Fox's "Glee" will be a huge hit in the Philippines too

Nope, they haven't shown it here in the Philippines, but from the trailer I found on YouTube and the reviews I've read, I think "Glee", the new musical comedy series from Fox will be a big hit in the Philippines too.

Filipinos are very musical people, this is evident in the sheer number of choirs from universities, high schools, churches, companies, towns... anywhere where there's enough people, there's a choir. Haha! And here you have a series about a choir! A Glee Club! Haha. Actually, I'm excited that they're putting choirs back into the mainstream. A couple of years ago they did a series in the US called "Clash of the Choirs", I dunno how that ended up. But here's a series, on primetime TV, about a choir! (Why am I excited? I was a choir member for 6.5 years!)

Here's the trailer of the pilot episode of "Glee"...

What do you think? Is it a hit or a miss?

  1. looks fun. a mix of comedy and uplifting. audiences can be fickle though and a lot of it depends on what time slot they give it.

  2. @Brian - they gave it the slot after American Idol (which is now off season). I dun know what replaced AI tho. I'm not in the USA!

  3. you can watch the pilot episode in not too bad and I like the music too let's wait and see this coming fall :-D

    salamat sa pag daan sa site ko :-D

  4. Uy talaga? Cge nga panoorin ko dun baka bukas. heh heh.

  5. seems entertaining.:) i like musical comedies,in contrast Stephen Sondheim musical, 'Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street', coz i have this weak stomache hehe!

  6. i mean, my stomach aches whenever i watch Ghoulish movies like 'Sweeney'. so maybe this 'Glee'i will surely like.

    thanks anyway for such tidbits and thanks )as well) for those blog visits.:)

  7. @fren - nice to see you here! :D haha. I didn't like Sweeney Todd as much as most people, even though I do enjoy scary movies. I guess it wasn't scary enough, nor musical enough for me to like. huh... :p

    anyway, thanks for the visit!

  8. in sweeney todd kasi, helena bonham carter's face is more than enough for me to be scared hehe.
