    Not a dance competition show, but I'm interested in the new show Glee that premiers/previews tonight after Idol. I was a fan of Fame back in its day and am unsure what to expect with a scripted comedy show that might include dance.

    Anyone else looking forward to this show?

    Not sure if I'm excited about the premise, or if I just feel like I am because I'm loving the "Don't Stop Believing" that they play with the commercials, but I'm going to check it out.

    Did catch the show last night. Only two dances were shown, both glee club show dances. Love the competing school's "Rehab" and the show's final number with our glee club of losers, "Don't Stop Believing", which raised goose-bumps. Not High School Musical, it's more realistic than that.

    This show gets a "must watch" slot on my schedule from now on. Unfortunately, that means waiting for the start of the fall season for the next episode. :(

    I really liked it. Don't know if it will keep me watching, but the show was really cute and smart and funny. Just made me happy. Can't wait to see the next episode in the fall!

    rofl, turns out this show really is based on the show choir from my old high school. Thankfully, I wasn't part of it, though many friends were. ;)

    Love it! Great episode tonight. I have LOVED "I Dreamed a Dream" since I saw Les Miz in the late 80's.
    Also love "On My Own," which I got to sing once.

    Great episode, indeed. This show is the most entertaining hour of television, ever. Love the songs, love the dance, love the comedy, love it all. Just not sure how I'm going to handle a long, hot, bleak, dry, dusty, summer without some Glee to keep me going... ;)

    Definitely an emotional episode and *loved* Sue's motivations at the end. Makes perfect sense. :D

    Did anybody catch the episode about God?? I was bawling. Seeing as how I am having rough time in my life right now too, I keep listening to two songs from the episode that really touch me (and I like better than the originals):

    Although, I think they should have played less of Rachel's "poppa can you hear me?" song and played the whole song for "What if God was one of us?"... Kurt's part is great and it would have made sense for him to have that solo in the episode.

    You weren't alone. Kurt's version of the Beatles "I Want to Hold Your Hand" had me crying. I've gone through the experience of having my father in the hospital and not waking up. It's not something I'd wish on anyone.

    Agreed. I'm also a little sick of Rachel at this point because I want the other cast members to have the spotlight.

    I probably shouldn't have watched it. It hit a little too close to home for me right now and I pretty much cried for the entire hour.

    I loved Kurt's version. Took a upbeat "teenage love" song from the Sixties and gave it a whole new meaning, full of sadness and pain. And, unfortunately, like Beto, having lost my father to cancer, resonates personally.
