So, a friend recently tweeted that “Glee” is coming out (hee hee!) with a 3-D movie version of their summer concert tour later in August. Notwithstanding the fact that I won’t watch ANY 3-D movie because they make me dizzy and nauseated, I certainly will NOT be going to this one.
You may ask the question: why bother devoting your time (or in this case, a blog post), to something that you don’t like? Don’t you have better things to do? Well, yes, I do. The thing is, I’m not sure why I dislike “Glee” so much. Two of my very close male friends are ardent fans, and my best friend actually convinced me to watch the show once. “It’s awesome!”, he said. “You’ll love it!”. Off I went to download the first 3 episodes (I do this with most new-to-me-shows), and I sat down to watch the pilot. I got about 5 minutes into the show, and had to turn it off because I disliked it so much. This is the same girl who still sings along to Backstreet Boys songs, who has the songs “Insensitive”, “Stupid”, and “Call and Answer” on her iPod, and who loves going to professional and, yes, high school musicals. Speaking of “High School Musical”, I wasn’t a fan of that either. Perhaps that’s why I don’t like “Glee”; to me, it’s basically a “grown-up” version of the tween franchise. Yes, I know the storyline is different, but hey- they both take place in high schools!
To those who ARE “Glee” fans; I apologize right now. The who know me can attest to the fact that I am MORE stubborn than a mule, and that I defend my (often strong) opinions to the death. I don’t like the show, so by extension I’m not going to be a fan of the concert tour movie. I’ll try and restrain myself as best I can when someone posts something about it, but sometimes something just slips out! I am a realist; for example, my bff and I have been friends for 20 years. I like the Backstreet Boys; he hates them. I liked the show “ER”; he did not. He likes “Glee”; I don’t. I’m sure there are countless other likes and dislikes as well! However, we have managed to stay friends and have never, not ONCE, gotten into a fight about anything, let alone entertainment choices. I hope it stays that way with all my friends, and I use this as an open invitation to give me a slap on the wrist if I’m mean, or if *gasp* my sarcastic streak comes out once in awhile. Do understand, though, that this passionate, stubborn streak also makes me a very loyal friend. I promise! 😀
p.s.- I really don’t like “”Seinfeld, and two of my all-time favorite shows are “Golden Girls” and “Three’s Company”. I suppose I’m really in no place to mock the “Glee”-watchers out there! :p We all have our “things”, and it’s part of what makes us interesting 🙂
