I am obsessed with Glee. I remember last season I didn’t watch any of it – both Sam and I were like, “Who wants to watch a bunch of high schoolers sing and dance their way though an hour of TV? NOT US!” Even though, um, we were both in choir and drama all through high school, so I don’t know where we got the idea we wouldn’t like it from.

Then everyone kept raving about it – Glee this and Glee that. I finally caved and put them all in my Netflix queue, without telling Sam. When the first one arrived, I prepared him by letting him know: yes we had Netflix, no he wasn’t going to see Iron Man. (Lame-o). He told me point blank, “Glee is going to be stupid and I’m going to hate it.”
I promised him we would turn it off if it was really dumb.
3 1/2 hours later we were both on the edge of the couch watching it, and pausing to occasionally rewind a part or comment on something (like how insane Will’s wife is). We got the second disk the next night, and watched it till midnight when our eyes were ready to fall out. I begged Sam to save the last episode on that disk till the next night, but noooo – someone just had to see it. Since Glee is so dumb and all.
I just re-watched the third disk today.
Basically it’s the most addictive show ever. I keep thinking,”Sometimes the plot in this makes no sense.” Then they come up with some amazing mix of songs, or Sue tells the cheerleaders to smell their armpits in order to smell failure, or goes on TV to discuss the benefits of caning – and I forgive the fact that Rachel has fallen in love with just about everyone in one episode and Finn is annoying, and why on earth is Will so stupid when it comes to his wife’s fake pregnancy?
Could Glee get any better? I don’t think so.
Well, yes. Yes it could. They could have Puck lose his ability to wear a shirt for the rest of the season. Like maybe all his shirts burn up in a fire. Or they all shrink in the wash and he’s too poor to buy more. Or something.
Hey, he’s 28 in real life. That doesn’t make me a pedophile, thanks.
