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.
I’d totally have been one of the “Glee Kids” if my school had one! I was a choir geek as it was :D
Glee is ace!
I have already set the pilot to record via PlayTV! I’ve convinced Dave that it is something he will like to watch! x
The Girl says
I keep seeing the adverts for this and teling myself I need to remember to watch it. I reckon it’s right up my alley. (And to be honest, I’d have loved a glee club over here if there’d been one! But then. I was in the choirs at school. GEEK!)
I’m dying to see this! Can’t wait for it to start on E4. When I did Camp America, I was placed at a theatre camp. (It was the weirdest place ever, by the way. It was like High School Musical meets Fame in upstate New York.)
From what I’ve seen of the show, my kids were basically Glee kids, haha. I can tell I’m going to love it all ready.
