This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Any of you watch the show "GLEE"?

Next week is the first season finale.

While watching a DVR replay of last night's episode I started getting gaming-related thoughts about the characters.

Finn as portrayed would be a lunk-headed fighter with a sword that means well.

Puck is definitely a Rogue or Thief - but he won't really do anything to hurt his adventuring party.

Rachel is a sometimes clueless Bard whose spells only works 50% of the time - but she has a very high opinion of her charisma or an over-estimate of it.

Kurt's Dad probably fits better in a TRAVELLER-esque RPG setting as a ship owner/captain or Ship's engineer.

I haven't watched it but my better half (who's a teacher and a singer) keeps hearing about it posively.

How is it?

Its a fun show to watch...and listen to . Nice sarcastic undercurrent at times - but in a good way.
Plus, all the actors do their own singing.
