All 22 episodes of the first series of the phenomenally popular and Golden Globe-winning teen musical comedy series. When bored Spanish teacher Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) takes over the high school glee club, he envisages restoring it to its past glories. To this end, he assembles a small but talented group of social misfits, whose combined talents soon give rise to an extravaganza of show-stopping music and dance performances. The episodes are: 'Pilot', 'Showmance', 'Acafellas', 'Preggers', 'The Rhodes Not Taken', 'Vitamin D', 'Throwdown', 'Mash-Up', 'Wheels', 'Ballad', 'Hairography', 'Mattress', 'Sectionals', 'Hell-O', 'The Power of Madonna', 'Home', 'Bad Reputation', 'Laryngitis', 'Dream On', 'Theatricality', 'Funk' and 'Journey'.
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

Throughout the large number of subsequent episodes an important theme emerges which is the conflict between student opinions of "butch" persuits like sports, and "sissy" ones like choir singing.
The series has won many many awards and finally ends up becoming the greatest weapon for Gay Liberation in the last few decades.
EVERY SCHOOL LIBRARY SHOULD CONTAIN THE COMPLETE DVD MULTI-SERIES IN ORDER THAT STUDENTS CAN FIND OUT THE MEANING OF SHEER JOY!
I love this show, it has a wide variety of excellent songs, all performed well.
There isn't a single member of New Directions that isn't packed with talent.
As the show progresses you really start to care for the characters, feeling for them and I really wanted them to get past their underdog status.
I just can't get enough of this show.
On bluray I think the episodes look and sound fantastic.
