Fame Obsession

Have you heard of Glee?
Do you watch it? Are you a GleeK?

What is Glee?
"Glee is a musical comedy-drama television series that airs on Fox in the United States. It focuses on the high school glee club New Directions competing on the show choir competition circuit, while its members deal with relationships, sexuality and social issues." Thank you kindly Wiki.
It first aired in September of 2009 and has rapidly conquered the nation. I watched my first episode after the Superbowl, their Zombie choreography impressed me and so did their singing. Their good. At first I believed it was the logical step after High School Musical (1&2) - 2006, which was an obvious remake of Grease (1&...2) - did you know it came out in 1978?  Netflix recently showed me that I was missing something in between, Fame.

Yes, Fame. I'm not talking about the 2009 or 1980 movie of the same name, but the TV series of 1982. It seems as though, like fashion, Musical Comedy-drama television series come around again. Fame is based in the New York School of Arts where young dancers, singers, actors and musicians strive to reach their dream while dealing with an entire armada of teen problems. It's addictive. I particularly enjoy their reflective walks in Central Park.

All this to explain my next two sketches which just happen to be of the cast of Fame. Two for one today because I'm behind on my posting.

Both sketches are of Lydia the Dance Teacher played by Debbie Allen. I love her style and her hair!
