Just watched this. Wow. I hope this doesn't sound like silly hyperbole, but I think this was one of the better Pilot episodes I've ever seen on TV. I feel like a lesser show would have taken a full 20 episode season to get through the story arc that we saw in this one hour episode. Seriously. What a great job they did with this introduction. I may or may not have gotten chills when they busted into that AWESOME performance of "Don't Stop Believin" at the very end.

The cast is great. Jane Lynch has been stealing scenes left and right in comedy movies for years.

And the lead girl Rachel or whatever. Look out. If that's her actual real singing voice...she is the real deal and I am completely in love.

Yup. The entire cast does their own singing, I've heard. The actress who plays Rachel is actually one of the original Broadway cast members from Spring Awakening. I cannot wait for fall. This show is going to be my new obsession.

Yes.

And of course it's her actual singing voice. I don't know why I even questioned that for a second.

Seriously, though. This show is amazing and it totally made my day (I'm pathetic)

But for reals. Let me relay a quick story about the Journey song Don't Stop Believin. As cheesy as it may sound, that song became the unofficial anthem of sorts for the 2005 Chicago White Sox team that won the World Series. Late in the year and throughout the playoff run, the team would play the song in the clubhouse after every game. Word of this quickly spread and it kind of caught fire amongst Chicagoans as the rally cry for a beloved baseball team. A few of our players actually performed a goofy and heartfelt a-cappella version of the song at the World Series parade a couple days after we won it all. I was there and it was beautiful.

So, yeah, I loved the song for a good year or so after we won the World Series. Eventually, I got sick of it. Every time it was played at a bar or something (which is more often than you would probably think) someone would come up to me and be like "Hey man, it's the White Sox song!"

So I actually grew to sorta hate the thing.

Now it's May 28th 2009, and in strolls Lea Michele and the closeted football jock and the wheelchair dude with the guitar and the big black girl all dressed in red and they perform a FIERCE rendition of the song and I fall in love with it all over again. I am currently trying to download this version. I'll stop talking now.

It's the number 3 song on iTunes right now. They do a great job with it, it actually rivals the original almost. Also, the football player is hot, so I hope they don't make his character gay. But that's just my shallow-ness coming through.

No shit? That's awesome. It deserves it. At this moment I like it more than the original but a lot of that probably has to do with it being all shiny and new.

Nah, I don't think he'll turn out to be gay actually...they might go with the angle of him getting together with Rachel but who knows? I just looked it up and I guess it comes back on September 16th. That's the same week as the U2 shows in Chicago.

What am I looking forward to more? NEW GLEE.

Sweet! We should meet up at a karoake bar after the show and do our own kick-ass rendition of the song.

Yes, we totally should.

That reminds me that I really need to get some stuff straightened out for those concerts. Right now I only have crappy way up high seats for both the Saturday and Sunday shows and I desperately need to trade those in or something or sell them for some GA's. I'll probably have to look into that pretty soon. But that's another story for another day.

You don't have GA's? FAIL. Get on that, son.

Isn't it by the guy who created Nip Tuck?

I saw about 15 min of it, I would watch it again

I think they borrowed Don't Stop Believing from Rock Of Ages (a Broadway play)-it was on the Today show this week. Constantine from AI is in it.

Number 4 on the Hot 100 Billboard chart - insane.

Does this kind of thing happen much - they show a pilot and then hold off for three months for the rest of the show? Seems a bit cruel to me. Anyhow - top show

Caught the pilot last week, and pretty much adored it. There were some parts where I was a bit bored, but it was the pilot, so I'll let that slide. As a former choir nerd, I LOVED the singing, and Don't Stop Believing gave me frickin' goosebumps. Loved the other glee club doing Rehab. Seems like this has a lot of potential, and I'll definitely be watching this season.

Looking forward to seeing the next episode tonight!

Taping it now.

And it was Jane Lynch (the principal) we saw on the Paramount lot back in July
