Initial assessment of Glee

After two episodes…

The good:

  • Quirky as hell
  • Original  characters with actual character development
  • A possible reference to HL Menken in the pilot
  • Good music
  • Genuinely funny

The bad:

  • High school kids can be mean, but never this mean
  • A smidgen of sap
  • A formulaic plot but with blessedly non-formulaic characters

…and that might be it.

Overall a rousing success so far.  I love it.
