I'm a Gleek!

Yes, I'm in love with Glee. Last week the frenetic pace of Top Chef was making me so uptight I flipped the channel and accidentally found Glee. It's funny, heart-warming, satirical, dramatic and just plain old good storytelling! And there's singing AND dancing! What more could a guy want? I caught up by watching every episode on Hulu (love Hulu!) and when I ran out of episodes on Hulu, I turned to YouTube!

Every high school sterotype has been rounded up for this cast including the gay kid. I'm terribly gay-centric from the films I see, books I read and social activities/establishments I frequent so any program with gay characters is of interest to me. It's all about visibility and how it works to affect kids growing up where there might not be an gay visibility in their communities. If shows like this had been around when my generation was coming of age, we'd be different men and women of our age. And did I mention there's singing!



If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to watch, Wednesday nights at 9PM on FOX!

Really, though, I'm not sure how I feel about the song you posted...I love it as a duet, but the diva-off played out differently than the recording and the Wikipedia article I read before the episode came out. It just leaves me...I don't know what to think.

You know Will, I never listened to it all the way through until just now. I just assumed it was a recording of the diva-off from the show vs. the soundtrack they'll plan to sell to the masses. Oops.

I have to admit I'm quite smitten with this show. Almost every show I have to surreptitiously wipe a tear from my eye...either because I'm moved (usually), or because the song is quite sad.

I've heard so many good things about this show, I really should watch it. Especially having gone to Music & Art, the school in the movie Fame. Shame on me!

I am a gleek, too. I don't watch tv or have it in my home. I watch on Hulu. It's a fun show and there's tons of talent to watch.
