Are you suffering Glee withdrawal symptoms?

The first season of one of the best shows on TV ended on Friday night with a great episode that had all the singing, dancing, and drama that I have come to love.  If you watch Glee you know what an awesome show it is and if you don’t watch it you really don’t know what you’re missing.  For the uninitiated Glee is set in McKinnley High School in America and is about the ups and downs of a group of teenagers who belong to the school’s Glee Club (like our school choirs but so much better).  All the stereotypical high school groups are thrown in with lots of teenage issues, which doesn’t make it sound all that appealing but when you add some great musical numbers such as ‘Don’t Stop Believing,’ ‘My Life Would Suck Without You,’ ‘Jump,’ and ‘Gold Digger,’ and some cool dance moves you’ve got a great show.

The music is the best part of the show for me and I can’t get enough of the songs.  While driving to the West Coast and back last week both of the soundtracks got played endless times yet I didn’t get sick of the songs.  If you’re like me I’m sure you’ll have the songs stuck in your head for days.  We now have both Volume One and Volume Two in the library to help you get over your Glee withdrawal symptoms so that you can survive until Season Two returns later in the year.

    I’m with Zac.I loved “Glee”,and I’m in my mid fifties! Even though the storyline was pretty corny, the songs and dance were great. What a talented group of teens. Can’t wait for the next series.

    I guess that means you’ll be glee-pleted, until the series is gleapeated?

    I have never seen “Glee” but what should be reviewed in a new Times Literary Supplement but this very show which their critic liked a lot. I had no idea that it was written by the man who wrote “Nip/tuck” which I found the most annoying of the cable TV shows that push the envelope in the manner of a small child running into a room, yelling “poos” and running out again. The TLS critic noted that the sardonic element running through “Glee” was similar to the plastic surgeons show but the sardonic in the let’s-pu-on-a-show series was less nasty.

      Glee is closer in feel and subject to another show by the same writers called ‘Popular’ that was on in the 90s. It challenged stereotypes and tackled issues that teenagers face, much like Glee does.
