From Ryan Murphy, the creator of "Nip/Tuck," comes Glee, a new comedy for the aspiring underdog in all of us. The show blends satire, music, comedy, and rich, and multidimensional quirky characterization into an enjoyable hour of television.
More after the jump.
Here is the preview:
Since it comes from the creative team behind "Nip Tuck", there is no problem with dialogue, pacing, or character development. But, what makes this show great is the music. This factor is greatly enhanced by the fact that the singing cast members are former Broadway stars. Three songs, “On my Own” from Les Miserables and choir versions of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” and Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” are already on Itunes, and the show is expected two have two soundtracks before the end of the first season. Tonight’s episode features show stopping numbers numbers with Kanye West's "Gold Digger" and Salt N Pepa's "Push It." At SDCC, the producers stated that there will be more striking musical choices in the future, including a late-season episode that will feature songs by both Barbra Streisand and the Rolling Stones. I should also note that star Cory Monteith told the crowd he has his own view of the show's premise: "It's like if 'High School Musical' had been punched in the stomach and had its lunch money stolen."
Although the director’s cut of the pilot aired last week, it is still available here.
The Glee Club has their first performance in front of the whole school. This leads Quinn to realize that Rachel has feelings for Finn; therefore, Quinn goes through great lengths to keep her man. Meanwhile, Will's wife reveals some unexpected news, that force him to figure out some things. Will also finds out that he must recruit more people for New Directions in order to show up at Regionals.
And the trailer:
I don’t the President will sing, unless of course he decides to watch Glee after his speech, then all bets are off.
