Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)

Here we have a tie for Community and Glee, with Community edging slightly ahead of the Fox juggernaut. See, Community has been of consistent quality throughout its first season, with only a few slight dips. When Glee has slipped qualitatively, it's been bad.

However, I talked about Community yesterday, and you should totally just read that post again. And watch the clips. Again. They're funny! (Quixote doesn't care if we talked about Community just yesterday, that's his answer again today.)

My delight in Glee is founded on a love of musical theatre, singing along to good songs, an appreciation for ridiculous plots, and a willingness to watch awful people if they're funny enough. Almost everyone on the show is a reprehensible human being to some degree, and I'm okay with that. They're fictional: I don't have to respect them. I'm just here to dig their music and absurdity.

Okay, my relationship with the show has gotten deeper and more complex than that since the show began, but I don't really want to get mired in a discussion of its major issues right now: it's been getting some things right, but it's been doing even more so very wrong.

I am failing at not beginning an actual analysis of Glee. This post stops here!
