This isn't so much a review, as much as it is a ranting about a good tv show. I know this is somewhat out of place, Glee being a TV show and all, but I really do like this show, so I felt it necessary to review it. I'll include some stuff about the second season too, because the second season is much better. When I first watched the show, I thought it was mediocre, but it had just enough to keep me watching. As I kept watching, it kept getting better and better, and it transformed into one …

Glee has a wonderful premise for a show, and it happily lives up to the promise of that premise much of the time. Its combination of wicked humor, talented performers, the fertile setting of a high school glee club should make a show that can't miss, right?      Well, mostly. When it plays for farcical laughs, Glee is great, and when it adds songs that play off that energy, it's fantastic. However, most of the time, it doesn't do that. Glee has a big problem: it can't decide …

Singing the Praises of Glee
With a seemingly endless buffet of vacuous reality TV shows (Keeping up with the Kardashians is still on?!) and horrible remakes of old favorites, a la 90210 and Melrose Place, Glee provides a refreshing and needed change in TV land. If "American Idol" and "The Office" had a love child, its name would be Glee. Catchy, emotional song and dance numbers provide the thematic arcs for the show, which discusses REAL issues that teens face, unlike say Gossip Girl, where the latest struggle …

Glee cast
glee  n. 1. Jubilant delight; joy.       Cashing in on the popularity of movies like "High School Musical" and the American public's growing love of dramedies, Glee may be Fox Network's next big hit. And why not? With sky-rocketing unemployment rates, the economy in turmoil and continuing war throughout the world, we're jonesin' for some jubilant delight, even if it's just on television.    Glee brings a cast of characters that are interesting, vulnerable …

I'm really torn about this show. I like the premise and love the singing and musical numbers (especially last week's mashups - Halo!), but wow, this show is really, really, REALLY problematic.      There is a lot of diversity in the cast, including the background characters, but all too often those characters (including those in the main cast) just serve as window dressing for the straight, white, (often male) ablebodied characters who are the show's focus. When I first started …

I think it's partly the economic environment and partly the fact we've ploughed through the Netflix instant pile, but we've started watching an episode of Glee every night on Amazon Video on Demand. I really enjoy musicals but really hate American Idol and any other type of talent competition, so I wasn't sure what the expect out of this show.      It's centered around a fairly typical high school where the jocks beat up the nerds and the nerds all belong to a music club called …

This is my guilty pleasure. Great voices singing songs that bring me back to my high school days.

Hmm.  The inspired li'l show that debuted in the first season has really veered off into some nasty territory in Season 2.  No longer content to just be a show about kids and their talents, now GLEE has openly embraced strong political messages, and perhaps it's the worse for wear.  That's not to say that the show doesn't still have strong reasons to tune in each week; it's only to underscore that you have to tune out the politics if you don't agree with 'em. …

I watched my first episode of Glee this season. The first show was hysterical with Sue and Will trying to take down "The Beast." The second show was all about "Britney" - yet it was missing the humorous stuff. I convinced my husband to watch it with claims that it was a great show, only to find that we turned it off after about 10 minutes. Being a Jane Lynch Super Fan, I will probably watch it sporadically - assuming there is nothing else on. But, it won't be one of my "too …

Goofy and irreverent, this show is just plain fun.

I am a gleek- a glee, geek- and I just thought that it is similar to the concept of finding common ground. Although the methods are not always the best practices to be promoting, there are instances of revenge and blackmail, etc, in the end they always see the errors of their ways and it is the glee club that grounds them and brings them together despite all their other differences of interests and personalities.

The May 11, 2010 episode was strange. Probably one of my least favorite eps ever, though I enjoyed Kurt's showstopper.

Surprisingly funny show--hope they stay away from all the angst and concentrate on the satire and the weirdness!

Glee is the highlight of my week. It's so absurd ad ridiculous and AWESOME! I hit "rewind" on my DVR after almost every number. Love it.

glee is highly addictive. Jane Lynch is reason enough to keep returning each week.

I love that they had Jill Scott's Hate On Me for tonight's show- so when's that guy that's the father of Quinn's baby going to have enough?

my love for #glee perplexes me ... it's equal parts genius yet kinda boring... yet still delivered chills upon chills in the closing number
