I love comedies and I have always love musicals, so I guess it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that I’d fall hard for a show like this. It brought out the singer, the dancer in me, no, the entertainer in me. (Oh God, I feel like one of those delusional phycopaths in the American Idol audition only to be told 'you suck’).
And please, do not even try to suggest this is yet another poor version of 'High School Musical'. It is sooo not. In fact, they are poles apart. That teen musical that has Zac Effron in it was all about popular kids, who sang and danced their way to their graduation day, without misplacing a single strand of hair. Glee is all about misfits (the geeks, and the unpopulars) who love to do what they do, which, something they are passionate about and of course good at.
And admit this, aren’t this bunch simply the much better singers and dancers than any of, heck, the whole cast of 'High School Musical' put together?
I guess, the show reminds me a lot about me during my high schools years a while back then. OK, minus the singing and the dancing. No one did that. So I guess I was just a geek. But I vividly remember I did share the very same passion and I was hopeful and full of 'dreams'. Sadly, my 'dreams' never did come true. (I was told many years ago, I didn’t have this thing they called ‘talent’ to make it in the business, bah!).
I feel them. I can totally relate myself to the story. I feel it best embodies everything that’s should be right in my life 20 years ago. I should've been allowed to do what I wanted to do. Things that’d make me happy. So I wouldn't feel so trapped. Like how I feel. Now.
The show is soo cool, it doesn’t even matter what people's gonna say about it or me. I am singing my way to the bathroom now.
Cue the music, please!
