Monday's Movie and TV Talk! (8)

Welcome to Monday's Movie and TV Talk! I don't know if I'll do this every Monday, or just sporadically on Mondays, but I LOVE TV and movies, so I figured why not add some of that to the blog for fun?? It'll be especially awesome when I can tie things into the YA book world... 

Okay, so I've been a GLEEk since the beginning... I love high school dramas, I love singing...what was not to love? The first season was amazing and though the show struggled a little in season 3 (tacking on what I thought was a needlessly cruel final episode for the season), I persevered and hung on to see how the show's creators would continue in season 4. 

Now, though, I'm sad to say that I think GLEE has finally lost me. 

With storylines that are bouncing from one state to the next, characters being added, and old favorites taking on new (and mostly unwelcome) changes in their character choices, I just find that I no longer CARE.  

I LOVE THE MUSIC. I still love the music. I would watch just a 25 min compilation every week of their musical performances... I just have no desire to follow the character arcs anymore.  And, it breaks my heart. I used to be so invested in what was going to happen...who would find "true love," who would overcome adversity, who would back-stab whom... and now it all just seems meaningless. 

Has anyone else been experiencing this LACK of enthusiasm for GLEE?  Does anyone think I should hold on? I want to say I'll watch through the end of the season...but I'm not even motivated to watch the next episode... 


  1. I gave up on Glee after season 2. I thought it stopped being clever. To me, it seemed as though the first season was very tongue in cheek and a satire of high school dramas. Then in season 2 suddenly it became "oh, actual tweens are watching this! Let's stop making fun of those teen shows and become one!" which lost me. And I just stopped caring for the storylines.

    1. Yes, season 2 was the start of actual cautionary storylines, etc... and I stuck with it because I loved the music, but now I'm thinking that's not even enough to hold me anymore :/

  2. What I only watched on Glee is their performance not the whole story itself
