…I began watching Glee from its first episode. Right from the start, I was a big fan. I mean, c’mon, what’s there not to like? A charismatic teacher, trying to motivate a band of outcast misfits, and trying to keep them from killing each other. Gotta love it, especially if you’re a high school teacher like I am.
But then I started to notice something: it has an all-too familiar story line. Familiar victims. Familiar villains (The dad from last week’s episode was a Glenn Beck fan. He also happened to be a Christian, and a drunk. Oh, one more thing: he’s the guy that coldly gave his daughter half an hour to pack her bags after he found out she–the president of the chastity club– was pregnant.). It surprises me that it’s on Fox rather than, say, NBC, but how many times have I heard that story line from the MSM?
Meh…I’m over the show. Gimme some creativity, will ya?
If you watch Glee, tell me what you think of it in the comments section.
