Glee Finale: BIGGEST RIPOFF IN HISTORY

So I watched my first episode of Glee this morning and went into the experience with an open-mind. As a 6-time veteran of musicals from my grade school days (Oliver, 42nd Street, Into The Woods, Les Miserables, Guys and Dolls, Anything Goes, nbd), the premise of the show sounds pretty cool.

As the show went on, however, I realized the plot was eerily similar to something so near and dear to my heart that I didn’t know how to react.

What Happened in Glee:

So this guy Mr. Schuester

brings his group of rag-tag, diverse singers that he’s watched grow up and mature

to the big city for the sing-off national championships. He leaves them alone to do their own thing and sneaks off to relive the days that got away–his never-attained broadway career. He goes on stage, belts a song, someone hears it and next thing you know, word gets out that he should be the next big broadway star. He’s considering it, but tries to keep it quiet. Unfortunately for him, his crew of kids finds out and slightly questions his dedication to the team. Also, Mr. Shuster has a run-in with the opposing front-runner team’s coach

someone he knows from way back when, someone taller, darker, and more handsome, and someone who likes to make fun of his Little Giants-esque team.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME, GLEE.

WHO DO YOU THINK I AM.

If you saw this episode and thought it was original, please know it wasn’t.  It was simply the biggest rip-off in movie/TV history.

If you haven’t gotten it by now, here’s the original plotline that Glee JACKED.

So this guy Gordon Bombay

brings his group of rag-tag, diverse hockey players that’s he’s watched grow up and mature

to the big city for the junior hockey world championships.  He leaves them alone to do their own thing and sneaks off to relive the days that got away–his never-attained professional hockey career. He gets courted by some big-wigs, and words gets out that he should be the next big NHL hockey coach. He’s considering it, but tries to keep it quiet. Unfortunately for him, his crew of kids finds out and really questions his dedication to the team. Also, Bombay has a run-in with the opposing front-runner team’s coach,

someone he knows from way back when, someone taller, darker, and more handsome, and some who likes to make fun of his Little Giants-esque team.

THIS IS MY FIRST AND LAST TIME WATCHING GLEE

I’VE NEVER BEEN MORE INSULTED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN THIS MAD. EVER IN THE HISTORY OF EVER.
