THINKING with ‘GLEE’ on GLEE

It was March 2015. One of my Family Members bough a Glee DVD in Pretoria. It was Season 1. It was lying around the house. I was bored. So I decided I would take a look. I had nothing else to do. So I watched it. Needless to say, I was hooked.

I didn’t know much about the Show. I read its name in magazines and stuff, but I never bothered to learn or watch it. The only thing I could remember was one of their actors died. I learned it was Corey Monteith, who played Finn Hudson. He was soon my favourite Character. Can you believe it? It was on for 6 years and I never bothered to watch it. I can kick myself for my stubbornness. I only discovered it when Season 6 was at its end. Then all the Fan Fare was away. All the hype, all the Glee

Quickly I watched the other seasons and one, two, three, I was a Gleek. I learned so many new songs and watching the Show made me experience different kinds of music. It exposed me to a lot of singers. Singers I otherwise never would have known existed.

It made me learn the issues and complexities of life. All high school kids should watch this show. You will learn about life and all the social issues and problems we face every day and how to deal with it. As the show progress you will learn lessons along the way. The characters can be identified by each one of us. Me, I see myself in Artie.

Here is a list of my TOP 20 songs that were performed on Glee

  1. Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond
  2. Coming to America- Neil Diamond
  3. Teenage Dream- Katy Perry
