From Amazon.co.uk

Few shows bottle pure delight like Glee, a TV series about the ups and downs of a high school glee club, or show choir. The show lures you in with its musical numbers, a mix of classic rock and Broadway show tunes performed by a cast of marvelous singers and dancers--but what keeps you watching are the wonderful characters, ranging from Rachel (Lea Michele), whose self-obsession is as uninhibited as it is annoying; to Emma (Jayma Mays), a germ-phobic guidance counsellor; to Kurt (Chris Colfer), a cherubic young gay man who discovers he's got a fantastic football kick. The centre of the show is Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison), the earnest Spanish teacher of McKinley High School, who's determined to guide the glee club to victory at a national competition. He sees this collection of overemotional misfits as heroic, but they're looked down on as losers by the rest of the school--especially Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Best In Show), the ruthless cheerleading coach who will stop at nothing to destroy the glee club before they can take even a fraction of her extravagant budget. Glee fuses adolescent soap opera, the comic pettiness of academic politics, and exuberant song and dance. (While it would be better if the songs weren't so glossily produced, it's impossible to deny the pep and talent of these young performers.) Somehow, the characters manage to be cartoonish yet multi-dimensional; even the nicest characters are capable of being jerks and the most manipulative have moments of sympathy or grace. Throw in vividly coloured costume designs and blisteringly funny rants from Sue, and it's easy to see why Glee became an unexpected hit. --Bret Fetzer

Ok im a bit of a tv snob who usualy looks down on soap operas, high school musical and the like. But I was flicking through the channels and decided to watch some of this (ok it was series 2 episode 1). I expected it to be a load of tosh, but i really enjoyed it. So I decided to get the first series on DVD. I am not dissapointed, ok it is a bit cheesy, and the characters are a bit simple and lack any realy depth. But i have to stop myself from watching it. I am a 19 year old male who usualy watches horror and war films. But Glee somehow has a certain charm to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A standing ovation! 11 Jun 2010
By Orla
Format:DVD
Feel Good, get up and dance, put a smile on your face brilliance!
22 episodes of amazing songs, choreography and epic drama's. Glee takes a year in the lives in the slightly disfunctional glee clubbers and their teacher mr schu. These 12 girls and guys take all the good and all the bad and give really good tv, whilst also throwing out some amazing tunes. It is one of those shows that you can watch over and over again, and I dare say the whole thing in one sitting. So get your dancing shoes and your mic, because glee is awesome. You probably know this but incase you don't and have not seen glee yet, be prepared to become a gleek!

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!! except for the packaging.... 16 Sep 2010
Format:DVD
I'm an absolute fan of this series and I've just received it today!!! I think it's such a great show but I hope the packaging would be better. They just put volume 1 and 2 (that are sold separately, too) into a box. And that's it! I expected more... However, I'm glad I bought it, there are so many extras!!!! (some of them already uploaded in youtube) I can't wait to see Season 1 all over again, while I wait to Season 2 to begin!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Glee BLURAY Review 21 Sep 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Right, as all the reviews here are from the DVD release (part season reviews at that) here is a review from bigpicturebigsound.com including contained extras on the bluray, which Amazon have failed to list as of yet.

The Show

Imagine the cast of Election ready to burst into song at a moment's notice. The creators of Glee did just that, apparently. There's the pretty, special, but tightly-wound student with big ambitions (Lea Michele), the lovably dopey jock (Cory Monteith, who from some angles is a dead ringer for Election's Chris Klein), and of course their hip, young teacher (Matthew Morrison), trying to start a family when not juggling his extra-curricular activities, which now include the glee club, rechristened New Directions. They are an underdog menagerie of singer/dancers who will need a lot of work before they dare take the stage, but they are also innocent enough to have hopes and dreams, and that's one of the keys to this show's tremendous power to charm.

Following one of the best pilots I have ever seen (here in a slightly longer Director's Cut), The Complete First Season drifts occasionally into eye-rolling territory, losing much of its subtlety as the plot and the quest for comedy forces the characters to say and do things that real people simply never would. One anti-favorite: The principal believes one of the kids is a vampire.

The show is also guilty of a problem I've had with TV since I was a kid: Where do they get all of these studio-perfect costumes, week in and week out?

5.0 out of 5 stars INFECTIOUS EXUBERANCE 21 Jan 2011
By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Pity the "freaks" at Ohio's William McKinley High! Soup is hurled in their faces, they themselves thrown into dumpsters. They need a champion. Enter teacher Will Schuester. He wants to re-establish the school's Glee club, using song and dance to help build up their self-esteem. Principal Figgins agrees to a trial run, to continue only if successful in competitions....

22 episodes chart progress as the "misfits" gradually gain confidence. Inevitable is teenage angst some may consider cheesy. Cynics may also scoff at full scale production numbers seemingly whipped up in minutes. Most, though, are likely to be bowled over by a likeable, talented cast and the sheer energy of it all - such enthusiasm impossible to resist.

Matthew Morrison appeals as kindly, dedicated Will. Jane Lynch is hilariously horrible as his archenemy, the cheerleaders' coach Sue - McKinley's very own Wicked Witch of the West. Terror is her weapon as she sets out to destroy Glee. Politically incorrect, to put it mildly, she specializes in blistering putdowns. (On television she urges all local fatties and uglies to stay indoors so her eyes are not offended.) Here is a true monster - but with a secret softer side. Prepare for surprises - not least when she bursts into song and dance.

Throughout, there is so much to like - not to mention many, many laughs. (Note how the football team scores its first win in ages.) The fun includes famous guest stars like Olivia Newton John mercilessly sending themselves up. Some sequences are also extremely moving - as with that deaf school's performance of "Imagine". Highlights include homages to Madonna, Lady Gaga and Queen - all of the routines ambitious and inventive. Generous bonuses prove lively and interesting.
