Glee DVD Review: Road to Sectionals

by at . Comments

It's a credit to the Glee cast, crew, producers and musical numbers that the show has remained so popular despite its unusual scheduling.

First, it premiered a single episode in May 2009. Fans were then forced to wait until September for a true first season.

Now, it's taking the longest hiatus a series has ever gone on mid-season. It won't return with new episodes until April.

Fortunately, Fox recognizes this problem and has taken yet another unique step: it released a DVD this week of just the first half of the show's first season.

Glee DVD

Titled "Road to Sectionals," the four-disc set includes 13 episodes and a few special features. They are:

  • Welcome to McKinley: Principal Figgins-featured video that introduces new students/viewers to the school. 
  • Audition Clips: Full-length videos for Rachel's "Respect" and "On My Own" renditions.
  • Casting Sessions – Crew members and cast members discuss the origins of the show, as well as the casting process for various characters.
  • Deconstructing Glee with Ryan Murphy: The creator analyzes the themes behind the show.
  • Dance Boot Camp: The Glee choreographer and many actors focus on the musical numbers and provide backstage footage from the dance practices.
  • Meet Jane Lynch: Self-explanatory. Hilarious.
  • Video Diaries: Many of the cast members share video diaries they shot during promotional appearances for the comedy.
