I would say the charm of Glee was actually just how extreme things could go plot wise. The show is full of psychopaths, sociopaths, and generally awful people. Better yet, the show doesn't feel the need to balance the bad right away. It clearly works to keep folks engaged. I really am surprised it survived without any public backlash cancelling it. I mean Glee was nearly as hardcore as an adult comedy. Surprised teens got to watch it.

I'm pretty much convinced that the main reason glee lasted so long was the fact that many of their covers were honestly straight up bangers, so the popularity of that part of the show basically kept it afloat. Also parents probably didn't pay much attention and just knew that it was some high school show with lots of pop music that was being played on the radio

You remember that part later on where the gay kid intentionally manipulates his single father into dating the very, VERY straight boy's single mother for no reason other than wanting to be able to spend more time around the straight boy in order to convince him to try being gay, then when the obviously uncomfortable straight boy comes home to find their room (which they were forced to share against his will, by the way) completely rearranged and redecorated with out his knowledge or consent, he starts using some homophobic slurs to insult the gay boy, and then the straight boy is the one who 'learns a lesson' about tolerance and accepting others while the gay boy gets off with zero repercussions or even a single question about his incredibly disgusting and inappropriate actions? Good times, that.

As someone who was in high school when this aired in 2009 and was in a small town in the Midwest, a lot of the stuff that happened in the pilot isn’t far off from how things actually were then. Are they all awful and unacceptable? Yes. But sadly, teachers turning a blind eye to a gay kid or any kid that is “different” being bullied back then was a real thing. In my high school we had a history teacher figure out who the gay kids were and would specifically target them IN class and in the hallway. And the other teachers in the hall in neighboring classes never did a thing to stop him, at least in the 4 years I attended. All the funding for the cheerleading squad only? Also a real thing. We had two activities that got all the funding, as it was the only “claim to fame” my hometown has. That was the women’s soccer team and the marching band. And by the way, any sort of music activity is expensive: choreography, sheet music, transportation, lodging, etc. And this was in the middle and wake of the ‘08 crash. Budgets for the arts were a real problem, and it’s even referenced as a nationwide issue going on at that time in interviews with the Glee producer and writer. A lot of midwestern schools developed the pay to play policy because of the Great Recession. Which just exacerbated the issue. So Glee for as shitty as it was, was funny because of how accurate it was to life in a way. And everyone knew it was messed up, even then. That was why it was funny. It held up a mirror to us as a society as we were then. It didn’t age well because we as a society have grown. The same way a person may cringe reflecting on past behavior. The fact that this doesn’t past as muster anymore is a good thing. Edit: so on the topic of teachers being inappropriate with students - yeah, that happened a lot more than anyone wants to think. A good example of this being the case is that ticktoc trend a little while ago where a lot of millennials who would have been in high school around this time talk about the teacher everyone knew not to be alone with. And guess what? There were at least two of those in my high school. Is Glee over the top with some things? Yes But it also was pretty accurate to small town midwestern high school life. And I would argue the first season of Glee does a passable job at being a parody. It was after it became popular and started believing it’s own bullshit that it stopped being parody and started going off the rails. All this being said, I do not disagree with your assessment of Glee. What I am long windedly trying to say is you are forgetting the social context this show occurred in. And or you didn’t experience this exact context yourself, in which case you wouldn’t know some do these things. 2nd Edit: Yes Will is an awful teacher. That was kind of the point the show originally had. It told us point blank this average ex-high school choir nerd lies to his wife, is stuck in the past (he works at his old high school), and routinely talks and dreams about himself. That was the point. He was so wrapped up in his own bullshit. The show forgot that though as Glee went on. But it was pretty obvious that he was not meant to be a shining teaching example.

Funny, my wife discovered Glee in highschool, and being russian, it opened her eyes on so many things we take for granted in other countries, especially regarding the representation of minorities. 10 years later she considers that Glee was the main reason why she became so open-minded on these subjects.

I grew up as a preteen & teen when glee aired, I even considered myself as a gleek and had my fandom days for this show, too, and I braced myself through all 6 seasons. honestly during those times it aired, the show seemed to bounce back and forth to market it as a satirical comedy or an inspiring chase-your-dream media. and me as a teenager was more sold into the latter idea, they even had these segments where they introduced these irl people and their stories about what made glee so inspiring for them on their 3D concert movie. the more I rewatched it as an adult, the more I came closer to the conclusion of how messed up the whole show was

I've never seen this show, but it looks like the comedy is similar to "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia". It's supposed to be extreme and the whole comedic point is that they're awful people (or awful situations) who don't see that they're awful. It also touches on real life topics that a lot of people don't talk about. From watching this short video, I actually find the show pretty funny.

Okay, maybe it’s just me but i feel like most of the glee reviews are just… not getting the point? This show was meant to be heavily satirical about show choir and high school life in general. The characters were definitely not meant to be perfect and likeable all the time, Racheal was definitely one of the most hated characters even when the show aired so that’s not a new concept either. All the awfulness was supposed to make you cringe and laugh, bc that was the point. I understand that some people find certain things about the show a little weird or a bit awful but most of the analysis i see on the show completely misses the point of the show in the first place. It was never supposed to be just a feel good, innocent teen comedy. The awfulness was there on purpose.

I also don't like the shift to single companies controlling nation/worldwide areas of consumership at inflated prices.

