Purple Pianos, Unicorns and Killer Hot Tubs - A New TV Season Has Begun
Well, the new season of Glee has begun – last week, in fact. I even have cable TV in my new condo. Truth is, I just can’t seem to get excited enough about either the first or second episode to actually write about them. I guess that is a review in and of itself.
So let’s see. . .Now that Kurt has acceptance and a great boyfriend, he’s freaking out because he is so very gay. As his Dad put it, “Not Rock Hudson gay, gay-gay.”
Finn is freaking out because he doesn’t know what to do after high school.
Rachel is freaking out because, even with all her talent and her Dads’ support, she is a senior in high school with no performance cred whatsoever. That seems very unlikely.
Shu is freaking out because Sue is running for congress on a platform of removing the arts from schools.
Quinn has reinvented herself yet again, this time as a goth skank. Oh, and Rachel’s birth mother, who is the adoptive mother of Quinn and Puck’s baby, is teaching at McKinley. Now Quinn’s freaking out because she wants custody of her baby.
So everyone is McKinley High is freaking out. The plot is even more unlikely and contrived than the first two seasons. I am bored and uninspired with what was once my favorite TV show, Glee.
Ryan Murphy is so yesterday. He bored me over the summer with his reality show, “The Glee Project.” Now he is continuing to inspire me to . . . yawn.
As far as new TV seasons are concerned, nothing on Glee so far can hold a candle to the new “American Dad,” where Celo Green plays an evil killer hot tub. This episode has better music, and a more believable plot, than anything I’ve seen on Glee so far this season.
