Gleeful: Daily Gratitude 12

I'm grateful for Glee.

Are you watching this show? If you're not, you need to be. I love it. Granted, I think I must be just about their ideal demographic. A theatre loving, music loving, former high school choir member, child of the 80s. The music on the show tends to be a mix of songs I grew up with, songs from musicals I know and love, and newer songs that make me feel vaguely hip for being aware of them. The humor is biting. The show is completely over the top and ridiculous, which makes the moments of tenderness (i.e. a father saying to his gay son "I've know since you were three") all the more likely to make me at least a little verklempt. It is my favorite hour of television. And today, when I realized I had a large chunk of time to myself, I was downright gleeful to realize that after a 2 week hiatus, I had a new episode of Glee waiting for me on my DVR.

What do you look forward to each week?

Hmmm, you've given me something to think about... I know what I dread every week and this post has made me wonder why I have filled my schedule with so many things I dread?

Oh, and I am NOT watching that show-- if this is the first season, we may get it in a year or two ;-)

Oh man. Now that I've seen the clip... we don't have Fox :-(

I look forward to my Friday night bath! (No TV for me, and I refuse to watch the clip so I won't get sucked in!)

Your daily gratitudes are so fun. Everyone needs an over the top show once in a while. And some chocolate to go with it! :)

I am, indeed, GLEEful, too.

I think this week's episode was the best so far.

And Kurt's dad rocks.

So does Kurt.

I totally love Glee. In fact, it's really the only thing I watch.
