If, like us, you have practically worn out your Glee DVD, already have all of the downloads on a constant loop on your iPod and yet still can't stop thinking about the show, we've come up with some suggestions that will keep a song in your heart while you wait for the series to finally return from its inordinately long hiatus in April.
Go Back to High School with Popular DVDs
If you're obsessed with Ryan Murphy's twisted look at high school outcasts on Glee, then you must discover the insanity of Popular, his WB show. Even if you've already watched it once, it's worth another look for Mary Cherry alone! (Did someone say crossover? Did someone say substitute teacher Leslie Grossman?)
Listen to the Spring Awakening Soundtrack
Love hearing Lea Michele bust out songs as Rachel? Listen to this album as she suffers the horrors of school in Germany in the late 1800s. The musical is filled with repression, profanity and even more repression, not to mention gay characters and teen pregnancy. It's like a really retro Glee.
Watch Encores of The Pregnancy Pact on Lifetime
Lifetime movies aren't exactly good, but they are certainly campy fun and The Pregnancy Pact, with its overacted dramatics about a group of teens planning to get pregnant at the same time, should fill your void for all of the bizarre baby bump madness that tends to happen on Glee.
Skip to the Singing Scenes on Pushing Daisies
Pushing Daisies is wonderful, but if you just need your next fix of musical numbers, skim through the episodes to find Glee guest star Kristin Chenoweth belting her tiny little heart out to numbers like "Birdhouse in Your Soul" and "Hopelessly Devoted to You."
Watch Jessalyn Gilsig Die on Nip/Tuck
Upset that Terri totally lied to the adorably dopey Will Schuester for the first half of the season? Watch her nutty character Gina on Nip/Tuck as she comes to a most untimely, but well-deserved, demise.
Meet Figure Skater Johnny Weir
There's little that's more fabulous on television these days than the over-the-top Glee, but Olympic figure skating might give it a run for its money -- especially the amazingly glittering and theatrical Johnny Weir. Check out his Sundance Channel show, watch his "Poker Face" performance or just tune in to the Olympics to see him in action.
Rent Julie & Julia
Don't worry, we're not suggesting you sit through the painful Amy Adams portions. Just watch the bits in which Meryl Streep's Julia Child interacts with her equally fabulous sister played by Jane "Sue Sylvester" Lynch. Watching these two together just never gets old. And that's how we 'C' it.
We've also got Glee video clips and interviews to sate your appetite. If you have other (preferably musical) tips, leave 'em below.
