This video is amazing HAHA- I love your editing and storytelling style. My girlfriend had us watch glee over quarantine as well, and one thing that helped me get through all of it was her being like “Now remember babe. This is a satire.” constantly before and throughout the show LMAO. We never could finish the show because that level of secondhand embarrassment is tough to binge all at once, but knowing these wild things are intentional and making fun of similar shows and depiction of that culture is hilarious and made me at least respect it…kinda

You can tell that Glee started off as a really smart black comedy, but popularity and studio pressure to go more broad twisted it until it actually became an accidental parody of itself instead of the genre tropes and fans in later seasons.

Yeah, I loved the pilot.

It definitely hasn’t aged well, but glee was pivotal to me realizing I was a lesbian. There’s something to be said for how every lgbt character in the show had an awkward, messy coming out, because that’s how it is irl.

I felt like the first season was meant to be darkly humorous—like Election with Reese Witherspoon & Matthew Broderick. However, clearly people missed the purposely dark humor, made it super popular (because singing with high school stereotypes always works), and became earnestly progressive in problematic ways.

what you say at 17:10 really hit the nail on the head. Glee didn't know what kind of show it wanted to be, and it suffered for it. this only got worse as the seasons went on. there's a lot of potential there and even some truly brilliant moments, but there's just so much YIKES in between.

One thing I found really weird was how the teachers were well aware that the kids were regularly getting slushies thrown on them but it was framed as something they just had to deal with rather than something people should be punished for Also slight tangent but is it normal in US schools for cheerleaders to wear their cheerleading outfit all the time? Doesn’t it get sweaty and gross?

They would wear them before game days. Given that they'd cheer for multiple different team sport, and maybe wear them before their own cheer compactions too they probably did wear their uniforms to school more frequently than any other sport did.

I don't know about other schools, but at our school the cheerleaders would wear them throughout the school day, depending on the events happening. However, it wasn't a school uniform.

@InkHeart17 Yeah knowing a few band kids back then that's how it seemed. A few of them did sports freshmen year, but if you wanted to keep doing band after that you pretty much had to give up on all other extracurricular activities. I also remember most of them really only wanted to do jazz band, but the band director wouldn't let them be in it unless they also did marching band and all the other band competition stuff.

One of the most popular guys in my school was in the acapella group (only the very best were allowed in, everyone else had to join normal choir) as well as a star football player. And he was Asian. Breaking all kinds of stereotypes, he was. There is a bit of truth of “i can’t sing and do sports” because it takes a lot of commitment to be able to do both very well, given how much homework and other responsibilities you have to juggle in your teen life, but people extrapolate that to mean that if you do sports you’re somehow physically incapable of singing and vice versa, or that being a singer is gay or some shit. Singing is not feminine. It’s universally a gender neutral activity. 🙄

@kay mills sorry I wasn't clear, I was talking about tropes in movies or entertainment. Typically portrayed in traditional media the nerd has an awful time in school, and is bullied but the light at the end of the tunnel is the success they can expect in adulthood. In the real world there are patterns and things you can see, but for the most part no individual falls into a "trope".

@Michael Adams the geek turned successful adult trope is bit outdated, at least in America. There are plenty of academically intelligent kids that peaked in jhs/h.s, that don’t do “well”in adulthood. It could be that they weren’t stimulated and motivated to do better, or realizing that in a room full of other smart kids they are actually a bit average so they don’t know how to cope(me hehe), or (and I think this is most candidates) their degrees mean nothing in this economy.

The only good characters who were genuine and didn’t give me any conflicting feelings were Kurt and his dad. Kurt’s dad was so wholesome, and even when he didn’t fully understand Kurt being gay, he always tried his hardest to understand and even stood up for him. More hot takes no one asked for: Brittany was a great character and fun to watch despite being such a small part, Santana wasn’t likable at all but her coming out story made her a bit more likable, and (get ready for this one) AT FIRST I liked Rachel… mainly because of her passion for performing… then I realized oh she’s narcissistic so it’s hard to watch her most times. It’s so conflicting bc you wanna root for her but then she does the dumbest things and you literally just can’t (same with the rest of the characters tbh).

