Wednesday, July 7, 2010: The Choir

Wednesday, July 7, 2010: <I>The Choir</I>

Aside from some returning shows, I think the new (or at least new to those who live in the US) series that I'm most excited about this entire summer is The Choir. It's a reality show and it's musical and it's from the UK, and all three things are checks in the positive column for me. After all, I did get obsessed with the Idol-esque musical casting shows Any Dream Will Do and How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?

Here, an adorable choir director by the name of Gareth Malone goes to off-the-beaten-path places and tries to create a choir that can compete in a high-level choir Olympics. It's like Glee, but without all of the annoying and unnecessary plot twists. I haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet, but I'm hoping it is as good as it's cracked up to be. It sounds sweet and uplifting, and I love a good underdog story, so I should like this one even more, since it involves singing. Anyway, I will be anxiously checking out the show. At the very least, it's got to be better than killing my brain cells slowly with America's Got Talent.

The Choir premieres tonight at 10 PM on BBC America.
