I've been trying to collect my feelings on the first season of Glee. It's difficult. For one thing, the experience has been spread out over the course of a year. There was awe-inspiring debut back in May 2009. Then the unsteady episodes in early fall - forget all the fake pregnancies, remember Acafellas?
