NKOTBSB Official Poster

You know it’s a great, great time for boybands when two of the biggest acts of that genre get together and spontaneously decide to go on tour together.

He also has to face much scrutiny from the cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) while he works out his own personal issues.

Gleeks, a combination of Glee and geeks, is the name of the show’s large fanbase, who are the major party responsible for transforming the show into a phenomenon. Their impact has been huge, but I am not surprised.
