Anyone who has thought about making a musical TV series must be a genius. Imagine watching your favorite teen drama and getting a dose of concert-level performances in every episode, with renditions of classic Broadway songs to the latest pop and R n B hits from Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and even jazzy selections from my favorites, Amy Winehouse and Duffy.
The lead actress Lea Michele plays feisty-geeky and supremely talented Rachel Berry, someone you’d love to love and hate at the same time. Well, “hate” is too harsh a word, but her taste in fashion is just pathetic and once she begins to open her mouth, there’s simply no snapping it shut. But she’s adorable in many ways, and that voice is just pure honey. The TV series has a host of other adorable characters too, from a geeky paraplegic to a preggers cheerleader (who is the president of the Celibacy Club, mind you), to a big-haired blogger who loves to pester Rachel in exchange for her precious undies.
