Glee Blame It On the Alcohol - The Show Takes a Stance on Teen Drinking (Video)Emma Brady
Glee blame’s it on the alcohol and took a swing at the issue of teen drinking in tonight’s aptly named episode “Blame It on the Alcohol.” When Rachel’s dads hit the high seas to enjoy a Rosie O’Donnell family cruise leaving Rach behind, the crew from the glee club takes advantage to throw one kicking party. Some booze makes it way into the mix and you’ve got the recipe for disaster — a bunch of tipsy teens making poor choices!

Each gleek falls into the usual drinking cliches – Rachel is the needy drunk, Santana is the weepy drunk, and Brittany is (of course) the drunk who likes to take off her clothes. To drive the relevant message about teen drinking home, the crew actually attempts to perform post-party with some very negative effects. While the episode could have certainly turned preachy, the fabulous writers inserted the perfect Glee humor to keep it fun while driving home a pretty serious message.
