Unspoilery Glee thought [Nov. 23rd, 2010|09:26 pm]

Watching Glee tonight, I realize...it's not really an ensemble show any more. There are leads and there are supporting characters. And of the younger characters, Kurt is the lead. He gets the most screen time, the most dramatic plotline.

Now, sure, the writing isn't always stellar and the episode quality fluctuates wildly. But it amazes me that Glee has subtly brought Kurt to the forefront and kept him there: the first ever gay lead in a US network show. Ryan Murphy using, then undermining the conventions of teen TV. And on FOX!

I'm fascinated by how much the show has changed structurally, RM using the traditional boy/girl format as a Trojan Horse for what he really wanted to do.