Speaking of comedies finding a younger audience during the pandemic... I don't think many aspects of the hugely popular series "Friends" has aged well - especially when it comes to issues of consent, mental health, homosexuality, etc. Then again, I never watched it during its initial run when I was actually young, and I am now binging the hell out of it as a 50-something gay, bipolar, abuse surviving adult who finds it funny as hell.

I personally think Friends is a product of it's time to a higher degree than other sitcoms in that era (or at least the ones I've watched). Frasier handled homosexuality in a way more nuanced way for example, and holds up. What also helps is that shows like Seinfeld and Frasier have less humour centered around punching (up or down for that matter) and more about good writing, which also ages better (since situations will always be relatable, while the socio-cultural context that a "punchy joke" might rely on, changes over time - missing a bus is still relatable, the end of the Cold War isn't)

I'd like to think this show isn't meant for us to "skip past" the horrible things the characters do but actually quite the opposite. In my mind Glee was always an extreme portrayal of awful people that do exist in the real world. It's not meant for us to sympathize with them but rather gasp at what they do and maybe find some truth in people that surround us. We should he horrified and we should also be aware that those kind of people do exist in our world lmao.

The idea that it's aged poorly is interesting. I guess it must seem that way to a lot of people since it targeted such a young fanbase but as an adult everything mentioned here was pretty obvious all along, and was mentioned in a lot of the writing about the show, which was during the years where multiple critics recapped shows every week. I feel like it would sort of be worth it to watch a little further than the season and a half that you did, the show was still relatively good through that period, but like all Ryan Murphy shows it started messy and just spiraled from there so by season 4 or so it had gone past glorious mess to just unwatchable, for me at least. It's amazing how it kept finding new depths.

No one at the school really mentioned it, even though I went there only around 10 years after the events that inspired Glee. Also crazy that Brennan was inspired by this horrible story of sexual assault and ..Glee.. came out of it.

Glee characters ranked by how much you should care about them: Sue: Yes she gets very unlikable sometimes but Jesus Christ Jane Lynch needs aspirin for carrying the show. Santana/Brittany and Kurt/Blaine: If you can power through 6 seasons of this crap you will understand that these 2 couples really carry the show. Mercedes and Sam: Dude you cannot understand the chemistry of this pair. Quinn and Puck: Boi they really carried that drama in the first season. Tina and Mike Cheng: Again, the payoff is good if you power through to season 6, but oh my god it’s painful to watch Tina Finn: I know the actor died before season 5 and I give him all the credit for his acting. But the writing doesn’t hide the fact that as more time goes on, the more you start to realize he’s not a goodie two shoes. Rachel and Will: Can we even explain this

I think you missed the fact that for at least the first 2 seasons this show was literally made to lampoon teen dramas and things like highschool musical. It wasn't until season 3 or so where the show started to become exactly what it was meant to be parodying. There is still some tone deaf and dated comedy but overall I think people over analyze and hate on this show when they don't even realize what was going on. You mention that every character at some point does something truly awful. Yeah. But the point is that if you look at all the stuff we watched as teens and just accepted as part of the character or the plot, lots of it was insane and awful and we just didn't think twice about it. Glee flips that type of stuff on its head and throws it in the watcher's face intentionally. It's actually a sort of genius show in its own right.

I mean, I'm only five minutes into this video, but I'm already thinking you have less of a problem with this show, and more of a problem with high schools in 2009. Teachers being oblivious to bullying, kids doing good but only for selfish reasons and teachers being pedos were all reality. The cripple comment was literally commentary on how dismissive and ableist schools can be. Glee probably does have a ton of problematic themes or jokes but it was one of the most inclusive and representative shows of its time.

