Storyline

When a High School Spanish teacher, Will Schuester, becomes the director of the school's failing Glee club, New Directions, he hopes to be able to rejuvenate it. The club competes in the choir competition circuit. It's been called "a High School Musical for adults", the series follows the club and its mixture of oddball members as they try and restore it to its former glory. It is a musical comedy in which the eager and ambitious students not only compete to win the Nationals, but also have to deal with the tough and cruel realities of their school, McKinley High. At the same time, Will is trying to rejuvenate his failing love life whilst preventing the school's cheer leading coach Sue Sylvester from sabotaging the choir. Written by WellardRockard

Trivia

Over the years, specially on the first couple of seasons, many actors/singers were rumored to guest star on the show, like Justin Timberlake (as Will's brother), Jennifer Lopez, Javier Bardem (as a has-been rock star), Anne Hathaway (as Kurt's lesbian aunt), Julie Andrews (as Kurt's grandmother) or Bette Midler, who actually asked Ryan Murphy on Twitter to be on the show. Bardem and Hathaway were reportedly approached for those characters, and it was actually Bardem himself who suggested his role. See more »

Irony Lives! . . .and has a soul
3 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As someone who gets hives when a Journey song comes on the radio, I was taken by surprise at how good Glee is. An exceptionally attractive and talented cast focuses a spotlight--both figuratively and literally--on the ultimate dweebs of high school: glee club.

It is no surprise that this show arises from the same writer for "Popular" . . . that short-lived and underrated second-tier network series with a similar setting. What is surprising is how well they integrate the music with the story line. What keeps it from being saccharine is the self-awareness and not-even-close-to-subtle wink to the camera that "yes, we are manipulating your feelings from high school." It is remarkably effective. At the same time it is a parody, it still connects us to that time when we all felt like the outcasts in High School. And make us feel like we could have had a voice if we only had a glee club like this one.
