Okay, so here's the thing, I love fourth wall breaking. I love meta-humour. I think they are both of the absolute awesome. But I also like consistency. And my major, major failing for Glee is not the occasionally disturbing stereotyping (because I always trust that it will be exploded later -- or that it's deliberate satire), but the complete inconsistency regarding the voice overs. God, it annoys me. Either stick to one perspective, use that technique a hell of a lot more whilst bouncing perspective, or don't use it at all.

The other thing I'd really like are more songs actually constructed or arranged for multiple voices --- songs that aren't just a lead or two and back-up. That would be AWESOME. Even more awesome? Less songs sung by Rachel and Finn (I would say Mercedes, but I kind of adore her passionately.) How's about a song by Puck? Or Kurt? Or Tina?

But apart from these qualms, Glee remains gleeful.

I kind of hate Glee yet I'm always drawn into watching it... I hate that the white kids are the main characters and that the gay guy has a high girly voice and that the cheerleaders wear their uniforms every single damn day and everything you mentioned.... but I keep watching it when I see it's on! I can't stop. AHHHH!!!

I love that the cheerleaders wear their uniforms every day. it adds to the ridiculousness. :D

But mainly I'm just commenting to say that it's not exactly their FAULT Kurt has a high voice. The actor himself is gay and sounds pretty much the same.

I do agree about the white kids thing. heh.

In some ways it kind of is. They scrapped another proposed character of colour to write the part for Chris. And I LOVE Kurt, don't get me wrong (how much did I adore that he's totally ace at kicking a football? A lot!) But what with Sandy as well... Well, it'd be nice to have a gay character who's not flaming, camp, and kinda bitchy appear and hopefully be a love interest for Kurt.

I think it wouldn't bother me if, say, Kurt was the main character. That might be weird... but I think it's the fact that he's the one token gay guy that makes it uncomfortable for me.

And since I went to a high school with a major choir program in which literally half or more of the guys were gay, I'm wondering- where are all the other gay guys???!!! Haha :)

I would say a lot of those aspects of the show are satirical --- and hey, they did address this in the latest episode.

That's true. It just makes me uncomfortable having the stereotype-ish stuff going on... and I really wish one of the minorities was the main character.

And as I said in my other comment, there need to be waaaay more gay guys in the show, ha.

All that being said, I still feel the need to watch it! :p
