I'm a G(l)eek

“By its very definition, Glee is about opening yourself up to joy.” The quote appears within the first minute of Glee’s pilot episode, and while the quote refers to William McKinley High School’s glee club it could just as easily be referring to the show itself. I loved it!

The show is a musical comedy that tells the story of a young and idealistic Spanish teacher, and former member of the glee club during its glory days, who takes on the seemingly dauntless task of restoring the glee club to its heyday and (dare he dream) making it all the way to Nationals. The show will have you cheering, smiling, and singing along to a great soundtrack.

Unfortunately (boo to Fox), the show doesn’t start until the Fall. This little slice of joy was just a teaser meant to keep us eagerly awaiting its official start. Let me say -- I can’t wait for Fall! (Note to self: patience is a virtue, patience is a virtue, patience is a virtue.)
