Today I watched the new show "Glee". I had heard some really good things about it- that it was unique and hilarious, and that I would love it. I did think it was hilarious, but it had quite a few sexual remarks. In part of the show, the students are trying to recruit more members to their Glee group (I can't remember exactly what they call it), and they decide the only way to get their peers' attention is to sing and dance to a song about sex. "Push It". While it may have been hilarious for the show, I think this actually brings up a true point. Is the only way we can get teens to watch or listen to something is by putting sex in it? Obviously there is sex in this show, and in so many others. Sex sells, and gets viewers, but can nothing else compete?


  1. I only watched the pilot one, but I thought it was good, not my favorite. But it's true, it seems that everywhere in the media there has to be some form of sexual content in order to sell it. The way the media portrays teens, always thinking about sex, really has form this stereotype that unfortunatly many teens end of wanting to become because the media makes it look like it is "cool" to be that way.

  2. I watched the pilot and it was so funny. I can't wait to see more of it. I hope it is good and not crap like some of the shows on now.
