“The Fox (What Does the Fox Say),” Season 5When Glee misses the mark,
it throws the dart at least 10 feet away from the target. Case in point: Two of
the show’s all-time worst performances from the same ill-advised episode
revolving around Blaine and his new “friends.” Like many song choices in the
first half of Season 5, the New Directions chose to cover this viral sensation
right when it hit peak saturation, aka when everyone was utterly sick of it.
Even worse, it was a sheer copycat, offering nothing new, and had nothing to do
with the episode, or story lines, or anything. Plus: It featured
the glee club dressed as animals. All we can ask is why?!?!
