My New Boyfriends*
I am seriously so full of glee right now.
I mean, I love finding a new movie or TV show that I enjoy, but it’s rare for me to find one that I love. In the history of my TV career I have watched many, many different shows, and I can count the ones I really love on one hand:
2) Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
Words cannot express how much I am loving this show. Like, the seven days between episodes is WAY too long. If you aren’t watching it yet, start now. RIGHT now. Here are two very good reasons why:

Meet Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith — a Canadian!!) and Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison), my new TV boyfriends. My list of TV boyfriends began many moons ago with my love for Seth Cohen and Derek Shepherd… but over time my love has waned and I’ve found myself TV boyfriend-less for a long time. There were men I admired, but none that took that special place in my heart… until now. Oh Glee–how did you know that I LOVE TV men that can sing?! *swoon*
Finn is probably my favourite character on the show because I freaking love his voice, his desire to find out who he is and his courage to try new things. He is the boy I think we all wanted to find in high school–come on now, a singing football star with a heart? If I was still 16 his face would be all over my walls right now (sorry JTT, but you’ll always have a special place in my heart!) At first I felt like a total cradle robber as I swooned over a TV high school boy, but thank goodness for Google–in real life he is actually 27. Haha!
And then there is Mr. Shuester… I don’t think he does nearly enough singing in the show, but I’m hoping that will change as the show progresses. I love how much he cares about his students and loves his job… that’s the kind of teacher that I want to be.
I just… love. There are no words. It’s the club I wished for in high school (I played all the sports, but there wasn’t nearly enough music for me. *sigh*) and I love the music! I think it’s fabulous that they are integrating music into the TV show–it’s sort of like a mini-musical and as one who has always loved musicals, I hope it will do wonders to help a new generation appreciate this type of music. It’s fun, it makes fun (it’s often satirical), and it’s downright hilarious. I can’t help but be excited as I watch the show as it’s absolutely infectious.
On a more teacherish note, I think it’s wonderful that the show is breaking apart stereotypes that we’ve seen in schools for ages. It’s teaching its viewers about finding self-confidence, not being afraid to try something new, and believing in and finding yourself–a lesson so many kids (and adults) need to begin learning. It’s full of all kinds of other crap too, but I love the underlying messages in each episode (except for the scary cheer leading coach. She’s a whole lot of crazy).
Anyway, I was just watching clips from the show online and got so excited I just had to tell you. If you’re still on the fence about the show, take a second and watch the following clips. If you’re not in love with it after watching… well, I’ll be Gleeful for you. ;)
Me prior to seeing this: I will likely never watch Glee
Me after seeing this AND watching that video in my office where I am super busy: WHEN IS THIS SHOW ON and how soon can I watch it????
It really is a very fun, clever, witty show.
My new favorite show, however, is Flashforward. I am in love.
lol. I'm in australia right now on a holiday/work break and they are making a huge deal out of this show!! But I haven't seen it yet. But I guess I have to give it a go after this review!! :D
I am seriously obsessed with Glee. I adored the first episode so much last spring that I kept it on my DVR until the season started up again. I won't admit to how many times I've watched it!
Hmm… apparently Internet Explorer does not want me posting on your site…
I absolutely adore this show. It's about time TV came out with something new that is worth watching.
Cory Monteith is 27? And Canadian!? I don't care if I'm not 16 anymore, I still want to post him on my wall. Of course I won't for my fiance's sake…
I'm really curious to see how this show affects music education in Canada. This could be a really positive thing.
Huhuhu so many people tell me how good it is ! I already see the dvds in store , should i buy?:P
Absolutely!!! This show is SO good… I love it!
Really? Is that the first time IE hasn't let you post, or has it been going on for a while?!
And I KNOW–a show like Glee is long overdue. I really hope that it does have a positive effect on music education!!
haha I've only seen it twice so far (but then again I've only had it for a week. Is that bad? haha)
It's SUCH a good show.
Oh please do! You'll be hooked! :)
Flash Forward? I've never even heard of it… I'll have to check it out. You think it's better than Glee!?
YAY! I'm so glad I changed your mind! Haha! It's such a fun show!
I believe it shows on Wednesday nights around 9pm here. Just look it up online, I'm sure you can find it! :)
They are completely different genres. I like Glee a lot, but I think
thar The Office and 30 Rock are wittier. Flashforward is a
drama/thriller and it's awesome.
I’m watching it, and I love it too! Such a fun show!
I'm watching it, and I love it too! Such a fun show! I wish there was more stuff like this on television.
So I just watched a clip of Flashforward and I think I might have to start watching this show. (Partly because Morgan Freeman voiced over a commercial before I watched the clip… ha)
I also LOVE 30 Rock and mostly love the Office. The Hubster thinks it's gone downhill in recent seasons but I still kinda like it.
Oh goodness, me too. I think musicals need to come back in a BIG way. :)
OMG, I so need to start watching this.
Children of the 90s
YES I am so with you 100% on this. My boss actually told me about Glee, and I've been completely hooked ever since! The musical numbers are great and it's one of the only shows that regularly makes me laugh out loud.
YAY! Me too. Not just like, LOVE.
Yes, yes you do. You will LOVE it.
I know, right? I haven't laughed like this since Frasier, and every. single. episode makes me want to get out of chair and dance! SUCH a good show!
Ow i completly argee with you only I can hang them all over my walls (sorry zac, rob and taylor) but they don't play it on tv down here*snif*
