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

Let me be frank
5 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i feel like i would enjoy this show if it weren't for two, major problems. 1) the singing sounds horribly fake, every single time. 2) it uses every high school cliché in the book, and i mean ALL of them.

certainly, it was a good premise for a show if you enjoy comedy/drama and/or musicals, and to be honest, i was looking forward to it at first. and then i actually saw it. the plot was borderline ridiculous (why some teacher, played by the normally hilarious Jane Lynch, is repeatedly allowed to sabotage any club in a school is beyond me)and the acting? it would almost seem impressive if we hadn't seen the exact same clichés played out by every actor in every high school drama for the last, what, 15 or so years?

And then there's the singing. i enjoyed the first few singles they released, i thought it was a nice, creative take on some popular songs. and again, i saw an episode, and heard the actors real voices compared to their singing voices...and i think the rest speaks for itself.

in short, i was very disappointed by this show, and as much as i hate writing a bad review, this show is getting what i think its earned
