For all you GLEE fans! (including ME!)

I think I owe The Frenetic Reader for forcing me to watch a pilot of a show called Glee way back last year. Sometime in the summer, when iTunes had the pilot for free I'd downloaded it. It was on my iPod and I was bored and I decided to watch it. Since that first moment, I was hooked. Until September, when the season aired, all I did was re-watch the pilot over and over again. Until September 9th, when I was there. Right in front of my T.V. waiting for the new episode of Glee!

And since then, I've diligently watched each and every episode and together with many Twitter/Facebook friends gotten others to watch it.

Now, there are some of you who may not have liked the show due to several reasons.
  1. You started watching after all the hype.
  2. You started mid-season. (you'd understand, but that connection would be missing).
  3. You just simply weren't interested.
But no matter what the reason, I will give you that there are times when I've shook my head and said, "Nope. That episode didn't cut it. It bored me. It didn't hold my attention". Its a given I would say. Everything has its up's and down's. Same with Glee. It's not flawless. Some of the plot-lines are ridiculously predictable. My friend from Word For Teens has called pretty much everything. She could practically be one of the writers.

Having said all that, I will add, Glee is a GREAT show. Mostly its REAL.

There have been such awe-inspiring, tear-inducing, rolling-on-the-floor-laughing-till-my-side-hurts moments. It is a show that came out of nowhere and captured everyone's attention.

Why do I say that? My mother hardly watches any T.V. with me. But every Tuesday, she was there. At 9pm. On the couch, with me, waiting for another Glee episode.

So, why am I writing this blog post. Well, tonight was the season finale. Some of you will not be watching it until about 30 minutes from now. But once you do, for your pleasure. I have some *IN REAL LIFE* pictures of some of the cast members for you.

How did I acquire them you ask? Well, you know the Glee Live Concert Tour? No, I didn't see them live. I just, walked past radio City Music Hall -where they were performing- and happened to come upon the back stage with my friend from Penultimate Page (while she was here for BEA).

Well, without further ado, I present you - GLEE CAST~!

  2. YOU SAW JONATHAN GROFF SO CLOSE!!! *I'm dying of jealousy here*. I'm a total gleek and I also got my mom to watch it and we plop down in front of my laptop ceremoniously to watch it every tuesday *live in Dom. Rep., no Fox USA here :'(*

    I love Glee. Can't get enough of it. SADLY, it ain't september.... YET! We should get a countdown widget.

    Loved the post!~

  3. Jeal-ous. Jealous. That's all I can say! I know the experience would have been different had I been there. Security would be pulling me off Puck. I know that. :-P

  4. GROFF! MARK! AHHHH! Glee is super fantastic amazing, as is this post. :)
    Why someone would not like Glee, is beyond my comprehension. It is such an awesome show.

  5. Oh, that is so cool! I walked by Radio City Music hall on Saturday while they were performing, but was too wiped out to wait around and try to catch them after-- there were already huge crowds.

  6. WOW! I love Glee so much! That is really exciting! Lucky you... But isn't this a book blog? Ha! If i got those pictures I would be posting them EVERYWHERE. If you have the time, check out the blog my friend and I created: A-Z Book Reviews.
