After a noticeably long absence from the show, Dr. Carl, aka John Stamos, returned to Glee for more than a mere mention in this week's installment, appropriately titled 'Sexy.' John Stamos is sexy, make no mistakes (and it takes a Stamos to know a Stamos).
Whether he's rocking a bouffant and banging on the drums or stuck behind a student's desk bemoaning his lack-of-sex-life, there's no denying that Stamos has still got it.
Admittedly, it was somewhat disappointing to see that the real guest star of the episode was Gwyneth Paltrow's Holly Holiday - reprising her role to give the confused students (and teachers!) of McKinley High some much-needed sex ed. In fact, one of the biggest shockers came when Dr. Carl requested Miss Holiday's services for himself and his lovely bride Emma, because yes - after all this time they have yet to do the deed. Poor Dr. Carl. Good thing Miss Holiday - not a real doctor, by the way - brought the issue to light, as it forced Emma to reveal her confused feelings regarding Mr. Shue, leaving Carl no choice but to head to the Radisson - signifying the likely end of their short-lived nuptials. We'll say it again - poor Dr. Carl. Let's hope the Radisson offered room service.
Sadly, this wasn't anywhere near as glorious as Stamos' previous appearances on Glee, however we'll take what we can get. Watching him sing and act as drummer for "Afternoon Delight" was, for lack of a better term, a true delight. Furthermore, we like a man who takes initiative so it was nice to see him reach out to Miss Holiday for some sex-counseling. I have no idea how Emma was able to resist that man for four months of marriage (FOUR MONTHS!). If this is it for Carl and Emma, he'll truly be missed.
What's next for John Stamos? I suppose there's a chance he'll pop up on Glee again, but we know he'll grace our TV screens this April, thanks to a guest-starring role in an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU. He's also been rumored to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men (please, John, turn that down, I don't think I can stomach writing a "Stamos on Stamos" for every episode of that show). But, in case he's looking for work, I'd like to make another plea for the televised version of Stamos vs. Stamos.You never know John, it could be a goldmine.
