If we had a dollar for every time somebody took off their shirt, flashed some skin, or dropped trou in tonight’s Glee Season 4, Episode 12: “Naked” — well, we wouldn’t be here right now. We’d be off buying ourselves one very expensive and gourmet hamburger for dinner. (What? We haven’t had dinner yet. We’re hungry.)
Speaking of hamburgers, the men of McKinley were more or less treated as pieces of meat during tonight’s episode, made to strip down in all sorts of sexy-but-uncomfortable (also: slightly degrading) shirtless poses.
Look, we love that the New Directions are trying a creative new way to raise money for Sectionals, but does it really have to be done like this? If these were high school girls we were objectifying, people would be up in arms. But objectifying high school boys? No big deal.
Then we have the whole Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) topless debacle. Being willing to go topless in a NYADA student film. My, little Rachel is growing up fast! We’re not sure that her high school self would approve. In fact, Old Rachel even makes a mystical, dream-like appearance at NYADA to tell her as much... in song.
A Rachel Berry vs. Rachel Berry duet? Perfect. Please keep these coming, Glee. The split-screen, Parent Trap-style camera angles are one of our favorite things.
You’ve seen the episode, now we want to know what you think. Did Glee’s “Naked” live up to all your expectations?
