    That bugged me. I wish the show would at least use some realistic substitutes for an instant band. Steel trash cans? And where did the other guy with the other guitar come from? Well, even so, I liked that song the best of the show.

    Obviously Puck was intending on doing this when the went down there so he pre-arranged the instrumentalists. But it's also a running joke in the show that the musicians are just always there ready to play.

    To me it's better than showing no musicians at all, or turning on a boombox and getting a huge sound.

    I don't watch the show, so forgive me...but...

    There have been episodes of shows with "gay themes" pulled from some network affiiiates, and as far as I know, all of 'em have been in the south. The one that comes to mind is from my former home market:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WSET-TV#Once_and_Again_controversy

    WSET's general manager went to Falwell's Liberty Baptist Church (as did half of Lynchburg) and was reportedly friends with Falwell.

    There have been other incidents of such pre-emptions, but they appear to be somewhat limited. It seems that one or two stations do this each time, they're different stations depending on the circumstance, and the vast majority of southern network affiliates will run the shows as sent.

    I'm sure it happens, my issue is that he's shocked it didn't. It is NOT the norm, and even in the south things have changed a bit in the in the last few years.

    I did mention that to my wife as we were watching. "Where did the steel drums come from?"

    You guys are only complaining about the drums? How about the fact they were playing for money at a high school?

    I thought it was funny, the words they were singing vs Puck going around making the kids give $$ under threat of pain.

    I thought the music was great... the two mashups, the Puck/Artie song, and Teenage Dream were really well done. I wish they did more mashups.

    The thing I found most amusing about Puck's song was that I never knew that Bob Marley was jewish. :D

    enjoyed the teenage dream song.. but:

    it's an odd choice of song for an all boys school glee club, if they aren't all gay

    I do believe that teenage girls dream, as well.

    Except they were singing to the rest of the student body of their all-boys school.

    That makes absolutely no sense. When a group/band/singer perform they sing a song about a subject not TO a particular audience. It's like saying Katy Perry can't sing this in concert because there are girls in the audience :confused:

    I enjoyed the performance as a straight guy. Why can't others? They were practicing, after all.

    Saw this show, Glee for the first time. I like it.

    Same here, I knew an homophobia bully from my high school in AZ back in 1980's. Recently I found him in Facebook and friend with him. I was surprised that he's opened gay.

    I enjoyed the performance too. I'd never heard the song and thought it was quite catchy the way they did it acapella.

    But as I listened to the words, I thought it was pretty obvious that the song was originally sung by a female star. No reason a guy or a group of guys can't sing it, but the lyrics don't sound like something a guy would write or sing.
