    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.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off 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.

    Now, now, some of us are naturally blessed with, shall we say abundant eyebrows - her character has two gay Dads, so they may not be the best at offering feminine beauty advice!

    You'd probably flinch at mine, too - but in my case, at least some of the eyebrow hairs have always been blonde, not as noticeable as my siblings' even darker ones!

    I love Rachel's character, so I find just about anything she does pretty hilarious.

    It didn't seem weird to me that no one signed up because of the reputation of the club. Word like that travels fast!

    I was also looking forward to Will and Sue working together, but he's too soft I guess!

    I think Rachel needs some competition... I'd have LOVED for Sunshine to stay.

    I didn't really like the opening show for the season. I did like bits and pieces, but Rachel and her conniving ways just turns me off.

    I have seen you in a picture Karen your eyebrows are beautiful. I have always been jealous of ladies with dark eyebrows, mine are so blond you can hardly see them!
    don't breed or buy while shelter dogs die....

    I have been frosted!

    Thanks Kfamr for the signature!

    My hairdresser invariably says "Why don't you let me "do" your brows sometime?" to which I reply "They'll just grow back in, besides, they're part of who I am! People wouldn't recognize me without 'em!"

    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!
