“Glee” DVD Review

I have a new favorite show!  I recently watched “Glee, Vol. One: Road to Sectionals” and I LOVED it!  I cannot wait until Season 2 comes out – it was so good!  I was in Show Choir for a year in high school and I could relate to some of the stuff in the show.  Plus, it is so easy to watch Will Schuester – the hottie teacher in charge of Glee.  Dang!  If I had a teacher like that in Show Choir, I would have spent my whole high school experience signed up for his class.  Poor Will to put up with that wife of his – she was just terrible.  Then there is Emma Pillsbury- she’s adorable and has   I loved Sue Sylvester.  Oh man!  She is so inappropriate and funny, it’s unbelievable.  There is no way anybody in real life could get away with some of the stuff she got away with.  Plus, the students in Glee Club – boy, can they sing?  I am definitely going to be buying the soundtrack for this show!

“Glee” is TV’s hottest, funniest, and most-talk about new series!  Season 1 came out on DVD in December 2009 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  You’ll love both the characters and the amazing musical numbers.  The musical numbers were one of the things I really loved about this show.  Almost every episode ended with an amazing performance by the Glee Club or some competing team.  It was really enjoyable to watch.  In “Glee,” William McKinley High School once had a champion glee club, but it diminished.  That is when idealistic Spanish teacher (Matthew Morrison, Music & Lyrics) (aka hottie teacher) takes up their cause, vowing to tranform the rag-tag group of singers and dancers into champions.

“Glee” was created by Ryan Murphy, also the creator of “Nip/Tuck,” and stars Jane Lynch (The 40 Year Old Virgin), Jessalyn Gilsig (“Nip/Tuck”), and a group of talented new actors and actresses including Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, and Chris Colfer.  On the DVD are 13 episodes, as well as the Director’s cut of the pilot episode; exclusive behind-the-scenes featurettes; audition videos from the talented cast, and the hit music topping the charts at iTunes, such as cast versions of Queen’s “Somebody to Love,” Heart’s “Alone,” Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin,” Celine Dion’s “Taking Chances,” Rihanna’s “Take a Bow,” Carrie Underwood’s “Last Name,” Jazmine Sullivan’s “Bust Your Windows,” Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” and REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling.”
