Glee-full, or how I finally crossed over to the Gleek-side

I’d heard about Glee, but I’d resisted watching. I really don’t know why, because it is exactly the sort if show I *would* like. Then one night last January I was looking for something to watch and found it on “On Demand.”

The Rocky Horror episode.

I was hooked. I watched all the other eps available on demand and online. I watched the Super Bowl “Zombies” ep. I bought the Season 1 DVDs so I could catch up.

I fell in love. With Rachel and Finn and Finchel. And Kurt. And, yes, Puck. Because bad boys….

Yeah, you know.

And Sue Sylvester. There are no words for how evil the character is. Or how talented her portrayer Jane Lynch is.

So now I am waiting for Prom and Nationals, like all the other Gleeks.

And reading spoilers, because I am a spoiler whore.

So, here’s a prediction. According to multiple sources, a beloved female character dies in the episode Funeral (week after next.) I think it will be Becky — she’s the only character (except for the Cheerios) that I can think of that would get both Sue and Will at the funeral as well as all the Glee kids.

We’ll see in 2 weeks.

Oh… and Finchel all the way. Dianna Agron is a lovely actress but I’ve fallen for the Finn and Rachel chemistry. Not to mention Lea Michele’s voice. Watch any of her clips on the official Glee site to see (and hear) what I mean. And much as I like watching Michele duet with Cory Monteith (Finn), my absolute favorite so far was a duet she did with Chris Colfer (Kurt) in the episode “Duets,” a mashup of  “Get Happy” & “Happy Days Are Here Again” that was actually an homage to Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland, who did it first in 1960. Wish I could show you the Glee version, as it is just amazing, but enjoy the originals instead:

On another note, the $100 VISA card giveaway on my Chow Hounds post is over, and   I will announce the winner in my next post.
