1. I'm a bit of a teeny bopper. I love GLEE.
I wasn't into when the show first premiered, but last spring John and I watched the whole series in two weeks. The story lines and writing aren't anything special, although amusing at times. And I do applaud some of their "stories with a message" episodes from last season- teen pregnancy, disAbilities, gay acceptance. What I LOVE is the music and guest stars.
As my former roommates will attest to, I don't have a varied music selection. My rotation consists of: Christmas music (starting in October), Jimmy Buffett, 80's music, A Cappella (hello Madison Project) show tunes (Rent and Grease frequently), and bits of current pop. I love me some show tunes; I love Broadway. I'm also a big a cappella fan (and even watched that show with Nick Lachey last winter) . Last spring John came home with the first Glee CD days before our flight to Florida, made for a nicer flight. Since then, I've bought most of their songs via itunes.
And on my Glee, the guest stars!
Idina Menzel- I've already shared how much I love her! I will be very disappointed if she doesn't return this season.
Kristen Chenoweth- is amazing and a real B'way star.
NPH- who doesn't love some NPH? I love me a guy who can sing.
Yes, 2 of those three people have been in RENT. Not a coincidence.
Confession number2- I'm a bit of a nerd. I never thought it would happen, but I like a show on the Sci-Fi channel.
This show is totally random, cheesy, frequently makes no sense and has horrible special effects. However, it is one of those summer season shows, so it is my "poor man's Bones".
Your turn, any odd TV viewing habits?
