Glee was one off-the-rails show, but it truly made theater nerds everywhere feel justified in their love. William McKinley High School was home to Will Schuester’s Glee Club and gave us quite the cast of characters.

With Rachel Berry leading the charge, they were a group of losers that found their place in one another. It didn’t matter if you were team Finchel or you shipped Brittany and Santana, we were all part of the same world  –and we wanted to see New Directions succeed.

Sure, Glee maybe didn’t always have the best love from outsiders. Between the ship wars and everyone hating the covers of popular songs, there was a lot of negativity along with the positivity. So maybe now, when the rest of the world is negative, we can revisit Glee and just have fun watching theater kids sing classic songs and have a few silly romances.

The show would need a lot more guidance if it were to come back, but our nostalgia for the time surrounding Glee is what we miss most. Listening to those covers of songs and trying to sing along make up some of our best memories of the late 2000s, even if we begged for the Journey covers to end at the same time.
