Los Angeles, CA, United States (CNS) – “‘Glee’ Season 1: Road to Sectionals” is currently available on DVD.

The smash hit musical high school series makes its debut on home video from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The show has been one of the biggest successes of the season, gaining commercial and critical praise, including the Los Angeles Times, which proclaimed it “one of the best shows of the fall season.”

The show follows the glee club of William McKinley High School, which faces constant bullying from both students and staff despite the efforts of new instructor and former member Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) to get the club the attention and respect it deserves. Doing everything to undermine him is the school’s cheerleading coach (Jane Lynch), though Will does receive support from the school counselor (Jayma Mays). And his wife Terri (Jessalyn Gilsig) is insisting that he get a better paying job than his line of work as a Spanish/glee teacher.

The show’s renderings of popular songs have resulted in a varied soundtrack, featuring everything from classic rock to hip hop. Among the music covered by the Glee Club are Queen’s “Somebody To Love,” Heart’s “Alone,” Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” Céline Dion’s “Taking Chances,” Rihanna’s “Take A Bow,” Carrie Underwood’s “Last Name,” Jazmine Sullivan’s “Bust Your Windows,” Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” and REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling.”

The first season has featured appearances by numerous Broadway veterans, including Victor Garber, Debra Monk, John Lloyd Young and Kristin Chenoweth. The show’s success has also resulted in Golden Globe nominations for Best Comedy Series, Actress (Lea Michele), Actor (Morrison) and Supporting Actress (Lynch).

The special features include the director’s cut of the series pilot, behind-the-scenes featurettes, cast audition videos and more.

“‘Glee’ Season 1: Road to Sectionals” retails on DVD for $39.98.
