When you think about it, Glee shouldn’t work. It’s a comedic musical television series (what?) featuring a bunch of
previously unknown actors and actresses from far-flung places like Broadway. With all the song numbers, dance numbers and witty one-liners, fans get a lot of laughs - but the show also, at times, gives views tears. So what makes this series so special?
Matthew Morrison, who plays inspirational glee club coach Will Schuester, expressed it beautifully in a recent interview. When asked about the series and its phenomenal appeal, Morrison said “music is the language that everyone speaks.”

Laughter and tears filled the Season 1 finale of Glee, the year’s most talked-about new series. The episode, “Journey,” saw the culmination of everything that’s been building all season: the highly-anticipated Regionals competition featuring the final showdown between feature Glee club New Directions and rival Vocal Adrenaline, the solution for Quinn and her baby, the confrontation between Will and Emma and even a surprising final-act twist involving tough-as-nails cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester.
It was absolutely, positively fabulous. Read on only if you’ve already seen it - or, don’t mind a bunch of spoilers!
The much-anticipated mid-season return of Glee premiered after Tuesday’s American Idol, a new day and time for the musically-themed scripted series. A quick recap of the first half of the season (delivered as usual in quick, bullet-fashion that at times is a bit hard to follow) led immediately into the first few scenes - which featured a hilarious collection of quips and jibes between Will Schuester and Sue Sylvester (Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch).
It only got better from there. Slushies were thrown in faces, relationships were re-arranged (a common theme on Glee), beautiful music was made…and the birth of a brand-new love triangle was witnessed. Read on to get all the juicy details…
The producers are spilling lots of secrets on what’s happening in upcoming episodes of Glee - and not all the news is about the music. You already know that Jane Lynch will sing a Madonna song, and one episode will feature a Lady Gaga cover. Now, find out which A-list movie star just might be making an appearance this season…

If you thought last Wednesday’s episode of Glee was major, you haven’t seen anything yet. After next Wednesday, we won’t get any more Glee until April…so FOX is giving us something good for the fall finale.
Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson) wouldn’t spill any secrets about the songs we’ll get to hear in the episode, but he was willing to talk about another very interesting plot point. Can you stand the wait or do you want to find out right now?

Some of the cast members from Glee helped open one of the World Series games recently, delivering an enjoyable version of the national anthem.
The song was brilliantly sung by Amber Riley, who plays Mercedes on the show and was once rejected by American Idol producers (seriously, somebody should get fired over that). On backup you’ll see Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale (with no wheelchair!), Dianna Agron, Mark Salling and Jenna Ushkowitz.
You’ll want to have the sound turned up before you watch this clip, or you’ll miss most of the Glee.
