No Conspiracy in "Glee"

Emily , I love when you get conspiratorial. Here are my couple of problems with your theory. If Fox did screw us in the end, they also turned the joke on themselves. The judges making the decision were parodies of Fox types-a slick, dumb anchorman and an even dumber beauty queen. Also, the ultimate end was no confirmation of heartwarming Fox family values. Neither of the two marriages is saved. Will looks into his wife's eyes and sees ... nothing, and then runs into the arms of Emma. I love watching Glee , but I recognize that most of the time it's completely incoherent, and I think that's true of its politics too. So no conspiracy here, I'd say.
