Glee Club

Just caught up on 2 weeks of Glee - loving it.

For me, it's more about the writing than the music (never been a musical kinda gal) although I do find myself feeling - in a slightly Grange Hill way - that they're all rather professional. Love the uber-ironic characters, how everyone has their own meta-narrator.

Can't help wondering if in real American High Schools girls truly walk around in their cheerleader outfits all day (a la Heroes' Claire Bennett). In fact, now I think about it - almost all high-school related stuff is living in the shadow of John Hughes' (RIP) Breakfast Club.

Reminds me: great piece in Vanity Fair about John.
