Last night was the series premiere of Glee, the best idea ever. I cannot yet dub it the best television show ever (though the potential is there) but it is definitely the best idea ever. Somebody was sitting around, trying to come up with a pilot, and they thought: "Hey, I know! Let's combine the three best things that have ever existed in the entire world: television, musicals, and teenage drama!" The result: absolute perfection.
The absurdity of five high-schoolers brilliantly belting out Journey while the 90210-wannabe teacher looks on with a glimmer in his eye was one of the best moments I've had all week.
Oddly, the next new episode won't come until the fall, but I'm one for delayed gratification (that's what she said) and I think that it will be well worth the wait. If you missed the premiere, you can watch it online over and over and over until the fall. Between this and "Community" (thanks to Swank for that tip-off), as well as the return of all of our old favorites (no cancellations!), I think Fall 2010 will be one of the best seasons ever.
