I think one should see the original movie before starting this early 80s show. Before there was Glee there was decades before it, Fame. Based on a real NYC school, The School For The Performing Arts. Each student wanted to be famous in the arts and they had to take them all. It made my Catholic HS seem like a cakewalk. I most enjoyed watching the regular nonart teacher stress the importance of math and English to students who just wanted to focus on dance and acting. The senior citizen music teacher was one of my favs, a grump but dedicated.

Anyone recall this show?
