ReviewSource Los Angeles Times
Review Fox's clever decision to sneak-preview, back in May, the pilot of Glee -- the high school musical whose second episode airs tonight -- created a kind of cliffhanger summer for a show that had not yet properly premiered. The pilot was rebroadcast last week in a "director's cut," a phrase that translates as "Take this seriously."...The series is set in an Ohio town where high school Spanish teacher Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) takes over the glee club after its former director (Stephen Tobolowsky) is fired. Will cherishes memories of his own national-championship days in what is more properly called show choir -- performing jazzed-up pop songs, with choreography -- and grasps at a chance to lift his lowering horizons...There is a lot to like here, most of it to do with the cast's younger members, and the show -- created by Ryan Murphy (Nip/Tuck), Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, all of whom participated in show choir or musical theater in their own school days -- is to be embraced just for being a little different. (It is not all that different, but the particulars of its focus are fresh and its celebration of the misfit, in the age of Gossip Girl, is refreshing.) Even with its problems -- we'll get to those presently -- it's one of the best shows of the fall season...The villain of the piece is cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). Jealous of anything that draws focus away from her fiefdom, she sets out to destroy the glee club. ("You do with your depressing little group of kids what I did with my wealthy, elderly mother," she tells Will. "Euthanize it.") An actress beloved by Christopher Guest and Judd Apatow, Lynch has gotten a lot of notice for her work here, but the writing flattens her toward a single note. She's funny from line to line, but there is little to her besides tin-pot contrariness. (In an upcoming episode, she editorializes on TV in favor of littering.) And she dominates every scene she's in...The show is at its best at its sweetest -- not just when the characters soften toward one another but when they soften toward an idea, a possibility. And, of course, there are the musical numbers (staged by Zach Woodlee, who choreographed the occasionally musical Eli Stone), which by their very nature express possibility, embody a giddy kind of striving. (It's why you love American Idol, American idolaters.) In these moments, all is forgiven.

Jonathan Storm, Philadelphia Inquirer The song and dance spills over everywhere, even onto the football field, in this season's best new TV show, Glee.
Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle It's a quirky, sweet, humorous, nonpartisan funfest.
