Wishes Of A Television-aholic: 'Glee'

August 12th, 2011 9:58am EDT
glee cast
Believe it or not, this television-aholic actually scoffed at the early promos of what would come to be FOX’s mega-hit, “Glee.” The show looked silly and childish, and I thought it would be cancelled before the fourth episode. My initial assumptions were glaringly and wonderfully wrong. “Glee” is the television equivalent of cotton candy—brightly colored, lighthearted and achingly sweet. It makes me feel inspired and happy while most of my favorite shows make me want to curl up in the fetal position and ugly-cry.

Unfortunately, the last season was a little more sour than sweet thanks t...

Sue is back after a Gaga-mandated hiatus, and the first item on her agenda is to revitalize the school newspaper and get the gossip mill powered up and running. It’s actually one of her more sensible strategic efforts to take down the Glee Club. Using gossip columnists and tabloid coverage to take down a pop act?!?

Her son is marrying the mean girl who tormented her daughter, but it turns out said fiance’s aunt is HER high school nemesis. Since it’s a comedy, nobody deals with it maturely.

On Broadway’s biggest night, there was a lot of love for the television phenomenon that made musical theatre cool and turned several stars of the stage into household names.
