We weren't fans of the Glee episode "Brittany/Britney" simply because it lacked any kind of cohesive storytelling.
But the Parents' Television Council has a very different reason for taking exception to the September 29 installment: it's appalled that Glee would honor someone with Britney's record.
In a post on its website, the PTC came down on the show for its "pandering tribute to toxic teen role model Britney Spears," adding:
"Perhaps most troubling is the deification of a troubled pop star into a symbol of empowerment and self-esteem. Considering her stints in rehab, her very public breakdowns and her questionable parenting skills, there is absolutely no way Spears should be considered a role model. The producers of the show can spare us the old song-and-dance about fallen celebs turning their lives around."
