i'm a gleek...

It's no secret I love musicals. But, a musical-based sitcom is a tricky concept for television, so when I first heard about Fox's show 'Glee,' I was quite skeptical as to how it would work.
Needless to say, 'Glee' has become my newest obssesion. 
It has just the right blend of quirk, fun, and music, along with some amazing and hilarious guest appearances from the likes of Victor Garber, Josh Groban, and Kristen Chenoweth. Two of the leads, Matt Morrisson and Lea Michele, are both broadway vets, originating roles in Hairspray and Spring Awakening, respectfully. And the angry cheerleading coach, played by Jane Lynch, will have you rolling on the floor with her one-liners; a personal favorite is "I don't trust a man with curly hair. I can't help but picture little birds laying sulfurous eggs in there, and it disgusts me." The characters have a quirky midwest-theatre kid style, too. Guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury has some of the cutest looks I've seen in a while, and Lea Michele's character Rachel is like the midwest Blair Waldorf with way less friends. Also, I'm generally addicted to Broadway-esque covers of pop hits. So it's a natural fit. 
If you haven't been watching, you can catch up with full length episodes on Hulu, or Fox's website, and new episodes are on every Wednesday at 9pm on Fox!

I couldn't find one with the actual video clip, but this is my favorite cover of "Don't Stop Believing!" <3
