"Wheels" is another fine episode from the first season of "Glee"
7 October 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this episode of "Glee": Artie, the handicapped one in a wheelchair, is the focus of a charity in which his fellow glee-mates are assigned to figuratively be in his shoes as they all mostly do without walking while also having a bake sale to pay for a bus to take them all to sectionals. Kurt, through his dad, forces an audition for a "Wicked" number which was originally going to be performed solo by Rachel. And Sue, having cut Quinn from her Cheerios due to her pregnancy, auditions for a new team member. Her choice proves to be quite surprising and we later find out why...This was one of the most touching and entertaining eps of "Glee" ever though there still are some good funny bits that keep things from getting too sentimental. I can't believe I waited for a year to watch this. Anyway, kudos to everyone involved. I'll review another episode soon...
