I haven't posted in awhile but whatever I'm here now.
I have recently discovered Glee on Fox. I know it's been out since September, but I'm one person, I can only watch so much television.
Especially the fall line up, most of the new stuff only lasts a few episodes then it's cancelled.
I hate that, it's not like the network will give me a refund for my time.
Anyway I am loving Glee. It just the right amount of crazy and musical theatre. Way cooler than it sounds.
The concept for the show is a group of misfits high schoolers who...... you guessed it........joined the Glee Club. For those of you who don't know what that is. Here is wiki link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glee_club
So our misfits are lead by a well meaning but clueless teacher, whose wife is even more clueless. His goal is to restart the Glee club and keep it going. To do that he needs funding, and for that they must win awards.
I know so far it sounds like every inspirational movie you've ever seen. All we need now is Denzel telling us to remember the Titans.
You can relax though, in between bitchin musical numbers we have teen drama. Not 90210 drama, this drama is tongue in cheek.
Thank god. I cannot take another teen drama that actually thinks it's real
. (I'm looking at you cast of OC)
Here are some lines from the show. Rachel
: I tried (to vomit) but I guess I just don’t have a gag reflex.Counselor Emma
: One Day when you’re older, that’ll turn out to be a gift.Quinn to her cheerleaders:
God bless the perv that invented these (short cheerleader skirts). Remember the power motto, girls. It’s all about the teasing and not about the pleasing.Random cheerleader:
Ooh back it up like a dump truck.
The enemy of our sweet teach Will is Sue the cheer-leading coach. Who is freakin insane, and yet might be funniest person on the show.
In an effort to get rid of Will and keep all of her funding for the cheer-leading squad Sue actively tries to break up the club or Will's marriage.
You know whatever works.
Here is line she said to his wife while trying to convince her he's having an affair.
"Let me be frank: Your husband's hiding his kielbasa in a Hickory Farms gift-basket that doesn't belong to you."
Her comment on another teacher.
"a mentally-ill ginger pygmy with eyes like a bush baby"...
Sue also takes a pro littering stance. Throws out random racism and wants to win cheer-leading competitions for the funding. She wants the money to buy a hovercraft.
Beyond the clueless characters is the music. Which I say again is bitchin.
They cover a wide range of songs and are just amazing. Here look.
