Getting 'Glee' in 60 Seconds

'Glee'Are you having a hard time explaining the intricacies, satire and fun of FOX's hit series 'Glee' to your friends? Do they look at you quizzically when you try to explain that sometimes they sing as part of the show, but other times it's some imaginary musical interlude that doesn't really happen? The fine folks at Babelgum have just the answer.

They've managed to explain everything about the series in a 60-second video. The only thing under-represented is Sue Sylvester, but then you can't really find anyone to out-"Sue" Jane Lynch. The video manages to poke fun of some of the goofier elements of the series, like how they can have a backing band ready to go at all times for Glee Club, and how many times the plots have revolved around someone quitting.

What's even more impressive is that they've managed to create something that can be equally enjoyed by the Gleeks who can't get enough of their favorite show and those who absolutely despite it to their very core. The networks should hire the folks at Babelgum guys to create videos like this for all their shows.

I'd love to see their take on 'Lost' just before the series finale. How many times would we get a close-up of a human eye? Maybe they should do one explaining the longest story in history: the one Ted's telling his kids on 'How I Met Your Mother.' Those kids would be old and gray, and mom long dead by the time he gets to any kind of point.

Just don't tell Jay. He hates it when people try to tell him about new shows.

They do have Lost in 8 minutes 15 seconds but I think that's about 7:15 too long.

I still don't get the appeal of "Glee"
