More problematic is Glee, which is High School Musical in weekly episodic format. Sure, the glee clubs of the world have been alienated endlessly, but cliques are cliques. Being in a clique that gets picked on is an integral part of high school, right up there with getting your first terrible minimum-wage job. When Glee attempts to teach us lessons (I’m trying not to laugh just as hard as you) it fails miserably because the show isn’t about being different and celebrating that, it’s about being accepted and popular. If they wanted to be “different” the glee club would actually sing good music, not Rihanna’s mind-numbingly repetitive “We Found Love”. The fact that the best character on a show attempting to destroy stereotypes and celebrate diversity is Jane Lynch’s hyper-stereotypical Sue Sylvester is an irony that is difficult to see through success and piles of money.