You treat this show like any other show. It's a comedy that creates relatable situations but amps up the characters traits to level ten so we can learn from all the mistakes these histrionic, narccistic and problematic people make. Yet they are lovable because they do try to make up for their mistakes with generosity and love. We can all see how many times the principal ignores issues and believes the wrong person and goes on to get blackmailed multiple times. This is relatable. People like sue exist and it's scary. I love that these kids make mistakes but like a family move on from them and eventually help each other. It gives all is sinners some hope. It's not to condone the mistakes...may we learn something from the show but also learn to forgive these sort of situations. No one should be condemned except real life puckerman.

I will never have normal feelings about Glee. It got its hooks into me too young and too impressionable. Without it, I might have struggled a lot more to figure out my sexuality. So as much as I can look at it and see all the faults, the horrible missteps and truly awful later seasons, it will always have a place in my heart. But also, don't think that viewers at the time were foolish. We all knew and joked about how the characters were assholes and made terrible choices, but that doesn't mean they aren't interesting or without value. Rachel is an insufferable narcissist, but she asserts her worth and works her ass off. I couldn't stand her at the same time as I wanted to be her.

I remember when Glee came out and it was the first time I had seen a main character in a show who was gay, with Kurt. I believe the Single Ladies dance was the first thing I saw and I was like I need to watch this show 😂 I was a big theatre kid and it was cool to see performers in high school and a really diverse cast represented. I had also seen Lea Michele on Broadway in Spring Awakening and was a fan. But MAN did this shit age so poorly 😂

I can get behind the school teacher / student boundries thing. This is way outta line. But besides that, honestly, I miss shows where nearly every character is a horrible person. It creates a way more entertaining, saucy and dynamic atmosphere then most shows where everybody tries to be a PC superhuman and there are only like 2-3 antagonists that are obv. designed to be disliked by the audience. If you're familiar with Ryan Murphy's work, nearly in any of his shows, must of the lead characters (or all of em) are morally bankrupt.

The one thing it kind of got right was the spontaneous singing. You put a bunch of musicians of relatively equal skill level in a room with a piano, sit back, and watch. Not only will you get a free concert, but also the performers won't charge you; the magic they're making in that space comes from a passion for music, and you just happened to observe them You should have seen the band room my Senior year at lunchtime. Band and choir ate their lunch there, and rare was there a lunch period where a bunch of kids weren't seeing and playing instruments. There's a certain joy you get when you and another musician find yourselves in a spontaneous ensemble.

IIRC the show was intentionally trying to be irreverent to poke fun at the popularity of High School Musical. But then the show became super-popular and the executives pivoted it into being less of a satire, and it made the tone all over the place. I'm guessing some suit at Fox didn't "get it" and just wanted them to play it straight. It's like if Police Squad tried to be more like Law And Order. XD

I mean, I don't think anyone thought it was going to age well even at the time it was airing. I had to drop it a few episodes into the second season after it just got too obnoxious for me. I'll never forget how awkward and forced all those "message" or "issue" episodes felt, preaching kindness/tolerance/no bullying/etc., since Ryan Murphy is so clearly a bitchy mean boy at heart, and you could feel how he and the other writers were itching to get back to the comfortable norm of writing characters who are supposed to be friends being unforgivably nasty and awful to each other constantly, with no real emotional fallout. The only character I remember wielding that awfulness to genuinely comedic effect was Sue Sylvester - it just got exhausting from all the rest. I also recall the characterization feeling really spotty/inconsistent, which is usually the deal-breaker for me with shows. If I can sense that characters are just going to shapeshift and change on a dime in order to take the plot where the writers want it to go, I lose all emotional investment in those characters because they cease to have any reality to them.

This show was a huge part of my identity in high-school.I used to call myself a gleek,proudly. Having gay and bisexual characters really helped me feel more comfortable with my own bisexuality. The show did however normalise a lack of boundaries between teachers and students. Will treats the students like his friends/peers which made it seem like it was okay to form relationships with authority figures. As someone who was groomed by a teacher I can say that shows like Glee and Gossip Girl definitely did active harm. The early 2010s really let a lot of pedoshit slide.

@Amura Hiboshi The oldest and most effective method of teaching is telling stories. Before most of human population worked out how to write and read we taught each other through the word of month. And stories are much easier to remember than just random advice or commandment Even Jesus himself did it. What are parables but stories with religious moral lessons? He didn't just say "don't be a dick to each other". He created this whole story about a good Samaritan being a morally better person than law abiding Jews This story is so powerful that I, a full-blown atheist, still remember it If you think that tausends of years of oral tradition will be surpassed by the relatively modern way of teaching relying mostly on facts logic then I don't really know what to tell you I'm not saying we should give up teaching scepticism But part of this scepticism should be media analysis

Just to correct one thing. If you are going to have a glee club/high school choir, you actually do need a budget. You have to pay for sheet music, sometimes you have to pay for someone to play the piano (although sometimes you can get a band teacher/student to do that for free). It's also nice to have choir robes or something like that so that every kid doesn't have to spend the money to come up with some kind of uniform and acceptable performance outfit. You also often have to pay for transportation to performance venues/conferences/etc. So yeah, you don't need a huge budget, but you do probably need more than $60. Carry on.

None of those things are an issue on Glee, though. They don't use choir robes, they don't use sheet music most of the time, and I'm not sure if Brad the pianist was ever paid (I *think* he's supposed to be another teacher?? They never explain him.) Like of course they need funding but the show especially early on doesn't seem to care about what they actually spend money on, especially since they just all spontaneously know how to sing every single song without sheet music other than in like two episodes.

I actually loved the first season of Glee. Just because they weren't afraid to make a joke about dark moments. It's so exhausting to act all virtuous and that everything in life should match my moral standards.

Glee is one of the finest examples of long form absurdist comedy in the past 20 years, fight me.
