I absolutely love Glee! I have been watching it from day one, and am currently pining for it :) I'm 13 years old, and I guess I'm pretty mature for my age (or so adults tell me) so it wasn't a stretch for me to watch Glee. A small issue is a wife deceiving her husband for a very long time about having a baby, and blackmailing a pregnant teen into giving her the child. There is also a lot of drug and alcohol talk in the earlier episodes of the first season. The main issue for me is sexual content. While I watch movies like Moulin Rough and TV shows like Friends, I kept on feeling a little bit nervous about my mom making me leave the room, which I absolutely hate. There was a storyline where a male character talks about sleeping with mothers after cleaning their pools, talk of sexting, a pregnant teenager, two cheerleaders who are possibly bisexual and do make out with each other (but not on screen, they briefly discuss it) and virginity is a HUGE thing on this show. While the earlier episodes are much more iffy then later ones, the Power of Madonna episode is completely about characters loosing their virginities, and two of them (who are in love with each other but not actually together) lie to each other about going through with having sex. One of them did, and said they didn't, the other one didn't and said they did. There is also a 30-something year old virgin. Parents need to know that sex on Glee is treated alarmingly casually, except by the pregnant teenager's parents, who are terrified at the thought of their child not being celibate. While teens are not SHOWN having sex, they are shown making out. Married couples, however, have sex more then teens do on this show. The raciest part of the whole show- in my opinion- was in the second episode of the first season, when they sang 'Push It' by Salt and Pepper. While that WHOLE episode was racy (seconded only to the Madonna episode. Or maybe tied by it), the 'Push It' scene showed teens in very sexual positions (while they had their clothes on) and might be a extremely informative to a teen or tween. One of my friends' parents quoted the scene to be 'Oh, so wrong but oh, so funny'. Also, a gay character is seen with paper sticking out of his zipper (purposely) he flaps it up and down at one point during the song. Other than the blatantly sexual stuff, there's lots of innuendos. I would say that they are reasonably easy for a young child to guess, and therefor the show would be subtly scarring. While Glee is alright for a mature teenager (by mature I mean responsible 13, any 14), keep kids twelve and under away from it, or else it will be all too informative and a little scarring to them, as well. I know this for a fact because of a few of my younger friends were pressured by siblings and other peers to watch it when it was not right for them, and they were a little disturbed by the show. Unfortunately, the plot line is deliciously addicting, and leaves you wanting more, even if you know you shouldn't be watching. It's a fact.
