MY THOUGHTS

I LOVE this show!  I loved watching as much the second time as I did the first time.  Glee is full of singing, dancing, and a very hot teacher!  The singers are amazing, Jane Lynch is hilarious, the principal is hilarious, and what else can I say?  Oh yeah, Will Schuester is hot!  I look forward to more Glee episodes to come.  Thank you to 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment for an amazing show!

    It’s funny because I never watched Glee until I won the DVD for my sister’s birthday-Then I slowly started watching the episodes and before you knew it, I was up until 3 am watching episodes. LOL

    Now, I’m a gleek!
