OK, I LOVED the first episode of Glee…and liked the second one, but not as much as the first. The characters are SO over the top in many circumstances that I’m afraid I’m going to tire of it…but I’ll probably just keep watching because of the music! Reasons I loved week one:
1. In the premiere, they sang Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'”. I think I’m in heaven. Here’s my favorite clip from the premiere.
2. The lead high school boy’s name in the show is Finn. Which was on my short list when naming Jack Henry, but guess who didn’t like it? I’ll let you do the math. I think I have a little bit of a crush on Finn (he’s 27 in real life, so that feels less cougar-ish than, say, my crush on Z ac E fron).
3. I loved high school. I was not (and am not) at all musically talented, but I was a dancer and loved the choreography in the show (OK, I cannot STAND Kan ye, but the clip from week 2 had such a fun dance routine).
4. The lead actor, who plays the teacher in charge of the glee club (Mr. Schuester), seems like a really likable guy with a nutty wife. And he sang “Leaving on a Jet Plane” a capella.
Get yourself over to hulu to catch up if you missed it! Oh, and it’s not for kids. Episode 3 is on tonight at 8 on Fox.
I will also be watching: Biggest Loser (did you see it last night?!?), The Office, and maybe The Amazing Race. And on occasion Cold Case, but I usually forget it’s on. I’m sure people are excited about “Community” but it doesn’t look that funny to me (Joel McHale is hilarious on “Talk Soup” but this show looks weak). What about you?
