TEN YEARS OF GLEE CLUB MAKES IT SEEM UNLIKELY...:

Glee soars with heartfelt musical comedy (Daniel Carlson, 5/19/09, Hollywood Reporter )

Ryan Murphy's "Glee" is as far from his "Nip/Tuck" as possible, and that's a good thing.

"Nip/Tuck" was a groundbreaking FX drama that's become lost in its tired desire to shock, but Fox's "Glee" is a tightly done hybrid of musical and comedy-drama that's unabashedly heartfelt and possessed of an honest sweetness.

Murphy's sharp wit is still present, and the show certainly doesn't shy away from the darkness in some of the plot lines. But instead of wondering why you're spending time with these characters, you'll wish you could spend more. Previewing Tuesday after "American Idol" before returning in the fall, the series is smart, fun and completely winning.


...but the consistently fabulous reviews suggest this may be fun
