Storyline

Will forms the Acafellas, an all-male acapella vocal group, and spends more time building his own confidence than he does with the glee club. In Will's absence, the glee club decides to hire a well-known choreographer to help coach them to Nationals. Meanwhile, Mercedes is bitten by the love bug, but her feelings aren't reciprocated. When the Acafellas perform for the P.T.A., they get a surprise visit backstage from Josh Groban. Written by Fox Publicity

Trivia

Acafellas is a fairly common name for male a cappella group, both at the professional and student level - there are Acafellas in Daytona Beach, Ottawa, Loyola University, Muhlenberg College, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Alfred University and more - and most of these groups pre-date Glee by at least five years.

Goofs

Just before the "Bust Your Windows" segment Mercedes throws a rock at the windshield of Kurt's Escalade. The rock goes right through the glass into the car. The windshields of all contemporary cars (like Kurt's) would not behave that way. These windshields are made of laminated glass that cracks but does not break so easily, and would not allow a rock thrown from a few feet away to penetrate it. See more »

Acafellas is an episode that brings "Glee" back on track
24 September 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This episode of "Glee" was a much better improvement after the slightly uneven last one. Will tells his parents about his wife's "pregnancy" (we found last week she really wasn't expecting, she just thought she was and hasn't told her husband yet). Rachel, at the instigation of the Cheerios, tells Will the glee club needs a certain choreographer. And the previous glee club teacher returns and wants in the new choral group formed of school faculty called Acafellas because of his e-mail contacts with Josh Groban who's attending one of their concerts...There's more to the plot than that but I just want to say that the situations and lines are the best I've seen and heard of this new series yet! And the numbers are once again synced perfectly after some of last week's musical sequences got bogged down by too much production. Besides Groban, it was also a treat to see Victor Garber as Will's father though a bit of a letdown he didn't sing either since he's so good when he warbled in Godspell (back in 1973 when he was young and had long curly hair!) and the recent television version of "Annie" which was directed by Rob Marshall. I'm now gonna watch the episode that aired after this one...
