I heard NPR interviewing the creator of this show while on holiday in San Diego last week. Needless to say, I was intrigued. So I watched the pilot.
This is not your average high school musical.
And then, in some ways it is. The single most incredibly high school thing that I have kept is the desire to do something, be a part of something, greater and grander than little old me can ever be. Glee taps into that, and I like it. Sometimes the show looks into the world of a high school as well, which is a bonus.
I'm looking forward to the fall.
