Not your fault and it's worth the wait. I just need to get on the ball and remember to watch GLEE when it comes on. I'm not much of a TV person, so it's easy for me to miss.

Glad you are having fun with GLEE and that we can be GLEEKS even if we aren't teeny boppers. emoticon

Oh I'm so sorry! I had no idea! Thought it was completely free. I've only used it a handfull of times.

Irene, did you get caught up?? Anyone watch last night's Glee?? I thought it was great! The music, the acting... everything! Santana FINALLY got a taste of her own medicine! And Finn FINALLY got another solo! Thrilled!! Just hate that we have to wait 2 weeks for the next one.... *sigh*

I loved GLEE because It was like the underdogs finally ruled the school. A silly drama group was no longer over looked, they were on top. They were popular and even had football players and cheerleaders on their team lol. I have been a fan since day 1, but sadly I have been slipping this season. I just saw my first episode of the season this week! I have to catch up, fast.

One of my sisters kept telling me to watch it because I'd like it as much as she did. Like you, it took me awhile to see what she was talking about. Now I know all the characters and the songs and the names of each production better than she does.

What a delight each episode brings into my life.

My boyfriend watched it and told me that I would like the show. Took me a while to watch it but when I did, I was stuck. What I like is how they do their own versions of good songs and also how the show introduce new songs to you, like a lot of muscical songs.

Right on, SeaStar. Back in the dark ages when I was in highschool, we lived on musicals. Loved to dance and sing. I'm just crazy about GLEE!!!

I loved the one when Kurt came back to his friends at Mckinley.

My sister introduced me to Glee and I've been hooked ever since. I love the whacky stories, love interests, and most of all: The music. It really gets me rocking when nothing else does and I need all of that I can find. Even though most of the episodes are terrific, every once in a while it gets a little off center or too dark for my taste. However, there are a lot I love to watch over and over again.

I need to go check out some of the other sites. Oh, and I keep wondering why the writers don't have a connection between the singers and the band???

...for a lot of reasons! I love the music (often I sing along and replay episodes), the story-lines are often touching. Plus I think we all remember the types from high school...the "Puck's", the "Quin's", etc...and the fact those personalities are amplified is hilarious most all the time. And then there's Sue Sylvester...what a hoot!
I wish Principal Figgins were in more episodes, and I hope someday they introduce Rachel's two dads.

I love it because it's so creative, some of the characters are just whacked and we can laugh at their dark sides, and because it's a smack in the face to the more conservative parts of the network that carries it. I love the stuff they get away with!

I can't set my own life to music, so I do the next best thing and watch every musical-related show I can. Never missed an episode of Fame, and Glee is for the next generation in my opinion. :-)
Here in the UK I've only seen season 1, and I'm looking forward to season 2 very much.
What's not to like? Great songs, great singers, great moves, great characters, great plot twists, and a lot of tongue-in-cheek humour!
Hugs,

I fought even watching the show for a whole season. I am not much of a TV person; I don't focus on it. I like to have something that is easy to follow so I can do other things at the same time. The music really pulled my in because I am so motivated by it. I love the twists and smashes to all the music I normally love. The story line is easy to follow and I love when they throw in "shock effect" scenes.

Why do you love Glee?
Well it is because it is such a great show. I also love the underdog. The music is awesome. I watched the first episode out of curiosity and fell in love. I can't say I have loved every episode. But I do love the music.

There are so many reasons to love Glee! I love the music, the characters, the story lines, the drama. I have a good friend who is just as much a fan as I am so it gives us a commonality to discuss at work. We have even been to see the cast live in NYC. It is exciting to have another friend who knows one of the writers. I can't find one reason to love it more than another. I just do.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Where do I start? I was in show choir in high school, I was in show choir in college, I went to college and studied music education so I could be a show choir director...and I was a show choir director for several years! I just LOVE show choir!! When I heard about Glee I couldn't wait to see it...and, of course, I love every minute of it. Sometimes it makes me sad to watch it, because I miss being involved in show choir (especially the scene where Will heard Don't Stop Believin' on the radio...I sobbed!), but most of the time I just smile and cheer. It's also become another bonding time with my beautiful daughter, who is 17. Although she isn't in show choir herself, she loves all things musical theater and dance (she is a dancer). Watching Glee just reinforces how much alike we are!

I'd like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony.

I love musicals...always have. It started with Grease. I used to sing to the records that we had growing up. Well I had seen the commercials, etc. for Glee, but I figured I'm 31, it's for kids...well one night my niece (who is 16) came to stay the night and she brought her dvds of Glee. I watched the first episode and was like OMG!!! I fell in love all over again lol. Now I have all the cds. Don't have the dvds, but i guess I can borrow my nieces. Oh, and my kids (6 & 4) LOVE the music

Music has never been part of my life ,i have never been in a choir or anything related to singing and dancing , as a kid my mom always encouraged me to do martial arts ,i was a huge tomboy ... i never danced in front of people because i was too scared of what people may think of me , this past few years i have finally unleashed the inner Gleek in me , i joined a dance class and it was the best thing i have ever did i'm having so much fun and i don't feel embarrassed with my self anymore and that's exactly what i love about Glee , the fact that those kids can express themselves and feel free to be who they are regardless of what people may think , i still love martial arts but i'm a shinier person now .

Hi everyone, I'm new to the team and wanted to say hello. I have been watching Glee since last spring when they premiered the pilot and I happened to be channel surfing. I'm a big fan and can't wait for next season... even though I've heard some rumors about Artie and Tina breaking up I'm not happy about! Love them!

