Are you a gleek?

Since it's not a secret that music rocks my writing world, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Glee is one of my favorite television shows. Love the music, the writing, the schemes, the romance (need more Will & Emma), the rivalry, the celeb guest stars... Okay, I just love the whole damn thing.

And here are ten reasons why:

1. Corey Monteith a.k.a Finn - Yes, crush territory here, and it doesn't hurt that his dad lives fifteen minutes from me and I've yet to give up hope I may catch a glimpse of him some time when he's visiting.

2. I'm a sucker for shows involving teenage drama.

3. Sue Sylvester - Politically uncorrect as hell and yet so much fun to watch. Her journal scenes kill me.

4. Glee brings out my inner pop star and reminds me of all the times I used my hairbrush as a microphone and sang to my own reflection. Oh wait, I still do that.

5. Um, Corey Monteith.

6. Will & Sue - Their banter is hilarious, not to mention the numerous cracks about his hair.

7. The show makes me grateful that as much of a geek as I was in high school, I never got any slushies thrown in my face. Of course, it was an all-girl high school...

8. John Stamos - MmmmMmmm

9. It's a great show to relax and enjoy after promoing my latest release, Trust Me. ;)

10. And we can't forget...Corey Monteith.

So what about you, are you a Gleek? What do you love about the show? Any episodes/songs that you adored? And if you're not really a fan, what celeb guest star would make you want to tune in?

I love it, too!

Love the show, mainly for the music. The ongoing teen drama doesn't do much for me, but the actors are all great musical comedy people. And it was really fun seeing people like Gwyneth Paltrow singing.

I have to admit, I haven't watched the show. All of my friends rave about it, though.

It's more of a time thing than anything. I just feel like I can't add one more thing to my schedule these days. *sigh*

I feel so left out that I don't watch this show. Truth is I hardly watch ANY TV any more. You're not alone in your love of it, Skylar!

I missed this post on the day you wrote it! I'm a Gleek-- big time! Finicky and I schedule around the show... sad, but true. My fave guest star is Neil Patrick Harris so far, though Gwenyth's character was great!

I'm super late to this but I am the biggest GLEEK!! :) I love this show so much. I always buy all the music as soon as it comes out! :) It reminds me of my choir days in high school. I never had anything thrown in my face at school (thanksfully we weren't thought of as outcasts!). I hope this show never stops (alas allt he shows I love go away all too soon!). :( I love the mash ups and new versions of old and new songs. I just love everything about Glee. ;) I sing non stop all day long and this show just encourages me that much more!
