Giddy Over "Glee"!

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Diane Mizota: I know what you're thinking. "If I have to watch another 'High School Musical,' I'm going to stab my eyes out with a hot fork." But before you relegate "Glee" to the tween set, I BEG you to check it out. Singing comparisons aside, it's like the movie "Election" -- in "HSM" clothing. It's funny, smart, and has a lot of heart without being cheesy.

Glee television show

"Glee" is the underdog story of a ragtag high-school glee club. Set in the brutal caste system of high school, we find that the adult dynamics of the teachers haven't evolved much beyond those of the students, and that the rules of high school still apply. Creator Ryan Murphy strikes a tone that is irreverent and quirky, and transforms tried-and-true high-school stereotypes into deliciously flawed characters.

Rarely do I catch myself smiling ear to ear while watching television, but "Glee" got me. It's a show you can watch with your kids that's both edgy and sweet, with a genius pop soundtrack. ("Don't Worry, Be Happy" on steel drums? A high-school choir singing "Rehab"? "I Kissed a Girl" as an audition song? BRILLIANT.)

In an age when everyone feels entitled to be a judge of talent, this show is perfectly poised to tap into that -- but slyly invites you in to what being an artist is all about: passion. It's not about money or being cool; it's about expression and doing what you love, what makes you feel alive. (OK, now my inner theater geek is showing. But it is that good.) Seriously, watch this show!! You won't regret it.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

In the awesome design of things you receive a B+ with regard to hard work. Where you actually lost me personally was on your specifics. As people say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more true right here. Having said that, permit me inform you exactly what did work. The article (parts of it) is certainly very persuasive and this is possibly the reason why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can notice the leaps in logic you come up with, I am definitely not confident of exactly how you appear to connect your points which in turn help to make your conclusion. For the moment I will subscribe to your point however hope in the future you link the facts better.
