Programming note: We have only covered the first three seasons and a single season five episode of Glee.

Glee (2009-2015) is an edgy, clever musical/comedy by Ryan Murphy, the creator of Nip/Tuck and Popular. It's about an earnest high school Spanish teacher, Will Schuester, and his determination to make McKinley High School's Glee Club an award-winning team, like it was back when he was a student. Glee faces an uphill battle against the high school caste system (where it is the lowest of the low), the football team, and Sue Sylvester, the butt-kicking coach of the international cheerleading champion, the Cheerios.

Like Ryan Murphy's previous shows, Glee pushes the envelope with deliciously inappropriate musical numbers, and turns every high school stereotype on its head. It's packed with snarky, irreverent jokes about high school and life in middle America.
