There are some awkward turns along the way--tyrannical cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (the peerless Jane Lynch) becomes principal, then marries herself, then acts out a flat retelling of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. It's understandable that the show's writers want to explore this fantastic character, but Sue is at her best when used sparingly. Lynch carries Sue through these implausible turns with sheer force of will, but let's hope Sue's future story lines stay a little more rooted in sense. All in all, Season 2, Volume 1 is uneven, but the high points are so good that when things go askew it can be forgiven as restless experimentation. Besides, though many of the interpretations are unadventurous, every episode features a handful of stunning vocal performances--and when they do take chances, such as with Kurt's yearning take on "I Want to Hold Your Hand" or Mercedes's rousing gospel rendition of "Bridge over Troubled Water," the results are delirious. --Bret Fetzer

The first volume consists of ten episodes, from "Audition", the season premiere, to "A Very Glee Christmas", obviously the Christmas episode. The ninth and penultimate episode is Sectionals, the first of the three competitions that New Directions will face in the course of the year (after that, Regionals, and then, Nationals). Two of these ten are "theme" episodes focussed on, respectively, Britney Spears music and "The Rocky Horror Show" (and its film adaptation, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"), while another is more or less built around a guest appearance from Gwyneth Paltrow. There has been some debate in the fandom about whether the season is being dragged down by an overabundance of themed stuff, but I would, on the whole, say no - this ratio is far from unworkable (and supposedly the rest of the season will have less of this).Read more ›
The Box Set:
The front cover shows characters Brittany, Finn, Rachel,Satanna, and Kurt throwing slushies in front of a green background. On the left spine of the box you have the title and small pictures of Rachel and Finn. On the right side (only on the cardboard slip cover) you have Brittany and Satanna. On the back you have a sypnosis of the season (so far) and a list of various features. On the inside you have a layout of pics of the cast (mostly from "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" episode)a list of what's on each disc including features and such. The 3 discs are spread out into a "story book format" which all TV on DVD releases are nowadays.
All 3 discs are colored differently. Where is says "Glee" on each disc there is a "K" spray painted next to the word. Also, next to the "K" is the word "Out!" Making the discs say "Gleek Out!"
Disc 1 -
On disc 1 you get episodes 1-4 of Season Two with 1 bonus feature, which is "Glee Kareoke". Glee Kareoke is where you can choose which song you want to listen to, and it goes straight to it on the DVD.
Disc 2 -
On disc 2 you get episodes 5-8 with a couple bonus features. Glee Music Jukebox and a never-before-aired song from "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" (even though it ony lasts about 1 minute long).
Disc 3 -
On disc 3 you get episodes 9 & 10 with the majority of the features. Some features include "Getting Waxed with Jane Lynch" and "Glee at Comic-Con 2010."
In season two, the episodes have still been very good.Read more ›
And seriously people? You're going to rate a TV series on how many discs are in it? Aren't reviews supposed to be more about the quality of the program? Additionally...I just can't believe so many people are surprised that the whole season isn't included...considering that it hasn't stopped filming, that they did the same thing last time, that there's an episode preview, and that the title says "GLEE: SEASON TWO, VOLUME ONE"...that they mention there is a volume one, and any moderately intelligent person should only assume there is, in the very least, another half.
Finally, fool you twice, shame on you...Indeed.
Glee rocks, and all you whiners can go take a long walk off a short pier. Be grateful that you don't have to wait until June (or whenever they release the whole season).

Glee seasons 1, 2 and 3 are the only seasons worth watching. Glee season 4 is OK, but not as good as the first three seasons. The rest of the seasons are duds.Published 6 months ago by Fidel Luichi Mercado
