There is nothing like Glee on TV.
It's easily the best new show of 2009 (I'm bias, I know) but what is there not to love about Glee?
To be honest, I wasn't a fan before because the plot summary didn't appeal to me. I remember muttering to myself "Oh great, now we have high school musical on TV" ~roll eyes~
What possessed me to change my mind you ask?
A friend recommended Glee.
So, why not right? If the pilot episode tanked, I could always split.
But it didn't and I never looked back.
Yes, the plot may lack originality. Since it's set in a high school, you could pinpoint the usual suspects. However, it takes nothing away from the show. The singing is flawless, my personal favorite (so far) is It's My Life/Confessions mash-up and the group rendition of Nelly's Ride with Me.
Each episode is a delightful mix of humor, drama, tension, a bit of angst and positive moral values.
High School Musical has nothing on Glee.
The villain is in the form of Sue Sylvester.
I'll get down on my knees and worship the ground that she walks on because she takes the meaning of wicked bitch to a whole new level.
I've never felt so much need to punch a TV character until her!
There have been plenty of shows that started strong and then fell from the peak of their first few episodes. Glee shows no signs of faltering. And even if it does, the twelve episodes that I have seen will stand among the best of 2009.
Yes, that good.
It's official, I'm in Glee.
