Sue Sylvester, and her reinstatement as head of the Cheerios.

Despite a months-long hiatus after airing 13 episodes in the Fall, "Glee" returned last night to kick off nine more episodes to complete Season One rather than start fresh with a Season Two.  FOX is known for long seasons, but as Season Two has already been ordered at a whopping 25 additional hours, I cannot help but raise a questioning brow over how long this formula can really last.  "Glee" straddles a difficult line between farcical fantasy and high school drama - and I think most fans would prefer it restrict itself more to the former.  Recently, some parent councils have taken offense to "Glee" being portrayed as a family show - it's not, and shouldn't even pretend to be.  It's a show about kids for adults (and to be honest, most of the actors playing the kids ARE adults).
