I used to LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show! First season, I waited with bated breath to see each episode. It was like a fabulous smorgasbord of Broadway hits, boy band jams, peppered with the occasional New Jack Swing. I couldn’t get enough.
Those days are over.
All the characters seem to have devolved into pathetic stereotypes – the bitchy diva, the dumb jock, the bitter overweight girl, the dumb blonde, the slutty cheerleader. And who writes this show? I can just see the storyboard. “Okay – this week – Sue will try to sabotage Glee club, Will will save the day, one of the students will cheat on their boyfriend/girlfriend, and then Rachel will sing a big power ballad.
Where is John Stamos? And I need more Darren Criss!
Now, I’m forced to sit through Justin Bieber covers.
There are too many story lines, too many characters, and not enough originality. How about a Little Shop of Horrors episode, with John Stamos as the Dentist, Emma as Audrey, and Will as Seymour. And Mercedes, Rachel, and Tina could be the choir.
Glee started out as a show about outcasts trying to navigate through the treacherous halls of high school. Now its just about a group of unpopular kids with no morals. No wonder they never fit in.
My baby boy is four months old today and I’m ready to get back in shape. I’ve already lost all my pregnancy weight but I still would like to tone up. As a former ballroom dancer, I’ve never stuck with a consistent weight program – relying in the past on pilates and dancing. I’ve done the first 2 days of this 90 day program and I really liked it. Then, my luck, I was sick all week so I’ve yet to start back up. It’s hard to get out of the house since I’m still breastfeeding exclusively but Connor is going to start rice cereal this week so maybe I’ll be able to escape and take some dance classes again. I’ll post my results at the 30, 60 and 90 day marks. Plus check out my cool DCC ticker I made!
