Jump with Glee

I'm sure you've all heard about the summer's hit pilot Glee. It just re-aired last night with an added bonus: Matthew Morrison playing guitar and singing "Leaving on a Jetplane." Glee is about the ongoing faction within the high school caste system. The misfits vs the popular kids, with some stuck in the middle as the rope in a game of tug-of-war. It follows the Glee club in its efforts to save itself from being dropped from the school extracurriculars. It's also trying to save itself from the football team and cheerleaders, including the coaches, one of which is played by Jane Lynch. Plus it's got Jayma Mays, the adorable red-head that you might know as Charlie from Heroes. She's also a germophobe on the show, which makes for hilarious scenes. And it's so natural; she does her clean-freak stuff as the cast delivers their lines. The cast is brilliant, and their version of "Don't Stop Believin'" has everyone believing in this show, including many musical artists. Nearly every episode has a guest star, and artists readily agree to give the show permission to use their songs! It's first episode (not including the pilot) debuts next Wednesday at 9/8 central on FOX! We know how FOX loves to cancel stuff, but this show has gotten so much hype and support, I think it'll stick. Lucky for us!

Watch a promo here!
