Get your slushies ready, because this month’s Examining video is all about Glee. The hit Fox series was a behemoth in TV, but its impact on music was just as strong. Let’s take a retrospective walk through the full series, its music, and how these geeks managed to rise to (and fall from) the top…
Let me know your favorite Glee episode/song/character/Will rap in the comments!
NOTE 1: Drake surpassed Glee's record in March of this year, not February.
NOTE 2: At two points in this video, I use terms regarding people who use wheelchairs. Some of you have told me that these phrases are at best cringy, and at worst offensive. I apologize for using those terms, and will be more mindful of my language going forward.

Ok ok ok ok ok OK. Listen, I was a huuuuge gleek back in my day. Think I jumped on the wagon at season 2 and nose dived off at what I thought was season 6. Just got towards the end of the video and quickly realized I actually stopped after S5 because WHAT THE FUCK? THEY HAD COACH BEISTE TRANSITIOOONNN??? What was the point of “never been kissed” if she was trans? It was so refreshing to me to have a masculine presenting woman that wasn’t a lesbian or trans (and I say that as a stud lesbian) dealing with her masculine and feminine sides. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised but it seems so damn pandering. Trans visibility matters but not when it’s shoehorned in there as an afterthought.

The most heartbreaking moments of audio in glee are in season 3, when the teachers are talking about Karofsky’s suicide attempt and sue says “i keep imagining how his father must have felt finding him” and it cuts to these awful wails and screams from his dad, and in Quarterback when the music cuts out and Santana is sobbing and then screaming. Glee didn’t have very many moments of serious emotion being shown without making it a joke, but those two parts… man. i almost cry every time i hear them.

@lithiumkid
@lithiumkid 2 yıl önce
Twilight portrayed an abusive relationship as romantic, had a main character pretending to be native american when the actor wasn’t, and was written by someone who based one of the love interests on her own brother. Sims is a good, pretty unproblematic series of games with multiple iconic gothic and alt characters that tons of people remember by name even 22 years later. i see why they didn’t want to be associated with Twilight and i think there’s nothing weird or hypocritical about them then going on to put a song into Sims 3.

On the point of how Glee handled its LGBT characters, the one standout memory I have from the show is the Teen Drinking episode where, when Blaine was questioning whether he might be Bisexual, Kurt's immediate response was, "Bisexual is term gay people use to tiptoe back into the closet", and every once in a while that sneaks up on me like being smacked in the back of the head with a rotting Mackerel.
@alim.9801

Idk if it's just me but it feels like something that Kurt as a character wouldn't say, like it feels out of character for him specifically. Like yeah ok maybe he's just saying it bc he's jealous or whatever, but even then that just felt like a bizarre and overly mean line coming from him.
@taylorgayhart9497
That was the general attitude about bisexuality until recently, think Sex and the City when Carrie said “I'm not even sure bisexuality exists. I think it's just a layover on the way to Gaytown.” Men who were bi were seen as “easing into” being gay, and women who were bi were seen as performing their sexuality for male attention. It wasn’t really until the mid-2010s that bisexuality and pansexuality were more broadly accepted.

I will say this for Glee: the Bohemian Rhapsody sequence is top tier editing, and probably one of the all-time best visual spectacles ever seen on TV in the 21st century. To. This. Day. I still, even when watching it out of context on TRvid, get goosebumps every single time I watch it. It definitively shows how the rival show choir beat the New Directions simultaneously with the very reasons as to why ND is a better group of people by having them all show up for Beth's birth, all while _some-fuckin-how_ breathing new life into the greatest pop song ever written. Ryan Murphy's greatest achievement. Bar none.

