Jane Lynch did rage out of control quite handily, however.
This is the point I keep trying to raise (IMHO, of course, but I know I'm not isolated in this view). The show is mostly great but it skews off when the show turns into a traditional
musical. It's one thing to have people perform, but when it's a "Grease" style musical (the black lady's number about breaking the windshield, and this Can't Hurry love) it is awkward and completely ruins the rhythm of the show.
Glee is good because we've got drama, comedy, and the people on it performing (as much as I got sick of that Nelly song "Must be the money" when it got overplayed on the radio, I enjoyed the glee club secretly having a jam session with it). It's at its worst when it tries to have traditional musical numbers like the ones I mentioned.
