Gleek?

So I went back in my archives and found a review I wrote up about Glee back on May 29th, 2009.

“I was bored yesterday and went to Hulu.com to watch an old family guy or something but I’d seen them all and came across a show called Glee. I had no idea what I was about to watch but I thought I read something saying it was decent. It was set in a high school and there’s a teacher who becomes the head of the Glee Club. By the way, his wife is really hot but she’s a complete bitch but does some good acting. I can tell its not going to be a really funny series but it has some potential because the characters seem pretty well developed. For being about something stupid like the Glee club I thought the show was above average. I watched only the Pilot and the series is coming out fall of 09 but it’s worth a watch if you have 45 minutes to kill.”

If you’ve been living under a rock, this show has become one of Fox’s hit series. I’ve followed the show and will continue to agree that it is a good watch. I actually don’t like watching it in real time with commercials so I DVR it and fast forward some through some parts. Specifically the slow songs just get the >>>>> (that’s five) DVR fast forward. I however do want to impregnate Dianna Argon (Quinn). She wears this cheerleading outfit and now that she’s not pregnant (in the show) she is just unbelievably hot. I found the Season 2 opener pretty weak actually with not too many good songs and nothing really happening. I have a feeling the Sue Sylvester shtick might be getting old. I hope I don’t have to turn my back on the series but sometimes when you don’t expect much out of something and it exceeds expectations it leaves a different taste than when it’s supposed to be awesome and seemingly falls short.

Unrelated to Glee, I had the impressions done for my missing tooth. Chalk on another 1,800 dollars to my dental bill and all in all, my faceplant accident cost me close to 5k. That’s about 9k of pretax dollars and certainly makes saving any money a nuisance. People will say to learn from your past mistakes but this one was more expensive than anything I’ve ever been through and now I have a steel implant in my gum for the rest of my life. I’ll chalk this one up to a pretty major fuck up but I have another bizarre injury to add to my list of already bizarre injuries. Fortunately I will make it through with no real problems and will continue on with life the best I can.

TV

I’ve watched 2 shows that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. First one being Community on network TV. Generally network TV sucks, this show was no different. The main character sucked, Chevy Chase wasn’t funny, the foreign guy was forced stereotype retard, and the rest of the cast was no better. I didn’t think there was a funny part in it and won’t be tuning in again. This show follows the office and that is another show I just don’t get. Everyone raves how funny it is and maybe if you’re in an office atmosphere for a job it’s funny, but to me it just seems painfully dull. Does Michael have brain damage or something? I’ve seen a couple of episodes and I know his character is supposed to come off as dopey but I just can’t laugh at the stupidity. I laugh more at the way Kevin looks and talks than the things he says. Everyone thinks Dwight is hilarious but I think he’s mentally retarded. Jim is a smug a-hole who I just want to punch in the face. The girls on the show are all blah. I feel like everyone is overacting. I just really don’t get it. True, I’ve only seen a handful of episodes and maybe haven’t given it a chance but it just doesn’t make me laugh. Given the fact that so many people say it’s the best show I’m going to watch some episodes on Hulu but if I still think it sucks I’ll write about it.

Don’t watch bored to death on HBO because the title is telling. Jason Schwartzman is boring and Ted Danson has seen better days. I may watch episode 2 just to see what happens but I wasn’t amused at all throughout the pilot. What I can’t understand is how people who produce this stuff think its good. If I was working for HBO and watched that past episode, I’d be embarrassed to show it to the public. It wasn’t funny or gripping and the main character sucked. I’m probably hard on a lot of pilots but it’s for good reason. When I watched Californication for the first time 2 years ago I came out of the pilot saying 1) they showed me a nun giving out a BJ 2) they showed me Mia’s boobs 3) and the main character has charisma and is watchable. I gave the show a chance and it turned out to be one of the best shows on TV. I have no problem giving a show a chance but the first episode has to be entertaining or else I’ll move on.

I watched the curb and entourage as well. Regarding Curb, sometimes I think they play out Larry’s rants about weird stuff too long but its still amusing. I didn’t really think the first episode was all that great but I’m sure the season will be good. Leon being an 82 man is hilarious considering they are in LA. I always heard black people like the heat but 82 tips the scale. Entourage was pretty good for a change. I like the Ari-Lloyd feud and hopefully Ashley will say goodbye. I don’t know about anyone else but I have no interest in Turtle or anything that goes on with his character. I hope Jamie moves to New Zealand so Turtles character can stop being such a puss. I still think the season has been weak but at least this week was entertaining.

If I could find out to put this in the smallest font I would. I watched the first couple episodes of glee and the show isn’t bad. Putting all the gayness aside considering its about glee club, the show is well done. They have good character development. The cheerleading coach combined with the principal make for a hilarious duo. The dancing and singing stuff isn’t the reason why I watch the show but it’s still performed well. I won’t review this show due to its homo tendencies and it’s completely on the opposite end of the spectrum of what I usually watch but I’m honest about what I think and this show should probably not be canned.

Kelly Drive Bound, Down and Out

Clever title.  If you’ve seen Eastbound Down and Out you’ll appreciate it.  It’s not 100% accurate because the run I’m referring to was an out and back, not a down and out but it’s close enough.  The out part is clever because that’s what happened to me.  What you don’t do on an out and back is die on the way out.  Dying is a runners term for hitting the wall.  Hitting the wall is a runners term for being too tired to function properly.  Anyway, I was doing this 12 mile run, 6 each way and I did the first 6 perfectly fine.  Probably at a 6:30 pace or so.  Problem was the going back didn’t go to plan.  I did about 1 mile of the last 6 and it was all over.  I think my fastest time doing this particular run was 1:23 and change.  I ran the first 6 in 39:30.  Finished in 1:25 and that isn’t even including the 2 water breaks I took on the way back.  I was like the Jackson Browne song Running on Empty which I’ve actually grown to really like.  Nevertheless, I finished it without injury and will do better next time.

I was bored yesterday and went to Hulu.com to watch an old family guy or something but I’d seen them all and came across a show called Glee.  I had no idea what I was about to watch but I thought I read something saying it was decent.  It was set in a high school and there’s a teacher who becomes the head of the Glee Club.  By the way, his wife is really hot but she’s a complete bitch but does some good acting.  I can tell its not going to be a really funny series but it has some potential because the characters seem pretty well developed.  For being about something stupid like the Glee club I thought the show was above average.  I watched only the Pilot and the series is coming out fall of 09 but it’s worth a watch if you have 45 minutes to kill.  New good TV is coming out too with Weeds, True Blood, and hopefully Californication but I haven’t seen any ads for it yet.

I’ll leave 3 songs that aren’t necessarily new but good.

Black Heart Inertia – Incubus

Zero – Yeah Yeah Yeah’s

This Town – OAR (how old is this?)
