High school. An overachieving girl. A popular varsity player. Cheesy songs played in between. The plot seemed all too familiar: the show must be High School Musical—except that it’s not. It’s actually Glee, a new television series from Fox that, at surface, looks and sounds a lot like that overly popular Disney made-for-television movie.
I didn’t think Glee was very different from HSM after watching its pilot episode. I only remember Ryan Seacrest plugging the show during the last episode of American Idol. I obviously didn’t have the means to watch it—until I got hold of through a video streaming website It had its weird moments and the characters can get one-dimensional… but how can anyone not get entertained with a show that features music performances from practically all genres?
