Chris Colfer is a huge fan of dogs and old people, and he proved it with last night's Glee. The actor actually wrote the penultimate episode of Season 5 and combined the two things he loves most.

Last night, Glee proved that romance is dead or at least on this show. "I Do" might've been the most sexually-charged episode of the entire series. There were all types of hookups between old and new lovers, strangers and girlfriends. At some point, we thought we were watching Gossip Girl.

Published by

Glee Super Bowl Episode
The "Glee Super Bowl" episode -- It just sounds wrong, doesn't it? Of all the shows in its repertoire, FOX made the bold, ironic choice to air "Glee" after the biggest, testosterone-fueled sporting event of the year. And THANK GOD, because I was just bored enough by time "The Sue Sylvester Shuffle" came on to think it was any good... at first.
