    Ok, I’m just watching/listening this episode… Bad idea as I’m trying to finish one of my assignements. Anyway, I’m laughing quite hard. I’m sad though i missed the live thing.

    I like the relation Marley and her mother have but I do not think this episode was realistic at all. If you have a skinny daughter who is going through eating problems, you don’t say her let’s go on a diet, do you? I was just confused and sort of pissed off. You are totally right this is the one thing people still are comfortable when laughing at.

    I have to say I am starting to actually like glee again and I think the new york plot has been a clear improvement.

    One side comment. Sam was supposed to be dating Mercedes, or at least didn’t have a closure to their relationship. This hasn’t been adressed not even once in this episode. I don’t know, it’s just weird for me, but correct me if I’m wrong. Either way, I know it is Glee!

    Thank you guys for doing this… You are awesome!

    This was such a good idea for you guys to do this live! I feel so awesome, because you read my comments like five times. I think that anybody who participated in the live podcast will feel like they were a part of the episode this week. :)

    So, I don’t remember if you did this in this episode, but in the previous one I heard someone reference the character of Unique as “him/he” multiple times. I know that no one was trying to be offensive, but it irked me a bit when I kept hearing it, since Unique clearly identifies as a female and the general rule is to use the pronoun a trans person identifies as. I know many characters on Glee do this, but since it’s mostly the likes of Finn and Sue talking to or about Unique, I wouldn’t use them as credible sources. I was also doing some reading, and I know some trans people have been really bothered by people on the show misgendering Unique. If in the future, you guys could try to make an effort to use “she/her” when referring to the character, I, and probably other listeners, would appreciate it. Also, I hope I’m not coming off too critical or PSA-y. I really do love listening to you guys, and this was a good episode!

      I personally, at least when I do the recaps, refer to Unique as ‘her’ and use ‘him’ when addressing other people’s perspectives when they’re referring to Wade.

    Hey Glee Chat! Aww I thoroughly enjoyed the live episode!

    I have to comment about the newest episode (4.7 Dynamic Duets) which is probably my favourite Glee episode ever! I really relate to Rider as a character. That scene when he was getting tested on his dyslexia and after he had a conversation with Fin I totally broke down and cried. All throughout my schooling I felt ashamed and didn’t understand why I couldn’t keep up with the rest of my class. I didn’t fully understand what dyslexia was because no one really told me and I was too ashamed to ask. So I felt dumb, worthless and insecure. But you see now I know that I don’t have low IQ, my brain just learns things differently from everyone else. So I really relate to what Rider is going through!

    I still struggle with my writing and spelling occasionally but I’ve improved so much because I am more confident in myself.

    Anyways thanks for the podcast! You guys are awesome!

    Every time you guys refer to Unique as HE or Wade I cringe. She has made clear she identifies as female, and you are all disrespecting this every time you say other wise.
