    Mr. B, the choral director, is truly a money maker for the tissue corporations for all the tears of joy his students have evoked. Buy stock in tissues now, everyone, before the Oscars!

    I get what you're saying but give them time, they're only in the second season. They have already been criticized about "preaching" too much. Would you rather they simply use the show soley as a platform for social commentary? Or would you rather the show progress the way the writers see fit and give them time to spread out the messages?

    I can tell you if you load on the morals, people are going to lose interest...fast.

    Also, I would be careful to claim that theyve "defended" religions like Christianity and Judaism, in fact, they've parodied them quite a bit. They're not a moral compass and they certainly dont' claim to be role models – wait for next week. You can't just expect them to take up arms for all social issues. They're a TV show. If you care so much, step out from the blogs and make your own public statements.

    I am so proud of the instructor givigng oppurtunities to all these kids the one that touched me the most is having a kid named mohamed on his choir , something that the real Glee show failed to do .
    there was an interview with the director of glee projet Mr Ulrich on oxygen and all sorts of questions were directed to him which he asnwered the most , except my only question that i kept repeating which was: Glee has presented and defended all the religions Judaism, christianity and also the sexual orientation ect will there be a muslim carachter on the show to show what moderate and what not ?i got a nasty answers from other chatters but nothing from the directors, answers from chatters as : we do not want a muslim carachter have you forgetten 9/11 , or you are asking political answer...ect what so political about it ?didn't glee teach acceptance? a question that was left unawswred ....well guess what Mohammed brought tears to my eyes and answered my question , in real life yes but not in a fiction where directors choose what they want but not in purpose to make a difference.
