Fandom: Glee

Co-created by Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, and Brad Falchuk, Glee is an hour long musical comedy-drama that airs on Fox. It focuses on a high school glee club called "New Directions" ran by Will Schuester (played by Matthew Morrison), located in the small midwestern town of Lima, Ohio. It follows the club's struggles of trying to climb up from the bottom of the social ladder while dodging taunts and slushies from the popular kids of school. Meanwhile, cheerleader coach Sue Sylvester (played by Jane Lynch) is determined to destroy the Glee Club and reestablish social order.

The show has met much success, winning several awards including Golden Globes (Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy), Peabody Award, People's Choice Award (Favorite New TV Comedy in 2010), and four Emmys including Ryan Murphy's Outstanding Direction of a Comedy Series. It has a vast selection of merchandise spanning from a Wii Karaoke Revolution game to a clothing line carried by Macy's. The music is also highly successful and each song is available for download via iTunes.

Season 2 premieres Tuesday, September 21st at 8/7c on Fox.
