That title? Â Yeah, pretty accurate. Â FOX debuted this show — about a high school glee club made up mostly of rejects — to start building some early buzz for it before it begins its run this fall. Â I hope it works. Â The music throughout is infectious, both the a cappella background music and their use of 80s classics intoxicating (“Don’t Stop Believing” indeed). Â I’m looking forward to seeing more of this cast, especially Lea Michele as the talented, determined Rachel. Â It’s a joy to see a show with such an optimistic bent shine out in the sea of darkness currently on TV.
FYI: Â You can still catch the whole pilot episode for free on Hulu
ETA: It’s also available on iTunes, if you want to the file to go. (Thanks for the update, Adam!).
