We received a bit of a treat in the mail a few weeks back from my thirteen year old niece back home – Season 1 of Glee. To be honest, right of the bat I was intrigued but thought it had huge potential for corny. I’d been putting off starting the season, knowing that I would either love it, and watch it all in one go, or hate it, and then have to make up reasons why I didn’t finish it.
But this weekend in it went and needless to say, I loved it. I’ve always been a sucker for teen angst anyway. All that pent-up drama…I actually have to give the writers a lot of credit – there’s a quite a bit of adult humor between the lines (which makes me wonder if the junior high community is catching all of these jokes or if they’re meant for parent chaperones?).
In any case, here’s to the arrival of season 2!
