* FrenchJerk: The lead singer of Throat Explosion in season 5, Jean-Baptiste, who may or may not be french but who frequently use french words and invokes this trope, is this in spades. However, it's partially [[SubvertedTrope subverted]]: while he makes it very clear to New Directions that they aren't going to cut them some slack and ''crush'' them, [[EvenEvilHasStandards he is also angered when one member of their team acts disrespectful towards the memory of Finn, and became furious when he discovered that one guy of their team stole Finn's portrait, prompting him to kick him out of the team and mail back the portrait to the New Directions, while apologizing for what happened]]. Blaine sums it up nicely:

* FrenchJerk: The lead singer GayTheaterGeek: Kurt is a great example, mostly through some of Throat Explosion in season 5, Jean-Baptiste, who may or may not be french his musical number choices being from actual musicals and just mostly general stage musical trivia. He is arguably up against Rachel, even though she is heterosexual, but who frequently use french words and invokes this trope, there is this in spades. However, it's partially [[SubvertedTrope subverted]]: while he makes it very clear to New Directions a heavy implication that they aren't going to cut them some slack and ''crush'' them, [[EvenEvilHasStandards he is also angered when one member of their team acts disrespectful towards the memory of Finn, and became furious when he discovered that one guy of their team stole Finn's portrait, prompting him to kick him out of the team and mail back the portrait to the New Directions, while apologizing for what happened]]. Blaine sums it up nicely:she was probably influenced throughout her childhood by her theater-geek fathers.

''Glee'' was about a high school teacher's attempts to organize his small public school's show choir while dealing with his personal issues and the torrid personal lives of the students around him. The first episode alone featured music from such disparate sources as ''Theatre/GuysAndDolls'' and Journey (providing the series' iconic BootstrappedTheme, "Don't Stop Believin'"), and the show goes on to showcase everything from Creator/CharlieChaplin to Music/LadyGaga.

Although the first half of Season 1 was well received and put all of its main cast in the spotlight, Glee has become one of Fox's most divisive shows. This was helped by the fact that before the first season was finished it was renewed for both a second and third season, both with 22 episodes. A fourth 22-episode season was ordered for 2012. The show finished its fifth season, as part of another double renewal deal. It was later confirmed by Creator/RyanMurphy that the sixth season would also be the final season, and it ended on March 20, 2015 after six seasons and 121 episodes.

* HideYourLesbians: It is safe to say that the gay couples were not given anywhere near as much representation on-screen for a good portion of the series -- subverted in the final season mostly because there wasn't a heterosexual OfficialCouple (and instead two gay weddings with another three same-sex relationships compared to Sam and Rachel sharing a kiss so he could complete the set.)

--->"They didn't want me to tell them what to f***ing do. They didn't want me to tell them how to treat each other or what the world was like at the end of the day. I wish I could go back and do that differently with a lot of those actors. Some of them I'm still very close to Creator/LeaMichele, Chord Overstreet, Creator/DarrenCriss but there were [[Creator/DiannaAgron some]] that didn't work out well, and I regret that."

* ConfettiDrop: Nearly every show choir competition has one when they announce the winners, but the two most notable ones in the series are when the New Directions throw confetti over the audience from slushy cups when performing "Loser Like Me' and when a similar thing happens but is followed by masses of confetti raining down when the glee club return to [=McKinley=] after winning Nationals in season 3.

** The name of the glee club when Sandy was in charge was "Rhythm Explosion", and the Nationals competition in 2010 that New Directions didn't make it to was going to be in Orlando.

* CutSong: Several, due to last-minute changes or time constraints. Some of them managed to even be recorded and[=/=]or filmed, with the latter occasionally released as deleted scenes. A list can be found [[http://glee.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Deleted_Songs here]].

* AllThereInTheScript: ** Will was an ''economics major'' in college. Even with a teaching degree afterwards, he'd have to specialize in math or economics, or be a substitute. Also explains his canon lack of talent in Spanish. ** Artie is actually spelled "Arty". Brittany is also referred to by the writers as "Brit".

* TakeThatUs: The show did start throwing some shade at itself the longer it ran. ** Creator/RyanMurphy in October 2015 finally criticised himself for how he treated some of his actors, saying that he thinks his negative relationship with them is what caused the show to go downhill. He even specifically (enough) apologizes: --->"They didn't want me to tell them what to f***ing do.
