I gave it a fair shot. As a teacher in a suburban high school, I felt duty-bound to watch the first three episodes of Glee, and I really tried to like it. But I’ve given up. The actors can’t act (except for the lead, Matthew Morrison), and the writers can’t write. I assume that the actors were picked by their ability to sing, since they do that quite well, but that’s not enough. And the writers just pile on cliché upon cliché, most egregiously in Episode 3. A clear thumbs-down.
