I remember the first time I saw Glee back in 2009 like it was yesterday. It was on Star World Asia channel. I didn’t have much interest to keep watching, but I did force myself to be interested somehow, I don’t know why. Then I saw the bootlegged DVD and I thought it was a perfect way to catch up. It took me weeks to finally watch the first pilot episode due to lack of interest.
I was hooked instantly.
There was something about the show that made me happy, unlike other shows. The characters were quirky, fun, hilarious… the songs were catchy… and my love for Sue Sylvester’s hatred for Glee club and her clever insults.
I liked Finn. He came across as this soft, sweet, non-typical jock and naive looking. I was rooting for Rachel and Finn together. I was happy when they did, because it’s different. You don’t really see a jock or the school’s star quarterback who’s dating the captain of the cheerleader throwing away his popularity to be in a Glee club full of losers. That made me like the show.
Everything was about Glee back then.
