Good news ! I'm looking forward to picking this up, but that seems like a lot to fit onto 4 discs, no ? 5-6 episodes (3:45 - 4:30 hrs) per disc not including bonus features. Hope the PQ/SQ doesn't suffer.

I think this show has just kept getting better every episode - the last 9 are much better than the first 13 - musically and dance numbers! The wife faking her pregnancy almost ended me watching this program - it was the dumbest subplot I have ever seen!!! Thanks Glee for dumping the stupid story for much more rich character development of Sue and Glee Club members!!! Day One purchase for me!

I agree, denger76 -- the wife subplot was atrocious. The show is fantastic now, so I will pick this up without hesitation.

Well its about time that season one of GLEE is coming to BLU-RAY.
This is one of the best new shows to hit the air in a long time. My only issue is the behind the scenes stuff I could care less about the Karoke sing along and it would have been great for the producers to include the process that goes in to making each episode example camera set up
rehearsals and also have some background on the casting process on this show
With all that said day one purchase for me.

RebelPrince, I wouldn't worry about PQ/SQ on the release due to compression. If they use the full span of 4 50GB disc the bit rate should still hover around 20mbps or higher. It should be more than enough space. Even Godfather 2 @28mbps which is 200 minutes long still had 4GB of space left unused! If it had been a 3-disc set, we would have cause to be more worried. Each disc of Glee should contain between 225-275 minutes of content. Should be a great example of how much capacity Blu-Ray has to offer.

Character development? Only Rachel, Mercedes and Kurt get developed. That's it. The show went from "story with songs" to "songs that are the story". Pure and simple.

However, Joss Whedon brought us the best episode of the series, Dream-On, so I like the back 9 for that reason.

I knew it! They were waiting for the full season unlike what they did with the DVD, and this will be a day 1 purchase for me. In my opinion this is the best series on television. Covering all genres of music, even Broadway, with great guest stars.

I was a little disappointed with the episode that had Olivia Newton John, I was hoping it would have been more like the Madonna episode and covered her catalog instead of just "Physical." Certainly she had enough hits to pick from and many could have been sung by the men.

Anyway, listening to the sound on this show over Dish Network in compressed Dolby Digital, it sounds leaps and bounds better than many other tv series, so I can only imagine what the DTS Master Audio will do for it. Bring it on Fox!

I agree with denger76 and bookcase - these past 9 have been much better. But I also agree with gamma626 on the Joss Whedon episode (but Joss owns me anyway). Also, Kristin Chenoweth's performance of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was another standout moment - almost brought me to tears.

I agree with "gamma626" and "sodrock".(Except about the blond cheerlearder, I think her dryness and delivery is hilarious.)....The first original episode are far superior. I was telling a few friends how great the show was and they decided to watch when it came back on and they were split. (Half loved it and and Half loved it.) I still luv the show but the episodes that have aired since they returned have NOT been as good. "The Madonna episode" had great music but the story was so obviously pieced together to find reasons to fit the songs in, (as oppose to finding songs that fit into the story.) that the episode itself suffered. The winter finale/sectionals episode was outstanding and one of my favorite episodes on any TV show in recent memory. I hope the season finale is just as good!

The first season was fantastic. The second season has been pretty crappy. Not enough Quinn (I think she's had 5 lines all season) and strangely, not enough Coach Sue. The music has also largely sucked.

This last episode with Neil Patrick Harris was PHENOMINAL though! Perhaps the best episode ever!

Fettastic is like the 10th person I have seen that calls this the second season of Glee. I guess the 13 week hiatus mid season confused a lot of people.

The first 13 episodes were done without many concerns about the ratings. There was one cringe-worthy part, the fake pregnancy and the early episodes were quite uneven but many things were satisfying and fresh.
The second part, "the back nine" (a network generally only orders 13 episodes from a new show then pick the nine other to complete the season) were done with everybody knowing the show was a big hit. That's why you get Madonna and other artists (even Bruce Springsteen...) trying to get a song on the show as it's a way to remain in the spotlight. The consistency suffers. It's as if they were trying to stuff too many things during an episode. I think Sue gets more airtime but she gets one-liners or songs that are no longer relevant to the story.

If you haven't seen this show and you love music, buy it! What makes it great is the characters and depth to the story. Don't love the cover art...

while i've never watched Glee, i'm happy for it's blu release, what bothers me about this is that the studio that released Fringe didn't give it a lossless audio release and it's a sci-fi action series and Glee gets one right out of the box. that kinda hurts, again, not knocking Glee, just saying...

Solarrdadd, I think that has more to do with Fox releasing this set, not the show specifically. Most of the sci-fi action series on DVD I can think of are from Warner, and they have an iffy record with audio. IIRC, Firefly and Battlestar, from Fox and Universal, respectively, are both lossless.

I've seen many of the episodes of Glee, especially the more recent ones, and very much enjoy it. I don't take it too seriously (it's frequent wit even in light of serious issues reminds me of Desperate Housewives to some extent).

As is the case with all current and recent TV series, I'll wait (and wait) until the series runs its course and there's a big box of the complete series in hi-def to buy at a reasonable price before I consider acquiring it. I'm a very patient guy. Until then, I'll just enjoy the new episodes as they air on TV.

Why? Where are all the Nip Tuck seasons on blu-ray, where is the HBO series Carnivale on blu-ray? Where is The Sopranos on blu-ray? But no we get this crap....

BD4ME

Nip/Tuck, The Sopranos and Carnivale are all properties of Time Warner, thus released by Warner Home Video. Glee is released by Fox. So, even if Glee didn't come out on blu-ray, that doesn't automatically give you the shows of other studios. That's an A-class stupid reasoning. Congrats.

It appears that the UK might be getting short changed again, there's only a pre-order on this for the DVD! If there is going to be no UK release, then this had better be region free.
