Our beloved Glee has a lot going for it. It’s catchy, goofy, creative, deliciously melodramatic, and doesn’t seem to take itself too seriously. I will always be a loyal viewer. But even I – ardent fan that I am – have to admit that Glee has its flaws. Many of the originally beloved cast members have moved on, the half Lima/half New York structure is more than a little awkward, and the plot lines have become increasingly wacky. So really, Glee seems to have a kind of dual identity. There’s some very good, and there’s some not so good. It’s a delightful, genius/disaster mash-up (not the Bon Jovi/Usher kind of mash-up). Nowhere is Glee’s split personality of quality and crazy more evident that in its couples. Some can be looked upon as the symbols of dedicated, passionate, admirable, or romantic love, while others… are just a mess. So, in celebration of Glee’s beautiful, contradictory, good-and-bad nature, let’s take a look at some it’s best and worst couples.
