Best Camp Number of the Season

Okay, Glee takes the cake for the campiest, most hilarious show on television right now. This send-up of ordinary high school cliches (the final moment of the big football game of the entire high school season) is one reason the show is so good; other episodes have sent up the cheerleader’s car wash; the over-zealous show choir; and the teacher’s dreams of small stage-fame.

Last night’s clip perfectly skewered Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”. I love the fact that the show doesn’t take itself too seriously:

Glee‘s creator, Ryan Murphy, created another great television show, Nip/Tuck, about the absurdness of plastic surgery. I’m in love with this show, and not just because I’m a recovering theater musical nerd.

    Glee makes me think that mainstream TV still has a soul, even if it’s buried deep deep deep under worn-out reality TV concepts and laugh-track sitcoms.
