I am always a little behind the times. Tonight I started watching "Glee" reruns online. Any other sing-songy teen dramedy fans out there? The show is entertaining though I was surprised at the innuendo. Don't know if it is for the 16 and under crowd I thought the show attracted.
Now as much as I love Journey covers and Jane Lynch, what was most interesting to me was the mentioning of life issues from the get go. So far (just 1.5 episodes into last season) the show's touched on IVF, euthanasia, and contraception-- the first is poked at a bit ("I was a love child... conceived in a lab"), the second ascribed to the villainous Ms. Sylvester, and the third roundly defended as the only sensible answer to the problems of premarital sex.
If such things can be mentioned off the cuff they must be deep in the American mind, no? Glee will certainly be a decent substitute while I recuperate from the most disappointing television phenomena that shall not be named (*cough... lost*). It will also fit in nicely, I think, with my all time favorite show, Tyra, what with the sermonizing about condoms and great hair and all that.
