Hopefully I'll be able to watch it. Looks like a type of show I'm interesting in seeing. Having Idol as it's lead in will (hopefully) be good for the ratings.

So, I was a Fame junkie in the 80s. I'll even cop to loving the first High School Musical. And teacher movies do it for me too...Goodbye, Mr. Chips...Dead Poets Society, Up The Down Staircase...oodles of 'em.

What a wonderful show. I enjoyed it thoroughly....humor...withering depiction of adolescent cruelty...and some great toe-tapping singing and dancing.

I loved it as well. Ryan Murphy has yet to truly disappoint with his shows. He is a true genius in my book. And of course I have a crush on the jock guy, who, and this may be wishful thinking, has major gay face LOL

Gayface? Definitely cute. Vancouver native, sings and dances and is a jock who plays Guitar Hero. Cory Monteith.

Mark I think I may be there with you in regards to having a new favorite show. Sweet, he's Canadian. Also, it seems the supporting actors can act quite well. And anything with Jessalyn Gilsig in it is something I have to keep an eye on.

AHEM *Victoria* native (raised here, born in Canada).

I was just gonna post about this so here's my original post but I mention him in the last paragraph

This was just a preview--the series starts in late Sep (odd I know)

I liked it a lot. I think it's the kinda show people will love, or hate (it's so stylized, etc). Ryan Murphy is the (uber gay) creator/head writer and I have mixed feelings about him--Popular was a nice satire on the typical teen drama and I loved it in the end, I loved Nip/Tuck at first (he was hired by F/X to make a "more outrageous" show similar to Six Feet Under and it was at first) but I lost interest the past few years--they just throw too much into it at the sacrifice of characterization or any cohesive plot. And his adaptation fo Running with Scissors was, I thought, awful but...

But yeah this was good and in many ways a return to Popular but with musical theatre thrown in--and I love that they cast so many real Broadway talents like Matt Morrison and umm the girl from Spring Awakening--instead of hollywood actors who could kinda sing.

Very strangely the jock character is played a by a guy I went to school with her ein Victoria, BC--he was a grade under me and always really nice but shy and a bit chubby--he was in the chorus of a musical I was in but never really hung out with any of the theatre people and I think he went to private school the following year. I didn't even know he persued acting (his bio says he was a cabbie in Victoria when he wa 19-20) but apparantly he was first discovered in Van by Don DeCoteau the homoerotic direct to DVD horror movie director (he's in all three Brotherhood movies, Beastly Boyz, etc). Anyway I hope this is a hit for him.

Isn't Victoria still Canada? LOL

Wow. Any out-of-school stories you can tell? :)

I really enjoyed this show. A lot. Enough that I was humming Journey and Amy Winehouse this morning. I did not know that the show creator was gay.

That is my one concern about this show. "Glee" clubs still are seen as pretty gay. And with two gay characters on the show (the male singer and, I am assuming, the "Cheerios" coach)...I am worried that this show might NOT hit the mainstream because people will be put off by how gay it is.

Does that make sense?

I didn't care about any of that. I just felt it was an hour of feel-good TV.

Hwo could you NOT knwo Ryan Murphy is gay? Look at th eshows he does--Glee is just overflowing with a queer sensibility ;) The gay sensibility might turn people off like you said but... We'll see--if it does then it's their fault. Nip/Tuck has been a hit despite that (but I guess all the breasts and other shocking elements keep anyone scared by that watching)

Victoria is on Vancouver Island, but Vancouver is on the mainland. It's confusing :P We're more a tourist city but peopel do grow up here (I went to junior high--not the school Cory went to--with Nelly Furtado who was a [[email protected]#$%^&*] and I have a lot of stories about). Cory like I said was only there one year or so, was kind aquiet, chubby, and nice and was in the chorus of a musical I was in. I don't have any gossip sadly (apparantly in a recent interview he said he hated high school so ther ya go :P )

Really quick on Glee, I absolutely LOVED the Pilot on Tuesday night. It was fun, fresh and entertaining. I have a good feeling this will be huge hit for FOX this fall, rightfully so.

Glee did okay in the ratings. It wasn't the "boffo" I'd hoped for...but I didn't know about the fact that there were TWO huge competitors on at the same time.

The Dancing with the Stars finale tangoed with 20.12 million viewers, on par with the show's year-ago disco ball hand-out. The Mentalist concluded its freshman run with 16.84 mil, up 720K. Fox's Glee debuted to 10.75 mil 1 and needs to resume its first season, like, yesterday! Fox notes that Glee was Tuesday night's No. 1 Twitter topic, while New Directions' version of "Don't Stop Believin" emerged as the No. 2 most downloaded song on iTunes.

Glee needs to be promoted like heck all summer, and they need to make rebroadcasts of that preview widely available...online...and at strategic moments during the Fox summer lineup.

I really enjoyed it too mainly because they sang songs I know. LOL Their version of "Don't Stop Believin" was awesome!

I liked Lea Michele/Rachel's voice and you could tell from her acting and signing that she's definitely from broadway - the way she projects everything.

I thought Cory Monteith/Finn's voice was kinda weak.

I love Ryan Murphy's TV work so I'm glad to see him back writing a show set in high school.

It was OK, I wasn't blown away by it. The singing was nice, but the members of the Glee club itself were so cliche and stereotypical in the pilot, which I guess was the intention anyway. I also have a feeling they're going to have some trouble balancing the comedy and more serious stuff too. I love abstract humour, but a lot of it fell flat to me in the pilot.

And is it me, or are Mr. Schuester's wife and that red head germaphobe teacher that has a crush on him essentially the same personality? The only difference is one is a germaphobe that encourages Schuester to flow his passions and the other is a compulsive shopper that wants him to find a better paying job. They're both really quirky and animated. They should've made them a little more different and unique in characterization, since it's obvious both of these women are going to play a big part in Mr. Schuester's life.
