When I first made this blog, it was dedicated to Glee, and obviously I followed a bunch of Glee blogs. My dashboard was full of so many peopl that were inspired/aided by the show because of its messages that it spread. But then the writers got greedy and lazy. They wanted to be like other shows, like Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory, where they thrive off of ridiculing people for things that they cannot/should not change. They added more characters, they got rid of the representations of the under dogs and added white people that had everything. They pushed the females and many of the non-white people (minus one, Santana) into the background. It’s now become a show of hypocrisy and it makes me feel extremely uncomfortable and betrayed when I watch it. I know that sounds so stupid but I honestly felt so at home with Glee, it was my thing, I prided myself with loving it. But it changed, and so did the fandom. Now it’s full of passive viewers and people that only care for one or two characters that are romantically involved. People that ignore any signs of bigotry and just get on with it. My dashboard is no longer full of Glee, the people that I met through Glee on tumblr have all disappeared, and now everything about my favourite media text has been destroyed. I loved the first three seasons of Glee more than I have loved any other show, and I will cherish those three seasons in my heart forever. It’s sad that I didn’t know season three was the end, but it truly was. And this type of ending is way worse than when a show gets cancelled because of poor ratings, the show turned its back on everything it said it was about; equality, underdogs, happiness… I just really miss Glee, I don’t want to see Blaine on my screen every 20 seconds, I don’t want to see Tina being bullied for things that others get away with, I don’t want to see my favourite characters changing their behaviour just to make certain members of the show seem better.
RIP Glee. You were a very good show, once upon a time.
