Glee: The Alignment Chart

My friend Christopher Bird has a thing for alignment charts. If you don’t know what that means, these people will explain it to you.

This week Christopher made the Mad Men alignment chart, followed by the DS9 alignment chart, and since he’s declared Alignment Chart Week at his his blog, I suspect there’s more to follow.

It seems like the sort of nerdy thing I like to do, so I thought I’d have a go at it - hey, it’s Alignment Chart Week! - and because I thought it was a fairly safe bet that Christopher wasn’t going to do one for Glee, I decided to step in to the breach. The world needs a Glee alignment chart, right? It was either this or classic Warner Brothers musicals. Maybe I’ll do that one next.

I know someone will surely call me a misogynist for putting women in all three ‘evil’ slots, when I could have put Sandy Ryerson or Dave Karofsky or Brian Ryan in there. My response to that is, shut up; evil women are awesome.

    I agree with most of your chart, but move Santana to CE, Rachel to NE (she’s eeeeeeeeevil) and the Principal becomes LN.

    I know Rachel’s likely to be the most controversial one on there, but I couldn’t leave Terri out of the Evils, and Rachel is so bound by her sense of social order and her personal code of stardom that I think she’s a good fit where she is. She’s not entirely evil; she’s just been evil a lot this season.

    [...] Andrew Wheeler, in homage, did an alignment chart for Glee here, although he made Rachel not be evil, which – no. Tell The World: These icons link to [...]

    I gave up on Glee pretty early on this season, but I’d put Kurt at Chaotic Neutral (some of his actions when his mom and Finn’s dad first got together weren’t particularly great, as well as his earlier attempts at looking straight at Mercedes’ expense), Shu as Chaotic Good…and from what I have seen of this season, the writers keep flipping both Rachel and Sue between Lawful Neutral and Lawful Evil.

    I’d also throw Sandy Ryerson (Stephen Toblowsky’s character) in there as Neutral Evil, and bump Santana up to Chaotic Neutral with Puck. In fact, I think a good chunk of the teen cast could qualify as Chaotic Neutral, which is probably why I think Glee feels (or used to feel) emotionally authentic despite being absolutely unrealistic.
