I love GLEE. Why does this show have such a hold over me? I’m not in the show’s target A18-34 demographic, I’ve been out of high school for more years than I care to remember, and I’m not all that musically inclined. None of that matters though. GLEE is an awesome television show, and it has me hooked. This quirky, fun show highlights high school misfits, fitting in by way of the Glee Club. Finn, Rachel, Kurt, Mercedes, Tina, Artie, Puck, Quinn, Santana, Brittney, even Mr. Schue – some jocks, some cheerleaders, some outsiders – every member of the Glee Club and even McKinley High as a whole – are high school misfits in some way. The kids of GLEE come together, and face adversities, using music to teach and heal.
The 4/20 episode, The Power of Madonna, was awesome. If you missed it, you can check out the entire episode on Hulu.
Fox.com also has the episode posted, but my computer runs the Hulu video better for some reason, which is why I chose to embed that video here. If you’d rather not watch it on the Internet, Fox TV is rebroadcasting the episode this Friday, 4/23 at 9pm/8pm central. A lot of GLEEKS who recorded the episode did not get to see the ending, since American Idol, which preceded GLEE, ran long, making GLEE start late. This in turn caused DVR’s to not record the last few minutes of the show.
In my opinion, the last few minutes of Tuesday’s episode were epic, with a superb performance by New Directions (the Glee Club) of Madonna’s “Like A Prayer”.
GLEE is on Fox on Tuesdays, at 9/8 central, following American Idol.
I’m a GLEEK, and proud of it.
