Can Everyone Stop Watching Glee Please?

I STILL haven't got around to watching Glee for which I am obviously a disgrace.

I will say though that if I took the word Glee and the phrases "I'm watching" or "I love " or "is now on TV" from my Twitter feed I wouldn't have a Twitter feed at all. I'd have a picture of me and some inane rumblings.

It isn't that I don't want to watch Glee. I do. I'm a huge fan of Ryan Murphy's work, not least "Popular" the short-lived but brilliant teen series he co-created and produced ten years ago (ten years ago, christonabike). I just have a busy schedule of not doing anything constructive and procrastinating. So once I can fit Glee into that I'll be happy.

I will get round to Glee. I just have to get back around to Gossip Girl, Mad Men, Melrose Place (it feels wrong but oh so right to put those two together), 30 Rock, Cougar Town, Arrested Development, Damages, 90210 and finally start watching The Wire, The Sopranos and The West Wing and other shows with The in the title so I can name-check them at dinner parties. And Jersey Shore on MTV so I can really understand what the gossip blogs are talking about and so I can indulge my love of all things New Jersey.

Seriously, how do people find time to do anything more? All this telly to watch, all this music to listen to... I. CAN'T. COPE.

Just thinking about makes me do this face:

If someone would like to pay me to watch these shows in the name of research and upholding dinner party etiquette feel free to get in touch.

Disclaimer: I have never been to a dinner party. 

It would be nice if we could get rid of that awful cover of the already awful "Don't Stop Believing" though. It hurts my ears.

Until then if people could calm down with the watching of the Glee and all that I would really appreciate it. 


Until then I am :
