Season 5 begins when the school annual musical is going to happen and Gene's musical is not selected for the school's play despite of his enthusiasm. He decides to stage an underground show with the help of Louise.
Well, Loren Bouchard and the gang certainly delivered the goods by emphasizing the show's remarkable musical talent, the whip crack wit of the scriptwriters, and the strange charm of all the characters within.
Apart from Tina (who disappointedly wasn't greatly featured in the episode) Gene is one of my favorite characters on the show. He's an unabashedly optimistic drama queen and I can't help but love that.
