    Any Gleeks?

    Any fellow Glee fans out there?

    What did you think of last night's episode?

    It's getting lots of praise online, but I thought it had some flaws, anyone wanna talk about it?

    And yes, I was in chorus in high school, we didn't have a "glee club" but chorus did the musicals as well as everything standard. And I was in band, too.

    Gleek!

    I didn't see it!

    I bought a T-shirt on Cafepress that says "Band Geek" in big letters. I was an extreme band nerd both in high school and college.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I watched it. I became a fan last year after the season was over, so I've spent the summer getting caught up.

    I was disappointed with the premiere. It didn't feel eventful enough - like that I felt like I wanted to keep watching. I hope that they keep Sunshine.. she's AMAZING!

    What did you think, Karen?

    I do think all the singing was well-performed, but think that it is stretching it a bit to think absolutely no new people would show up for Glee, there's a whole new class of freshmen at the school, so shouldn't there at least be a few unafraid geeks, especially given the number of girls lined up to try out for cheerleading?

    Also, with Rachel's big solo, it seemed a bad choice - because it is hard to believe her character did what she did out of love for anyone but herself ... so "What I Did For Love" seems wrong ...

    I can't STAND that show.
    April watches it, and I go sit elsewhere.
    What is with that girl with the real dark eyebrows ??? She needs to shave.

    Karen, I heard on the news that this week's "Glee" was watched by over 13 million people. Once again I missed it and forgot to record it. I just found out that Jane Lynch is from Chicago

    That's why I love my DVR - we just set it to record a show and it never forgets! This week's show seemed a little odd, like it was a Britney Spears show, a little forced, but at least some character development was moved along ...

    Rachel makes an AWFUL Britney! I was so disappointed in her performance. I loved her singing the Paramour song though.. beautiful!

    It was also a bit much having Artie do a Britney solo.. weird.

    It was nice to see Will perform, but the whole thing was really creepy with how he performed with the students!

    I am a Gleek and proud of it.
    I love the guy who plays Finn. He's about 3 years older than me in real life.

    Well you know only the real Brittany Spears can play herself well. Lea Michelle who plays Rachel is a good actress and singer. I think she pulled it off pretty well. I think she can pull off anything. She has amazing talent!!
    The girl who played Sunshine last week was really good, too bad they only gave her a few parts. Maybe she will be on in the future. Did anyone recognize John Stamos who plays Carl? He is a hottie way too old for me but he played "Jesse" in Full House.

    What did you all think of last night's episode? I do think it was the best of the season so far, and I had tears in my eyes several times. It could have been pretty cheesy, but I thought they handled the whole topic extremely well.

    I won't say anything else about specifics in case others have recorded it but haven't watched it yet, but I thought even the song choices were extremely appropriate, and even the scene with Mercedes' church was great, and that's usually not done very well.
