  • How Bad Ideology Destroys Good TV: Why the hit TV show 'Glee' Crashed and Burned

    Pajamas Media ^ | 02/25/2015 | Spencer Klavan
    So I was watching Glee the other day (yes I watch Glee, okay?!), and man has that show jumped the shark. It’s frustrating, because Glee went down in flames the way a lot of good shows do: it got too busy constructing a leftist fantasyland to tell a decent story. It’s another victim of what I like to call “liberal backslide.”Bear with me here for a second. I realize Glee was never an elegant allegory of fiscal conservatism. And no one could claim that it ever had an ironclad grip on reality. The show takes place in an underfunded Ohio...
  • Glee Star: "Showering Once a Day is such a White People Thing"

    Pundit Press ^ | Aurelius
    Appearing on the View yesterday, Glee star Naya Rivera raised eyebrows by saying that “showering once a day is such a white people thing.” The comment came after co-host Nicolle Wallace said that, as the owner of dogs and the mother of a baby, she finds herself showering more and more. Sometimes, Wallace said, there would be “mud” or “pee” in her hair, so she showers, even as many as “three times a day.” “You know, I have to say, I have a theory about showering, which is that white people shower a lot more than ethnics,” Rivera responded. She...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The boyfriend of one of the stars from the popular show “Glee” was found dead in a Center City Philadelphia hotel room. Matt Bendik, the boyfriend of Becca Tobin, was found in the Hotel Monaco on Chestnut Street Thursday afternoon. The Philadelphia Medical Examiner says an autopsy attempting to determine what caused the death of 31-year-old nightclub owner Matt Bendik inside a hotel room on Independence Mall Thursday is inconclusive and additional tests will be required. “The autopsy did not immediately establish a clear cause of death,” the statement read, in part, “There was no evidence of...

Jack Klugman -- who has won 3 Emmys and starred in TV classics -- "The Odd Couple" and "Quincy M.E." -- has been overlooked and disrespected for special mention during tonight's ceremony. Instead ... Cory Monteith gets the honor. Jack's son thinks it's ridiculous and disrespectful, and he's right.

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia — “Glee” actor Cory Monteith, who had struggled for years with substance abuse and once said he was lucky to be alive, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner’s office said Tuesday. “There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident,” the office said in a statement. The 31-year-old was found dead in his Vancouver, British Columbia, hotel room on Saturday after he didn’t check out on time. He was believed to be alone when he died.

    Less than four months since 20 children and six educators were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the television show "Glee" depicted a school shooting in Thursday night's episode. The episode, titled "Shooting Star," began with a disclaimer reading, "This episode of 'Glee' addresses the topic of school violence. Viewer discretion is advised." Halfway through the episode, Will Schuester, the glee club coach played by Matthew Morrison, gathered his students in the choir room to begin their practice. "Let's get started," he said, clapping his hands together as a gunshot was heard in the background. A second shot rang...

    Patheos ^ | 02/23/2012 | Brian Kirk
    Does high school musical sitcom "Glee" go out of its way to be hostile to Christianity? Some may think so, given the matter-of-fact treatment in so many episodes of teen drinking, drug use, sex, pregnancy, and its acceptance of same-gendered relationships. As a progressive Christian and fan of the show, even I wonder at times if they are pushing the envelope a bit too far. I've often commented that I'm not sure younger teens should be watching the show. It is, after all, an exaggerated, satirical look at how adults view adolescence. I'd be a little worried if some middle-schooler...

    In Hollywood, the only truly serious sexual disease is virginity. It's a dire and embarrassing condition, desperately in need of elimination. Teenagers that still have "it" are woefully immature. They might as well consider themselves to be walking the school hallways in diapers. Along comes Fox Entertainment to enlighten us. Get ready. It's sick. Fox's "Glee" devoted an entire episode on Nov. 8 to setting up and celebrating the shedding of virginity by two teenage couples on the show. One was heterosexual, and one -- yippee! -- was homosexual. TV critics were raving in advance. Entertainment Weekly's Tim Stack all...

The LBGT publication asked the TV and theater star: "What would you ask people who cite Christianity as their justification for passing laws that discriminate against people?" Chenoweth replied, "I would ask, 'What would Jesus do?' It sounds so cliché and Pollyanna-ish, but I have a feeling if he were on the earth today, he wouldn't be walking around saying, 'You’re going to hell' and 'You're wrong, you're wrong,...

Palin is ticked off that "Glee" has cast Griffin, who has been harvesting comedy gold at the expense of the Palin family for the past two years, as a Palin-like character on an upcoming episode of the Fox show. Palin told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro she considers Griffin a "has-been." Palin was mostly concerned that Griffin would make fun of Palin’s children. "Kathy, pick on me, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids...

    A vile, homosexual-themed anti-Semitic musical play that was performed at Concord-Carlisle High School (CCHS) in December 2009 is the subject of community outrage. The high school has long been a center of aggressive homosexual indoctrination and the accompanying hostility toward religious belief. Intimidation of students and parents with traditional religious values has become an everyday occurrence there. Recently a group of CCHS teachers publicly "came out" as homosexuals and lesbians to a group of students - and encouraged the students to do the same -- in a widely celebrated after-school event. But this was possibly the most outrageous and insulting...
