The other thing I really didn't get was that if Sunshine was supposedly bringing all her twitter followers where the heck were the Glee Parents?! Would they not support their own kids?! Poorly done episode all around.
It's the first episode I can remember where there were no group numbers at all. And hardly any story at all -- I think it was just a set-up for next week's episode.
Like all the rest of you, I was really disappointed. And I am one of the biggest gleeks ever, and not usually inclined to criticize.
I fell asleep. Twice -- when it was on for real, AND while watching it back on DVR.

@ Ellen. Sounds like me, though it doesn't seem to matter what I'm watching, whether good, bad, or indifferent, it seems I can sleep through it.

Ok...the last Glee for the most part was pretty bad. But there were a couple of bright spots...Brittany on the quiz bowl team was priceless..."Feline diseases" And I also enjoyed Santana sticking up for Kurt and Blaine. And finally, I would really like to see more of Shue and Emma. Their scene together was cute. The rest of the show was a mess. But I think that's a big part of what's been missing since the early days of Glee....the "adult" storylines that are separate from the kids. I loved when both generations had their own stories (and I'll admit it...I'm still waiting for Shue and Emma to finally get it together ) Recently Glee had been showing signs of getting back to being really good...I'm holding out hope for next week and that it will get back on track.

As the parent of a former "mathlete" whose team made it in the nationals and traveled all over the country (they even had a "tour" t-shirt made!), I was glad to see that kind of club recognized. And loved that they had their specialist in feline diseases!

I found this episode confusing (although that may be because I fast forwarded through so much of it).
So....at the beginning of the season Sunshine went to Vocal Adrenalin. But at regionals she was nowhere to be seen and Sue was the coach. Now, Sunshine is back with them and the guy is now the coach again? Is that right or have I just been fast forwarding through too many episodes?
I agree that this episode was a mess. And while I appreciate that Glee wants to make a statement about a lot of social issues that affect teens, I did not enjoy the lengthy sermon by Paltrow's character about bullying. That scene just lacked imagination. The writers would be well served to go back to the basics of "show, don't tell" or in this case, "show, don't preach."
