It’s Back!!! Well, almost…
GLEE, which made it’s Fox premier back in May to reel-in the American Idol audience returns (hopefully for a long healthy run) on Wednesday September 16th.
Starring Matthew Morrison (Broadway’s Hairspray, The Light in the Piazza, and South Pacific) and with the craftsmenship of Broadway veterans from stage design to performance, the show is already a cult favorite, and is sure to be one of the biggest hits of the fall. It’s also sure to make a star of Cory Montieth as the macho football-player-turned-showchoir-leadmale…(Cory also follows in Fox’s long string of shows starring 27 year olds playing 16 year olds…)
The reviews have generally been glowing. The 2nd and 3rd episodes have already been screened at Fox and reviews report they are even BETTER than the premier. The show has also promo-ed the second episode at LA’s OutFest, and are promo-ing the third episode at ComicCon…
I haven’t seen Fox put this amount of hype into a show in a long time — and deservedly so. It’s got a fresh, exciting cast, and true talent both in front of and behind the scenes. I’m rooting for GLEE to have a long, healthy run on Fox. Lets hope the audiences follow. This is the first musical comedy show on primetime that stands a chance since FAME all those long years ago.
