3 Reasons why to like (or at least respect) Glee despite its flaws

16 Apr

glee - don't hate us

1)Music – Even if some numbers are admittedly butchered, it’s still cool to have a musical TV show which tries to pay tribute to every kind of genre – hip hop, classic rock, musical, pop, punk and so on. And mostly watching these kids sing and dance is just fun (at least if you don’t try to judge whether the cover is as good as the original all the time).

2)Dialogues – Come on, Glee has some awesome dialogues and many really funny jokes. Often it’s Jane Lynch who makes us chuckle but she’s not the only one. And some of the jokes are much more mature than the high school concept would suggest.

3)Tolerance – This is the most important reason by far. There’s hardly any other show out there at the moment that preaches tolerance and equality the way Glee does. Glee has homosexual, bisexual, transgendered, physically and mentally challenged, and overweight main characters and they are not completely characterized by that. Glee is the show for the outsiders who’ll never completely fit in. If there had been a show like Glee when I was younger and it had been so popular, I would have been very glad.

Okay, haters gonna hate. I know how many people dislike the show but I hope you’ll consider the points I made.

Fans should help Fans

18 Mar

I guess you all have heard about it now, but there’ll be a Veronica Mars movie due to a huge successful kickstarter campaign. That’s great news and shows how powerful a fanbase can be.

Now, I don’t know if you’ve heard of the British television drama series ‘The Hour’, starring Ben Wishaw (Q from Skyfall), Dominic West and Romola Garai. It’s often been compared to Mad Men but it’s different and very charming in its own way. It’s been cancelled a few weeks ago, leaving fans to deal with a huge cliffhanger after the 2nd season. I guess every TV show fan can imagine how that feels. And that’s why I ask you for help. Please help this fandom, even if you’re not in it. All we want is closure.

There’ll be a Twitter trending attempt on Saturday, from 9 PM GMT on. Do the following: Tweet @BBCpress, @BBCTwoUK, @KudosTV (producers) or @BBCAmerica and use the hashtag #savethehour.
Could you do that for me? Could you do that for everyone in this fandom who is disappointed and sad? Please, Fandoms should help each other. Tweeting about it once doesn’t take more than a few seconds. You can even just copy the following tweet:

@BBCpress @BBCTwoUK @KudosTV @BBCAmerica Please give us a third season of The Hour #savethehour

Or simply retweet some other’s tweet about it. Please help us save The Hour.