There's a new Glee podcast hosted by Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) and Kevin McHale (Artie). They interviewed Ryan Murphy in the first two episodes, and he said that if he could go back and do it again, he probably would have cancelled the show after Cory's death. He admitted that they filmed The Quarterback way too soon and that it wasn't good for any of them to go back to set so quickly. Kevin said that he and other cast members would occasionally just walk off set during takes to cry. I haven't watched that episode since it aired but I remember absolutely hating it. Glee was my happy place, and to see the characters and cast grieve so openly was not something that I (or they) needed. Also the last two seasons were just awful. They completely ruined so many beloved side characters by giving them horrible storylines (namely Blaine and Tina). They also spent four seasons using Coach Beiste's character to show us that being a woman could look however you wanted it to look, only to totally turn their backs on that and say 'a masculine woman must actually be a trans man.' Seriously, by the end of the show my fanfictions were better than what came out of that writers' room.
@froginatub
@froginatub Yıl önce
I'd agree with almost all of this, but I would gently push back on what you say about Bieste. I am a masculine woman myself, with a number of friends who are trans guys! A lot of them did think they were butch lesbians at first- it's a pretty natural assumption. It doesn't mean all butches are secret trans men, of course (I'm not) but it's certainly not not unrealistic! I also think it's a little unfair to pit masc women and trans guys "against" each other in this way, as if representation for trans men is a "loss" for Butch women in some way. I'm a "rising waters raise all ships" type. More acceptance of trans people will mean more acceptance of gender nonconformity; which is a win for masc women! Of course it would have been nice if Glee (or any show lol) had more masc women or trans characters on it, so they could all stand alone as characters rather than having to represent whole demographics, but I don't have any problem with the storyline itself!
@calmbbaer
@calmbbaer Yıl önce
Agreed about Beiste. It's probably the most Glee thing in Glee: Totally sacrificing canon and character development in the name of drama and agenda. It reminds me of Ally McBeal where Ling tells Fish that she doesn't like sex because it gets her too sweaty. Then, maybe an episode or two later, she tells him that she actually REALLY likes sex, as long as she gets REALLY sweaty. This is supposed to be a funny, character-building surprise, but it comes off as the writers just regretting and changing their mind about something and not respecting the audience enough to write within the limitations that they themselves set. Which, again, was Glee's defining characteristic since episode two. And, as for the politics of it, if Glee cared about the struggles of butch women, it would have made a different character into a trans man. And there's no way the money train of Glee would stop just because someone died, no matter what Murphy says now that there are no consequences for him saying so. It may sound callous, but, hey, that's Glee. I find it a total non-coincidence that a show that cared more about drama, agenda, quantity, and tokenism than characters, people, quality, non-toxicity, and compassion, had so many cast members who died young. You can tell the ALFs of the world - dated and cringe on the outside, chaotic and traumatic on the inside - from shows that are timeless and launch tremendous careers, like that other McKinley High show, Freaks and Geeks. To the detriment of its members, its longevity, and society, Glee was an ALF.

Just a note, though, when I re-watched the very first episode, I cried when Cory came on screen. Oh, yeah, and after being mandated at work to go to "violence in the workplace" trainings, Sue would not have been able to continue working - she would have had to clean up her act or leave.

Glee has one flawless point: Burt Hummel! Kurt's father is the most loving character ever. He doesn't care for Kurt's sexuality, he only cared for his son's happiness and safety! When Finn made a homophobic comment about Kurt, he was willing to break up with his beloved girlfriend (aka Finn's mother) to protect his son! Burt is the best by far!

I also had adult friends cause I was more mature for my age. They didn't touch me or try to force me to do anything. Learn the difference, please. And stop trying to turn something wonderful into ugly. Friendships between young and old exist. Older teach us many things and we should appreciate them. I did.

"When it was good, there was nothing like it" sums it up very well. I was in my mid 20s when i watched glee and the teen drama and ridiculous story lines were grating at that point. BUT. Having been in some form of choir/chorus or musical theater group all through my time at school, when they were on stage and they hit those big notes, and you could see the emotion on the faces and hear the harmonies welling up like tsunamis - i cried. A LOT. If performing is your thing, then there is NOTHING like it. And glee reminded me of "my time in the spotlight" (if you can call it that lol). Yeah, it's ridiculous, over the top, silly, insane, exaggerated, just straight up DUMB sometimes. And viewed from today, the tokenism is just... oof. But the core of the show - people being passionate about music and performing - is something i will always be able to come back to and hysterically cry over. (Because i did not make it as a singer, like, at all. Singing makes me sad now. But glee reminds me of when i was still able yo dream, like the characters.)

All the criticisms of Glee are absolutely valid, but I think you fail to call enough attention to how groundbreaking Glee was at the time. Glee was one of the first shows ever to feature such a diverse cast where characters weren’t reduced to stereotypes, but actually had their identities explored (e.g. Asian F, where Mike Chang’s conflict between following his dreams or the path his parents have chosen for him takes center stage.) Also, Glee’s LGBT representation was a true first in mainstream television. You mentioned Kurt’s coming out as a main plot of Season 1, but make only a passing mention of Brittany & Santana in Season 2, which was arguably even more significant than Kurt’s coming out because it was something that was revealed over time. Glee also tackled a lot of serious social issues in ways that were appropriate and offered interesting commentary that explored multiple facets of the issue (e.g. religion in Grilled Cheesus, sexuality in Sexy, domestic violence in Choke, etc.) The experience of watching Glee in 2020 as an adult is entirely different from watching it during its original run as an adolescent coming to terms with their identity. Yes, any Glee fan acknowledges the countless plot holes, silly tropes, and painfully stupid moments, but Glee’s impact on pop culture and inclusion of underrepresented groups shouldn’t be overlooked.

i never see anyone talk about this, but i think a major reason for the shows complete shift in tone and seemingly lack of direction during season 5 was largely due to the fact finn was, essentially, the heart of the show - it's clear most of the storylines planned would have relied on finn being there. like yeah, finn wasn't an amazing character but you can really feel the loss of cory monteith in the later seasons had a major impact on the shows overall feel and quality. another note: glee's main problem is it's refusal for their main characters to actually grow and develop. quinn was the only character that actually changed and grew and then (this is from memory, so i may be wrong on this) ryan murphy threw that away for petty reasons because he wanted quinn to stay the bitchy mean girl and dianna's portrayal of quinn meant he couldn't do that anymore.

