5.0 out of 5 stars Much more fun and better tunes than season one ~, October 20, 2011
This review is from: Glee: Season 2 (DVD)
Though there are some high and low moments with the drama surrounding the characters, this is generally an amazing season. The characters actually begin acting a little more childish in this season, a lot more like high school students and adolescents in general, which is nice for the flow. But often their interactions get a little clichéd and tiresome. But that is not enough to dock this season a star. There are other dramatic moments that are pretty amazing. Kurt's story gets a lot more interesting for one.

The main reason this season is amazing is the variety and quality of the songs performed. I enjoyed those few episodes in season one where the songs seemed to transform into 'videos'. That is, not singing in the choir room, but actually having a song start in the room, then all of the sudden they're out in the hall and it's a huge choreographed affair. The writers did what we wanted and added more dancing and more of the 'music video' element. Which works with the studio recorded and digitally mastered songs that are performed (no live recorded performances here - at least not when they break into a full song).

Of special note, and quite a treat, are the themed episodes. Yes, you get Rocky Horror Picture Show. Yes. And Britney Spears. Yes. And they include a good number of Broadway tunes as well, though not quite up to the level and frequency from season one. And Gwyneth Paltrow makes a guest appearance that is memorable and won her an Emmy.

This show is not for everyone. If you enjoy a broad range of musical styles, and have an open mind (one of the main characters is openly gay, though if you enjoy Broadway musicals you can't really have a problem with openly gay men) then this is a show worth getting into.
