After 121 episodes and over 700 musical performances, Ryan Murphy's all-singing, all-dancing, all-high-school-drama Glee came to an end this year, after its sixth and final season. The show started back in 2009, and those first couple of seasons in particular felt really fresh, and the series displayed an understanding of teenage life while also having a massive amount of fun with a variety of musical numbers, from making Journey's Don't Stop Believin' relevant again outside of that one bar full of old people that plays cheesy music on a Friday night, to mashing-up Bon Jovi and Usher. The quality perhaps dipped over the years, but this was always a show about growing-up, acceptance for who you are, and belting out a showtune, and the end was fittingly poignant, especially in the wake of Corey Monteith's tragic passing.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
