The gays seem to be all atwitter about the pilot for the new series Glee that Fox aired after American Idol tonight. It seems many of them are relating to the themes of being picked on by jocks and singing songs from Grease. I had been excited for it as the previews looked great, but after watching the pilot I want that hour of my life back. I found the storyline boring, the characters nothing to cheer for (mostly just caricatures who showed no depth), and it was so predictable (we were calling out the dialogue and story points before they happened).
From fourth grade until I graduated, I was teased mercilessly about being gay. I did the drama and chorus thing. I also ran faster than just about anybody else in my school. My high school life encompassed the entire show, so I should have related to a lot of the show. But I didn't. Isn't the "chorus is for geeks" and "jocks are assholes" storylines overdone yet? What did you think? How did you relate to it and did you like it?
