Review of The Glee Project

60 minutes

From Ryan Murphy, the creator and executive producer of "Glee," comes a groundbreaking and authentic, ten episode documentary reality series. "The Glee Project" will find and train a group of phenomenally talented performers who will compete against each other to win a role on the hottest show on television. From thousands of entries, and after a nationwide talent search, Robert Ulrich, the casting director for "Glee," will uncover a unique group of artists from both professional and amateur backgrounds. In the true spirit of "Glee," every underdog who has been waiting for the right opportunity to showcase his/her talent now has a fighting chance. Across ten episodes, the hopefuls will be narrowed down through intensive rounds of workshops, "Glee"-themed assignments and call-backs as a team of "Glee" insiders carefully assess which one of them has what it takes to be the next new face, and voice, of "Glee." The stakes are enormous - a prize that money can't buy - a multi-episode guest starring role on "Glee," and a genuine shot at fame and fortune for a talent who truly deserves it.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This spinoff casting show went exactly the way of its original mothershow. Just like Glee itself, this one started off really nice, with interesting people and fresh ideas, but after a while it became very safe and boring. The Glee Projecs ended up with quite an exciting first season, whose quirky and lovely winners could sing but unfortunately couldn't act very well, and a decent actor as the winder of the second season, who unfortunately wasn quite ordinary in any other way.

Director Ryan Murphy seems to have the same problem with all of his shows. He starts them off with daring and new ideas and concepts, but after they turn out to be commercially successful he plays it safe and everything becomes boring. It was like that with Glee, the Glee project and by the way American Horror Story has exactly the same problem.
