Glee is one of the best shows to air this fall. Like Joss Whedon it too is my biggest addiction. From the amazing singing, eclectic music covered, tight writing, and deep social themes covered Glee will make you laugh, cry, think and feel edified in the end. If you haven’t watched it there are some of the more recent episodes streaming on line Here.
This show is able to tackle such deep and complicated social issues like
- the need and pressures of being accepted
- teen pregnancy
- the benefits of diversity and being a social freak
- self acceptance
- self actualization
- being passionate about whatever you do
I love how the show starts out with the deep honest admittance that everyone is a looser. It was such a shocking statement to hear but once we realize everyone is a looser we are able to move on to do that which you love and not to worry about everyone else.
