    I did a search to see if there was a Glee thread out there but didn't find one. So here goes...
    Just wondering if there are any other Glee fans out there! I saw the pilot after Am. Idol in May and LOVED it. I've been looking forward to the series ever since! I really love musicals (well most, anyway) so having a show that incorporates it & empasizes the need for music in schools is right up my alley!!! They've been playing the pilot almost every night since last week. It starts w/the second episode tomorrow on Fox at 8pm Central.

      Hey Candice! I had heard absolutely nothing about this until Friday night. I was watching tv with the FIL's, and it came on. Apparently, I have been living under a rock, because my FMIL said the same thing-- that it has been super hyped. I was not going to watch it, but we were holed up in a hotel room, and nothing else was on. To my surprise, I LOVED it!!! It's already set to my DVR for all future episodes! It is so witty, clever, and just fun.

      I'm wondering if I missed the pilot and saw the second episode? I saw the one where they sang 'Don't stop Believin' at the end....

          I love it too but I read something online today that some critics said the pilot made it a hit but that the episodes to come aren't nearly as entertaining....hopefully they are wrong...fingers crossed!!!

            I'm super excited! The pilot was really good. I hope the show can keep up. Guess we'll have to wait and see!

              I watched the pilot when it aired back in May. I really liked it, but I'm hoping the show is a little different. The characters were a little unrelatable & two-dimensional. I hope they get a little more realistic.

              So maybe the following episodes being different from the pilot won't be a bad thing. It was really fun, but maybe too over the top. If it slowed down a little & got in depth into the people, I think I'd like it more. I'm excited for episode #2 to see how it goes.

                I LOVED this show! FI has been calling me a Gleek since it first aired. We went to high school together and I was the drama/choir geek then, and I'm still kind of dorky : ) Can't wait till the next show!

                  I agree with Morgan, a bit more of a character study would be nice. I think it really has potential. Shows are so tricky to catch on though... hopefully being after 'so you think you can dance' will help!

                      Oh I know! Its crazy the amount of shows that come and go w/in a few months these days. I think you and Morgan are right, so hopefully now that the series is finally starting we'll get a better look at who everyone really is. I adore Jane Lynch, the cheerleading coach. She is so freaking funny & dry!
