to actually love Glee?

(104 Posts)

blush Do I have to name change now?

I'm watching it now as I recorded it so I can skip through the adverts. I actually love it. I sit and sing along to the songs and just enjoy watching it.

I have no idea why either.

Am I alone? Is this a sign of needing a life?

Btw I am in love with Blake blush

YorkshireDeb Wed 23-Jan-13 22:43:16

No YANBU. Glee is amazing. But puck is my favourite. X

allthegoodnamesweretaken Wed 23-Jan-13 22:43:21

YANBU I love it! Well the first 3 series anyway, watched a couple of the new series and wasn't impressed.
Rachel's character was my favourite, she reminded of my younger self in a way blush. (Not so much the destined for stardom thing, but definitely her neurotic side and the social embarrassments)

Blaine**

I was obsessed with Puck for the from first series onwards. He is gorgeous and I was actually glad to see him in the other episode.

I lobe Blaines voice!

Puck on the guitar though is amazing.

MrsBungleBear Wed 23-Jan-13 22:48:19

YANBU! Best programme on TV! I also record it and skip the ads.

I like Puck and Britney S Pears.

threesocksmorgan Wed 23-Jan-13 22:50:33

YANBU
I don't watch it, but dd(sn) loves it....so peace

BackforGood Wed 23-Jan-13 22:53:02

No, YANBU - tis fab. Well, the first 2 series were before Sky took it off me sad
My dcs watch it on line, but whenever I've tried to do that it seems to get about 1/2 hour in and then just freeze. Oddly enough, that was what I was watching this evening - watched one episode fine but now it's stuck on the next one I was watching.

It's a great programme though - fantastic music. smile

I love it and I am far too old to have s crush on puck blush The first episode was on a few days ago so I'm watching it from the start again smile

The new fella that's interested in Rachel is gorgeous.

SJP singing. Why oh why?

allthegoodnamesweretaken Wed 23-Jan-13 22:58:47

BackforGood you need to try and find a putlocker version, they're the best I've found.

threesocksmorgan Wed 23-Jan-13 23:00:02

dd has the concert dvd, there is a very hot guy in it

Cherriesarelovely Wed 23-Jan-13 23:04:05

It is an amazing show. So clever and funny and the musical arrangements are incredible. We absolutely adore it in my house.

MyPetMonsterAndMe Wed 23-Jan-13 23:07:10

No, YANBU, it's a good show. I'm also totally in love with Blaine blush

MrsBungleBear Wed 23-Jan-13 23:07:55

I watch The Glee Project too!

The new guy is hot but he is not a patch on Finn.

Makes me wish I could sing. While its on I can pretend though grin

BackforGood Wed 23-Jan-13 23:17:47

SPsF.... a what ? (you've lost me on the technical details there blush

bruffin England Wed 23-Jan-13 23:20:18

My Dd 15 is huge Glee fan and I still enjoy it. Dd is a member of something called the Dappers who are the Darrren Criss fan club.
Its great because Dd will listen to such a wide range of music because of glee.

Nanny0gg England Wed 23-Jan-13 23:20:34

I'm too old but I love it! Not sure about series 4 though. I miss Mike Chang. I loved his dancing with Brittany.
And all the singing is truly lovely.

Back Technical details on what?

13Iggis Wed 23-Jan-13 23:34:53

Watched it tonight. Makes a refreshing change from all the serial killer programmes I seem to watch blush

BadRoly Wed 23-Jan-13 23:37:19

This is mine and dd1's guilty pleasure! We have just finished series 2 and ordered series 3 and loved it! It's been great for opening those mother/daughter chats too!

bruffin England Wed 23-Jan-13 23:38:32

If you like Glee, you must see Pitch Perfect

YorkshireDeb Thu 24-Jan-13 03:47:16

Ooh, dying to watch pitch perfect. And yes, the glee project is also brilliant. Surprised blane won this series though x

swooosh Thu 24-Jan-13 03:56:30

Glee is amaaaaazing! Pitch Perfect is a MUST SEE if you lov Glee.

roundtable Thu 24-Jan-13 06:06:31

Love Glee! I made my dh take me to their last concert and they were frigging amazing! Dh sat with a face like a slapped arse until they started singing and he was taken aback by the quality of their voices.

Now he sits and watches it with me every week. grin

Dogsmom Thu 24-Jan-13 08:32:14

Me too smile

I've watched them all so many times and have them ready on dvd for when I start my maternity leave in 2 weeks when I shall have a Glee-fest.

Loved the Glee Project too.

MrsReiver Thu 24-Jan-13 09:04:13

Oh YADNBU, I love Glee, it's complete escapism. Glad to see no one here has claimed Sam so I can have him and his gorgeous trouty mouth all to myself!

Sam is not at all attractive to me but when he sings I seem to love him grin

littlewhitebag Thu 24-Jan-13 10:10:43

Mt DD and i love, love , love Glee. It is our guilty pleasure and we watch it before DH comes home.

elliejjtiny Thu 24-Jan-13 10:28:23

I love glee and the DC's love the songs (they are 6 and 4 so don't let them watch the whole thing). DS2 is a wheelchair user and he wants to learn to dance like Artie.

