Glad about Glee

2009-10-02 14:35

Glee starts on M-Net on Sunday, 4 October at 6pm.

Glee follows one passionate teacher, Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) who rounds up the school geeks and nerds to form Glee Club, a place for kids who don't really belong anywhere else. Despite ridicule from the rest of the school and their friends (those who have any), this bunch of misfits sing and dance their hearts out, and they finally get to enjoy being really, really good at something. When the football quarterback, Finn, embraces his voice and joins them, they've got a shot at competing for a championship and respect.

Glee is created by Ryan Murphy, who is also responsible for the smash hit 'Nip/Tuck'. They're quite on opposite ends of the spectrum, but the same uneasy quirkiness is evident.
Here are all the characters you'll get to know and love on this heartwarming and hilarious show.

Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith)
He's the school's star quarterback with a heart of gold. Growing up with a single mom and not much money, he vowed to be successful and never let his mom suffer, even if that means abandoning his love for singing. Through some unconventional methods, he's forced to join Glee Club. In the process, he rediscovers joy.

Rachel Berry (Lea Michele)
Rachel is, obviously, a very beautiful young woman, and boy, can she sing. So why is she such a loner, and why do all the cool kids seem to hate her? It could be because she already thinks she’s a superstar, or because she has two gay dads. And that pretty face is hiding a pretty psycho Type-A personality. Over-confident teenagers can be scary. But chances are, viewers will like her regardless.

Next up: Will and Terry Schuester
