Less than Glee-ful
4 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode plumbed the depths of awfulness, unintentionally harming the cause it was trying to promote. How come a modern school wasn't fully accessible to wheelchair users? It was clearly written by someone who is non-disabled. The method of promoting "Disability Awareness" that was the backbone of the plot was redundant back in the 80's. Outdated words like "Handicapped" to describe a Disabled person (which I am) are the equivalent of calling an African American the N-word. And who on earth came up with the clumsy made up word "Handicapable"?? Lastly, to add cliché to Disablism, the subplot involving Sue was utterly predictable - although well-acted.

Must do better, Glee.
