Keeping up with The Office, How I Met Your Mother, Mad Men and Project Runway, I hardly believed I had room in my busy TV schedule to get hooked on yet another show. However, some shows are worth staying up a bit later for.
I admit, I was a bit skeptical when Fox’s Glee first aired this fall. Really? Another hour of teen angst? No thanks.
But…it turns out I was wrong. Glee makes me gleeful with its wit, humor and ability to poke fun at the cliched scenarios of your traditional high school drama. These kids are smart, talented, and underdogs. How refreshing. Even the head cheerleader and captain of the football team have their issues.
It all starts with McKinley High’s Spanish teacher, Will Schuester, and his ambition to get the Glee Club up and rolling again. Incorporating the oldies, the classics and new pop songs with dance, the Glee Club starts making noise all over the school, attracting both praise and the malicious intent of cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, played by the hilarious Jane Lynch.
You can catch Glee Wednesday nights at 9/8c. You don’t want to miss it; I mean, where else are you going to see a high school football team start bustin’ a move to Beyonce’s “All the Single Ladies?”
