New TV show: Glee

Postby KarenZ » Tue May 19, 2009 10:21 am

Folks,

Heard this interview on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross yesterday about a new TV show on Fox which will be previewed tonight just following American Idol. The show is called "Glee" and from what I heard yesterray on NPR, it sounds like it might be something music-lovers will like. Time will tell. :-) (A little preview of the glee club performing Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" grabbed my attention.) Supposedly the series (which will officially start in the fall) is about a high school glee club - thus the name. More info at the link below.

I enjoyed this last night. I may have to tune in again in the fall to see what happens..... :)

Did anyone else tune in?

I watched it. I enjoyed the camp factor. While the show itself was funny, the music was taken seriously.

A Glee Club? I'm having a 'lost in translation' moment again - we don't have them over here.

Trailer looks like its a fun series and maybe we'll get it over here eventually.

Jela,

A glee club is another term for a choir or chorus. :-)

Folks,

Forgot to remind you all that the series began its regular run last night at 9pm EST. A fun show. Here's the LA Times' re-cap of last night's episode:

I LOVE this show! I still have a couple more DVRed episodes to catch up on. Sue is so absurdly funny with the awful things she says about everyone. I laugh out loud a lot when I'm watching Glee!

Thanks, Patti! I was wondering about that. :-)

According to The Oprah Show, the #1 most popular musical event on the show is the cast of Glee performing Queen's "Somebody to Love" linked below:
