Thursday on Utah TV: It's another schizophrenic episode of "Glee"

In this week's episode of Glee (8 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13), grads spend Thanksgiving trying to get the glee club ready for sectionals.

Eight episodes into Season 4, one thing has become absolutely clear. Producer Ryan Murphy & Co. should have either made this a show about what's happening in New York or restocked the cast and continued as a high school-centric show. This bifurcation isn't genius, it's a failed attempt to have your cake and eat it too.

Of course, it might have helped if the new characters weren't just clones of the old characters. Sigh.
