Series 3 - 3. Asian F

Asian F
Radio Times
Review by:

Should Mike Chang (Harry Shum Jr) be given more lines/songs, or is he better off quietly dancing up a storm in the background? Word is he’s becoming much more prominent this year, and here Mike has a big story as he scores A-minus (an “Asian F”) on a chemistry test and is ordered by his father to leave New Directions and focus on studying.

Mercedes knows where her focus is. She’s fully recovered from her ex, Sam, being written out and is encouraged by her new boyfriend to compete with Rachel for the lead role in West Side Story. Wrap your glassware in two layers of tissue: it’s a sing-off!

About this programme

3/22. Mike Chang's parents demand he leave New Directions to focus on his studies after scoring an A- in a chemistry test, and Mercedes delivers an astounding audition performance for the part of Maria in West Side Story that results in a head to head against Rachel. Meanwhile, a new candidate enters the race for senior class president, and Will worries he is an embarrassment to Emma.
