“Glee” captures raw emotion in “Furt” episode
By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: “Glee” had me reaching for the Kleenex last night. The episode, titled “Furt,” was so good, so emotional, so satisfying.
It dealt with bullying and interwoven was a beautiful wedding and a well-written role for a famous guest star.
Here were some of the highlights for me:
In the wedding reception scene (Kurt’s dad married Finn’s mom) when Finn made a speech about having his brother’s back from now on then sang to him and danced with him, the tears rolled out and didn’t stop until we were well into the commercial break. God it was beautiful.
There were several high other points in the episode which dealt with Kurt being bullied by football player Dave Karofsky (Max Adler) who is gay himself and kissed Kurt a few weeks back.
Early in last night’s show there were some very positive actions in the way that others in the school reacted to Kurt being bullied, Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) immediately took action when he witnessed the bullying; Kurt’s friends in Glee club confronted the bully in the locker room and Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch), as principal, expelling the bully from school.
Says Sue: “Lady, this kid lays a finger on you, you come straight to me and I will expel him faster than a Thai take-out place can read back your delivery order.”
Kurt tells Sue that he doesn’t to be called Lady. She says in a soothing tone: “I’m sorry. I thought that was your name. As an apology, I’ll allow you to choose from the following nicknames: Gelfling, Porcelain or Tickle-Me-Doughface.”
