Over the last few months, I’ve been reconnecting with Glee – I started from the start and built my way up to watching the Season 6 finale which I finished just five minutes ago.
I’d not seen Season 5 or Season 6 due to health issues last year swiping out most of my TV Schedules, plus Season 6 was only released a few weeks ago, so I appreciate to many this post is old hat to some.
I was aware of, and championed the show right from the very first moments. It’s safe to say I was already invested well before “Don’t Stop Believing” became the thing that it did. At that time, practically nobody in the UK seemed to have heard of the show, as it wasn’t even optioned yet.
I’ve literally just spent the entire last twenty minutes in absolute floods of tears – the ending of Glee was fantastically well done. There’s always a mourning after a show you follow for so long ends – in this case 6 years. I honestly don’t think there’ll be another show that ever comes close to this. I know that seems foolish to say, but the journey (pun not intended) promised in Season 1, Episode 1 has gone right the way through the years and stayed true to itself. Few TV Shows these days break traditional genres – they all try to be edgy but end up looking stupid – Glee managed to do this just by championing anyone who felt ready to invest in something different.
A programme that will fondly stick with me for decades to come!
