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

Does anyone remember 'Cop Rock'? No? It was something along the lines of 'Glee' in that it tried to combine a few good ideas in a horrible, horrible bastard child of a TV show. 'Cop Rock' was a combo of 'Hill Street Blues' with 'Fame'. The boys in blue were singing and dancing while booking the bad guys. I think it had an impressive run of a whopping three episodes. 'Glee', like 'Cop Rock' sucks too. This show tries to combine '90210', 'Desperate Housewives', 'Fame', and a number of other marginal shows into one. It includes drama, humor, talent, and human interest in to a tight little package that fails miserably. Sure, it would be good if it were half of those things, but it is seriously too much which makes it a train wreck which is (oddly enough) impossible to watch. I actually feel sorry for the talented actors who signed on for this and hope they can recover from this debacle of as television show.
