Breathless

I have a hard time finding the words to explain exactly why this is the ONLY --- I mean the ONLY --- show on tv that my daughter and I (or anyone else in the fam, for that matter) schedules into our lives.

I have a hard time finding the words to explain exactly why this is the ONLY --- I mean the ONLY --- show on tv that my daughter and I (or anyone else in the fam, for that matter) schedules into our lives.
What is it? It leaves me breathless.
If you are at all vocally or theatrically inclined, this show is the most compelling phenomenon since the Cellblock Tango number in Chicago.
I know they use Autotune (but not as much as Akon or Cher do!), and I know the performance situations are often implausible, but there is also something so captivating and compelling and gut-plucking about this show that makes it absolutely a not-to-be-missed event. Every Wednesday.
Be there. Or be a Cheerio.

I admit, I watch Glee primarily for the music numbers. I certainly find the show itself amusing from time to time, but with a cast of stereotypes instead of characters, the show can tend toward storylines that seem half After School Special and half soap opera. And since I'm not really anything like most of those stereotypical characters, I don't really identify with any of them. So while the show can be fun to watch, most of the enjoyment I feel comes from the music. Which Glee does very, very well. I'm amazed, actually, how much music---and of so many types!---the show manages to squeeze into each episode. As long as they keep doing that, I'll keep watching!

    Love this Glee.V.D.

    I wasn't too gleeful over the show in the beginning. I saw it as a High School Musical spinoff that was taking up half of Fox's commercial space. But once I actually watched the show, I was hooked. Some may call Glee cliche (and that's what I initially thought), but the combination of unique music arrangements, exciting choreography,clever touches , romantic moments, and drama makes for a multilayered viewing experience. Even if you don't become a "Gleek" after viewing one episode, watch a few more, and the show's charm will begin to wear off on you. Glee is highly replayable, and I found my appreciation for the show to grow with every viewing. The characters' quirks, snarky comments, and sentimental moments helps them to become much more than the stereotypes which they are intially revealed to be. The show has its shortcomings (forgotten plotlines, overdone drama), but the characters are so offbeat and amusing that I found myself caring less and less. My hope is that adults aren't repelled by the High School Musical-esque facade--they will be missing an comical and heartwarming treat.

    A Great Purchase

    Glee - Season 1, Volume 1 - Road to Sectionals was very entertaining. The extra features were a nice addition. How this show was conceptualized was enlightening. It was so nice to see that the creators/producers were willing to take a chance on these actors who were not as well known. If you enjoy musicals, this is a must buy. I am looking forward to the release of Season 2.
