Fondue For Two And Other Lessons From Glee
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Tuesday night, audiences witnessed Brittany Pierce as she performed an original song affectionately entitled “My Cup.” However, when Heather Morris’s character isn’t busy writing these songs, she’s making her own Internet talk show dubbed “Fondue for Two.” Brittany effortlessly combines her two favorite things in life: hot cheese and talking to people. While this idea seems harmless on the surface, it created some serious repercussions. Brittany accidentally drops the line “I’ve heard that Santana plays for the other team, and I can definitely confirm that’s true.” While the guests on the show didn’t understand that she was revealing that Santana was a lesbian, this episode of Glee serves as a clear lesson both for one’s personal life both on and off of the Internet.

First, Brittany created trouble in her relationship with Santana. In previous episodes, Santana stated that her orientation was something she wanted Brittany to keep private. Two lessons can be drawn from this situation. First, Glee teaches that information like sexual orientation is best not revealed to students. At schools, teachers and guidance counselors serve a purpose, and many times instead of seeking advice or shelter from their peers, students should take advantage of their teachers to receive help with difficult situations. Second, this episode serves as a reminder that one should be careful of who they share information with. Brittany had the previous reputation of gossiping. Santana should have thought her actions through before revealing this secret to Brittany. These two lessons show us that at school, information can travel rapidly, and if a student wants true help, they should seek the help of a teacher or counselor, rather than a student.

While “Fondue for Two” had the makings to be a great show, it also serves as a learning tool. Brittany’s actions highlight how Internet usage can have negative impacts. First, Brittany shows the audience how poor judgment when using the Internet can harm relationships. Brittany had an innocent goal, to talk to people, but when she used the Internet to spread gossip, it quickly backfired. Clearly, it’s imperative to truly think about what one is posting. Second, this incident can serve as a reminder of how beneficial the Internet truly is. The Internet is a wealth of information with many opportunities for online learning. Instead of taking the time to post inappropriate information of the Internet, Brittany had the chance to learn and to educate others. In an era where many online learning opportunities exist, ranging from online classes to informative videos, Brittany could have interviewed others to learn about their cultures or experiences. Not only would she have benefited from this, but those who watch her show would have as well.

While Glee is seen as a source of entertainment, it also reveals valuable lessons about school, relationships, and Internet usage. While these lessons came from one specific episode, the series as a whole teaches students so much more about these subjects. While the show is humorous, “Fondue for Two” really is a way to learn online.
