Glee

At the risk of sounding like a pussy, Glee is a great show. Tonight's episode was fantastic from start to finish.

Consider me a huge fan as well. I lurve Amber Riley way more than is natural, and Jane Lynch is my new favourite TV actress.

The only problems I've had in the past have been few and far between; the exceptional sound design is sometimes a bit jarring when mingled with the rest of the show. As in, the sound is almost too perfect for the songs. But, whatever, I'm not really complaining about that. I also thought the pregnancy storyline dragged on way too long. Way way too long. I didn't care for that at all; I wanted to see the kids sing and the high school drama.

Also, it sucks monkey balls that we have to wait four months for new episodes. Just one of many things in my life the Olympics will totally fuck up.

Pussy.

On that note. I often refer to this show as "Squee". Ya know... in my own head... away from anyone else... so that I too won't be called a pussy.

Glee is the highlight of my week. I can't explain why, but I'm head over heels in love with Kurt.

They give Jane Lynch all the best lines. Last night she had some doozies.

The wife and I also had a conversation about the HS band that is always there at the ready, can play any song... well, and needs no more direction than; "Follow my lead." or "Try to keep up."

But yeah, I love the show too.

I definitely have my problems with it (inconsistent characters, the pregnancies) but it's easy to overlook them when their songs are as terrific as they've been lately and when Jane Lynch gets more than five minutes of screen time. Those two things alone make it worth it. "Don't Rain on My Parade" into "You Can't Always Get What You Want" was probably one of the best things I've seen on TV in a while. And Sue saying "A failed president!" and the principal responding with "He was the best president!" was so terrific.

Which Defying Gravity is your favorite- Rachel solo, Kurt solo or the duet? I tend to like Rachel solo the best but all three versions are great. The arrangement is fantastic.

I bought the duet but I like Rachel's solo better.

The Auto-Tune is definitely jarring.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Is it bad that I really enjoyed Glee?
I'm a straight 33 year old bloke. I'm not being homophobic or anything, but I was pretty sure the programme was only aimed at women and 'the gays'

It was a real uplifting show. Just seen the 1st two episodes but its cool. The main guy reminds me of Chris Klein tho, but its good
I'd be happy to kill her, she called me a fish.

No.

Good TV is good TV. I daresay I'm even more outside the target demographic than you.

Yup... i'm not ashamed at all either. One of the best shows on TV. Even if they didn't sing it would still be a great show.

I would refer you to watch the episode of the Brady Bunch where Rosie Greer helps Peter learn you can sing in the glee club and still be macho.

Any truth to the rumour Joss Wheden is directing an episode and getting NPH to star?

Whedon directing is a done deal. NPH starring in it is still not confirmed but very likely. I hear it'll air during May sweeps.

I liked this show a lot, but also thought it had a lot of flaws.

But now that it's on hiatus, I feel like I can't wait the 60-some days until it returns. I want it now!

And then, after months of waiting, I thought that was somewhat of a disappointment. I didn't like anyone in that episode, and none of the songs were spectacular. However, I have high hopes for Madonna week next week.

I know exactly of what you speak and yet -- the Sue/"Vogue" video was priceless, as was Kevin's look when Finn sings "Hello" and...

"Did you know that dolphins were just gay sharks?" made me laugh out loud for five minutes. In fact, that whole scene was awesome.


(btw, some of us, ahem, actually do still say "Ahoy Ahoy" when answering the phone)