MrsReiver Thu 24-Jan-13 10:43:10

Sam is not at all attractive to me but when he sings I seem to love him

All the more froggy lips for me!

Artie is wonderful, and I great role model IMO. I know some folk get arsey about the fact the actor is able bodied but Artie's dream sequences wouldn't be possible otherwise.

I LOVE Becky so much, and Sue's scenes with her sister - OMG, my brother has Down Syndrome so we all live with the knowledge that we will probably outlive him so they really spoke to me. I howled!!

jojane Thu 24-Jan-13 10:48:05

I also like smash, which is a grown up version of glee in that they are involved in a broadway musical.

BackforGood Thu 24-Jan-13 19:46:37

SFP... you said 'a putlocker version'......
I don't even know how to find the version I was watching... my 11 yr old did it for me blush

BackforGood Thu 24-Jan-13 19:48:42

So when (and what channel) are Pitch Perfect and Smash on then ?

Samu2 Thu 24-Jan-13 19:49:48

I love it!!!

Love love love Blaine/ Darren Criss

He even better when he isn't playing Blaine

www.youtube.com/watch?v=me1ZNMxRqpE&list=FL3ef8TqaffxvGwo0p6lPS9A

bruffin England Thu 24-Jan-13 19:52:16

Pitch Perfect is a recently released film. I saw it just before Christmas.

Glee is so well written - so touching and funny. Kurts dad is the best dad in the universe - his storylines have had dh and I in tears. It's such a ground breaking show with their liberal values.

Totally fab.

SnowWhiterThenWhite Thu 24-Jan-13 20:17:39

You are not alone! God I adore Puck. Not even ashamed to admit I saw The Glee cast on Tour two years ago. Mark salling is even more of a babe in the flesh (Btw I'm 23 and not perverted I swear!) and I love love love Rachel!

bruffin England Thu 24-Jan-13 20:48:27

The moment I saw Rachel in the first episode I said to Dd she looked just like a young Idena Menzel whom we had seen in Wicked. So pleased she turned up as Rachel's mum, it was perfect casting.

Nanny0gg England Thu 24-Jan-13 21:16:14

You do know that Puck is 30 in RL, don't you?
grin

YorkshireDeb Thu 24-Jan-13 21:23:31

Is he really? Wow - only 4 years younger than me - I feel so much less guilty now. X

tedmundo Thu 24-Jan-13 21:42:29

YANBU .. Glee is fab.

I even went to see the show at the 02 arena last year!

I was THIS close to Darren Criss singing Teenage Dream (The Warblers performed on a secondary stage in the crowd) and even though it has been 20 yrs since I was a teenager, I was in bits!

Puck is 8 year older then me! Do I care? Of course not grin

Back That wasn't me. I have no clue about technology grin

bruffin England Thu 24-Jan-13 22:15:36

I'm still old enough to be his mother.

Love Glee. Dp told me yesterday that he misses Mercedes.

I'm not a Puck fan though. He's too smarmy and arrogant. Sam on the other hand...

BackforGood Thu 24-Jan-13 23:32:10

Oh, sorry SPsF - it seems I can't even read straight, let alone anything else grin
I should have said AllTheGoodNamesWereTaken.... but I suspect the moment has passed now.... blush

Mad Puck is gorgeous. When he played the guitar and sang I fell in love grin

Back No worries grin just type it into google and hope for the best

goldface Fri 25-Jan-13 20:08:14

oh im really glad to see this thread!! i flippin love glee and have a ridiculous thing for Blaine...but i'm a, ahem, a few years older than him...its no ok is it?...

Puck doesn't look right with a guitar, he's like a toddler with one of them plastic ones with buttons.

labtest Sat 26-Jan-13 10:22:44

I am not keen on season 4. I miss the old lot especially Santana and Mike Chang.

BadRoly Sat 26-Jan-13 10:44:57

Puck is 30 in real life?! shock

I feel so much better knowing that - far less wrong than thinking he was 17 wink

mrsjay Sat 26-Jan-13 10:49:33

No not at all I love glee although not loving the new series as much but hanging in their yanbu

mrsjay Sat 26-Jan-13 10:50:14

god know you can see mark sailings wrinkles it is fine to perv like him I LOVE PUCK

bruffin England Sun 27-Jan-13 20:40:08

Cant believe how diddy darren criss is.
Says he is 5'8 but he is inches shorter than chris colfer who is supposed to be 5'9

kim147 Sun 27-Jan-13 20:50:34

I like the way it's so inclusive.
And the music.

prettysunset Sun 27-Jan-13 20:56:58

Me too! Love it! I have trained (!) my 6 year old to do the Kurt and Rachel 'Wicked Witch' duet with me even though I wont let her watch Glee yet. My only beef with the show is Brittany's diction- stop mumbling woman! My favorite ever scene was when Sue was telling Becky about her scan and Becky says 'you're having a little girl like me?' and Sue says something like 'Yes. A little girl. Just. Like. You.' <Sob!> just lovely! Which child could have a stronger Mum to fight their fight with them than Sue?!

smugmumofboys Sun 27-Jan-13 21:38:44

I love Glee. I love the show tunes, the dancing and I especially love the cheesiness of it all.

