On the topic of music...IT'S COMING!!
So one of my new found favorite shows, Glee, is coming back from Hiatus to resume their season on Tuesday night, on Fox. For any of you secret shower singers or car rock stars, this show is a guilty little pleasure. Oh to be able to sing like these young people do and be showcased for it, instead of being picked on, which is basically the premise of the show. The show takes place in high school, that remembered bastion of "I want to fit in and be liked" teenaged angst. So these theatre type geeks are in glee club and they're _really_ talented. The only problem is there are too few of them to compete. They are pushed around and abused by their fellow high school students on a daily basis because they are different and don't fit in. The first season was about recruiting other students to join glee (no easy feat). Then throw in a particularly nasty cheerleading coach played phenomenally well by Jane Lych, whose sole purpose in life is to destroy the glee club, and you have some fun drama. She sends some of her cheerleaders to join the group to spy on them and help sabotage them. Soon, football players are joining and there's a struggle of "who are you going to be" a jock or a geek? They do musical performances each show and more often than not, they're amazing. I can't wait until Tuesday. Who else out there is a Gleek?