I think you kinda miss the point of Glee: It is a satirical series, and they overexaggerate the characters and their problems. Glee is like a comedy/soap/musical. Imo, it's supposed to be absurd, more than realistic, and that's why I didn't find the characters creepy/weird etc. it was just a fun "wtf" show with throwback songs. Little to nothing in that series makes sense, and that's why it works. Tho the later seasons aren't up to par. I think it should have ended at season 3

@skinnymuching And thinking it's not good doesn't make it automatically bad if you "get it". I'd compare it to modern art. The average person don't view it as beautiful, but there are plenty that do, and appreciate it, and that's why it survives as an artform

@skinnymuching I do think that all opinions are valid, but not equal. It's the same when it comes to politics and lifestyles, or world views; there is no fasit/answer. Nobody knows what the "right" way to do something is. And since Glee is a series, which goes under: Art. Then all opinions on it is valid. Who knows or gets to say what good art is? Is it a matter of how many have the same opinion, or what opinions "experts" within the field have? Either way it is a fallacy since if it's about what the masses think: well if the majority of people say that something is "good" it isn't necessarily the case. The same goes if some of the few masters of the arts. The things that cannot be a matter of opinions is within science and mathematics, since theirpurpose is to prove their hypothesis.

@shadowilderness364 community did a ton of satire. It mocked Glee too. No one ever had an issue understanding the nuance. It’s always sunny is also a black comedy and is constantly satirizing things and being meta. Including multiple singing episodes. Again people aren’t constantly unable to “understand” it’s satire which isn’t even true. People are actually understanding it is satire. Being meta and satirical doesn’t make it automatically good if you “get it” (when everyone does)

@corvidmorgue it being a "horrible" show is subjective to the viewer. Just like how anyone can percieve any show as horrible. I think Friends and Seinfeld are horrible. Some people think Handmaids Tale is horrible. But the fact that it got many followings and many seasons might say it wasn't horrible to many.

I'm not the biggest Glee fan by any means. I've watched maybe a handful of episodes, however I think many people miss the fact that it's supposed to depict these characters as actual people who have good and bad qualities. The audience isn't supposed to root for them all the time. The jokes to me aren't even offensive. Family guy is way worse but nobody says anything about that show.

I think it is an interesting analysis. I did watch Glee for a few seasons before losing interest as the show seemed to drag out its premise, especially after the older kids graduated high school. I thought the writing could be uneven (especially around the time I stopped watching it), but I found the show to be reasonably decent, and for the time, something different. It was never my favorite, but it kept me entertained for awhile. I never thought Glee was intended to be an "after-school-special" type of show that hammered kids over the head with a heavy morality lesson. Rather, it was a slightly dark (but definitely not Heathers-dark), and very campy high school satire that still managed to have several moments of mean/misguided characters at least temporarily realizing the error of their ways. I also interpreted the general message of the show to be that you could be different and quirky, but if you remained focused and authentic things would eventually work out for the best. Also, I think many of the characters were supposed to be examples of how NOT to behave or treat other people. I never got the sense the show implied it was acceptable to bully anyone, cheat on anyone, or mistreat anyone--quite the opposite. I do seem to appreciate satire more than some people (even if Glee wasn't always the sharpest example of it), and I don't believe it has to come with flashing lights "THIS IS SATIRE," nor do I think writers of satire need to constantly remind the audience about their political stance or who the audience should be rooting for (it's okay to let the audience figure it out). Also, as long as they don't get repetitive or forever stay one-note, I enjoy watching funny mean characters (versus seeing mean behavior in real life) since I understand no one is actually being hurt, similar to how some people find catharsis in watching horror movies where lots of people get killed (versus actually condoning or enjoying real people being harmed).

the show hammers its moral messages hard but the zoomer needs content so he only shines light on the tools with which the moral messages are being propagated. while at the same time ofc adhering to these messages 100%. it proves how effective shows like Glee were with their moralism. the producers are all from religious backgrounds as well. naive zoomers, they really think they are the ones that are noticing things when all of this has been set up for them from the start :/

I only started watching Glee about halfway through the series but wow your comments about the Finn shower scene are making me realize how easily this pilot could be rewritten to be less problematic. Or at the very least, that scene: Have Schue look away and alert Finn of his presence as soon as he turns around so Finn can cover himself. Let them have an exchange where Schue tells Finn how good he is and offers him a glee club spot that Finn turns down. Swap the blackmail storyline/scene out for one of Finn at home, still thinking about the glee club offer and experiencing that flashback. And then he seeks out Schue (what Spanish teacher has their own office, anyway?) to tell him he'd like to join. Such an easy and obvious fix.

