Deeply Moved

Glee never fails to move me.  Nobody can present a reasonable argument against the statement that it's definitely one of the best things that have been introduced by prime-time television programming.

From a personal point of view, there are a number of things that make the show as awesome as it is.  First to mention is the cleverly woven repertoire of borrowed songs by yesterday's and today's great artists.  Secondly, the storylines reflect today's life, which makes it very easy for people to find resonance in them.  One could say, "hey, this seems like a chip from my life," and if you haven't found yourself a good denouement yet, it presents viable options.  And then, most importantly for me, it's the valuable character-reshaping lessons we get from them.

Glee is as optimistic as it is realistic and I'm glad they're making it that way.  It's a truth that not everyone in this world lives on equal footing, but positive attitude brought about by positive media can help alleviate the distance and teach people to gaze beyond differences.

If your're not that fortunate today, who says your life has to suck forever?

Whatever country you're in and whatever music you listen to, you'll learn a thing or two from Glee.

Trust me.  You will.
