(Fox) The members of the McKinley High School glee club learn about life’s Big Issues – including bullying, teen pregnancy, young love, and sexual identity – through the magic of music in this musical-drama-comedy. Standout students include openly gay Kurt (Chris Colfer) and wannabe Barbra Streisand belter Rachel (Lea Michele). The kids’ storylines intersect with those of the adults in their lives, including earnest glee club adviser Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) and cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (a scene-stealing Jane Lynch), McKinley High’s tormentor in chief.
