The hit American TV show GLEE just started airing in Italy.
After hearing all the hype and my even my jaded film industry friends rave about the show, I finally got to see it.
Ryan Murphy who created the shows POPULAR and NIP/TICK created this show based on his own high school experience.
Are the students cliches? Yes I think that's the point. Of course the football jock is dating the head cheerleader. But then he's blackmailed into joining the GLEE club. ha
It's great the show is introducing younger viewers to songs from different genres and eras. The actors are crazy talented and kudos to casting for picking people who can actually sing.
Jane Lynch plays the very mean cheerleader coach She's hilarious.
This video is from the ending of the pilot episode. It warms my geeky music loving heart. I love the energy and joy.
Have a great weekend.
