A Glee-ful weekend

Saturday morning the Spousal Equivalent and I went to see the Glee 3D movie. It's made for fans of the show. I know there were a number or two that were lip synced (heavy dance numbers). And Artie's "Safety Dance" made it all totally worth it.

Yesterday we watched the finale of the Glee Project. The SE stated that whomever won, he knew that all four would make it on the show. I thought Alex would win, not that I wanted him to win...

Here's my thoughts on the top 4.
  • Alex- he's Mercedes. As a guy. They already HAVE that.
  • Lindsey- She's Rachael, but with a mean girl potential. Again.. have that.
  • Samuel- He'd be great for the show! they don't have someone like him on there!
  • Damien- The Irish Finn. I wanted him to be on the show simply because one of the writers remarked that they'd make him a foot ball player, and have Brittney not understand a word he says. Love it!
In the end, Samuel AND Damien won. My two favorites! But the other two would also be given smaller parts.

I guess, in the end, the SE was right.

I've had a few conversations about Glee with people this summer. It seems to me that Glee is one of those "love it or hate it" shows. I know that the plot is unbelievable. I know that the second season was a bit inconstant. But I know those characters. I was them. I still am. I was the teenager that instead of going to parties, hung out with my friends on Friday nights. What is so remarkable about that? how many other teens spent it around a piano singing show tunes and choral music?

Yeah.... we were a bit odd....
