My dad is a big fan of glee. I was only aware of it peripherally, so when he pressed the first season into my hands and insisted I watch it, a synopsis followed. I had to admit, it sounded like something I would enjoy.
I remember when Chicago came to the big screen - I was working in Wichita at the time and talked all my coworkers into going to the premiere with me, which they did - albeit reluctantly. Looking back, I'm surprised they went at all. From the first song to the last, I spent the entire time dancing in my chair and singing along - after all, I knew all the songs. They spent the majority of the film watching...me. And rather unkindly at that.
I sat on glee for nearly a month before watching the pilot. And was immediately enamored. Oh, its nothing I haven't seen before - in fact, its a lot like the sum of all television I've ever watched. In that light it can be a little confusing recalling specifics, but the music...the music is great.
And it helps that I know every song they play.
And sing along.
Dad was right.
