Hi I'm 27 years old and I'm a Gleek.
Glee is a programme currently running on E4 (you can catch up with this on 4od online). Glee is based on a US High School singing group. The group is made up of various individuals from all walks of life. They are brought together by their love of music and singing.
This is a really feel good programme. The kids in the group all have their own personal struggles (a pregnant teenage cheerleader, teenage wheelchair user, gay boy trying to gain the acceptance of his father) which we learn about and see them trying to get on with their lives.
There is always a huge selection of songs sung during the shows. And these are always connected in some way or another to what is happening in the episode we are watching. So they aren't just sung randomly for no reason. We also get an insight into the teachers lives as well and some of these (Sue Sylvester) are so funny whereas others are really touching.
The singing is really good, I have even bought the second Glee album (of which there are 3!). A few weeks ago there was a Madonna episode where all of the songs sung were covers of Madonna songs. The songs and the quality of singing are the reasons I enjoy this programme so much. However, the way the pupils all lean on each other is also very heart warming.
If you haven't watched Glee yet what are you waiting for!
Summary: Sing along fun!
