Oh Glee. I love you, I hate you, then I kinda like you again, then I'm throwing things at the set wishing you were dead.

Mostly a fun show that managed to include important issues for the LGBT community and highlight them fabulous with show tunes. The show manages to get some big name Broadway stars and other huge music performers to guest and even play recurring roles. The music is all hits that would not be used by your average small town glee club because royalties are expensive.

Mostly a diverse cast and some inclusion of their different issues though not always done well. The inclusion of a Down's Syndrome character was initially welcome however her storyline became increasingly insulting. The patronizing way they dealt with her sexuality. The way she devolved into a screaming lunatic. Even the episode that was about her they chose another actor to narrate instead of the actor who played Becky. (Yeah, it was Helen Mirren but it was still cheesy and insulting.)
