One of Glee’s strongest episodes this season is the Artie-centric Wheels, the 9th episode of the season. In it, the show examines Artie’s sense of always being on the outside just a bit, even within the accepting environment of the Glee club. This cover is ridiculously well chosen, and the jazz showtune feel of the rendition by Kevin is a fun new take on an old classic.
The episode always makes me choke up a bit, both when Artie and Tina have their final conversation over Artie’s reality and the subplot of Kurt and his father. When you add in Sue’s unexpected actions, it’s such a strong episode that, for me, it sets one of the bars for the entire series in terms of more serious scripts.
