that’s when you need someone
someone that you can call
and when all your faith is gone
feels like you can’t go on

Okay, well I don’t really consider myself part of the Glee fandom and haven’t watched the show for a while so I could be really off-base. And I definitely don’t hate Glee but I did really enjoy it for a few seasons and don’t anymore. For me, and this is probably true for a lot of other people, Glee started out as something really unique and funny. It was a satirical look at the pressures of high school, it was super clever, and it was a musical. All fantastic! And in addition to that the show managed to convey really great messages about acceptance and being true to yourself without holding up flashing signs and twisting the characters into illogical knots.
Now I think what people half-jokingly hate about the show is that it’s gone from being punchy and witty to each week’s episode being a 45 minute PSA in which there’s no character continuity and the musical numbers come out of nowhere. They’ve gone so far downhill in terms of storytelling that it’s hard not to joke about it even if you’re still invested and that can take a lot of the impact out of the messages they’re trying to get across.
And, to be very clear, I don’t think anyone (myself included) thinks it’s at all a bad thing for Glee to address the countless trials of high school and being a teenager and finding yourself and all that that entails. That’s all really, really important and they have had their successes to be sure. But it used to go about it all a lot more intelligently and now does so without regard to overall development and potentially mishandles some important subjects.
