Season 1 Episode 1

Title: Pilot
Air Date: May 19, 2009 at 12:00 AM PDT

McKinley High School's Spanish teacher, Will Schuester, takes over New Directions, the school's glee club, after the former director, Sandy Ryerson, gets fired for inappropriate behavior toward a male student. He has hopes of restoring it to its former glory. His motley glee crew consists of Rachel Berry, the overly ambitious and talented singer who is bullied by the cheerleaders (Cheerios) and football players; Kurt Hummel, a male soprano who is also bullied; Artie Abrams, a wheelchair-bound guitar player; Mercedes Jones, a blinged-out diva who refuses to sing back-up; and Tina Cohen-Chang, an Asian-American goth with a speech impediment. They can't even get in sync, let alone consider the dream of competing in Regionals and Nationals. But we have a feeling that they'll find a way to improve, considering the season is more than just one episode long.  Read full recap
