driven by television

Loopy and I drove home from Calgary... how shall I put this... in very good time today.  We wanted to make it back in time to watch Adam Lambert vamp and screech his way to American Idol victory.  He did not disappoint.

After Idol, we watched the sneak preview episode of the new Fox series, Glee.  Seriously, friends.  It is time to get your geek on.  This show will take you back to high school and soundly shove you in your locker and duct tape the door closed.  It is that much fun.  

How bummed were we to find out that tonight's sneak peek episode has to last us until the fall when the rest of the season airs?  Wasn't it the Fox network that made a name for itself when it started up by offering new original programming during the summer months when the major networks played repeats?  

We were only more bummed when we visited iTunes to download the glee club versions of Journey's Don't Stop Believing and Amy Winehouse's Rehab.  Really, really bummed.  Canadian iTunes subscribers can't download the versions... ugh!  This is like, so unfair.  Totally.

I loooooovvvvvvved "Glee" too...and was also HIGHLY peeved that we don't get to see it until the fall. What in the heck are we supposed to watch until September?? Give me a break!

I didn't get to watch Glee. Sorry I missed it. I am looking forward to So You Think You Can Dance. A new season starts soon. I watched it for the first time last year and absolutely LOVED it. I always wanted to be a dancer and watching this show enforces that feeling.

Adam was awesome last night. The song Kara wrote really sucked. Seriously. That was the worst song they have ever forced on them at the finale. I would have been embarassed if I were her. Simon had it right...hurricanes? mountains? I think they should let them pick all their own songs in the final competition instead of pushing something on them that may not suit them.

I'm so glad you linked me to the new Glee show. It is so much easier to follow the link than to walk to the couch, turn on the tv and try to find out when it is on the boob-tube. I'll just sit in front of my computer forever. Keep the links coming, sista!

I agree, very harsh to tease viewers with a show they can't watch until fall. Even harsher to keep our Canadian friends out of the downloading.

Oh yes, Adam rocked and if he doesn't win, I may just have to say 'pffffttt' to AI next year. Just maybe. AND...I was so looking forward to GLEE as well. Loved the cute and ever-so-adorable commercials. It was such a fun show and I will definitely watch it again...if I can remember to tune in after the summer...what is with that anyway??? sheesh. I need something fun for summer watchin and now they have gone and burst my tv-watchin bubble. phooey.

We were anticipating Glee, here too! Just a little bit to keep us hungry for more, I hate when they do that....How about that music though, Blast from the Past!

Thanks for the package that came in the mail. They are very sweet!

I posted today about the arrival!

My life is consumed right now with baseball/softball and all the practices and games that come along so I have missed the last 2 weeks of Idol. I had no idea that they were even going to show Glee after. I'm bummed cause I wanted to see it. And we have a game again tonight so I am going to have to record the Finale.

LOVED Glee as well! Can't WAIT for more!

Ive gotta say the song Kara wrote for AI sucked big time..what the heck was she thinking when she wrote it. I doubt anyone could sing that song perfectly..ugh!!!

That is so typically Canadian!

If Chris wins Idol I will, I will, well I don't know what I will do but I sure won't be happy!

Saucy said...

That was some special Hell that Kara wrought upon us in the form of the "winners single" last night. My ears bled. I hope she enjoys her last night on television tonight.

Oooh, I taped Glee...you know how I love me some good TV.

Christine said...

At first I thought that Glee was going to be stupid but now that I've seen more of the commerical and that preview I think I'm going to have to watch it. Apparently if I was going to watch any American Idol season it should have been this one because I've been hearing alot of great thing about it. Oh well.

Loved Glee!!!!! Loved!

Sorry your Adam Lambert didn't win (well, I'm not, because he's creepy, but I know you like him)!

By the by, I mentioned you a couple times in my new blog. My old one went the way of the dodo, but I have high hopes for the new one. :)
