So, yeah. Tonight's installment of your favorite musically inclined social satire and mine came complete with a theme, and let me tell you this right now: I hate themes.
"Confidence," or (far more often, as it turns out) the staggering lack thereof, runs through each of the disparate storylines this evening, primarily with Will, who experiences a personal crisis of faith in himself when Quinn and Things One and Two quite rightly point out that, as a choreographer, he pretty much sucks. Striving to feel better about himself, he enlists football coach Ken, Sheets And Things drudge Howard, the uniquely attired Sandy Ryerson, and McKinley High's thumbless shop teacher to form Acafellas, and the quintet of middle-aged boy band wannabes quickly finds unlikely success playing to the inebriated in Lima's local watering holes. Needless to say, Will immediately begins neglecting his Glee Club duties as a result, and Operation Just Cause veteran Sue Sylvester comes perilously close to realizing her goal of destroying the club once and for all. Fortunately, Will realizes the error of his ways after a contrived epiphany or two, and returns to McKinley's music room with a reinvigorated zeal and fresh sense of purpose.
