Greater Than: Ryan Murphy's Teens

It's kind of amazing how much better a show American Horror story is than Glee.  So much better, in fact, that is seems kind of unfair to compare the two.  We need a much more even playing field here.  And for that, we need to go old school.

From 1999 to 2001, Ryan Murphy presented us with a quirky cast of teens trying to make it through high school.  There was the really dumb blonde.  There was the bitchy mean girl who was masking some serious insecurities.  There was the popular blonde and the unpopular brunette who had feelings for the same dopey guy.  There was an androgynous teacher.  There was a restaurant named after a stale piece of bread. I know it may sound familiar, but Popular wasn't Glee.  It was WAYYY better.

Popular > Glee

Go find Popular on DVD.  Now.  And there is a new episode of Glee on tonight as well.
