Consider this the Madonna episode without the really cool music. GLEE tackles Britney Spears, but what’s immediately evident is her imprint on pop culture is more about fashion and style, rather than substance. It’s a debate raged in this episode “Britney/Brittany.” Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) hates Spears and what she stands for, as do other students, but some of them want to express their inner Britney.
The Season Two premiere of GLEE turned out to be a mixed bag. Storywise, “Audition” had a laser focus, a mission. It achieved it in an interesting way and it shifted and moved some important story pieces around so characters could continue to grow and learn.
