Glee, Popular Escapist TV Show
A musical comedy-drama loved by Gleeks Everywhere
How's the world treating you lately? Tired of hearing about the bad economy, illegal
immigration, the oil spill in the gulf? This is a good time to enjoy some escapist
TV! The same thing happened in the 1960s. There was the cold war, the Viet Nam war,
riots in the streets of major cities. But on TV, everyone loved to watch Gilligan's
Island, The Beverly Hillbillies and The Monkees. Now that times are tough again, escapist
shows like iCarly, American Idol and Glee are very popular.
Glee is a show about the misfits who are in a Glee club named "New Directions" at
a fictional High School named William McKinley in Lima, Ohio. The glee club is lead
by a Spanish teacher who defneds them from the plans of the cheerleader coach. It
is classified as a musical comedy-drama satire. It airs on the Fox netowrk which
also broadcasts American Idol and popular shows such as The Simpsons, Family Guy,
Bones and House. Glee first aired after an episode of Americal Idol which was an excellent
lead in. This summer, Glee is on at 8PM on Thursdays but will air at 8PM on
Tuesdays this Fall, right before new shows Raising Hope and Running Wilde.

Glee is all about music and dance; it features five to eight songs in each show.
The songs are a mix of show tunes and pop hits from artists like Billy Joel, Madonna
and Rihanna. It takes up to eight weeks to choose the music, create the dance
moves and teach them to the cast and crew. Each show costs over 3 million dollars
