Overview

This release from the acclaimed musical series Glee includes all 22 episodes of the show's first season, following high school choir director Will Scheuster as he attempts to save the woefully unpopular Glee Club at William McKinley High School. Despite finding a surprising number of gifted performers in the student population, Will faces obstacles, like the meddling sabotage of cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester.In the pilot of this musical comedy-drama from Ryan Murphy (Nip/Tuck) about the misfits who make up a high-school glee club, teacher and former glee-club star Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) must find a male singer to match diva Rachel (Lea Michele). Then he hears football quarterback Finn (Cory Monteith) singing in a shower. Meanwhile, Will's wife (Jessalyn Gilsig) wants him to get a better-paying job. ~ Paul DroeschThe first season opens with the club's first performance. It's not what Will expects, and it gives his rival, cheerleader coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch), added ammunition. But it is crowd-pleasing. Meanwhile, Finn's cheerleader girlfriend, Quinn (Dianna Agron), is becoming jealous of Rachel; and Will's wife, Terri, wants to buy a house, so Will has to scramble to earn more money. ~ Paul DroeschWill forms an all-male a cappella group, but when he neglects the glee club, the kids decide to hire a well-known choreographer to coach them. Meanwhile, Mercedes falls in love. Josh Groban appears as himself. ~ Paul DroeschWhile Kurt tries out for the football team (taking a page from the glee playbook with him), Rachel storms out of glee practice when Will gives a plum part to Tina. Meanwhile, Sue comes up with a new plot to boost her program at glee's expense; and Quinn has news for Finn. ~ Paul DroeschWill enlists a former classmate (Kristin Chenoweth) to spice up the glee club and her efforts appear to be going well. But a key member thinks otherwise. ~ Paul DroeschWill challenges the kids to a mashup showdown, with the boys taking on the girls; Terri takes a job as school nurse to keep an eye on Will, despite the fact that she has no health-care training. ~ Paul DroeschSue makes the Glee kids compete against each other to sow seeds of dissension, then gets called into Principal Figgins' office, along with Will. Meanwhile, the kids rally to show their support for Quinn. ~ Paul DroeschWill is inspired by the kids to create a mash-up for a special occasion. Meanwhile, the cool kids at McKinley High get a taste of their own medicine, and Sue displays her softer side. ~ Paul DroeschIt's Rachel vs. Kurt in a "diva-off" for the solo in Glee's rendition of "Defying Gravity." Meanwhile, the school can't pay for a wheelchair-accessible bus for Artie for the trip to regionals, so Shue challenges his charges to raise the money; Quinn's medical bills are beginning to pile up, and she challenges Finn to come up with money to pay them; and Sue must hold an open tryout for the Cheerios. Her selection has Shue scratching his head. ~ Paul DroeschMr. Schuester divides the glee club into couples for a ballad, but it turns out to be not so good an idea when one kid gets sick. Meanwhile, Finn has dinner with Quinn's parents (Gregg Henry and Charlotte Ross). This turns out to be a bad idea as well. ~ Paul DroeschWill is concerned that Sue is leaking info, so he visits with a rival club's instructor (Eve) while the kids check out their competition. Meanwhile, Kurt gives Rachel a makeover, and he may have hidden motives for doing this. ~ Paul DroeschBudget cuts mean no yearbook photo for the glee club, but Rachel is the only one upset about this. Meanwhile, Quinn tries to get into the Cheerios yearbook photo; and Will and Terri face serious problems in their relationship. ~ Paul DroeschQuinn's secret unravels as the sectionals approach, threatening club cohesion at the worst possible time. Meanwhile, Sue's scheming continues apace (and then some); and Will ponders an important decision as Emma and Ken's wedding nears. ~ Paul DroeschFresh off their Sectionals win, the glee kids work on new numbers for Regionals. But club cohesion (not to mention Rachel and Finn's budding romance) is threatened when Rachel becomes involved with a competitor named Jesse (Jonathan Groff). So Will visits the competitor's coach (Idina Menzel) to try to discern Jesse's true intentions. Meanwhile, Will is single again, but that isn't necessarily good news for Emma; and Sue is back from her sojourn in Boca Raton and spoiling for a fight with Will. ~ Paul DroeschWhen the glee guys begin to bully the girls, Will turns to the music of Madonna to give the girls an ego boost and teach the boys respect. (They perform Madonna's "Express Yourself" and "Like a Prayer"). Meanwhile, Kurt and Mercedes give Sue a makeover. ~ Paul DroeschKurt fixes up his dad (Mike O'Malley) with a date in hopes of having a regular family; Sue demands that the Cheerios diet in preparation for a magazine interview; and April Rhodes (Kristin Chenoweth) returns to help Will save New Directions. ~ Paul DroeschWill responds to a rumor about the glee kids that has spread around McKinley High. Meanwhile, Sue is embarrassed by a video of her performing the Olivia Newton-John song "Physical." Newton-John has a cameo as herself. ~ Paul DroeschRachel is alarmed when she gets a sore throat. Meanwhile, Kurt makes a personality adjustment to please his dad; and Puck looks to climb in social ranking by making a calculated move. ~ Paul DroeschWill's high-school rival (Neil Patrick Harris) shows up and causes trouble for the glee club. Meanwhile, Rachel struggles with a longstanding personal problem; and Artie's dream leads to an adventure. ~ Paul DroeschWill tells the glee kids to express themselves through the music of Lady Gaga; Rachel has an encounter that changes her life; and Tina goes Goth. ~ Paul Droesch
