Appealing to my inner gay man

by statia on October 16, 2009

I get all of my news and latest happenings from twitter.  Be it the trends or just from other people’s tweets.  Who the hell needs the news when you have eleventy billion of your closest friends giving you reports?

I kept seeing all of these tweets for Glee.  Normally, I don’t care too much about TV, but maybe it was the name that made me curious. Thank god for Hulu.   At first I was kinda like, “eh, I don’t know why this is so great, except for the fact that it’s like an episode of Grease, no, Grease 2, every single week.  By the end of watching the pilot, I was hooked and in love, because please, a musical?  You might as well take hazlenuts and mix them with chocolate.  Or cranberry and vodka, or barley and hops.  You get the idea.

The Meester wasn’t really that impressed with it, but then again, he hated Grease 2, because he is not from this planet, therefore, not normal.

I’m not sure what I love more about this show, the fact that they’ve done these fantastic remakes of the songs of my youth, or the political incorrectness of it.   It’s a pretty tough call to say which I love more.

And while I love some political incorrectness, especially with how far they tow the line here, I’m having a little bit of a problem with the fake pregnancy story line.   I like that they put a crazy infertile in there and all, but the rest of it just isn’t jiving with me.

Maybe even after all that I’ve been given, and maybe even though my baby making days and my infertility, while not completely gone, are now behind me, I guess certain things relating to pregnancy will just always sting.

I am so loving this show, but I’m having issues with the faux pregnancy too. Are people really that stupid? & did I hear right that the girl had her 10-week ultrasound to find out the baby’s gender? Um, okay. At least do a little google research, writers.

I hate everything about the pregnancy storyline(s). Seems to be a universal sentiment among infertiles and normals alike–maybe the writers will clue in. I’m praying for a convenient TV miscarriage (and faux-miscarriage) so we can all move on.

Though I did laugh at the stupidity of Will who thought the ultrasound of his wife’s knee was the baby.

I love Glee too!

I don’t like Terri’s fake pregnancy but I do have compassion for the character. She’s desperate and has painted herself into a corner. I wonder how they’re going to reslove the whole thing, really. I had to laugh when the sister threatened the ob-gyn with a lawsuit, saying that too much pitocin had given her kids red hair!

Oh thank god someone mentioned the 10 week ultrasound for baby gender. I was calling bullshit on that and Amy was like “dude, it’s TV” and I’m like “IDON’TCAREIWILLEATYOURFACERAWR!” Electriclady, I was under the impression he was playing a previous ultrasound. No? “Your knee is a girl” is pretty goddamn funny though.

Also, where does the pollen go?

I ♥ Glee very much. But the last Ep was too much of the show-tunes sing-songy stuff. I like the pop stuff more. Plot line is still great, though I’d like to reach thru the screen and strangle his wife and her terrible sister.