I'm recording tonights as the toddler is still up

EarlyMorningBaconDemon Sun 27-Jan-13 22:18:15

As long as noone tries to fight me for Nolan Gerard Funk, we'll all be just peachy and this thread will be all nice!

And YANBU - GLEE IS AWESOME

13Iggis Sun 27-Jan-13 23:01:32

I was so pleased last week when the bow-tie was ditched, I hated that thing.

13Iggis Sun 27-Jan-13 23:03:30

Nolan Gerard Funk - I can just see that name in the baby names category on here!

Loving this episode! Songs are great and I'm singing along like a loon

EarlyMorningBaconDemon Sun 27-Jan-13 23:09:34

Nolan Gerard Funk is the utter beast. He is delicious. But if anyone agrees - I have dibs on him!

I wanted him back in Xmen 2. And then again in Warehouse 13. So you Gleeks can all bugger off - mineminemineminemineminemine!!!! angrywink

MrsReiver Mon 28-Jan-13 08:40:29

He's the Evil Warbler isn't he? You can keep him grin grin grin

mrsjay Mon 28-Jan-13 08:43:47

aww thought last nights was good and a little sad I cried at brittney and santana, DD2 is obsessed with darren criss she is into star kids which he was in google them they are funny Harry potter the musical is grin

bruffin England Mon 28-Jan-13 08:49:40

My dcs love the Harry Potter musical.
DD had already watched the episode online and sat there telling me how sad it was all night and texting her friends who were all crying apparently.

Mimstar Mon 28-Jan-13 09:33:53

Oooh yay, a Glee thread! I am absolutely completely obsessed..my DH got me a cheerios mug for christmas and made me into Quinn grin Photo on my profile.

I am not sure what to make of 'the new rachel' though, and I sobbed my heart out over Brittany & Santana - they are my faves. Santana, really. I am definitely might be in love with the actress who plays her.

I'm so happy to see other Glee fans! Glee version of 'We are Young' is one of my favourites.

BadRoly Mon 28-Jan-13 09:54:37

Oh I am so far behind you all sad we have only just finished season 2 and will start season 3 this week...

Mimstar Mon 28-Jan-13 10:09:25

Oooh BadRoly I am actually jealous of you, I wish I could go back and watch them from the start having not seen them!

I loved last nights. I wont give any spoilers though!

I actually thought I'd be a lone Glee lover on MN

MrsReiver Mon 28-Jan-13 10:35:17

Watching last night's episode this on catch up, do I need tissues?

MrsReiver Mon 28-Jan-13 10:38:59

Apparently so. sad

Yes you do sad The songs are great though

MrsReiver Mon 28-Jan-13 11:04:56

Sob! This is heart wrenching. And they've made me like Coldplay, that alone is unforgiviable.

TheBlackBagBorderBinLiner Mon 28-Jan-13 15:23:45

The New Normal - by the Glee producer, 20ish minutes of comedy, no songs but its got the Glee 'swimming coach' and a character spouting vile Sue style lines. On Channel 4

bruffin England Mon 28-Jan-13 16:18:41

Dd made me watch it Blackbag. Found it quite funny.

I watch that too. I quite like it

bruffin England Mon 28-Jan-13 17:44:37

The lead female is Georgia King who is a british actress who normally appears in costume dramas, its a completely different role for her.

mrsjay Wed 30-Jan-13 08:31:28

Glee is the best. Darren Criss is sex on a stick. Also Blake Jenner. And Chord Overstreet. And and and YUM.

The singing's pretty good too grin

cakebar Wed 30-Jan-13 10:30:08

Puckerman is so sexy that even my DH says he would have him and he is normally as straight as they come

lol at anyone that thought he was 17 grin

cakebar I know, right?? Both he an Corey Monteith are REALLY starting to look their ages now! (They're both 30.)

thistlelicker Wed 30-Jan-13 10:47:50

goodtoesnaughtytoes Sat 02-Feb-13 21:30:29

I watched The Break Up yesterday on sky+. Omg it was so good. And the song at the end! Best episode ever I think. I keep watching the song over and over cos Kurt's voice gives me chills it's do beautiful.

EarlyMorningBaconDemon Tue 05-Feb-13 22:10:29

I watched "Naked" last night - thought I was going to PASS OUT!! grin

PenguinBear Mon 11-Feb-13 20:04:17

harrythechicken Sun 24-Feb-13 20:29:40

No not unreasonable just plain stupid and distasteful, why just why. people like you need to be force fed to factory pigs and id still feel sorry for the pigs. However after watching an episode I think it is actually watchable!

LizzieVereker Sun 24-Feb-13 20:32:26

I love Glee, I am not ashamed. (links arms with SP. A does a little jazz hand with free arm.)

MagratOfStolat Mon 25-Feb-13 21:16:44

I sincerely love Glee.

Oh, and I watched Wreck-It Ralph the other day. JANE LYNCH OH MY GOD. I was like shock grin when I realized!

I love the wedding episode - that song that Emma practically rapped was incredible.
