Continue the story of the American high- school geeks who've formed a glee club –a choir that warble pop hits and seem to spontaneously know all the right dance moves – as they chase their dreams, discover who they really are, and do quite a lot of snogging, too.

Despite a cast of pick'n'mix token types who all get their heartfelt stories, there's also, thankfully, a fair few acid drops thrown in, with knowing asides and a hilariously acerbic cheerleading coach (Jane Lynch). While the singalongs can be saccharine, the show is smarter than it sounds and the tongue is usually planted enjoyably enough in cheek.
