One advantage of having a blog is that you get cool stuff to talk about on your blog. One of those things is the Glee DVD that was recently released. If you’ve seen all the Glee episodes, then you want to get the Glee, Vol. One: Road to Sectionals since it has a TON of extras on the DVD. It’s basically a DVD full of extra information and background story about Glee.
Here’s a short description of the various extras (thanks to TV Overmind):
Welcome to McKinley – a video featuring Principal Figgins (who is grossly under-utilized in the show and is hilarious) meant to introduce incoming students to the school. It’s cheesy – and Figgins is totally in on the joke – and pretty funny.
Glee Music Video – features the song Somebody to Love
Full Length Audition Pieces – remember when Rachel sang RESPECT and Rachel sang On My Own in the pilot episode to audition for Glee? This is the full length videos for both of those songs
Fox Movie Channel Presents Casting Session – showrunners, crew members and cast members discuss the origins of the show, as well as the casting process for the series and the individual characters
Deconstructing Glee with Ryan Murphy – the show’s creator discusses the themes behind the show, as well as casting the series
Dance Boot Camp – the show’s choreographer and the case members talks about teaching the cast choreography for the musical numbers and we see back-stage footage from the practices
Meet Jane Lynch – one of the funniest actresses on the show talks about her character
5 Things You Didn’t Know About …. – these were previously available on Fox, but included on the DVD are little videos with things you didn’t previously know about some of the cast members, including Jayma, Cory, Amber and Chris
Video Diaries – most of the cast members share video diaries they shot during various promotional appearances for the show
If that list of extras doesn’t interest you, then you are definitely not a Glee fan. I just love how creative they’ve gotten with the extras. Plus, as a TV addict I love to see the behind the scenes stuff for a show. The Glee DVD definitely hasn’t disappointed.