@Fat Cat not only that but the Glee member that called him the F slur was his soon-to-be step brother! Kurt’s dad could’ve easily taken the wrong step and sided with him to avoid problems with his fiancée, but he chose to defend & protect his son. Even when he didn’t understand much about what Kurt was going through or his experience as a gay man, he always tried to do what’s best for his son. That’s what the scene more memorable imo.

@Audrey M His main thing for me was being supportive when Kurt came out as gay despite not knowing much about LGBT stuff. There's a scene where Kurt gets called a slur by another Glee club member and his dad has one of the best angry monologues in the show. But generally, he's just a down-to-earth guy who tries his best to be kind to everyone, and his actor portrays that excellently.

I was around when Glee first premiered and I always thought it was incredibly mediocre. There were a few times I enjoyed their arrangements of songs but it literally just became running every pop song through the Glee machine so they all come out the same The problem is it thinks it's a dark comedy but it picks and chooses when to be sincere and when to be ironic, so there's absolutely no tonal consistency whatsoever. And the show frames characters like Rachel as the hero when they're clearly the worst character. Also Ryan Murphy is a complete hack writer who cannot write for shit. He's only capable of using bad one-dimensional stereotypes. I remember on that show The Glee Project he told a guy who wanted to play a nuanced gay character that he couldn't write for that because his whole personality had to be that he was gay. EDIT: Oh I forgot to say that Jane Lynch is the only good thing about this show. She steals every scene she's in.

I sorta assumed, and still assume, that most of the show’s jokes are sarcastic and dry humor. That said, it is a show marketed to children. Children cannot pick up on that. Lots of the scenes in glee could have been cut or rewritten. The stuff with Finn and Shu was totally not okay. I didn’t watch the later seasons but my younger sister said it gets worse

I've watched Glee all the way through twice now, and this video sums up the pilot in a great way, and in some ways I hadn't looked at it. I agree, Glee was absolutely batsh*t crazy a lot of the time, but very occasionally, they handled some issues pretty well. Some of the writing will always catch me very off guard at how sincere it is, and then *very sudden transition into instrumentless version of We Will Rock You* There's plenty of...not so great stuff too, but honestly if you're looking to yell at your TV and just kinda turn your brain off for a while, Glee is all right.

@lance turley what was particularly grotesque about all that was that Kurt was effectively trying to get Finn to "go gay." Considering how much homophobic bigotry is rooted in the notion that being gay is a choice. It not only makes Kurt seem like a creepy sex pest, but also like one of those guys who later becomes "ex-gay" and then starts being a spokesperson for homophobia. Worse, there was an earlier plot where one of the female characters was giving him a similar treatment. For all the supposedly progressive messaging the show has, the writers have some messed up ideas about sexual orientation.

Solid point and I couldn’t agree more. I mean look at Sunny, they made the characters awful and didn’t expect you to find them likable. It’s kind of the whole point. That’s what makes that show so brilliant. They know the characters are trash people so they throw everything at them and it is always hilarious. There’s a reason Glee is gone yet IASIP is on it’s 15th season and tbh it just keeps getting better.

I think part of it was because the early writing definitely seems aimed toward older teens & adults but the nature of it being about high schoolers and the marketing ended up aiming the show more toward pre-teens & young teens. The black comedy/“all the characters are awful” aspect is harder for that age to grasp in general so it ended up being that weird mix of parody and genuine that made the show so weird to watch. Honestly there were probably real negative impacts for some people that watched it when it came out but as an adult who watched it for the first time with no nostalgia attached, I think it’s definitely in the “so bad it’s fun” category.
