FOX full of Glee, offers a full season pick-up

GleeIt may be the "duh!" pick-up of the season as FOX ordered a full season of Glee today. Co-creator Ryan Murphy says in the press release announcing the move: "It's fantastic to be the first show picked up and that this underdog series, like its characters, will get the chance to keep singing." Okay, I'm on board with being happy that Glee got that full season pick-up. It's got such a unique vibe that I fully expected it to crash and burn on a television landscape of NCSISL&O spin-offs. But "underdog?"

Isn't Glee the most hyped premiere, other than Jay Leno, we've seen in years? The critics have been talking about it like it was the second coming of [insert your choice for greatest show of all time] all summer, many based solely on the pilot. You have to have been living under a rock for the past four months to have not known about Glee.

That said, I hope Glee keeps growing by leaps and bounds. We need something positive and uplifting on the air, and these kids are going to make me feel good through May, until we get that second season renewal.

i LOVED the pilot (i actually watched it again immediately after it was over which i never do) and while i think the subsequent episodes have been good they are nothing close to the pilot. i hope they can finally flesh out the characters and start moving forward (the teacher has essentially quit twice in three episodes). glad to see it got a full pickup so atleast it'll get a fair shake.

Actually, I will agree with calling it an underdog. Not because it's hyped or not, but because it's something different. What current hit show can it be compared to? It's not a spin-off or clone of a successful show with a built-in audience ready to watch. And no matter how much hype is behind it, if people don't want to watch, they won't.
