'Glee' Behind the Scenes: An Artsy Slideshow

With less than two weeks to go until the season premiere, Glee mania is in full swing: the first episode's track list has been revealed (get excited for covers of Jay-Z and Lady Gaga!), as well as the first full scene (brace yourself for more Sue Sylvester-Will Shuester feuding). The New York Times adds to the anticipation with a slideshow of behind-the-scenes images from the show.

The photos are different from the other images that have emerged in the run-up to the premiere. In contrast with the bright, poppy colors of the show's stills, posters, and video clips, these pictures are muted, introspective—at times even beautiful.

Here's Matthew Morrison, who plays the glee club's faculty advisor, channeling Bob Fosse:
