We've heard it said that "everybody" watches Glee, but at some point you have to wonder...Okay, not everybody can watch Glee. Can they? But lately I've come across more Gleeks in my friends and family than I thought possible. So maybe it really does hit on "zeitgeist" levels. Especially now that Fox's hit series has earned not only a second season pickup but a third season pickup, as confirmed by Entertainment Weekly. Not even creator Ryan Murphy can believe it:
“It’s been a whirlwind year – from shooting the pilot to performing at the White House to the concert tour that began last week – and yet we all feel like we’ve just begun this amazing musical journey. We think our Gleeks worldwide are going to love what we’ll have in store for them in seasons two and three.”
I remember that pilot too. And the blog-uments about whether or not the show "would make it". I know, amazing, right?
