GLEE is back!

Lots of people were excited to see a new episode of GLEE return this week, but I have to admit that I am all new to the show. I just started watching it on DVD...but have already gotten the bug.

For those who have not seen GLEE, it is in its first season, and centers around a Glee Club at the fictional William McKinley High School in Lima, Ohio.


The writing is crisp and funny, the actors are talented, and it’s so fun to watch the singing, dancing--especially the “mash-ups” where they join two unlikely songs together. And I’m pretty crazy for the boy band, Acafella.

Among my favorites characters is cheer coach Sue, whose take-no-prisoners attitude knows no boundaries, and sweet Emma, the lovesick guidance counselor with germ “issues.”

How about you? Are you a GLEE Geek (or Gleek)? Who are your favorite characters?

And as a P.S., I just learned that GLEE is holding an open casting call for new cast members on Myspace! If you want to check it out--either to enter or vote--go to www.myspace.com/gleeauditions.

Hi,
I have watched Glee, but just a few times. And I did like it. In fact, it made me wish I could sing and dance and act! I think I'll have to get back into it.

I've caught a couple of episodes! The singing really draws you in!

I'm a total Gleek and I'm proud to admit it :)

Sue is definitely my favourite character. She's so hilariously mean.

Okay, I finished watching the DVD's, and now all I need to do is catch up with this week's episode on Hulu, and I'm in present tense with the rest of viewers.

And how about that Rachel belting out Nobody's Going to Rain on My Parade, huh???

Well, at least you're getting in the loop. I'd almost forgotten about that Acafella episode. Hello, my name is Celise. And I'm a Gleek. I can't wait to see the show next month. I don't really have a favorite character, however I like the fact that Will is such a great teacher.
