One of my favourite new shows is Glee, a musical teen comedy-drama (I refuse to write dramedy, comedrama or any other amalgamation of the two). Its about a high school “show choir” or “glee club” (anyone else kinda glad we don’t have those in this country? No? Just me?) set in Ohio.
I’m trying to think what else I can say to persuade you to watch it, but its probably best if you see the trailer first.
The songs in each episode are a good balance between chart hits and older tracks. I love the mash ups, in particular Mr Schusters mash up of “Don’t Stand So Close” and “Young Girl” (works surprisingly well I think!)
Glee is going to be shown in the UK on E4 early next year, but the pilot will be shown at 9pm on Tuesday 15th December. Which is the episode with Don’t Stop Believing. You can see why I love it.
