    Irony Lives! . . .and has a soul

    As someone who gets hives when a Journey song comes on the radio, I was taken by surprise at how good Glee tv show is. An exceptionally attractive and talented cast focuses a spotlight--both figuratively and literally--on the ultimate dweebs of high school: Glee dvd boxset club.

    It is no surprise that Glee dvd arises from the same writer for "Popular" . . . that short-lived and underrated second-tier network series with a similar setting. What is surprising is how well they integrate the music with the story line. What keeps it from being saccharine is the self-awareness and not-even-close-to-subtle wink to the camera that "yes, we are manipulating your feelings from high school." It is remarkably effective. At the same time it is a parody, it still connects us to that time when we all felt like the outcasts in High School. And make us feel like we could have had a voice if we only had a Glee dvd set boxset club like this one.
