Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Glee is an edgy teen comedy featuring a diverse cast, positive messages of cooperation and acceptance, and topics such as homophobia, bullying, substance abuse, teen sex, death, and other envelope-pushing topics. There's some occasional iffy language ("bitch," "damn," "hell"), some derogatory terms such as "cripple" and "fairy," and occasional references to genitals. There's also a bit of name-dropping when it comes to brands, and the cast performs songs by an endless number of popular artists ranging from Aretha Franklin and Frank Sinatra to Britney Spears, Amy Winehouse, and Madonna.

Sexual Content

Teen sex, teen pregnancy, sexual orientation, and sexuality are frequently discussed/addressed, and one episode discreetly depicts several teen couples having sex for the first time. Some sexual euphemisms, dancing. Petting and other behavior visible among straight and same-sex couples.


Bullying is a theme. Fantasy violence sometimes visible. One main character is in a serious car accident; another dies.


"Bitch," "hell," "crap," "damn"; terms such as "cripple" also used.

Social Behavior

The general message is for students to step out of their cliquish boxes and work together. Supporting one another through difficult times, accepting people who are different from you, and finding positive ways of dealing with fear and trauma are themes throughout. Stereotypical references frequent but put into context; bullying, friendship, and homophobia are addressed.


Lots of music from various popular artists. Logos for Starbucks, Pottery Barn, iPhone; brands such as Marc Jacobs referenced.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking and drunken behavior visible; teen drinking doesn't always have consequences. Medical marijuana and OTC meds discussed.
