      • Feb 17, 2023
        if i could give it less i would
      • Feb 15, 2023
        It is a beautiful start for an epic musical show on network television, now on streaming.
      • Nov 13, 2022
        This series is definitely a must-watch. The characters of this show were really relatable to most and altogether really established a show of acceptance. Alongside the singing that contributed to the many aspects of the show, we as an audience were also caught up in a ball of entertainment with Quinn's Baby Drama. The first season of this show had its upside downs but yet still had the power to captivate you so much to continue watching the other seasons. Definitely for an audience who enjoys musicals. A very big Well done to the cast ( Dianna Agron, Corey Monteith, Mark Salling, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris, Jenna Ushkowitz, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Kevin Mchale ) and Producer Ryan Murphy.

        Boring and not my kind of TV.
      • Jun 22, 2022
        Absolutely rotten. Every cast member needs a real talking to as to where their careers are going. If I could give 0 stars I would. The singing is homophobic, and every character reminds me of the people that bullied me in high school, half of which passed away recently, just like the characters. Horrible TV show. I would rather scratch at my retina's with sand and glass than watch a single episode ever again. Uck.

        Glee em sua primeira temporada foi uma revelação total querendo ser mais que um High School Musical, com músicas populares reinventaram nesse começo de temporada. Com temas importantes da adolescência como bullying, homofobia, entre outros temas foi uma sacada muito inteligente de Ryan Murphy. Personagens e grandes vozes como Lea Michelle, Amber Riley, Cory Monteith, entre outros. Tudo nessa escola brilha, com semanas musicais das cantoras Madonna, Lady Gaga e muitas outras canções icônicas que marcaram épocas cantadas em um lindo coral, sempre me impressionei por eles pois é como se fosse uma força da natureza que arrepia demais. Saindo da música e entrando na trama desta 1° temporada que tivemos até a grávida de Taubaté, que fingiu a gravidez até o último minuto, trágico mas uma hora a verdade sempre aparece. Do começo ao fim é cativante os episódios, a escolha das músicas junto com temas importantes fez que muitos amassem a séries que vai dos clichês amorosos, problemas sociais, além de fazerem versões maravilhosas de músicas que amamos, ou começamos a amar por eles, linda Season!

        A very good start. Its something that music lovers can enjoy.
      • Jun 22, 2021
        i love the series it is my favourite
      • May 29, 2021
        In the first season I see it as a humorous series that I always believed would be her real destiny. Music, comedy, drama. The cast with the melodrama delivers lots of laughter and even moments of crying at times. Excellent cast.

        Had funny moments and good songs, some boring parts but overall 8/10
