What a Wonderful Day...
Yesterday was. Oxygen had an all day marathon of Glee. I had seen a few episodes here and there but I never got into the show. I don't know why , though. The show exudes sarcasm. I haven't seen that quality of sarcasm since Frasier and Cheers. I think what turned me away was the kids. I've never liked kid shows, even when I was a kid. But it's not really a 'kid show.' I watched about 6 hours of Glee yesterday.
But after looking at the show a few times, I can see the show's brilliance. It has several layers so that several age groups and demographics can relate to and appreciate the show. I think Jane Lynch steals the show. Without her, the show would be a musical version of Dawson's Creek or some other show with a bunch of teenagers in it.
I'm an awful singer, and I hate dancing, yet I find the song and dance sequences funny. It makes me want to sing myself. I won't sing in public because I'm so bad at it, but my dogs absolutely love it when I sing.
I said I hate dancing, but as anyone in law school will know , rules have exceptions and exceptions have exceptions. The exception to my dancing is when I'm with my dogs. It may be hard to believe, but they absolutely go nuts when I dance. The jump up and down and start playing hard. Had my dogs been younger, I probably would be dancing in the privacy of my living room during one of the song and dance sequences in Glee. Abby and Andy , my dogs, would have gone nuts. Instead, I just sit there and quietly watch now that Abby is gone and Andy is old and arthritic.
I think I'll start watching Glee regularly, now.
