Glee Is Back!

Well last night brought Glee back to TV after a 2 week break for the World Series. I wouldn't have minded if my beloved Red Sox were in the series, but they weren't so I found the whole thing annoying as did my daughter. Both her and her friends have been counting down the days. The only thing we had to sustain her was the release of the Glee Vol. 1 Soundtrack. We have been listening to it nonstop in the the car. It's totally worth the purchase. Glee Vol. 2 Soundtrack will be released on on December 8. I will totally be getting that.

Last nights episode was great and had a really nice message. The episode was entitled "Wheels" Glee - Glee, Season 1 - Wheels and focuses on Artie, a member of the glee club who is restricted to a wheel chair because of a car accident. The club needs to earn money for a special bus so he can ride with the club to regionals. At first the club seems to not be concerned until the teacher, Will, makes each of the other members of the club use a wheel chair for 3 hours a day. Soon they all learn how difficult things are for Artie and they work hard to earn the money. On one of the side stories the cheer leading coach allows a cute girl with down syndrome to join the cheer leading team. Will believes she is up to no good, but it is soon revealed that she wants the girl to be happy and treated like everyone else. This shocks Will and the audience is surprised to learn that Sue's sister also a sister with Downs Syndrome that she visits regularly. This woman does have a heart. Who knew? This was a real feel good episode.

The songs were again fabulous. My favorites being Defying Gravity Glee Cast - Glee - The Music, Vol. 1 - Defying Gravity sung by both Rachel and Kurt in a diva off. Oh and Proud Mary Glee Cast - Proud Mary (Glee Cast Version) - Single - Proud Mary (Glee Cast Version) sung by the cast but mainly by Artie, Mercedes, and Tina. I'm really looking forward to next weeks episode as is my daughter. She can not get enough. We are such Gleeks.

OMG! That sounds fabulous. We get it a few days late here, so I haven't seen it yet. I can't wait! Confessions: have a semi-crush on Artie, lol.
