Storyline

When a High School Spanish teacher, Will Schuester, becomes the director of the school's failing Glee club, New Directions, he hopes to be able to rejuvenate it. The club competes in the choir competition circuit. It's been called "a High School Musical for adults", the series follows the club and its mixture of oddball members as they try and restore it to its former glory. It is a musical comedy in which the eager and ambitious students not only compete to win the Nationals, but also have to deal with the tough and cruel realities of their school, McKinley High. At the same time, Will is trying to rejuvenate his failing love life whilst preventing the school's cheer leading coach Sue Sylvester from sabotaging the choir. Written by WellardRockard

A gross miscalculation.
5 September 2012 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

First of all, the show itself is just awful. It disgusts me that so many people buy into this. The show itself desperately tries to preach to people about 'being themselves,' yet they're constantly showcasing 'different people' getting doused with slushies by popular kids. Makes sense, right? The writing is just atrocious. Absolutely awful. No doubt the worst writing I've ever seen on a television show. They use the musical numbers as cushions to cover the plot holes they can't cover themselves. Often, a problem is solved with a simple musical number. How can we convince Puck that having a baby is a good idea... musical number! How can we convince Wade that it's okay for him to cross-dress... musical number! How can we convince Karofsky not to kill himself... musical number! You guys get the point. The situations and resolutions are so unrealistic, it's disgusting. This doesn't happen in real life, most of the plot is completely implausible. To add insult to injury, the music selection is terrible. It's all either taken directly from the Top 100 chart at the time or the greatest hits of a recently dead celebrity; and about that, they're completely soulless with no regret, pawning off the misfortune of others. On top of that, 'New Directions' itself is completely unrealistic. At first I thought, maybe the musical numbers are like dream sequences, or they're just imagining the big set-ups, lights, costumes, while just singing. But no, it's actually 'happening.' Yes, the characters step into a room that's completely made up and decorated, with back up dancers, elaborate outfits, and the band that they have completely at their disposal, who can apparently play any song you could ever imagine. The club has unfathomable budgets, of which no school would ever fund, or allow, for that matter. The overly-dramatic aspect of the show is enough to make you vomit. Everything is a f--king soap opera with these writers, no one can ever just have a normal day. The 'comedy' is non-existent. Here's something funny! I've noticed countless one-liners stolen directly from the original Fame. For example: "That's vocal masturbation." Can you believe that? It's a wonder they make a profit off of this. Fox must be marketing wizards.
