As it was last year, Glee is the hit of the television season. The little show that could has surpassed what everyone thought it could do and is now nothing less than a media juggernaut. There’s truly something for everyone—take your pick from a constant stream of iTunes downloads, CDs, books, merchandise of every description, special issues of entertainment magazines, and of course DVDs.
The Season 1 DVD set, which was released in the fall, will make th eperfect holiday gift for someone who’s of the mind to see how it all started. The 7-disc set includes all 22 episodes, of course, plus sing-along karaoke, a jukebox, audition footage, and other behind-the-scenes goodies. All in all, pretty spectacular.
The music, which is available for download the day the shows are broadcast, has proven to be unstoppable. The single “Teenage Dream,” sung by new cast member Darren Criss, quickly became the series top seller—and it’s included on the “Volume 4," which is probably sitting on shelves next to the “Glee Christmas Album.” Both are wonderful collections for any “Gleek.”
If you’re like me, you can’t wait to see the surprises in-store for the second half of season 2.
