The Glee club is finally coming to an end and the members of New Directions say their farewells to Mr. Schuster. Rachel and Santana get to the core of their quarrels and sing it out in traditional Glee style.
A flaw even in this usually pretty flawless, fair show
Don't get me wrong. I like Glee, I like a lot about it but mostly that it is about fairness, but this is just the point why I have to take off a couple of points for this episode. One would have thought that it is possible to watch a show like Glee, which is so much about being correct, doing justice to everybody and condemning hostility and bullying without having to be afraid to be insulted AGAIN, that a just, friendly show like Glee would refrain from clichéd offensive bashing, but oops, in Season 5 it becomes clear that nobody, just nobody gives a damn about justice to Germans. They are the welcome scapegoat if a villain/negative example/whipping boy is needed. But apart from not being original or decent, it isn't even true/correct/just. Stating that Lesbos is overrun by Germans isn't even the whole truth,the true problem is/ it is mostly overrun by British tourists showing their worst behavior, but you do not want to bash the British, right? No, you want to offend the Germans like all other shows, because they are the easy patsies, they have "no" feelings/are not allowed to feel offended and hurt and being treated justly/correctly. And if there was a grain of doubt then this was washed away in episode 5-17 when the producers managed to sneak in a Nazi-remark into this musical high-school show!!! Unnecessarily rude like all the others. But, breaking news, the Germans are NOT your patsies/whipping boys to torture and misuse. And moreover: if you want to offend, check the facts first. But honestly: better do not offend anybody at all. And the times when that power-hungry AUSTRIAN came along and stirred things up are long gone and have been put on stage and thereby criticized AND avenged a billion times by each and every bungler or fool who doesn't even care about the facts but just wants to live out his hate (and target people who don't fight back). So stop, look for something else – and best: put your own house in order first / tackle your own problems for a change instead of using ancient stories and hurting innocent non-participants.
