Ryan Murphy has finally conceded what we all knew about those later seasons of Glee -they had some dreadful episodes.
After some wonderful moments in earlier seasons, he told Entertainment Tonight, “My favourite seasons of Glee were 1 and 2. We really created them in a bubble, and we didn’t care what other people thought, and we made it for us. And then what happened with me is, the show became a phenomenon.
“It was the first time ever that I got sucked into that fan social media stuff. Then, you would read about who people would like, and I think that I lost my way a little bit.”
Referring to his new series Pose, he added, “And I’m not doing that in this. If I was influenced by those other things, then I don’t think [writer/producers] Steven Canals and Janet Mock and Our Lady J would ever let me, anyway. So I feel like there’s just more checks and balances in place with this show.”
Pose, which centres around the the ballroom culture of New York City in 1987, is due to screen in Australia on Foxtel.
