GLEE, a one-hour musical comedy series on FOX

Updated on June 20, 2014

Glee Seasons 1 & 2

Scripted TV just hasn't been what it used to be. My Tivo is filled with reality shows. Finally there is something worth watching for those who don't like hospital or crime shows. I absolutely love FOX's new show Glee. The writing is hysterical, the cast is perfect, and the music is so much fun.

      I haven't heard of this at all. I don't watch much TV (okay, well, I do watch Dancing With The Stars these days), but I'll try to remember to at least check in with this one and see what it's like.
