1 / 10 The first ever episode of [b]'Glee'[/b] was undeniably great: well-written, smart, funny television that built up to the cast take on the phenomenon that was and still is ‘[b]Don’t Stop Believin’[/b]’.

Since that first episode, it’s been a steady stream of increasingly unappealing gunk, with this being superfluous egg number 3,203,674 in the [b]'Glee'[/b] cake mix. I played this to a toddler, and he started crying instantly. It was, I believe, his way of saying: “I was into the early shit, but they’ve just sold out now, man.”
