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.
Glee will never be the same again. You’re always gonna be thinking, “Finn is no longer alive…” when you watch Glee. I mean Finn Hudson was the main part of Glee and his relationship with Quinn at first, then with Rachel. I can’t imagine how Lea Michelle, who plays Rachel and also his real life gf, must be feeling and the rest of Glee cast. It’s never easy to handle the sudden death of someone you know, especially someone you’re very close with. My heart goes out to his family, friends, his gf Lea and the Glee cast and crew.
Yesterday I finally downloaded the finale for seasons 1 of GLEE. I was surprised that even though with constant crashing, and bandwidth throttling, slow download.. using my phone as modem, I still managed to download it. I’m happy.
I’m not going to spoil anything though. Finally spent some time today to watch the last few episodes that I haven’t watched yet.. from the episode with Neil Patrick Harris. I’m sad that Glee is over now.. but it’s coming back in September for season 2, I can’t wait! You know I have never been addicted to a TV show since Charmed. I don’t watch hour-long TV show because they bore me, except maybe a few. Oh and my mom has started to watch it too, and wanted to watch the finale today.. which is a huge shock since she has NEVER watched American TV show except a bit of Charmed, and that she was against Glee at first. She thinks Lea Michelle (who plays Rachel Berry) is an amazing singer.
My friend thinks Glee is like High School Musical. Well if you think about it, it kinda is but different in so many levels. I’m a fan of HSM but Glee is far from HSM. HSM is so typical Disney movie, where it’s all very cliche. Cute jock wants to sing, but afraid he’ll be ridiculed by his team mates, but then his team mates will also join, then includes the pretty girl who’s in love with the jock.. then there’s the rival…sounds a lot like Glee huh?
What’s different about Glee is that it deals with adult theme. The language also is not really appropriate for kids.. like for example, Sue Sylvester calling Mr William Schuester a “manwhore” and “slut”. The rest is typical.. you have different labels in the Glee club.. like the over-achiever annoying Rachel, the badass Puck, the cute jock Finn, the goth/emo weirdo Tina, the black sista Mercedes, the used-to-be-popular pregnant Quinn, the cheerleaders Santana and Brittany, the disabled kid Artie, the other Asian Mike, the other black (forgot his name), and the gay Kurt.
The best character in the series would have to be Sue Sylvester for me. I looooove Jane Lynch. She’s this sarcastic bitch that constantly insults Mr Schue (and his hair and chin) and despise the Glee club. Everything that Sue says never fail to make me laugh… I’ll paste some quotes from Sue that I found online:
Sue Sylvester: [writing in journal] Glee club. Every time I try to destroy that clutch of scab-eating mouth breathers it only comes back stronger like some sexually ambiguous horror movie villain. Here I am, about to turn 30, and I’ve sacrificed everything only to be shanghaied by the bi-curious machinations of a kabal of doughy misshapen teens. Am I missing something, Journal? Is it me? Of course its not me. Its Will Schuester. What is it about him, Journal? Is it the arrogant smirk? Is it the store-bought home perm? You know, Journal, I noticed something yesterday. Of course. Its coming clear to me now. If I cant destroy the club, I will have to destroy the man!
Sue Sylvester: [to Santana and Brittany] Ladies, I misjudged you. You may be the two stupidest teens I’ve ever encountered. And that’s saying something. I once taught a cheerleading seminar to a young Sarah Palin.
Will Schuester: Okay look Sue. If you’re back let’s bury the hatchet. Sue Sylvester: I won’t be burying any hatchets William unless I happen to get a clear shot to your groin. You humiliated me. Will Schuester: You did this to yourself Sue. All I did was enjoy watching it happen. Sue Sylvester: Yeah, well enjoy this William. Now that I’m back and my position is secured I will not stop until you’re fired and your little Glee Club is annihilated into oblivion. Will Schuester: Bring it. Sue Sylvester: Oh I will bring it, William. You know what else I’m gonna to bring? I’m gonna bring some Asian cookery to wipe your head with. Cause right now you’ve got enough product in your hair to season a wok.
Here’s an example of how awesome Sue is.. this clip shows some of her hair insults for Mr Schuester:
Sue Sylvester is AWESOME. Actually, Jane Lynch is awesome. I’ve seen a few movies and she’s that sarcastic in them.. like in ‘Role Models‘, ‘Another Cinderella Story‘.. ‘Two & A Half Men‘.. etc.
Love the songs in Glee too. Currently I’m so addicted to “Run Joey Run“… the video is like pure orgasmic because it has Finn, Puck and Jesse. I’m a sucker for guys in white shirt and black leather jacket and black pants. Is it getting hot in here??
(video is flipped to avoid being taken down by youtube)
The craziest episode would have to be The Gaga episode.. all of them with Gaga inspired clothing.. so ridiculous! Haha.. Tina with the bubble dress, and Kurt with I think 10 inch heels? And Rachel with dress filled with stuffed animals..then the boys in KISS makeup.. 😀
Anyways, the finale almost made me cry. 🙁 And oh well, no more Jesse and Vocal Adrenaline (their rival team). Jesse is so cute but too bad he’s gay in real life. So yeah, HSM maybe can be called the cleaner version of Glee, lol. Oh and Neil Patrick Harris was AWESOME in one episode 😀 Too bad Neil is also gay -.- You know, it’d be interesting if Jesse was paired up with Kurt instead of Rachel.. a gay relationship.. 😀 I wanna see Kurt in a relationship with a guy in seasons 2 even though he has the hot for Finn, lol.
It’s 5 am now so I better sleep.. mom was sleeping on my sofa aka bed, so I’ve been up all night watching stuff and putting up with my cat’s crazyness cuz she was bored so she didn’t shut up or sit still for almost 5 hours.. NONSTOP. Talk about driving me crazy. Now I need sleep.. if not I’d need like a dozen of wrinkle creams later for my under eyes @_@ Wait, I already do…. T___T
Whenever I hear the ‘Don’t Stop Believing‘ music on Star World Asia (the channel that airs Glee), I’d get up and prepare myself to dance… it’s infectious. It was so much fun that most of us want more, and are having the same post #GleeKL syndrome.
So, I’m currently trying to take my mind off the whole Glee thing because it’s driving me nuts. I’m still happy to be part of Malaysian ‘history’ as this is the first huge flash mob that is covered by a TV station. If you haven’t seen the Star World Asia’s promo on it that is shown on TV, here it is.
Anyways, I’ll be working on Sinfully Delicious (my food blog) tonight so that it won’t look abandoned anymore, and I could actually start posting. Seriously, I gotta stop abandoning my blogs because it’s such a waste financially -___-
I just found out today, after reading a retweet by my friend, that we’re having our own Glee flashmob! Woot!
I’m SO THERE. Being a huge GLEE fan and all.
At first I was hesitating, since I just found out about it today and then the first rehearsal is TOMORROW. I don’t know the dance! But then after watching the video, I learned the dance in an hour. It’s a piece of chocolate frosting oreo cheesecake. Easy to learn. So if you haven’t registered or don’t even know about the flash mob or a huge fan of Glee, what are you waiting for? JOIN IN. The more the better. This would be my first flash mob. Last time they wanted to do an MJ flashmob right after his death but it got canceled. I was sad. 🙁
