Hey peeps. After breakfast this morning I found myself with some free time. How to fill it, I wondered. Perhaps I could watch the new episode of Sungkyunkwan Scandal and spend a happy hour cooing over my new fictional boyfriend? (Moon Jae-Shin, you’re so dreamy! Already my heart feels anticipatory woe thinking on how you are destined not to be with Yoon Hee. I cannot decide whether I prefer love triangle with two likeable candidates or with one good guy and one detestable guy. Because with one my heart is destined to be broken and with the other I can only frustratedly demand to know why guy the second is even a contender?)
However! I had to eliminate this thought because I did not have an hour, only about 45 minutes. What could I watch? I was already caught up on TVD and Nikita. And then I came across hmsharmony
’s post where she mentioned liking this week’s episode of Glee. It was up on Global whispered a traitorous voice in my head. Without commercials it’d be about 42 minutes. You can always fast-forward if things start getting particularly irritating.
Dear flist I succumbed. I think there is some part of me destined to keep watching Glee no matter how frustrating it gets. Perhaps I should simply accept this as part of myself. I suspect it is a close cousin to the part of me that keeps reading the House of Night books even though they remain unremittingly terrible.
This week’s episode got me thinking over one aspect of Glee that is particularly irritating for me. (Just one! I acknowledge there are many ways in which Glee is terrible but this one stood out to me in this episode in particular.)( I am continually surprised at how the fandom for this show manages to be fifty billion times better than its source material. )
So much negativity is bad for my soul. I think I'm going to go cleanse it with that episode of SKS I didn't get to in the morning. =)
