The Glee cast

Have you guys already saw this show? Amazing isn’t it? If you’re not, then I suggest you guys to watch it.

What is Glee all about?

Glee is an American musical dramedy (I don’t know much about this genre but possibly, it got to do with drama and comedy) television series that airs on Fox. It focuses on a high school show choir, also known as a glee club, set within the fictional William McKinley High School in Lima, Ohio. It consists of quirky characters such as the football jocks, the bitchy cheerleaders, high-achieving wannabe star, aspiring diva, a rich flamboyant soprano, asian-american gothic student and paraplegic electric-guitar playing student.

Compared to High School Musical, this show is more edgier and darker.  According to Glee creator Ryan Murphy,  he wanted to create a “postmodern musical”, rather than “doing a show where people burst into song”, drawing more heavily on the format of Chicago. Cory Monteith also stated at Comic-Con that he had heard Glee described as “as if High School Musical had been punched in the stomach and had its lunch money stolen. (Source from Wikipedia).

A pilot episode of the show was broadcast after American Idol on May 19, 2009 and the first season began airing on September 9, 2009.

Here’s the trailer for glee and a rehab performance from the pilot episode.
