Glee

I'm a few weeks late to this party, but "Glee" is pretty damned good TV. It's a nice blend of musical stuff and public high school comedy stuff. The writing is good and the delivery (particularly by Jane Lynch) is brilliant. It ain't "The Wire," but not every show has to be that intense.

They're only five episodes into the season, so you can catch up on Hulu.

if you want good writing and high drama, skip glee and head straight to the new Beverly Hills 90210. we're into the second season now and brandon (who is black in this redux) is a bad bad boy.

The new BH9 hasn't really impressed me, but the addition of Brandon merits a second look.

Eric Rubin said...

no, brandon isnt back. sorry to get you all excited. basically, the bro-sis combo in the show (aka brandon and brenda) is adopted and he's black and he is a sex fiend.

Seth said...

Oh. Huh? Brenda Walsh now has an adopted black sex fiend brother? Or there's another brother-sister pair? Is his name Brandon? I'm totally confused.

I agree with you about Glee. It's light on schmaltz, quite funny at times, and the character that Jane Lynch and the writers have created is an original. I can't wait to see more of her news commentaries.