I found out about Glee while looking up something about Dollhouse. I found an article saying how much Joss Whedon wanted to direct an episode of Glee, and I thought 'What's this?' I'm in the UK and the pilot played as a preview about 2/3 months before the show started properly. After watching the pilot I was hooked! It was the music that did it for me (though I do think everyone in it is wonderfully talented). Even my husband watches it with me! So now I'm a Gleek, to go along with being a Harry Head, Twihard, Whovian, to name but a few!

I solemnly swear I'm up to no good!

My College dorm is full of theatre people. I avoided thier love of Glee for half a season-- i was very succesful too!-- than my boyfriends twin had a Glee Day at thier house. I bit my own lip and admitted my folly as i too became a fan.

I was in show choir and ensembles back in High School and unlike the Glee kids, in my HS it was considered cool to be in Choir. (It could also have had something to do with the automatic A you got if you weren't a total moron).
I can tell you, our choir had nothing on New Directions, or Vocal Adrenalin, THAT'S for sure. I love the show, because it makes me want to sing and dance. I also LOVE Sue Sylvester...

I think I love Glee so much because it's like watching my high school life on tv. I laugh and cry and can relate to so many of the things that these 'kids' go through on the show...plus, while I was in Choir, I would have given ANYTHING to have a Glee club in my school after watching this show...so now I get to live vicariously through them...

Also, they have INCREDIBLE music...and it's such a wonderful diverse variety!

Oh my gosh, where do I start?

Lea Michele - the voice!
Matthew Morrison - my absolute fantasy...
Chris Colfer - makes me laugh, cry (his version of Rose's Turn was fabulous!)
Mark Salling - uh, could he please sing more Sammy Davis Jr? (Fanning myself....)
Jane Lynch - hysterical and wonderful!
Kurt's dad - I wonder if he would marry me???
Whole cast - brilliant!
Writers - brilliant!
Ryan Murphy - brilliant!

Yeah, I'm a Gleek.

(Sometimes I do burst into song - I embarrass my poor son....)

You all know how I feel about Matthew Morrison, but I'm finding myself liking Kurt a whole, whole lot, too. Last night's show that focused on Artie (which was great, by the way) had me wondering "OK, where is Kurt? I need to see Kurt!" The young man playing him just breathes such passion and pathos into him. He's confident in some areas and, oh so vulnerable, in others. Lea Michele gets most of the attention (and deservedly so) but it's Kurt who captures my interest in every scene he's in.

I had the same thought the other day...how fun would it be to just burst into song in your day to day life...it would make some situations so much easier^^ our life as one big musical well maybe not a real musical...but that's a thing I love about Glee..it is not a musical in the way that they sing instead of just talking...the songs are just there to I guess underline the situation.
Glee makes your day just a bit brighter and happier for an hour.
What could be wrong about singing and dancing...life is hard enough!


The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.

You described the part about not fitting in so well. I bet we can all relate to that. Its still true in certain respects even today for me. I love this show because of how it handles those situations. Absolutely love the singing & dancing also. I too wish we could burst out in song & dance during our days. Hey we could lose a couple of ounces that way! emoticon

I'm new here--and to Glee, but I must say I'm in love with this show. I love music, singing in particular, and dancing--though I'm not very good at either. I agree with Chawchidawg--life would go so much better with a soundtrack. If I could just burst into song or a dance routine when challenging situations arise daily!!!

I love the singing, Matthew Morrison, the dancing, the acting, Matthew Morrison, the characters, the story line--Matthew Morrison, the diversity, the choreography--Matthew Morrison!!!

I remember the insecurity of high school, the not fitting in, the cliques. This show lets me relive those days with a happier result, and if painful memories surface--I just burst into song.

Hi, I am new to the group, but an obsessed Gleek!

Trying to list the reasons why I love this show would be nearly impossible (and too long for everyone to read).

I received my college degree in music, and have been a music person my entire life...and I get to watch this great show, with these outstanding artists, and I laugh, I cry, I get mad...it just encompasses everything a show should have, and it never gets boring!

Oh, heavens I could go on all day...but I won't...LOL

I was not in the glee club in school, I don't know why but I was in the church choir. First Cherub choir as a child and then the senior choir which I think was 16 yr. to adult. So I have had a passion for singing many many years. One of those things on my Bucket list is to take singing lessons.

It makes me very, very happy to hear the cast sing together, but I must say I really think Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele carry the whole show. I absolutely love both of them. The singing, the jokes and rivalry, really crack me up, because it's not that far fetched, I still remember high school and working on the musicals, I did the lighting. The production of the songs on Glee make me Hap-hap-happy!!. I put on Happy songs with beautiful melodies when I want to picked up. Like Ingrid Michaelson - Everybody and Maybe. Also Brett Dennen's song and video - Make You Crazy, ALWAYS makes me happy. Check out his video on MTV or You Tube. There are so many other artists that make the Happy List. The list is soooo long. emoticon

Do everything with love.

Welcome Flea! Only a minor obsession? It's a downright mania for a lot of us! And yes, Lea Michele is amazing. The producer called her a "once in a generation voice," and I haven't seen any reason to disagree.

I got into it in January after one of my friends was tweeting incessantly about it. I looked it up on wikipedia, saw that Lea Michele sang "On My Own" (I love Spring Awakening and Les Mis!) and figured I had to check it out. And from there it turned into a minor obsession.

I love Glee for two main reasons: First, I think life would be a lot easier if it had a soundtrack. Singing is a good way to express emotion.

Second, because I was a in show choir my whole jr. high and high school experience. Some of the kids remind me a lot of myself.

Well I started watching it because I heard that Lea Michele was in it and I had seen her onstage in Spring Awakening in New York. But I love the show because I was so that geeky outcast kid who was obsessed with drama and musical theatre class so it's a bit like watching my high school experience lol. And yes, the men are hot.
