I know I posted a similar topic a while back, but some time has passed, so I thought I'd give it another shot...

Anyone here watch Glee?

I watch it ocasionally, but not religiously.
I think it's funny.

...because neither Flashforward nor V take good songs and make them great, because neither of the two combine so gracefully comedy with good ol' drama, because neither of the two dare to tackle social issues while remaining extremely fun to watch...etc.

Why so?

It seems to be a dumb show from what I interpret. Is it about little high school kids singing?

That's the premise. But the premise isn't always the point. Do we watch House to study for the MCAT? Do we watch The Simpsons to learn about the Social Development of Kids and the Effects of Primary Education? Didn't think so.

Besides, don't be so condescending. You're a high school kid. So am I. In fact, much of this site is comprised of dumb little high school kids.

It is not, however, composed of fictional high school kids, stylized essential traits. It consists of rather atypical ones for that matter.

are to tackle social issues

I think I'll pass anything he lauds for that.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Epic fail.

I just don't like any of the characters, nor do I find musicals very appealing. The tone of the show is often too cartoonish/jokey for me and as I watch on I often grow an inner desire to walk into that school with a bag of guns and start spraying. However, I recognize that it isn't a terrible show and has many positive qualities to it but I just don't enjoy it.

It's like hating country or classical music while acknowledging their significance.

I actually do watch glee. It has not been as good, as of late, but the first season was fantastic. The show went away from normal high school stereo-types. I still find I like it very much, but not as much as in the first season. Now it seems to be gravitating towards the same high school drama I've seen before.
I'll get by with a little help from my friends.

I was being ironic, trying to show to you that your characterization of the characters in Glee is condescending. How do I show that? By translating your comments to this website.
