Glee Sings and Dances Its Way to DVD

Glee is one of the most talked about, most watched shows of the fall season. The hour-long musical-dramedy by Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy was so unlike anything on television, and given the history of musical TV series (Cop Rock anyone?), the show was really a gamble. FOX chose to air the pilot episode after the big American Idol finale this May, and then the stars of Glee hit the road for a Tiffany-esque mall tour drumming up more audience excitement for the show. Glee is now a bona fide hit.

The show stars Broadway’s Matthew Morrison as high school Spanish teacher Will Schuester, who volunteers to coach Glee, the school’s floundering show choir. Only a handful of kids willingly want to be a part of the club, so Will has to recruit kids from other cliques including kids from the football team and from the Cheerios, the school’s award winning cheerleading squad coached by Sue Sylvester (the brilliantly funny Jane Lynch).

Fans of the show have been frantically downloading the weekly musical offerings on iTunes, and completists will finally be quelled in November when Glee: The Music, Volume 1 is released. Now fans get to relive the club’s rise to Sectionals, when the first thirteen episodes come to DVD on December 29 (SRP $39.98).
