      While I don't enjoy glee I think the whole thing is almost a satire about that kind of culture, it's like saying the characters in its always sunny are problematic, thats the point

      Don't allow them to demonitize your video that's against the law law you ABSOLUTELY know what FAIR USE IS & you are well within the law on this so there is nothing wrong with being honest & just telling us to like, subscribe, buy merch, Patreon, donate & all of the things to support their favorite content creator & then move on to your work but don't allow everyone's rights to be trampled or treat us like idiots.

    Ok yes yes yes yes everything you're saying is so right and all these guys suck... but I think its completely reasonable for glee club nationals to be the best day of your life. Performing at a high level is one of the most meaningful/spiritual things you can experience in a group and some people never get that chance past high school

    I find it so interesting how our perceptions changed when this first came out it was monumental and was seen as an adult "High School Musical" I really wish we could appreciate things for how they were and not how we should be thinking now. Grease is incredibly problematic compared to todays standards but is still a well renown movie. Something can still be a classic without it being relevant to current social standards.

    i don't know what's more concerning, that i enjoyed glee so much as a child or that my parents convinced me to watch it when i was eight so i would be exposed to more narratives (and great music) and don't become homophobic, transphobic, ableist etc. kinda works because now i'm very very gay, so thanks glee!

    Glee characters ranked by how much you should care about them:
    Sue: Yes she gets very unlikable sometimes but Jesus Christ Jane Lynch needs aspirin for carrying the show.
    Santana/Brittany and Kurt/Blaine: If you can power through 6 seasons of this crap you will understand that these 2 couples really carry the show.
    Mercedes and Sam: Dude you cannot understand the chemistry of this pair.
    Quinn and Puck: Boi they really carried that drama in the first season.
    Tina and Mike Cheng: Again, the payoff is good if you power through to season 6, but oh my god it’s painful to watch Tina
    Finn: I know the actor died before season 5 and I give him all the credit for his acting. But the writing doesn’t hide the fact that as more time goes on, the more you start to realize he’s not a goodie two shoes.
    Rachel and Will: Can we even explain this

    He needed the $60 a month because the school was going to rent the space to some community group and the only way Figgins would agree is if Will paid the fee they were going to get from the other group.

    The only good characters who were genuine and didn’t give me any conflicting feelings were Kurt and his dad. Kurt’s dad was so wholesome, and even when he didn’t fully understand Kurt being gay, he always tried his hardest to understand and even stood up for him.
    More hot takes no one asked for: Brittany was a great character and fun to watch despite being such a small part, Santana wasn’t likable at all but her coming out story made her a bit more likable, and (get ready for this one) AT FIRST I liked Rachel… mainly because of her passion for performing… then I realized oh she’s narcissistic so it’s hard to watch her most times. It’s so conflicting bc you wanna root for her but then she does the dumbest things and you literally just can’t (same with the rest of the characters tbh).

    Imma be honest, I’m a big fan of glee , I grew up with it as someone who did grow up with glee , you really have to sit there and think , at the end of the day I feel as if it showed me a lot more then just kids bullying eachother, it’s funny but also sad , the guy who played Finn dies irl right and they add it to the show, but it also talks about really big things that people go through, it was a tv show , that I saw my first lesbian couple, and that’s such a big deal to me but looking back on it , ITS SO FUNNY

    Looking back at this show, there’s a lot of these crazy moments like Sandy roaming free and Will’s inappropriate conduct with the students. But I think the show is more enjoyable if you don’t expect a reality show and rather a hyper-dramatized madhouse. I didn’t watch all that much (maybe up to the middle of season 2?), but I personally enjoyed the ridiculous drama

    random but I went to the same high school as one of the writers, Ian Brennan, who based Glee off his experience in our choir (and in 2005, the choir teacher was convicted of sexual assault). No one at the school really mentioned it, even though I went there only around 10 years after the events that inspired Glee. Also crazy that Brennan was inspired by this horrible story of sexual assault and ..Glee.. came out of it.

    I mean, I'm only five minutes into this video, but I'm already thinking you have less of a problem with this show, and more of a problem with high schools in 2009. Teachers being oblivious to bullying, kids doing good but only for selfish reasons and teachers being pedos were all reality. The cripple comment was literally commentary on how dismissive and ableist schools can be. Glee probably does have a ton of problematic themes or jokes but it was one of the most inclusive and representative shows of its time.
