Glee Review: Making a Comeback! (2/16/2011)Matt, I think you are way too hard on Kurt, and by extention Ryan Murphy. Not all gay men have an "agenda". Ryan Murphy saw a need to creste a storyline about bullying because gay bashing in particular was in the news. He has the proper audience and forum to do that. He does not just comment on gay bullying, he addresses all bullying. They all get teased and slushied for being "losers". This was just a hot topic at the time and a sorely needed topic of discussion. Kurt was originally cast as a comic relief character. Ryan Murphy actually created the role for him after Chris's audition. Comic relief characters are suppose to be scene stealers. The fact that Chris can act out dramatic scenes as well is a credit to the actor. Finally, this is an ensemble cast. It has a lot of characters and they do an excellent job at including everyone. Being happy that there was no Kurt in the episode is like being happy there is no cheese on a pizza. The pizza tastes better because of the ingredients, much like this show is better with all of the Glee club represented.
