Having been, during my school years, in choir and drama club and on the academic and speech teams, Glee fires a bunch of memory cells. Growing up in small town Indiana (the show takes place in Lima, Ohio in a high school that shares its name with the school from Freaks and Geeks...I don't believe accidently), we also needed the football players and cheerleaders to make the numbers for productions. And, amazingly, you did find out that there were many more similarities between "cliques" than differences. And, like on the show, I think part of the education of high school is realizing, through observation of your teachers and coaches, how screwed up adult life continues to be...hurt feelings and confusion continues...doesn't end at graduation.
With the end of the first half of the first season last night...what did you think?
