I've been meaning to get out my thoughts on Glee for a while. I absolutely love the show. It makes me happy and always leaves me entertained. And yet there's something about that is preventing from getting as "into it" as I've gotten into shows in the past.

This, I think is partly due to the fandom. So far...I'm not a fan of it. At least, I don't find it nearly as enjoyable a community to belong to as I have those of other shows. In generally it just seems like its to serious--too much complaining, too many theater-nerd geek offs. At the same time it's very excitable--too much squeeing over almost every little thing. And too fickle--people ship hop every episode. It'd be one thing if this meant many multi-shippers but in general it felt like people were doing the serious business thing over a different ship every other week. (What it needs, in short, is more lulz.)

This latter trait of the fandom is probably related to the series issues with continuity and choppy, incomplete/rushed feeling character/story arcs. This could be due to the fact that they were trying to squeeze so much into the first episodes for fear the series wouldn't be picked up. Which brings me to my next complaint--Will and Emma. I don't like it. I mean, I like the idea, but it was faaarrr too rushed for my taste. Really, I think we needed a more detailed back story of Will and Terri. And then to just have will go right from Terri to Emma is too much, too soon. They should have gone the Roy/Pam/Jim route. I'd have loved it then...and probably really have rooted for it. Instead I'm just indifferent-mildly annoyed.

All that said, I do LOVE the show.
