Gleefully funny

I had heard the ruckus about the TV show Glee but didn't make an effort to watch. But one night, looking for some noise in the background while I was on the computer, I stumbled across the show and was hooked. It isn't intellectual comedy but it makes me laugh——the "Single Woman" football team dance routine had me holding my side with laughter. Actress Jane Lynch superbly plays the perfectly awful Sue Sylvester, the show's villain and the cheerleading coach. She is so marvelously evil that you can't help but want to see her in action. Sue convinced a local TV news program to allow to give weekly editorials and here is an example of Sue Sylvester at work. It's worth a laugh or two.
