You know me as a Â Disney fan, a Oncer or a Brony but I have a confession to make. Â I’m a Gleek. Â I know liking Glee isn’t popular because it’s not considered by many to be a good show but Â since the very first season, I love this show. Â I love the characters, Â I went through all the ups and downs of the show. Â And like most people, who watched the pilot, Â I was hooked the moment, I heard the Glee Club sing “Don’t Stop Believin'”
And I mean I would love to have a teacher like Will Shuester.
I always got the sense Â that he cared about the kids in his glee club. Â And Â when I watched the show, especially the early seasons, I felt as though I was a part of the New Directions. Â And while I am a horrible singer, I did sing along with some of the numbers because I got caught up in the moment. Â I bring all of this up because tonight is the series finale of Glee and I’m just not ready to say goodbye. Â I mean agree with other fans that it should have ended last season after Finn passed but now with the finale looming upon me, Â I don’t want it to end. Â I’ve been lying to myself with each of the promos this season saying how many episodes left, that “No, this isn’t true and there will be another season” but I can’t keep up this charade any longer. Â This show is special to me because not only did it introduce me to songs that I may have otherwise heard such as “Run, Joey, Run”,
It was also a show that my mom and I bonded over as I found in the second season, namely The Rocky Horror Glee Show, (Which in hindsight was okay), Â my mom watched this show as well and from that episode forward, we watched it together.
And to me, that is something special. Â I mean, I’m such a big fan that when they released the 3D concert in theaters for a limited release, I went to go see it. With my mom, of course. Â And Â I still maintain that concert was one of the best things that the show has ever done. Â Do I have issues with the show? Â Yeah, namely how much of a cartoon characters, Sue Sylvester is.
But Â Jane Lynch is quite Â good in the role. Â But Â I would be lying, if I didn’t say I still love this show. Â I do and Â those of you that listened to my Tribute podcast, I did when Cory Monetheith passed away, Â know Â that this show meant a lot to me. Â His Â death hit Â me hard with this show because his character, Finn was my favorite character. Â And having him pass away in real life was tough but then when Glee did the tribute episode for his character and acknowledged that Finn had died, Â it was just as hard. Â And from what I’ve read, it was hard for the cast as they could barely get through filming that episode. Â Especially Lea Michele, who played his Rachel, Finn’s love interest but beyond Cory and Lea were dating in real life.
I guess what Â I’m getting at here is that while Â I may Â not talk about my love of this show that much here, Â I’m gonna miss it Â and Â there is a hint of sadness in me knowing that this will be the last time I see these characters together. Â Again, I know that a lot of people deem it uncool to like this show but I don’t care because I LOVE this show and I’ve loved it since it first started. Â Having said that though, my Â love has not blinded me to some Â of the missteps that the show had taken. Â And there may have been a few bumps along the ride with this show but it’s a ride that I was happy to take. Â And I’m just not ready to get off of it. But alas, the time has come to say goodbye to this show that I will always cherish. Â And to close it out, I’m going to share with you, their two Disney covers. Â Hey, I had to work Disney into this somehow. Â So, to Â end this Â I give you Â their cover of Bella Notte from season 2 and from this season, Lea Michele’s take on what else, Let It Go.