I’m so confused at your description of the Rachel and Finn S3 ending cause it’s entirely the opposite of what actually happened. For me it captured what you were talking about with s1 doing so well - emotional stakes. Finn literally breaks up with her on their wedding day cause he acknowledges the reality that long distance and the work Rachel will need to put in to achieve her dream just won’t work congruently with their relationship. It’s quite arguably the most selfless thing a Glee character does (all to be undone 4 episodes later of course LOL).

I avoided Glee for years, but out of my post-college graduation loneliness or something like that I started the show on a whim about two months ago. I moved slowly through the show at first but as time went on I felt a need to be able to engage in the discourse around it so I finished it pretty quickly and got to the end last week. It's gotta be the most chaotic and unhinged piece of media I've ever consumed. You brought up a lot of good points here that help to understand the show a lot better. It sucks that there doesn't really seem to be much of a place in modern media now, though, for musical TV shows like this. Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (an excellent show, by the way) got cancelled after two seasons and the fans and people making the show had to campaign really hard to get it resolved in its Christmas movie. I doubt that any more of it is gonna be made, as much as the showrunner seems to really want to. Some shows aimed at younger audiences like HSMTMTS are still on, but they feel very different. I do love that Glee seems to be making something of a resurgence with Lea Michele's real life casting as Fanny Brice (which, by the way, there was talk however many years ago of some reboot that she'd be doing with Beanie Feldstein? Absolutely wild)

"But when it was good, there was nothing else like it." This sums it up perfectly. I was part of the fandom from mid-season 1/beginning of s2, through the beginning of s4 (and tried to at least read summaries until s5 when I really lost interest). There were literal live watch parties on Livejournal every week when a new episode aired. People created episode commentary blog posts complete with full screenshots and quotes and animated gifs and memes from the show. Even the people who unironically loved the show, myself included, would rant about all the dumb, weird, and/or just plain nonsensical stuff happening in each episode. But there was just enough "good" in it, to string us along and keep us coming back for more, week after week, hoping for more "good". But also, you couldn't love Glee and not poke some kind of fun at it. It was stupid, and we recognized that even as we loved it - possibly because it was stupid and insane.

"handicapable" is considered to be a little patronizing, we know we're disabled, you can just say disabled. again, it's not a super huge deal, just for the future. also it was a pretty big ppoint of contention within the disability community that archie was not played by an actual wheelchair user, just because their are so many wheelchair-using actors who can't get non-wheelchair parts.

Every July 13 I think of Corey Monteith and think of his current age, wondering what he'd be doing. The episode of honoring him was moving & done so well.

can we agree that they did tina so dirty giving her an unnecessary fake stutter, her rude attitude and backwards character development. Really doing the asian representation dirty. Mike Chang's character development was amazing why couldn't they do that with Tina's?

This video is honestly exceptional. It was clever, thoughtful and encapsulated what it is to be a Glee fan. Which is to say, what it’s like to both acknowledge moments of genius or greatness or success whilst also loathing its very existence. This gave me so much nostalgia to a time in my life where Glee was everything to me (as a 12 year old theatre kid with no friends), and how I now look back on it with a mix of genuine, unironic love and horror.

I’ve literally never watched or even really heard of any of season 6 until watching this video. I literally kept rewatching that part because the plot points that you were saying were making my mind explode.

I unironically love season 6. It feels like the writers decided “hey you know how our show is half drama and half nonsense at this point? Time to get rid of the dead weight!” and I fucking love it.

Love this video (and the rest of your content) so much! I genuinely keep coming back to this because Glee was my safe space and the thing I latched onto when my parents divorced in 2010 and I went through more changes than any 13 year old should have to deal with. Was it horrible for my development? Yes, for a short time, but I was able to acknowledge its flaws several years later. While it will never again be my favorite show, it still holds a special place and I’m sure so many others feel the same. I’ll never forget waking up to a text from a friend I hadn’t talked to in over a year asking me if I’d heard about Cory Monteith’s passing. It’s a damn shame how quickly the shimmer of this show faded, but I’m grateful it did exist when many of us needed it most.

As a theatre kid who never watched Glee, but constantly felt in lurking behind every corner, I'm excited to watch this video.
