  Not For Me

| | See all deanlowdon's reviews (468)

Your enjoyment of Glee will very much depend on whether or not you are a fan of chart pop music. I won't go on a rant about the issues I have with a great deal of current popular artists but suffice much of this music is overproduced to the point where it could be anyone singing.

Looking beyond the music the only real appeal I could find was another terrific performance from Jane Lynch, as the angry PE teacher Sue Sylvester, who had a number of very funny one-liners. The rest of the time is filled with rather average drama that can't even be compared to the best that television has to offer at present. This is one with people in their early teens really.

  Sheer Brilliance

| | See all chaosbleeds's reviews (1)

I put off watching Glee for well over a year saying what a load of rubbish and especially when they released "Don't Stop Believing" in to the charts it made me well just plain annoyed, but having now literally just finished watching the first season I can honestly say WOW was I impressed, such a heart-warming show I'd recommend it to anyone especially those who love show tunes and/or even popular modern music, I'm definitely one "HATER" converted to a Gleek I can't wait to start watching season 2

  Forced to watch it by my wife!

Sickly storylines, and songs that are quite frankly, a blasphemy to decent music. One of the worst things to come from the states for a long time

  undermanding entertainment

| | See all piemaker's reviews (2)

I agree with Skeletor's review in that this is just good, easy entertainment that is definately easy to make you smile and to have you humming along to the songs.
So much of tv today is made up of those awful reality tv shows, and Glee provides pure escapeism from the crappy world we live in.
Perhaps some numbers are nothing against the originals and certain cast members do like to sing louder than anybody else, but it's funny, moving in parts and had me hooked from episode one.
Simple undemanding entertainment that should be given a chance, rather than dismissed.

..what is clearly obvious is that Glee is an acquired taste indeed.
A reviewer below me claims that Glee is for " simple minded " people, well, how insulting to those who are able to watch this kind of programme and who are equipped with an I.Q to know that this is simply feel good un-demanding entertainment that has the ability to both amuse and touch it's audience in equal measure.
Not to say that it does not have it's flaws, some musical numbers are over-sung and had me reaching for the volume button ( Lea Michelle does like those high notes ) but it's very touching in parts, with subjects such as disability and being gay being handled realistically and with respect, without resorting to overtly explicit stereotypes.
Two words save Glee from being just another High School Musical/Grease lovechild = Sue Sylvester.
Jane Lynch is nothing short of magnificent in the role as the dead pan and hardened ( with a hidden soft centre ) sports coach who always has a great one liner for both the pupils and staff.
Major mentions must go to Chris Colfer as " Kurt " who shines throughout the series, and Heather Morris' drippy "Brittany Pierce " emerges as a future scene stealer!
The aforemetioned reviewer below me made a judgment based solely on one episode and then had the discourtesy to brand any fan of the show as " simple minded " , taking into account his or her actions and views after just one episode, i feel it is only fair to therefore warrant his view " narrow minded " and bearing that in mind, i'll take being simple minded anyday.
I'm proud to be a Gleek.

  YES, I have watched it. YES, it's rubbish.

I watched one episode to see if it's as bad as people say it is and, sorry, but they are correct. It's just a kiddie/teen show with nothing of interest for an older audience. The younger viewers love it because, as the saying goes, simple things please simple minds.

Tit-for-tat anyone?
