I’m a Gleek. There, I’ve said it.
I know, I know… “It’s corny and stupid, and lame,” as most of my friends believe, but I have mixed feelings about the show. It all started in June 2009. I was on our family vacation, and we’d just come back to our hotel, awfully tired after the city tour. I showered and changed into my pyjamas, got in bed and turned on the TV. When I switched channels, I came across this show but it had ended. A new TV show called Glee was next, it said. I was curious, and that’s how my fixation started.
The first episode was amazing, and I fell in love with the story and the characters. Mr. Schue, Rachel and Finn, and Sue were my favorites. Principal Finnigan made me laugh. After the first episode ended, I stalked the show on google. And then, I started watching the show on regular basis, crushing hard on Cory Monteith who played the male lead, Finn Hudson.
Like I said, I have mixed feelings about the show. Tragedy struck when Cory Monteith passed away. It was a huge shock for me. I cried for days, believing it to be a sick joke. It was devastating, really, and for a while I had no interest in the show because the story was getting lame, even for me, and with Finn gone, I believed the show will go down the drain.
A few friends who were watching Glee, abandoned it soon after Cory’s death. But I didn’t. I was a fan, and I will be forever. However, I do admit that the last few seasons were disappointing. Very disappointing. They lost that spark, when Cory died. His character was essential to the show. Just like Lea’s Rachel, Cory’s Finn, was in essence, Glee. They were the whole show. Also, I shipped Finchel (the Fandom’s name of their relationship) religiously.
They announced that there will be only 13 episodes in the sixth and final season of Glee. With only two episodes left until the series finale, I thought I should write a blog post about it. Even though, I get annoyed sometimes with the new seasons, I still can’t believe the show will be over. The last episode showed flashbacks of their old episodes, and I started missing the previous seasons so bad that I’ve decided to watch the series again from the beginning, before the finale.
The Glee journey has been for 6 years, and come rain or shine, I was a part of it whether I liked it or not. I watched the characters grow, and live, and I also grew up with them. I was a part of The Choir Room, and I witnessed their highs and lows. For me, it was all real, instead of being fictitious. The series finale is going to be very sad, and I know I’m going to bawl like a baby when it’ll be all over.
