Trivia

Dianna Agron (Quinn Fabray) was the last person of the original cast to get a part. On her first day she had to do a scene with Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson) in which they 'made-out' together. Director Ryan Murphy told her to look sexy, but she was so nervous that she couldn't focus. See more »

Goofs

After Finn claimed his mother was having his prostate removed while actually going to Glee, Puck confronts him and claims "Chicks don't have prostates, I looked it up." However in a 2002 medical research study, it was found they do. See more »

Quotes

Sue Sylvester: High school is a caste system. Kids fall into certain slots. Your jocks and your popular kids up in the penthouse. The invisibles and the kids playing live-action out in the forest: bottom floor.
Will Schuester: And... where do the Glee kids lie?
Sue Sylvester: Subbasement.

Pilot (#1.1)
8 December 2019 | by ComedyFan2010See all my reviews

Well this is just a pilot so it may get much better but at this point I am not sure how long I will want to watch it. I already dislike one of the characters, Rachel. And not much has happened for me to start liking any of them. Well that cheerleader coach seems like she may become entertaining. That teacher who took over that Glee club because his wife and future kid matter less to him than some losers he is not related to. Let's see where it will go.
