A musical comedy-drama which originally focused on the high school glee club ‘New Direction’s competing on the show choir competition circuit, while its members deal with relationships, sexuality and social issues. By season 4 a lot of the show’s familiar faces have graduated, so the show shifted it’s focus to following the graduates, along with the school’s new recruits.
Since Sky took over airing the show from E4, it’s come under some unfair criticism for it’s scheduling. Season 2 aired in January 2011, and people complained about the long wait from the US air date. So for season 3 Sky tried to air close to the US air date, but people complained about it jumping weeks – caused by the gaps in the US scheduling… US scheduling can seem somewhat erratic, as the US networks will bump shows so they don’t get scheduled against things like major sporting events, or over US holiday weekends.
Really stuck at people complaining either way, Sky seem to have decided it’s better to wait and air Glee in a solid block from January, rather than to cause confusion by airing close to the US and having to skip weeks.
