Singing Its Praises

Finally got around to watching the first episode of "Glee," Fox's highly touted new high school musical dramedy. It's true that there's really nothing new here -- all of your archetypes and couples-who-are-obviously-meant-to-be-together-but-are-with-people-they're-obviously-not-meant-to-be-with are covered. But you can't help but fall in love with Matthew Morrison's earnest-but-sexy Mr. Schuester, and that alone is enough to make me care enough to want to see what will happen next. And if his glee club keeps delivering performances like this one -- a rousing boy-meets-girl rendition of Journey's classic "Don't Stop Believin'" -- then the progress report I'm sending home is most encouraging.

Love it!!! (especially the scene at the beginning where Matthew Morrison is lying in bed - SHIRTLESS!) What a great body!)

Isn't it great? I just watched the pilot for a second time yesterday and it was even better than the first time I saw it. Such a clever, witty show! And Matthew Morrison...swoon!

Google Matthew Morrison's name to see him in Broadway cares and a few others, he's a delight.

This is such a feel good show. I love the scene when Matthew Morrison is talking Lea Michele on the bleachers, and she says that being good at something makes you relevant (or something like that).

What a great show. Let's hope that ABC stays with it.
