How does a once-beloved show go from can’t-miss-TV, to ugh-ugh-ugh and back to the start again? You just need the right script.

Bringing in a polished script that alluded to backstory points, Colfer pleased pretty much every Glee fan who’d been on the fence about the show. Check out just a small handful of these tweets that explain why…

@TerryPie17: (20:36:39) chris is just slapping everyone with three years of forgotten continuity @chriscolfer #GleeAlong #OldDogNewTricks

@FrankenFert: (20:44:07) Amazing how an actor writes a glee episode better than the actual writers. So can they just hire him on as a writer too? Just saying #Glee
