There. I said it. I tried it three times because all of my favorite people really enjoy Glee. The banter can be witty, I'll certainly give it that. And I mad love Jane Lynch. The next time you don't know what to put on your Netflix's que, try Best in Show and A Mighty Wind. She is brilliant. But, in the midst of all that witty banter, do you know what they do? They break into song. Ah hell no. Not since Vanilla Sky and Born on the Forth of July have I ever been so disgruntled about my wasted time. (Huh? One of these things is not like the other. I do not know why my list of things that make me disgruntled includes two Tom Cruise movies and Glee.)
It's not necessarily a cover song thing. Some songs can be covered and they come out just fine. See Fine Young Cannibals, Suspicious Minds. Maybe it was that the show started off covering Journey. Ah, no. You don't go there. You either are Steve Perry or you are not Steve Perry and if you are not Steve Perry than you do not sing Journey songs period. It's blasphemy.
Maybe its that we dislike characteristics in others that we dislike in ourselves. I was a precocious stage child. And all I can say is that Glee makes me want to apologize to my parents for all those times my friends and I made them watch us sing and dance to my Grease record. I'm sorry.
Or maybe its because the redhead seems to be all Anthropologie all the time. I love me some Anthropologie. I have a lust-worthy collection of Anthro sweater coats. But it's best used one piece at a time.
Wow. We've covered a lot of ground. I'm off to a 7:00a.m. meeting which is just wrong.
