What's better than watching Beyonce sing her hit song "Put a Ring on It?" Watching a gay high school student help the football team loosen up by teaching them her hip-swaggering, ass-smacking routine. Then seeing him do a solo dance in order to kick the final field goal that wins the game, whereby he wins the hearts of the previously homophobic players, his macho dad, and everyone in the stands. Yeah, that's not your average TV, but if you missed this ''take those gender sterteotypes and shove it" episode of the new must see TV show, Glee, you can watch a clip below or download episodes on Amazon (you won't regret it, they are great). Glee, from the creators of Nip/Tuck, is a fantastic one-hour weekly (Wednesdays on Fox) dose of musical comedy, set in a midwestern high school, where the glee club is full of social misfits who all share a common passion for great song and dance (and the covers run the gamut from Journey to Kanye West, appealing to both late boomers and their kids).The queering of football isn't the only stereotype the writers topple either, the Glee Club is taught� by a cute Justin Timberlake wannabe (not a Britney Spears wannabee), and� his arch-nemesis, the cheearleading coach, is mercifully not cast as your typical blonde over-achieving mom reliving her glory days (usually played by someone like Courtney Thorne Smith). No, Jane Lynch, an out-of-the-closet dyke actress, plays the drill-sergeant-like� coach whose every biting utterance is hysterical.As a mom who watches� TV largely with her 13-year-old and 7-year-old daughters, we all find something to enjoy in this show. My kids are bombarded with the most mind-numbing cliches from Disney. They're both part of the High School Musical demographic, and while I enjoyed that musical for many reasons, its cast was utterly predictable, with a gay character who was not out, a blonde primadonna, and a male lead who could only be truly successful if he was both an athlete and a performer. In Glee, our talented misfits include an overweight African American teen, an Asian girl with a stutter, and a boy in a wheelchair. Even the requisite stud has what I can only imagine was an intentionally downgraded characteristic: an ugly mohawk. That said, the show is not without plenty of its own stereotypes, but I'll take any improvement, especially if you can dance to it.httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmSPeBLR678
