Another Show to Look Forward to This Week: FOX's "Glee"

I've been waiting for a musical TV series and it has finally arrived. No more waiting for the musical episodes of Scrubs to come on. This series has singing and dance in every episode. The new FOX show "Glee" follows the story of a high school glee club and brings some of Broadway's best actors to TV. The show stars the fabulous Leah Michele from Spring Awakening and features guest artists like Kristin Chenoweth from Wicked.  And, I recently discovered one of the creators of the show graduated from James Madison University's School of Media Arts and Design, just like me. So a big shout out to a fellow SMADie, Chad. 

Following American Idol on Tuesday night, FOX will show a preview episode of "Glee", which officially will begin in the fall. If you want to learn more about the story line check out the extended trailer below. Or watch this video to hear from the producers/creators. If you still aren't convinced, just wait until they start singing "Don't Stop Believin'". What is it about that song? I always smile when I hear it. I'm hoping I will have the same reaction to each episode of "Glee".


  1. And don't forget Matthew Morrison who was great in Hairspray and South Pacific.

    Am definitely looking forward to this show. Should be fun.

  2. And Cheyenne Jackson and Josh Groban will we guest staring!

  3. Hey, I watched the preview episode tonight and really liked it, all thanks to your blog post. :)

    Also read a NYT review about the show. Check it out if you haven't already;

  4. I watched the pilot a while ago (thank you, Internet!), but kept forgetting to tell you my comments. It's pretty entertaining. It has the potential to be cheesy, but I think they'll try really hard not to be.

    Overall, I'm looking forward to see what they do with the show.

  5. Oh, and I disagree with the NYT review. I think Lea Michelle looks/sings more like Idina Menzel than Patti Lupone.
